The Saint by Tiffany Reisz Blog Tour

In the beginning, there was him.

Gutsy, green-eyed Eleanor never met a rule she didn't want to break. She's sick of her mother's zealotry and the confines of Catholic school, and declares she'll never go to church again. But her first glimpse of beautiful, magnetic Father Søren Stearns and his lust-worthy Italian motorcycle is an epiphany. Suddenly, daily Mass seems like a reward, and her punishment is the ache she feels when they're apart. He is intelligent and insightful and he seems to know her intimately at her very core. Eleanor is consumed—and even she knows that can't be right.

But when one desperate mistake nearly costs Eleanor everything, it is Søren who steps in to save her. She vows to repay him with complete obedience…and a whole world opens before her as he reveals to her his deepest secrets.

Danger can be managed—pain, welcomed. Everything is about to begin.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Tiffany Reisz is an amazing author – EVERYTHING about this book is fantastic!!!
The setting, the dialogue, the interactions, the romance, the BDSM – EVERYTHING!

The book begins at the present time, in a different country. As the reader, you’re thrown “off balance,” which just made me want to read faster to find out WTF is going on.
I don’t want to give ANYTHING away, nor do I want to summarize the story & ruin it for you.
I will say that although the book is set in the present time, we FINALLY learn about Nora/Eleanor age 15 – 20!!!

We find out when/how she meets Soren (he was 29)! We see how they were both entranced at first sight and how they grew together. She was a wild teenager whom needed spiritual guidance and was at the “right place at the right time.” He was the epitome of the “Father” figure who needed someone to believe in him. They both looked to each other to fill important roles in their lives.

Many questions are answered, more are raised…and we’re left waiting for the next book ;)



Tiffany Reisz spins a web of absolute PERFECTION!

"So be it"

Back to the beginning. The past and present interweaving a tale of destiny, love, and sacrifice! I don't have enough words to tell you how incredible this series is. I'm begging you to read The Red Years first, Nora- the famous dominatrix. The Saint is the first book in the White Years, Nora- the Submissive. There're so many shocking twists and turns within the The Red Years, I want you to go through all the emotional ups and down, I want you to feel it. Don't make me get my crop. Read The Siren first, then continue on. I only say this because I want you to fully comprehend the characters, their loyalty, their sacrifices, their love. It's like nothing you've ever read.

I'm so connected to these fictional characters, I get goosebumps, I cry, I yell, I have panic attacks.

Nora is one of a kind, smart, witty, and dangerously intoxicating.

Soren is the one, the only one that can bring me to my knees. I have never met anyone like him. My favorite PRIEST!

"You're not a normal priest, are you?"
He gave her a smile that hit her like a slap to the face and a kiss on the mouth all at once.
"My God, I hope not."

Kingsley does something wicked to me. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE HIM! Unconditionally, I am in love.

"Why do you have your clothes on?"
"Was I supposed to take them off?"
"I've never heard a stupider question in my life."

I can't have one without the other. IT wouldn't be right.

I won't go into great detail and I definitely won't spoil.  Nora is hiding out in a cabin spilling her past to Nico. I had a sinking feeling in my stomach, I almost didn't want to finish. WTF happened since The Mistress?!?! Here's the deal, you never know what will happen, don't try to guess, it will get you nowhere. Just enjoy the ride!!!!!!


Once again I feel the need to kneel in front of Ms. Reisz - she writes the most amazing prose that it is difficult to tear oneself away, and yet at the same time the knowledge that every page is one nearer the end is a sadness. I am in awe of how the story can be told, retold, grow, make everything seem right, it all appear finished, a new chapter begin ... Stunning

Hopefully you get the idea that this is a MUST read and are dashing off to order your copy now. Just make sure you've cleared your diary, or don't need to sleep much tonight, because I doubt you can stop reading it once you start!

