Stand and Deliver

Bored and drunk Lucien Mayer, Earl of Ravensberry is held up at gunpoint and robbed. When he challenges the highwaymen to a fight he ends up as their hostage. Meeting them face-to-face he finds that the grieving Ambrosius is too much to resist but his attraction to the brooding Dante is just as strong.

Torn between the two men is hard on him. He does try to escape but its back to Ambrosius he finds himself heading. Dante though won't let him forget about him as well.

Lucien is torn between these two men and doesn’t know which way to turn. Can he find love with the right man or will he loose his heart?

Stand and Deliver has a dark and violent storyline. I was drawn in and wanted to find out whom Lucien would choose. The love scenes could have a been a lot hotter if they had been a true Ménage à Trois. Overall I thought the love scenes just came off as ok and not exceptional. Those readers who like dark love scenes should try this book out.
