Prisoner of their whims, it was impossible to resist them further. With a shock of pleasure, she realized they were her masters—not just one, but both—to which she surrendered herself, body first, juggled upward and sideways, until she had no choice but to ride their tide, swept along with their passion, swelling uncontrollably as they drove her into bliss, her convulsions sucking them to the balls and squeezing them dry.

When Ylianor Meyer throws in Prince Duncan Caldwell’s face his generous offer to adopt her into the Caldwell family, she has only one thought in mind—to get as far away from the stunningly gorgeous dark-haired prince and his equally striking blond-haired lover, Lord Christopher Templeton before she falls in love with them harder than she already is. Before she becomes their slave for real and surrenders to both without any shame. For each is a master in his own standing: one for pleasure, the other for pain.

Such is the new setting of the Virtus Saga, where nothing is what it seems. Not since soul-mates Prince Duncan Caldwell and Lord Christopher Templeton share a love that is unrivaled, until that fateful knock on Ylianor Meyer’s dilapidated shack changes everything forever.

This book doesn’t just pick up right where Book 2 The Game and Book 1 The Sex leave off. This book extends it all—the love and the passion, but also the torrid sex and bloody nightmares. Mostly the unique connection laced with a load of jealousy and violence that is unknown to their world. Because this isn’t just another erotic dark fantasy series. This is the making of a trio. The story of three remarkable characters that have to overcome their uncontrollable lust to face the truth about themselves and their planet, in order to defeat the darkness about to devour them. To be as one whilst three! That’s their real challenge. Because, if they can’t learn to share power and love in equal measures, how will they be able to ensure their world’s survival?
This isn’t just another erotic dark fantasy series.
This is the making of a trio. Because "US IS SEX!"

The book that continues it all—the reunion, the connection, but also the blood, the separation and the victory. The third chapter seals a destiny started with the first chapter, however its ending.

Erotic BDSM Excerpt

“All right, sleeping beauty, stop where you are and take your dress off.” He sneered. “Wouldn’t want to ruin his gift, now would we?”
She started to turn around, but…

“Just take the damn thing off where you are,” he snarled annoyed.

Frozen in her tracks, Ylianor had a second’s hesitation before she began removing the sexy dress. Then as if to defy him, she moved the long, silky hair over her shoulder, so he had the full view of her bare back and ass.
Breathing heavily, his gaze fixed on the shape of her butt, always a magnificent sight no matter how many times he had seen it already. As if feeling his eyes on it, she wriggled it provocatively. “No, your ass isn’t going to make me change my mind about your fate.” < Read full BDSM erotic excerpt >


Erotic M/M Excerpt

"Love gone wrong hurts so goddamn much, but it’s nothing compared to the pains of repressing its memory." Duncan Caldwell

"Test your beliefs against who you’re becoming." Duncan Caldwell
"You need to consider people as human beings and not as genders or categories." Duncan Caldwell
“Can you honestly tell me there’s someone else, besides her, who with a mere glance, turns on that dark, cruel side of yours, which you’ve taken so much pain to keep hidden even from me?”
From the annoyed frown, Duncan knew he had touched his angel’s raw and burning spot, another victory in the undeclared war they were fighting, which made him harder than he had ever been.
“You fucking bastard, do you think you’re in any better position?” Sliding his butt forward, Chris sucked the entire erection straight up the ass, leaving only the balls out, but just barely. “Do you think I don’t know how badly you want to pledge to her? Or how much you’d give to be in my shoes rather than having to pass as her brother for the rest of your life?”

