Writing Ménages with Two Ladies and One Guy aka M/F/F

Good morning, Paranormal Romantics. Please help me give a warm welcome to guest blogger and author extraordinaire, Ann Mayburn.

*\0/* *\0/* *\0/*

Take it away, Ann.

I’ll admit it, in an ordinary world the thought of sharing my husband with another woman makes me absolutely bat shit crazy. Like ‘I’m gonna cut you!’ crazy.

Just the idea of him kissing another woman turns my stomach. So why in the world does it turn me on so much to read about it in romance, and why did I choose to write a very steamy short story, Amber Moon, where a husband and wife bring another woman into their relationship as a permanent third partner?

Because in the wonderful world of my shifter series, ‘Prides of the Moon’, the dynamics of a relationship among my werepuma’s are anything but ordinary. The heads of my prides are made up of Alpha Males and Alpha Females, mated and bonded together so that they can speak in each other’s thoughts and feel each other’s emotions. They share everything pain and pleasure, and they would no more hurt each other through betrayal than they would hurt themselves.

Every Alpha needs a beta to be their second in command, to watch their back and be their confidant. The betas need their Alpha’s just as much, they yearn to belong to someone powerful enough to protect them and worthy of their devotion. The Alpha’s also bond with their Betas, and this can lead to all kinds of different relationships, including M/F/F.

When the bonded couples make love, the members of the same sex can feel the sensations that their partners are feeling. It’s quite hard to be jealous when watching your mate make love with another female feels like he’s making love to you as well. The emotional satisfaction that a bonded mates feel for each other is the ultimate goal of all shifters. Bi-sexuality is common, after all imagine how good it would feel to be with another woman and be able to feel the dual sensation of kissing her and being kissed. Of drowning in her desire, feeling her passion as you make her and yourself climax over and over again.

Excuse me while I take a cold shower. ;)

In Amber Moon, Madeline and Nick Turea are the married ruling Alpha’s of the Amber Moon Pride. As you can imagine, finding just the right pairing of Alpha and beta is a very long and difficult process, sometimes impossible. Nick and Madeline have joined a very special, very exclusive dating service called 1 Night Stand, run by Madam Eve. Through the dating service they hope to find one very special female to fill the void in their life, the empty spot that should be held by their beta.

I invite you to step inside my world of magic, danger, and love without shame or prejudice. Where magic rules the night and true love conquers all, but only if you have the courage to accept it into your heart. I’ll be giving away books #1 and 2 of my Prides of the Moon series, ‘Amber Moon’ and ‘Emerald Moon’ to one lucky commenter. So tell me, if you were an Alpha female, what kind of pairing would you want? An Alpha and beta male to share your every desire? Or would you want an Alpha male and a beta male and female? Your imagination is the only limitation. :)

****Okay, it's that easy. Leave a comment telling Ann if you were an Alpha female, what kind of pairing you would want. Ann will draw one of the comments from her virtual hat. Don't wait, the deadline to comment is Friday, August 26th at midnight. I'll announce the winner on Saturday, August 27th at the beginning of the post.****

Last but not least, I'd like to give a big thank you to, Ann, for guest blogging today on Paranormal Romantics.

Have a great weekend, everyone.

Wow, am I really the first comment.

I hadn't heard of this book before, but after reading this blog, I am sorely tempted to go out and find it.

Thank you for sharing!

Rho said...

Ok, that was a steamy post first think this Saturday morning. LOL

Thanks for such a great post. It was very thought provoking. The books sound great.

This is a really hard question. I like to think I'd be equal opportunity because both types of menages would bring so much to the plate. Couldn't I just be greedy and have an F/F/M/M? LMAO

But, if you are making me choose, I think I'd go with the F/F/M because I could have the best of both worlds with my partners. I think the female form is extremely beautiful and it would be nice to try something I haven't done before. Although have two hot men at my disposal is REALLY hard to turn away from!

La Crimson Femme said...

I like the female form too, just like Rho. I prefer the M/F/F. This is because while I am Alpha, I prefer my men Alpha too. To have a beta female to play with would be divine. It's one of my favourite erotic fantasies. I'm not really into 4somes so I'd prefer to keep it to 3.

While a M/M/F is fun too, it's rare I have an opportunity to read a great M/F/F so I have to pick M/F/F at this time. I guess it's because there are so many fun sexual things that can be done to a woman. For me to be able to do so to a beta woman with my alpha male is helping, I would shiver with delight.

