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

Dee The author says it could be. Honestly, I think you may like it better as a stand-alone than if you knew the background of the characters.

It's never safe to assume anything when reading a Tiffany Reisz book. Don't assume you know where the twisted story will lead. Don't assume your favorite characters will survive unscathed. Don't assume the story will leave your heart and soul intact - it won't. What you can assume (in fact you can take it to the bank) is that once you open the cover and step inside a Reisz book, you'll lose all sense of time and obligation until you read the final page.

My favourite author is releasing a new book!!
My favourite series is BACK!!

Am I dreaming?!

Is this real?!

Brb, happy crying and re-reading this series for the 100th time!

I've already put in my leave request for the 20th of April, 2020 so I can sit and read this book in peace and die because my heart is going to explode!
4.5 stars. I don't really know how to feel about this. Almost everything I want to say would be a huge spoiler.

For the most part, I loved it. It was Nora, Søren & Kingsley and that's always my ideal. Nora seems to be happier and more settled *as much as she ever is, LOL* into her life. There doesn't seem to be any more turmoil about where, and with who, she belongs. But Nora is still Nora, and I'm always vastly entertained by that. Kingsley seems to be semi-retired from the kink scene. He still

Where do I start? I don't want to say too much.

But what I do have to say first ....This is officially book #9 in this series. Tiffany says readers new to the series can read it without knowing anything about the other books. And yes, that may be true ... but I wouldn't do that. I am way too book-OCD-ish to start a series with book 9!! If you want to read this book, please read all the others first - they are SO good!

Temptation, boredom, and my contrary nature pushed me to check out this latest Tiffany Reisz offering in the Original Sinners, which I would probably say it's one of the best erotica series, except that I haven't read many, actually, Tiffany Reisz's books are the only ones I still check out, because she can write well.

And what better time to read about a Catholic priest, a kinky one, but at Easter? ;-) {Sorry, not sorry. }

The Original Sinners are a group that I adore. Søren, Nora and Kingsley embedded themselves way back in The Siren(Book 1 in the series) and I was hooked. The writing, the storytelling, the intriguing characters are such an addicting combination that I couldn’t wait till I got my hands on The Priest.

I will say this story was a little different in that it was a little more suspenseful in a “who done it” storyline with questioning the “what ifs” of the past. There is pure passion in the book but it
4.5 ★

Continuing in the Original Sinners timeline, Nora Sutherlin has relocated to New Orleans with her chosen family. While Søren is suspended for one year and Kingsley and Juliette are expecting baby number two, a local priest is found dead and Nora was his last phone call. A local detective, Cyrus Tremont, is hired to get answers, but after meeting Nora, he discovers there may be many more questions.

After years of hiding their relationship, Nora and Søren were adapting well towards their newfound freedom. But as they established routines, a case pulled her into a different direction and if not careful, could derail their hard-fought relationship.

I was excited and nervous when I saw my favorite romance/erotica series is continuing with a full-length book. However, this book was not at all what I

You know what?

I *think* this might be the first Reisz book I've read wherein my face didn't leak. Took me 9 books but I finally got there!

*does victory lap*

First things first, The Priest really is more of a crime thriller/mystery than your traditional OS book. I thought I would find that disappointing but instead I found myself not only engrossed but committed to trying to figure out why Father Ike would've committed suicide. I did not foresee the reason and I loved that while also applauding Ms

I like this series. This one you could probably read out of order since they recap some of the more important events from the past, but in order to really "get" it, you should probably start from book 1.

This one is a little different since it's got a mystery vibe to it. I like the P.I. character, Cyrus Tremont. A good portion of the story was about him and the investigation to find out if a priest found dead had committed suicide and if so, why? I liked the twisty story along with some of Nora's

First read of 2020. 🎉
"Something tells me it's coming. Storm clouds gathering. I can see them."
You and me both, Søren. Elements in this book have been a long time coming, and long talks overdue, but Reisz had it all mapped out and the timing was perfect. A smart book that explores issues related to race, gender, and the abuse of power. Misconduct wears many faces. Tiffany Reisz, I am so proud of you.

Full of mystery, new friends, humor, sexy fun, and important themes, Reisz never disappoints. The Priest i

Written with incredible imagery and kink. Damn it’s good.
I’ve read a few of Tiffany’s books in the past but I don’t believe I’ve read any of the past series this is attached to but that is something that will be changed as soon as possible.

Holy smokes. This book is intense in many different ways. From the dark edges of New Orleans, dripping with heat both temperature wise and sensuality, The Priest pushes many boundaries.

“That’s Mistress Little One to you.”

