Higland Heat by Sasha White is an erotic romance with a bit of menage thrown in. Not your sterotypical menage from the get go, this one involves a man trapped for 300 years in a crystal ball by a witch; a doctor who loves his wife, but is unable to give her all she needs sexually, and a wife who is in love with two men.
Dougal is a Scottish, dark haired man, with much to learn about modern day. He's been in love with his neighbor's wife since he moved in to the apartment next to them about 4 months ago. He wants her, not just sexually, but for always.
John is the Doctor who has loved his wife since they were very young. Even when he left to go to Medical School, he knew he'd go back to their town and marry her. He tries to give her all she needs and wants, but there are some things he just cannot give her, like the domiance she craves in the bedroom so much.
Kathryn is the woman in the middle. In love with her husband, and drawn to Dougal, she is despearte to get him to notice her. Working in her favor, is her husband's kink for watching. This feeds his voyer side and thankfully, he too wants Dougal to be with them.
I very much enjoyed this read. It's a short, hot, erotic tale of one woman and two men. The lengths that John and Kathyrn go to in order to seduce Dougal are really quite amusing and also endearing. Both truly want him to be part of their life, even when Dougal reveals a secret known only by a select few. We the readers know the secret, but watching it unfold for the characters is enjoyable.
I like how well Sasha is able to give us quite a bit of insight within the short 39 pages of this story. The only problem I had was reading the “Scottish brouge” when Dougal was only thinking, not speaking. I kept missreading wouldna as wouldn't. Otherwise, this story is quite good, and once you realize that little quirk, it's easy to read.
I don't usually do the star system, but for Amazon and others who do, I give this a 4 star. (Actually, if I could, it would be 4 ½)
For a quick read, check it out.
