To Clan and Conquer (Clan Beginnings #1) by Tracy St. John 4*
BLURB: Starting a clan is not on ambitious First Officer Tranis’ agenda; he is too busy building a career in the Kalquorian fleet. It’s a good thing since the Nobek who captures his interest belongs to the captain and the Imdiko he can’t stop thinking about is not his type.
Weapons Commander Lidon feels his best days are behind him. The Imdiko he wants avoids him, and the new Dramok first officer is obviously too young to consider an older, crippled Nobek. However, an unexpected invitation makes Lidon wonder if there is something more to look forward to after all.
Head doctor Degorsk hides behind an offbeat sense of humor that shocks and keeps his fellow crewmembers at arms’ length – exactly where he wants them. But one Nobek refuses to be discouraged and the new first officer is too much temptation to deny himself.
As the trio is pulled together by attraction and pushed back apart by fear, an old enemy threatens the Kalquorian Empire. With no choice but to rely on each other for survival, Tranis, Lidon, and Degorsk are forced to expose their greatest terrors to each other…and themselves.
Contains elements of BDSM, including physical discipline, anal play/intercourse, bondage, Dom/sub play, forced seduction, multiple sexual partners and homoerotic situations (m/m/m).
My Review: I was attracted to this book because of both the cover (such pretty guys) and the fact that it was actually m/m/m and I haven't read many good ones of those in the past. I was hoping that it would be worth the read and I was delighted to find that it was. Yes it was full of lots of sex scenes but they were all very well written. In fact they were really very hot and yet somehow very emotional too. As for the rest of the story it was a well written science fiction story with lots of action and intrigue that blended within those sex scenes in such a way as to make the sex scenes an integral part of the whole. It is always a pleasant surprise to come across an author who can write an erotic story without the erotica swamping the main storyline into the mere blahness of porn but Tracy St. John has managed to avoid that trap and gives the reader an exciting and hot threesome adventure that is worth every penny spent on the book.
