Back Cover Blurb:

On the run, branded a traitor by her government, Fay Avalon has to depend on three brothers for shelter. Sinful Surrender is Book 1 of Houston Havens’ new romance series, Psychic Ménage. Why be tempted by one man’s seduction when you can be loved by three? Top psychic spy Fay Avalon saw too much on her latest mind traveling mission and is now on the run from her post-catastrophic dystopian government, searching for the truth and proof. She escapes but is shot down, landing in the arms of the enemy.

In Drakker and Arlo’s world, women are so rare the men have accepted a polyandrous lifestyle. When the brothers stumble upon Fay unconscious in the wreckage of an aircraft, they are immediately attracted to her. Arlo wants to keep her, but Drakker knows they can’t. They must take her to their brother Logan Abán, leader of their people.

Logan struggles with trusting anyone, even himself. When a beautiful, intelligent, and intriguing woman falls into their laps, his denied desires for intimacy challenge his need to trust the spy. He’s frustrated by romantic Arlo’s claims of her innocence. Even when pragmatic and dominating Drakker defends her as well, Logan refuses to trust his gut.

Can one woman satisfy the diverse desires of three men? Will Logan’s fears be realized by betrayal? Is Fay to be sentenced to death as a spy, suffer a fate worse than death by being returned to her government as a traitor, or will she find a new life and love as the wife of three sexy brothers?

My Review:

This wildly captivating novel blew me away with the vivid and oh-so-real descriptions. Heat and spice vie with action, intrigue, and betrayal in this one of a kind novel. Havens ramps up to a very action packed and suspenseful ending that leaves you wanting & needing to know where the series will go next. This is definitely a SciFi/dystopian tale like no other. The well-developed history of the world puts everything in context. Readers not only know what’s happening now, but how it came to happen. The various factions and organizations are brought forward in a very complex yet revealing manner. I really appreciated the prologue of this novel. It really set things up for me, allowing the story to take off from there.

The variety of different peoples that we meet are not only well-developed as races but are completely unique. Havens highlights the differences between them, but let’s their similarities bring them together. Top this off with a fantastic cast of characters and you have something that you won’t soon be able to forget. The contrasts between the main characters adds a great deal of conflict and depth to the story. It also packs an emotional punch and makes them seem even more real.

This is so much more than just a racy story, even though it definitely is that. I would give anything to be as imaginative and articulate as this author. I definitely can’t wait to read more of her work in the future.
