[Ménage Amour: Erotic Paranormal Ménage a Trois Romance, M/F/M, werewolves, sex toys, HEA]

Alexander Gregg and Butler Roman, enforcers for Beckett’s pack, are stoic, often brutally serious wolf shifters that no pack member or outside challenger ever crosses. Their lives hold no tenderness, no softness, and no mate to complete their triad.
The Fates have gifted them with Nikki. She brings laughter and tenderness into their lives. And hell no! She is not afraid of them!
They need her to be safe and understand that sometimes giving up control does not mean weakness. All they have to do is convince her to put aside her stubbornness and accept them as her mates and the fathers of her babies.
Note: This book contains double vaginal penetration.

Alex and Butler are struggling with their wolves. They are at the point of asking their Alpha to release them from their duties for the good and protection of the pack. But they find hope upon meeting the Alpha Queen’s friend, Nikki. Can the two convince Nikki that she is the woman they want? Or will Nikki’s fears cause the unhappiness of not only herself but her men as well? Babies for Nikki by Lynnette Bernard is second in the Beckett’s Wolf Pack, Triad Mates series. Although this story can be read as a stand alone, you will better enjoy the nuances of the characters after having read the first story in this series. I enjoyed Nikki. She was a strong woman who was afraid to trust. She was afraid to risk her heart even though she was being offered her deepest desires. I loved that Alex and Butler were willing to be patient while Nikki struggled. They were struggling with their very natures but wanted what was best for the woman destined to be theirs. They were willing to let Nikki go so that she could understand that they needed her just as much as she needed them. I loved the emotional depth that Ms. Bernard gave her characters. It lent itself to a much more believable and touching story. I am enjoying this series and am looking forward to where Ms. Bernard will take us readers next." -- Tangie, TwoLips Reviews
4 SWEET PEAS: "Lynette Bernard’s BABIES FOR NIKKI is a great sequel to LAURIE’S LOVES, the first book in the Beckett’s Wolf Pack, Triad Mates series. We get to catch up with Laurie and her mates Jace and Jackson as well as get to know her best friend Nikki as she meets the shifters destined to be her mates, Alex and Butler. I enjoy shifter stories very much and these ménage books are full of good people, both humans and wolves, as well as the occasional villain to add angst and a bit of evil to the story. This is a long novel. Not only do I not have a problem with the length, I would happily have continued reading if it had been even longer. Luckily for the reader, part of the shifter magic in Ms Bernard’s world, is the ability to experience visions of the future. These futures are not guaranteed. It is pointed out that the person having the vision can work to avoid it. However, Nikki, Alex, and Butler have visions of their future together that lets us know the HEA is going to grow in happiness and joy for all of them. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys shifters, ménage relationships, strong heroines, loving and protective heroes, and a good story with an HEA. Plus, it has a lot of smexy scenes that are just plain yummy to read. Enjoy." -- Mrs. Condit, Mrs. Condit & Friends Read Books
It was pure coincidence that Nikki found herself sitting in the middle of Butler and Alexander on one side of the table while Julia and Laurie sat on the other side. At least, that’s how Nikki chose to see it. She liked the way they sat close to her, making her feel safe as she was sandwiched between them. It was also nice to feel their legs pressing against hers. She knew it was just because the table was small and the bench seat had little room to offer her and the two massive men. Whatever the reason, she was going to take any closeness she could get.
“Here,” she said quietly as she took two plates of food from the tray and set one before each man. “Eat up. You’re going to need to keep up your strength if you plan on spending the afternoon with us.” There was a definite twinkle in her eyes as she teased them, and she was rewarded with both their smiles. Her heart sped up, and she felt a gush of liquid escape her as a flood of need exploded through her body.
Alex took the napkin and plastic cutlery she offered him, holding his hand over hers just a second longer than normal. “Thank you, Nikki,” he told her sincerely, rubbing his thumb across the back of her hand before he reluctantly released her.
This is so not helping.
Nikki closed her eyes and took a deep breath, trying to center herself. It didn’t work. The wonderful masculine smell that invaded her senses served to only heighten her awareness of the two men beside her. Opening her eyes, she reached forward and picked up another napkin and cutlery pack.
She had to cool it. These men were bodyguards for Laurie. She would get to the bottom of that later, but for now she had to mentally shake herself and focus. She knew these men were just being kind. She was not going to give in to the feeling that anything might happen between them. Turning, she handed the other set of plastic cutlery and a napkin to Butler, who took it gratefully, holding her hand a little longer than necessary as well.
“Thank you, sweetness,” Butler told her softly.
“Oh, you are a charmer,” she answered, teasing him, reaching up to touch his cheek gently. “You’d better be careful, or I’ll take you home with me.”
The sudden sound that could only be described as a growl from Alex startled her. She looked at him quickly, surprised to see the possessive gleam in his eyes. His silver gray eyes flashed hotly at her, and she could have sworn she had seen them change color.
“You can come, too,” she told him, laughing, touching his cheek lightly, surprised when he turned into her palm and rubbed his face against her hand.
She pulled her hand away and busied herself with her own meal. They were just being flirts. They probably did the same thing to every woman they met. There was no way she could let herself get caught up with any thoughts of fantasy no matter how gorgeous these men were. Instead, she settled in her little spot between them and concentrated on eating her food.
They ate in comfortable silence, Nikki smiling at Laurie and winking as she indicated how Julia was enjoying her meal. Laurie nodded and winked back, unable to keep the smile of happiness from her face.
“So, how far along are you, Julia?” Nikki asked her once all of them had finished their food.
“Five months,” Julia told her, smiling down at her belly and rubbing it tenderly. “I’m so thankful to finally be pregnant again. My mates are happy that we’re having another child. They want a big family just like I do.”
