Bestselling 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.

?Robbie’s Review ?
When you pick up a book by author Tiffany Reisz, you never know where you’re going to go and The Rose is no exception. As always, I’m amazed by the creative genius of this author whose stories run the gamut from laughter to tears, from comedy to erotica, from lovable characters to characters you love to hate. Lia and August are quite a pair! He claims to be a prostitute in the temple of Eros and she is spoiled little rich girl who secretly runs an escort service. Sounds like a couple who could have some really interesting conversations, right? They proceed to do just that, but their conversations involve lots of mythological characters, sips of wine from a cup called the Rose Kylix, and, as you can well imagine, very steamy and inventive sexual activity.
So what did I love most about The Rose? Dabbling in Greek mythology with Lia and August as they sip from the magical Rose Hylix? Yes! Sharing the passion of the gods as these two become active participants in the myths? Yes! Reading the witty and sometimes outrageous banter between the characters? Yes! You know those clever comebacks you and I always think of long after a conversation is over? Ms. Reisz’s characters actually say these things to each other.
Just when I think Ms. Reisz is going to write a book that doesn’t quite do it for me, she does it again. Is it any wonder her new releases are so anticipated by her fans? Seeing the world through her eyes is a new experience every time! At the end of another 5 star review, I’ll rephrase what I’ve said in most of my other reviews . . . what a special gift Tiffany Reisz has to be able to write books we want to reread for the sheer pleasure of reading her words.
Many Thanks to Tiffany Reisz and Mira Books/Harlequin for the Opportunity to Read and Review!
