Historical Erotic Menage
Blurb: Eighteen months into a delicate ménage à trois relationship, Lucerne, Viscount Marlinscar is feeling the strain. He’s engaged in a constant tug o’ war as both his lovers compete to win his affections. Only, Lucerne’s not so eager to choose. Matter of fact, he’s beginning to wonder if he’s not the one that’s being left out, considering the effort Vaughan and Bella pour into tormenting one another.
When the three lovers attend a society music recital, jealousy again rears its head, which convinces Lucerne that it’s time to take matters into his own hands. The decision doesn’t go down at all well, particularly with Vaughan, who shows his displeasure by dishing out erotic punishments to both Lucerne and Bella. However, the tug o’war isn’t over until there’s a winner, that is, unless the lovers can put aside their differences and decide that all three can have the passion and satisfaction they derive only from each other, no matter which one of them is in the middle!
Review: Indiscretions is one of the prequels to Phantasmorgia, which was published a few years ago. I read the latter because I love Regency historicals and erotica. Combine the two and I’m in love. However, I couldn’t bring myself to care about any of the characters. That’s certainly NOT the case with Indiscretions. I wish it had been released first, then I might have felt different about Phantasmorgia.
Ms. Ellis does an excellent job of showing the conflict each individual in this volatile menage. She explains Vaughn’s unwillingness to relinquish control, Lucerne’s need for escape from the middle and Bella’s reluctance to accept her feelings for Vaughn. I found myself rooting for the three to find happiness together.
And, let’s not forget the steamy sex! Wow!
