Sound like a fairy tale? It is...but OH what a twist. This trilogy was written by Anne Rice under the pen name, A.N. Roquelaure. This isn't a Disney story. It has all of the primary characters: Sleeping Beauty and Prince Charming, but he doesn't exactly awaken her with a kiss. From there on, you better make sure the kids are sleeping...The series is completely unlike her horror works. You won't find vampires and werewolves in this tale, but there's plenty of the naughty stuff!
This novel, written by Shirley Conran, is about a young woman who starts off working in the adult film industry, but then moves into mainstream Hollywood. Along the way, she starts a search to look for her birth-mother. She finally has the opportunity to confront the women that may be her mother so you can work on her plans to destroy them. Network television turned this into a two-part miniseries during the 1980s starring Phoebe Cates.
If you are a fan of Fifty Shades of Grey, then you will love this series. It's so much like 50 Shades, the all they did was switch up the stories and trade the tie on the front cover for a pair of cufflinks. That really isn't fair. They also change the names of the characters. In any case, it is in the same vein as 50 Shades and you can look at it as a continuation.
This is a series of short stories that all take place in the office. It is edited by Alison Tyler and is a bit more racier than 50 Shades of Grey. It's all about naughty fun in the workplace written into over twenty stories. The book features the writing of some of today's most famous erotic authors, including: some of the best erotic writers around today including Radclyffe, N.T. Morley, Saskia Walker, Xavier Acton and Savannah Stephens Smith.
One of the biggest themes of 50 Shades of Grey is it's obsession of sado-masochism. This book, written by Molly Weatherfield takes an explicit look at that world through the eyes of a Berkley PhD professor in Comparative Literature who moonlights as a bike messenger and sex addict. This book is well-written and the reader gets a real feel for what goes on in the mind of this smart-aleck and witty heroine. There is a sequel by the same author, entitled, Safe Word (see below).
