Publisher's Summary

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.

Wow

I've always loved this author, and this series, and once again I wasn't let down, you MUST give it a try, although it certainly won't be for everyone and definitely not for the faint hearted

an ok read

To much anal sex for my taste. Not clear on why this is needed. I read it bef6years ago, it didn't leave an impression. I read it this time and it sounded foreign to me.
