Publisher's Summary

In the final volume of Anne Rice's deliciously tantalizing erotic trilogy, Beauty's adventures on the dark side of sexuality make her the bound captive of an Eastern Sultan and a prisoner in the exotic confines of his harem. As this voluptuous adult fairy tale moves toward conclusion, all of Beauty's encounters with the myriad variations of sexual fantasy are presented in a sensuous, rich prose that intensifies this exquisite rendition of Love's secret world and makes the Beauty series an incomparable study of erotica. In it, Anne Rice makes the forbidden side of passion a doorway into the hidden regions of the psyche and the heart.

Erotica

The books in this series are unapologetically erotic. If sex between all genders and bdsm is your thing this book will be a delight.

Beauty Book 3

I loved the book. Anne Rice did an excellent job with writing this book, keeping with Beauty's journey and she was excellent with being so descriptive, making you feel like you were part of the story.

Not what I was expecting.

THE series has alot of sex, bondage, and great aspects, but I feel the story line didnt bring me in and make me feel like I was there.bi have listened to many books that have had me squeeze my thighs and squirming in my seat wanting to get the hubby home ASAP. This series did not do that even a little.

The male reading was extremely cringy.

The constant mispronunciations and horrible voices used for different characters made listening horrendous. Just horrible!

Anne Rice You are wickedly crazy brilliant!

What a series. Sick and wild. Anne Rice has one naughty imagination but also brilliant.
So much torture and crazy emotion.
I loved these extremely hot and naughty books. First books to ever really get my "blood hot" lol Moor please.
I loved the ending. Finally some Love and passion. But wow what a crazy erotica.

performance issue

the book was pretty good but the Male performance really killed it. I had to fast forward through a lot. female performance was good and easy to listen to.

Good Story. Male reader is TERRIBLE!

Story is what it is and it delivers. Don't get me wrong, the female reader does well, but the male reader leaves SO much to be desired. Completely incompetent - all of his parts should be reread.

Good story, needed a better male reader

I loved the book itself, honestly the only thing I didnt like was Corbins reading. The different voices he does are way too forced and dramatic, and overall irritating to the senses.

Rubbish

What disappointed you about Beauty's Release?

Complete and utter rubbish. Read a saucy book years ago by Anne Rice, thought this would be similar. Very disappointed

What could Anne Rice have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Not written it

Would you be willing to try another one of Samantha Prescott and Corbin Steele ’s performances?

No

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
