What could possibly please a woman more than her sweet valentine sweeping her off her feet with a delicious meal eaten in candle light, the scent of her favorite flowers filling the air and strains of romantic music creating a soft cloud of passion …
How about TWO valentines?
Now we’re talking! Erotic romance is all about the fantasy. And readers have spoken loud and clear that they’re falling in love with menage stories. And what’s not to enjoy about two heroes hell-bent on falling for the same woman? As a writer there’s always the challenge of figuring out how two alpha males could possibly figure out a way to share. But share they do! And sometimes there’s even some loving between them.
There are all kinds of discussions about whether this kind of relationship is real. Or whether a woman would truly be comfortable accomodating two lovers. But here’s where I’m coming from … erotic romance stories are about the relationships. About the bond that forms whether it’s a triad or a quartet. Is that love … that passion … believable? Does it bring the heroes and the heroine to that forever, happy-ever-after ending? Because that’s what I’m hoping to offer readers. The heartwarming believability that this relationship is the forever kind of love.
So what about you? Are you a fan of menage stories? Is there too much suspending your beliefs to make it a good read? Because anyone who knows me … knows that I’m curious about this kind of stuff!
The first menage I wrote BONDED BY NEED is the first in a shifter series. Jayda Kynslan, the heroine, is a polymorphic shifter, both cougar and wolf. So of course she needs two mates to satisfy her.
Veterinarian Jayda Kynslan recently moved to Montana. The mountains hold many secrets but none as mysterious as hers. She’s just discovered she’s a polymorphic shifter—wolf, cougar, human. Jayda’s not sure who she is—or what her heart and body need.
Recently promised to Cole Takoda, the head of the wolf council, Jayda wants to believe their bond will fulfill her every need. But there’s no denying her cougar growls for a mate of its own. Leader of the cougar council, Zane Brodan has no desire to get involved in a romantic relationship. Tangling with a shifter already promised to another is a bad idea—except when it’s a luscious polymorphic shifter doing the tempting.
Cole believes Jayda is his lifemate. Zane can’t resist her seductions. It seems someone wants to ruin all their plans. As the temperature and body count rise, so does Jayda’s need to possess both men—wolf and cougar—and her needs refuse to be denied.
She looked up the side of the mountain, down into the ravine and back up the rock wall, anywhere to avoid looking at him. “Yes, well, I guess we need to find a way to get out of here. And quickly.” Jayda used the wall to get to her feet, but her head spun again and she swayed. She slumped into Zane’s embrace and he held her while she retched.
“Really, Jayda, I’m pretty sure you have a concussion.” He brushed the hair from her face, his gaze raking over her features. The upturned nose fit perfectly with the rounded cheeks and full lips. Christ, she was beautiful.
Whoa, back up. What the hell was wrong with him? He had just been named head of the cougar shifters. Even considering getting involved with a wolf shifter was just a bad idea all the way around. And here he was, thinking lusty thoughts about the mate of the head honcho. Down, boy, down. He mentally refocused his libido. “There’s no hurry. We need to take this slow. Getting up the ridge may prove a little trickier than coming down.”
Once again she realized how close their bodies were and pushed from him. “Yeah, well, I think there is a reason to hurry.” She shot a glance over her shoulder. “Let’s just get out of here. You can take me back to the clinic and you and your cougars can come back and find the kits.”
The kits. He’d forgotten all about them. Zane went down on one knee and purred low in invitation. They popped out of the small crevice one at a time.
Jayda cooed. “Oh, you found them!”
“No, Jayda, you found them.” He picked one up by the scruff of the neck and smiled. “Not that I’d recommend this method again, but we have them.” Zane looked up the wall. “Now we just have to figure out how to get everyone back up to the truck.”
“Well, how did you get down here?” Jayda looked up, shading her eyes against the noonday sun. “I’m not sure I can climb.”
“I came down in cougar form. But I came in from that direction.” He turned and looked at the slope, trying to work out a solution. “I could carry you on my back.”
She didn’t respond. He turned to see her appraising him and his cock immediately stirred under her probing gaze. Embarrassed, he bent and let the kit join his sibling. “Stupid idea. Why don’t we both shift and we can each carry a kit in our mouths.” He shot her a look over his shoulder. “Do you feel well enough to shift?”
Her face flushed. “Yeah, but…” She looked from his ass to her body. “But then there’re no clothes for me when we get to the top.”
