Erotic Romance, Fantasy Romance
Face it, fairy tales were always kind of kinky: from beautiful queens tied up in knots by wicked sorcerers to a wide variety of naughty and nice scenarios. Someone was always getting tied to a bed! In this new anthology of erotic romance fairy tales from the editor of the best-selling Fairy Tale Lust and Lustfully Ever After, the fairy tales are naughtier and have a BDSM twist. Retellings of the classics are joined with clever original tales, making for a darkly sensual and intensely romantic collection. Cathy Yardley, author of Crave: The Seduction of Snow White, introduces this compilation of enticing out-of-this-world erotic romance.

The Last Duchess - Kristina Wright
Faking her death to escape her abusive husband, a duchess seeks asylum with a shape-shifting wizard who makes all her dreams come true.
PRINCESS BOUND: NAUGHTY FAIRY TALES FOR WOMEN really didn't do it for me. I found several of the stories simply too bizarre or confusing for my taste in erotica, like Sealed, The Smith Under the Hill, and Out of the Waves. There were quite a few that I did enjoy, my favorites being Locks, The Witch's Servant, Mine Until Dawn, and Red and the Big Bad Wolf, but the majority just weren't my cup of tea.
Overall, the book did flow nicely, the stories all complementing each other with a definite, sometimes slightly uncomfortable, BDSM theme. From mermaids to seals, from witches to wizards, there's something for all fantasy lovers in PRINCESS BOUND: NAUGHTY FAIRY TALES FOR WOMEN.
