So she seeks out Phineas Moore and asks for his hand in marriage. Rumors have it that he is a "lover of men" so she knows he won't be bothersome in the marriage bed and since he already has a fortune he won't desire hers. When Phineas accepts and she gets to know him, she's surprised at how much she actually desires him...and that he is also a "lover of women" - most especially her. She's also quite s Lelia, having been saddled with quite a fortune by her cousin, is tired of the fortune hunters. So she seeks out Phineas Moore and asks for his hand in marriage. Rumors have it that he is a "lover of men" so she knows he won't be bothersome in the marriage bed and since he already has a fortune he won't desire hers. When Phineas accepts and she gets to know him, she's surprised at how much she actually desires him...and that he is also a "lover of women" - most especially her. She's also quite surprised to find herself the target of a killer. To investigate this, Phineas seeks out help from a spy, Rafael Gaudi. The two of them are highly attracted to one another and suddenly Phineas has his hands full with lovers, so what can he do but bring them all together? Lelia certainly finds it stimulating. But now someone has begun targeting Rafael as well. This is a short and sexy book, but I think it could have been better if it were longer...but I think it depends on how you prefer to read this. If it's straight up smut with a dash of suspense, then this is probably your story. There isn't much love or romance happening here. Phineas and Lelia realize their attraction with Lelia suddenly getting kinda jealous/possessive and then Phineas meets Rafael (who gets possessive lightning fast) and then Rafael meets Lelia and is attracted and then the three realize they have chemistry together and decide to all be lovers together. This is within a matter of days. And all while someone is trying to kill Rafe and Lelia and Rafe and Phineas are investigating. There's M/M sex, M/F sex and M/M/F sex. The scenes aren't very long and drawn out, but they pack a bit of punch. So if it's love and romance you're looking for, that doesn't really happen here. And that's usually what I read for. I like sex and this is my kind of kink, but I like to have an undercurrent of feelings in mine. There's some possessiveness in this triangle, but it's too fast to be love and nobody throws the word out there. So that's just me then. As for the suspense, I did find myself wondering why they zeroed on the particular suspect that they did. Logic didn't exactly point to this person as a suspect, so I was a bit confused why they were so gung ho about THAT one.

    A Lover of Men by Julia Talbot, for me this was a very different book from an author I know and love. I liked that Ms. Talbot branched out here in this book and showed me another side of her writing. Makes me love and want more from her in the future. In this story, Leila she is considered a spinster at the age of 25. She is sharp, and knows what she wants out of life. She just goes for what she wants. Phineas he is bisexual. Complex man, Soldier's mind. Wealthy in his own right. Very astute. Tou A Lover of Men by Julia Talbot, for me this was a very different book from an author I know and love. I liked that Ms. Talbot branched out here in this book and showed me another side of her writing. Makes me love and want more from her in the future. In this story, Leila she is considered a spinster at the age of 25. She is sharp, and knows what she wants out of life. She just goes for what she wants. Phineas he is bisexual. Complex man, Soldier's mind. Wealthy in his own right. Very astute. Tough but fair in his dealings. Leads by example not fear which I loved to see. These two get engaged. They are both lonely and need someone. So it seems to be the perfect fit. When Phineas hires Rife to protect Leila after the two are shot at in the park, things get a tad complicated. Rife has worked as an intelligence investigator. He is in lust with Phineas, but where does that leave Leila? I liked watching all three of these characters find their way in this story. Leila is a complicated but strong heroine and her men are equally as strong to tame her. I did like that I never really knew what would happen next in this story. Great pace to the story too, when you want a romance with a little intrigue and a whole lot of love this is the one to pick up. Five Shooting Stars
