Zarah Elliott's husbands are holding out on her, sexually. It's been months since they've engaged in a decadent threesome. For Zarah, this is unacceptable, but no matter how often she asks for Jack and Lane to have their wicked way with her at the same time, neither man will relent. Are they losing interest in her? In their relationship?
Jack Masters misses the unique dynamic of the ménage relationship he shares with his wife and best friend. It's been months since he and Lane shared Zarah, but Jack believes Zarah isn't physically ready to take both him and Lane on.
Lane Dundas is the third wheel in an unconventional ménage relationship. Recently, the three of them have drifted apart. Jack's reluctance to engage in a threesome adds to Lane's anxiety, triggered by Zarah's emotional withdrawal. Lane is lost in the relationship that means more to him than drawing his next breath. Has he outlived his usefulness in their relationship?
A night of romance this Valentine's Day might bring these lovers back together. Zarah hopes so; otherwise, it might be time for one of them to move on.

As the sequel to Pursuing Zarah, RECLAIMING ZARAH gives reader a look into the lives of committed menage and draws you into a world with real life problems while giving it an enticingly erotic twist.
Jack, Lane and Zarah are now in committed menage with seven month-old twins, demanding work schedules and very little time for themselves. They each are feeling antsy about not being able to come together as a threesome in the way that they had in the beginning of their relationship. Jack is afraid of hurting Zarah, Lane is afraid that he doesn't fit in with the legally married Jack and Zarah, and Zarah is afraid that her men don't want her anymore. So when, Valentine's Day rolls around, the men decide to declare their love in more ways than one, in order to get their threesome back on the right track.
There were many reasons that I liked this sequel. And although it's a sequel, you don't have to read the first book to be able to follow along with this one. I loved Jack, Lane, and Zarah the first time I read their story, and enjoyed them just as much this time as well. They are extremely believable characters. I was impressed by the way the author showed that being in a committed relationship is hard work and there will be bumps in the road. It's not all sex and magic. Everyone had their reasons for why the other two were slipping away, but their distance could have been avoided with some communication. But at the same time, the story wasn't bogged down in angst.
Also, it was fun to see the characters from the first book. Mack and Rita Davis are back providing love and support for the trio, as well as some comic relief. The plot was well developed and the pace was appropriate. We were treated to quite a bit of back story to get us caught up from where the first story ended and this one starts.
I also felt that the sex was HOT! Very, very HOT! They men were good when they had Zarah alone, but when the three of them came together in their M/F/M, we're talking scorching!
However, there a few things that I didn't like. The twins were Zarah and Jack's. They called Lane "Uncle Lane" around the babies. That felt awkward to me. If they are all supposed to be in the family together, it doesn't seem equal. Also, there was a bit of trouble for Zarah at her job, and the way it was handled really took me out of the story in an "ARE YOU FREAKIN' KIDDING ME" type of moment.
With its illustration of what happens in relationships after real life sets in, very true-to-life characters, a well-developed plot, and smokin' hot love scenes with two hunky men and a very willing woman, I had an enjoyable time reading it overall.
