Three Sinners. Three confessions. And all the dirty little secrets you could possibly desire...
Father Stuart Ballard has been Marcus Stearns’ confessor since the young Jesuit was only eighteen years old. He thought he’d heard every sin the boy had to confess until Marcus uttered those three fateful words: “I met Eleanor.”
So begins the 40-page “The Confession of Marcus Stearns,” a moving coda to the RITA® Award-winning Original Sinnersseries. Originally published as a limited-edition paperback for the 2014 RT Booklovers' Convention, and available worldwide for the first time.
This collection also includes “The Confession of Eleanor Schreiber,” a companion 36-page story written exclusively for The Confessions.
And, finally, all secrets are revealed in “The Confession of Tiffany Reisz,” an exclusive, in-depth interview.

Book Review: 5 Millions Stars
I can’t express enough how much I love this novella! Both confessions, Soren’s and Nora’s, were so much needed for the entire series. They gave another perspective about the depth of their feelings, desires, fears about the dynamic in their relationship with each other, as well as with King and Nico. Both confessions were simply perfect.
Before I ever talk about the confessions, I need to say that Father Stuart Ballard was the coolest priest ever. He has been Soren’s confessor since he was in seminary, Ballard was called to the priesthood when he was a teenager, but he didn’t get ordered as a priest until he was 30. Due to his history, he was in love with a beautiful woman before he was ordered, he is often the confessor of priests with this kind of “troubles”, hence, he is Soren’s confessor. It was pretty awesome to read his dynamic with Soren, or Marcus as he called him, because he never got used to called Soren by his real name. Father Stuart wasn’t afraid of Soren, like most people were, instead he teased him a lot. I loved to read Father Stuart’s memories about them playing rock songs—YES! Soren played rock songs in the piano, believe it or not. But what I really loved the most about Father Stuart was that he was a good father figure for Soren. It was good to know Soren had someone enough open minded to talk about all his feelings, fears and desires, and even better that he accepted what Stuart said in return. Father Ballard wasn’t a listen-and-nod kind of confessor, he always had a say about everything, and Soren accepted his words with his heart open.
“Something tells me that loving your Eleanor will be penance enough.”
Soren’s confession takes place during the timeline of The Saint, while Nora’s confession takes place between The King and The Virgin. I will not give so many details about both confessions, because people should live them completely, but I can only say I cried like a baby for hours. I was sitting cross legged on the floor, trying my best not to mess the book with my tears. They were falling uncontrollably! And then I was laughing my ass off with Nora’s confession, until the hard part arrived. I can’t decide which confession I love the most, because both were so perfect, Soren’s had one of the statement that knocked my ass off, and Nora’s had two or three that left me speechless.
“Past and present, black and white, north and south, sinner and savior, all united in worship.”
If you are already a fan of the series, you know how important is for you to read this novella, so GO READ IT! It’s Soren’s orders—or Nora’s if you prefer the mistress on charge. If you haven’t read the series, please start from the beginning.
BTW, Tiffany confessed all her sins in this book too! 😀 Her interview was awesome to read.
Father Stuart Ballard had a very awesome taste in music!
