Once Upon a Bedtime
Why is it that Goldilocks climbed into so many beds? Face it, fairy tales have always been kinky—from beautiful queens tied up in knots to the wolf that makes Red Riding Hood blush. In this distinctive collection of racy romances, Kristina Wright seduces us with tales that are playful, supernaturally sensual and very, very naughty. The beauty in “The Seven Ravens,” by Ariel Graham, uses a series of magic keys to finally unlock the door to her secret wish. A lonely maiden sneaks into the Winter Ball in Valerie Alexander’s “Mine Until Dawn,” and binds her new love in a devastatingly erotic story of dominance. A brawny beast of a man sweeps an aristocrat off her feet and right into his bed in “Black of Knight,” by Victoria Blisse. Submit to the spell of A Princess Bound.
"Wright's latest collection will titillate and captive readers with 17 tales of princesses finding erotic pleasure in dominance and submission. Fans of witch tales will delight in 'Mine Until Dawn' by Valerie Alexander, wherein an after-sex after-midnight photo plays the role of the glass slipper. A woman's fantasies of humiliation and punishment turn into reality in Ariel Graham's 'The Seven Ravens.' A common theme of trust, emotional connection, and tension heightens the reading pleasure. The sameness of the stories may not appeal to experienced readers who want more diverse plots, but for newcomers to BDSM, these tasteful erotic stories will fuel the imagination and whet the appetite.
