Book Description



Notorious Nora Sutherlin is famous for her delicious works of erotica, each one more popular with readers than the last. But her latest manuscript is different—more serious, more personal—and she's sure it'll be her breakout book…if it ever sees the light of day.

Zachary Easton holds Nora's fate in his well-manicured hands. The demanding British editor agrees to handle the book on one condition: he wants complete control. Nora must rewrite the entire novel to his exacting standards—in six weeks—or it's no deal.

Nora's grueling writing sessions with Zach are draining…and shockingly arousing. And a dangerous former lover has her wondering which is more torturous—staying away from him…or returning to his bed?

Nora thought she knew everything about being pushed to your limits. But in a world where passion is pain, nothing is ever that simple.



Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In a story with themes that will cross the line for some readers, , Reisz tackles the story of erotica writer Nora Sutherlin 7.who is leaving her old publishing house. The head of her new publisher 7-9 orders Zachary Easton to edit Nora's novel. Zachary, still shell-shocked by his impending divorce back in his native Britain, is six weeks away from moving to the publisher's Los Angeles office and the last thing he wants to do is edit what he considers to be trash. Zach takes on the project with one caveat: he will have complete creative control. Zach soon finds that Nora isn't the trash-writing trollop he assumed, but a complicated woman whose twisted ideas of love were formed early in life. As both battle their demons‚--îNora, a sadistic old lover and Zach, regret over his failed‚--îthey find a true connection. While both characters are well drawn, the author never quite makes either completely sympathetic, and many are likely to find the themes contained in the story‚--îincluding hard-core S&M and a sexual relationship with a Catholic priest‚--îobjectionable. Sensationalistic but not overly compelling.

Review

"Tiffany Reisz is a smart, artful, and masterful new voice in erotic fiction! An erotica star on the rise!"-Award-winning author Lacey Alexander

"Dazzling, devastating and sinfully erotic, Reisz writes unforgettable characters you'll either want to know or want to be. The Siren is an alluring book-within-a-book, a story that will leave you breathless and bruised, aching for another chapter with Nora Sutherlin and her men."

-Miranda Baker, author of Bottoms Up and Soloplay

The Original Sinners series certainly lives up to its name: it's mindbendingly original and crammed with more sin than you can shake a hot poker at. I haven't read a book this dangerous and subversive since Chuck Palahniuk's Fight Club. The most shocking thing, however, is how much you'll feel for the characters. If your heart doesn't break at least ten times over the course of The Siren, check yourself into a morgue."--Andrew Shaffer, author, Great Philosophers Who Failed at Love

"Provocative, smart and downright cheeky. The Siren put me through my paces and had me begging for more."

-Emma Petersen, author of Reign of Pleasure

"Daring, sophisticated, and literary. . .exactly what good erotica should be."

-Kitty Thomas, author of Tender Mercies

5.0 out of 5 stars 10 out of 10 hearts! August 8, 2012
Format:Paperback
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Little Bird Publicity in exchange for an honest review, as part of the virtual book tour

I have a SO much to say about The Siren, so this review may be incoherent; it makes me that big of a bumbling mess. But I'll tell you a secret: all the best books do.

I suppose I should warn you: This book isn't what you're expecting. If you are a fan of romance novels, you will not like The Siren. If you enjoy erotica, smut with explicitly arousing pornographic detail, and no romance in between, you too will be disappointed because The Siren is neither. The blurb and cover indicate otherwise, I know. I picked up this one thinking it was just another Harlequin but with a kinkier theme. I assumed it was a variant of the regular romance novels we know and love/hate, with a cute but trite twist on the heroine who is an erotica author (as opposed to, say, a sexy librarian, single mother, English student, tourist, or whatever other props romance novelists are inclined to use), and another one on the hero, who's a handsome but provocative Brit. Swoon. Sounds like a romance, right? Nice try, but no. To say there is a hero and heroine to begin with, is a ridiculous statement. To the traditional literature fans who demand two protagonists in a love story: you will be sorely dissatisfied; there are none.

