She is the one woman they both need. If they can catch her. Ethan Stone and Gabriel Pryor are successful, wealthy, handsome—and single. But not for long. As Colony descendants, they are required to form a mated triad with a woman with Colony bloodlines—or they’ll be forced to do the unthinkable. Move back inside the community’s walls and accept whomever the elders choose. When their hired P.I. comes through with a candidate, they’re both relieved—and in a rush to close the deal. Except their chosen lady’s bloodline comes with a streak of independence as quicksilver fast as her bike messenger pedals. Ordinarily, a big tip and amorous note wouldn’t impress Mariella Amorini, but there’s something that draws her to the two men she can’t explain. The shocking truth of her heritage sends her reeling—straight into the safe harbor of Ethan and Gabriel’s bed. The sense of belonging is warm, and the sex is hot, but as more truths become entangled with lies, it’s clear someone from The Colony isn’t the least bit interested in the threesome’s long-term happiness. And it’ll take revealing their deepest vulnerabilities to forge a bond strong enough to endure the test. Warning: Two alpha males looking for their mate. One sassy bike messenger who’s not entirely certain she fits the description. Seduction tactics include wine, dessert, Cary Grant movies, heartfelt confession, laughter, kissing, and sex. Lots of really hot sex.
