Book Review: The Virgin

The Virgin (The Original Sinners: White Years #3)
by Tiffany Reisz

The controversial story before the story continues in the critically acclaimed and award-winning series The Original Sinners.

For years, Kingsley Edge warned Eleanor the day would come when she, the mistress of a well-respected Catholic priest, would have to run and hide. She always imagined if that day came she'd be running away with Søren. But instead, she's running from him.

Knowing Søren and Kingsley will their use their influence to bring her back, Eleanor alone, penniless and scared takes refuge at the one place the men in her life cannot follow: the abbey where her mother has taken orders. Behind the cloistered gates of the convent, Eleanor hides from the man she loves and hates in equal measure

She cannot, however, hide from her true nature. When Eleanor befriends a young virginal nun, she faces a startling sexual awakening. But Eleanor can't stay forever, and the lure of her real life beckons beyond the locked gates. But to follow her fate means to leave Kyrie behind, a sacrifice Eleanor refuses to make

The lure of the forbidden. The temptation to sin. The price of passion has never been higher, and Eleanor will have to pay it if she ever wants to go home again.

Sitting down to re-open my heart and mind to a story about The Originals Sinners is one of my favorite reading experiences. It's so easy to get lost in the brilliant world of Soren, Kingsley, and Nora created by Tiffany Reisz. I look forward to new Sinners stories because, as my 5 star rating suggests, there is always a hidden door to open filled with more stories making me fall in love with them deeper.

The Virgin reveals a deeper look into "THAT year" in the lives of these three dynamic characters. The year before their Kingdom flourished. The year marking the end of what they were and the start of who they've become and more importantly the deep and strong ties connecting Soren, King, and Nora to each other forever. Forever fans of the series will love this narrative and storyline.

In the Red Years, Soren stole my heart, as he did in The Saint as well. But in The King and now this latest installment the love has shifted a bit to the formidable Kingsley. My eyes have been opened to the heart and soul of this man who lays himself on the line constantly for the sake of the happiness of those he loves. He understands people as much as he craves them. Once Kingsley deems you important to him, nothing else matters but your happiness and protection.

Soren, Kingsley, and Nora sit down together at the beginning of The Virgin for a slumber of the most sordid variety reminiscing of a time in their lives that was somber at best for them all when it began yet became hopeful. They've never talked about this time of their lives to each other or so openly to their audience of readers. I loved every minute of relieving the heartache and beauty with them. Nora and Kingsley can tell me a bedtime story every so often for the rest of time and I don't think I'd tire of reading as there is still so much to discover about their motivations, emotions, and actions. There’s one special Nora birthday scene remembered by Kingsley here too that is a can’t miss for fans of the series.

Tiffany Reisz always does a stellar job of drawing me into the story with her special brand of wit, comedy, and drama woven together within rich character histories and detailed depictions. There's never a dull moment in the world of The Original Sinners. I'm looking forward to where she ends the story with The Queen.

I’ve said after each review I’ve done in this series, if you haven’t started this series yet and love erotica do yourself a favor go all way back to the The Siren and meet The Original Sinners.
