Tiffany Reisz--The Mistress (The Original Sinners #4)

Adult Romance-erotica

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....

This is the 4th book in the Red Years Quartet, and it's all about the journey. The synopsis holds true to the fact that the journey is told in stories by Nora to buy her more time. Some of the stories we already know, but it doesn't make them any less important and special. We come to understand, in a whole new way, her love for Soren, and how Kingsley and Wesley play a part in her life. It's beautiful, emotional, and hilarious at times. Nora's sarcastic sense of humor always shines through at the right moment. We also get 2 new surprise players in this one (i won't spoil the surprise). I wasn't at first sure how they fit in to it all, but TR pulls all the unraveled ends back together for us. A beautiful journey, one I am very happy with. The ending was perfect....

If you have not become an obsessed fan of Tiffany Reisz yet, start at the beginning with The Siren. It's a dark journey, (you have to be open minded and willing to go on the adventure), but one I loved every step of the way. This series, on the surface, could just be another erotica romance. But it is sooo much more than that. The characters are so well developed, you can't help but become addicted to them. It's emotional, painful, and beautiful all at the same time. I could go on and on about this series, but I don't want to spoil your discovery of them. Enjoy!
