Mona Lisa St. James made a deathbed promise that she would do anything to save her mother's art gallery. Unfortunately, not only is The Red painted red, but it's in the red. She soon realizes she has no choice but to sell it.
Just as she realizes she has no choice but to sell it, a mysterious man comes in after closing time and makes her an offer: He will save The Red if she agrees to submit to him for the period of one year.
The man is handsome, English, and terribly tempting...but surely her mother didn't mean for Mona to sell herself to a stranger. Then again, she did promise to do anything to save The Red...
The Red is a standalone novel of erotic fantasy from Tiffany Reisz, international bestselling author of The Bourbon Thief and the Original Sinners series.

I’m seriously torn on my rating for this book. I’ve been back and forth since reading it and I’m still on the fence on where to put it. I truly enjoy Tiffany’s writing. I think she has real talent and her stories always stick with you. This book though, it need a bit more for me to really love it. The sex scenes where off the charts hot. Some of the best I’ve read in a while actually. The story line was original and captivating. My issues lie with what was in between there. I needed just a bit more story besides all of the sex scenes. I think that would have taken this from a 3.5 to a 4.5. She can really write some good erotica and I know she can write a good story, I’ve read her other stuff. If they were put together it would be epic. This was a bit to rushed and I would have liked some more back story or even a side story to make the book more whole. Besides all this I really think you should give this one a go. Have a glass of wine and a fan next to you help make it through though. LOL

“Am I your captive?”
“You are tonight.”
“Can you keep me forever?”
“I wish I could.”
