Overview

No safe word can protect the heart

Infamous erotica author and accomplished dominatrix Nora Sutherlin is doing something utterly out of character: hiding. While her longtime lover, Søren—whose fetishes, if exposed, would be his ruin—is under scrutiny pending a major promotion, Nora's lying low and away from temptation in the lap of luxury.

Her host, the wealthy and uninhibited Griffin Fiske, is thrilled to have Nora stay at his country estate, especially once he meets her traveling companion. Young, inexperienced and angelically beautiful, Michael has become Nora's protégé, and this summer with Griffin is going to be his training, where the hazing never ends.

But while her flesh is willing, Nora's mind is wandering. To thoughts of Søren, her master, under investigation by a journalist with an ax to grind. And to another man from Nora's past, whose hold on her is less bruising, but whose secrets are no less painful. It's a summer that will prove the old adage: love hurts.

Read an Excerpt

"Fudge."

Mostly upside down with her head hanging off the bed, Nora saw the ominous slant of sunlight sliding through the window and across the floor. S0ren pushed into her again, and she flinched with pleasure.

"Eleanor, are you thinking about food at a time like this?" Søren thrust hard once more and came with a controlled shudder.

Laughing from her recent orgasm and the absurdity of having this conversation in her current position, Nora finished her thought. "You're the one who told me I wasn't allowed to swear on Sundays anymore. So, fudge, I'm going to be late for Mass, sir."

Søren dipped his head and kissed her neck.

"I have it on good authority that your priest would be quite displeased if you were late," he whispered into her ear.

"Then my priest needs to untie my leg from his bedpost."

Søren raised up and glared down at her; she innocently batted her eyelashes at him.

"Beg," he ordered, and Nora started to growl. Arrogant son of a bitch.

He never said anything about not swearing in her mind. Just that she could never curse out loud. Søren put a finger over her lips. "No growling. Begging."

Clenching and unclenching her jaw, Nora took a deep breath.

"Please, sir, will you let me go so I can drive my as—bottom home, take a shower, eat breakfast for once this week, throw on some clothes and drive back to church so I can sit in my pew looking prim and proper all the while imagining you naked as you're giving some homily on sin and how, shockingly, God's against it? Pretty please with you on top?"

Søren slapped the back of her thigh hard enough she yelped. But still he reached up and unknotted the black silk rope from her ankle. With obvious reluctance, he withdrew from her and rolled onto his side.

Now free, Nora started to crawl out of his bed.

Søren propped his head on his hand and stretched languidly across his white sheets. She wasn't going to look at him. If she looked at Søren, she'd crawl right back to him.

"In a hurry, little one?"

"To leave you? No. To not be late for Mass and earn yet another beating this week? Yes." Søren caressed the back of her calf and Nora turned back to stare daggers at him. "Are you trying to make me late…sir?"

Sighing, Søren pulled his hand away from her. It wasn't fair. The rectory stood all of two minutes' walk from the church; being male and not having to worry about what outfit to wear, Søren could get ready in ten minutes.

"A vicious accusation, Eleanor. Of course I would never try to make you late. You are a role model for the young people in the church after all."

Snorting a laugh, Nora started picking up her clothes. She pulled her shirt off the top of the bedpost she been tied to last night while Søren had flogged her senseless. Her skirt lay in a crumpled heap on the floor where it had landed after Søren unzipped it and let it fall before bending her over his bed and strapping her ankles to a spreader bar. Somewhere under his bed she found her bra, and her underwear was at home in a drawer. She rarely bothered with underwear around Søren—counterproductive really.

"A role model? Nora Sutherlin—erotica writer, exdominatrix. It's a pleasure to meet you." She held out her hand to shake. Søren only looked at it and raised his eyebrow at her.

"You're a role model to Michael. He adores you."

