About This Item

London: Macdonald, 1987. Octavo, boards. First British edition. Second book in the Beauty trilogy. Some darkening to text block, a fine copy in fine dust jacket. (#83263)

Synopsis

The Second of the Classic Erotic Trilogy of Sleeping BeautyThis 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.
