This book is like porn. The book closes as they are sent across the sea to serve in the palace of the Sultan. You may have been told that sex is a sacred act between two married people who love each other and you should wait until you get married. Anywho – I still found the writing quite good in this book, and although the book has lost it’s shock factor for me now, I still found parts of the book raised my temperature a bit hee hee and I will probably put this book right back on my shelf in the basement to read again in a decade or two to see what my AARP card does to my opinion of this book.
Sleeping Beauty Trilogy by A.N. Roquelaure
But it’s been years since I’ve read it, and remembering it still makes me shudder. The language is oddball, the world is complete fantasy, and it’s grossly politically incorrect by today’s standards. The demand for such romantic fantasies grew and grew. Now, I will not tell you the what happened in this series. There are endless motifs offered for dominance and submission, for surrender and love.
I love Anne Rice, but half way into book one, I was tired of all the spanking. The opening showed promise – he scales the castle wall and finds the cursed princess in her bower, powerless to stop him from doing Whatever – but it quickly became clear that neither the prince or his newly claimed princess-sla Pardon me, but even in porn I want to like, or identify with, at least one character.

However, this unconventional education in sexual hardship and liberation ends in a monogamous, patriarchal marriage between Beauty and Laurent. This is breaking people, and the entire story that Alexi tells just makes me want to throw things. And they’ve sold steadily ever since they first appeared.
If she passes this test, she will be allowed to marry the Prince and sleepung her royal status. Beauty and Tristan copulate as Nicholas watches behind a one-way mirror. I was horrified, with all respect I think this book is mentally, psychologically, twisted, there’s no romance, there is almost no feelings to it whatsoever.
See all 4 slee;ing about The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty…. But he did not believe it until he was inside the castle. That’s why I’m not rating this book, as it wouldn’t be fair to lower its average rating “on purpose” – not that I think one rating would cause such “damage”, but anyway I didn’t like it at all.
Okay so I just finished the beahty and I really like it. Both end up gaining some sort of affection for their masters and their firm discipline. There is nothing sweet in this story. She then sentences both Laurent and Tristan to the village stable for Laurent’s rebelliousness and Tristan’s failure to become a good slave.
I loved how creative and imaginative the stories were as well as unbelievably rough, raunchy, and sizzling hot. Can’t say that I would recommend it. Recommended to Nataliya by: Yet the worst part of this roqudlaure fucked up world is the spankings.
The Sleeping Beauty Trilogy
But no one is to touch her. Her flaxen hair lay long and straight over the deep green velvet of her bed, and her dress in loose folds revealed the rounded breasts and limbs of a young woman. The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty is still one of my favourite erotic novels even years later.
Age could be a reason they are being banned so beauhy stop this give the books a rating like video games. Shortly after that night, Beauty sees that Prince Tristan was being sent to the village for punishment. I want to bleach my brain after reading this. Everyone lived happily ever after Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account.
I mean, who the hell administers a rudimentary enema in a kitchen, anyway! I’d say it is a ‘must read’ for anyone interested in bdsm. Refresh and try again. It’s a common idea, and it cuts across gender and class. Did I mention spanking? I think I’m going to have to suck up the price and buy ecopies of book 2 and 3 also. Ann Rice made this more adult. And these books offer all kinds of gender combinations; women dominating men and women; men dominating men and women.
For reasons unknown to Beauty, she ran in order to be punished as well.
