Rating: 3 Cups
Special Agent Lorelei Randall did not expect to find herself at a place called Sanctuary. After a horrible car accident she wakes up with no memory of how she came to crash and she is not certain if she can trust her two “rescuers”.
Adam Stone, a former sniper, is used to giving orders. He also is suspicious of Lorelei as her supposed memory loss is very convenient.
Lucian Duquesne has been friends with Adam since they were in grade school together, and he was Adam’s scout-spotter in the Marines. He is the less serious of the two and wants nothing more than to play with the sexy woman who arrived on their land with a bang.
Lorelei quickly comes to the conclusion that Adam and Lucian can be trusted, but she still tries to keep her Intel on the down-low. As the hours turn to days, the marines realize they share a passion for Lorelei unlike anything either has felt before. As the eroticism heats up, the three warriors delve into a world full of passionate trysts in a ménage relationship. But even as their passion begins to turn to something deeper, Lorelei understands that unless she can solve the mystery of who is trying to kill her, she will always be looking back for the person responsible for her near fatal accident.
A Strength of Arms is a very sexy read. I love how Lucian’s joker personality offsets Adam’s more serious nature. Lorelei herself comes across as a woman warrior who is used to being in the thick of danger. While the storyline, danger, passion, and mystery were fantastic, I was put off by some of the language used throughout this tale. Lorelei’s words that were used during the sex scenes with both of her lovers went way over the top and left me cold. Other than that, Danica St. Como has started a new series that has caught my interest and I cannot wait to see who will be up next in The Men of Sanctuary Series.
