Review: A Midwinter Night's Dream (The Original Sinners) by Tiffany Reisz


Print Length: 336 pages
Publisher: 8th Circle Press (December 20, 2018)

From Goodreads.com: USA Today bestseller Tiffany Reisz turns back the clock on her Original Sinners series to the Victorian era in this kinky Christmas romance...

Two days before Christmas 1871, the newly-minted Baron Marcus Stearns returns to London for the reading of his long-estranged and much-despised father's will, fully certain he will inherit nothing but the title. He receives the shock of his life when he learns that he and his sister Lady Claire will only inherit their late father's vast estate if he marries—immediately. 

Kingsley, the Baron's lover and devoted valet, offers a simple solution to a seemingly Herculean task—the Baron should simply marry his beautiful ward Eleanor. Yet while the Baron longs to do just that...he possesses a dangerous secret that threatens to destroy their marriage before it's hardly begun.

My Rating: 5 stars out of 5

Every Christmas, out of the kindness of her heart, Mistress Tiffany releases a free novella to her faithful harem... err readers. This year, the gift came in the form of a wonderfully written Victorian era erotica story featuring everyone's favorite unholy Trinity. 

I will be the first to admit that I will greedily take anything she offers when it comes to Nora, Kingsley and of course Søren. Whenever I read about them, it is like coming home. I never tire of them or their kinky ways. However, when it comes to the stories themselves there is always a deeper message than just the sex that goes on. I think the message of this story can be perfectly summed up in this paraphrased passage: 

"What matters more? The ceremony and saying the vows? Or living them when it counts?"

The love these three have and share with each other is what makes these stories truly come alive. Even when they are insulting each other, you know they would gladly lay down their own life for the others. Its a beautiful love story, even if its told in the most unconventional way. 

Let me close by saying that I do wish this had been a full length story. Reading a Victorian Era erotica was a special treat for me as I am also a fan of historical romance novels. The fact that is featured my three favorite characters of all time was just the icing on the cake.
