Series – Must be read in order (See reading order below)
Books that “ inhabit a sexy shadowy world where romance, erotica and literature meet and do immoral and possibly illegal things to each other. “

The stars in the skies are not enough for this book and series!
‘The world didn’t often reward those who loved outside the lines.’
I want to reach into my chest and rip out the overwhelmed and beating part of my heart that belongs to Søren, Nora and Kingsley. Then I want to fly thousands of miles and personally show it and hand it over to Tiffany Reisz on bended knees for her to understand just how much I truly feel. What an incredible series – what a passionate journey it’s been.
“I need all of you. Your heart, your soul, your strength, your guts. All of you.”
I wish I’d kept my tears in jars from the first one shed to the last – a sobering realisation of how the written word truly affects the mind, soul and heart. The words making small continuous incisions – making me bleed – making me cry. I don’t know if this was the intention but I can only speak for myself and my exhausted yet devastatingly fulfilled heart.
‘When witnessing a miracle, one should never hurry it along, for it’ll be gone all too soon and who knows when one will see another miracle in one’s lifetime?’
And that readers – is how I feel about this series! I’ve never taken so long to read a book before as I did with The Queen. Knowing this is the end frightened me as well as made me incredibly emotional – consequently – I needed to take several pauses; not wanting to rush nor wanting it to end. However – C’est la fin – Så er enden nået.
‘Forever and Everything’
Every time I log on to write a review for a book in this series, I struggle. It’s never been an easy feat to do this series any justice nor adequately convey how intense my emotions run whilst reading about my favourite people in the world. It is what it is – simply put – my favourite series written by an astoundingly brilliant and intelligent Author.
‘Søren was a man of quiet depth, as if he kept a secret second heart locked away in a glass case. It would explain how much he felt and how strongly and yet how rarely such feelings were allowed to escape captivity. ‘
The ranges of emotions run wild in every which direction the characters demand of me – every single time – without fail. My heart has been wholly involved in this journey from the beginning – a journey which must be followed meticulously in the order as intended by its Author.
“I’ll come home, I promise.”
“Please…You take my heart with you.”
“Little One, you are my heart.”
The Queen is yet another master piece where puzzle pieces are revealed with the usual intelligence, wit, sarcasm and passion as its predecessors. These pieces are then nudged into position through evocative and powerful writing making the overall picture complete with the final piece – ultimately rendering me speechless and breathless at its all-encompassing beauty. It’s stunning. It’s commanding. It’s exquisitely haunting. It’s perfection. This series is a masterpiece.
“How much pain do you want?”
“Hurt me until I forget how much I hurt.”
