Publisher's Summary

There's punishment - and then there's vengeance.
Nora Sutherlin is in handcuffs, held captive by two men. Under different circumstances, she would enjoy the situation immensely, but her captors aren'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 Soren, 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....

Better than expected!

Tiffany Reisz's storytelling abilities are extraordinary. It takes a talented author to take a reader completely out of their comfort zone, yet keep the same reader compelled not to want to put it in down. I’m not always comfortable with everything I read in this series. I do keep an open mind and I am captivated enough by the story to keep reading. Not only was the story captivating, but I was invested in these characters. Having read a few of these books I thought that I knew the characters well enough. Nope. Not a chance. Ms. Reisz continues to surprise me as I learn more and more about each character and the world they live in. This book is hard to review without spoiling big parts so I apologize its vague. Only con: narrator's voice seemed a bit young but still did a decent job.

Terrible Narrator

What made the experience of listening to The Mistress the most enjoyable?

I LOVE Tiffany Reisz's books. She's an excellent story teller and her characters are complex, but fun to follow.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

This narrator was horrid. She confused her French and English accents so that certain characters were incomprehensible (particularly the editor's wife, who is supposed to be British but ended up sounding like characature of a Transylvanian vampire).

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Loved the book itself.

Any additional comments?

Come on audible, either get narrators who can do accents well or have the narrators skip the accent entirely. You're ruining great books this way.
