SUMMARY
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.

5 "The Birth of the Red Queen" Stars!

All hail the queen! Without a doubt Tiffany Reisz is the queen of BDSM erotica. Proving once again her incredible talent at weaving together a provocative, erotic tale, with an affinity for religious symbolism and the further development of what has become one of my favorite trio (Nora/Eleanor, Soren and Kingsley) of characters of all time, Tiffany Reisz has earned another 5 Stars in by book!

In THE QUEEN, we finally get to see how the Red Queen and the White Queen come together. After making promises of forever, and being asked to do the one thing she could never do for Soren, Eleanor takes a backseat to join her King in ruling the Underground, and for Nora and her underlying dominant side to be born. During this transformation process, in which Nora leans heavily on Kingsley, Nora comes to resent her past and comes to realize that she has had to suppress part of who she really is in exchange for the forever she promised.

Learning to let her dominant side shine through is not an easy process, particularly when she must displace the reigning queen to assume her rightful place. But if there is something that Nora flourishes under, it is a challenge. And we come to see how the Red Queen learns her tricks of the trade.

However, try though she might, Nora can't fully let go of the ties that bind her like no other to Soren. Even knowing that submitting to him means burying her dominant side, it's a constant struggle that is made no easier by Soren's constant attempts to reclaim his "Little One." Until finally Soren counters with a life-altering decision that Nora/Eleanor is unable to allow him to undertake no matter what it costs. Who will win in this battle of the Doms, and is there possibly any way to mesh together their own different desires, sadist/dominant needs and unique love bond?

What an incredible conclusion to one of the most memorable series of all times! With an ending befitting a Queen and her King and God, Ms. Reisz once again delivers a heartfelt, tantalizing, slightly wicked and taboo, one-of-a-kind read! Now Ms. Reisz, please, please write a new series for your devoted fans who can't wait to discover the next rulers of the erotic underworld!
