Guardian’s Bite by Grace Lynn
[Ménage Amour ManLove: Erotic Alternative Paranormal Ménage a Trois Romance, M/M/M, with M/M/F not involving the heroes, vampires, shape-shifters, elves, public exhibition, voyeurism, HEA]
Eirik is tired of being alone after all of his years of service to the Vampire community. When he least expects it, his mates fall into his path. Injured and dying, Eirik must do what he can to save his mates from the separation he knows he won’t survive.
Miles joins his friends for a wild night on the town during his break from college. At the Vampire Bar, Miles almost becomes the main dish until a golden-haired man tries to rescue him, putting them both in the frying pan.
Dominick is on the run from his Pard. He has never fit in anywhere, and he just wants someone to accept his albino status in the Griffon world. While trying to see the sights, he finds his mate at a local bar trying to become the cocktail of the night. Stepping in to save his mate, Dominick realizes he is in way over his head.
Note: This book contains double anal penetration.
So this is the third book in the Guardian City series. This time we have a new group mating. Eirik is a vampire, Dominick is a Griffon, and Miles is human. The three men meet up at and behind a vampire bar. Eirik is doing an errand for the master of his coven and watching the bar. Miles is just out for a good time when his friends abandoned him and he is scooped up to be a mess for some vamps. Dominick tries to save him and loses. The two men are near death and are being carried out behind the bar when Eirik spots them and recognizes them as his mates. He goes to save them and calls in his sired brother Demend to help. Dominick is healing but Miles is dying. Demend gives Miles a total transfusion to save him. Of course this is only the start of the three’s adventures.
This story is based around Demend’s sired brother Eirik. The story really starts with a bang. If you aren’t one for multiple partners, exhibitionism, and voyeurism don’t read. There is quite a bit of sex in the book. At the beginning of the book is a HUGE sex scene. I do think the writer may need a little work on the reality of sex like described. I don’t think some of what is described is as easily done as shown.
The characters are what make this book interesting. The author weaves many different species together along with various bits of lore about them. She creates a world with lots of prejudices that a group are trying to change and that change is spreading. These characters are all very different. They each bring a little something different to the story and the relationships therein. I enjoyed watching what was happening to them and how they were able to retain themselves while fighting for what they believe.
The writing is still improving. The flow was smoother and the characters and interactions where better evolved. For a comfort type read this is an excellent choice. I think that the writer is developing more skills in weaving the stories together. With the addition of more characters and books the author is showing a good ability to join them together while keeping the details of each straight. I do wish there was a little more depth to the stories. As I said these make good comfort reads but they are not complex, thought provoking books.
This series is getting more interesting as it goes along. I am wondering what the author has in store for the next book.
