His Gift - Gillian Colbert This was definitely on the short end, but I thought the author did a good job of filling in enough background on Owin and Maurina's relationship. The idea of a lover willing to give you everything you want without even asking for it is sexy. I think I'd be a little freaked out that I had *no idea* who the third was, but at the same time, maybe I can understand Owin keeping it a secret. Not that he has anything to worry about in terms of who Maurina wants to spend her time with, but considering how possessive he was, it had to leave him feeling just a skosh vulnerable to share her with someone. Short, sweet, and sexy.