Tiffany Reisz lives with her boyfriend (a reformed book reviewer) and two cats (one good, one evil). She graduated with a B.A. in English from Centre College in Danville, Kentucky and is making both her parents and her professors proud by writing BDSM erotica under her real name. She has five piercings, one tattoo, and has been arrested twice.

When not under arrest, Tiffany enjoys Latin Dance, Latin Men, and Latin Verbs. She dropped out of a conservative southern seminary in order to pursue her dream of becoming a smut peddler. Johnny Depp’s aunt was her fourth grade teacher. Her first full-length novel THE SIREN was inspired by a desire to tie up actor Jason Isaacs (on paper). She hopes someday life will imitate art (in bed).

If she couldn’t write, she would die.

Too Much by Lea Griffith Blog Tour

In Lea Griffith’s Loveswept debut, a novel that’s perfect for erotic romance readers, two lovers who have shared exquisite pain and unforgettable bliss find solace back in each other’s arms.

Jeremiah Copeland and Daly Edwards have a history. Even though he grew up a criminal struggling to care for two younger siblings, and she’s the pampered daughter of a power-hungry senator, they formed a bond that nothing could break. Only a lack of trust ripped them apart.

Seven years later, Daly has reason to believe that Jeremiah’s brother is in trouble. She reaches out to Jeremiah the only way she knows how: at his BDSM club, The Underground. But one look ignites a heat she thought had cooled forever. As Jeremiah takes control of her body once again, Daly quickly loses control of her carefully rebuilt world. Too much has never been enough between them, and as danger swirls in the shadows, Jeremiah forces Daly to recognize what has never changed: She still loves him. His command is that she return her heart—and he will make her obey.

Too Much is an erotic romance intended for mature audiences.

Jeremiah and Daly are meant to be together, they want to be together, but trust issues tore them apart. It has been years since they were torn apart, can they work through their trust issues and get back together and stay together? You MUST read this book to find out. The chemistry between the two main characters is off the charts and so is the sex!

Characters: I instantly fell in love with Jeremiah and Daly. I could just feel the love oozing out of the book that Jeremiah had for Daly. I also fell in love with Toby, Daly’s brother and I really hope there is another book so we can hear his story.
Sex: LOTS and it is sooo hot and steamy and good!
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: I hope so, I want to hear about Toby next!
Genre: BDSM/Erotica/ Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes

Rachael – ☆☆☆☆
Okay, starting this I thought it was going to be a BDSM book, however, I was surprised that there really wasn't much BDSM activity at all. It was still a good read. I loved stubborn Jeremiah and Daly, yes, they were both stubborn as hell, but I loved it. I loved the way they grooved together and the way they felt so natural together.

I think the only thing I would've liked was more BDSM since he owned a BDSM club and that was supposedly a big part of their relationship the first time they were together. There was also a few times where the flow hiccupped for me and the characters did the same thing a couple times (like walking into a room) but overall it was a great, sexy read.

Mary Jo – ☆☆☆☆☆
Daly Edwards left Jeremiah Copeland because of a lack of trust. He didn't trust her to tell her the whole truth and that lack of trust broke Daly's heart.

Three years later, Daly finds herself thrust back into Jeremiah's world, thanks to his cowardly brother. Just seeing him again brings back all of the feelings she has for him.

Jeremiah takes one look at Daly and falls hard. The old feelings that he's tried to hide for the past three years come flooding back in.

A little danger, intrigue and lots of steamy sex surround Daly and Jeremiah. Each of them acknowledge the mistakes they made and the love they still feel for each other, but can they really put the past aside and make it work this time?

A steamy read that I couldn't put down.

Lea Griffith began sneaking her mother’s romance novels at a very young age, cutting her teeth on the greats: McNaught, Woodiwiss, Garwood. As she got older, her need to devour all genres of romance–including contemporary, paranormal, and sci-fi—grew. Now, when she’s not working her day job, you can usually find her at her keyboard, using every spare second to write. She lives with her husband and three teenage daughters in rural Georgia.

