Good girls gone bad
by Kelly Jamieson

I’ve written a lot of blog posts lately about ménage à trois romances and what the appeal is. Obviously, having two hot guys around means double the pleasure, double the fun! But looking at the heroines of both my last two releases (Rule of Three and One Wicked Night) and how they ended up doing such naughty things, I wonder what more there is to it.

Both the heroines in my last two books end up in unconventional ménage à trois relationships, and they both have something else in common―they’re both considered “good girls”. Kaelin in One Wicked Night is dutiful, responsible and cautious. She sacrificed a law career to come back to her home town to care for family, and even though she doesn’t have to stay there any more she feels tied there by her own fear of taking a risk. Everyone in town thinks she’s a sweetheart who volunteers and helps others. Kassidy in Rule of Three grew up in a family where she was the “good sister”. Her sister rebelled against their parents, lives a different lifestyle and mocks Kassidy for her “safe” choices, her steady, supportive boyfriend and her predictable corporate job.

So how do such good girls end up doing such naughty things?

Women often have so many responsibilities – parents, children, husband, careers, volunteer work. All these things can take us away from attending to our needs, possibly needs for passion and adventure and excitement. Often we deny our sexual needs, pretending that we don’t experience lust or desire, or pushing those feelings away because we don’t have time for them. How often do women put aside our own wants and needs? How often do we put ourselves first? So often, we don’t. I know I’ve been there and done that and I don’t regret it, but I’ll admit to a deep down longing for something more — more passion, more adventure, a desire to be put first. Sometimes we might not even recognize what it is we want. Maybe we’re tired of being good all the time.

According to the psychological principal of “splitting”, women often separate the “bad girl” parts of ourselves, things like hate and envy and (gasp) lust, from the “good girl”. So maybe part of the appeal of the ménage à trois is the fantasy of letting ourselves be something other than the “good girl”. We can be bad. We can be lustful, sexy, desirable―so desirable that TWO men want us. We can be passionate and seek out adventure and excitement―even if it’s through the pages of a hot and sexy romance novel.

What do you think — do you have a naughty bad girl inside you trying to get out?

Rule of Three

If you follow the rules, you miss all the fun...

Kassidy is a good girl who wants to be bad. Dag is a bad boy who is very, very good. And Chris? He likes to watch…

When wicked-sexy Dag returns to Chicago to catch up with his old college buddy Chris and meet The Girlfriend, none of them are anticipating the unexpected turn of events that switches a loving twosome into a scorching hot threesome. As old feelings resurface, and new attractions are explored, a storm of sexual sparks is unleashed that leads them into forbidden areas.

Always the good girl, Kassidy blossoms under the attentions of two loving men, but neither she nor Chris are expecting the ménage to take a quarter turn toward Dag…and his feelings for Chris. When it’s revealed that Dag’s attraction to Chris is one big reason he left town, a tangled mess of old hurts and new feelings might destroy friendship. Love. Might destroy everything.

Product Warnings: This book contains a couple already in love, a couple falling in love and a couple in love who didn’t know it; also multiple scorching sex scenes including girl with boy, girl with two boys, boy with boy and two boys with girl...whew!
