I just couldn’t put roauelaure down. She kind of remind me of Judith McNaught novels with added dark side and erotica flavor on it. Lots of people enjoy imagining themselves passive, in the hands of a beautiful lover, male or female, who will force them to enjoy themselves.

That is, she must surrender to several years of humiliating sado-masochistic sexual servitude at the hands of the aristocr This is a scrumptious sexual feast from Anne Rice, writing under a pseudonym. I don’t think any of the characters in this book know the true meaning of sleeping. However, I was dismayed to find that this was a book about contrived and unneccessary punishment with a ridiculous premise.

My paper books disintegrated many years ago A must-read for those who enjoy such themes. After their arrival at the exotic land of the Sultan, the captured slaves are groomed by a group of young boys and examined by Lexius, the Sultan’s steward. It was announced in September that Televisa U. I found it weird that one was told in the 3rd person and the other in 1st. The first book Claiming of Sleeping Beauty, followed Beauty after she had been awakened from her long sleep.

Very good, my girl Many people think that violence is all bad. Despite my usually high tolerance for kinky stories, I struggled through this book, with my teeth clenched and my fists balled in anger.