Casey’s Warriors by Ann Mayburn is Now Available

Caseys Warriors Tour Banner

Adar has searched more than a lifetime to find his bondmate—the one woman he was born to love and the only woman who can save him from the approaching madness that threatens all unbonded males of his race. When a wormhole opens from his galaxy to Earth and the women who could hold their future, Lorn will do all in his power to not only find his mate, but show her a Universe she never knew existed.

Casey Westfall’s normal life changed forever when she finds the sexy leather clad man on her doorstep. One innocent kiss leads to an adventure that will span worlds and Casey will have to choose between the man who is the other half of her soul and never seeing her family or her world again. To complicate matters Kadothians live in polyamerous family units and Lorn will have to convince his Earth bride to accept not only his love, but the love of his best friend and brothers in arms or risk the chance of losing them to either the madness or the Hive—the race of sociopathic women bent on destroying and enslaving everything in their path, but Casey can’t see loving more than one man as being anything other than a sin. Lorn will have to teach his bride that she was created for both of them just as they were created only for her.

In a Universe where all is possible, the battle to protect not only his people, but his heart rests on the soul of a human woman who must face the unknown and take a leap of faith that could save or destroy them all.

Head over to Ann’s website for a sneak peek of Chapter One

Ann is Queen of the Castle to her wonderful husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she's been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened.

From a young age she's been fascinated by myths and fairytales, and the romance that often was the center of the story. As Ann grew older and her hormones kicked in, she discovered trashy romance novels. Great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she's never looked back.

Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her 'sexy space' and has learned to type one handed while soothing a cranky baby.

Blackjack & Moonlight by Magdalen Braden Blog Tour

Sex v. Love—a battle in the courtroom and the bedroom!

Hotshot litigator Elise Carroll doesn’t have time for romance—she wants to make partner at her Philadelphia law firm. Despite her mother’s urging, Elise avoids settling down by keeping her relationships short and sexy. Her idea of a perfect date? Beer and pretzels at a Phillies game.

When Jack “Blackjack” McIntyre—Philly’s super-sexy new judge—falls for Elise in court, she’s horrified. He “claims” to be in love with her—but that can’t possibly be true. He doesn’t give up trying to wine and dine her, though, so she devises a new scheme. Like all men, surely he’ll leave after a short and sexy fling.

Only problem—Blackjack refuses to sleep with her! They compromise—she’ll go on his romantic dates if he’ll alternate them with her “just sex” dates. Their contract works surprisingly well—until Elise can no longer find the line between love and sex.

Can Elise get her life back where she wants it—in a partner’s office? Or will Jack McIntyre use his superpowers to win their contest of wits?

“I made a reservation for seven-thirty,” Jack said carefully. He was standing in the doorway of the living room, ready to head right out. He held his wrist like he wanted to refer to his watch but was too polite.

Elise grinned at him and pointed. “The phone’s over there. You can cancel the reservation.”

His frown tightened. “You’re not feeling well?”

“On the contrary, I feel great.” She walked over to him, placing her hands on his coat lapels. “Are you sure you won’t take off this coat?”

“No. I mean, yes. I’m sure.” He stepped back a few inches. He looked stern and unwavering—a bit like he had when he’d been prosecuting Philly’s mob boss Dino “T-Rex” Reggiano. No sense of humor, clearly. Either that, or he was about to find her in contempt of court.

“Jack,” she soothed. “I can feed you if you’re hungry. Gusto’s delivers. It’s pretty good pizza.”

The offer seemed to startle him, which warmed her cynical heart no end. She watched as he considered his options.

“I would prefer to take you out to dinner. If you’ll uh, put on some clothes,” he said, studiously not noticing her breasts, which felt very perky under the thin silk of her robe. “I’ll have Gino put back our reservation at La Famiglia.”

“I don’t need to be wined and dined. I’m happy to skip straight to dessert. And by ‘dessert,’ of course, I mean sex.”

