Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author Tiffany Reisz returns with an imaginative tale of lust and magic and the dangers unleashed when the two are combined....

On the day of Lia’s university graduation party, her parents - wealthy art collectors with friends in high places - gift her a beautiful wine cup, a rare artifact decorated with roses. It’s a stunning gift, and one that August Bowman, a friend of her parents and a guest at Lia’s party, also has his eye on. The cup, August tells her, is known as the Rose Kylix, and it’s no ordinary cup. It was used in the temple ceremonies of Eros, Greek god of erotic love, and has the power to bring the most intimate sexual fantasies to life.

But Lia is skeptical of August’s claims of the cup’s mythology and magic - after all, he’s a collector himself, and she suspects he just wants to get his hands on this impressive piece of art. So he dares her to try it for herself, and when Lia drinks from the Rose Kylix she is suddenly immersed in an erotic myth so vivid it seems real - as though she’s living out the most sensual fantasy with August by her side....

Realizing the true power of this ancient and dangerous relic, Lia is even more wary of giving it up, though August insists it is only safe with him. He’s willing to pay the full value of the cup, but Lia has another type of trade in mind. One that finds them more tangled up in each other - and in fantasy - than either was prepared for.

So unique and good!! Loved this book!!

I read and listen to a lot of romance books and I thought the idea was very unique. The summary might not catch you but I promise that if you give it a try, I think you'll love it. I didn't want it to end. I loved it and wished it could have been even longer.

Not quite like The Red...

I love the first book called The Red...this was the second book and I felt there is a disconnect from the first..nice play on the gods and goddesses on Greek mythology...but not as deep pull as the first

Don't Waste Your Time

I am a big fan of Tiffany Reisz. I loved the Burbon Theif and The Red, so I decided to give this a try. I did not like the story or the narration. I only finished listening to it, because I did not want to waste a credit. The dialogue is horrible, a lot of "he said" "she said" after every line.

Very sexy but very different from her other books

When I saw a book by Tiffany Reisz I didn’t have it was quickly a one click for me even though it isn’t part of her Original Sinners series. It is very sexy, very hot - have your vibrator ready for some scenes type. The only detractor personally is that it isn’t connected to her Original Sinners series which I’m always looking for the next book there. If you haven’t tried that series go! Get it if you’re not scared of the topics.
