The Red marks international bestseller Tiffany Reisz’s return to the erotica shelves. Originally published as a limited edition hardcover for attendees of Shameless Book Con 2016, The Red—an erotic fantasy in the vein of Anne Rice’s Sleeping Beauty quartet—will finally being be available to the public this summer.

 The Red is the naughtiest, most explicit, sexually decadent book I’ve ever written,” Reisz says. “If you’ve read my other books, you know that’s saying something.”

The heroine, Mona Lisa St. James, makes a deathbed promise that she will do anything to save her mother’s art gallery, The Red. Just as she realizes she has no choice but to sell it, a handsome stranger makes her an offer: He will save The Red if she submits to him for the period of one year.

Reisz adds: “For years readers have been asking me to write The Red, a novel mentioned in the Original Sinners series written by my erotica-writing dominatrix Nora Sutherlin. Well, readers, be careful what you wish for.”

Mona Lisa St. James made a deathbed promise that she would do anything to save her mother’s art gallery, The Red. Just as she realizes she has no choice but to sell it, a handsome stranger makes her an offer: He will save The Red if she submits to him for the period of one year. Surely her mother didn’t mean for Mona to sell herself. Then again, she did promise to do anything to save The Red…


Mona Lisa St. James’ story is the epitome of erotic fantasy; it’s a novella that allows readers to suspend reality and delve into an environment that has elements of pain and pleasure and beauty and truth as well as acts of savagery and chivalry.

It’s a fitting world from the mind of Tiffany Reisz because it’s wickedly delicious and speaks to the nature of true sexual wantonness and only Reisz can write a story where there is a perverse enjoyment to be used like a whore, submitting and succumbing to a being who is both a man and the devil at the same time. And even though Mona questions her sanity, she is neither embarrassed nor ashamed because she’s fulfilling the promise to her dying mother and experiencing sexual pleasure that a fine lady like herself would never experience in her ‘real world’ because it’s meant to only exist in Malcolm’s self-created one – a place where she offers him carte blanche when it comes to the use of her body for his pleasure and wiles…a place where her wantonness and arousal is heightened and the idea of her body being bought for Malcolm’s personal use in any way he sees fit is not only acceptable but desired and ultimately needed.

The Red is an art studio that has limitless possibilities after Mona agrees to Malcolm’s unorthodox deal and as The Red becomes a sexual haven for this makeshift couple, it also proves to be an avenue where the “reality” of the backroom becomes a sanctuary to imitate works of art in all ways of debauchery, illustrating that Malcolm’s degenerate games have a bigger purpose than the one originally intended because once the true nature of who Malcolm is and the reasons behind his need to help to save Mona’s art studio are revealed, his games become a series of puzzle pieces that Mona has to put together and realize their true intent.

Mona and Malcolm are dynamic characters whose true natures are exposed and explored as their story continues and by the time readers reach the conclusion of The Red, they will understand what the endgame is for both characters and how what occurs has been set in motion much earlier than anyone would have recognized.

The Red showcases Reisz’s ability to transport her readers into a sexually charged fantastical setting – one where the taboo idea of being someone’s sexual slave…someone’s property is glorified instead of treated as a reprehensible idea. And as each piece of art is played out in all of its sinfully tantalizing glory, the fantasy becomes one perhaps readers would willingly submit to as well.
