Princess Bound: Naughty Fairy Tales for Women

Edited by Kristina Wright. Cleis (, $15.95 trade paper (232p) ISBN 978-1-62778-035-3

Wright’s latest collection will titillate and captive readers with 17 tales of princesses finding erotic pleasure in dominance and submission. Fans of witch tales will delight in “Mine Until Dawn” by Valerie Alexander, wherein an after-sex after-midnight photo plays the role of the glass slipper. A woman’s fantasies of humiliation and punishment turn into reality in Ariel Graham’s “The Seven Ravens.” A common theme of trust, emotional connection, and tension heightens the reading pleasure. The sameness of the stories may not appeal to experienced readers who want more diverse plots, but for newcomers to BDSM, these tasteful erotic stories will fuel the imagination and whet the appetite.
