People have heard of fleeting rumors about The Club. Located just outside Washington, D.C., only its members know where men go when they want to indulge the desire to share their women with a carefully selected male partner. John “Mac” McCoy resigned his membership from The Club when he married Keiley Hardin. Tempting and innocent, sweet and sexy, she would never accept Mac’s desire to share her with another man. However, Mac’s fantasies of sharing his wife haunt his dreams. And his passions. Unable to wait any longer to draw his best friend Jethro Riggs into his marriage, Mac invites Jethro to their home with the intention of drawing Keiley into the pleasures that only be achieved when two men love the same woman. But there’s more going on in Mac’s neck of the woods than a little additional pleasure. A past case, a stalker that likes to playing games and his wife is now in the middle of it all. Passion and pleasure, danger and desire combine as forbidden pleasure becomes an addiction none of them can escape.

What I like about Lora Leigh books is they go beyond the hot scenes with kinky fantasy guys - they have plots and characters and visual settings. This one has a well done stalker plot - although I'm not sure the bad guy's hiding place is very feasible.
The romance plot starts 3 years into a marriage where the hero has been treating the heroine like a 19th century maiden - very vanilla even though that is not his usual taste. Now he's bringing along his darker tastes [without discussing any of this with her] and expects her to adjust and accept. He is manipulating her to accept Jethro [hard to take that name too seriously] into their bed with the eventual hope to make the menage permanent. [Again, he does not discuss this with her OR Jethro.] The romance plot is further complicated with small town innuendo and gossip.
Personally, I liked Jethro a whole lot better... Mac needed to be smacked on occasion.
Very useful book if you need to steam the wallpaper off the walls...
