Welcome to Part I of BLI’s new four part series:

“Kink in Erotic Romance: Guilty Pleasure or Forbidden Fruit?”

This weeks segment is entitled:

Ménage à Many Your Cup-of-Tea or No?

We are chatting about (you guessed it) ménage themes in romance and I’m thrilled to welcome and offer a big thank you to Mary, our special guest visiting from Mary’s Naughty Whispers Blog!

First, just a little info about the series:

      • This will be a biweekly event during February and March.
      • There is a Giveaway opportunity and all the details noted below!
      • Every 2 weeks there will be different topics/thems discussed related to Kink in Erotic Romance!
      • And for the last 2 posts in March we will be welcoming a special guest author!!

Undercover by Lauren Dane

I’m not a huge fan of ménage themes, in fact I’ve gotten extremely picky recently regarding this theme. However, I do have some favorite ménage reads. One stand-out is Lauren Dane’s Undercover, the first book in her Federation Chronicles Science Fiction/Futuristic series published in 2008. Heroes Ash & Brandt are strong Alpha’s and I loved the relationship development with kick-ass heroine Sera. Lauren Dane also incorporated a D/S theme in this storyline which, I felt suited the involved characters.

Sometimes I find a paranormal or science fiction genre romance with a ménage works better because this type of complex relationship is woven into the societal structure. That being said, I’ve read and enjoyed contemporary ménages as well. Jaci Burton’s Riding the Night was a memorable read and I think part of the appeal is that there is a lovers reacquainted theme imbedded in the storyline between two of the protagonists. Also, Jaci Burton’s ability to craft sexy, non-offensive love scenes has always impressed me. In other words, as with all readers, the author’s voice must work for me. 😉

Given my reading tastes, I thought it would be best to ask a reader who enjoys romances that embrace relationships with multiple partners to share her experience with us. I found Mary on Twitter a while back and recently followed the breadcrumbs to her wonderful blog where she exclusively reviews ménage stories. Mary is an extremely prolific reader who hosts an active, fun site. She has kindly agreed to answer a few questions regarding ménage themes in romance and has some insights to share with veteran readers as well as newbies to stories that embrace these complex relationships! 🙂

So, without further adieu I’m going to hand the mic to Mary who has some awesome insights to share!

Lea: Mary! Welcome to Book Lovers! Thank you so much for agreeing to share your time with us today!

Mary: It’s a pleasure to be here with you and your wonderful readers!

Lea: Do you read ménage stories exclusively Mary? Or do you mix up your romance reading a little and review ménage romances solely at Naughty Whispers?

Mary: I do read ménage stories exclusively. The stories must involve multiple males and one woman.

I do make some rare exceptions. Charlaine Harris is one of them with her Sookie Stockouse series, although we could consider her series as a love triangle. I would add also Laurell K. Hamilton, but here as well her two series, Anita and Merry Gentry, involve multiple partners.

Lea: What is it that you find so appealing about ménage themes in erotic romance?

Mary: I am fascinated by how several different people interact with each other. I think with two people it is already difficult and full of concessions, so just imagine how much more complicated it can be when there is a third partner, if not more, in the relationship.

Riding The Night by Jaci Burton

I think the more people involved, the more complicated the relationship is. All the insecurities and emotions, like jealousy for example, are amplified.

We are also visual individuals and voyeurism in ménage erotica plays a big part as well as sharing our feelings. Being part of a ménage needs a lot of reassurance, tolerance and commitment as well as a great sense of communication. I do not read a ménage for the sex scenes but I would lie saying that it does not add brownies in the story! Unfortunately, most authors are not kinky enough in ménage stories, and they mix a lot BDSM with light bondage or think that the kinkiest sex scene ever is the one on the kitchen table or the dual penetration at the epilogue. There is a little lack of imagination most of the time but when an author knows how to write them, it is just the perfect finishing touch to the story.

