When Ethan Drake moved to Cattle Valley, he thought he’d left his dangerous stalker behind but when he starts hearing noises late at night, he’s not so sure. He’s called the police department numerous times but local Deputies Brian Allenbrand and Pete Nash have been unable to find any sign of an intruder. So when the noises start again, Ethan is reluctant to call the police, afraid of being known as ‘the man who cried wolf’.

Brian and Peter have been lovers for months and soon Ethan finds himself drawn into an erotic threesome, a world he never imagined he’d ever be a part of. Yet all isn’t smooth sailing for the new lovers. Danger is lurking in the shadows and it’s up to Peter and Brian to step forward and protect Ethan, no matter what the cost.

The latest addition to the Cattle Valley family of books is Carol Lynne’s To Service and Protect. It’s release twenty in the popular series and as much as I’ve enjoyed the others, this one’s my new favorite. I’ve been anxious to see Ethan find a man of his own since he first moved to Cattle Valley, so I was thrilled to learn he would be featured in this story. And in this case, lucky Ethan gets two guys.

Ethan’s a young man with a wounded heart and while the reader has gotten bits and pieces of his personality and history in the previous releases, Ms. Lynne has outdone herself with rounding out his character and bringing this sweet and likable guy to life. Peter and Brian were a little harder to get a handle on. They’re both dedicated and determined men and don’t forget sexy. Of the two, I found Peter the more grounded, but Brian the more interesting. Peter because he knew what he wanted, and Brian because as a widower with a teenage son, he doesn’t have a clue on how to control what was going on in his life.

Putting these three dissimilar men together into a hot and passionate threesome relationship is another example of Ms. Lynne’s creative flair. Add in Brian’s unruly teenage son Benny, an unforeseen stalker and a little help from Ryan and you have all the components needed for a well plotted romance with an attention-grabbing suspense element. Watch for The O'Brien Way featuring Moby Haines and Sean O'Brien, slated for release late in December 2011.
