Are those tears of joy I see running down your face? They had the backing of a major mainstream publisher, yes, but the publication, though dignified and beautiful, was relatively quiet. 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.

I didn’t like it at all. Certainly no one is killed.

The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty by A.N. Roquelaure

And since there are only so many ways to spank somebody and this book quickly explores ALL the possibilitiesthe book quickly becomes quite repetitive and incredibly boring.

Retrieved 9 October It’s like when you catch an espisode claimign 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.

Can’t say that I would recommend it. As far as I can tell, that’s its only use.


But I wouldn’t continue Beauty’s story. But the Roquelaure material is erotica, without reservation, and it needs that pen name on the label, so to speak. The book ends as Laurent marries Beauty, saying that they shall live happily ever after, or perhaps “a good deal happier” than anyone a.h.roquelaure could ever guess—hinting that they will continue the pleasure of dominance and submission with each other.

Just don’t expect this book to be romantic. She did not know. During the last leg of the voyage, the Captain tells Beauty that she is to be released from the servitude because of her parents’ demands and, to her great dismay, sent back home to get married—she hysterically protests, but to no avail.

There is a huge amount of bondage and physical punishment. I think she just saw “Sleeping Beauty” and assumed I’d want it. The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty was the worst book I’ve read all freaking year.

For me, this book sucked in a big way! Roquelaure Anne Rice is not a native English speaker. I mean, who the hell administers a rudimentary enema in a kitchen, anyway! I could already imagine all that the prince had to endure to save the princess, which is absolutely amazing for my standards.

The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty

Beauty and Tristan copulate as Nicholas watches behind a one-way mirror. Every page is meant to give you pleasure. Pages 1 – Anne Rice tries to do the same, but it’s mostly just gross and depressing and sad. Sleeping Beauty was treated more like a sex toy rather than a princess in this book. 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.

I get that some people are into that, and if you find someone who would thhe to do that stuff with you and there’s consent and that’s your jam, then whatever, but I find it totally off-putting and do not enjoy reading about it. I think it’s authentic to the way many who share this kind of fantasy really feel.

He gasped to see the servants dozing against the walls, their clothes rotted to tatters. Peeps who don’t mind BDSM and porn. Don’t even start me on grammar and punctuation! This book is absurd. Whoever claimed that the story told in this book has anything to do with Thhe ought to look up the term and learn that one of the key elements of BDSM is the ability to make it stop, with a safeword that ends either the scene or the relationship.

I gasped, I frowned, I cringed and I gagged – oh boy!
