The King: The Original Sinners The White Years
Harlequin MIRA, Nov 25 2014, $14.95
In New York, Kingsley Edge reflects back on his life in which he knows he has been successful in every endeavor he undertook except one. That lone failure has left him despondent and always wondering what he could have done different to keep the love of his life Søren with him.
He travels to England where he surprises Zach and Grace Easton with a visit. They introduce him to their child Fionn who Grace had with King’s beloved. King tells Grace how he and Søren forged their relationship at school, his time in the Foreign Legion but mostly about the creation of the Eighth Circle thanks to Father Søren’s support while facing Reverend Fuller, a fire and brimstone preacher, and his equally caustic flock.
The second Original Sinners The White Years (see The Saint) tells the enthralling back story of how King built his BDSM kingdom. Well-written, series fans will enjoy the early relationship between Søren and King, and the later one that led to the Eighth Circle. Additionally, we also learn about the past of several Red Years (see The Mistress, The Angel, The Prince and The Siren) support players. Although Fuller is too stereotyped, this is a delightful erotica.
