Summary from the publisher:

The final book in The Original Sinners Series - The Red Years.

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....

My Musings:

It’s fitting that THE MISTRESS would conclude the amazing one of a kind Original Sinners series with a story so wild and yet so perfectly plotted that it makes all the books that came before it look like mere foreplay. Everything in the Original Sinners world has led up to this moment in time. Nora Sutherlin, the queen of this world and everyone in it, is in the most dangerous scene of her life, and her chances at staying alive depend on her ability to keep a mentally deranged person entertained with stories about the people they both claim to love.

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

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
