Three's a magic number in this steamy love triangle set in a British stately home. Alice Brown has just landed her dream job. Property manager at Davenport Manor, a British stately home. It's only a nine-month contract to cover maternity leave, but it's the boost up the career ladder she so desperately needs. Unfortunately, things don't get off to the best start, when Alice finds her boss, Jeremy Davenport, in a compromising position. Far from being embarrassed by what's happened, Jeremy turns things around on Alice and makes her out to be the one in the wrong. So when he and his best friend and head of security, Ethan Hayes, throw an ultimatum at her, she's so stunned and confused that she goes along with their indecent proposal. When the dust settles and Alice has time to think about things, she realises that perhaps it isn't such a bad thing. There are worse things she could be doing to advance her career, after all.

This is a very sexy story, so if you're not into sexy stories with a little bit of kink, this may not work for you. Alice was sweet, slightly awkward and likeable, and Jeremy and Ethan were delicious. I loved that all three protagonists were genuinely nice people and that they got along well as their relationship developed. The sexual relationship developed really well over the course of the story, but I would have liked to have seen more emotional depth and development of the characters, as their personal relationship developed. Overall an enjoyable and fun read, and a great diversion on a rainy afternoon.
