SUMMARY
[Menage Amour: Erotic Cowboy Menage a Trois Romance, M/F/M, light BDSM, spanking]

Irish environmental consultant Shannon O'Reilly can't envisage accommodating one man in her busy life, never mind two sexy Texas cowboys who want to share her. Shannon discovers that James and Luke are best friends, business partners, and seasoned players. They both want her, and they don't mind sharing.

Shannon can't contemplate one man in her busy life, let alone two, and their ideologies and lifestyles are poles apart. They try to convince her that such a relationship is possible in a place like Meadow Ridge County, with men like them. But when oil spills, bullets fly, and lust burns, can love really conquer all?

Note: This is a stand-alone title.

** A Siren Erotic Romance

Shannon O'Reilly is an Irish environmentalist who has absolutely no time for men and all their foibles. She is asked by her best friend to come to Texas, to serve as the maid of honor in the wedding. Naturally she agrees. Timing couldn't be better when she is asked to speak at a conference in Houston the week before her expected arrival at the Sweet Water Ranch.

While in Houston, she meets businessman Luke and decides that since she's on vacation, she should let loose. Luke thinks that Shannon could be the one that he and his partner James have been looking for. When Shannon has to leave to get on the plane for Sweet Water, she leaves a note for Luke with her phone number and a wish that he contact her again. Shannon decides that she likes Luke more than she planned, but that's okay. When she meets James, she feels like she is cheating on Luke, to an extent.

When she meets James, he is bowled over by her beauty and grace. He knows that Luke was right in his belief that Shannon was made for them. He starts to woo Shannon, hoping that she would accept the ménage lifestyle that is natural in their town.

Shannon waffles about whether or not to join James and Luke. She wonders about how people would react to her having two men (it's a given in Sweet Water that some women hook up with two or more men). She wonders about her job, which makes sense, but her constant "what ifs" drove me a bit mad.

This is a really long book. I usually have the belief that the longer, the better. However, this book meandered. The timeline was incredibly short (around a month) and encompassed a wedding, Shannon accepting the ménage relationship, discussion of James and Shannon getting married, and an ecological disaster. Normally, I would think that this amount of information means a fast paced story, but unfortunately, this is not the case. The major catastrophe was almost a non-event and pretty lame to boot.
