Monica Allen has always been attracted to younger men. She even married one. But after the divorce, she thought she was through with them for good. Then she meets a group of ladies at RomantiCon, and they form a blog celebrating younger men, Tempt the Cougar.
After another lonely Friday night, Monica challenges her friends to each find a younger man to make their fantasies come true. She doesn’t have to marry him-been there, done that, threw away the t-shirt. But for a night of hot sex? Hell yes.
But Sam Lincoln refuses to be just a fantasy. He’s a graduate student with a yen for older women and he may have just found the one to make his own fantasies come true. With a little help from his roommate Josh, Sam fulfills Monica’s deepest desires. Can he convince this sexy cougar to give him a chance at happily ever after?
Gregory Anderson has reluctantly returned to England after more than seven years sailing the world and cataloging new discoveries. Half Polynesian Gregory is caught between two worlds. He isn’t looking for love. He’s only looking for a warm body with a modicum of wit and reasonable intelligence to help him get through the few short months he’ll be in England.
Nat and Alecia Digby married when they were younger and foolish. An arranged marriage to please their parents led them to take lovers, and their marriage was almost ruined before it began. They don’t want to give up the erotic games they learned to play and to enjoy, but they won’t risk their marriage again by falling in love with someone else.
When the three are introduced by a mutual friend they think it will be nothing more than a night or two of shared pleasure and erotic thrills. But the unthinkable happens, because love refuses to be forced into exile.
Well, this book features new characters. But don’t panic, we see almost all the characters from previous books, and Daniel Steinberg and Simon Gantry are major secondary characters in the book. The hero, Gregory Anderson, is a character that had been floating around in my head for a while. Gregory is half-Polynesian. His father sailed with Captain James Cook in the Pacific, and his mother was a native of the Friendly Islands, modern Tonga. I’ve been dying to incorporate that idea into an historical-one of the new breed of men that were born of the explorers who sailed the world in the eighteenth century. It fascinates me.
Gregory’s love interests in the book are a married couple. The storyline is a little different than what you might be used to in a BIA, but I think you’ll find the same passion and intensity in this story as in the others. Gregory’s issues don’t necessarily stem from the war, although he is a veteran, but from his “otherness” and the feeling of not belonging anywhere. Nat and Alecia Digby feel the same way, for different reasons. There is also a significant age difference between them. Gregory is in his late thirties and Nat and Alecia are in their mid-twenties.
