'These tasteful erotic stories will fuel the imagination and whet the appetite.'—Publishers Weekly

Rachel Kramer Bussel is a popular erotica editor and regularly writes for Salon, Jezebel, Bust, Cosmopolitan, The Huffington Post, The Daily Beast, and more. In a piece for SheKnows, she wrote about how "Classic Disney fairy tales are being rewritten as erotic literature."

Bussel writes, "For erotica especially, it's a breaking of the rules, it's larger than life, and it's instantly recognizable."

Kristina Wright, whose newest title A Princess Bound: Naughty Fairy Tales for Women (2014), a kinky BDSM-themed series of fairy tales published by Cleis Press, revealed, "In many cases, readers have only heard or read the sanitized versions of the original stories, so it's almost like coming full circle to tell the stories with the kind of edge they started with."

Face it, fairy tales have always been kinky—from beautiful queens tied up in knots to the wolf that makes Red Riding Hood blush. In the distinctive collection of racy romances, A Princess Bound, Kristina Wright seduces us with tales that are playful, supernaturally sensual and very, very naughty. Listen to Wright's bestselling fairy tale erotica Lustfully Ever After on Audible.

Join Kristina Wright in person at Fountain Bookstore in Richmond, VA on September 19th from 12:30-2:30pm.
