Thanks for having me as a guest, Delilah, I’m excited to be here. For those of you who don’t know me, I’m Lauren Fraser and I write contemporary romance, generally my books tend to be on the hotter side so you’ve been warned.

I admit I enjoy reading and writing ménage type stories but there are times when a HEA for the group just doesn’t make sense, my latest book Rode Hard was one of those times.

When I was writing Rode Hard I spent a lot of time thinking about the various ways a couple can explore their fantasies. Part of the fun in creating a sexually adventurous couple is exploring limits; what works and what doesn’t work for each person and also examining any potential ramifications. I mean let’s be real when you throw extra people into the mix things can potentially get troublesome. And I love all the emotion and angst that can bring up. The whole falling in love process should be a little messy. *grin*

Giving Kat her fantasy made me curious about how many is too many? Being with three guys isn’t necessarily a typical fantasy or at least not one most people would admit to. So I’m wondering for you as a reader how many is too many? I think we probably all have a line that makes our eyes bug out and think holy crap there’s no way. LOL

I know for me as a reader, when I’m looking at multiple partner books I have to factor in the end result as well. At the end of the day was this a couple who explored a fantasy or are they all supposed to live happily ever after? Because I have to admit that changes things for me too.

So I’m curious for all you ménage fans out there. How many is too many for you?



Six weeks surrounded by hot, rugged cowboys doesn’t sound like hard work at all. In fact, writer Kat McCray is going to enjoy this assignment. One look at sexy ranch owner Justin Shaw and she knows exactly how she plans to spend her downtime. In his bed.

Justin works hard and has the body to prove it. And he plays even harder—him and his two best friends. He’s more than happy to help Kat explore her darkest fantasies…especially the ones that involve all four of them.

Kat’s walk on the wild side is only temporary—Arizona is a lifetime away from her real life in New York. But she can’t deny she’s starting to fall for Justin. He’s sexy as hell and sweet as sin. And their sexual experiences with his two friends are nothing short of scorching. That doesn’t change the fact she’s going home at the end of her stay. Unless she can somehow turn this fantasy into reality.

    Hi, Lauren! For me, it’s fun to read menages, but for me, they are ALL fantasies–it’s hard to figure out how all those personalities and emotions would mesh in reality on a day-to-day, long-term basis. (I know there must be those out there who make it work–hats off to them!) It’s hard enough to communicate clearly and be considerate to one partner and the kids, much less imagining how that would work with even more personalities in the mix.

    As for how many is too many, I think in the realm of fantasy, as many as the author can manage to keep track of 😉

    Hey, Lauren! I think three guys tends to be the easiest number to keep track of reading a story. I’ve read stories with more, and enjoyed, but it was more work keeping all the characters straight. I think more cowboys would be worth the extra work 🙂

    Fedora- yeah I think keeping all the body parts straight starts to tricky when you get too many. Could make for interesting writing. lol

    Nara- you can never have too many cowboys. *grin*

    I love to read these stories every so often.
    Love cowboys but then again who doesn’t B-)
    I am thinking 4 is plenty. Anymore and one might feel left out.

    I am always a bit disconcerted by the idea of logistics of keeping that many partners well-satisfied but I enjoy reading the inventive stories…four seems pretty much the maximum to me.

    Looking at the cover for RODE HARD I’m thinking I could make it work – the mind boggles though – at least mine does.
