Though now cautious when it comes to relationships, MacKenzie just might be everything he's looking for and more. 
    Not expecting to meet the tall, dark and handsome captain on her flight home, Mac finds Damon's domineering persistence a turn-on. She decides to take a chance on him, which, in the end, might be a mistake when a person from his past returns. A man Damon loved and still does. 
    The last five years had been dark journey for Trevor, and he's now ready to return to the light. He's back in Boston to not only ask for forgiveness but to reconnect with Damon, since he still loves the man. However, there's a complication. Damon is seeing someone else and Trevor might be too late.

    He was dark. So dark, she couldn't keep her gaze from him… 
    When Paige Reed spots a man across the room at a party, she's fascinated and decides she wants him in her bed. Fortunately, her husband, Connor, doesn't mind. He's attracted to the powerful man too. 
    Always bi-curious, the right opportunity has never presented itself to Connor Morgan. Until now. He doesn't mind bringing another man into their marriage as long as it doesn't drive a wedge between him and Paige. 
    Former NFL player, Graedon Ward likes to be in control. He's more than pleased with Paige's obvious interest. However, she makes it quite clear: it's a package deal. If he wants her, he has to take on her husband too, and past experience has taught him that's a dangerous road to travel. 
    The chemistry between the three is explosive, but it's Grae's desire to share the same level of intimacy he sees between Paige and Conner that puts real pressure on the threesome. And it may cause it all to crash and burn. 
    Note: This book in the series can be read as standalone. It includes an HEA ending. It is intended for audiences over 18 years of age since it includes light BDSM as well as explicit sexual scenes between all three characters.

    Will Derrie is not dating his friend Molly. At all. They're just fighting about Star Trek and screwing a lot. 
    They should be perfect together. She loves the gay couple with whom he still shares sex and whips, and when Will finally confesses he'd rather be spanked than seduced, Molly's a domination savant. She says gorgeous, filthy things, in just the right tone. So why can't Will get into it? 
    Maybe it's just easier to give up and accept that the best sex he'll ever have is with a gay dom who has his own romance to deal with. It seems depressing but probably true, until said gay dom smacks him around a bit and convinces him that the potential rewards of communicating honestly with Molly are worth the risk. 
    Warnings: Various forms of pizza and beer are consumed during times of angst, Marvel and DC Comics are invoked within moments of each other, and the hot stuff is still almost entirely with the boyfriends. (The author apologizes to Molly, whose steamy scenes mostly take place off-page.)
