A.N. Roquelaure is better known as Anne Rice, the celebrated author of Interview with the Vampire; under the names A.N. Roquelaure and Anne Rampling she is writer of highly acclaimed works of erotica.
Voluptuous imagery and graphic scenes...Roquelaure pulls no punches
(or holds back no spankings). The fairy-tale setting provides an
apt stage, and the magical world clearly marks the erotic action as
fantasy. * Kirkus *
[A] thumbs-up.... BEAUTY'S KINGDOM is a delightful, immersive read, all at once playful, campy, explicit, erotic, and provocative. * Publishers Weekly *
Rice's lush prose is elegant and enchanting, reminiscent of classic historical fiction in its lyrical structure and elaborate description. * Library Journal *
