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.

Read by Genvieve Bevier and Winthrop Eliot.

Listener Opinions

    " All 3 books are pure erotica. A.N. Roquelaure is really Anne Rice. After reading a few of her books I decided to pick these up too. I saw a review once that said that these books could have been combined into one book because it got repetitious of the same sequences happening over and over and I agree. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Jostalady | 2/5/2014

    " This was shocking, I couldn't believe she wrote dirty books. I took a break frow Anne for a long time after this one... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Stephanie O'Hanlon | 2/3/2014

    " I definitely enjoyed the sequel more than the original, especially the bits with the Captain & Tristan and Beauty together. Definitely a good read! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Anna Keraleigh | 1/28/2014

    " This is the sequal to that stranger erotic series by Anne Rice. Absolutely speechless on this story. I mean, fruit stuffed up a woman, after that how can you comment? Yeah, I still found it an absolutely amazing read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 ellen newcombe | 1/27/2014

    " Definitely my favourite of the trilogy. All of Tristan and Beauty's introspection about the nature of their submission is really what made it for me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lindsay | 1/19/2014

    " I can't believe how normalized I am to these books even by the end of book two. My level of wrong has risen very high indeed. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Valerie Zapp | 1/19/2014

    " intense and enthralling. getting ready to start the third book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Renee Wolcott | 1/16/2014

    " More orgies of submission in the dreaded medieval village. The pony play theme is expanded upon. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Becca | 11/28/2013

    " Seemed repetitive after the first novel in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jamie | 11/23/2013

    " My husband and I enjoyed this series. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sara | 10/18/2013

    " This was terrible!! I understand the shock value of these books, and they entertained me in a horribly cheesy way, but when beastiality is introduced, I stopped reading. Not going to read any more and don't recommend them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liz | 10/16/2013

    " Hmmm, I never thought of sleeping as a sexual deviant! This book is part of a triology, that engrossed in sex, punishment,lust,etc. The book is definitely a good read. Keeps you in suspense. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tricia | 10/16/2013

    " I actually kind of liked this book. There was not nearly the same abuse as the first one, granted there are some really weird (and sick) things that go on, I did not feel the disgust as I did in the first one (OMFG! did I already acclimate to this!) This book was more sexual then degrading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Farrah | 10/6/2013

    " If you have read the first in the series...you know...the rest... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nicole Cantor | 9/1/2013

    " She's still hitting you with so much spice in this sequel. Absorbing and sexy. Darker fantasy fanatics everywhere need to read these. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Frances Katrina | 8/31/2013

    " More episodes of BDSM. Not my type. But since I got started with the trilogy and finished book 1, I decided to finish this to move on to book 3. If BDSM is not your line, then this book is not for you. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Photojim | 6/25/2013

    " Same complaints as the first book but more so. I'll read the third to finish the story. Or should I say, what little story there is. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mega | 5/12/2013

    " classic s&m. Nothing to do with Disney's version. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Autumn | 5/5/2013

    " Well written, but not as good as the first. The character of the Captain is fantastic. Not very realistic, but fantastic none the less. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ariel Murray | 4/20/2013

    " I only liked because of Tristan and Nicolas' relationship. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ashley Banas | 4/20/2013

    " Unrealistic book about bdsm part II. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robin | 3/20/2013

    " Wow, the effect these books had on me was unexpected... at first. But then, I just couldn't put these books down for a minute. I had marathon nights with these little books. If you're easily offended by the hard core sadist theme, these books are not for you... Definitely, not cute, prim romance... "

    " Got it the first time. "
