Welcome back lovelies! Today I would like to welcome erotic romance author, Joely Sue Burkhart to our Ménage à May event. Joely is joining us on her blog tour for her newest contemporary erotic romance novel, Yours To Take.
When a Menage Isn't Three Ways
Okay, okay, we know that a ménage à trois involves three people. But what happens if all three people aren't physically attracted to each other? It's hard enough to write a menage in a modern-day world where three people end up in a committed relationship. Why on earth would people choose to stay together if they all didn't love and desire each
That's the challenge I faced in Yours to Take.
Elias loves Vicki and she loves him.
Jesse loves Vicki and she loves him.
Elias and Jesse not only aren't interested in each other, but Elias is one protective alpha cop who doesn't want anyone else involved with his woman. It's all he can do not to flatten the other man. At first, he's guilty enough -- because he walked out on their relationship three months ago -- to tolerate whatever she wants to get a second chance with her. As the days go by, it becomes more and more apparent that Jesse isn't just a cause she's going to "save" and then go on with her life. She cares for him too much. Losing him would hurt her as much as losing Elias hurt her.
Some readers are probably going to be disappointed that there's no MM
action. But it definitely adds conflict to their situation. Elias has no interest in another man. He's the most dominant in the relationship, alpha all the way. How can he possibly accept another man in her bed? Can his pride survive the fact that he's not enough for her? That she needs more than he can provide or she wouldn't be so attracted to Jesse in the first place?
Now that's a complex menage. What better way can a man prove his love
than to give his woman every single thing she desires?
Even if it's another man.

The Connaghers, Book 3
The day one of her old clients gunned down a cop, former defense attorney Vicki Connagher lost everything—her passion for justice, and her lover, Detective Elias Reyes. The dead cop’s partner.
Even though she’s following her dream to start her own fashion line, it’s tough with heartache as her only companion. Until she brings Jesse, a wandering street artist, in from a freak Texas snowstorm. His submissive flirting brings out dominant tendencies she never knew she possessed, yet she hesitates to let him take her as far and as hard as she wants to go.
Some homeless junkie in Vicki’s house? Not on Elias’s watch. Pride kept him away, but as long as Jesse is staying in Vicki’s downstairs shop, he’s staying with Vicki. On the couch, but it’s a start.
As the days go by, the three work out an uneasy alliance. But Vicki’s joy at having Elias back in her life is tempered with a growing desire to have it all. Elias in her bed, and Jesse under her command. The only question remaining is if her tough alpha cop is willing to embrace all that she is…
