Two worlds of wealth and passion call to Nora Sutherlin and, whichever one she chooses, it will be the hardest decision she will ever have to make. Unless someone makes it for her....
Wes Railey is the object of Nora's tamest yet most maddening fantasies, and the one man she can't forget. He's young. He's wonderful. He's also thoroughbred royalty and, reuniting with him in Kentucky, she's in his world now. But this infamous New York dominatrix is no simpering Southern belle, and Nora's dream of fitting into Wesley's world is perpetually at odds with the relentlessly seductive pull of Søren - her owner, her lover, the forever she cannot have. At least, not completely.
Meanwhile Nora's associate Kingsley Edge is only too happy to take her place at Søren's feet during her hiatus. Søren is the only man Kingsley has ever loved, and their dark, shared history has forged a bond that neither the years - nor Søren's love for Nora - can break. But a new threat from an old adversary is forcing Kingsley to confront the past, reminding him that he must keep his friends close, and his enemies closer.

All of the books in this series are enjoyable. More romance than erotica, the characters talk about sex a lot more than have it. But they are interesting and well-developed. Well worth the price or credit.
I ignore genre labels. Some of my favorite books are outside my genre comfort zone. Listening to audiobooks is still reading. Not theater.
Usually when a plot line is as over the top as this series by Tiffany Reisz, it is difficult to get your emotions committed. It may an entertaining or enjoyable read, but when characters are so far out of my definition of "believable" it is hard to empathize with them.
I can't imagine living the life of these characters. Maybe there are people out there that are this far out (and not just in their own imagination). But I found I could still relate to them. The emotions and angst that drove the behavior and actions of the characters was totally understandable, even if the characters themselves were not. That seems like a good definition of good character development.
The third book in the series delves much more into the history of Kingsley and Soren and they are both tragic characters on the scale of a Wagner opera. I might not believe these two characters could exist in the real world, but I kind of wish they did, and if they did, I would like to know them. It also spent more time on Wes, who to me is the weakest and least interesting of the group. He doesn't seem interesting enough to ever catch Nora's attention. But that is just a little quibble.
Her books aren't for the faint hearted or the squeamish, but Ms Reisz is a great story teller. She has a unique style that I thoroughly enjoy.
I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and/or listening to mostly paranormal and fantasy.
I love this series. This story is terrific, though it has a HUGE cliffhanger at the end.
I'm not a huge fan of this narrator. She doesn't do a very good job at Soren's voice and he has a very large part in this book. The other voices are okay, but his really turned me off this narrator.
Still exceptional book.
The Prince has three story lines, past and present Soren & Kingsley, and Nora & Wesley in Kentucky. This book is a MUST read to anyone who has read the first two in the series.
The story was/is awesome. This was the first time I've ever read anything by this author but I will tell you I loved it. The story is original and passionate and funny but I hate the narrator in the audio books. Wesley is from Kentucky and they attempt a southern accent that turns around and make him sound down right stupid. I stopped listening to the book and instead opt to read the book instead for that very reason.
Nora running after Soren asked her not to.The delivery of the baby.The beating of the baby and Nora's response
I hate, hate, hate the accent given to Wesley. Wesley is educated and intelligent but the narrator make him sound like a poor country bumpkin. Narrator should have done her research on how educated southerns really sound before attempting to imitate.
I loved the book and would recommend it to any and everyone. It is much much better than Gabriel Inferno and I like it more than Bared To You. I would just suggest reading the book instead of listening to it.
This book is original. I find that many of the other erotica books have tried to take on a 50 Shades of Gray type of story line but not the Original Sinners Series. You have the rich, powerful, good looking and educated - yes but then you have so much more. And please note, this book is erotica but not overly so. It has a very strong story and can stand alone with out the sex. Sex is the icing the story is the cake.
Make no mistake between my personality and my attitude. My personality is who I am, my attitude depends on who you are.........
I cannot believe that this book ended like this!!! I kept thinking that I had another part to download, but NOOOOOOOOO!!!
This book took on the darker edge as the first. The narrator was extremely good, however, I still loved the narrator of The Siren and really wish he was the one for all of them.
I really didn't expect this book to take on a "mystery" story line which was a new twist, however, I truly must have something wrong with me for I am still in love with Soren.
I would definitely read The Prince again but unless another narrator is found I wouldn't listen to it. Until Wesley's southern accent came about I was convinced my iPhone had Siri reading the book to me. Robin Rowan sounds like she has a computer generated voice and it's extremely irritating. I couldn't bring myself to finish the book. The tone is monotonous and everyone except Wesley has the same voice. She missed Kingsley's French accent and Soren's English accent. Half the time I couldn't tell who was talking to who. How on earth could Tiffany Reisz allow Robin to destroy her incredible book?!
It's difficult to compare this book to another. It seems you can either get an excellent plot or steamy sex scenes but never both. I've never seen a writer excel at both like Tiffany does. I guess you could compare her story telling skills to those of Diana Gabaldon's (although I think Diana is still superior) and the sex appeal to Sylvia Day.
See above...I didn't like a single thing. I can't believe she's been in the business for 30 years.
I would have to say when Soren and Kingsley were cleaning the old cottage. I thought it was cute when Soren asked him to catch and release the wolf spiders instead of killing them.
Buy the hard copy of this book, don't bother with the audio format. Unless of course you like monotony, zero inflection and the bastardization of the French language.
This is hands down the best book in the series so far. Can't wait to hear the next, and last of the red years quartet, book in the series. Unfortunately I'm not sure I can, because the narrator of that one sounds unbearable!
Before the praise let me get the pain out of the way. Every book in this red years have a different narrator. For the love of all things holy, stick to the same narrator. This series is too good not to deserve that, and on top of that Robin Rowan is the worst one yet. Not saying she's a bad narrator, and the next one is even worse! just that I felt Lilly Rhodes captured the world and characters better. Haven't heard the white year's narrator yet, but please bring her in to narrate the red years too to bring some much needed consistency. Having a new narrator for each book is equivalent to watching a TV show where all the characters are recast every season.
Now for the praise.
The story is so captivating and thrilling it got my heart almost bursting with excitement at some moments, and literally brought tears to my eyes in a couple others.
This book gives you the backstory if Kingsley and Søren and continues the present day story. Some chapters are in the past and some in the present.
If you enjoyed the first two you will love this one, though I highly recommend buying the 4th book right away as this one ends in a major cliffhanger, and I can bearly even wait long enough to write this review before I start on the next one.
Tiffany is my favorite author, you just cannot go wrong with her writing, her story line or her characters. Someone please lock her away to write more and more and more, because I can't get enough.
The Prince is the third installment in Tiffany Reisz's dark erotica series titled: Original Sinners. Lots of character and relationship background is provided in this installment with some heartfelt present-day chapters. Oh, and there's a mini-mystery thrown in! This was a great addition to a series that has me head over heels. Love it ♥
Nora and Wesley?
Søren and Kingsley?
My favorite quote:
"Nobody's shirt ever gets stuck in their pants. And nobody has to worry about their damn parents walking in on them. And you never have the guy raising his head and saying, 'Um, I think you're getting a yeast infection.' Wesley almost collapsed with a mix of disgust and laughter. 'What? You're telling me romance novels and erotica novels aren't one hundred percent realistic with the sex scenes? I'm shocked."