"But Michael's one of us, sir." She smiled at the memory of Søren's anniversary gift to her last year: the virginity of possibly the prettiest teenage boy in the known world. Pretty, kinky and unfortunately deeply troubled. "Of course he's got a soft spot for me. Or a wet spot. Anyway, none of those vanilla twerps at church need to look up to me."

Nora shoved her feet into her shoes as Søren got out of bed. Her heart pounded at the sight of all six feet four inches of his perfectly sculpted, unashamedly naked body coming toward her. No one watching him now would ever believe Søren was forty-seven years old. And no one seeing them last night and this morning as he beat her and fucked her repeatedly in a variety of delightfully degrading positions would have dreamed he was one of the most respected Catholic priests in all of New England.

"You give them hope that one can be an adult Catholic without being conventional or condescending."

"You're trying to say the kids think I'm cool, aren't you?"

"My sentiments exactly."

She turned her face up to him for a quick goodbye kiss. Instead he bent down and kissed her long and slow…deeply, possessively. No one had ever kissed her the way Søren did, as though he was inside her body even when he was only inside her mouth. After nearly five minutes of pure passionate kissing, Søren finally pulled back.

"Eleanor, you really should stop dawdling." His steel-gray eyes glinted wickedly.

Nora glared at him. "You bas—" Nora began, and Søren glared at her. This "no swearing on Sundays" thing was going to kill her. But she would do it come heck or high water. "Bastion of evil intentions. You just stole five minutes by kissing me. God Almighty."

"Young lady, if you don't stop using the Lord's name in vain, I'm going to reintroduce caning into our relationship. Are you really complaining that I kissed you?"

"Yes. You're cheating. You want me to be late so you'll have an excuse to beat me."

"As if I need an excuse." Søren smiled at her, and she was torn between the twin impulses to either slap him or kiss him again.

"I'm gone. Goodbye. I love you, I hate you, I love you. I'll see you at eleven, and I'll try very hard to listen to your homily this morning instead of having flashbacks from last night. But no promises."

Nora headed for the door.

"Eleanor…forgetting something?"

Nora spun on her heel and came back to him. Reaching up she wrapped her arms around his neck. "Am I, sir?"

He bent to kiss her again.

"The bed."

Nora rolled her eyes. She pulled away from him and quickly made his bed, fluffing his pillows with near-hurricane force. "There, sir. Happy now?"

Søren pulled her to him and ran his fingers over her cheek. "You're here. Of course I am."

Nora sighed at his words and his touch. In the years she and Søren had spent together—those ten beautiful years in his collar before the incident, until she'd left him—they usually spent two or three nights a week together at the most. Then, after five years apart, she'd come back to him, and since returning, she spent nearly every free moment she could with him—at the rectory, at their friend Kingsley's Manhattan town house or at The 8th Circle, the infamous underground S&M club where Søren was practically worshipped. She hated being at home alone these days. The house seemed too big, too empty, too quiet.

Søren's hands left her face and reached around her neck. She heard a click, felt something give way, and Søren removed her white leather collar. As always, the moment her collar came off her neck, she felt something tighten around her heart. Søren opened the rosewood box that sat on his bedside table, took out his Roman collar and replaced it with Nora's collar.

"Jeg elsker dig. Du er mit hjerte."

I love you. You are my heart.

With a dramatic moan Nora collapsed against his chest. "Do you know how much it turns me on when you speak Danish?"

"Yes. Now go. You're running late, and I believe you recall what happened the last time you were late for Mass."

"I do. But I sort of enjoyed it, so that's not much of a threat."

"I could threaten you with a week of celibacy, but as I'm not going to be late, I see no reason to punish myself. Eleanor, you could always move closer. Have you considered that?"

She had considered that. For about five seconds before deciding she'd rather cut off her arm than sell her house.

"I love my house. I want to keep it."

"Is it the house or the memories you love and want to keep?"

Nora stared at the floor.

"Please don't make me move."

