An erotic novel of discipline, love and surrender from master storyteller Anne Rice. This sequel to The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty resumes Beauty's explicit, teasing exploration of the psychology of human desire and seduction. Now Beauty, having indulged in a secret and forbidden infatuation with the rebellious slave Prince Tristan, is sent away. Sold at auction, she will soon experience the tantalizing punishments of 'the village,' as her education in love, cruelty, dominance, submission and tenderness is turned over to the brazenly handsome Captain of the Guard. Once again Anne Rice's classic tale of pleasure and pain dares to explore the most primal and well-hidden desires of the human heart. This is the second of Anne Rice's classic Sleeping Beauty trilogy.

Don't even know where to begin... This has been the worst book I've come across. I bought out of curiosity and what can I say curiosity killed the cat and I think a few of my brain cells along the way. I lost count of how many times someone got spanked for no good reason, it seemed to be the only thing the pages were filled with, spank, spank, spank. I thought Ms. rice was a serious writer and still scratching my head on how she could think that raping someone was right and sexy! WRONG! DON'T READ

Totally different from here usual subjects. Way off the wall. Somewhat disturbing. Riveting.

If you enjoyed "The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty" then this is a must read. It keeps you wondering what is going to happen next and is just as sensual if not more so than the first book.
