Romance Book Casting Call with Tiffany Reisz

Today I would like to welcome to the Casting Call Tiffany Reisz. Tiffany writes some seriously racy books that are so good. They are a definite must pick up but beware of reading them in public.

Tiffany Reisz lives in Lexington, Kentucky with her boyfriend (a reformed book reviewer) and two cats (one good, one evil). She graduated with a B.A. in English from Centre College in Danville, Kentucky and is making both her parents and her professors proud by writing BDSM erotica under her real name. She has five piercings, one tattoo, and has been arrested twice.

When not under arrest, Tiffany enjoys Latin Dance, Latin Men, and Latin Verbs. She dropped out of a conservative southern seminary in order to pursue her dream of becoming a smut peddler. Johnny Depp’s aunt was her fourth grade teacher. Her first full-length novel THE SIREN was inspired by a desire to tie up actor Jason Isaacs (on paper). She hopes someday life will imitate art (in bed).

A Priest, A Rabbi, and a Griffin Walk Into an S&M Club…

Writing a book is a colossal undertaking. Years often go into the writing of a book, the editing, the revising, the proofreading…it is not unlike giving birth to a child. And like childbirth, the origin of a book often begins with sex.

Or in my case, the urge to have sex with actor Jason Isaacs.

Years ago, whilst languishing in a conservative southern Seminary, I played the diligent M.A. in Theology candidate by day while at night I feverishly scribbled dark erotic fantasies in an effort to keep my sanity intact. The star of the these dark fantasies was actor Jason Isaacs, known best for his villainous roles of Colonel Tavington (The Patriot), Lucius Malfoy (The Harry Potter series), and Captain Hook (Peter Pan). And the fantasy about seeing shirtless, blindfolded, and with his hands tied behind his back became the single image that eventually gave birth to the entire ORIGINAL SINNERS octology.

He’s a beautiful man, Jason Isaacs. Even the smartest, most together women have been known to turn to puddles of goo upon meeting him. A forum friend and her husband got the chance to shake his hand at a movie premier once. Jason, ever the flirt, hugged the lady. When her husband said, “I’ll have you know that’s my wife you’ve got your arm around,” Jason replied, “I assure you, it’s entirely sexual.”

How can I not love such a man? And by “love” I mean “if he came in a cup, I would drink it.”

My unshakeable obsession with the blue-eyed Brit inspired me to write a book that would hopefully do proper homage to Mr. Isaacs. I wanted my male lead to be like Jason, the real Jason, the British, Jewish, charmer, who uses his intelligence and wit to disarm. Zachary Easton, my beautiful broken book editor was born. For Jason Isaacs, my muse, I wrote THE SIREN (book one of The Original Sinners) and dedicated it to him.

Can you blame me?

Oh, and this was the moment when he became the Sexiest Man Alive to me…

Oh, and if you want to know what the title of this blog post has to do with THE SIREN, you’ll just have to read it and find out.

THE SIREN, coming May 1 in eBook and July 31st in paperback.

Buy now. Read later.

The Siren is a modern-day retelling of My Fair Lady with uptight English literary fiction editor Zachary Easton as an unwilling Professor Higgins and well-known wild child Nora Sutherlin as his erotica-writing Eliza Doolittle. Zach only has six weeks left at Royal House New York before he heads to Los Angeles to take over as Chief Managing Editor at Royal West. When his boss orders him to help Nora Sutherlin rewrite her latest novel, Zach agrees to work with her only if he is given complete control over the fate of her book. If Nora doesn’t rewrite it to his satisfaction in six weeks, Royal won’t publish it.

Zach calls Nora a “guttersnipe writer” but she’s not your typical guttersnipe. Her personal life is as torrid as her prose and unbeknownst to Zach, her books aren’t her only source of income. Nora is determined to prove Zach wrong, to prove she’s a real writer worthy of his respect. But her good intentions are complicated by her volatile relationship with her virginal nineteen-year-old roommate Wesley and her inability to completely leave her dangerous former lover Søren in the past. Desperate to win Zach’s good opinion of her, Nora keeps her “other job” a secret from him fearing that if he finds out she’s the Underground’s most famous dominatrix he won’t be able to see her as anything other than a sex worker.

The clock is ticking. Nora has six weeks and five hundred pages to rewrite. Will she be able to keep her focus and prove she’s a professional writer? Or will she pick the business of pleasure over the business of writing? As the work on her book progresses, Zach and Nora forge a tenuous truce that turns into friendship and intense attraction. Still grieving his broken marriage, Zach is slow to trust Nora. When he discovers the secrets she’s been keeping from him, will Zach be able to forgive her and sign her contract? Or will he send her back to the gutter where he found her?

  1. Super excited and can't wait for this book! I'm loving everything to do with Tiffany's wonderful world that she's created. Jason Issacs is definitely smex! Lot's of it.

    Thanks for the awesome post!

  2. I've never really looked at Jason Isaacs before, but he definitely has my attention now:) Great pick!

  3. Hmmm, never thought of Jason Isaacs as sexy. But the image of him blindfolded, shirtless with hands ties behind his back....oh wait I just put someone else in his place..but I love that look ; ) hehehe

  4. I can't say that I've ever really thought about Jason Isaacs before, except him being Malfoy's dad. Now that I look at him, without his shirt of course, he's not so bad. Can't wait to read The Siren. Thanks for the giveaway.

  5. I think Gerald Butler is the sexiest man alive ;) But don't tell my hubby...

  6. Jason looks good in the photos.. totally looking forward to reading it!

  7. LOVE your casting :) Jason Isaac is soooo yummy... but he plays mainly bad guys! Oh well... I'll still take him.

  8. Think Jason Isaac is great! I think the sexiest man alive is David Beckham!

  9. I've never really thought of Jason Isaac before, but I can see the appeal. :) Definitely a good casting choice for this book!

    I think I'll have to agree with savannah a few comments back---Gerald Butler has my vote for sexiest man! :)

  10. I always thought of Jason as Draco dad never as sexy, but the bathtub pix changed that. I think Sam Elliot is still sexy

  11. What do you think of Jason Issacs? He does look Yummy.

    Who is your choice for Sexiest Man Alive? I would have to go with Hugh Jackman (Woverine-XMen)

  12. Jason Isaacs is okay. Sexiest Man Alive for me would be Lenny Kravitz

  13. I worship at the feet of Mistress Tiffany. If you don't follow her on twitter you are missing out.

    Jason is a great choice. Sexy man ever? That's a tough one...Cary Grant, Harrison Ford or Kevin Costner.


  14. I love them dont change a one.

  15. What an original casting choice! Definitely a dark horse!

    Thanks for sharing!

  16. I think Jason Isaacs is utterly shaggable. But we knew that already ;)

  17. I completely agree with your choice of Jason Isaacs. I have loved seeing him weekly in Awake. There is nothing wrong with the man and I think he gets overlooked sometimes.

  18. He is a looker but I like the looks of Hugh Jackman for sexiest man alive!
    Thank you for a great blog and giveaway!

  19. I do like him but I have to agree with Phoenix that Hugh Jackman would probably get my vote for sexiest man. However, there are just so many sexy men out there that I can't pick just one to lust after, lol.

  20. I adore the original My Fair Lady so I would be very interested in this modern day telling. I will have to trust you on your cast choice as I have not read the book yet.

  21. I never really paid attention to Jason Isaacs. Sure looks good. I'm also in agreement with Hugh Jackman. :)

  22. Jason Isaacs is a good choice.

  23. I like your choice. My current Sexiest Man Alive is Niall Matter. He plays Zane on the tv show Eureka. Yummy, yummy, yummy.
