Sleeping Beauty Stories Synopsis: The Claiming of Sleeping Beauty by Anne Rice (writing as A.N. Roquelaure) is the first book in the Sleeping Beauty Stories series. A spell is cast upon a young princess and everyone in her castle, and the spell can only be broken by a Prince’s kiss. The first novel of the series goes deep into the story and explores the sexual desires and unspoken implications within the tale. The Prince awakens Beauty, but not with a kiss, but with something a little less innocent. His reward for ending the spell is having Beauty become his sex slave.
