I'm thrilled to have Sage Marlowe visiting on her blog tour for her new book, Triple Trust. Congrats on the new release, and especially on your one year anniversary, Sage!!!!
One year has passed since my successful debut novel, Sub-Mission, was released on May 14, 2012. A lot has happened during those twelve months. I’m taking the chance to look back and tell you a bit about the background of the books I’ve published, but also about things that happened in my life or that are on my mind. There’s one stop for every book, and of course, there are prizes waiting for you, because as always, good things for me mean good things for you, my dear friends and readers. Please read the “Giveaway” section below for details.
Today, I’d like to talk about ménages. Look at the romance bestseller lists and you’ll find that threesomes in any combination are popular these days, at least in literature. And it makes you wonder, doesn’t it? I think the fascination is definitely understandable. Even in the happiest of relationships, who doesn’t sometimes wish for their partner to show different character traits? Show just that little bit more enthusiasm to go out for long walks with you. Appreciate a cuddle on the sofa instead of always huddling up on their own end far away from you. Enjoy horror movies as much as you do. Take you out to go dancing. Whatever it is, there’s bound to be something where you’re interests just don’t match, and that’s where another, a second, partner might come in handy.
Not to mention the sex. Enjoying the attention of two lovers simultaneously? Blows your mind… Ahem. Excuse me, straying off topic a bit…
But my question is, does it work? Can it work? Well, why not? Just because it’s not society’s common standard doesn’t mean it can’t be the right thing for the people involved. That’s my opinion, but most people I know, at least in real life, either believe in monogamous relationships, i.e. two people together, or they’re single and looking for The One. What does it take to realise that the one person you’re with is not enough and how do you go about finding a third? Or what if you’re in a working relationship and suddenly there’s someone else? Would you take the risk to include him/her? How big is the chance that your partner will feel attracted to that other person, too, fall in love with them, even?
Admittedly, I’m raising more questions than giving answers today, but those were the questions on my mind while writing Triple Trust, a story about three men who come to understand that sometimes, two just aren’t enough. I believe I found some answers to my question as I followed Cole, Seth and Dylan along their bumpy and painful way to love and if you’d like, you can walk that road with them.
When trust doesn’t come easy and two can’t make it work, then three might be just what it takes to create the perfect relationship.
When Dylan Mitchell hires the indecently beautiful part-time fidelity tester and full-time cynic Cole Peckham to find out how loyal his boyfriend Seth Knowles really is, he is ready to expect the worst. What he doesn’t expect is the immense temptation Cole presents to him—and to Seth. Or the instant attraction Cole feels for both of them.
Deeply disappointed by Dylan’s lack of trust, Seth leaves Dylan both single and heartbroken, but free to turn to Cole for comfort.
A cruel twist of fate soon requires Cole to put much more into this fresh relationship than he’d bargained for. While he is determined to give his best, it looks like Dylan might need more than Cole can give him—especially since Dylan is still in love with Seth. But when two can’t make it work, three might be just what it takes to create the perfect relationship…