Elise drew her hand down the gray flannel sleeve closest to her. She let her fingertips skate along his hand, which he twitched away and hid behind his back. She glanced at his face. He looked stony enough for Mount Rushmore. She hadn’t thought Jack could get more austere—he appeared almost apoplectic with frustration. He clearly hadn’t gotten laid in a while.

This was going to be fun.

“That’s not why I’m here,” he insisted. He stopped trying to limit his gaze to her face. Now he was staring over her right shoulder.

“Well, that’s why I invited you. For sex.”

“I want to date you, not sleep with you.” He said it as though he were stating the obvious to a dim-witted defendant.

So crusty and serious. Elise couldn’t resist teasing him. “Really? You don’t want to sleep with me? Not even a little?”

That got his attention. He narrowed his eyes as he met her look. “Ah, the litigator’s trick. Won’t work. Of course I will want to sleep with you. But tonight, no. What I want tonight is to take you out to dinner.”

“Funny,” Elise said, reaching down to brush her fingertips over his groin. “I could have sworn you were interested in having sex sooner rather than later—”

He took another half step back and glared at her. “Still won’t work. That’s a physiological reaction. It doesn’t change my stated intention to take you to dinner. You said you would come on a date with me.”

“Assuming facts not entered into evidence, Your Honor,” she objected. “All I said was okay. No one bothered to ask what I was saying okay to, and as there wasn’t an explicit offer on the table, you can’t read terms into my acceptance.”

“Elise,” he growled.

“Judge,” she growled back at him.

He really was going to throw a blood clot, she thought, as his face contorted with frustration. It got almost—but not quite—ugly. She didn’t think anything could make him look ugly. Damn him. And why didn’t he want to skip straight to the sex? If she made herself any more available, she’d be draped over the couch wearing nothing but a shiny red ribbon.

Suddenly his face cleared. His shoulders dropped a full inch and he even managed a slight smile. He folded his arms and leaned back.

“Fair enough. You’re absolutely right. We didn’t spend enough time yesterday negotiating terms. By all means let’s do that now.”

“I don’t want to negotiate terms. I want to take you upstairs, unwrap you like a Christmas present, and get sweaty with you in my bed.”

“I understand that, Elise.” He made her name sound like a Gypsy curse. “I am declining that generous offer. My counteroffer of dinner at a five-star restaurant is clearly unacceptable to you. So let’s try to find some middle ground.”

Ruthie – ☆☆☆☆☆
I really, really enjoyed this book. It is well written, the plot stacks up and the characters are delightful. It is a fun, hot, romantic and intelligent read - perfect. Authors who like to mix things up a bit, and make us think about the reality of conventions, often create the best stories. I have every intention of adding this to my reread pile, as it deserves it.

Thank you very much Ms. Braden for an excellent story.

Mary Jo – ☆☆☆☆
I really enjoyed the role reversals in this book. Here, "Blackjack" McIntyre is the one who was hit with the "love at first sight" bug and Elise Carroll, the defense attorney in his courtroom is the cynic when it comes to love.

It was entertaining to see the male's perspective and how he tried hard to convince Elise that love at first sight was real. Elise's attitudes and issues got a little much for me at times, but I liked the honesty in which the author wrote the character.

Twisted Together by Pepper Winters Blog Tour

“After battling through hell, I brought my esclave back from the brink of ruin. I sacrificed everything--my heart, my mind, my very desires to bring her back to life. And for a while, I thought it broke me, that I'd never be the same. But slowly the beast is growing bolder, and it's finally time to show Tess how beautiful the dark can be.”

Q gave everything to bring Tess back. In return, he expects nothing less. Tess may have leashed and tamed him, but he's still a monster inside.

After surviving the darkness, a new dawn has begun. Twisted Together wades through black to grey, chasing the light of true love to banish the shadows forever.

Pain is a requirement, connection a necessity. But ultimately Q and Tess must face their demons, before they can embrace their future.

Q no longer looked devilish but royal.

My heart flew free, fluttering to the ceiling.

