ah, anne rices beauty series.i was fourteen when i asked for this series for christmas. my family knew i loved to read and the only description i gave of the books was that they were just another anne rice goth trilogy.
luckily, the box set i unwrapped christmas morning was still sealed in shrinkwrap. I think they would have had a heart attack if they knew they had bought their little catholic school girl bookworm a complete box set of graphic S&M erotica. oh! it was the best christmas ever! I ran up to my room, locked the door, and didnt come out again until the next day.
