Publisher's Summary

Brothers in Arms, Book Two
Phillip Neville and Jonathan Overton have been best friends since childhood. When they return to England as veterans of the Napoleonic Wars, they enter the marriage market. It doesn't take long for them both to fall deeply in love with shy, awkward, beautiful Maggie Trueheart. Phillip and Maggie marry, but Phillip and Jonathan do not tell her about the menage-a-trois marriage the two men hope to have. When Maggie finds out, it takes the persuasive power of both men to convince her that this threesome was meant to be.
In the process of helping Maggie discover the sexually aggressive woman inside herself, Phillip and Jonathan realize their love for one another is more than friendship. Before the two men can consummate their relationship, however, a brutal attack on Maggie and Jonathan's self-recriminations drive the lovers apart. It will take all the love and determination the three possess to achieve their happily ever after.

A Recurring Theme

Samantha Kane has developed a theme where young men form staunch friendships during the appaling war years and then have a desire to share the same woman under the one roof. It is a persuasive ploy to introduce menage relationships but why set it in another century? If the date were not stated one would assume by the way the characters speak and behave that the story was set in the present day.

"Love Under Siege" introduces two friends, Phillip and Jonathan , both of whom covet the same woman, Maggie. Jonathan backs out from persuing her, allowing his best friend to marry her instead, but their most arduous desire is to share her and live as a threesome. All this is concocted behind Mary's back who is innocent and green in the art of lovemaking. Jonathan grows weary of waiting and urges his friend to make haste with Maggie's progress in the bedroom as his desires are raging beyond control! Peter is more than eager to oblige, wishing to relive the experience of sharing a woman with the friend he now lusts over.

Thus begins a not so delicate seduction with the two men appearing coarse and pushy not allowing Maggie a reprieve. She is shocked by such a proposition but cannot deny the attraction she feels for them. Her reticence and qualms are laid to rest by Jonathan and Phillip whose attack on all fronts leaves no room for resistance. Maggie capitulates enjoying the advances of both men until she is attacked by someone who threatens to reveal their licentious lifestyle to society.

Ms Kane focuses primarily on the sexual relationship of the characters at the expense of character development so we are bombarded with ample sex scenes before we get to know the heroes' deeper feelings, conflicts and desires. Unfortunately, most authors of erotica contend themselves to simply telling us that the heroes love each other, period. There is no actual build up of expectation or the gut wrenching need to earn someone's love. In this case, the heroine loses all her inhibitions in record time and does not hesitate to use four letter words to express her wishes in the bedroom. In fact the overuse of this limited vocabulary that the characters love to use makes them appear atavistic, with a great emphasis on raw carnality which sadly detracts from the sensual. How about some Real Emotions?