“Donne-moi tes mains.” Give me your hands. The order whispered through the golden light, quintessentially him. His raspy, melodic voice had a power over me he wasn’t aware of. I instantly locked my wrists together, jutting them toward him.

Q didn’t say a word as he accepted my gift, wrapping soft, black fabric around me. The silk looked like morbid blood, as if I’d slashed my wrists in a fit of insanity.

The moment he’d restrained me, Q tugged the cord, making me stretch even further across the table, securing it somehow. Once tied, he strolled back toward me, setting my heart jumping and body dissolving under his intense stare.

My back was icy cold while my front was toasty warm. The two sensations, coupled with my lack of mobility, made my lungs suck in air as if oxygen was about to go extinct. The closer Q came, the more lightheaded and woozy I was.

I flinched as he cupped my ass.

“What are you going to do?” I didn’t bother testing the binds. I knew Q—he had a way with ropes—there would be no chance of escape.

“Sometimes, the only way to make your dreams come true is to shatter them,” he said, circling me like a predator. “Sometimes, the only way to make your nightmares disappear is by facing them.”

4 Twisted Stars!!

Pepper Winters delivers another dark, twisted, breathtaking story! A great conclusion for Quincy and Tess! All the monsters fed!!!

The blackness tried to swallow us whole, kill us, ruin us, capture our soul.

I felt sad at the beginning of the story. Doubt creeped in my mind, reminding me off the darkness Tess has went through. I was worried about their relationship. Can they seek the happiness they both deserve? My heart broke for Q, my heart hurt for Tess!

Intertwined, tangled, knotted forever, our souls will always be twisted together, our demons, our monsters belong to the other, Bow to me, I bow to thee, now we are free.

Tess- you are the perfect match for Q, your strength is his strength!

My name is Tess Mercer. I'm no longer weak or afraid or broken.

Q- you are the perfect match for Tess, your monsters are her monsters!

If you do, then I'll be the best master and husband the world has ever seen. I'll give you a life full of experiences and passion. We'll finally find peace in the dark.

Whew! What a rocky road! I'm so very fulfilled with this ending. Although I could probably read about these monsters every day!

I'm your monster in the dark forever.

Shelby – ☆☆☆☆☆
“Life taught me an eternal love will demand the worst sacrifices. A transcendent love will split your soul, cleaving you into pieces. A love this strong doesn’t grant you sweetness—it grants you pain. And in that pain is the greatest pleasure of all.”

I'm experiencing mixed feelings right now, as I'm not sure I'm ready to say goodbye to these characters!

Tess and Q's final story was filled with strife, love, and sexy goodness (as can be expected from Ms.Winters) - it was thrilling, to say the least.

I laughed, I screamed, I cried, I was on the edge of my seat, and my heart soared. I'm in awe of the author that can make me experience ALL of this in 1 book.

This is an epic, dark, love story about 2 people whom find their "forever" in the arms of their PERFECT match.

“I no longer hate my demons because you fight them on my behalf. I no longer feel alone because you are my home. I no longer fear myself because you control my beast. I’m your monster, Tess. I’ll kill those who hurt you. I’ll nurture those who tend you. I’ll never stop hunting your nightmares or providing a perfect life. ”

There is really nothing more beautiful than that.

Angie – ☆☆☆☆☆
I fell in love with Tess and Q in the first book, the second book I loved them even more, this book, my heart is overwhelmed with all the emotions from this whole journey and I will miss these characters and their story. It is one I will read over and over. Twisted Together was the perfect completion of Tess and Q’s story. I felt every emotion as if I was experiencing it myself. Pepper Winters is an amazing writer and this series will go down as one of the best ever written!

Characters: I loved these characters before but this book brings them both to life in such
different ways, they are simply amazingly written.
Sex: Off the charts amazing sex!

Pepper Winters wears many roles. Some of them include writer, reader, sometimes wife. She loves dark, taboo stories that twist with your head. The more tortured the hero the better and she constantly thinks up ways to break and fix her characters. Oh, and sex… her books have sex.

