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 yearlong 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.
I felt I had a hard time answering the question that was posed in the book: What were the two times that Eleanor almost came back to Soren? I think maybe coming back to present time for each story would have been best to differentiate between the two times Eleanor almost came back to Soren.
I would have liked to seen more current time and the end of the book being told. Although I really like how Tiffany wrapped the book up with where the characters lives landed, I just would have loved to spend more time with the current them and not with the past them. I don’t think that my less than enthusiastic review is because I am sad that the book has ended, I just feel that it wasn’t plotted out as well as the other books. I just know I’m going to get my butt whipped for my review, but girls, I’m being honest here.
