“Talent, along with Reisz’s fearlessness to write about anything, is what makes these books so edgy and different. They are definitely worth your while.”
~ Under the Covers

We know her as Mistress Nora but THE QUEEN gives readers the in depth version of how they got there. While the White Years is technically what happens before the first set of books, I always tell readers to read this at the end because there are so many different layers to these characters, it’s almost easier to “meet” Nora first and then get to know her as Elle after.

What’s great about this series is that Reisz has a lot of material to work from. I don’t know if she already had these backstories in her mind when she started writing the first books, but these don’t just feel like added layers to an already solid series; they dig deeper, cutting into the heart of the matter of these characters. If you thought you knew them before, you get to know them more in these books.

THE QUEEN essentially picks up where Elle returns from the convent and this is when King gives her a job of a lifetime. He will train her and make her in the most powerful, most influential Mistress that anyone has ever come across. Problem is, Elle is a submissive and doesn’t know if she is capable of topping like King wants her to. There’s the added competition in Milady who has quickly risen to the top in the underworld and Elle must now outman her.

A lot of my favorite characters make an appearance. Of course this was expected though because I don’t think a series like this would work unless we had everyone together in one way or the other. What’s interesting about this series is that while there’s a lot of sharing in these novels, each scene has its intimate moments. And I think that’s what makes these books so compelling. It’s not just sex scene after sex scene. And Reisz’s writing helps with that too. Eloquent and free-flowing, these books are honestly some of the best written ones I’ve come across in a long time. Talent, along with Reisz’s fearlessness to write about anything, is what makes these books so edgy and different. They are definitely worth your while.

About Tiffany Reisz

Tiffany Reisz lives in Lexington, Kentucky with her boyfriend (a reformed book reviewer) and two cats (one good, one evil). 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 BDSM erotica under her real name.

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. Her first full-length novel THE SIREN was inspired by a desire to tie up actor Jason Isaacs (on paper). She hopes someday life will imitate art (in bed).

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