She loves to travel and has an amazing, fabulous hubby (who speaks French—hot!) who puts up with her love affair with her book boyfriends. She loves to hear from her readers so hit her up at

When a ghost from her past visits, it could be the leverage they need to do exactly that ”" put her back into the game of murder and deceit. Tori has decided to run, in an attempt to protect her new friends, by fleeing from LA.

Wanting a place to call home and feel safe from the madness, she sets out with a plan to disappear and hide in anonymity. Her idea only holds one flaw: a man she can’t shake, who won’t take 'No' for an answer.

In this installment, Tori is continuing to build a life for herself and FINALLY putting down some "roots." She's coming into her own and it's genuinely uplifting. As she begins to "come out of her shell" she's also starting to trust - question is who CAN and SHOULD she trust?!

Not much "action" occurs, instead it's full of introspective growth for our heroine - She is one strong woman. As soon as you begin to feel excited that she will get to live a normal life, you realize that her life is a cruel joke.

Based on the past two books, I feel this one was a bit more low-key.

BUT I still NEED TO KNOW what happens!!!!

This series just gets better and better - I hope the next installment isn't too long in coming ...

Again I stopped normal life and immersed myself in Tori's world - and what a great place it was to be. Her indomitable spirit almost in spite of her conscious thoughts is wonderfully expressed by the writer.

You need to have read books one (Captive) and two (Bound) to get the full story, but there is some reflection which gives further understanding of her upbringing.

I loved it!

Entwined is book 3 of 7 in Samantha Jacobey's New Life series and the books must be read in order. This series is a tough read, given the life our heroine has lead, but worth reading.

Told mostly from the point of view of Tori's travelling companion, Entwined gives us a different view of Tori and I think this helps keeps the story fresh. Entwined has a quiet, steady pace and the relationship between Tori and her travelling companion is built slowly and is very well written. The whole time I was reading knowing I was being lulled into a false sense of security, knowing at some point Tori's past was going to have to come back and bite her. For me this has been the best book so far.

I am completely in love with this series and can't wait for book 4. I would highly recommend Entwined and the entire New Life series.

3.5 Stars!!
This is the third book in the series, you must read the first two in order to understand everything. Ok, this starts right where the second ended.

This book didn't hold my attention like the first two did, it took me a couple of days to read it, unlike the others which I read in just a few hours. I think this was more character driven, I don't have a problem with that, I just got bored. We didn't get any action until the very end. I need my suspense/action throughout the story to keep me interested.

I do love the characters in this series, and I seriously need to know what's going to happen. I hope the fourth book is darker, with more action!!!

Tori is finally able to leave the halfway house and she is not alone. Michael Anderson, Henry's younger brother, is with her and he only wants to protect her as he promised Henry he would do. Tori wants him gone, she doesn't need anyone to protect her. So they travel together to Denver to a storage locker to retrieve what she is looking for. Turns out the locker was Henry's and she picked up a toolbox full of money. Then they travel to Texas to open a shop to buy, repair and sell bikes. All the while thinking they are free and no one is after them. But the F.B.I. has other ideas, but what are they? This story will pull you in from the very first page of Captive, through Bound and to the end of Entwined. I hope there will be more to this series, I want more, and need to know what happens with Tori and Michael. Such a great series, you should pick them up and enjoy the ride that Samantha has set for it, I loved it.

Anyone who knows me could tell you, I am a friendly kind of person, never met a stranger and take up conversations anywhere at any time. I work hard, and my mind never seems to shut down, as I wake up often in the middle of the night with ideas pouring out and demanding to be dealt with. Of course that means much of my books were written in the middle of the night.

I grew up and still live in the great state of Texas where everything is bigger, where we have warm weather and a central location. I love my state, my town, and my family, which includes my four sons, my significant other, and many friends as well.

I have thoroughly enjoyed writing the books that are currently available and hope you will enjoy reading them just as much. And of course, there will be many more stories to come.