Some MF authors will put the sex in #1 position, some will put the relationship #1 and for some it will be the plot. With ménage. authors, it is the same but they are even more challenged because they must include the multiple partners factor in each sex or relationship or plot! I believe that an author must be very talented to write this subgenre.

My idea of what makes a ménage a must read is this:

Characters = relationship = plot = sex

All of the above must be equally developed. Credibility and time factor must always be in the front of each story. If you read my reviews, that is and always will be my pet peeves!

In general, I consider a must read ménage when the author know what she/he is talking about. For example, If they write about BDSM, they must know the difference between a sub vs a slave or bondage (cuffs and blindfolds) vs BDSM lifestyle. A Dom is not a temporary status. But a male can have some dominant attitude in the bedroom.

I always feel it when an author put her/his soul into the story and that makes the read so very special.

Although it is very rare that I dislike a book completely. It happens but rarely. I always find something good in a ménage romance. This subgenre fascinates me, plain and simple.

Their Virgin’s Secret

Lea: Do you prefer the HEA in the story to include all three or four of the people involved in the relationship or can you handle it when, say, one of the guys walks away at the end?

Mary: Oh, definitely a HEA with everyone involved in the relationship! I need to know they will all receive equal love, equal sex and equal attention. I always feel frustrated when the third is just a sex toy. I am only satisfied if they are all together and profess their love in the end. No swigging, no swapping either.

Lea: If one of the people in the relationship does choose a separate path I like it when there is a sequel and we can find out what happens to him. Do you like that type of scenario or do you prefer standalone novels in a ménage? If so why?

Mary: I have a very very bad habit. I always start off by reading the last 3 pages of the books I intend to read. If the story does not end HEA for all parties, then I put the story aside for a later date, which usually never comes.

So to answer your question, it happened, not many times though, but somehow I felt cheated. I am really not fond of this type of ending.

When I read a ménage, I need to fall in love with the characters. So if one of them leaves or is not involved permanently at the end of the story, I feel like it was just a sex story, no longer a romance.

Forbidden Pleasure by Lora Leigh

Lea: See, oddly enough, I don’t mind when the third person in the relationship walks away at the end. As long as it is understood from the beginning. Like a one night of passion scenario. But, I do like it when that third person gets his own story. 😉

I always find that a ménage works better for me when the involved parties have been friends before their relationship evolves into a threesome. Do you find this as well, or does it strictly depend on the author’s relationship development?

Mary: It depends on so many different things. I am not so sure about being friends before. For me, it is less credible that, after many years of friendship, all of a sudden, friends want to share a woman. So I will answer your question with a no. I prefer when all the parties do not know each other. It creates more conflicts, more emotions, more insecurities, more passion. That’s the way I see it.

I also think that it depends on the author’s talent and the ability to provide some high maintenance personalities. It also depends if the male characters are straight or bisexuals.

On top of everything else, I like to be surprised and kept on my toes. Unfortunately, when the males are friends, very often it is the same story: one or both had a terrible childhood, so they became as close as brothers. They became therefore inseparable. And that’s hardly original and too widespread in recent stories.)

Lea: Do you have a preference between ménage à trois, or ménage à quatre?

One-Two Punch by Katie Allen

Mary: Or ménage à cinq, or six…lol

Yes. I much prefer more than 3 people involved. I truly think that the more characters involved, the more interesting is the relationship. It’s like in a team: if you do not work or play together, nothing will work. Different personalities mean more emotional involvement.

Somehow, I also think that in such relationships, you can have the best of all. I love cuddles so one male can be sweet and tender, but at times I like him intense, so another male can be possessive and intense and a third could make me laugh, a fourth could be kinky etc.

I mean the list is endless! But no. Not that endless. I think 3 or 4 guys are my limit of credibility, although I read some ménage with more than 5 guys and loved them. It all depends of the author’s talent I guess.

Lea: LOL! Yikes, six would be really crowded! See, I’ve really soured on more than 3 being involved in the relationship. This is strictly a matter of personal reading preferences, of course, but I just find it’s too many phalluses penetrating too many orifices. LOL But again, that’s just me.

