Before she became Manhattan's most famous dominatrix, Nora Sutherlin was merely a girl called Eleanor…
Rebellious, green-eyed Eleanor never met a rule she didn't want to break. She's sick of her mother's zealotry and the confines of Catholic school, and declares she'll never go to church again. But her first glimpse of beautiful, magnetic Father Marcus Stearns—Søren to her and only her—and his lust-worthy Italian motorcycle is an epiphany. Eleanor is consumed—yet even she knows being in love with a priest can't be right.
But when one desperate mistake nearly costs Eleanor everything, it is Søren who steps in to save her. When she vows to repay him with complete obedience, a whole world opens before her as he reveals to her his deepest secrets that will change everything.
Danger can be managed—pain, welcomed. Everything is about to begin.

Eleanor always seems to find trouble. As a highly intelligent and rebellious teenager, that’s easy to do in the small town of Wakefield, Connecticut. Her world revolves around school and church as dictated by her devoutly religious mother. But when she meets the new priest at Sacred Heart for the first time, her whole world tilts on its axis.
Søren Magnussen has dedicated his life to God – but inside he still battles some very powerful demons. The beautiful young girl with the inquisitive mind and the smart mouth has captured his heart, but she has no idea of the kind of man that he really is. Being together is forbidden, but Eleanor refuses to be denied. She will wait however long it takes and do whatever he demands to finally belong to him. Can they be each other’s salvation or does their chosen path lead only to damnation?
“Once upon a time,” he began, “there was a beautiful girl named Eleanor who had secrets she wanted to keep. Eleanor had pulled her sleeves down over her hands. She was ashamed of the burns on her wrist and feared someone would see them and judge her for them. Then the time came for this girl to take communion. As she reached for the cup, her sleeve slipped back, and her priest saw what she was.” “What was she?” Eleanor asked. Søren kissed her on the top of her head and whispered. “She was mine.”
I have to confess that The Saint was the first book by Tiffany that I've ever read. What took me so long?!? I was totally enraptured by her lush prose and the intricate way she entwined sexuality and religion. It was both shockingly powerful and beautifully poignant.
The journey was not always pretty but it felt so insanely passionate and true. In the end, Tiffany Reisz has certainly made both a fan and a believer out of me…