Søren had asked her over a year ago to move closer to him and the church. She'd said no then and she was saying no now. She knew he could order her to move closer, and she would if he made her. But so far it hadn't come to that. Søren nodded and Nora pulled away from him.

"We're scening after church again, right?" Nora asked from the bedroom doorway. Sunday afternoons belonged to them. Søren's parishioners always left him alone on Sunday afternoons. They assumed he was busy praying. Not quite.

"Barring divine intervention."

"Divine intervention, Father Stearns?" Nora tossed her hair with arrogant playfulness. "God oughta know better by now."

Throwing a smile over her shoulder, Nora gave Søren one last long look. He had, without a doubt, the most handsome face of any man she'd ever known. The most handsome face, the keenest mind, the wickedest libido, the sexiest body and the most devoted heart.. For the five years she'd lived apart from him, four had been agony. And now they'd been back together for over a year and everything was perfect.

Well, almost perfect.

As usual, Michael woke up long before his alarm. He lay in bed with his hand down his boxer shorts and contemplated finding a tie to make this process more enjoyable. But he'd promised Father S that he wouldn't hurt himself anymore. Father S had no objections to erotic asphyxiation but he forbade Michael from doing it alone. "We almost lost you once, Michael. I'd rather not repeat that experience," Father S had told him, and Michael knew he would never forgive himself if he put his priest—the man who'd saved his life—through that nightmare again.

So instead, Michael merely closed his eyes and conjured the memory of Nora Sutherlin tying him down, guiding him inside her and clenching so tightly around him he'd flinched. That one sensory memory worked as usual, and Michael came hard on his hand.

Forgoing a tissue, Michael got up and headed straight to the shower. He spent a long time in the shower, longer than most guys his age probably did. Of course, most guys his age didn't have hair that fell to their shoulders and a predilection for self-abuse in the literal sense. Scalding water wasn't quite as much fun as scalding candle wax, but it was the best he had.

After his shower Michael toweled off and dressed. He dried his long hair and pulled it into a low ponytail. He ironed his white button-down and his black cargo pants and even put on a tie. But not for erotic reasons…unless he counted trying to impress Nora Sutherlin as an erotic reason.

As usual, before leaving his bedroom, Michael rolled up his sleeves and rubbed liquid vitamin E onto the white scars on both of his wrists. The vitamin E supposedly helped scars heal and fade, but so far the effect had been minimal. He strapped his wide leather watchband on his right wrist and pulled a black wristband on his left before heading to his mom's room.

Michael tapped on her bedroom door.

"Go without me," she called out, as he knew she would. Still, he always had to ask. "Leave the car. I have to run errands this morning."

Leave the car…great. Good thing Sacred Heart was only a few blocks away.

He pushed on his sunglasses, grabbed his skateboard and his backpack on the way out the door, and hit the street. Skating straight up to the front steps of Sacred Heart, he flipped his board up and tucked it under his arm. Before entering the sanctuary, he went to the church secretary's office, dug something out of his backpack and sent a quick fax.

Michael headed to the sanctuary and saw Nora hadn't arrived yet. He sat in the tenth pew from the back, two rows behind Nora's usual spot. Her little shadow, seven-year-old Owen Perry, already waited for his Miss Ellie to show up. Owen adored Nora—Miss Ellie—and did nothing to hide that fact. He sat next to her during Mass and sometimes even curled up on her lap. Once Michael walked past them and saw Owen lying half-asleep on her knee as Nora mindlessly ran her fingers over his tiny forehead. Both of them had wavy black hair. Anyone seeing them for the first time would think Nora was the kid's mom.

It bugged him seeing Owen cuddling up to Nora. He envied that little kid for so fearlessly showering Nora with affection and attention. Michael would kiss her feet if she'd let him. But then again, he also envied Nora. She at least had someone who wasn't afraid to touch her in public. Michael couldn't even remember the last time anyone had touched him. Even his own mother had stopped hugging him after his father moved out.

