Olympia Whyte, a young widow, is returning to London’s haute monde, after being secluded for almost two years in mourning. She’s not sure of herself as she is bombarded by suitors vying for her attention and a few men are more determined than others to have her for themselves. While at an evening dinner, Olympia witnesses her closest friend participating in unbecoming sexual behavior. It shocks her, but doesn’t stop Olympia from watching more than she should and she soon finds herself accosted and in an unwanted sexual encounter with a stranger herself. This creates a series of events beyond her control, leaving her confused and sexually wanting, at the same time.

Colby Beldon, Duke of Tasley and Prince Leland Mallery are two friends who are determined to pursue Olympia and they mean to have her alone or together. These two men find themselves attracted to each other, and Colby is not exactly happy about wanting another man, because of his public status. As they both spend more time with Olympia, it becomes obvious to the three of them that they only want each other.

Satisfying Olympia is the first release in the new Regency England series. I am overwhelmed by the loyalty that the three characters showed each other after becoming a trio. When I read this story, I just knew there would be the usual ton mamas after the single men for their daughters and boy, was I surprised at the turn of this book.

Olympia proved to be strong-willed and her ability to explore her sexuality showed that she had room to grow. I thought that she could have handled one of her suitors a little better, to defuse his determination to have her for himself.

The men, Colby, Leland and the villain, really were so much alike in character, it would have been very hard to choose between them. My only aversion was with the villain, especially after his true character came out and his reasons for wanting Olympia. As the villain plotted how his life with Olympia will be, it left me wondering what would have happened if he had gotten her under his complete control. I found myself liking Colby and Leland more for their fierce protection of Olympia, and hers towards them.

Ms. Gideon really created quite a story of how the Ton life can be and she had me mesmerized with the characters and their need to please each other. There were moments of laughter, anger and sexual frustrations throughout the book, and I won’t give away the spoiler. But I will say read and enjoy.

Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of M/M, M/F/M, anal sex, light bondage, voyeurism and explicit language.
