The Angel - Tiffany Reisz

The Angel - Tiffany Reisz

About the book:
No safe word can protect the heartInfamous erotica author and accomplished dominatrix Nora Sutherlin is doing something utterly out of character: hiding. While her longtime lover, Søren—whose fetishes, if exposed, would be his ruin—is under scrutiny pending a major promotion, Nora's lying low and away from temptation in the lap of luxury.

Her host, the wealthy and uninhibited Griffin Fiske, is thrilled to have Nora stay at his country estate, especially once he meets her traveling companion. Young, inexperienced and angelically beautiful, Michael has become Nora's protégé, and this summer with Griffin is going to be his training, where the hazing never ends.

But while her flesh is willing, Nora's mind is wandering. To thoughts of Søren, her master, under investigation by a journalist with an ax to grind. And to another man from Nora's past, whose hold on her is less bruising, but whose secrets are no less painful. It's a summer that will prove the old adage: love hurts.


My Review:

This the second novel in her series does not leave the reader disappointed in fact it leaves you hanging on the edge of your seat for more from Reisz. I fell in love with the series after reading the Siren, but boy does she give us even more here to captivate and fill our time. Not wanting to put it down until it is all completed I found my great love for Nora all over again and as she grows and develops through this series of books I find that she is more and more loveable even though her past is not one to be proud of. The author carries and pulls you through every word making you feel not only the characters but also the surroundings and the depth of the feelings that everyone feels for each other. Yet she manages to tease the senses and give you that little twist that you didn't see coming all of this leading and adding to the suspense you get when you read the last page and realise that for this book you have finished, but you want to carry on reading and find out where Nora is going next and the lengths and steps she will take to get there. Her path is always paved with ruts and pit falls, but somehow she works her way through and comes out the other side stronger and more ready to take on any challenge than she was before. I loved, loved, loved this book and can't praise the author enough for giving us a look into the world of not only Nora but Soren and everyone else who appears and grows throughout these books as their lives intertwine and mesh together. I know I will be running out to get the next instalment.

Wet your taste buds for more......... we have an excerpt for you to check out too. 


There was only one word that could describe the creature standing before him. Wonderful.
“Did you say something?” the woman whispered.
He shook his head. “Nothing, I just can’t believe my luck. You really are real and here with me.”
She smiled, but her smile didn’t extend to her eyes.
Before another heartbeat passed or another breath taken, he stood at her side. With tenderness, he gazed into her gentle, masked face and took both of her hands in his. He was humbled as her fingers trembled even more than his own did. “We don’t have to do this if you’d rather not.”
She smiled wider, and her eyes gleamed with mischief. “I suppose we might as well. After all, we’re already here, and you’re at least halfway undressed.”
Sliding his hands up her arms and around her shoulders to her back, Sarco felt for and found the clasps holding her gown together. With the flick of a wrist, they gave way, and with a swish, the silky fabric fell to her hips exposing lush, rose-tipped breasts. Just the right size to hold in both hands, to fondle, to caress, to taste.
“Hmm, it seems you’re halfway undressed yourself.”

Short Excerpt:

I took the first book off the stack and examined the cover. It was titled Vampires throughout History. The cover was leather and so old it was stiff and cracked in spots. The pages showed signs of age too, yellowing and stiff to the touch. There was no table of contents, so it looked like I was going to have to scan the entire book for what I was wanting. I flipped the pages carefully, so as not to tear any of them.
After an hour of scanning and about half way through the book, I found something referring to vampire children.
Although extremely rare, the natural-born offspring of vampires exist throughout the world. These rare beings are called the dhampir. Dhampir are usually the product of a vampire and mortal. The most common of these unions is a male vampire impregnating a mortal woman. Vampires, both male and female, are seductive in nature and some mortals came willingly to these unions. However, the majority of dhampir born were produced through an act of rape.
Solitary by nature, it is uncommon for a vampire to settle with any one mate for long. The children of vampires, the dhampir, more often than not exhibit all the characteristics of their vampire parent. The strength, speed and agility are the usual hereditary traits that the children develop. They are not always born with these traits but develop them as they grow into adulthood.
The dhampir are day walkers. Some of these children are sensitive to the sunlight but will not perish in the direct rays. Most have no sensitivity at all. Drinking the fresh blood of mortals is also not usually required of the dhampir; however, some have a liking for it. Very few actually need it to survive.
Most dhampir are rejected by the vampire species because of their mortality and weaknesses. Mortals often reject the dhampir, as well, due to their vampirism, so they frequently remain outcast.
Dhampir are known for becoming vampire killers. Their closeness to the vampires and their vampire characteristics make them powerful vampire hunters. The unique ability to track and kill vampires is specific to only the dhampir and the mythological race of vampire hunters.
Historically, dhampir became vampire hunters as a trade. Towns and villages became plagued by vampires who were terrorizing their homes and killing their people. The dhampir accepted contracts in exchange for monetary payment and used their likeness to their vampire counterparts to exterminate the vampires.
Holy crap, that was a lot to process. The more I read the passages, the more I understood that my being a hunter was more than my heritage; it was my history and my future. Everything about my bloodlines had hunters involved.

 Author Bio:
Jennifer Malone Wright resides in the beautiful mountains of northern Idaho with her husband and five children. Between the craziness of taking care of her children, whose ages range from fourteen all the way down to six months, and being a homemaker, Jennifer has little time left for herself.

When she grew up, Jennifer always had her nose in a book. She has been writing stories and poems since grade school. This love of the written word and her strong interest in the paranormal is what has led to her first novel “The Birth of Jaiden.”
In addition to being a mother and homemaker, Jennifer is also a very proud military wife. Moving around the country for the last ten years has made her a bit of a nomad and she finds it difficult to be in one place for too long.

My Review:

This another prequel novella by Tiffany to her best selling series, this novella is a quick and easy read and I know that I loved finding out all about Nora and how she got where she is today. The author managed to capture and keep you wanting more and not wanting to leave this book until you were done, always wanting to find out more about Nora and how she lived in the years running up to the Siren. This book is definitely one not to be missed. The trials and emotions that Nora goes through in her stay and the confusion that it brings when she is left with another while Soren travels away is gripping and heart warming yet it never loses the essence of who and what it is she will become. This book is one to get if you love the series so far and is free to all until the end of Dec 12 so make sure you go and grab a copy now it will be well worth the few minutes it takes. I hold my hands up to Reisz'z writing and the way she manages to convey her stories in such a way that it always leaves you hanging and wanting more no matter what it is of hers that you pick up. She is one author that if you love the genre you can never go wrong with and never need to read the blurb for her books she will always deliver as she does so well and on so many occasions
