Summary from the publisher:
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....
There’s not much I can reveal about THE MISTRESS without giving away its secrets and possibly ruining your own joy at reading it for the very first time. All I can say is that this book is the erotic romance equivalent of any epic fiction series finale you’ve ever read or experienced. Try to remember the best movie, book or TV series you ever loved that had the best ending ever and how wonderful that was. This is what THE MISTRESS is to the Original Sinners series. All the scores are settled, all the secrets are revealed, all the lost loves are reunited. I have rarely been so entertained by any multi-book series before, and I fear I won’t ever be again. THE MISTRESS is the best conclusion to the best erotic romance series and I am in debt to Tiffany Reisz for allowing me passage into the Original Sinners world.
Overall: 5 stars