Any favorite authors?

Mary: So many: Laura Tolomei, Tymber Dalton, Natalie Acres, Madeleine Montague, Anne Douglas, Kaitlyn O’Connor, Cherise Sinclair, Kimberly Zant, MacKenzie McKade, Trista Ann Michaels and many more.

Lea: Do you have any book recommendations for readers new to ménage themes in romance?

Mary: It is difficult to choose only a couple but…

Sci-Fi MMF: Fierce Radiance by Tymber Dalton
Contemporary MFM: Their Virgin’s Secret by Shayla Black and Lexi Blake
Contemporary MFMM: Cowboys boots and Unfinished Business by Natalie Acres
Contemporary MMF: Between friends by Lolita Lopez
Contemporary MFM: Forbidden Pleasure by Lora Leigh
Contemporary MMF: One-two-punch by Katie Allen
BDSM MFM: Grace’s Final Submission by Sara Kingston

Lea: Lately I’ve noticed a growing number of authors are using m/m/f themes in ménages, do you have any preference regarding the relationship mix? i.e. m/m/f versus m/f/m.

Tempt Me Twice by Eden Bradley

Mary: I generally prefer MFM vs MMF and not because of the bisexuality factor.

Unfortunately, in MMF ménage stories, it is very rare to find the equality between the characters that I am so fond of in a ménage. Most of the times, the relationship starts with two males already in a relationship, looking for their female third. Too often the female is the sex toy or the voyeur in the relationship. She hardly receives equal love and sexual attention. So this is a bit frustrating and also redundant. Either she is almost an outsider or she is the center but rarely I find the equilibrium with all.

There is a huge demand of MM stories right now and some MM authors are trying to extend their horizon by offering some MMF ménage. But it is way obvious that their focus is MM, so the quality is not quite there.

I prefer MFM stories. I think they are more complex. We all know we can love several times in our life so loving several partners at the same time is fascinating. By nature, we are possessive and we do not share our partner.

I read many ménages so far, and I rarely find the same level of emotion with MMF vs MFM. MMF will prioritize sex vs MFM with feelings. If is of course a general opinion. There are exceptions.

Lea: Any final remarks regarding ménage in erotic romance?

Coulters’ Woman by Maya Banks

Mary: Reading is a personal journey. I read my first ménage 5 years ago. It was Colters’ Woman by Maya Banks. Since then, I never stopped reading this sub-genre.

The main misconception people have with ménage is in thinking ménage means orgies and porn. Most forget to add romance after the ménage.

Erotic ménage and erotica with ménage scenes are two distinct subgenre. One would be romance oriented and the second would be porn oriented. Generally the covers and the titles give us clues but if someone never read a ménage, it can be confusing and misinterpreted.

Lea: Coulters’ Woman was the first ménage I ever read and enjoyed it too! I had an obsession with ménage stories after I read that one for quite a while. The relationship dynamic made many readers nuts but I think the contrast of characters and certainly adding the suspense element helped others to love the story! It’s the old story though, what floats one person’s boat sinks another! lol

Mary, once again, thank you so much for contributing to our series on Kink in Erotic Romance! We so appreciate your insight! 🙂

Mary: Thank you for this unique opportunity and for your interview. I love this sub-genre, and I hope that some readers will be curious enough to read a ménage romance and hopefully get as hooked as I am.

I also would like to thank all the ménage authors who are working hard to be published and who give me hours of great reads! You rock!

    I recently read a menage book called Desire for Three by Leah Brooke and I really enjoyed it. I looked and it’s a series so I will probably be getting the other books since I liked the first one. I haven’t read many menage’s but it doesn’t bother me at all. I know some people get squeamish when it comes to 3 or more people in a relationship, but as long as everyone gets their HEA…I’m good. I do like paranormal books more than any other genre at the moment so if there are menage paranormal books you could recommend, that would be great.

