He drew out his sword, with which he had cut back all the vines outside, and gently slipping the blade between her two breasts, let it rip easily through the old fabric. While being imprisoned in a cage, Laurent contemplates the recent punishments he received as a runaway on a wooden cross, recalling its pain, degradation and undeniable pleasure.

What it turned out to be was pages of rape and sadism and degradation.

The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty by A.N. Roquelaure

Yes, everything else aside, the writing in this book is unbelievably bad. I felt sick to my stomach on many occasions, especially when Prince Alexi tells the tale of his own abuse and degradation.

She knew I collected fairy tales and their adaptations. The Road to Cana I have no idea what possessed me to read it.


Look, whatever floats your fictional boat is fine, but for me this was actually pretty repellant. And these books offer all kinds of gender combinations; women dominating men and women; men dominating men and women.

Well, a four hour plane ride later, I thought there would be no harm to pre read a little bit. But did I have any idea that would happen? I have been to kink events all over the east coast. This is not that.
