Book Review: BEAUTY'S PUNISHMENT BY A. N. Roquelaure

I know what you are thinking, why go to onto the second book in the series? Well I am going to break it down like this; the first book “The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty” was wild but it left me with an irresistible urge to continue. I just have to know what happens with Beauty and her time of punishment in the village.

The punishment in the village for Beauty really in my mind was not as bad as it possibly could have been. I think the worst part was when she was auctioned off. She was showed to the village like she was some sex depraved mule. Luckily she was purchased by a wealthy woman inn keeper but in reality Beauty was not so lucky when it came to the punishment the woman would inflict on her.

Personally if I was Beauty I would have rather been in the village with the inn keeper than at the castle with the not so charming prince. In this one once again I will not going to too much detail for the protection of the innocence out there but if you are looking for a really off the wall S and M slash erotica read this one might be just your cup of tea. Please keep in mind though it is very graphic with sex, violence, and is not the straight laced type of erotica you would commonly think of. In case you are wondering yes I am reading the last book in the series right now called “Beauty’s Release” and will be reviewing that one also.

3/5 much better than the first for me that one was just so degrading but looking back I think that was meant to break Beauty so she could be the perfect slave. She had to experience the degradation to do her service and there just was no way around that. I enjoyed that the awful prince was not present in this book instead the romantic aspect is replaced by the hunky stallion Tristan ooh he even has a hot name. Tristan was a pleasant shift from the castles prince. I am glad I have started this because I need a bit of variety in my life and this is for me gong from one extreme to the other. Change is good when you’re in the mood for it.

X-Rating for straight and gay sex, bestiality, and violence.

  1. It is certainly an...interesting series. Kinda like a horrible car wreck - you don't really want to look but you just can't help yourself!

  2. I'm glad that you have found something different to read for a break - sometimes you just need something so different.

  3. Robinbird, you hit the nail on the head. I enjoyed it because lately I seem to be in a dark mood and it was so different it gave me a new world I could crawl into. You are right I could not help myself.

    Dolleygurl, I agree break up things for a change. I like to stir things up a bit every once in awhile. I did read the final one too and it was a good ending I thought.

  4. Have to agree with Robinbird on the car wreck comment. I have read a few of this type of book but they weren't all that good. With a good author and good plot and development, it might be worth another try.

  5. Pat your so right. This was my first of this type and I think it will be my last erotica I figure it is nice just to know what is really out there.
