Child of the Sun

Child of the Sun appears to be the story of gay Roman Emperor Elagabalus (sometimes, Heliogabalus). Most famous for trying to make sun worship the main cult of the Roman Empire. Supposedly he gave his boyfriends important political offices. He was an unpopular ruler and the accounts left of him were written by his enemies.

The makeup lets the reader know that the Emperor is a pervert, probably a homo.

Elagabalus aka Heliogabalus : Gay Roman Emperor

The authors wrote quite a bit of trashy historical fiction including Plantation Romances (lots of whips and interracial sex).
