Griffin has just popped the question—yes, that question—and Michael doesn’t have an answer. He flees town for New Orleans to see his confidante and sometime-Domme, Mistress Nora. Will a weekend of beignets and beatings help him untangle his knotted-up heart?
Thus begins Michael's Wings, the eponymous novella that kicks off the latest entry in Tiffany Reisz's LAMBDA Literary Award-winning* Original Sinners series.
This companion collection to fan-favorite The Angel also contains six previously-published stories starring Mistress Nora's favorite angel and Griffin—his master, his true love, and the sexy-as-hell bane of Michael's existence.

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.
Prepare yourself for a wonderful collection of short stories from Michael and Griff with a cameo or two from Nora. Within the collection there were stories that melted my heart, others that made me smile and one or two that were rather hot and steamy!
I rather enjoy the idea of having something quick to devour so my preference for reading collections is to do so in between other books. This meant I have been reading Michael’s Wings a lot longer than I would normally read a book of this length. Michael’s Wings had the added bonus of a lover of the Original Sinners series revisiting a much loved couple.
Brace yourself for the beautiful mother and Griff moment in one of the stories. Considering Griff’s wild ways, his adoration for Michael has tamed him to the point of being able to put a mother’s worries at bay. Griff’s insistence of playing cupid for Michael’s mother was sweet and thoughtful but I got the impression it would be taking matters a tad too far for Michael!
While I don’t seek out MM romances, I don’t have a problem reading them. They can be some of the most smoldering hot reads out there but they are intense. There was one particular steamy story included that I found I didn’t enjoy because my escape comes through the plot, with the steamy scenes being a nice addition to the drama.
I loved that the relationship issues Michael and Griff encountered transcended MM relationships. The struggles they faced and their approach to overcoming their minor battles had a resounding universal appeal. Soren illustrated this succinctly with his homily that touched the heart of a non-believer.
The moment Griff brings his past, present and future together in his priceless Christmas Gift to Michael was on par with his attempts to impress a mother. By the time you reach the final story, you will be left with no doubt of the love this couple share. Reading about Griff’s charming ways was just the icing on the cake!
