Tri Omega Mates #1
How do you answer a handsome cowboy when he asks if you want to take a ride on his horse, especially when he guarantees that it will be a wild ride? For Leyland the answer is simple: Hell, yes! But what if his cowboy already has a lover?
Leyland banged one hand against the steering wheel and turned the key in the ignition with the other. He heard nothing coming from his car but the slow dwindling wwwrrrr sound of his engine dying.
"Please, baby, don’t do this to me, not today. Start for daddy, come on, baby," he cried desperately, turning the key again and again. Nothing. Leyland let his head fall against the steering wheel, banging it there several times.
Lifting his head he looked around. There was really nothing as far as he could see. Wide open fields, fences, cows, some horses, and snowcapped mountains off in the distance. It just wasn’t fair. He was stuck in the middle of nowhere, his car dead, and his damn cell phone not getting any kind of reception. He felt doomed.
Leyland wasn’t even sure they had cell phone towers out here, wherever here was. BFE, if you asked him. He still couldn’t quite believe that he had agreed to come out here for a photo shoot at the insistence of his agent. He knew he should have stayed in the big city.
He just wanted to take pictures. He was almost obsessed with taking pictures. But there was a limit, and he had reached his. However…
Leyland quickly grabbed his camera from the passenger seat and flipped the cover off of the lens as he reached for his door handle. Climbing from his bright neon green Volkswagen Beetle, he looked around at the countryside laid out before him.
There was just something about the peaceful quite. With the exception of the occasional bird, silent reigned. It was eerie. Leyland climbed up on the roof of his small car, standing to his feet.
His hands itched. Before he knew it, he had his camera up to his eye, clicking away. He occasionally lifted his head to change the distance on the lens or to look around for more scenery to snap.
Looking at one particular hill off in the distance, his breath caught in his throat as he saw a lone rider riding over the grass-covered ridge. Leyland couldn’t make out any of his features. He was too far away.
That just made the scene before him all that more alluring. A lone rider, his light colored cowboy hat hanging low over his face. The white of his shirt reflected the sunlight shining down on him. The tightness of his faded blue jeans contrasted with the light brown of the horse under him. Perfect!
Leyland clicked away as the rider rode ever closer to his position, marveling at the darkly tanned skin and rippling muscles that he could see the closer he rode. He was magnificent. Leyland wanted nothing more than to keep clicking away until he ran out of film.
He didn’t even realize the man had ridden up to him until he was right in front of him. The man reached up and pushed the brim of his hat back, clearing his face from the shadows of his hat.
Leyland inhaled as he narrowed his lens to his strong square face. Even through the lens he could see that the man was breathtaking. He had a strong rugged look to him, his jaw and cheekbones chiseled in stone. The hint of a five o’clock shadow on his face accentuated his full lips.
Leyland slowly lowered the camera, taking in his powerful body—wide shoulders, a hint of brown hair showing through the opening of his shirt, strong muscular thighs. Oh, yeah, this guy was hot with a capitol HOT!
"Hello, handsome," Leyland smirked, trying to give the guy his sexiest look. He totally ruined the effect when he took a small step towards the man and his feet slipped off the edge of the car roof. Leyland let out a small yelp as he started to go down. He could see the ground below coming up fast to meet him. He quickly closed his eyes, fearing the worst.
Then suddenly, he stopped cold. He could feel strong muscular arms wrap around him. Leyland opened his eyes and looked up into the sexiest deep copper eyes he had ever seen. He reached up with his hand to lightly touch the side of the man’s face by his eyes.
"I don’t think I have ever seen that particular shade of brown before. It’s beautiful," he whispered. He suddenly realized what he was doing when the big man started chuckling. His face swiftly went from awe to embarrassment, his face burning.
He tried to sit up but the big man’s arms were still wrapped around him. He didn’t look like he had any intention of letting Leyland go any time soon, either. Feeling his face turn even redder, Leyland turned to look up at him.
"Um, could you let me go?"
The man chuckled, his voice deep and raspy as he spoke. "I don’t think I want to let you go just yet. You feel pretty good right where you are."
"Um, okay. But it’s going to be real hard to get my car fixed sitting in your arms."
"I still don’t see the problem here," he chuckled again, taking Leyland’s camera and setting it inside his car through the rolled down window.
"Listen, cowboy," Leyland began, patting the nice man on his chest, and oh what a nice hard chest he had. Leyland knew he was going to start drooling any second now. "I—"
"What?" Leyland looked up at him, confused.
"My name is Jake, Jake McAlester. Of course, if you wanted to call me honey, or darling, I’d settle for that too. And while I do like the way you say cowboy, lover would be even better."
Leyland eyes widened as Jake nearly growled the last part. This big strong sexy cowboy was making a pass at him? Hallelujah! Leyland wanted to wiggle around and jump for joy. He couldn’t be in more agreement. He wanted this man, and bad.
"And what if I like cowboy better?"
"Then cowboy it is." Well, wasn’t he just the chipper one? "But I’m still hoping lover will be in there somewhere."

Leyland is a photographer on assignment when his car breaks down. Luckily for him, he's rescued by a handsome, strong cowboy. The two men are drawn to each other from the beginning and on the way to Jake's ranch a bond is formed that neither can do without. Things become a little more complicated when the two make it to the ranch and Leyland is introduced to Lucas. It’s only after some misunderstandings are cleared up that the three men realize that they were always meant to be together.
Stormy Glenn's Secret Desires is an excellent story and the beginning of a new series. The love felt by the three men is a deep and abiding one that is the key to keeping one member of their family safe. I would recommend this story to anyone interested in m/m.

4.5 CHERRIES - Whipped Creal Reviews
I truly enjoyed every minute of this story and I believe that the characters are what made it a great read for me. Leyland, Jake, and Lucas are fascinating individuals each with their own strengths and weaknesses who come together to form an interesting threesome. Although at times I felt Leyland was a bit immature and annoying, he was a remarkable character and a nice complement to his two partners. Jake, the Alpha male, was a strong character who has some jealousy issues to deal with as he didn’t expect to share his mate…even if it is with his best friend and lover. And I really felt for Lucas, Jake’s Beta wolf and lover at the beginning of the story as he faced losing his best friend and lover to someone else. He had a lot to deal with so it was interesting to see him realize that Leyland was meant for him as well. Both Jake and Lucas will do anything to keep Leyland and their concern and caring comes across very well. And as I said things quickly heat up for Leyland and his lovers when it comes to the sexual side of their relationship…almost too quickly. The three share a touching and highly sensual relationship and their love scenes definitely heat this story up from the very beginning.
The ending of this story and the threesome’s relationship really touched me as I felt for the men. I don’t wish to spoil anything, but let’s just say that the three have a lot to learn throughout the story about their bond and what it means for them both mentally and physically. The whole concept of a tri-omega and the relationship between the three men fascinated me as we learned more about what it means.
What also fascinated me was the pack of werewolves living on the ranch. Jake is the Alpha of a small pack of werewolves who were ostracized from their original pack for being gay. You can’t help but feel for these men and I longed to know more about the various members of the pack. With a few secondary characters who look like they will get stories of their own, this was a great start to what promises to be an interesting series. -- Reviewed by Lilac
