Beauty's Punishment

Unabridged / Go to Abridged Audiobook

Written By: Anne Rice

Narrated By: Samantha Prescott, Corbin Steele

Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers

Date: February 2013

Duration: 8 hours 3 minutes


An erotic novel of discipline, love, and surrender for the enjoyment of men and women.
This sequel to The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty, the first of Anne Rice's elegantly written volumes of erotica, continues her explicit, teasing exploration of the psychology of human desire. Now Beauty, having indulged in a secret and forbidden infatuation with the rebellious slave Prince Tristan, is sent away from the Satyricon-like world of the Castle. Sold at auction, she will soon experience the tantalizing punishments of "the village," as her education in love, cruelty, dominance, submission, and tenderness is turned over to the brazenly handsome Captain of the Guard. And once again Rice's fabulous tale of pleasure and pain dares to explore the most primal and well-hidden desires of the human heart.
Read by Genvieve Bevier and Winthrop Eliot.

    What a hot and intense read/listen. My first dab into erotica and I am super pleased with my choice. Shades of what?? If you haven't attempted the Beauty series then you have no idea. Thank you Anne!

    I thought this was better than the first book in the series. Leave it to Anne Rice to write such an interesting story.
