Territory of Angels
(A:R Heaven 01)
Can Angels fall in love with a former shoe salesman?
Ryan thought becoming an Angel would be easy. Well, besides the whole dying part. But it’s difficult when he’s hounded by bouts of insecurity and a secret, unrequited love. The only good thing to happen to him is his friendship with the lovable Angel Finnian. But Finnian is lover to the Commander of Heaven’s Army: Anifiel, the most magnificent Angel in Heaven. Anifiel doesn’t approve of his lover befriending a measly human, unfortunately, and when Finnian’s curiosity about Earth compels him to leave Heaven and investigate, Anifiel blames Ryan’s bad influence. Ryan doesn’t know how to appease the fearsome if hunky Angel. Everything that Ryan does is wrong in the great Angel’s eyes. It doesn’t help that every time Anifiel draws near, Ryan is overcome with a lust too powerful to resist, a lust that Anifiel resents. Can Ryan manage to behave long enough to find a way to bring Finnian back? Or is Ryan doomed to remain a human in Heaven, never quite good enough for anyone?
While the human Ryan has made an enemy of the greatest Angel in Heaven–Anifiel, the Commander of Heaven’s Army–Ryan has somehow managed to befriend Anifiel’s kind and gentle battle companion, Vithius. Ryan adores the handsome Angel and is all too happy to teach Vithius the ways that humans make love. But how much knowledge is too much? Is he corrupting Vithius as Anifiel has accused? Meanwhile, Demons are beating at the gates of Heaven with renewed aggression. Vithius believes he knows why the Demons are so determined, but Anifiel and Ryan refuse to listen to his theory, afraid to believe what it signifies about their relationship to each other. Can Vithius bring the three of them together? Or will the desire that they continue to resist bring down the entirety of Heaven?

Boy Meets Boy Meets Boy
(Mad About the Brit Boys 04)
J.L. Merrow & Josephine Myles
Good men come in threes!
Three’s definitely not a crowd in this trio of contemporary erotic male/male/male ménages with a very British flavour from gay romance favourites Josephine Myles and JL Merrow.
Let your fantasies run wild as you take in the fit bodies down at the gym, or enjoy a very special birthday present from a loving partner. And even a trip to the dentist can be enjoyable with the right sort of distraction!
These stories have all been previously published, but are now available exclusively in this anthology.
Kit Bag by JL Merrow
Working late at the gym one night, Kit’s delighted when two of his fantasies made flesh come in for a workout. The guys he’s dubbed Black Muscle Vest and Grey Sweats are tall, gorgeous and insanely built, and Kit can hardly take his eyes off their glistening, pumped-up muscles.
But he’s not the only one who’s been dreaming of a little hot and sweaty man-on-man-on-man action. Harry and Sven are only too happy to make Kit’s fantasy a reality in the changing room—and Kit’s going to get a workout of his own he’ll never forget!
Unwrapped: The Birthday Gift by Josephine Myles
All Dave wants for his birthday is a threesome, and his devoted boyfriend Mark is keen to oblige. Enter Pedro, the mysterious stranger they pick up from the pub. Taking him home with them promises a scorching encounter… if only Dave can deal with his nerves first!
Getting a Filling by JL Merrow
Ivo’s terrified of going to the dentist, even with his lover, Colin, there for moral support. But when the dentist turns out to be gorgeous—and gay—fear turns to flirtation. The next time Ivo ends up in the dentist’s chair it’s a lot more fun, as the support Colin and Ted give him is very immoral indeed!

The Taste of Ink
Trevor Dunn has never gone to the Calgary Stampede, in spite of living in the city all his life. He would much rather listen to music and draw comics in his basement than hang out with a bunch of cowboys. When his sister drags him to the Stampede’s opening parade anyway, Trevor is drawn to a cowboy sporting a green hat.
