Overview

Ever consider what the beast really wanted with his young Beauty? Find out in this collection of wittily reimagined fairy tales for a strictly adult audience.

In the title story, a haughty princess parades in front of her people and ends up showing off far more than her leadership skills. A modern-day Cinderella attends the palace ball in a pair of black patent-leather stiletto heels guaranteed to bring the foot-worshiping prince to his knees. The seven dwarves prove that what they lack in size they more than make up for in numbers; young Jackie learns more about pleasure from a beanstalk than she ever thought possible; and Goldie realizes that nothing is too hot when she sets about finding out which of three “bare” bachelors is neither too big nor too small, but just right.

Little Red Riding Hood, Goldilocks and the Three Bears, Sleeping Beauty–the erotic potential of these classic fairy tales and more is finally and fully realized in Hillary Rollins’s entertaining and titillating collection of bedtime stories for grown-ups. If you ever have trouble falling asleep, or if you want to get your partner in the mood to call it a day, try snuggling under the covers with these beautifully written and erotically self-assured tales from the annals of childhood. Better yet, read them aloud. There are few pleasures greater than sharing a good story with someone you love.

Publishers Weekly
Naughty takes on classic fables are old hat, but that doesn't stop Hillary Rollins from trying to plumb new depths of depravity in The Empress's New Lingerie, a bawdy collection of recycled fairy tales in which no fetish is left unexplored. It would be difficult to pick the worst offender, but in some of the raunchier vignettes one finds Snow White servicing all of the dwarves at once, near-bestiality in "Jackie and the Beanstalk," a Prince Charming with a thing for feet in "Cinderella" and plain old incest in "Hansel and Gretel." Timid readers should consider themselves warned. Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.

Paste jewels of fairytale erotica. Rollins's stories may not be strong on suavity or elegance, or up to the better erotica collections for young lonelies, or to the lavender exercises of A.N. Roquelaure (a.k.a. Anne Rice) in the let's-spank-Sleeping-Beauty mode—but without doubt they're passingly effective as an aid for young ladies who wish to sweeten the midnight sheets with a dark dream of swollen and refulgent cushions of flesh invaded by an "engorged thick knob." One standout does strive for stronger writing, the title piece, a satire on the bare-nippled lingerie and ornamental pubic silks of the Victoria's Secret line of boudoir-wear for sulky bottoms. The prude empress, scammed by dealers who sell her weaving that remains invisible to the vile, vulgar, and lustful, gets decked out in a fantastic red bustier of scandalous slenderness that gives her bosom a lush lift and lets her hips blossom while her long pink nipples stand out "exposed, erect and pulsating, just above the lace-trimmed edge of the half-moon cups." The delights of brother/sister wrestling are revealed in "Hansel and Gretel," told in a really cool way (Gretel: "See, ever since my father married my stepmother—who, of course, was the typical evil stepmother who hated the children of her husband's first wife and was completely jealous of any attention he gave us—"). The prince awakes Sleeping Beauty with a kiss on her "throbbing, raging clit" that has it "quivering with liquid incandescence." Then we have Snow White fellating the Seven Dwarfs, and Red Riding Hood engaging in secret acts under the blanket, her lonely "purple-dark slit and arching spine" in "a frenzy of flying fingers" before theredheaded curls that adorn her mound meet up with the wolf's "powerful, beastly tongue" and "ravenous mouth"—and so on to "Rapunzel," "The Three Little Pigs," "Goldie and the Three Bare Bachelors," and Cinderella in her stiletto glass slippers meeting her princely foot fetishist, who licks "every nook and cranny of that plump bit of flesh." A carton of rum-soaked bonbons. Don't say you weren't warned.
