Title: The Mistress (Original Sinners)
Author: Tiffany ReiszRelease Date: July 30, 2013
There’s punishment-and then there’s vengeance.
Nora Sutherlin is being held, bound and naked. Under different circumstances, she would enjoy the situation immensely, but her captor isn’t interested in play. Or pity.
As the reality of her impending peril unfolds, Nora becomes Scheherazade, buying each hour of her life with stories-sensual tales of Søren, Kingsley and Wesley, each of whom has tempted and tested and tortured her in his own way. This, Nora realizes, is her life: nothing so simple, so vanilla, as a mere love triangle for her. It’s a knot in a silken cord, a tangled mass of longings of the body and the heart and the mind. And it may unravel at any moment.
But in Nora’s world, no one is ever truly powerless-a cadre of her friends, protectors and lovers stands ready to do anything to save her, even when the only certainty seems to be sacrifice and heartbreak…
5+++ stars for The Mistress! This is an incredibly rich and completely satisfying conclusion to the Original Sinners series. All of the characters are brought together in The Mistress and their rich and complex stories are told in a very clever and gripping way. I can’t do justice to a book that is so masterfully written and so filled with erotic and sensual images that I literally could not put it down.
You must read The Original Sinners series first so that you will be familiar with the intricate and complex histories of the gorgeous and fierce characters created by Tiffany Reisz. In The Mistress, Nora is forced to recount stories of her past with Kingsley and Soren.
You’re my favorite monster, she said against his lips.
She felt pleasure with other men, ecstasy even sometimes…but only when Soren was inside her did she feel whole.
Soren and Kingsley spring into action to rescue Nora and both recall their memories of their relationship with Nora and with each other.
Soren could not live in a world without Nora. Kingsley could not live in a world without Soren.
Wesley also rushes to help rescue Nora, along with Zachary’s wife, Grace. Soren’s niece Laila also forms an important part of the author’s elaborate story of love, submission and erotica, a story that does not contain one false move or one unimportant character.
I don’t want to give away any spoilers but suffice it to say that Tiffany Reisz has created a brilliant cast of characters and a story that will challenge you, thrill you and leave you breathless with anticipation. I was on the edge of my seat while reading The Mistress, hoping that Soren and Nora’s unbreakable bond would get then through this latest crisis.
The fire of her teenage infatuation with Soren had burned itself out years ago. In its flames a love made of iron had been forged. It could survive any blow, any trial.
The ending of this story was incredibly emotionally satisfying, and perfect for each character. The Mistress is a brilliant ending to an absolutely amazing series.
Thanks to Harlequin and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
