In Sleeping Beauty's Bed

In Sleeping Beauty's Bed, all I can say is what a rush!! This is for everyone who has always thought that the fairy tales were missing something spicy. This is the grown up fairy tales that you always knew existed. I had a hard time putting this book down. It was always one more page, one more chapter, one more story.

This book is definitely on my keeper shelf and will be keeping an eye out for more from this author. Who knew that the glass slipper in Cinderella was actually the main point of the whole story? You always knew there was more between the big bad wolf and Red Riding Hood, right?

I loved this book. I didn't think I would as, like everyone, I felt I was too old for fairy tales, even ones that said they were for the grown ups. I was wrong and this book should definitely be put on the keeper shelf of everyone who has any sense of imagination left in them. This book has just enough spice to keep it interesting, but not over the top where you can't stand to read it.


Book Blurb for In Sleeping Beauty's Bed

Fairy tales are rich sources of sexual fantasy—sexy slippers, mattresses piled high, dominatrix witches, lustful princes, naked emporers... Seasoned erotica author Mitzi Szereto restores the sex in the 15 tales in this provocative book—and adds a few surprises of her own. Here the bawdy humor of French fable meets the sublime eroticism of ancient Chinese myth as a far-from-virginal damsel weds a Prince Charming with a shoe fetish. Little Rid Riding Hood discovers Grandma's bed is open to any stray wolf. And a Japanese monk stumbles onto an S/M scene behind a forbidden door.
