Once upon a time, Nora and Søren made a fateful deal—if he gave her everything, she would give him forever.

The time has finally come to keep their promises.

Out of money and out of options after her year-long exile, Eleanor Schreiber agrees to join forces with Kingsley Edge, the king of kink. After her first taste of power as a Dominant, Eleanor buries her old submissive self and transforms into Mistress Nora, the Red Queen. With the help of a mysterious young man with a job even more illicit than her own, Nora squares off against a cunning rival in her quest to become the most respected, the most feared Dominatrix in the Underground.

While new lovers and the sweet taste of freedom intoxicate Nora, she is tempted time and time again by Søren, her only love and the one man who refuses to bow to her. But when Søren accepts a new church assignment in a dangerous country, she must make an agonizing choice—will the queen keep her throne and let her lover go, or trade in her crown for Søren's collar?

With a shattering final confession, the last link in the chain is forged in The Original Sinners saga. It's the closing chapter in a story of salvation, sacrifice and the multitude of scars we collect in the name of ecstasy—and love.

The final book in the The Original Sinners series is here. These final four books have told us stories from the past and showed us how each character became so dominating. The Queen begins after the events and stories told in The Virgin.Nora, Kingsley and Søren are together for a wedding, but there’s something else going on. To pass time Nora tells Søren a story of how Eleanor became Mistress Nora, the top dominatrix in New York, and how she almost returned to Søren.

Nora’s rise to the top was just as sizzling and entertaining as I expected. She moved away from her submissive ways and learned to become a strong, authoritative mistress. Together with Kingsley, she learned the ins and outs of becoming a dominatrix, learning to use every tool in the trade and mastering the whip, with the help of one controlling priest. A few of the characters that I have come to love made appearances, like Griffin, but there were a couple of other’s that played a huge part in the path that Nora would take.

I loved every moment of reading this book and seeing the struggles that they all had to deal with, especially Nora. She was conflicted about her love for Søren, but wanted to stand up for herself and become her own person out from under Søren’s shadow. I loved her determination and her witty ways as she made herself into the woman I have come to love throughout the series.

I love the way that Tiffany Reisz brought this series to a close. She gave me the insight to these characters that I have always wanted to know about. She also showed me how big of a piece Søren is in the overall story and that he was determined to get everything he wanted. The Queen was a scorching hot read and I am sad to close the book, but satisfied that I have all the answers I need. I am looking forward to what Reisz is going to deliver next!

I loved this moment where Kinsley's heart was breaking and he's trying to get across what he wants to Nora.

It’s him. It’s us. It’s our friendship. No, not that.” Kingsley looked up at her with sorrow in his eyes. “He’s all the family I have. If he leaves, he’ll take my family away from me.”
