Tastes of Seduction, Book 1
Angus Lowe feels like he s just stepped onto the set of "Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous." He s checking out a luxurious boutique hotel and winery, lured by the possibility of landscaping the gardens. And he s crazy mad about the woman giving him the tour.
Problem is, Lily Hemington is way out of his league. Not only does she "live" the lifestyle of the rich and famous, she is also crazy mad about the owner of the hotel, Blake Seymour.
Issues get cloudier or could that be steamier? when Angus meets Blake. It s clear Blake has deep feelings for Lily, but it s also obvious he can t take his eyes off Angus. While Angus doesn t find this at all unpleasant, he s painfully aware Lily and Blake are perfect for each other, and that he doesn t belong in their perfect world.
Now it s up to Lily and Blake to convince Angus the only world that counts is the one they all create together.
Warning: This book should be enjoyed with a bottle of chilled white wine. You ll need it to cool down when the heat among these three characters burns out of control.

I don't know how she does it, but Jess Dee, one of my favorite authors of erotic romance, writes some of the most decadent MMF stories out there, and the love triangle in SUMMER WINE is no exception.
Angus Lowe is excited to have a shot at landscaping a boutique hotel and winery straight out of Lifestyles of the Rich & Famous. He's also excited about Lily Hemington, the woman showing him around who he's fallen hard and fast for. But the classy and well-bred artist and professor is way out of his league, and he knows he has no shot with the blue-eyed beauty. So why the hell does she kiss him like he's the only man on earth...
...and then admit she's in love with Blake Seymour, the very man whose landscape he's bidding on.
Lily has been in love with Blake forever but the feelings aren't reciprocated. She can't help her attraction to Angus, who with the stroke of a finger has her coming apart in his arms. Blake has learned to control his love and desire for Lily over the years. He knows his need for men would only end up hurting her in the end, so he's conditioned himself to push away the need. But seeing her and her sexy-as-hell landscaper has shattered his self-control, and when the very perceptive Lily offers a solution they could all benefit from, he's done for.
After an epic sexperience, Angus is clearly the odd man out of this trio; he's just the entertainment for the day for the couple clearly in love and meant for one another. Can Lily and Blake convince Angus that his concerns about their social status gaps don't mean piss and vinegar when it comes to love?
Jess Dee is one of my favorite authors of bisexual erotic ménage stories for a very good reason--she can write a sex scene like nobody else, but she also brings a lot of heart to her stories that you typically don't find in the shorter stories. Lily was sweet and very sensual, the perfect foil for both Angus' honest yet self-deprecating dominance and Blake's lighthearted personality. The chemistry between the three of them was completely erotic, and I thought when the gloves came off and the truth came out, Lily handled the men perfectly. She got them to admit both their attraction to her but also to one another and simply orchestrated some seriously hot ménage action for herself!
All of the characters were perfectly developed, and I felt a connection to them almost immediately, particularly Angus' deep desire for Lily and his insecurity about his own background and current social status. I felt for Blake too; he's tried so hard to shield Lily from his desire for men, even though she's been aware for years.
Overall, SUMMER WINE, the debut book in the Tastes of Seduction series, was terrific! It makes me want to beg for more...more hot MMF sex, more wine, more fun and sexy banter and more of the incredibly talented Ms. Dee. I can't wait for the next book in this series!
