The Red by Tiffany Reisz
Never make a promise you don’t intend to keep…
Mona Lisa St. James made a deathbed promise that she would do anything to save her mother’s art gallery. Unfortunately, not only is The Red painted red, but it’s in the red. She soon realizes she has no choice but to sell it.
Just as she realizes she has no choice but to sell it, a mysterious man comes in after closing time and makes her an offer: He will save The Red if she agrees to submit to him for the period of one year.
The man is handsome, English, and terribly tempting…but surely her mother didn’t mean for Mona to sell herself to a stranger. Then again, she did promise to do anything to save The Red…
The Red is a standalone novel of erotic fantasy from Tiffany Reisz, international bestselling author of The Bourbon Thief and the Original Sinners series.
Smart and smutty.
Tiffany Reisz delivers a story rife with mystery, overflowing with sex, and filled with lush atmosphere. The settings of renown works of art, married with intelligent dialog and introspection, will have you contemplating the past and present, female sexuality, societal norms, and prostitution.
Malcolm makes Mona an offer…
In exchange for one year of full sexual submission, Malcolm will help Mona save her floundering art gallery, The Red. He chooses the time, the setting. He gets full access.
Their kinky, varied sex is told in “scenes” that feel a bit like vignettes within the book. I’ll admit, while the sex is smoking and there is a lot of it, it did leave me feeling detached from them. At least until towards the end.
It was the end that brought the connection for me. Even though it was rushed, everything clicked back into place. All questions are answered and loose ends tied up.
If you are looking for unique and thought-provoking Erotica, Tiffany Reisz always delivers.
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.