There goes that word again. Mates. As in more than one. She would have to ask Laurie to explain more about that when they got a chance to be alone. Even though she didn’t really get the whole double mate thing, Julia’s words made her heart happy. How wonderful that her men wanted a family. There must be some good guys in the world after all. Despite the ache in her chest at the fact that she would never have that future, she was glad that someone else did.
“Adrian and Colin are lucky men,” Alexander spoke up, looking directly at Nikki, his deep voice vibrating through her. “Julia is a wonderful mother. My niece Tammy is amazing. You’ll see when you meet her.”
Nikki smiled as she looked up at him, entranced by the way the silver in his gray eyes swirled as he looked down at her. “Your niece?”
Alex nodded. “My oldest brother Adrian is one of Julia’s mates,” he explained, surprising Nikki by the way he said it, as if relationships with three people were a common occurrence.
“Well, lucky you to have two men to love you,” she said without hesitation as she turned to face Julia. “I’ll bet you have some hot nights.”
Julia blushed but couldn’t stop the laugh that escaped her. “You could say that,” she admitted.
“So, Laurie, you seem to be also equally blessed with your two men,” Nikki teased, laughing as she reached out across the table to touch her friend’s hand. “You’ll have to tell me how that works exactly while we’re shopping.”
Laurie laughed and squeezed Nikki’s hand. “I’m so glad you met us here today, Nikki.”
Nikki nodded and sat back against the bench seat, a contented sigh escaping her as the two men beside her crowded against her. She closed her eyes briefly, taking in the wonderful feeling and the amazing scent that soothed her heart, then opened them and looked first to Butler and then to Alex.
“So what about you two?” she asked, her tone light. “Do you have two women each?”
Both men turned in their seats to face her seriously. The smile left her face as she realized how intensely they were looking at her.
“No, Nikki,” Butler answered hesitantly, his deep voice taking on a timbre that made her hands shake and her heart race. “There is only one woman that is destined to be our mate.”
Nikki’s eyebrows rose in surprise. Our mate? As in Alexander and Butler will share one woman as their mate?
Wow. Lucky woman.
Alex covered her body with his own, gently pulling the soft robe away until her naked skin was covered by his. She could feel his hard shaft nudging against her pubic bone, and she opened her legs to him so that he settled comfortably within the cradle of her hips.
Instead of pushing deep inside her as she expected him to, he slid down her body, kissing her mouth, her chin, her neck as he made his sensuous descent. Settling against her breasts he peppered gentle kisses across the fullness of them, holding one firmly before circling the rosy nipple with his tongue, laving it repeatedly before latching onto it and pulling it deeply into his mouth.
She moaned at the sensation and strained upward, arching her back so that her breasts were willingly offered to him. His soft growl of happiness made her smile, and she turned to look at Butler as he gently drew her face toward his to meet his waiting kiss. Before she could utter a sound, he took her mouth in a fierce kiss that left her breathless and wanting. She loved the taste of him and sucked on his tongue as he searched her mouth.
He groaned at her boldness. Pulling away slowly, Butler peppered kisses down the column of her neck, laving the soft skin of her shoulders and settling against the soft mound of her breast. He palmed it gently and closed his eyes in total joy at the feel of her filling his hand. A vision of her suckling their cub at her breast flashed through his mind, and he quickly shielded the thought from Nikki but allowed Alex to see the glimpse of their future with their delectable mate.
He heard the responding growl from Alex and knew that his partner had the same reaction to the vision that he did. Warmth spread through his body at the sight of Nikki nursing one of their babies, and he knew in that moment that he was lost to her. He was totally and irrevocably in love.
Nikki was awash in emotions and feelings. Both men worshiped her body, touching, kissing, caressing, until she was writhing beneath them, the pain in her back and neck forgotten as she gave herself over to the beauty of their touches. The gentleness of these two powerful men humbled her, and she was determined to show them the same tenderness and caring when they finally allowed her to take some control. For now, she was happy and willing to give them complete control over her.
She had never felt so cherished. She was hesitant to think it, but she truly felt for the first time in her life that she was deeply desired, and maybe even cared for.
She was aware of Alexander kissing his way down her body, and she opened her legs to him willingly as his massive shoulders spread her widely. She knew she should feel embarrassment at being so exposed, but she couldn’t think beyond the next kiss, the next touch. She wanted them both with a fierce desire that she could never have imagined. When Alex spread her legs and opened her sex, she couldn’t prevent the mew of frustration that escaped her as he did nothing but look at her.
Butler pulled away from her breast with a loud pop and looked down at Alex, growling at the immediate release of fluids that escaped her body. Reaching down, he gently caressed her mound and rubbed his palm against it as his middle finger followed a path down the slick opening of her body. He felt as if his chest would burst with happiness as Nikki pushed into his touch when he carefully inserted his finger deep within her.
“Butler,” she moaned as the thickness of his finger invaded her and pushed deep inside her. She loved the feel of him inside her and wanted more. It wasn’t enough.
“I have you, baby,” he whispered against her neck, just below her ear. “You’re so wet for us. Do you want us to fill you up?”
“Yes,” Nikki moaned as he pulled out of her slick passage to drag his coated finger up to her clit and rub it gently. “More, please.”
“Oh, sweetness, we’re going to give you so much more,” he promised, drawing his finger away and bringing it to his lips to suck it into his mouth. “You taste so good, Nikki,” he told her.
Before Nikki could answer, Alex nudged her clit with his nose as his tongue delved deep inside her and laved her with a ferocity that left her breathless. He growled at the pure joy of her response and latched onto the swollen bundle of nerves with a possessiveness that stole her breath away. Licking and drawing it into his mouth, he bit down on it lightly as he reached up and inserted two fingers deep inside of her, pumping slowly and curling his finger to touch the spot inside her that would make her soar.
