Kate Collier is still recovering from a vicious rape and trying to make a success of her dress shop when Jason Randal and Anthony Richards return to London from the Continent, intent on winning her. She's known them for years, ever since they served with her late husband in the Peninsula against Napoleon. She'd been in love with them for almost that long. To discover they feel the same is a shock, but Kate isn't ready to turn her life back over to a man, or men. Jason and Tony prove hard to resist, however, especially when their close friendship blossoms into desire for each other as they make Kate's body burn with passion. The combination of their insatiable desire for her and their journey into a sexual relationship with one another is irresistible to Kate. A nightmare from her past tries to keep them apart, but the three long for a life together in spite of society's censure, and they will not be denied. Reader advisory: Contains male/male sex scenes.

My Review

Historical M/M/F Erotic Romance!

I love how Samantha Kane is putting her Masters in History to use! Who would have thought those four things would fit together to make one steamy romance novel? It really makes one wonder if there was ménage in the 18th and 19th centuries…

There was a terrific community of side characters in this book, and they’ve been set up beautifully to receive their own HEAs in future books.

I recently found this author when I stumbled on the re-release of her M/M romance novel, Cherry Pie. I loved it so much, I now want to consume her entire library, which seems to include a lot of historical romance. It’s not my usual cup of tea, but I tell you Ms. Kane may have just converted me.
