[Ménage Amour: Erotic Paranormal Ménage a Trois Romance, M/F/M, shape-shifter]
Lina’s finally getting the hang of being mated to twin Elemental dragon shifters, but the Goddess gig still has her stumped. She wouldn’t trade being mated to Jan and Rick Alexandr, even though she might end up accidentally blowing them up for getting on her nerves.
When Lina, her Watcher, and their dragon mates are summoned to Yellowstone National Park for a shifter Gathering, Lina never anticipates she’d soon become fast friends with Brodey Lyall, a wolf shifter. She senses Brodey’s deep grief over a recent loss, but that’s the least of their problems.
An ancient foe with an old grudge threatens to destroy everything Lina holds dear. Now it’s up to Brodey to outsmart a homicidal, psychopathic chicken bent on revenge. Can Brodey safely reunite Lina with her men, or will a forest fire and Yellowstone’s harsh elements prove too much for even the wily wolf shifter to overcome?
Note: There is no sexual relationship or touching for titillation between or among siblings.
A Siren Erotic Romance
5 DELIGHTFUL DIVAS, RECOMMENDED READ: "Steam by Tymber Dalton had me reading nonstop from cover to cover; I just could not put it down. There was so much going on that the book held my interest. The heroine, Lina, is the star of Steam. The more I read this book, the more her character came to life for me. She always ends up in the most interesting of places. I, for one, cannot wait to see where Ms. Dalton places her next. All the rest of the characters were just as amazing...Ms. Dalton always makes sure the characters and plot line connect with her readers. Steam is a book worth reading and adding to your reading library. Tymber Dalton is truly sizzling! Whatever the genre, she will always capture your attention." -- Deb, Dark Diva Reviews
"Fast paced, yet superbly detailed, Steam heats up the pages in this action packed drama. Author Tymber Dalton skillfully blends two previous storylines and their characters from a couple of her very popular series with satisfying results. Steam can be enjoyed as a standalone story, even with this large cast of known characters. Steam has some truly hot moments between Lina and her guys, but the emotional aspect, along with the intense drama, is what makes this tale so good!" -- Lisa, Joyfully Reviewed
Lina’s heart fluttered at the sight of her dragon shifter mate. Wavy blond hair, ice blue eyes, pale skin, and a drool-worthy bod. Janek Svarog Alexandr formed the ice and earth half of the Elemental twin brothers. Usually the calmer and more level-headed brother, his temperament fitted his elements. He poured himself a mug of coffee, then leaned in and brushed a cool kiss along the back of Lina’s neck.
“Good morning, lovely,” he murmured, sliding into the chair next to her.
“There’s a Gathering next week,” Kael informed him.
Jan leaned forward and rested his forehead on the table. “Nooo.”
Kael smirked. “Oh, yes.”
“What’s wrong?” Lina asked.
Kael grinned. “You want to tell her?”
Jan shook his head without lifting it. “I don’t need this shit right now.” He finally sat up and looked at her. “I know you’ve been wanting to meet our family, but I was hoping for a less…”
“Overwhelming?” Kael helped out.
Jan shot him a dirty look. “Busy venue.”
Lina felt a surge of agitation wash through her. She clamped down on it. Until she knew what havoc her newest batch of powers could wreak, it was best she not get upset. “Answers, please.”
Kael didn’t speak. Jan sighed and turned to Lina, lacing his fingers through hers. His touch, as usual, felt comfortably cool. “A Gathering is like a business meeting, family reunion, political summit, and sometimes a speed-dating session all rolled into one.”
“Then what’s the big deal?”
“It’s all shifters. Not only dragon shifters. Canines, felines—everyone. Most of the shifter races will send representatives.”
“Whoa.” She tried to absorb that information. Before now, she’d specifically told them not to overwhelm her with too many shifter details over the past eight months. Especially since she’d taken over Callaway and Associates following her former boss Edgar’s impalement at the bottom of her pool after he tried to kill all three of her men. Zack being one of “her men” as far as she was concerned. “Canines? You mean…werewolves?”
Kael cleared his throat. Jan shot him a dirty look. “No, not werewolves. Don’t call a wolf shifter that, they’re liable to go batshit on you. Werewolves are totally different.”
She closed her eyes and took a deep breath. “Okay, back to the topic at hand. I have to drop everything and traipse out to Yellowstone for this Gathering? Why can’t you guys go? We’ve got five huge commercial jobs right now.” Callaway and Associates was the architectural design firm where the Alexandr brothers met Lina when they went for a consultation on building their house.
“Goddess has to go,” Zack snarked. “You’re sort of going to be the dragon shifters’ star attraction.”
“Zack!” Kael and Jan sharply scolded him.
Lina’s jaw clenched. “Don’t. Call me. That.” She didn’t care what the stupid prophecies and Baba Yaga said, she didn’t feel like a friggin’ goddess.
She felt like a woman about to lose her mind.
Rick appeared in the kitchen doorway. “What’d Zack do this time?” He leaned in and kissed Lina with lips that felt scorching hot on his way to pour himself a cup of coffee. Jarek Stribog Alexandr’s straight black hair, warm amber eyes and tan skin set him drastically apart from his twin brother. The fire and air half of the Elemental twins, his hot, quick temper matched his hot, hard body. Yet for Lina, he would turn himself inside out to make her happy. Both brothers would.
“He’s busting Lina’s chops before she’s had a full pot of coffee,” Kael said.
Rick laughed. “Dude, that’s seriously asking for trouble.” He sat on Lina’s other side. “What’s going on?”
Kael filled them all in. A huge shifter Gathering, to be held at Yellowstone National Park that week. The Elders of their dragon shifter flagyer decreed attendance was mandatory.
“They want to meet Lina,” Kael said. “And perform your binding Ceremony.”
