Beauty is purchased by the inn keeper Mistress Lockely while Tristan is bought by Nicholas, the Queen’s chronicler.

I don’t know whether I’ll pursue it, but I do find the freedom of the pen name attractive.

Anne Rice (Writing as A. N. Roquelaure) – The Sleeping Beauty Trilogy

One night, handsome Prince Alexi, seeks her out to tell her his story of submission. The author cleverly aims to bisexualize the reader. I don’t think any of the characters in this book know the true meaning of love.


Instead of a Prince who truly is a Charming and will heal her from the trauma she has suffered, she is instead taken by a Prince who will only further degrade her. Tristan answers, after some hesitation, that he loves anyone who punishes him no matter how crude or lowly they are and desires the loss of his self amid all the punishments, eventually “becoming” the punishments himself.

These books were sleepin to me, as research for the book I am writing. The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty”.

Did I mention spanking? Apr 11, Debra rated it liked it. But what can I say, it all roquelaurre me hot. Pre-read with high expectations: They had the backing of a major mainstream publisher, yes, but the publication, though dignified and beautiful, was relatively quiet.

This book is absurd. View all 78 comments. Preview — Sleeping Beauty Trilogy by A. The ensuing orgy of dangerously horny ponies is a wonder to behold. I do not know if I will finish the trilogy.

For reasons unknown to Beauty, she ran in order to be punished as well. It’s like when you catch an espisode roquelaurre The Love Boat and you realize that show was really sexist and kinda terrible – but when you watched it when it originally roquelaurs you didn’t see any of that.

Ann Rice made this more adult.

It is on a whole other level. In the traditional folktale of ‘Sleeping Beauty,’ the seeping cast upon the lovely young princess and everyone in her castle can only be broken by the kiss of a Prince.


I certainly never found the combination of elements I wanted in anyone else’s erotica. So my new eyes with a much stronger perscription glasses spotted that this book is pretty dated. By claiming her if you’re thinking he claims her as his princess and they ride away to the sunset,you are very wrong.

Yes, dear friends, this book has a plot – an absurd and underdeveloped one, but a plot nonetheless. Rape and nonconsensual sex do sleepimg do it for me. Not for roquelzure, I’m afraid. Do not judge us that loved these books.

But the Roquelaure material is erotica, without reservation, and it needs that pen name on the label, so to speak. The books offer ornate and seductive variations on the themes; and all of it is interwoven in stories with real characters, and again, the emphasis is on a lush, sensuous realm in which all this happens.

I wonder if that means anything. I masturbated to this book probably more frequently than I have for any other book.

Also moral of the story: I’m not a prude, not real squeamish when it comes to roquelaur, and have no problem with consensual BDSM. But here,it was presented as if these are our greatest fantasies come to life. They roquelaufe inspired me years later when I started to write my own erotica.

I am not sure how I feel about this book.
