The controversial story before the story continues in the critically acclaimed and award-winning series The Original Sinners.

For years, Kingsley Edge warned Eleanor the day would come when she, the mistress of a well-respected Catholic priest, would have to run and hide. She always imagined if that day came she'd be running away with Søren. But instead, she's running from him.

Knowing Søren and Kingsley will their use their influence to bring her back, Eleanor alone, penniless and scared takes refuge at the one place the men in her life cannot follow: the abbey where her mother has taken orders. Behind the cloistered gates of the convent, Eleanor hides from the man she loves and hates in equal measure

She cannot, however, hide from her true nature. When Eleanor befriends a young virginal nun, she faces a startling sexual awakening. But Eleanor can't stay forever, and the lure of her real life beckons beyond the locked gates. But to follow her fate means to leave Kyrie behind, a sacrifice Eleanor refuses to make

The lure of the forbidden. The temptation to sin. The price of passion has never been higher, and Eleanor will have to pay it if she ever wants to go home again.

Liezel’s Thoughts:

Throughout the series, I always wondered what would it take for Nora to safeword and we finally find that out in this 7th installment of The Original Sinners Series. Was the reason why Nora utters “Jabberwocky” expected? Absolutely not! This is what I love about this series.

The way Tiffany Reisz continues to surprise us with all the interesting details about this complex relationship. My surprise doesn’t end there either. We are taken on this inconceivable story where Soren is left all alone, Nora ends up in a convent and Kingsley finds the love of his life changer. ANNNND all of it ends with a wedding.

To say that there is a lot going on in this book is certainly an understatement. It all seems overwhelming if you think about it but the skill and precision of Tiffany Reisz’s seamless writing prevents you from feeling that way.  I couldn’t even tell you what part of it I loved the most.

It does send out one powerful message…”Amor vincit omnia” – where Love Conquers All. No matter what comes their way, as long as these three exists they can get through it together. Loved it!

The Verdict:

About Tiffany Reisz

Tiffany Reisz is the author of the highly acclaimed series The Original Sinners. Her first novel, The Siren, won the RT Book Reviews Editor’s Choice Award for Best Erotic Romance of 2012. Slightly shameless, Tiffany dropped out of a conservative Southern seminary in order to pursue a career as a writer. This move, while possibly putting her eternal salvation in peril, has worked out better than she anticipated. She lives in Lexington, Kentucky with her husband, author Andrew Shaffer, and two cats.
