In the beginning, there was him.
Gutsy, green-eyed Eleanor never met a rule she didn’t want to break. She’s sick of her mother’s zealotry and the confines of Catholic school, and declares she’ll never go to church again. But her first glimpse of beautiful, magnetic Father Søren Stearns and his lust-worthy Italian motorcycle is an epiphany. Suddenly, daily Mass seems like a reward, and her punishment is the ache she feels when they’re apart. He is intelligent and insightful and he seems to know her intimately at her very core. Eleanor is consumed—and even she knows that can’t be right.
But when one desperate mistake nearly costs Eleanor everything, it is Søren who steps in to save her. She vows to repay him with complete obedience…and a whole world opens before her as he reveals to her his deepest secrets.
Danger can be managed—pain, welcomed. Everything is about to begin.
Ellen’s 5-star Review:
“It begins with a whimper but ends in a bang.”
Tiffany Resisz has written what might be her best book so far! The story of how Eleanor and Soren first met is told in intimate detail as Nora tells the tale over one one night of passion with her lover. The Saint is told in flashback and although you might think you know the story, the funny, tragic and sexy details come to life at Tiffany Reisz’s gifted hands.
“When we met he said, ‘It’s a pleasure to finally meet you.’ We’d both been waiting for each other, like it was meant to be that we would find and love each other.”
How Soren finally brings the wild and disobedient Eleanor under control is fascinating. Her relationship with her parents is heartbreaking and the blooming of Soren, Nora and Kingsley’s inevitable and lifelong bond is a beautiful and very sexy thing to watch unfold. I could not put this book down and felt like I was spending time with some old (if not very dangerous) friends. I loved the switching back and forth between past and present as an adult Nora tells the story to her current lover (no spoilers as to his identity!) The Saint is another perfectly-written, highly erotic novel from Ms. Reisz, with a healthy dose of sarcasm and humor and even some religious eduction and philosophy thrown in. Don’t miss this one!
