Mac MacAllistre is obsessed; the online news reporter needs enough evidence to write a story accusing billionaire art collector Daniel Terrebone of stealing The Golden Dancer, a priceless work of art, from son-of-a-Nazi Horst Von Berg. The story promises the recognition Mac craves, but then Mac meets a real golden dancer, ballet star Trelain Medveyev, and his attraction to the man rocks his formerly straight world.

When the mysterious Terrebone “collects” this beautiful dancer, too, Mac rushes to the rescue like a knight in shining cargo pants and plunges into a three-way passion that tears him between love and guilt. Can Mac keep investigating when his story could send one man to prison and another to the morgue? Will this reporter get his story or get his men?

“He couldn't look away or stop doing the thing making that serpent rise.”

Whoa, momma! This book is hot. The heat comes from a well thought out plot, and an author who has a crazy sense of humor that made it impossible to put the book down until the end. The story is built around three men, a news reporter MacKenzie MacAllister (Mac Mac) and so-called straight man, Silver hair Daniel Terrebone, billionaire art collector and possible art thief, and Trelain Medveyev, a beautiful golden hair, gay Russian ballet dancer.

Ms. Lain has a way of bringing out the chemistry between the characters that both charmed and hypnotized me, and left me with a sense of peace and contentment when I was finished. The dialogue and true-to-life characters made me feel like a fly on the wall watching the drama play out. I love the fact that all three men are so different in personalities as well as lifestyles yet they are all drawn to each other. And of course the sex scenes were hot enough to boil water.

What I was partial to was the suspense of not knowing if the three would work out their differences, if they would all become lovers, or would they just have a weekend fling. Mac Mac was the one that kept me wondering the most, if he would open his eyes and see what was important to him before he lost it all. The dialect of Ms. Wow Wow was cute and made me wish I had a boss like her. She definitely stood out even though she was a secondary character in the story line. The tale was a work of art in itself with a lot of emotional pull; one that will be read again and again.