So then, you are brought to ask, why DO I freaking love this book so much. In so many words (or, relatively none at all), it's because The Siren is complex. It's not a book you read and forget about the next day. It's incredibly intelligent in both structure and style: a perfect combination of present-day havoc and brief, flitting memories, with a deep, effortless tone that must be superglue -- I couldn't keep my hands off!

5.0 out of 5 stars More than Just Erotica May 10, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I've spent the last two days in stunned awe at this book trying to come up with the right words to describe it. I'm still not sure I have them.

This wasn't erotica. This was a heart-wrenching, soul-aching story about people who keep coming together and falling apart. I laughed, I came damn close to crying and I was sucked in from the first page and The Siren didn't release it's grip on my throat until the book was over. Long after the book was over.

Nora's character is so complex I could read a hundred books about her and never really understand the whole of who she is. It would take over a million books to understand Soren and his relationship with Nora. These people are complex, are honest, are real and so intelligently written it's as though they could walk off the page.

Yes, there is sex. Yes, there is the BDSM lifestyle. Yes, it is hot and steamy but if that's all you're looking for, if you just want the titillation then go find a different book. If you like smart, fun, deep, books with a heavy sensual side then The Siren is the book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars HOLY WOW May 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Holy wow. Just finished this book and still trying to process everything. It's not your mother's love story, that's for damn sure (and I mean that in the best way possible).

Nora is one of the most engaging characters I've ever read. She's so real, I kind of want her to come off the page so I can kneel at her feet and let her pet me. And so beautifully damaged -- my favorite kind of character.

Everyone in this book is running from their personal demons. Zach most of all, perhaps, though his are much easier to vanquish than some of the others.

As I suspected, I fell head over heels in love with Soren, even though he scares the crap out of me. Still...such a compelling man.

I loved this book. With one fell swoop, Tiffany Reisz became one of my MUST READ authors.

Well played, ma'am, well played.

4.0 out of 5 stars Romance is sex plus love. Erotica is sex plus fear August 6, 2012
Format:Paperback
The problem with this book is that it's well written. Ms. Reisz has created a multifaceted like-able character in Nora. Like me, she can be snarky and sarcastic, but also be soft as a marshmallow. For her public persona she always wears red, but at home she's usually in PJs, so far I am in!
Unlike a traditional Romance there is not one clear "Hero", in The Siren there are three potential men (and one boy, but I'm staying away from that.) This is not a Romance Novel.
Bachelor #1 is her former Dom (Dominant) Soren. He too has conflicting public and private personas.
Bachelor #2 is her new editor Zachary. He is separated from his wife and initially not interested in being Nora's editor.
Bachelor #3 is Wesley. He lives with Nora. I think of him as Nora's moral compass, her heart. He's also younger and a virgin. He was my favorite.

Each man is right and wrong for her on many levels.

Just like this book was right and wrong for me on so many levels.
I enjoyed most of the characters, I enjoyed the witty, snarky, funny banter. I enjoyed Ms. Reisz writing. The book was not dripping with sex on every page, but Nora does get quite a lot of action.

This is the first BDSM Erotica I have read, it differs greatly from the Erotica Novellas I have read before. As I mentioned, it was well written, Ms. Reisz has a gift with words. She has crafted a story and created characters that anyone could become obsessed with. Unfortunately, to use the words of our main character, Nora, I'm just too vanilla. I was uncomfortable with much of the BDSM scenes and stories included, sure anyone with a healthy sex life is up for a little adventure, but it was too much for me.

Every other review I have read sings the praises of this book, and it's true, Ms.

More About the Author

Tiffany Reisz lives in Lexington, Kentucky with her boyfriend and two cats (one that may or may not be the Anti-Christ). 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 erotica under her real name.

Tiffany has six 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. There is little to nothing interesting about her.

If she couldn't write, she would die.