Charlie opens Trevor’s mind to the world of country music and country boys. But then an old flame appears in the middle of the festival and Trevor is torn. He adores Charlie, but Mathieu—a punk singer turned acoustic crooner—was Trevor’s first love, but Trevor lost him by being too afraid to chase the dreams they shared.
Except after the Stampede ends, Charlie will go back to Toronto, Mathieu will go back on tour, and Trevor will go back to his basement. Realizing that’s notwhat he wants, Trevor enters a mechanical bull-riding contest in hopes of winning the heart of his true love—or maybe both of them. This time, fear won’t stop him from going after what he wants.

(Fitting In 01)
Two cops walk into a bar. Mason, the bartender, waits for the punch line, because no way in hell are these ridiculously hot men real cops. They’re straight out of a cop-fetish fantasy. But he quickly learns that Jack and Gray are the real deal, and they want him in the worst way.
What starts as a night of hot, three-way sex becomes a lot more. The two cops fulfill Mason’s submissive fantasies, but they also meet a more basic need, comfort. They want to take care of Mason, to offer him unconditional friendship, but their concern for him unnerves Mason more than even the kinkiest sex.
To find happiness with his new partners, Mason must change his belief that love is as much a fantasy as a pair of gorgeous, handcuff-wielding cops landing in his bed.

Trouble Comes in Threes
A snowstorm in the South—on New Year’s Eve—is a perfect recipe for a catastrophe. After two soul-crushing bad breaks, Kirk’s waiting for disaster number three to strike when naturally, two stray cats arrive on his doorstep during the storm and decide to make themselves at home. Tenderhearted Kirk lets them stay even though there’s something decidedly odd about his overly friendly felines.
Out of the punishing weather, and full of tuna, Dolf and Tal are happy to be snug in Kirk’s house. But then their human goes outside for firewood and suffers a nasty fall that leaves him unconscious. Now the two cats have no choice but to reveal themselves.
Kirk wakes up to find the two kitties are actually Dolf and Tal. They’re cat shifters—and his destined mates. Being part of a feline threesome is enough for Kirk to grapple with, but soon he learns they come from a clowder that doesn’t believe humans and shifters should mix. Kirk knew those two cats would be trouble. Little does he know the real trouble lies ahead.
Drayton Starberg takes his ship to the planet Falla Bray to join a harem in hopes of scoring money to fix up his old space ship. He has to compete with four other human like species to please the king and be chosen to use his DNA for the new heir. Problem is, each of the other males is growing on him, and the king is having a hard time picking just one.
Who will be the king’s handsome hero?
Be warned: ménage sex (MMMMMM), BDSM, rimming, m/m sex, orgies.
Review: Drayton is looking for a high paying job so he can fix his old space ship, traveling to Falla to try out for an unspecified job looks promising. He is slightly surprised about what the job entails but really needs the money, so he strips off hoping to be chosen for the harem of the Falla King. He has to compete with four other species to see who will be chosen to help produce an heir, but the attraction felt between all the men might make it difficult to follow the rules.
Okay that was, wow, just let me catch my breath, damn that story was hot. Drayton needs money fast so he answers an ad, he ends up on Falla competing to be the one chosen, but getting to know the other members of the harem has him being less interested in winning the kings eye and more interested in one of his fellow competitors. This is a really hot story with multiple interesting characters, Drayton, Ranix (King), Lavender, Layden, Dusk and Ashthor, each male is unique and sexy and they all certainly burn up all the pages.
This is a perfect book if you are looking for sci-fi flavored erotica, steamy sex scenes, and a hard-on on nearly every page. Drayton finds much more than he was looking for and I have to say he is a very lucky man, this is definitely the book to read if you want to overdose on hot sex.
Blurb: Mac MacAllister is obsessed; the online news reporter needs enough evidence to write a story accusing billionaire art collector Daniel Terrebone of stealing The Golden Dancer, a priceless work of art, from son-of-a-Nazi Horst Von Berg. The story promises the recognition Mac craves, but then Mac meets a real golden dancer, ballet star Trelain Medveyev, and his attraction to the man rocks his formerly straight world.
