Claiming Of Sleeping Beauty
Well-known novelist Anne Rice penned this S/M trilogy (this is the first volume, Beauty's Punishment and Beauty's Release follow) under a pseudonym because of its deliciously scandalous content. Rice chronicles the adventures of Sleeping Beauty who, upon awakening from her slumber, finds her heart and body under the rule of her princely deliverer. Countless broken taboos fill these volumes. 1983, 253 pp.

I loved this book! The theme of submission (how difficult it is to submit, the desire for strong leadership, etc.) is well thought out and expressed. After reading this book (and forcing my boyfriend to read it and the two that followed), my boyfriend and I were so turned on that we have started experimenting with spanking/bondage. Any book that can make me curious enough to try something new is awesome! Two thumbs up (four, if you count my boyfriend. :) )