Nora didn't just have people who would touch her in public. She had Father S, who touched her in private. Michael secretly worried someone would find out about Father S and Nora. Everybody knew Nora wrote erotica, and the church secretly loved having a mini-celebrity in their midst. And everybody at church worshipped Father S. But Nora and Father S had fallen in love when she was only fifteen. If their past, and even worse, their present, came out… Michael didn't even want to think how bad it would get.

Checking his watch, Michael saw he had just enough time to run for a drink of water. He stood up quickly and headed to the door. As he exited the sanctuary Nora breezed in through the front doors wearing a tight white skirt and a tailored black blouse. Her long hair was swept up in a loose knot and she wore a little smile at the corner of her full pale red lips. He could only imagine what Father S had been doing to her that morning to put that grin on her face—could imagine and often did imagine.

Nora came toward him and Michael froze. They never talked to each other—not in words anyway, not since that one night together. But as usual he gave her a little wave. Instead of waving back, Nora reached out and took his hand in hers for the whisper of a second. She squeezed his fingers and let him go, walking off as if nothing at all had passed between them.

Michael gazed down at his hand. She'd touched him.

When Michael looked up, one of the married men in the congregation who had a bad habit of flirting with Nora sat staring at him. Staring at him with a look Michael recognized as envy. Michael stood a little straighter and walked back to his pew. He paused a moment before changing his mind, taking two steps forward and dropping down right next to Nora. She didn't look at him, just chatted with Owen about a drawing he'd done for her. But Nora snuck her hand out again and pinched Michael hard enough on the thigh he knew he'd have a bruise tomorrow.

Michael smiled. God, he loved Sundays.

    For those who've read The Siren,I'm sure you're dying to know wh

    For those who've read The Siren,I'm sure you're dying to know what happened after that sad ending.The Angel resumes over a year later, but thankfully, Reisz slowly and seamlessly fills in the blanks throughout the story. Nora and Soren are together and happy. But an investigation into Soren's past sends Nora and her new student Michael out of sight, to stay with Griffin. Though she loves Soren and misses him desperately, the time away from him forces, Nora to rehash her past, and confront unresolved and painful feelings for the love Nora turned away. All the while, Michael, whose desperation pushed him to drastic actions, is finding himself. An eager student, a willing lover, an Angel, this story is as much Michael's as it is Nora's.

    What I loved the most about The Angel was the fact that author Tiffany Reisz surprised me on almost every page. I felt that I knew Nora so well, and Wes, to a large extent, and that I had a true grasp on them. Even though I didn't get to know Soren, Kingsley, and Griffin particularly well in The Siren, I dismissed them, particularly Griffin, as easily-pegged characters. Ohhhh, how wrong I was, and I am happy to admit it. What Reisz has mastered is the art of creating fully dimensional characters. Her characters are good bad and always so good at being so bad. Take Soren, for example. He's a Priest. A very good Priest who has done remarkable things for the Church. And yet, he has broken vows. He's a Sadist. He has been in love with Nora since she was fifteen. He has given the very best parts of himself to the Church, and yet he is the head of the Underground. He's Complex. I also love that characters I originally thought of as marginal, are not marginal in the slightest. Griffin is a character I dismissed as a fun, "fill in" character in The Siren. But in The Angel, Griffin is magnificent, becoming my favorite in the story. And Michael. Who could forget poor Michael? I thought his appearance in book one was a device used to wake Nora up. I never imagined he would play a central role in The Angel. I'm left feeling blown away by these characters.

    The Angel is one of the most erotic books I've ever read. Sometimes it was playful, sometimes it was scary, but it was always seductive. Reisz has a remarkable way of writing sexual scenes. Her seduction lies more in the implication than in relying on an actual "description" of the act. The scene works as a whole; the type sheets on the bed, the color of candles lit, the color of lingerie worn, the whisper of a breath on the back of a neck, the placement of a hand, a sigh... It all works beautifully together to create an intensely erotic atmosphere that will leave you feeling heady and completely satisfied.

