From dodging bullets in war torn Afghanistan to delving into the mind of a serial killer, online news reporter MacKenzie ‘Mac’ MacAllister revels in uncovering the truth. At the moment Mac is working an angle to prove that billionaire philanthropist Daniel Terrebone is guilty of stealing the priceless sculpture Golden Dancer from underneath son of a Nazi Horst Von Berg. Mac only has a few leads but he’s convinced Terrebone is the culprit and he intends on writing the story that proves it.
When the art section reporter falls ill his editor sends Mac to fill in, citing the fact that his parents are well admired, professional ballet dancers. Meeting the enigmatic Trelain Medveyev becomes a life altering moment in time for Mac – not simply because the dancer has a God worthy talent, but because for the first time Mac feels sexually alive. During the interview at the theatre followed by dinner Mac can’t decide whether to strip the man bare and have his way with Trelain or run for the hills.
Days later Mac is still completely twisted up inside and confused when he hears that Trelain is the houseguest of none other than Terrebone, a noted playboy. Thinking with his parts rather than his head Mac confronts his nemesis and the object of his lust at the billionaire’s nearby home. Now, Mac is definitely in over his head because Terrebone also calls to Mac. As the reporter struggles to understand and accept what and who are right in front of him with open arms an enemy moves to strike then regain what he feels is rightfully his and he could care less who’s hurt in the process.
Have a large bucket of ice handy as you dive into Golden Dancer because this story is scorching hot! The sensual moments between Mac, Trelain, and Daniel are intensely orgasmic, yet what does make it so deliciously wicked is that it feels right, it’s brilliantly natural and not in any way forced. Author Tara Lain deftly writes realistic, believable scenes for the men. As their relationships are going super nova the suspense builds on an important subplot which has far reaching consequences for the lovers. Golden Dancer checks all the boxes and burns down the house. I Joyfully recommend Golden Dancer. Dangerously sexy, intoxicating, and complex. Enjoy.
