Ménages are something I truly enjoy reading about, but those are also some of the stories that are most difficult to write. How do you make it work three-way without giving the impression of distancing one of the characters? Some authors are brilliant when it comes to creating unbreakable emotional ties and making the sexual aspect of their relationship a side thing. I more than found what I … Continue reading

I started this book feeling somewhat discouraged by the year the book was set in, but that only lasted as long as it took me to meet William. He was somewhat dangerous with a wicked sense of humor and a fast mind. He didn’t settle for the norm and despite having an eventful past and considering himself mostly retired from such life, he was still larger than the stuffed mold … Continue reading
