The final book in Anne Rice's erotic Sleeping Beauty series

Before E.L. James' Fifty Shades of Grey and Sylvia Day's Bared to You,, there was Anne Rices provocative take on the timeless fairy tale “Sleeping Beauty. “ In the final volume of Anne Rice's deliciously tantalizing erotic trilogy, Beauty's adventures on the dark side of sexuality make her the bound captive of an Eastern Sultan and a prisoner in the exotic confines of the harem. 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. In it, Anne Rice, writing as A.N. Roquelaure, makes the forbidden side of passion a doorway into the hidden regions of the psyche and the heart.

Synopsis:

In 1983, Anne Rice, writing as A.N. Roquelaure, began the first installment of the trilogy that is now considered a forerunner of erotic literature.  This trilogy, containing the books The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty, Beauty’s Punishment, and Beauty’s Release is a testament to Anne Rice’s irresistible talent.  Now in a repackaged edition, Rice’s charged eroticism and magical style is back, connecting old and new readers alike.

Anne Rice was born in New Orleans in 1941, the second daughter in an Irish Catholic family. She is the author of many bestselling books. She is perhaps best known for her incredibly successful Vampire ChroniclesInterview with the Vampire, The Vampire Lestat, The Queen of the Dammed, The Tale of the Body Thief (published in Penguin) and Memnoch the Devil. Her other books include the Mayfair witches sequence The Witching Hour, Lasher (both published in Penguin) and Taltos; the novels Cry to Heaven, The Mummy or Ramses the Damned (both published in Penguin), The Servant of the Bones and, recently, Pandora, the first part of her New Tales of the Vampires series.

She lived for many years in San Francisco but has now moved back to her native New Orleans where she lives with her husband, poet and university professor Stan Rice, and their son.
