So it's kind of hard to explain but I really like books where there is a sort of rise to power by a women through female politics. You know like 'Memoirs of a Geisha' how they groom her through her Geisha phase in the book so she can become the future "Mother". Or harem politics like in 'The Heretic Queen' and 'Nefertiti' which are obviously set in Egypt about women trying to capture the Pharaoh to become queen. I confess I like the romantic element but it's not mandatory. I know this is not a technical genre but hopefully I explained it well enough. does anyone have ideas?
