If you do not know who Tiffany Reisz is, stop reading this right now and go to her website, click on the Bedtime Story Blog link, and read some of her work. I’ll wait.
Got your breath back and changed your underwear? Good. Now that you have a better idea of who this little Scotch pepper of a writer is, you’ll understand why her Original Sinners series is to 50 Shades of Grey what truffles are to tree fungus. Published by Harlequin MIRA, the first Original Sinners book, The Siren, introduces us to Nora Sutherlin, a dominatrix/writer/force of nature who wants to make it out of the “smut” genre and go big with her latest novel. In order to do that, however, she needs to get hard-assed British editor Zach Easton to agree to edit her novel — and he doesn’t like erotica or erotica writers.
As if that wasn’t difficult enough, Nora also has a gorgeous, virginal live-in intern named Wesley who complicates her life with his innate decency and quiet love for her (but he won’t go to bed with her). Oh, and her lover/former dom/scariest man in NYC Søren wants her back, but can’t engage in a public relationship with her for the best of reasons. With three stunning, damaged, amazing men like this in her life, what the hell’s a writer to do?
To find out, just go to Amazon or B&N and get The Siren and The Angel, the second book in the series (there are three more coming, according to Tiffany). I swear on Anaïs Nin’s grave, you won’t regret it.
