Date of Review: 06/14/07
The classic fairy tail of twelve dancing princesses is revamped into an erotic wonder by Nancy Madore.
A traveling wizardess stumbles upon a kingdom where twelve princesses required new shoes everyday. Despite the shoes being locked up under lock and key, everyday they were worn through. The wizardess requests to be taken to the King and announces that she knows how the shoes are being destroyed and better yet, she can solve the problem. The King agrees and gives her one week to travel to each of his daughter’s homes and remedy the problem. If she can do all that she claims, she will be given anything she desires.
Twelve dancing Princesses is a great erotic fairy tale that couples will enjoy. The book touches upon most issues that women face with sexuality. It shows the importance of communication in and out of the bedroom and the joy that can be found in sharing your most intimate desires with the person you love. Ms. Madore addresses many sexual fantasies and the pleasure that can be found in acting them out with a loved one.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was a pleasant foray into an erotic land that I’d love to linger in. Ms. Madore’s style of writing is lovely and engrossing. The pace is perfect. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to take their first step into the world of erotica and to veterans of the genre.

In this very sensual rendition of Grimms famed fairy tale, The Twelve Dancing Princesses, Nancy Madore goes to the root of what's wrong with these princesses, and in the process hits on similar problems of women throughout the world.
Madore begins her tale with the same story line as the princesses mysteriously wearing out their shoes while everyone else sleeps. But these princesses are married women not children. They are each suffering with their own unique problem adjusting to being in an adult relationship. I thought this was a very clever plot idea and Madore carried it through to the end seamlessly. Not only are the princesses problems very common issues all women can relate to, but the fun and clever manner in which she addresses them is exhilarating to read. I'm not saying I agreed with everything her "wizardess" recommends, but it doesn't matter because theres a treasure trove of ideas here for readers to choose between. Madore uses irony and fairplay to turn the princesses dull lives around. Take, for example Princess Tartia, who was my favorite out of all of them. Incidentally, the princesses' names give you a hint about their problem. Back to Princess Tartia, she has this little issue with bribing her husband with sex to get nice things from him. I'm not sure what's wrong with this but the wizardess helps Princess Tartia's husband teach his wife a lesson in what it feels like to be turned on past the breaking point. And that's another thing I appreciated about this book, that even when I wasn't sure I agreed with Madore's ideas, I still was able to enjoy the story. And the detail she went into in describing poor Princess Tartia's "punishment" was exciting to read. It got my heart rate up, that's for sure. And all of the stories were like that. I couldn't read the book fast enough, even though I wanted to take my time and enjoy it too. But I had to know what else this clever wizardess was going to do next. I wish all erotica was this fun and full of ideas.