    The Angel has helped secure The Original Sinners series on my "Must-Read-or-I-Will-Die" list. The clever, sharp, beautifully seductive writing; the characters that I love, like, and am terrified of; the story of a group of Sinners, these complicated, worthwhile characters, haveall combined in this perfect storm to create what I consider a perfect book. The ending left me crying.Sad tears? Happy tears? I'll never tell, but I will tell you that I will cut someone to read book three, The Prince.

    My Review:


    I adored the first book in this series, but it was a flawed love. The first book was so incredibly good, but it was painful to read and it definitely left me with a reading hangover. Immediately after finishing book #1, I declared that I probably wouldn't read any more from this series. It was too intense. Too painful. Too doubtful that these characters could overcome everything. But when book #2 came out, alas temptation proved too great and I immediately snatched it up, hoping for more. More movement towards a Happily Ever After for these horribly emotionally scarred characters that I have come to love.


    Book #2 delivered and it delivered brilliantly. I could not put this book down and read it till 3:00 in the morning to finish it. But it did something that book #1 didn't...it left me a feeling of hope and now I can't wait for Book #3 (which will probably shatter that hope again...LOL!)


    So where do I go with this review to explain how much you too NEED to be drawn into this incredibly complex, deviant world that Tiffany Reisz has created? The first thing that you need to know is that these books are unlike anything you've ever read before. There absolutely are aspects to them which will make you INCREDIBLY uncomfortable. But honestly, that's one of those things that makes the writing in these books so brilliant...You fall in love with these characters...all of them, even though sometimes the details of their lives are not so pretty...both past and present.


    OMG, I even loved Soren after this book and I NEVER would have guessed that was possible after book #1. He was the only character that I truly disliked after the first book and a lot of the reason that I was left with such an unsettled feeling after that book. Nora is devoted to him and that will never change...although I will admit, I want it to. Honestly, I want her to end up with the other character in the book. Regardless, I adore Nora's character. She's witty, smart and so in-your-face honest...about absolutely everything. She's completely irreverent, but totally loyal to those she loves. She is self-sacrificing and my heart just aches for her and what she really wants...even though she thinks it's better for those she loves for her not to get it. Hope...it's there and why I NEED book #3.


    The Happily Ever After that DID happen in this book was brilliant. OMG, I LOVED the love story in this one. It developed so perfectly with just enough sweetness and devotion and true love. *sigh* It was just brilliant. Again, I LOVE Tiffany's writing style. These books are just so damn smart!!


    I know that this review is vague, but I don't want to give away anything in these books. The story lines weave in and out and all around and you never know what's going to happen around the next corner. I don't want to spoil any of that for you. Just know, if you love erotica, these are absolutely some of the BEST erotica books I've ever read. You NEED them in your to-be-read pile!!!


    (BTW, the scene depicted in that gorgeous cover...absolutely the SWEETEST scene in the entire book. *sigh* LOVE!!! You'll understand once you read it.)


    I received a complementary copy of this book in return for an honest review.

    This book was even better than the first in the series. I had the pleasure of reading it in it's prepub state, and cannot wait for The Prince to arrive so I can see where else Nora takes us. Tiffany Reisz writes a great novel with a lot of depth in her characters and plot. This is not simply a fluffy scintilating series a'la 50 shades, but a much deeper look at human nature and human desires. I simply could not put it down. If you enjoyed the Siren, you will most certainly be in rapture with The Angel.

    Delightfully sinful!

    There are just too many delightful developments regarding Griffen, Michael, Kingsley, Nora, and... Soren?! His past is much more scarred than a child should endure. Michael is a beacon of hope. Nora is sexy, audacious, insightful, and fierce in her loyalties. Kingsley is a bigger player in this cadre than heseems. And Soren? Hawt damn!

