Waiting on Wednesday: The Mistress by Tiffany Reisz

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly book meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine,
spotlighting upcoming releases that we're eagerly anticipating.

Raina's pick this week:

The Mistress (The Original Sinners #4)
Tiffany Reisz
Expected publication: July 30th 2013 by Mira Books
Genre: Erotica, BDSM, Adult Contemporary Fiction

There's punishment—and then there's vengeance.

Nora Sutherlin is being held, bound and naked. Under different circumstances, she would enjoy the situation immensely, but her captor isn't interested in play. Or pity.

As the reality of her impending peril unfolds, Nora becomes Scheherazade, buying each hour of her life with stories-sensual tales of Søren, Kingsley and Wesley, each of whom has tempted and tested and tortured her in his own way. This, Nora realizes, is her life: nothing so simple, so vanilla, as a mere love triangle for her. It's a knot in a silken cord, a tangled mass of longings of the body and the heart and the mind. And it may unravel at any moment.

But in Nora's world, no one is ever truly powerless—a cadre of her friends, protectors and lovers stands ready to do anything to save her, even when the only certainty seems to be sacrifice and heartbreak...

Not exactly a fan of BDSM novels, I started The Original Sinners series with fear and low expectations. But Tiffany Reisz's writing and storytelling, plus the fact she doesn't have the BDSM included for senseless shock value or to make an easy buck, had me devouring the series. It's erotica with substance and intricate plots, easily one of my favorites of the genre. And I just discovered there's a cover, summary, and an actual publication date for book four! I'm shaking from excitement because book three, The Prince, left the worst cliffie known to the book gods. I'm a little scared, too. Have your read that summary?! Yikes!

What book release has you shaking in anticipation?
