Author Tiffany Reisz returns to the world of The Red with an imaginative sequel full 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.


5 iScream Cones

“You will hear colors and smell sounds.”

I can’t even tell you what this story is about, but I loved it. Tiffany Reisz is a favorite author and I will follow her wherever she leads, even outside the genres I usually read. Why not a little mythology and magic, right? Especially when love and lust are involved.

I found this story to be very intriguing and I was wishing that I’d paid more attention to mythology and memorized some Greek god facts. It’s not necessary to enjoy this story, but I probably would have had a better visual in my mind. No worries, I had no trouble with the sexy side of things. It might have a different name, but it works the same.

The history of the Rose kylix was also very interesting and its powers both dangerous and priceless. I could definitely see how much something like that would be worth to a collector. And this particular collector, “She wanted to touch every inch of him and she knew exactly which inch she wanted to start with…”

What an amazing journey the author took me on. Her mind is a wonderful thing and I’m so thrilled that she shares it with her readers. I can’t even imagine what she has in store for us next, but I’ll be right there ready and waiting. The line forms here…
