Not In The Game

Not In The Game, Deleted Scenes from The Game, Virtus Saga Plus

From now on, I’ll treat you like a slave, a mere thing men and women will use for their pleasure alone. And you are to service whatever player I choose for I want to see how far I can take you, how much you’ll yield to sex for the sake of sex. Because you’re just an object, something they’ll discard as soon as they come, your body useless once they get exactly what they want from it.

When Prince Duncan Caldwell has to enter Cecilia Hurst’s Game of Masters and Slaves, he already knows he’ll have to play Master if he intends to retrieve the pyramid Cecilia stole from the sacred Nephis Valley. And his choice for a slave can only be Ylianor Meyer, however fiercely Lord Christopher Templeton resents her and her overpowering erotic intrusion in a trip that should’ve been his and Duncan’s alone. No, make that in a love that should’ve been his and Duncan’s alone!
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 simply pick up right where Book 1 The Sex leaves off. This book explodes it all—the lust and the leadership, but also the estrangement and the chaos. 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 continued it all—the love, the passion, the fiery sex, the intricate relationship, but mostly the unique connection followed by the unknown violence—as Prince Duncan Caldwell and his lover, Christopher Templeton, adjust to the insufferably sexy and irresistible intruder, Ylianor Meyer.

If you never read anything of the Virtus Saga, this would be an excellent place to start. Not just because the hot scorching sex sets off the jealousy and competition between the three amazing characters that are destined to forge their world with new life. More because it's the beginning of an unforgettable trio that will hook readers from page one with their heated passion and undying love for one another.

"Eroticism off the charts!" The Romance Reviews (TRR)
"I truly enjoyed this story. This world is fascinating and the author really does an incredible job of making it so tangible. The characters are developed so throughly, I feel like I know them, and the eroticism is off the charts. I know that this story is not finished, so I can't wait to see what's going to happen next!" The Romance Reviews (TRR) rated it 4 Stars

"If you're looking for an action-packed, dangerous adventure with engaging characters who are complex, flawed, and at times lovable, a plot that thickens with suspense and angst with the turn of every page, and enough smoking hot sex scenes to keep your body in a state of arousal for days on end, then The Game by Laura Tolomei is definitely the book to read." Blackraven's Reviews 

"Eroticism off the charts!" Romance at Heart

"For the second novel, Laura Tolomei persuades the reader to look closely at the relationship between Duncan and Ylianor as it has a special significance and shows a meeting of both past and present. Christopher is the one in the middle in this volume, and does not like being there; after all he enjoys being centre stage doling out his quips, and jibes to anyone who will listen, though even he has to be watched, and as Duncan knows controlled as he can be loose cannon if left to his own devices. There is enough humour, interesting dialogue, and enjoyment to be had for the reader to want to see what happens next in the book." Romance at Heart

"The continuing story of Prince Caldwell, his lover Chris Templeton, and the beautiful Ylianor
Meyer of whom completes the trio are back again with their second Virtus Saga. And The Game is on. Incredible concept. Intriguing fantasy world. Ideas aplenty. This is a complex series of love and consequences and The Game was hot. There were lots of hints as the characters' excitement for the

Festival (the next and third book) builds. What a great way to keep readers hooked and on the edge of their seats; dish it out in instalments, like a (fantasy) soap opera. In order to get the best out of this series, to see the full impact of the plot upon the players,  I suggest reading the complete series. They are not written to be stand alone stories and they do lead direct from one book into the next. So far. Luckily the third book, The Festival, is already out now!  Read at your peril in the hopes that the powers of Virt don't control you, too. Who knows what you'll get up to?" AR 



Erotic M/M Excerpt
“Boy, if this is any indication of how the Game is going to be, I can’t wait to start on the serious fun.” Legs falling down, Chris freed him.
“And the serious sex.” Duncan dropped next to him.
“Do you know of any other kind of fun?” Chris pressed his body closer.
“And just whom were you planning to have this fun with?” Baiting him on purpose, Duncan dragged him nearer.
“Troy of course.” Rolling on a side, Chris was quick to clasp his not so limp equipment. “Then there’s John and Paul, just in case I want to expand my horizons.”
“Or have them expand yours.” With the warm palm circling his cock, his senses could not help stirring.
“And what’s wrong with that?”
PG Excerpt
“Who is Cecilia Hurst?” And why don’t I give a damn about her, only about Prince Duncan Caldwell and his phase mate, Lord Christopher Templeton?
Oh, fuck!
If she could just concentrate on piecing together the sketchy information gathered at the Nephis Valley and find the stolen heart, she would be the happiest woman alive. Instead, Ylianor Meyer’s attention kept shifting on the two gorgeous men riding by her side, which made it unproductive to focus on anything besides the scorching memories of their stay in the pledge’s sacred valley and their consequent hurried escape from it.
If it had been a spell, which she hoped it had not, it could not have happened with two more breathtaking creatures than the one she had loved all her life, and the one she had come to appreciate after weeks spent traveling together.
Under her eyelashes, she stole a peak at her prince. Slightly older than his shiny blond phase mate, the very masculine Duncan Caldwell had raven black hair, falling down to his shoulders, dancing black eyes, a chiseled face with a square jaw over a tall, powerful, well-built frame with muscles rippling at every movement. Yes, he was impossibly gorgeous and impossibly taken, too, given how much he loved the very striking and very smug Lord Christopher Templeton.
Who was a real demon, no question about it, had been ever since he had walked into Black Rose with a load of rage and fury so great it would have annihilated anyone. Though not him, the eight-year-old boy that looked like an angel and had the core of a demon.
Goddamn him and his regular features with that aristocratic nose, the short thick hair flashing brighter than Stella’s rays and those intriguing blue-gray eyes she found hard to read at times. 
Erotic M/M/F Excerpt
“What do you say we make it more difficult for her?”
“For her?” Seemed to him, he and Duncan were in serious trouble just because she was there. “What do you have in mind?” Resigned to have the fastidious woman torment him also during his favorite activity, Chris groaned. 
Erotic BDSM Excerpt
“Nothing like her mouth, right?” Ironic, Duncan’s tone was vaguely mocking, “Is that why you’re digging so hard in it our cocks will meet in the middle sooner or later?”
“Just having fun, lover.” To mark his point, Chris lifted his hips in a particularly vicious impact that had the tip of his erection slipping past her throat.
“By suffocating her?” At her coughs, Duncan yanked back her head to give her space to breathe.
And not a moment too soon!
“Yes, if that’s what it takes.” Undaunted, Chris snatched her back down. “At least it makes for a more exciting blowjob.”
“Not to mention more exclusive,” Duncan observed. “Since it would be a one-time deal.”
“Works for me.” Sure it would, considering how much the despicable fiend wanted to get rid of her!
“Not for me, since we still need her to get into Cecilia’s Game.” Screwing more of his length inside, Prince Caldwell spread her buttocks apart. “Unless you’d be willing to take her place and play slave—”
“She’s breathing! She’s breathing!”  
Erotic BDSM Excerpt
“I don’t need proof.” If he did not rush to follow Chris to the door, it was because he wanted to take her with him.
He did not particularly relish Chris’s habit of leaving her out in the cold or of having her just watch. And even if she liked to be a mere spectator while they fucked, it was still no excuse to keep her on the sideline as much as Chris pretended. If he had not challenged it so far, it was because both him and Chris were discovering just how truly arousing this new twist was.
Which was no reason to allow it to get out of hand.