    • Lea February 2, 2012 at 11:38 am

      Hi Mary!

      Thanks for your comment! Lauren Dane wrote a series of paranormal romances involving wolf shifters that I really enjoyed. Here is the link to the series on her website: I know there are many others and if Mary stops by she may have others to recommend for you!

      • Mary Kirkland February 3, 2012 at 12:53 pm

        Thank you, I will definitely check it out.

  • Filia Oktarina February 2, 2012 at 12:08 pm

    I’m not a huge fan of ménage themes, when i try it, it not to well with my mood and imagine,. If one for one for me is good, however if comes 3 or more, i don’t like it.


    • Lea February 2, 2012 at 1:28 pm

      It’s not for everyone Filia! Really appreciate you stopping by and offering your perspective!

  • Ashley February 2, 2012 at 1:24 pm

    My friends think I’m a closet freak because my motto has always been “The more the merrier.” I love menage stories.

    Thanks for giving me several authors to add to my must read list.

    • Lea February 2, 2012 at 1:29 pm

      LOL Ashley!

      Not at all! Tell them you are a sophisticated reader! 😉 Thanks for your comment!

  • Arianne February 2, 2012 at 1:49 pm

    I don’t mind menage as long as everyone is happy so guilty pleasure for me 🙂

    I love menage stories! The ones I generally read are either m/f/m or m/m/f. I guess I like these so much cause I love guys, so you add more than one and it is heaven. It is a nice fantasy, even if you might not ever actually try it.

    I am a menage virgin, i have only come across it once but it sure worked there. And I am sure it would work even better if they all were on even ground (which they weren’t there)


  • samantha February 2, 2012 at 4:17 pm

    I love menage books- you seem to get the best of each person that is there- super hot!

  • Diane February 2, 2012 at 7:11 pm

    I’m not enthralled with menages; I’ve read a few but only because these are written by authors I generally read and enjoy. With more than 3 in the menages? Not interested at all!

  • StacieD February 2, 2012 at 8:50 pm

    I love reading menage romances. I especially like m/m/f menage stories. I think the romance becomes more complex when you add a third person. The trio has to take extra steps to make sure that no one feels left out.

    I love menages but they have to have a story. Non-stop sex gets boring without some plot.

  • Alexa February 2, 2012 at 9:42 pm

    I personally really enjoy it being a part of erotic romance. I think if you are going to call a romance book erotic then it needs to push the boundaries of the ‘bedroom’!
    I actually really enjoy some of the books you have listed and although I do have to say I don’t want a book to have all sex all the time, it is fun to have some spicy scenes included.

  • Mary Preston February 3, 2012 at 2:43 am

    I’m not fussed by a menage theme. There always seems to be a loser somewhere. Perhaps I should just try a few more, purely for research purposes.


  • Victoria Zumbrum February 3, 2012 at 7:35 am

    I have not read any menage books yet but I really want to. Please enter me in contest.

  • Joanne B February 3, 2012 at 11:48 am

    I like to read menage stories but there has to be a story there. It can’t just be about sex. i think these stories are fantasies for most of us, I mean how often does that really happen. We all like to lose ourselves in a story.


  • Jen B. February 3, 2012 at 2:59 pm

    I purchased my first menage book by accident and it turned out to be one of my favorites (though I struggle to explain why). It’s Dangerous Boys And Their Toy by Shayla Black. It is such a silly story but I really enjoyed it and wished there was a followup to find out if the threesome made it work. My second was Rough, Raw and Ready by Lorelei James. I love that book because the characters have to work through the issue of Trevor’s bisexuality and Chassie doesn’t end up an outsider in the relationship. I love Maya Banks Sweet series, although none of the menages become permanent relationships. And I have thoroughly enjoyed most of the Desire series by Leah Brooke. Some of it is ridiculous but the idea of a whole town embracing the dom/sub and menage lifestyle is really interesting.