    Second in a powerful, gripping series

    This book has byfar been the most sweet in the series, but it still packs the serious erotic punch I've come to expect from Reisz. Michael is adorable and Griffin is hard not to love. We learn much more about Soren and his past which is the darker, more difficult part of the book, but it made me love him that much more.

    Great Read!!!

    I loved this book. I so like Tiffanys writing style. I'm so connected with these characters. My Nook will be lucky to make it through this series! Lol!! I laughed,cried,and screamed in frustration.

    Wow. Tiffany Reisz continues to impress me with her ability to write original and emotional character driven stories. She continues to push the envelope while still remaining accessible to all readers (as long as you’re not afraid to try something new). When I read a Tiffany Reisz novel, I go through the gamut of emotions – joy, lust, rage, sadness, frustration, fear – and that’s just in the first few pages. 




    The Angel takes us deeper into Nora’s world and explores old relationships as well as new ones. It picks up about a year after the events of The Siren, and Nora finds that she must leave town when a journalist comes poking around Søren’s congregation. Nora holes up at the estate of Griffin Fiske, a friend and fellow Dom. She takes with her Michael Dimir, the damaged young man that we met in The Angel. Michael is Nora’s protégé for the summer and Nora plans to teach him everything she knows. 




    Before reading The Angel, I was on the fence about Søren. I wasn’t his biggest fan after the last book but the Angel sheds a lot of light on his past and now I can see why Nora fell in love with him. He is an extremely compelling character with a very dark past. There’s so much that makes up Søren and I think we’ve only scratched the surface. 




    The other half of the book focuses on Michael, aka The Angel. Michael is struggling to figure out who he is and to accept himself. I loved that Nora and Griffin encouraged him to be himself. Under their tutelage, he sheds his painfully shy exterior and lets out the confident, funny, and thoughtful young man inside. Ultimately I think Michael’s story is one of healing and acceptance. One summer with Nora isn’t going to cure all his problems, but he is getting there. 




    I have to say that I fell in love with both Michael and Griffin. They were the cutest couple and it was fun watching them both try not to fall in love and failing miserably. I know that the age difference (Michael is 17) might bother some people, but I did not feel that at all. Age is never an issue as they are well matched in personality and maturity. 




    With each book, I fall deeper into the rabbit hole that Tiffany Reisz has created. Well written, sensual, emotional, and unapologetic, The Original Sinners series is one that you won’t soon forget. I cannot wait to read The Prince, which will give us more insight into Søren and Kingsley’s relationship. I have a feeling it’s going to be the best one yet!




    *I received this book free of charge from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This, in no way, affected my opinion or review of this book.

    Soul Changing

    If you have read The Siren, you must read this book, especially if you had a difficult time with it. Have you ever tasted something and you had to take a second bite to see if you really liked it? That's how it was with The Original Sinners Series for me. I had to continue on with book two in order to really appreciate the taste.

    This book changed me as a person. I would give it 5 million stars if I could. I loved it that much. I'm so glad that I made myself continue on with the series.

    Reisz writes characters that you may not always love but they make you think about things in a different way and they do not leave you alone when you put the book down. I'm still thinking about what Soren, Nora, Kingsley, Griffin or Michael will do next. I'm wondering who else Reisz will introduce into the mix. What will happen with Wesley? Oh my God, Wesley?!

    Don't take my word for it, please, please read it for yourself.

    I felt a deep connection to the characters in this book., their pain, loss and need to be loved. I wonder if the real world of BDSM is as heartfelt and yearning for love or just not so glorified.
    After all this is a book.
    I loved this book and look forward to the mistress since i have read the books out of order!

    Love Heals

    Ms. Reisz' writing is beautiful and her message is poignantly drawn in words. Apart from the Priest that isn't celibate, the characters are all worthy of our empathy (including the Priest). While the love heals message is cloaked in erotica, all these books are worth adding to your bookshelf. Even though they're difficult to read at times, the emotions that are painted are beautiful. I highly recommend.
