Return to USA Today bestseller Tiffany Reisz's Original Sinners series with Winter Tales, a collection of three fan-favorite Christmas novellas plus a brand-new novella exclusive to this anthology.
In December Wine, the long-awaited story of Nora Sutherlin's first meeting with Nico can finally be told. Nora enlists her editor (and sometimes lover) Zach Easton on a mission to track down Kingsley's long-lost son. Nicolas "Nico" Delacroix turns out to be young, strikingly handsome, and very French. He wants nothing to do with his father...but everything to do with Nora.
This special holiday-themed collection also includes the novellas Poinsettia, The Christmas Truce, and The Scent of Winter (previously available only as ebooks). A bonus short story starring Søren rounds out the Winter Tales anthology.

?? Robbie’s Review ??
What could be better than being introduced to a new friend you love in the company of old friends you love? Mark the date because on November 19, author Tiffany Reisz is going to introduce you to that new friend in Winter Tales. Billed as an Original Sinners Christmas Anthology, these stories are soul food for lovers of the Original Sinners series and its characters.
Once upon a time, I wrote that Tiffany Reisz’s books often ask more questions than they answer. In December Wine, the new friend in the grouping, the question of how Nico reacts when he learns Kingsley is his father is answered. We also experience Nora’s reaction when she sees the man she believes to be the son of her friend and lover. And for anyone who has been curious about what the future might hold for Nora and Zach, that question will be answered as well.
The Christmas Truce takes place on Christmas Eve during the period when Nora and Søren are estranged. Nora and Kingsley are spending the evening reminiscing and wrapping gifts. One thing leads to another and they find themselves making their way to Sacred Heart Church to hear their favorite priest deliver his homily. For that one evening, there is detente between the friends and lovers. Gifts are exchanged, hearts and souls are exchanged, and Nora wonders why every day can’t be Christmas Day.
The third novella, Poinsettia, finds a young Søren spending Christmas Eve with his domme and mentor Magdalena. Gifts are given and received that will touch your heart and Magdalena will read a story that almost breaks her heart. I’ve often marveled at how well Tiffany Reisz goes beneath the surface of her characters and their lifestyles to make them relatable. Poinsettia is a fine example of the way she uses her beautiful words to show us who her Sinners really are.
The Scent of Winter brings Søren and Kingsley together for a magical night – a very special Christmas gift to each other – that is reminiscent of their first night together as lovers. Once more, the author’s imagery and the intimacy between these two characters will be profoundly moving.
Finally, like a little gem among larger precious stones, is Blood and Snow in which we find Søren once more with Magdalena who isn’t just any domme, but a wise woman who can listen to the concerns of another human being and help him find answers. They may not be exactly the ones Søren is hoping for, but they are exactly what we might expect from our author who loves to play mind games. As readers, we can’t wait to find out how both Ms. Reisz and Nora will define revenge!
Winter Tales is a 5 Star gift from author Tiffany Reisz to her readers who love the Original Sinners. If you haven’t read the series, you should start now with The Siren! I can promise you books that are beautifully written with humor, well-developed characters, and deliciously twisty erotica. Christmas will come early as you read!