The unholy trinity, together with Kingsley's family, are settling and enjoying their life in New Orleans and with Søren being suspended, he and Nora were enjoying and basking their new found layer in their relationship. “This is weird, walking with you at night in public.”

When Nora's business card is found on a priest who committed suicide, our residence dominatrix, being quite intrigued, becomes a concerned sleuth together with PI Cyrus Tremont.

My level of excitement for this release was immeasurable since I will never get my fill of Nora, Kingsley, and Søren. I am completely obsessed and fascinated by this unholy trio and one would think after nine installments, the story-lines would become stale, tiresome, or monotonous. Nothing could be further from the truth. With The Priest, Reisz once again penned a novel that consumed me from beginning to end, leaving me both satisfied with the story told, yet craving more. She is a siren whose ...more

Tiffany Reisz is back with another Original Sinners book! THE PRIEST marks book nine in the series and I would read the series in order. Although this reads fine as a standalone, you wouldn’t know the context and history of the characters in the book.

I’ve noticed that Reisz has gone for a different tone in this book. THE PRIEST has a bigger emphasis on a murder mystery. As a lover of Mysteries, I was really intrigued by this concept. At the beginning of the book, a priest is dead and it is

I loved it! I still love Søren. He's so touching with his love for Fionn and his tattoo on his wrist where his pulse is. He's my favorite character of the Tiffany Reisz series. And as long as he lives and we can read about him, I'll keep reading Ms. Reisz's novels. If she kills him or if he disappears from her novels, I will disappear from her readership; it's as simple as that. She could even write a novel to tell us what Søren did while he was travelling alone. No need to tell much more about ...more

5 stars.

Yep! I reread it already. I had to! When my precious paperback copy arrived, I couldn't just put it on my bookshelf without reading it. Not after worrying my pre-order would be cancelled. Not after worrying my book would get lost on its way to me like another one I really looked forward to did. (Damn those viruses!)

It's always lovely to read a book I loved in paperback, but that's not why my rating went up half a star. No, it's because this time I knew how the mystery would p

Here I am...staring off into space, wondering what I am going to do with my life now that I've finished this book. Was this my favorite in the series? No. Did I enjoy it? Absolutely. You see, Nora Sutherlin is probably one of my...if not, the heroines ever for me. I adore the way Ms. Reisz has written her. The way after 9 books and countless novellas she doesn't veer from character canon...Nora's smart, savvy, beautiful, wicked, jaded...and a wee bit broken. This lady has been th ...more

I’ve missed these guys so much. I know we get Sinners Christmas presents and sometimes Halloween presents, but to get another entire book was priceless. All the Christmas, Easter and Eid gifts in one.

In crazy, crazy times I read this book. The fact that it took me longer than usual to read it is nothing to do with the book not being gripping, it’s because watching the news became a must.

"Eleanor, you really should know better by now." he said. "Never flirt with a sadist in a well-stocked dungeon."

I had to share that with you, it made me giggle. While this story has some of the things that I've come to expect and always enjoy, it surprised me as well. I'd classify this one as romantic suspense. I really enjoyed the mystery-solving side of the journey the author took me on. I also enjoyed meeting the new characters that were introduced in the telling of this tale.

ARC from Netgalley

DNF @ 14%, so no rating. I don't feel like much has happened in this book so far, and I feel like the tone is different from the rest of the series. 14% in, and I'm already over how stunning and beautiful every single character is. This is also a case of being careful what you wish for. Because while I always want more of The Original Sinners, I feel like this series has run its course.

This book was both fun and thought provoking. Fun in Nora's antics with a PI trying to figure out the reason why a priest was calling her five minutes before killing himself (that wasn't the fun part though, her antics with the PI were). She didn't get the call since it was to her old New York number from an old business card from before moving to New Orleans.

So the mystery was why did this priest call her, and how did he get her card, and who gave it to him? She didn't pass out that card when

Soren, Nora, Kingsley, Juliette - we get them all in this one. My heart hurts at the thought of this series one day coming to an end. Luckily that is not today.

Plenty of taboo and painful subjects are covered in this one. The dialogue was exceptional, as usual, the imagery - divine.

I got no words. These characters mean so much to me.
And to read this new era for them. Incedible.
To see them evolve and adapt to these new and different for them situations was EPIC.!!!

Not gonna lie, I would love a little more elaboration on some things but I cannot deny that I don't care for them. I only care for my babies, The Unholy Trinity. And this book gave me all the feels.

Kingsley is and always gonna be the best of the best. I wanna see so much more of this 'new' Kingsley with his family