Jet said...

Oh the possibilities! I think I myself would have to go with M/F/F. I would have to agree with both Rho and La Crimson Femme with the reasoning. I also like the idea of two women having their way with the guy, girl power and all that, making him beg.


AmyS. said...

I think I would choose M/M/F. I like the idea of being over taken by 2 guys.
Thanks for the giveaway.

This sounds great. Glad I followed the link here.

I love this :) Okay I would say that I would be very upset and jealous if there was another female in the mix. I'd have to hurt her...*Alpha behavior* There can be only 1 female > Me!
So it would have to be M/F/M. But they only touch me.

I ♥ Bookie Nookie said...

Yikes! That's tough! I am very "Alpha" in real life, so I can't help but relate that way in fantasy land too. If I had to choose, I think I would have to say MFM...I definitely like the idea of having all the male attention. I have to say that I might have to kill a bitch trying to get freaky with my husband in our bed!

If I am reading a menage book and it is NOT about me, then I am game for anything, Menage and BDSM are my favorite sub-genres of erotica.

Ann Mayburn said...

Thanks for all the comments, ladies! I'm totally taking notes and my muse is putting together ideas for future 'Prides of the Moon' books. So many delicious Alpha/beta combinations, so little time. ;)

gigis said...

I would definitely want to be the one getting all the attention from two Alpha Males....but I agree with Bookie Nookie, if I am reading I love all forms of menage.

This sounds like a great series.I'll have to check it out.
I would want M/M/F.I would want the attention of both men and also watch them together :)

June M. said...

I would have to agree with elaing8 on the M/M/F. Just imagining being with 2 hot guys is great. Especially if these guys are muscular and tattooed....Yummy! Yep, that would be my fantasy too!

Summer Rose said...

I do love every form of menage so for me to get everything, I think I will need a total of 5 :) m/m/m/f/f. Everyone would have to be able to play with everyone else. I am a huge fan of m/m and I would love to watch the m/m/m and still have someone to play with while doing so. I don't get to read a lot of m/f/f, but I must say that I do like what I have read so far. Plus I love that kitty shifters are usually cuddly :)

Unknown said...

This looks excellent. It's refreshing to see a book out that can please everybody! outredgeous at gmail dot com

Zany RiN said...

WoW ... this is an awesome giveaway for what looks to be an amazing series and I have to say that as intrigued as I am for reading any menage set up whether they be M/M/F, M/F/M, F/F/M or M/F/F if I had to pick for myself personally it would have to be M/M/F because the gorgeous men together with me is just freakin' hot!

GemH said...

I would have to say two alpha males and alpha me sounds just right. Of course though they think.they are alphas, it turns out i'd be the lynch pin. The thought of being at the mercy of two males sounds fantastic, and i wouldn't mind if they got frisky with each other as long as they didn't forget about me!!!

Unknown said...

What a yummy post, thank you Ann, your series sound exciting! I love feline shifters and if they are combined with a steamy story, all the better! :-D

I would like to have a M/M/F setting or even M/M/M/F. Only read 2 erotica stories with 3 heroes+1 heroine and they were great!

Thank you for the chance, would love to discover your series!

Paws said...

These books sound great!
I'm definitely in the M/M/F category.

Unknown said...

Im a little to possessive to share with another female so I definitely go with the mmf which would be my ultimate fantasy ....yummy!

WildAboutBones said...

Hi Ann! Great post. Love the
Star Trek reference and pic. Having read your other series, I can't wait to read this series.

This is a very hard question to answer. While both options are hot to think about, I think that being the selfish person that I can be, I think m/m/f would be a little bit better since even though the guys might be bi-sexual, they would probably focus on me as a female first so I would get the most attention and therefore the opportunities for satisfaction are greater. And even though I could read my mate's mind, I think I would still be jealous of him with a another female. For some reason, the thought of him with a guy is way more hot than him with a female.

I'd love to win.

Tough question if I base the answer on the descriptions you give of your writing. If one is able to truly sense the bodily responses of their partner/mate, then would it matter which menage one went for? Hmmm, I'd have to go for F/M/M but it would totally have to be on my terms and I'd expect them to play by my rules and my rules alone. Guess who'd be the one getting all the attention.

Great post.
