Tempted by Two by Anya Bast was a very good read. This is my fourth foray into her Ms. Bast’s paranormal novels. If you enjoy novels where there are two hot heroes that are fated to be with one woman, then you would enjoy this novel. Or not. Hopefully, you will if you enjoy such stories. I know I didn’t at first.
This story is apart of an established series that centers around the Tylwyth Teg fae. I started with this title since it was a new release and didn’t feel lost. Our protagonist, Miranda, while out to dinner with friends sees something rather unusual. One of her dinner friends, Theo, happens to be there when Miranda finds herself seeing things that shouldn’t exist like…goblins. Opportunity presents itself for Theo to explain to Miranda what she truly is and her connection to him and another man, Marco. However, Miranda isn’t having any of it. Miranda carries some heavy baggage and for these anomalies to present themselves now is rather disconcerting. Being the concerned friend, Theo tries to help Miranda understand her heritage or her Fae blood and her eventual role in the lives of not one man but two.
Meanwhile Theo tries to keep Miranda’s existence from Marco, the other important person in their Triad. Theo is possessive at first but eventually things work themselves out in the end as all things do. The men try to be patient with Miranda and end up convincing her to spend the weekend with them. A weekend of total sexual submission. I really liked Marco more than Theo but both men are hot. Marco is just the type of hero I like who is rather passionate and a bad ass. Theo is the more romantic, level headed one.
Again, this novel is apart of an established series. The paranormal aspect of the story went right over my head. The culture, behavior, heritage of the Tylwyth Teg fae is told briefly but seems rather weak to me. Both men had been desperate to find their third for years and when they finally find her in Miranda, they try to convince her of their love and combat her fear of commitment. Miranda’s parents were not perfect examples of happily ever after as her mother was a victim of domestic violence.
I stated earlier that menage a trois stories are not my thing but it just goes to show you that in the hands of a talented author, you’ll read almost anything. This was a B+ read.
