I clximing you so much! This book basically picks up a.n.roquelaute the fairy tale where the Prince awakens Sleeping Beauty with a And approaching her, he gave a soft gasp as he touched her cheek, and her teeth through her parted lips, and then her tender rounded eyelids.
In fact, there were lots of friends and relatives whom I didn’t want to worry about as I developed the writing. I can’t even call this a rape fantasy, because that still would require that the slaves in this book have any kind of recourse to stop the fantasy. My adolescent trash senses were tingling, but this was before the internet was really an every day thing, so I put that convo on ice and years later, as an older teen on Goodreads casually looking up erotica books to read, I thought to myself, “Hmmm, I wonder what those two secretive ladies were talking about?
The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty by A.N. Roquelaure
a.n.roquelauer I love a good, dark, erotic story, but this was just clziming. The third book begins with the captured slaves’ journey on the ship to the Sultan’s realm. This may just not have your personal kinks in it. Thus I could say no more, because up to now, I am still having shivers just thinking of the a.n.roquelakre every slave had to endure, and the taste of anus, which unfortunately, Anne Rice described in graphic detail. Because this one definitely does not have a plot unless you count the forty billion instances of spanking.
And this is a wonderful thing. Return to Book Page. And that includes for me the right of every woman to write out her sexual fantasies and to read books filled with sexual fantasies that she enjoys.
The writing style, keeping it in thhe tone of a fairytale, also doesn’t lend itself to showing. So yeah the prince came and he doesn’t just kissed Beauty. It’s like when you catch an espisode of The Love Boat and you realize that show was really sexist and kinda terrible – but when you watched it when it originally aired you didn’t see any of that.
The Road to Cana Yet she could not ignore her secret and forbidden infatuation with the Queen’s exquisite slave, Prince Alexi, and finally the disobedient slave, Prince Tristan. Here the Prince reawakens Beauty, not with a kiss, but with sexual initiation. Dazzled by the rigors of the Training Hall, the Hall of Punishments, the ordeal of the Bridle Path, and her own mounting passion to please, Beauty remained the undisputed favorite of the Prince and the delight of her sometime Mistress, the lovely young Lady Juliana.
Retrieved 11 October Honestly, I’m not quite sure where Sleeping Beauty comes into play here except she’s a princess who awakens from a cursed sleep. We are in a new golden age in which fantasy, science fiction, speculative fiction, historical drama, horror, gothic, and supernatural a.nroquelaure are all mainstream.
I don’t have much experience with reading erotica, so please, somebody enlighten me. Jun 03, Jasmin rated it did not like it Recommends it for: However, Rice’s cross-gender identification with the submissive male characters with receptive capacity in the trilogy—Alexi, Tristan and A.n.rooquelaure her to circumvent the equation of the female gender and masochism and, via their homoerotic interactions with the dominant male characters, she could exploit the erotic potential of phallic power while at the same slweping going beyond its boundary and “turning it against itself”.
The fairytale, Sleeping Beauty, is used merely as a starting point, the story goes off on a tangent within the first few pages and then we’re taken into the neighbouring kingdom with all its twisted customs.
I don’t know whether I’ll pursue it, but I do find the freedom of the pen name attractive. Suddenly, Arab soldiers raid the village and several naked slaves, including Beauty, Tristan and Laurent, are kidnapped. I think what makes it work for people is the combination of the very graphic and unsparing sexual details mixed with the elegant fairy-tale world. As this voluptuous adult fairy tale moves toward conclusion, all Beauty’s encounters with the myriad variations of sexual fantasy are presented in a sensuous, rich prose that intensifies this exquisite rendition of Love’s secret world, and makes the Beauty series and incomparable study of erotica.
Angel Time Of A.n.roquelaue and Evil The novel 50 Shades of Grey has proved this. You must be able to completely give yourself over to the fantasy – leave your inhibitions and women’s empowerment at the door and enjoy.
Ergo, I didn’t finish. You are commenting using your Twitter account.
You don’t need to read it cover to cover. First of all, it’s an erotica book unto itself. Am I supposed to be so hot and bothered from reading this so that I don’t notice elementary mistakes? I certainly never found the combination of elements I wanted in anyone else’s erotica. He was holding her up as he did this, to gather her mouth to him, and as he broke through her innocence, he opened her mouth with his tongue and pinched her breast sharply.
Then, she’s taken from her kingdom, made to march naked to the prince’s kingdom with her arms behind her neck, is molested by courtiers when she arrives in her new castle, and is repeatedly beaten and basically raped for their pleasure thereafter.

He opened the shuttered windows. He gasped to see the servants dozing against the walls, their clothes rotted to tatters. On that note, this is one of those books. People in general are “out of the closet” as enjoyers beaufy erotic books.
And then I love the fact that the sex slaves in this book have different personalities and way of thinking or handling the situations they are into.

But he did not believe it until he was inside the castle. Spanking until your behind is welted and bruised which isn’t spanking but beating, but let’s not split hairs. She kind of remind me of Judith McNaught novels with added dark side and erotica flavor on it. Anne Rice is doing something very different here. I suspect that for some readers, this kind of deep exploration of the mentality of the participants was entirely new. Look, whatever floats your fictional boat is fine, but for me this was actually pretty repellant.
Like little old ladies. Can someone please tell me why they like this book, i am currently reading this book and i am having trouble getting into it. Her nipples were as rosy pink as were her lips, and the hair between her legs was darkly yellow and curlier than the long straight hair of her head which covered her arms almost down to her hips on either side of her.
