An erotic novel of discipline, love, and surrender for the enjoyment of men and women.
This sequel to The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty, the first of Anne Rice's elegantly written volumes of erotica, continues her explicit, teasing exploration of the psychology of human desire. Now Beauty, having indulged in a secret and forbidden infatuation with the rebellious slave Prince Tristan, is sent away from the Satyricon-like world of the Castle. 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. And once again Rice's fabulous tale of pleasure and pain dares to explore the most primal and well-hidden desires of the human heart.

Thank GOD for audio books, if I didn't have them I'd never get anything done!
I honestly got tired of the sex and I can't believe I am saying that. I like hot books but honestly this was too much for me. This is the first in over 180 audible books that I felt that way. I finished the first book and stopped about half way through the second. I guess I need at least the hope of a happily ever after and I guess I just don't have that in this. There is no hero/heroine combo it is not quite my speed I guess.