  • JenM February 3, 2012 at 5:06 pm

    To be honest, I’m not wild about menages. Initially they were fun to read and I read a fair number, but after awhile, they started to squick me out, and now I pretty much avoid them. I’ll still read them in paranormals, but otherwise I prefer not to.

  • Stephanie Draven February 3, 2012 at 6:27 pm

    A couple of things strike me about this interview, the first is that I’m glad we have someone like Mary who is out there fighting the good fight for alternate sexuality within romances. She knows what she likes and she’s not afraid to say so, which should embolden other readers to not wilt like wallflowers at the sight of a romance that may not normally be their cup of tea.

    I’m not so fond of hard-line rules being drawn about kink and bdsm. Like most types of sexuality, actual real-life practitioners fall in a wide spectrum. If someone wants to self-identify as a dom, I’m not going to tell him he’s wrong because he doesn’t fit someone else’s definition of that word. There’s enough infighting in those communities about labels and I’d hate to see it perpetuated by literary convention.

    That said, I’m both intrigued and thrilled by Mary’s insistence that HEAs must involve all parties equally for a good menage, though it leaves me wondering if there should be some other genre label applied to the other kinds of threesomes and relationships that come out of these stories? (See, genre labels, I’m all for…)

  • Laura Kaye February 3, 2012 at 6:53 pm

    Fun interview, and thanks for the book recommendations! 🙂

    I love menage stories for all the same reason Mary and others have stated. The emotional and physical stakes are higher, the emotions are heightened times three or four or… The boundaries are pushed further and peoples’ ideas about themselves and romantic norms are challenged. Plus the sex is more adventurous and usually beyond the characters’ normal experience. All of that makes for great, compelling reading for me.

    However, as a reader, I don’t share the list of “must haves” that Mary outlined. I love MMF, MFM, MMMF, etc., equally and am wiling to give any story a chance without an expectation of or requirement for permanent polyamory at the end (as an aside, I always wonder how well that works in real life… LOL). I guess maybe, in general, if an author “sells” the ending to me, it can work no matter what.

    Dee-licious post!

    Oops… laurakayeauthor @

  • Tamsyn February 4, 2012 at 12:56 am

    That was a really interesting interview. I enjoy all kinds of romance stories including menages. I share Mary’s view regarding HEAs. It doesn’t matter what genre it is but it must have a HEA. That is actually one of my gripes regarding e-books. It is difficult to tell from the blurb whether the ending is HEA or not. Whereas at a bookshop, I could just flip to the last pages and check before forking out $s for a book which I may not even read. In menages, I would need all three (or more?) to have a HEA together otherwise I feel that the story is sort of unfinished. I may still enjoy it if it has a partial HEA but would probably never read it a second time.

  • MJB February 4, 2012 at 1:01 pm

    Really interesting topic. I became a fan of multiple partner stories when I was reading the Amita Blake and Merry Gentry books. Not only were they wickedly hot, bubt it was interesting to see how the ongoing relationships were negotiated. I agree that it can be interesting to see how the dynamics play out depending upon the configuration of the group: MMF, MFM, etc. I’m partial to MMF because I like to see the men have sex with eachother, as well as with the woman. I find it can be a bit strange to have the 2 guys
    having sex with the female and not with eachother. I mean, everyone is naked together but the guys don’t touch. Lastly, even though I find brothers in menages to be very hot, I wonder if it reakt

  • MJB February 4, 2012 at 1:13 pm

    Oops. didn’t mean to end my post. I apologize for the typos since I didn’t get to edit! The point about brothers having sex with a woman but not with eachother: isn’t that walking the thin line regarding incest? I’ve wondered how the boys can be so physically close to one another during sex and not accidentally touch eachother or want tokÿ. Like I said, it’s hot, but that issue doesn’t seem to get addressed, that is, how close brothers are to having sex with one another. Does anyone have any ideas about this area and how this issue is ignored.

