Description: Book two in the Circle of Three Series Jahzlyn Monroe is between things in life ... between jobs, between homes, between relationships. When she attends her cousin's Halloween party, she never expects to end up between two men. Literally. Naked. Jahz doesn't know who her masked lovers were, and as she struggles to find her direction in life, surrendering to a menage relationship at this crossroads seems unwise despite the burning desires plaguing her. Dressed as phantoms, Garrett Byrnam and Chay Harper expect fun at the party, but they never suspect they'll have the woman of their dreams in their arms before the night's end. When she disappears before they can reveal their identities and make their intentions clear, they know they'll be travelling their own rocky road as they set out to persuade Jahz, that she should surrender to pleasure in their arms--a pleasure that will be no phantom at all. This story has male male interaction as part of a polyamourous relationship and some BDSM play.

"Are you okay?" the man who'd put Andy down for the count asked.
She nodded as a police cruiser pulled in front of the house. Minutes later, they'd all given their statements and Andy was led away. She realised belatedly that the men who'd rescued her still had their arms around her, much like Kai and Brian had held Tam earlier. Self-consciously, she pulled her cape around her and stepped out of their casual embrace. Just standing that close to them had heated her skin and made her soft in places she didn't want to think about. And damp. Her chest rose and fell as she fought back her arousal.
She looked around the small group. Tam and her husbands had come hustling around the house just as Sheriff West had arrived. No one had removed their masks and everyone seemed to know everyone else. Jahz found herself at a supreme disadvantage.
"Are you sure you're okay?" Tam asked, just as Jahz was about to ask names.
"Yes, these two recued me just as Andy was getting out of hand." She looked at the black-dressed pair. "Thank you."
"You didn't make much of an effort with your costumes," Tam criticised Jahz's rescuers. "What are you supposed to be?"
Brian coughed, obviously covering a laugh. "Excuse her. Pregnancy hormones have made her really crabby."
"Who else are you going to tell?" his wife demanded. "You're so sleeping on the couch." She turned her glare on Kai.
"I didn't say anything," he defended with raised hands.
Jahz pressed her lips together to hide her smile at the exchange. She knew Tam well enough to know she wasn't upset with her men at all and Jahz had a feeling it would be one happy threesome in their bed that night.
A stab of jealousy swept through her, but she pushed it aside as she glanced at the other men from the corner of her eye. What would it be like to be loved like her cousin was? She sucked in a frustrated breath. She needed to stop this.
Tam turned back to the pair dressed in black. "What are you?" she repeated.
"We're dark phantoms," one of them laughed. "We swoop in under the cover of the night."
"Saving the day and whisking away the fair maiden," the other said.
Jahz yelped as she was suddenly swept over a solid, wide shoulder, while everyone else chuckled. "Tam! Help!" She smacked the back of the man. "Let me down!"
Her cousin stepped forward, following as Jahz was slowly carried away. Tam kissed her on the cheek. "You're perfectly safe," she whispered in Jahz's ear. "You were interested. There's no better pair to explore with. Relax and have fun." She paused and tilted her head. "Do you want them to let you go?"
Did she? Or did she want to see what this could be all about with two men who'd already proved themselves dashing rescuers. Tam trusted them...
She looked at the man following along with them. "Nothing I don't want?"
He smiled, displaying straight white teeth in stark contrast with his clothing and mask. "Nothing. We promise." He poked his partner. "We promise," he prompted.
"Ow! Damn it, Chay. I thought that was a given. Yes, of course I promise that." He turned back to the trio they'd left behind. "Congrats Coz! Congrats Tam and Brian!" Then he turned back the direction they'd been heading, leaving Jahz to stare helplessly back at her family.
Okay, the taller one was named Chay. This one carrying her was Kai's cousin, Garrett--he was damned strong and the play of his muscles beneath her body turned her on at a level she'd never imagined. His hand smoothed up her thigh and she realised the short black skirt she wore as part of her vampiress costume must have been pulled upward by her position. Cool, autumn air licked at the bottom of her ass and she wondered exactly how much of it was visible to anyone who cared to look. A lot, she concluded as his hand crept higher on her leg. And her thong didn't hide much. His fingers slipped inside, moving even closer to her pussy. Just another inch and he'd find out how hot she was...
He turned his face towards her hip. "Yes?" he asked, his voice a low rumble.
Oh God, yes. She'd needed to be touched since they'd captured her attention and given her quivers from across the backyard. Her forehead pressed to his back. She nodded, her face rubbing against his silk shirt. The warm muscle beneath heated her cheek.
Slowly, he moved his palm upward until the edge of his hand pressed to her burning sex. His thumb traced the lower crease of her ass, following the narrow strip of cloth covering her until he reached her pussy. Over and over he followed the same path, sending tremors through her and slick arousal from her. He had to know. He had to feel it. If she shook much more, she'd fall.
Anticipation of what might happen made her feel wanton. She'd never done anything like this. Despite Andy's accusation that she was 'after cock' the only one she'd ever had was Payton's and that hadn't been particularly good. And now, going off with two men who were essentially strangers. She'd always had a fantasy of being with a stranger--someone who'd treat her well and fuck her until she was lost in an oblivion of rapture with no ties. What a shock to have two such men!
They weren't quite strangers, but she didn't know them either. And since she planned to leave Cranston in a few days, she'd probably never see them again.
Take the adventure, Jahz. Make a few good memories to replace the bad.
It dawned on her through her fuzzy thoughts that they were heading to the house next door to Tam's--where Kai's cousin, Garrett, lived with his best friend, Chay. Well, duh.
Chay opened the front door and they all entered.
Garrett stopped teasing her as soon as the door closed. Aggressively, he pushed aside her soaked panties and two fingers plunged into her pulsating folds. She cried out, her body lifting with the pleasure. Chay adjusted her so that her hands were braced on his shoulders. His lips covered hers while Garrett continued to finger-fuck her. Chay's tongue pushed against hers as he absorbed her cries and explored her mouth. She tasted the wine he'd had at the party with a slight taste of mint and man. He cupped the back of her head, threading his hand into her hair and better angling her for his kiss. There was no denying his domination as he devoured her.