When the mysterious Terrebone “collects” this beautiful dancer, too, Mac rushes to the rescue like a knight in shining cargo pants and plunges into a three-way passion that tears him between love and guilt. Can Mac keep investigating when his story could send one man to prison and another to the morgue? Will this reporter get his story or get his men?
Publisher’s Note: This book contains explicit sexual situations, graphic language, and material that some readers may find objectionable: male/male sexual practices, ménage (m/m/m).
From the Author
Writing romantic suspense is a skill I’ve always admired — from afar. I used to beta read manuscripts for a dear friend who was a very successful romantic suspense writer. All those twists and turns and double crosses. I loved reading it but never dreamed I’d write it myself. Then Loose Id put out a call for manuscripts for their Men of Mystery series. What fun. Give us your secret agents and super heroes, your undercover cops and assassins, they said. I don’t usually write those guys. Not yet anyway. But I had just started a story I was inspired to write with a ballet dancer hero. Not exactly Navy SEAL material. But I had woven a story around my ballet dancer that involved an investigative reporter and a billionaire technologist who may or may not also be an art thief. Hmm.
Art theft? What if that theft had bigger implications? What if there was an outside villain who was a seriously nasty guy and what if he had a henchman that would make Ian Fleming proud? What if one hero is pitted against the other in a web of lies and mistrust and what if they both want the same thing? Hey, whaddya know? I had the makings of a romantic suspense. I pitched. I WON! They accepted my proposal. And then I had to WRITE it. Yikes! LOL.
The resulting book, Golden Dancer is a M/M/M ménage. Here are a few things I learned:
Even with no suspense elements, a ménage is challenging. You need to get far into the heads and hearts of all three men and show their motivations, loves, concerns. When you layer on top of that the need to create a suspenseful plot, you have a lot on your hands.
The beginning of the book, always a big hurdle in any book for any writer, is a huge challenge in romantic suspense. Especially erotic romantic suspense. You need to introduce the elements of the mystery or conflict right away, but the reader also wants to know who the romantic heroes are going to be. It’s a lot to get on stage at once. Especially when you have three heroes!
If you want to create a great hero, write a really good villain. As my husband always says, “Nazis make the best villains.” I took his advice.
Find the right balance between the sex and romance and the mystery and suspense. The reader will get antsy if the romance is ignored in favor of the suspense or vice versa.
Keep up the pace. Romantic suspense is not leisurely!
I had enormous fun writing Golden Dancer. I notice that all my books are getting a little more suspenseful as a result. I hope you enjoy it — the suspense, and, above all, the romance! : ) Ta
Review: I’m not going to lie. I haven’t found too many M/M/M that do it for me…until now. There always seems to be an inequality that sets my teeth on edge. Daniel, Trelain, and Mac find a way to make it work. It is no secret that I am Tara Lain’s biggest fan. I love the way she lets us fall in love with the characters as they fall in love with each other. There is plenty of ménage, but you also get to see the MCs interact individually outside the bedroom.
When I started reading about Trelain, I thought we were going to meet the twin of Roan from, TheScientist and the Supermodel. But, other than being beautiful men at the top of their artistic fields, Lain has created two characters with unique voices.
Regardless of the fact that this book was called The Golden Dancer, this is really Mac’s story. Trelain and Daniel are his companions and lovers on his journey. A journey that ends his finding acceptance and love that he never expected.
My favorite character among the trio is Daniel. He is a switch on every level and you never knew what was going to come out of his mouth. He is the fuel that powers this romance.
Finally, I know this is listed as a contemporary ménage romance, but there is a pretty decent suspense subplot woven into the steamy bedroom scenes.
Tara can’t write fast enough to satisfy me. I highly recommend this book, and encourage you to go back and read her earlier releases, The Scientist and the Supermodel and Genetic Attraction.