    I love menage stories!! I don’t read them exclusively but I do enjoy reading pretty much any flavor and seeing just how interesting the sex can get 😉

  • Pamk February 5, 2012 at 1:10 am

    I like menage that are m/f/m not the ones that are m/m/f. I’ve read some that are all right but usually not so much. could be because when a male is with anoher male I can’t see me as the heroine cause there’s not one lol. Love Lauren’s book too.

  • Heather February 5, 2012 at 1:49 am

    I think if they are done well, a menage can be really hot. Although I do prefer them paranormal, it just works better for me.

  • Anne R February 5, 2012 at 10:48 pm

    Great article/interview and I am going to check out some of those book recommendations.
    I like menage stories. I think, if done right, add more emotion and intensity to the story.

    The first (and only) book I’ve read with a ménage theme is Backstage Pass by Olivia Cunning. I didn’t think I would like it, but it was actually pretty steamy 😉 Thanks for the giveaway!

    drakeLa90 at aol dot com

  • JessS February 10, 2012 at 2:37 am

    I do quite like reading menage, and have to agree that it’s better when they all end up together with a HEA, rather than one or more of the people just being used as a sex toy. Kinda like in Backstage Pass which the person above mentioned. I mean I loved that book, and the menage part, but I kinda ended up feeling really bad for the second guy.
    Great post! And thanks for the giveaway.


  • MJB February 10, 2012 at 10:57 pm

    I have to say that I’m a fan of the menage. The first time I really read one was in one of Laurell K.Hamilton’s Anita Blake novels. I don’t remember which one (since all of them featured menages after a certain point), but it was one of the earlier books. It was so bloody hot that I was hooked after that. I do prefer MFM or MMFM. I love fantasizing that I am the only woman in the game being serviced by all of these hunky men!

    Now, I do have one pet peeve about them which has to do with the poorly written menage when you can’t figure out how the players are actually doing what is being described. At the very least, the author should make the act plausible in that they don’ have to be circus freak contortionists to get into some of the positions.

    Other than that, bring on the kink!

    I recently found Mary’s review site and have enjoyed getting her take on some books. I enjoy menage, but I like the characters to start their sexual adventures together. Many times when some of the characters are already involved and bring in a third, it doesn’t always click for me. It sometimes feels like the third person is thrown in just for the sake of the sex.

    I just wanted to take a moment to thank you all for the kind words and the great response you made with my interview.
    Thank you again Lea for this opportunity to share my love for this sub-genre.
    I was a bit upset to give only a short list of recommendation but my list is way bigger than that… and I even hesitated to add Undercover which is one of my favorite too!

    Menage themes in erotic romances are a guilty pleasure for me. Though I too, have gotten a wee bit picky. Prefer a threesome, with an emotional connection, and am okay with a HEA for them. More than three gives us some pretty wild storylines, and like Maya’s stories, can be successful, just the logistics of it always seems a bit exhausting for everyone involved.

    One of my recent favorite and successful menage storylines are Sophie Oak’s, Bliss Series.

  • Kaetrin February 18, 2012 at 3:25 am

    See I think that things are less equal where all three parties aren’t each sexually attracted to the other. I’ve found myself preferring m/m/f or m/m/m for that reason.

    The last m/f/m I read the men each wanted the girl, the girl couldn’t decide so the men decided to share. I didn’t really see that they had much of a relationship with each other.

    I really enjoyed Red Garnier’s The Satin Sash as it was clear all three had very strong feelings for each other.

    It’s a Forbidden Guilty Fruit Pleasure for me. I can’t say it’s just one. I’m new to reading the Menage books, I’ll admit it. Glad to see a list of some for those of us just starting out reading them!

    Thanks for interview!

    i admit that menage is not my thing. i like the idea of it but you’re right, it gets much more complex with more than 2 people and i guess my emotions just can’t handle it. 🙂

    I enjoy a good menage story but my limit is no more than four. I get confused with where all the limbs are during the smex scenes. My fave combination would be MFM. Favorite menage book would be, Submissive Beauty by Eliza Gayle. So emotional and beautifully written.
