Before E. L. James and Sylvia Day, there was Anne Rice: DiscoverBeauty s Kingdom, the fourth novel in the bestselling Sleeping Beauty series

Mega-bestselling author Anne Rice, writing as A. N. Roquelaure, returns to the mysterious kingdom of Queen Eleanor in this new chapter of her Sleeping Beauty series. When the great queen is reported dead, Beauty and Laurent return to the kingdom they left twenty years before. Beauty agrees to take the throne, but she insists that all erotic servitude be voluntary. Countless eager princes, princesses, lords, ladies, and commoners journey to Beauty s realm, where she and her husband usher in a new era of desire, longing, and ecstasy. Provocative and stirring, Rice s imaginative retelling of the Sleeping Beauty myth will be adored by her longtime fans and new readers of erotica just discovering the novels.
This book is intended for mature audiences.

Review quote

Voluptuous imagery and graphic scenes...Roquelaure pulls no punches (or holds back no spankings). The fairy-tale setting provides an apt stage, and the magical world clearly marks the erotic action as fantasy.
[A] thumbs-up . BEAUTY S KINGDOM is a delightful, immersive read, all at once playful, campy, explicit, erotic, and provocative.
Publisher s Weekly
"Rice s lush prose is elegant and enchanting, reminiscent of classic historical fiction in its lyrical structure and elaborate description"
