The Blurb: [close] The Law of the love goddess Lufra states that no man may take his pleasure inside any part of a woman's body, unless she has climaxed first.
Each time, every time.
But when warrior-scout Anje is taken captive by Brin, Lufra's shaman, she discovers that not even divine law can protect her from the erotic wiles of two determined men.
Huge, dark and enigmatic, Brin wears a tattoo of the holy dragon on his magnificent body. Years of erotic training have given him skills and stamina Anje cannot match. But it's the strength of his will that threatens to conquer her very soul, while his beautiful young friend Trey has a bravado and a vulnerability that make her mouth water.
Anje fears Brin's arrogant prediction may be true "You'll surrender, scout, and you'll glory in it. You'll abandon yourself and adore it. Because you trust trust absolutely." Screaming and cursing her ecstasy, she learns that dark raptures are addictive.
But neither man is what he seems and all three are pawns in a suicidal scheme to placate an angry goddess. Saving her lovers will take everything Anje's got as a woman and a warrior.
My Thoughts: My rating: 5 of 5 stars
I hadn't read many MMF romances, but I kept coming across this book on just about every "must read" erotica list I saw online, so I had to check it out. I am so glad I did. Once I picked it up, I couldn't put it down.
I thought the story might be a bit farfetched, but I quickly fell in love with the characters, and I loved the world the author has created. Anje was strong, fiesty herione. Brin and Trey are down right awesome. I loved the way the relationship progresses between the 3, and the tension between Brin and Trey as they discover that they loved other.
This book was HOT! It has passion, action, suspense, and love (as well as lots of sex!) If I could give this one more stars...I would!
