9780609607053: The Empress's New Lingerie: Bedtime Stories for Grownups

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.

About the Author:

Hillary Rollins is the author of The Erotic Way and has contributed to Cosmopolitan and several book anthologies. She lives in Hollywood, California.

From Library Journal:

Behind every wholesome fairy tale there is a steamy porno story line. "Cinderella" is a lightly veiled tale of one man's shoe fetish; as for Sleeping Beauty, well, she really played whore to the Seven Dwarves and liked it, baby. These are some of the more mentionable twists that freelance writer Rollins has put on the classic yarns disseminated by the Brothers Grimm, who cut out their sexual content. In addition to "Cinderella" and "Sleeping Beauty," "Goldilocks and the Three Bears," "Jack and the Beanstalk," "Little Red Riding Hood," and "Hansel and Gretel" all get eroticized, some to better effect than others. It's all in the spirit of consenting adult fun. Readers needing to spice up their love lives could use this as an accessory, though sometimes Rollins's metaphor and alliteration are ridiculously unsexy. For larger erotica and literature collections. Heather McCormack, "Library Journal"
