The Adam & Eve Trilogy – ebook
The Adam & Eve Trilogy by Paul Preston
In this sensual trilogy, three classic stories are each given an erotic adaptation.
In The Awakening of Laura, an adult version of Sleeping Beauty, an attractive unhappily married woman Laura, trapped by her conventional life and religious beliefs, is drawn to Stephen, a spiritually conflicted man. In an attempt to convert Stephen back to her faith and hold onto her own, Laura visits Stephen at his place of work, an underground theater called the Adam and Eve Club. Like Sleeping Beauty mesmerized by the needle, Laura follows a bright light into the theater and witnesses on the stage a scene of sexual bondage. Phillipe Williamson, the handsome entrepreneur and owner of the club, watches Laura’s response in the dark. Rather than being pricked and falling into a deep sleep, the dormant sexual desire of Laura is awakened by the virility of Williamson. Despite her marriage, Laura willingly gives herself over to Williamson as his submissive. When her husband, a minister, returns from a trip and Laura revitalizes their sexual relationship, Laura becomes torn between the three men. After her true love is revealed, Laura reawakens from her dangerous and all-consuming sexual obsession.
Bella Lisa and Her Beast, an erotic retelling of Beauty and the Beast, tells the story of Phillipe Williamson’s obsession and eventual seduction of a beautiful, much younger woman, Bella Lisa Mauricio. After Bella Lisa’s Father, an actor and speculator in the stock market, buys an oceanfront condo in the building Williamson owns, he loses all his money on a bad investment. Phillipe agrees to bail out her Father in exchange for a week alone with the woman he loves. Trapped against her will in his castle in the sky, Bella Lisa reluctantly agrees to become Williamson’s submissive, but for one week only. To her surprise, Bella Lisa grows sexually and emotionally attracted to Williamson after several highly charged sexual encounters. But when Bella Lisa breaks the rules of the house by entering the forbidden West Wing, the shocking and complex dark side of Williamson is revealed. Only through the depths of Bella Lisa’s love can the beast within Williamson be healed.
In The Phantom Phillipe, a reimagining of Phantom of the Opera, Phillipe and Bella Lisa both realize the nature of their relationship is changing. Afraid of the growing bond between them and confused about entering into a deeper emotional commitment to Phillipe, Bella Lisa meets Raoul Martinez, a young social worker, at her new job. Sexually drawn to one another, they act upon their mutual attraction and Raoul falls deeply in love with her. Bella Lisa admits to her affair and Williamson fears Bella Lisa is lost to him forever. After Williamson acts to win Bella Lisa back, a terrible and traumatic accident burns his skin beyond repair. Phillipe covers his face with a mask, stops taking his anti-psychotic medication, and closes himself away in his condo to consider suicide. A close friend and adult movie star, Carlotta, comforts Phillipe in his pain. After Phillipe rescues Christine, a prostitute who was abused as a child, Phillipe discovers that Joseph Buquet, the sadistic foster father who inflicted the physical and psychological scars on both Phillipe and Christine 32 years ago, is still alive. Phillipe hears the Voice of the Beast once more, summoning him to action. With the help of Carlotta, Williamson retreats into the subterranean bowels of his theater, The Adam and Eve Club, and plots his revenge against the man he holds personally responsible for the tragedy involving Bella Lisa Mauricio that shattered his life.
