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.

Annabelle isn't the only Honeycote familiar with scandal. Her sweet little sister Daphne isn't so innocent after all, and if her secret is revealed the whole Honeycote family could face ruin.Before Daphne was a Duke's sister-in-law, she was a simple girl with a very sick mother. To help pay for their mounting medical bills, lovely Daphne agreed to pose for two very beautiful - but very scandalous - paintings. She was assured that the portraits would be part of a private collection and would never ben seen in public. But now, two short years later, everything has changed. Daphne is making her debut into London society and one of the portraits has fallen into the possession of Benjamin Elliot, the notoriously stern Earl of Foxburn. When Foxburn meets Daphne he recognizes her instantly. And though normally he wouldn't care about the secrets of a silly debutant, Daphne has captured the attentions of Foxburn's young ward. Convinced Daphne is an improper choice for a wife, but not wanting to disappoint his ward, Foxburn offers her a deal: if she agrees to discourage his ward, he'll locate the other painting, return both to Daphne, and keep her secret. But soon Foxburn has his own secret to keep: he too has fallen in love with Daphne. And he'll do anything it takes to win her love.
