What it’s about:


As the Jack-of-All-Wicked-Trades for a secretive French military intelligence agency, 24-year-old 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.

The Chateau is a new standalone Original Sinners novel from international bestseller Tiffany Reisz, author of The Siren and The Lucky Ones.

Guest Reviewer Jeannie’s Thoughts:

Tiffany Reisz’ latest, “The Chateau”, could have just as easily been entitled “Kingsley Edge: The Lost Years”. The first of what I pray is many standalone novels in the Original Sinners universe, “The Chateau” thrusts us into the world of young Kingsley Boissonneault – spy and hedonist. With time on his hands and a certain priest on his mind, he’s sent on an off the books mission to rescue a young man from the clutches of a female sex cult. Of course, he’s only given part of the story, and the hostage story ends up being a far different situation.

I’m a huge fan of Tiffany Reisz and her masterful way of weaving literature, theology and kink into a mesmerizing story – not to mention Kingsley Edge, her bad boy switch with a penchant for sartorial splendor – and “The Chateau” delivers on all counts. Using “The Story of O” as a jumping off point, Kingsley’s mission turns into a bit of a submissive’s fever dream. The story especially appeals to me because we see a glimpse of Kingsley’s softer, gallant side, and the inspiration for the Kingdom that Kingsley Edge will ultimately rule. His closely guarded innocence was a revelation, making his grown up swagger that much sexier. Reisz’ stories, as always, are kinky, titillating, sexually adventurous and artfully drawn, but aren’t for the closed minded or weak of heart.

If you love the Original Sinners series, you will adore this addition to the canon. If you love smart , well written erotica, with a side of arch banter and French elan, and haven’t met Kingsley, Nora and Father Sterns, pick up The Original Sinners series ASAP
