Before E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey and Sylvia Day's Bared to You, there was Anne Rice’s New York Times best seller The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty

In the traditional folktale of "Sleeping Beauty," the spell cast upon the lovely young princess and everyone in her castle can only be broken by the kiss of a Prince. It is an ancient story, one that originally emerged from and still deeply disturbs the mind's unconscious. In the first book of the trilogy, Anne Rice, writing as A.N. Roquelaure, retells the Beauty story and probes the unspoken implications of this lush, suggestive tale by exploring its undeniable connection to sexual desire. Here the Prince awakens Beauty, not with a kiss, but with sexual initiation. His reward for ending the hundred years of enchantment is Beauty's complete and total enslavement to him . . . as Anne Rice explores the world of erotic yearning and fantasy in a classic that becomes, with her skillful pen, a compelling experience. Readers of Fifty Shades of Grey will indulge in Rice’s deft storytelling and imaginative eroticism, a sure-to-be classic for years to come.


Praise for The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty:

"Articulate, baroque, and fashionably pornographic." ?Playboy

"Something very special . . . at once so light and yet so haunting." ?The Advocate

Anne Rice was born in New Orleans in 1941. She is the author of many bestselling novels, including the widely successful Vampire Chronicles.

  • Anne Rice must be a dominatrix

    This book isn't for the faint of heart. It is not a vampire book. I'm not sure what it is. It's complete sado-masachism. I wasn't particularly offended, but I'm afraid some people might be. I wouldn't be surprised if my review doesn't get posted because this book is RATED X! I said I would recommend this product to a friend, because I have friends/family who are Anne Rice fans. That is the only reason.

  • Great book

    Great book, exactly as I was expecting. Haven't read another book like this. The story line doesn't falter. Not for the faint of ear. Delivery was fast and all was GREAT :)
