KISSES SWEETER THAN WINE
With a growl born of desperation and agony, he wheeled around, and once again stormed off, disappearing through that same bedroom door and leaving nothing behind but the sound of the banging door.
“Declan!” Violet let her anguish show in the frantic way she cried his name.
He didn’t answer.
“I’m right here, baby.” His voice was soothing, but not enough.
“I-I can’t do this without him.” She didn’t want to do it without Declan. Not when everything she felt for Noah was all tangled up with everything she felt for Declan.
Besides, Declan had started this. Brought her to this level. Kissed her, seduced her, aroused her and made her half-crazy with yearning for him and Noah. Then he’d handed her over to Noah—and left. “He’s part of it. Part of you and me.”
“Shh.” Noah kissed her cheek, letting his soft lips play against it. His fingers, still buried inside her, had stilled. “He’ll be back. As much as he doesn’t want to acknowledge how he feels about us, he won’t be able to help himself.”
A crashing noise echoed from behind the closed door.
“He wants you, baby,” Noah reassured her. “As much as I do.” He pressed his palm flat against her clit and rubbed in gentle circles, his fingers moving by default.
She closed her eyes against the pleasure of his touch and the pain of Dec’s departure, and let her head fall back on Noah’s shoulder.
“He’ll be back because he wants me too,” Noah soothed. “As much as I want him.”
“I want you too, Noah.” Admitting as much after all this time was difficult, but denying the truth was impossible. “I have since that first meeting we had, two years ago. I want you so much, but…but I want him too.”
“I know. He makes us work. He’ll be back. I promise.”
Another crash echoed through the closed door.
“Count to ten,” Noah whispered.
His hand continued its hypnotic motion, and as much as Violet ached for Declan, she couldn’t deny the thrill or gratification Noah gave her. He thrust his fingers inside her, counting each time he did so. “One… Two… Three…”
Noah reached eight before the door was flung open. And there was Declan, stalking across the room again, his stride and expression filled with angry intent.
He came to a standstill between their legs, leaned down and right there, beside Violet, he kissed the other man. Just smashed his lips against Noah’s.

One sip of passion leaves them thirsty for more…
Declan Muirfield never planned to return to the hotel where he broke a woman’s heart and destroyed his prospects for a happy ever after. Until he finds himself strapped in Noah Martin’s passenger seat, being driven—against his better judgment—back to the scene of his crime.
Noah’s spent too many years watching while Declan’s lived the life he’s expected to lead rather than following his heart and living the life he wants. Now Noah’s had enough. It’s time for Declan to confront his past so he can embrace his future—with Noah, as it was meant to be.
And if that future should include a beguiling woman with honey-gold hair, all the better. Under the guise of a working weekend, Noah has invited Violet Harper to join them at the luxury vineyard hotel. Perhaps now the unspoken connection between Violet, Declan and himself can finally develop into something tangible.
Almost immediately, sparks flare out of control, and clothes come flying off in a hot whirlwind of desire. But convincing Declan and Violet that the three of them belong together may prove to be the hardest task Noah has ever undertaken.
Warning: A bottle of white? A bottle of red? Perhaps a bottle of bubbly instead? Ah, hell, just bring ’em all. We all know good things come in threes.
