Editorial Reviews

Gale Research
Rice counters the critical assessment of these works as pornographic in a People interview: "I wrote about the fantasy that interested me personally and that I couldn't find in bookstores. I wanted to create a Disneyland of S & M. Most porno is written by hacks. I meant it to be erotic and nothing else -- to turn people on. Sex is good. Nothing about sex is evil or to be ashamed of." Moreover, in a Lear's interview Rice maintains, "they're of high quality . . . and I'm very proud that I wrote them."
Playboy
A beautifully designed boxed set of erotica by the bestselling author. Rice's enormously successful "Beauty" books are based very loosely on the Sleeping Beauty tale, and explore just about every sexually explicit fantasy imaginable. "Articulate, baroque, and fashionably pornographic."
