Stranger on Lesbos (Femmes Fatales) by Valerie Taylor

Sexy, beautiful, frustrated... a neglected housewife finds the delights and degradations of forbidden love.

Frances, a 1950s housewife, becomes bored with her suburban life and enrolls in a class at the local community college. When she meets Blake, a butch lesbian, her life completely changes. In thrall to a forbidden world of martini lunches, late nights at queer bars, and a sexual passion she never knew was possible, Frances must choose between the safety of heterosexual marriage or the dangers of life on the edge of society.

Femmes Fatales restores to print the best of women’s writing in the classic pulp genres of the mid-20th century. From mystery to hard-boiled noir to taboo lesbian romance, these rediscovered queens of pulp offer subversive perspectives on a turbulent era.
