The pendulum has shifted in Catherine's life once again. Four years after peeling back the curtain on The Janus Chamber, we find her now ironically working as a political journalist, settled into a mundane routine and dating life because she chose to tell the truth about Inana Luna instead of embracing a life of decadence with The Juliette Society. Meeting a man who reignites her passion for cinema and guilt-free sex makes her realize what she's been missing, but an unwanted scandal douses the flame. Forced to lay low, she finds an opportunity to take back her career with a human interest story in Honduras, but there are people who see Catherine's article as a threat and will do everything they can to stop her from writing.The world she finds is unlike anything she's ever seen. Catherine is The Mismade Girl, and as her life is turned upside down, she must choose to either perish . . . or be remade anew.

Beauty's Kingdom

A.N. Roquelaure
Authors:
A.N. Roquelaure

Years before the erotic novel became a phenomenon, Anne Rice wrote the bestselling Sleeping Beauty trilogy. It is now twenty years since the fabled Sleeping Beauty and her prince, Laurent, left the mysterious kingdom of Queen Eleanor, where they had known voluptuous erotic slavery together. Suddenly the great Queen is reported dead and the survival of the kingdom is in peril. Beauty and Laurent are implored to take the throne and to uphold the ways of complete sensual surrender that have made Eleanor's realm a legend. Beauty agrees, but with one twist: she insists that all erotic servitude be voluntary. She and Laurent strive to rebuild Eleanor's land as a newer and finer paradise of luscious abandonment and never-ending sensual pleasure.Countless eager princes, princesses, lords, ladies and common folk journey to Beauty's new Kingdom where she and her husband awaken their domain, ushering in a new era of desire, longing and sexual ecstasy.Provocative and stirring, Rice's imaginative retelling of the Sleeping Beauty myth will be hailed by her longtime fans and new readers of erotica just discovering the novels.