Lina sat up. “Our what?”
“It’s like a—” Kael was drowned out by the other three men suddenly being struck by coughing fits.
She glared at Jan, then Rick. “What did you say, Kael?”
Rick, a man she’d never seen scared, looked horrified. “Nothing.”
“Right, nothing,” Jan agreed.
The fact that the two brothers readily agreed to anything other than the fact that they loved her heart and soul made her immediately suspicious. She looked at Kael. “It’s like a what?”
“WHAT?” The dragon shifter men eased their chairs away from the table in preparation to run.
Only Zack held his ground. “Sweetie, it’s a dragon thing.”
“I don’t give a shit what the hell it is, nobody’s marrying me off just because some old fart dragons say so!”
This had been a major point of contention for Lina throughout her unconventional relationship with the brothers. The State of Florida decreed only one man and one woman could be married. Knowing her two men, they would kill each other before giving ground and voluntarily allowing the other to become Mr. Pavlina Zaria. Therefore, she’d decided neither would marry her. She hyphenated their last name to hers, and they’d each given her a beautiful ring—she’d made them draw straws for which ring would go on which hand so it was totally fair—but that’s as far as she’d go. She didn’t need a wedding certificate to prove her love for her men, or theirs for her.
Inside, Rick and Jan didn’t speak as she closed the door behind her and sat on the double bed. A tight squeeze, but since they would only be there six days, she figured she’d manage.
“I won’t blow anything up,” she promised.
The men relaxed and smiled before sitting next to her on the bed. “Sorry,” Jan apologized. “Zack warned us to keep our mouths shut until you were safely settled.”
“Yeah,” Rick agreed. “Who says we never listen to him?”
She fell back on the bed and closed her eyes. Rick and Jan stretched out beside her. “I’m so tired. Please tell me we can sleep late?”
Jan reached over and tucked her hair behind her ear. “Yep. Nothing until after lunch tomorrow.”
At that, her stomach growled. “Right on cue,” she grumbled.
Rick laughed and rested his palm over her tummy. “You want us to bring you something, or you want to go eat? They’re having a buffet over in the lodge in an hour.”
As tired as she felt, she still wanted to see a little of the place. “I’ll go.” She looked at Rick, his warm, amber eyes focused on her. Then she turned her head and looked at Jan. Ice blue eyes meant only for her. “You know, I’m not liable to set fire to anything right now.”
Jan smiled and traced her jaw with his finger. “Well, at twenty thousand feet, we didn’t want to take any chances.”
“Not that we think you’re out of control,” Rick hastily added, “but we know flying was stressful—”
“And since the Goddess of making grown men shit their pants isn’t sure where the off button is on her freaky new powers, yadda yadda. I know.” She smiled. “It’s okay. Did you say an hour?”
Jan nuzzled his lips along the side of her neck, finding the spot behind her ear that melted her. “An hour to have some relaxing fun.”
Rick needed no coaxing. He slipped his hand under her shirt. “Maybe we could relax you two or three times.”
She loved these two guys despite how much they sometimes frustrated her. She hooked a leg around Rick’s thigh and kissed him. Behind her, Jan nibbled the nape of her neck with sinfully cool lips, making her shiver.
Working together, the men quickly stripped her of her clothes before shedding their own. Who said they can’t work together like a well-oiled team? she thought, suppressing a smile. Rick lowered his mouth to her left breast, teasing and sucking her nipple. Jan’s hand slipped down her body, between her legs.
She rolled over and wrapped her lips around Rick’s cock, which tasted sinfully warm and sweet in her mouth.
He moaned as he gently fisted her hair. “Oh, Jesus baby, you know I love that!”
She swirled her tongue around the head, swiping along his slit and exploring the ridge. He sucked in a sharp breath as she tasted his salty pre-come. “You keep that up, I’ll explode,” he warned.
Lina lifted her lips from his cock but licked down the sides where she palmed his sac and ran her tongue along it, teasing him the way she knew he loved.
Blindly groping, her hand found Jan’s cool cock and she wrapped her fingers around it and tugged until he moved closer. She grabbed Rick’s cock and held it, keeping him in place as she turned her attention to Jan.
His stiff shaft felt cool in her mouth as she explored it with her tongue, his taste subtly different but still as good. Rick’s hand slid down her back, between her ass cheeks, until he plunged two warm fingers into her drenched pussy and stroked.
Lina moaned around Jan’s shaft, prompting a moan in reply. “Oh, babe, that’s so fucking good!”
She laved her tongue over his cock and balls, then switched back to Rick once she brought Jan close to the edge. Back and forth she alternated between warm and cool until both hard cocks pulsed in her hands, desperate for release.
The next time she engulfed Rick’s cock, Jan broke free and changed position to kneel behind her. “You’re a tease, lovely. I can’t take this anymore. I need to fuck you or I’m going to lose my mind.”
Rick’s hands plunged into her hair again as he rocked his hips against her. “Hurry up,” he said, his voice tight. “I want to finish inside her.” He made her let go of his cock and shifted position so he could again suck one of her nipples into his mouth. He nipped at her, making her moan as more hot sparks shot straight to her clit.
Jan’s hard cock brushed against her ass. She wiggled herself into position until she felt the thick, cool head pressing against her wet pussy.
Rick switched to her other breast, using his hand to continue teasing the first. Then Jan rocked his hips, sinking his cock all the way to the hilt inside her, making her moan. He rolled them onto their sides so she faced Rick.
Jan’s fingers stroked her clit, knowing when to torment and when to relent. The cool sensation in sharp contrast to her hot body slowly drew her closer to release.
“You gonna come for us, baby?” Jan whispered in her ear. “I want to feel your sweet pussy squeezing me when you do.”
