Mac MacAllistre is obsessed; the online news reporter needs enough evidence to write a story accusing billionaire art collector Daniel Terrebone of stealing The Golden Dancer, a priceless work of art, from son-of-a-Nazi Horst Von Berg. The story promises the recognition Mac craves, but then Mac meets a real golden dancer, ballet star Trelain Medveyev, and his attraction to the man rocks his formerly straight world.
When the mysterious Terrebone "collects" this beautiful dancer, too, Mac rushes to the rescue like a knight in shining cargo pants and plunges into a three-way passion that tears him between love and guilt. Can Mac keep investigating when his story could send one man to prison and another to the morgue? Will this reporter get his story or get his men?

Surprisingly enough, ménages do it for me. This one more than did it. The perfect combination of steamy sex scenes, character vulnerability and mysterious background story just sucked me right in. I'm not lying when I say I hardly took a break and genuinely enjoyed every sentence in this complex tale of self-discovery, surrender and love.
It all starts with Mac chasing a story. THE GOLDEN DANCER has been stolen and the prime suspect is the billionaire Daniel Terrebone. Mac thinks he's on to something and as much as he dislikes the owner who's been robbed, his curiosity for the story is much stronger. He is set on exposing the billionaire as the thief.
Then another story comes in, one Mac shouldn't have gotten but is more than willing to write. Trelain is a real, flesh and blood dancer, a graceful star, winning the adoration of every crowd he performs in front of. Trelain can dance, and ballet happens to be very close to Mac's heart.
But Daniel doesn't just collect art, and Trelain has both eyes as well as great appreciation for beauty. Running to the rescue has Mac falling into all kinds of lust charged situations, and before he knows it, covering a story gets all kinds of additional meanings.
From simple infatuation to full out realization, Mac's life flips in a mere blink of an eye, and instead of just day dreaming about steel thighs and golden hair, he finds himself expecting that strong arm on his shoulder and the irresistible sound of begging.
I'm sure not everyone will like this story. For one it's extremely sexually charged and the guys certainly don't lack any imagination when it comes to experimentation. The whole theft thing was done nicely, but for people expecting a lot of explanations and detailed descriptions, it will probably be a disappointment. The author focuses more on the love story, the building relationship, conflicting emotions and the strings connecting the three men together.
In every way, I approved of that approach. I loved the excessive sex, the emotional sides which came out in just the right moments, and those sugar coated sentences of affection simply did me in. I liked the idea of the theft and thought it a great starting point, and a rather good conflict later on, but did I expect details about it? Not at all. I wanted a romance and a romance I got. It only had three hunks instead of two and that made it pretty much impossible to wipe the smile off my face.
Tara Lain knows how to write her men, breathe life into them and give them just the right amount of sensitivity without making them a weeping mess. They are funny, sensual and endearing, the same as her wonderful book.