Erotic Excerpt
“Hush, Demon.” With two strides, she reached him. “You don’t have to apologize.” One hand flew to his face, to stroke his cheek. The other raked through his thick blond hair. “I’ve been jealous, too.” And the admission sounded less painful than she had expected.
Liberating in a way, because it had been a load pressing on her chest that she had clung to for far more than necessary.
And as soon as she let it go, she felt the beginning of something new connecting them, something far deeper and more precious than anything they had shared thus far.
Not that she had any chance to realize what it was exactly.
Chris bending and kissing her senseless kind of messed with her awareness. Not just on the account of his tongue ravaging her mouth and sticking down her throat. Mostly because he circled her waist and crushed her against his crotch.
So she went for him. And his reactions be damned!
It was high time Christopher Templeton acknowledged there was something at work between them that went beyond Prince Duncan Caldwell. < Read full erotic excerpt >

PG Excerpt
Wrenching Chris by an arm, Duncan led him to a small and quite empty room, pinning him to the wall as soon as he closed the door. “What sick game are you playing with her?”
“Game?” The glue-gray eyes blazed. “I—”
“Be very careful of what you’re about to say, Angel,” he threatened softly. “If I find out you’ve hurt her in any way—”
“I did more than that.” The blue-gray eyes now shone in open dare. “But she loved it. That’s for sure.”
“I don’t believe you.” Not after what he had seen on her beautiful face.
“Then ask her.” Chris, instead, seemed to have no doubts. “I believe it’s no problem for you to find out right now.”
What if he’s right? < Read full excerpt >

"For one who can certainly create an interesting story, Laura Tolomei gives readers a first hand look at an unusual relationship that has the potential to either turn sour, or produce three contented individuals who make it work, and Christopher regardless of his feelings of hatred, and jealousy toward her, he has to please his lover, Duncan by letting him take her to their bed for them all to enjoy.

It made me needs to want the three of them to be happy in some small way and stop their constant bickering long enough to enjoy their love.

"Christopher Templeton is joint leader along with Prince Duncan Caldwell, and Christopher is an extremely handsome male specimen who by his lover's confession could have anyone he wants as he is tall, elegant, desirable, and has a lithe body that exudes sex from every pore. He loves Duncan with all his heart, yet is annoyed when he wants to bring another woman, Ylianor into their bed, and their already steamy relationship. Christopher has a very jaded view of women, and Ylianor in particular believing them to be unpredictable and fickle, and is under the impression he does not need one in his life. Once Christopher has been left with Ylianor for a while at Blue Oasis, he sees her in a different way, she is not the clinging vine he thought she was originally, and thinks he might have misjudged her. That does not mean his view of her as an interloper has changed, no, he had already made up his mind to loathe her being there, even though he only wants what is best for his lover. A lover of Arthur Fairchild, his former leader, it is interesting that Christopher decided to keep it in the family by being Duncan's lover also. He has a secret resentful streak in his personality he has to try and keep in check, hoping that his lover will not notice. He does have a kind nature, but it is hidden beneath jibes and insults about the woman in Duncan's life.  A handsome man with a huge ego in many ways, Christopher could never imagine anyone being in their bed but Duncan, and he hates to share his love with someone else, especially another woman. He normally likes to keep them at a distance rather than get involved with them and finds it awful that his lover might actually fall for Ylianor. This is set to break their relationship up as he cannot make compromises and is pretty much stubborn about the fact he sees Duncan as his, and his alone. Love is a serious thing where Christopher is concerned, and his obsessive ways have got worse since his lover let Ylianor enter their bedroom. Christopher is a highly sexed type who loves nothing more than to make-love to his male lover which means guilt plays a large part in their relationship at the moment. Christopher is capable of hurting men with his cruelty, and Ylianor has felt the sharp edge of his blade at her throat before, so there is no love lost between them both. His feelings

for hurting others could be blamed on his Virt, his power, but could it be that, or just an excuse to use his power and jealousy to fuel his deep seated hatred? "  Romance at Heart

"The most gripping part of the story for me was the whole combining of powers that seems to happen when the prince, Chris, and Yilanor come together. Sexually, they are exploring each other in every

way imaginable. There is m/m, m/f, m/m/f, and even f/f sex in this book. I guess that's to be expected when you find your power through intercourse. But I found that the sexuality and eroticism flow along with the story. It was fascinating to see the trio navigate this whole new facet of their
lives--this power they have--and explore the ways they can use the power sexually. Much more fascinating even was how they found that because of the sexual exploration, they were able to better relate to each other outside of sex as well." The Romance Reviews (TRR) rated it 4 Stars

Not my fault her ass is so damn accommodating!
