Tessie Bradford's "Megan's Men" Packs Four Times The Heat
Today’s treat is a mini-review of a book I just finished and absolutely loved—Tessie Bradford’s “Megan’s Men”. Yes I’m biased and Tessie and I are good friends, but I read this book with eyes wide open and enjoyed as if I’d didn’t know what a lovely person Tessie was.
I’ve enjoyed all of Tessie books but Megan’s Men is my favorite to date. Tessie has taken her writer’s voice further and created a rich Sci-fi ménage romance that features three terrific men and one really lucky woman.
Here’s the Blurb: “Megan’s Men”
Megan Lynch has had a very bad year. Her husband took off with most of their assets and a twenty year old bimbo. She lost her job and has nowhere to live. Accepting a management position at a research facility on a distant planet was supposed to be the first step to a new start. But now her transport has been cancelled indefinitely. She’s stranded, exhausted, defeated, and utterly pissed off.
Garfor, Rork and Loban came to Earth for a one day trading mission. Finding their woman alone and upset in the travel port is both a blessing and extremely upsetting. She is unfamiliar with their ways, and Garfor is forced to use deceit to get her onto their ship and off the planet. With only a few days to convince her she is destined to be theirs forever, all three men are more than willingly to rise to the challenge.
I found myself hooked from the first page by Megan’s dilemma. Megan’s in the middle of a major life change. She taken a job on another planetoid sight unseen and risked everything to leave behind a personal life that hasn’t gone so well. She immediately, and naively finds herself in a dangerous situation in a space travel port that she believes is merely an inconvenience. She gets bumped from a legitimate space liner and is reassigned to a shadowy cargo ship that carries more risk than she realizes. Megan doesn’t have enough space-faring experience to ask the right questions and seems to be walking straight into a human trafficking type of ordeal.
Just as things are really going sour she’s almost gets run down in the spaceport as well. Thank god for the quick reflexes and timely intervention of a prince-like Mr. Tall-dark-and-handsome, who steps in and saves Megan from physical harm. Garfor of the House of H’oug is a gorgeous warrior who scoops Megan into his arms and enlightens her about her true situation.
Megan is shocked to discover a respected space liner would throw a lone woman, such as herself under the bus. She’s also unsettled to be experiencing an instant attraction and feelings of lust and trust for a man who appeared out of nowhere. The moment Megan and Garfor touch a mate bond that was meant to be begins to unfold. Garfor doesn’t even try to hide it and Megan is left confused and intrigued by the strength of his presence.
It’s no surprise that Garfor won’t allow Megan to naively board a slave ship. He takes charge of Megan and her luggage and leads her aboard his luxurious space ship along with a little white lie. Megan thinks she’s getting express service to her destination, but Garfor has a few surprises in store. Megan isn’t going straight to the planetoid she has accepted a job on. She headed to Garfor’s home plant as his bonded mate and guess what else? Garfor is a Slaterine man and Slanterine men mate in quads—three committed men and one lucky woman. Megan boards Garfor’s ship and meets two other gorgeous men Rork and Loban, who are surprised and delighted Garfor has brought a life mate home for them all to share…
Now do I have your attention? This is a very hot book! For your comfort and safety do not read Megan’s Men while seated on combustible materials or near an open flame. Rork and Loban are just as interesting as Garfor and have distinct personalities and conflicts of their about concealing facts from Megan. They had my sympathy too. My god these poor guys have a lot at stake and they only have a brief window of time to convince Megan of the glory that is polyamory. If you love romance this is a yummy romance. If like ménage this is really hot. If you love a happy ending here’s a very ending for, four deserving people. If you’ve always dreamed of having a big family… never mind I won’t spoil it for you.
I highly recommend Tessie Bradford’s “Megan’s Men” available July 31st from Resplendence Press.
