Description: Lucas McAndrews is handsome, charming and smart, all of which make his job as a sought-after gigolo that much easier. But when he and a friend are assaulted out of nowhere, Lucas calls the one man from whom he has no reason to expect help...Carver Eliot.
Two years ago, Lucas almost destroyed Carver's career, but Carver has a hard time holding a grudge. Lucas had been a great lay, and in the end had brought Carver to David Logan, his current lover and partner. So when Lucas calls, Carver's only hesitation is in telling David. To his surprise, it's David who invites Lucas into their home, challenging Carver's restraint and the fundamentals of their relationship.
But Carver isn't the only one tempted, as David must also face the limits of his experience and the needs of his body and heart. Ghosts of the past and threats of the present are soon the least of Carver and David's worries as Lucas wins his way into their bed.
Now, the only questions remaining are who will end up with whom...and who will end up dead...

"4.5 Nymphs!...Has a nice balance of action, suspense, and erotic encounters to keep you on the edge of your seat. Pick up a copy and enjoy."--Scandalous Minx, Literary Nymphs Reviews
"4 Syats!...A mystery/suspense novel, as well as M/M (and M/M/M) erotica, and is both complex and richly textured. Everything is not as it appears. India Harper (the writing team of Philippa Grey-Gerou and Emery Sanborne) has done an excellent job of character development with David and Carver over the three books in this series, and one can only hope that there are future plans for Lucas. Perhaps because it is a series, one feels that a few loose ends were not tied up in Sins Of Affection, which is only the more reason to look forward to the next book."--Carole, Rainbow Reviews
"...I enjoyed reading the way that the relationship shifts and settles again as the book progresses. I also liked the way that Lucas' presence in David's life forces him to open up to Carver about his life before he knew Carver. This shifting and upheaval was the most interesting aspect of the book, and I liked that the inclusion of a third in the relationship was not just a straightforward opening of arms...Those of you who have read and loved the Creatures of Sin series by this author (or these authors, as India Harper is a collaboration) will probably be thrilled at some of the relationship interplay in this book and a chance to revisit favorite characters. For myself, I enjoyed the well-written sexual tension and the complexities in the way that Carver and David cope with having Lucas in their lives, and would recommend Sins Of Affection to those readers who might also find those aspects of interest too."--Jenre, Reviews By Jessewave
The next few days passed in a fog of pain and drugs. Lucas was vaguely aware of Carver and David coming in and out, applying fresh ice packs or forcing soup down his throat, but beyond that, he slept, unaware of the passing time.
When he came to at last, it was morning three days later, according to his smartphone, and his bladder was screaming for relief.
He forced himself out of bed on weak legs and staggered into the adjoining bathroom. He didn't bother to try standing to relieve himself, sinking down on the toilet to do his business. When he finished, he staggered over to the sink to examine the damage.
It must have been a lot worse. The bruises were already shifting to a sickly greenish-yellow and thick, blackened scabs now protected the abrasions. He flexed his arm gingerly. He still had basic mobility, unless he overextended it. No bondage clients for the next few weeks until he got in a little physical therapy.
Lucas hadn't paid attention to the sliding door on the other side of the bathroom, presuming it to be a closet of some kind. He was noticing it now.
A hard slap sang through the room on the other side. "Not the right thing to say, Carver." David's voice was low and insistent, but Lucas could hear the need in it as well.
"Fuck me, David! Christ, just do it!" Carver didn't bother to keep his voice down, although it was muffled, as though his cheek were pressed against a pillow.
Lucas smiled as he edged closer to the partition, grateful that the simple act no longer hurt like hell. His cock stirred to full attention with the next resounding slap from the other room.
"I said don't move, Carver."
A derisive snort, then a breathless, "I'd like to see you not move--ow! Watch the hair!"
"That includes your mouth."
"You like it when I move my mouth. Especially when it's wrapped around you-- Oh, Jesus, fuck!"
