"Masterly and rich... Highly recommended." — Library Journal (Starred Review)
As the Jack-of-All-Wicked-Trades for a secretive French military intelligence agency, Lieutenant Kingsley Boissonneault has done it all—spied, lied, and killed under orders. But his latest assignment is quite out of the ordinary. His commanding officer's nephew has disappeared inside a sex cult, and Kingsley has been tasked with bringing him home to safety.
The cult’s holy book is Story of O, the infamous French novel of extreme sado-masochism. Their château is a looking-glass world where women reign and men are their willing slaves. Or are they willing? It’s Kingsley’s mission to find out.
Once inside the château, however, Kingsley quickly falls under the erotic spell cast by the enigmatic Madame, a woman of wisdom, power, and beauty. She offers Kingsley the one thing he’s always wanted. But the price? Giving up forever the only person he’s ever loved.
Reisz revisits her Rita-winning Original Sinners erotic romance series in this fantastic prequel. In 1989 France, Kingsley, a spy for an agency so secret it has no name, goes on a mission to a house where the women are in charge and the men submit to them. Though he initially goes there to find his colonel's nephew, he enjoys himself so much that his thoughts return to the chateau again and again. The madame of the house tests his limits and eventually issues him a challenge: Kingsley will have to face the love he's held onto throughout the years for the man who first brought him down the path of erotic submission. Readers who are drawn to BDSM will find this a wonderfully written exploration of it. The characters are strong, and there is enough mystery that the twists feel well earned. Reisz's novel is highly recommended to both new readers and those who are already familiar with Kingsley's world.
Love this series!
Wow.. Tiffany Reisz has a way with writing-
Kingsley is sweet, sexy and charming young man who is given an assignment his commander felt he would be good for. A rescue sort of mission for the commanders nephew who is believed to be held against his will in a cult of sorts. However, he is told to check on him and ensure that he is ok and not being held unwillingly.
Once in the Chateau we are treated to sex, love, and a little bit of understanding into Kingsley's younger years.
Amazing story and characters that will have you wanting more... Love this series!
I adore TiffanyReisz!
Nobody writes a eroticism like she does!
Once again we are transported to the Erotic and intriguing world of the Original Sinners by Tiffany Reisz oh KINGSLEY!
This takes place with a young and strapping 24 year old Kingsley and he's young yet he’s lived such a life. What I find myself loving most is how we are filling in these little spaces in time from the ORIGINAL SINNERS series. Journeys that I don’t know how we ever lived without. THIS WAS FANTASTIC. We see deep into the the soul of Kingsley and how he sees himself. It’s peeking behind the great curtain where so much of his personality, his plot and ideas were created, How HE BECAME the MAN HE IS. When he started His “unofficial” op and his short yet life altering time spent with Madame and the others at the |The Chateau (The Original Sinners, #9) nobody could expect what would happen when it ended. Secrets games and of course lies always play a part. No spoilers! If you haven’t read the Sinners you are being judged by me this is 9th in a series don't ruin it by reading it without knowing the characters! Absolute must read .
