Books-n-Kisses is pleased to let Stephanie Julian take over the blog today to chat about her love of writing menages. So I will set aside and let Steph tell you herself.

Take it away Steph…..

Thanks Kelly,

I love to write ménage. If one hero is good, two have to be better, right?

Well, yes, actually. But…

With three main characters, the story actually has four angles to consider.

There’s the heroine and hero one; heroine and hero two; the relationship between the three of them; and then there’s the relationship between the two men, which is important even if you’re not writing a male/male/female romance.

It’s a delicate dance and it’s always fraught with complications.

In the case of Amity, Etruscan Goddess of Health, it’s one she no longer expects to encounter. Sure, she was one of the original party girls. Along with her twin sister, Kari, Goddess of Healing, she burned the candle at both ends during their heyday in the BCs.

And why not, when the men were plentiful and she and Kari were rightly worshipped for their beauty and powers?

But over the centuries, she’s lost more of her powers as she’s lost most of her worshippers. Today, she uses what little strength she has left to help cancer and accident survivors heal.

When she meets Remy and Rom at a bar and takes them home for a little R&R, she never expects to find two men who make her feel almost like she did in her heyday.

Remy and Rom aren’t really looking for a woman. They’re looking for vengeance on the demon that killed their families. But they both have very different views of what they want out of life.

Amity has to fulfill both of their desires. But first she has to figure out what that is—which could be difficult because even the men don’t really know what they want. Except for one thing.

They both want her.

TOGETHER. THEY CREATE THE MOST POWERFUL MAGIC OF ALL …

Romulus and Remus are sexy werewolf cousins with an unbreakable bond. When they meet beautiful goddess Amity and save her from an encroaching demon, they discover that the three of them together are way more powerful than any of them could ever have imagined. And they’re going to need that power to overcome the forces that are determined to steal Amity’s magic and destroy the two men. As different as night and day, and each an amazing man in his own right, Rom and Remy make all of Amity’s deepest fantasies come true

 

Excerpt:

Rom knew that look. When Remy got an idea in mind, he was like a dog with a bone, no pun intended.

“Amity, I don’t want anything to happen to you.”

Amity smiled at Remy, lifting one hand to cup his jaw, and lust moved through Rom like a tidal wave of heat, threatening to take him under.

He wanted her, craved her on a level he hadn’t thought possible. But the way she returned Remy’s intense gaze made it clear she desired his cousin.

Fucking hell.

Remy had never looked at a woman the way he was looking at Amity. With desire instead of animal lust. Remy viewed sex as a necessary part of life, like eating and sleeping. He needed it to sustain him, but sex wasn’t for pleasure. It was for release.

Remy didn’t just want to fuck Amity. He felt an emotional connection with her.

Of course the first woman Remy would fall for would have to be a goddess.

“Thank you, Remy. I feel the same about you and Rom.”

Hell, hearing his name come from those beautiful lips just made him want her all the more. His skin felt too tight, and his hands curled into fists. He wanted to walk into the house, grab her, and throw her back down on the bed and fuck her senseless.

No way would he ever do that to a goddess but, gods damn, he so wanted to.

“I have a favor to ask of you, Remy. One I’m not quite sure how to broach.”

“Anything. You can ask anything of us.”

Shit. Shit. He and Remy might not have been raised in the den, but their parents had made sure they knew the ways of their people.

You didn’t refuse an Etruscan goddess anything.

But when a goddess wanted something from you, it probably wasn’t anything good.

Still, she’d saved both of their lives, and they owed her.

“Would you be willing to make love to me again? This time with your cousin.”
