Lauren Fraser

Now I don't know about you, but I love reading a great ménage story.  There's just something about them that really appeals to me. Maybe it's the whole taboo around being with more than one person at once, I don't know. Or it could be the fantasy about having two other people focused completely on one person and their pleasure that's just so hawt. Whatever it is, the whole thing just works for me. Guess that's why I like to write them. LOL

I have to admit though I am one of those readers who loves a good love story. I like to have some romance with my sex *grin* So for me there's nothing better than the emotional angst and upheaval in making an unconventional relationship work. And come on, when you add extra bodies there's going to be extra emotions involved and I just love that stuff.
I think a well written story pulls the reader in and makes you care about the characters regardless of gender and because of that I can read any combination in a story and enjoy it. But when it came to writing both of the ménage books I've written  I had to go with what works best for me, and I find the idea of two men and one woman pretty hot, I’m not going to lie.
Now I've written one M/F/M and one M/M/F ménage, and I really enjoy both. So I'm curious, as a reader what combination do you prefer? M/M/F, M/F/M, F/M/F, F/F/M? Do you like it when both men (women) are focused completely on the woman (man) but not each other, or do you enjoy seeing all three people touching each other and have that love and attraction cross boundaries?
It seems that whether you read these stories or not everyone has an opinion on what would make a good ménage story, and I would love to know what your works for you.

Dani’s Duo
Attorney Danika James is ready to celebrate her greatest win to date, but not with a bunch of stodgy lawyers and martinis. Beneath Danika’s buttoned-up exterior lives a woman with wild-side desires she has yet to fully discover.

Tattoo artist Paddy O’Shea walks on society’s razor edge. When he learns his best friend, Cooper Hanes, has more than a casual interest in Danika, Paddy suggests a weekend celebration of exploration none of them will ever forget.

For the next forty-eight hours the men satisfy fantasies Dani didn’t even know she had. But every party has to end. Doesn’t it? Or can the courtroom diva turn Dani’s Duo into something as permanent as one of Paddy’s tattoos?

She wrapped her arms around his neck. “Good to know. So then how come if you’re interested you keep asking me about Cooper?”
“Just trying to figure out who all the players are.”
“What’s that mean?”
“I’m just curious if you are interested in both of us or just me.”
“And if I said I was interested in both of you?” she asked, allowing her body to brush against his as they swayed to the music.
“That works too.”
“So have you two both dated the same woman before?”
“Dated? No. But we’ve uh, well, both enjoyed the company of the same woman.”
“You mean like sex?”
Paddy laughed. “Yeah, I mean like sex.”
Her mouth dropped open. “Wow. I don’t even know what to say about that.”
“What do you mean? The idea doesn’t appeal to you just a little bit?” He leaned in closer. His hot breath caressed her ear. “You don’t think the idea of two guys completely focused on you, touching you, caressing you, pleasuring you is appealing?”
An arrow of raw lust shot straight through her, drenching her panties in its wake. “Uh well…um…” she stammered.
He pulled her tighter against him and she could feel his erection against her stomach. Fuck yeah, it was appealing.
“Come on, where’s that girl who I pierced tonight? The one who’s a little bit wild and daring. The one who gets turned-on by the excitement of doing something that goes against convention.”
She shivered beneath his breath. How the hell could someone she just met see inside her head so clearly? “She’s thinking about her day job.”
“What the hell does that have to do with anything?”
“Come on, Paddy. I’ll see Coop at work, it’ll be weird.”
Paddy snorted. “Right, ’cause you guys are so tight right now. Besides, Coop’s a big boy, he’s not some locker room jock who’s going to blab all over the place about what you did. He’s certainly man enough not to need to kiss and tell.”
She glanced around. Cooper and Tina were no longer dancing. Cooper sat at the table alone, drinking his beer. His hungry gaze followed them across the dance floor. Oh my. “Are you sure he’d even be into something like this?”
“He’s alive, right?”
Dani laughed. “Yes, he’s alive.”
“Then yeah, I’m sure he’ll want to, but hell, don’t take my word for it. Ask him yourself.”
She eyed Cooper again. Would he be into it? And if he was, could she do this? Her mind told her she was an idiot to even consider it but her body was screaming at her to be wild and daring. Paddy was right. Her lawyer persona hid a woman who craved excitement and adrenaline rushes. She’d never managed to find a man who could handle what she wanted sexually. But she had no doubts Paddy was up for the challenge and Cooper, he called to her on a completely different level.
“Let us help you celebrate your victory in a way you’ll never forget.”
She gulped. Shit, was she really considering this? One look at Paddy’s face and she was done. Yep, she was definitely considering this. She nodded. “Okay, let’s see if Coop wants to celebrate.”

Myself as a reader, I enjoy reading about two men totally focused on one woman. It's the whole fantasy of the woman's (yours) being the most important part of the equation. Hot, hot, hot!

Sarah J. McNeal said...

A very interesting blog, Lauren. I wish you much success with your book, Dani's Duo.

Tina Donahue said...

The thought of two hot males tending to a willing female is yummy beyond belief. Your books sounds wonderful!

Delaney Diamond said...

Congratulations on this new release, Lauren. I'm sure it will be successful.

Tonya Kinzer said...

Hi Lauren! Congrats on the new book. Nice blog, gets one to thinking about what we really want and secretly desire? Hhmmmm...of course two men concentrating on one woman gets us slippery but I don't have anything against two women concentrating on one man either...and what a way to attract that core of readers! Muah! Have a great day!

Amber Green said...

If the three don't have a sexual interest in one another, they have to have some other reason to want to remain together--otherwise the two who are not interested in one another will pull the middle person apart like a wishbone.

Jadette Paige said...

Hi Lauren! For me, I prefer the M/M/F. The relationships between all of them have to be strong. You've captured that in both your Menage' books. Wishing you the best, love!

DA Kentner said...

I don't mind a little upheaval, as long as I'm not the one who has to clean it up.

Bottom line for me, I can read anything as long as the story is well written. Lauren's stories are well written.

Lauren Fraser said...

Marie - yep, there's nothing like all that attention focused on the woman's pleasure. *grin*

Sarah - thank you, glad you liked the post.

Tina - I agree, it's a very yummy scenario. Lots of possibilities for enjoyment. *grin*

Delaney - thank you.

Tonya - I've never tried my hand at writing two women/one man, not sure if I could do it justice. Might be fun to try.

Amber - I agree whether the relationship between the other two is sexual or not there needs to be some kind of connection, otherwise jealousy would rear its ugly head.

Jadette - thanks. Glad you enjoyed them both. I agree the relationship has to be strong for it to be sustainable. Otherwise it's just a hot one off.

DA- Well written is key for me too. Thanks for the compliment, it means a lot coming from you.

Well now, Lauren, you've just brought up my favorite topic. I like all the men focused on the woman (I'm a selfish gal) but I've read some really hot stories where everyone shares nicely ;)

This book is on my TBB list now. Between the kiss you sent me and this excerpt I'm ready to melt!
