The Priest

by Tiffany Reisz

Published by 8th Circle Press

Book # 9 in the Original Sinners Series

New Orleans, four months after the events of THE QUEEN...

Søren has been suspended from the Jesuits for a minimum of one year after confessing to fathering a child.

To say he's struggling with his newfound freedom is an understatement.

Kingsley is about to be a father again and is convinced something very bad is about to happen. Nerves? Or is he right that the time has come for the Sinners to pay for their sins?

And if things couldn't get worse, a handsome private detective shows up and tells Mistress Nora that a priest has just committed suicide, and she was the last person he tried to call. He would like to know why...

She doesn't know, but Nora and her new detective friend will turn over the city to find out, meeting liars, vampires, and witches along the way. When she finds what she's looking for, she may wish she'd never stepped foot in New Orleans.

Read the book and you will understand the Doctor Who GIF choice. :)


Steamy Erotica Exciting


The Priest by Tiffany Reisz is the ninth book in the Original Sinners series, and centers around Nora Sutherland, now living in New Orleans, and a new character in the series, Cyrus Tremont, a private detective. After a local priest commits suicide, after calling Nora's old phone number, these two complete opposites come together to get answers. It's a whole new genre for the Original Sinners series.

Every book in the Original Sinners series has been unique, and The Priest is no different. I have to admit though, it was a little harder to get through this novel, compared to the past eight. It's not that it isn't good. It's great! I think the jump from erotica ... with some of the most descriptive, intense sex I have ever read ... to a mystery novel (that yes, still has BDSM and is still erotica), kind of mind-fucked me at first. The mystery was good though (if perhaps a bit predictable. I guessed right away why the priest committed suicide, but was unsure why he called Nora). The Priest stayed true to it's characters, and in really showed how our main trio, Nora, Søren, and Kingsley, have settled down into their new lives and in their relationships. They are all getting older after all, and with Kingsley and Juliette adding to their family, it makes sense.
