Tri-Omega Mates, Volume 1 (Tri-Omega Mates omnibus 1; books 1-2)
AUTHOR’S BLURB: SECRET DESIRES [Siren Menage Amour 17: Paranormal Menage a Trois Romance, M/M/M, Werewolves] 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? 5 Blue Ribbons: “All three men are lovely and have their own individual quirk that not only endears them to your heart but also have you enjoying the tension filled scenes that the men have to go through in order to find the best compromise that work for them. I absolutely enjoyed SECRET DESIRES.” –Romance Junkies ***
FORBIDDEN DESIRES [Siren Menage Amour 26: Paranormal Menage a Trois Romance, M/M/M, Werewolves] Gregory had been waiting for over six years for Ryland to grow up so that he can claim him. When he finally does claim him, Gregory learns that by doing so, he has endangered Ryland’s life. Ryland is a Tri-Omega and needs two mates to keep him grounded and safe. And he hasn’t found his other mate yet. 5 Blue Ribbons: “Stormy Glenn has done what few authors have been able to do. She has given us a better book with Forbidden Desires, the second book. Sex scenes are definitely not vanilla – they are hot, aggressive and in some cases very much unexpected. I absolutely love this book.” –Romance Junkies. “Best Shape Shifters Book Nominee 2008” –Love, Romance, and More Cafe.
MY REVIEW: It pokes fun of stereotypical romances and shifter books in the first story, which is a little humorous. The second story doesn’t perfectly match up to the events in the second, but it’s close enough that it will work for most people. I just happen to be a bit more *ahem* anal or OCD about details than average. In both stories, the character fell in love within a matter of hours, without anything other than seeing that the others were their mates. However, I will attribute that to both the fact that it’s normal in shifter books, and the author’s bio states she believes in love at first sight. In the first line of the bio, I think, which probably makes it a big contributing factor.
It’s an interesting twist to shifter books, and I generally like m/m/m (or more), so I’m not complaining about the premise. But the writing needs growth. Maybe this was the first the author had published? I didn’t look.
Tri-Omega Mates, Volume 2 (Tri-Omega Mates omnibus 2; books 3-4)

Stolen Desires: Siren Menage Amour: Erotic Alternative Menage a Trois Romance, M/M/M, Werewolves] Ryce Hunter loves his mate of five years, Saul. He doesn’t love that every Friday, Saul goes out to find some young stud. Fed up with feeling unwanted, Ryce goes into town to find his own stud. What he finds is Cary, his other mate. Until he has his second mate, Cary won’t let Ryce claim him. Ryce assures him their other mate is Saul. However, all is not as it seems. Saul is driven to protect his mates at any cost, including sacrificing his own happiness. ** A Siren Erotic Romance
MY REVIEW: In the first story the main character points out his choices were taken from him and his rights violated. And he makes an excellent point. So good, in fact, it leaves you feeling like screaming “rape of some sort” about it, in his defense, to the lug heads who just don’t want to get it. And kick their butts.
In the second story, the secret carried on for the reader way too long. It got old and repetitive. But the interactions between the characters were some of my favorites. So far. Though I haven’t been very impressed with this series, it’s good enough and I’m OCD enough, I will complete it.
A Tri Omega Mates Christmas (Tri-Omega Mates #4.5)
AUTHOR’S BLURB: Jake and Lucas are planning a special surprise for Leyland to celebrate their first Christmas together but when Lucas disappears on his way to town to get their gift, can Jake and Leyland survive the wait or will their Christmas be ruined?
MY REVIEW: This is really just a short interlude, bringing you back into the life of the first trio. And it seems like it’s also there to remind you of the other person on the ranch, probably as a set-up to him being next in the series. I’m not sure, as I’ve not read further or looked further into the series, if there is any more. But that’s what it feels like. It feels forced and like the author was grasping at straws to find a way to do it, too, without it being obvious. Hence the feel of it is a little like taking your medicine, rather than savoring a treat. You know you need it, but you’d rather have something else.
Unspoken Desires (Tri-Omega Mates #5)
AUTHOR’S BLURB: Daniel James, required by his alpha to attend a wolf council meeting at Vourdala Island, never expects to run into his mate, Brom McGregor. Several years ago, Brom kicked him out of their pack, saying he would never mate him, that he didn’t love Daniel. Running into Brom is almost more than he can handle when Daniel knows he still loves the man.
Brom McGregor is shocked to see Daniel, the man he’s always loved and never forgotten. He’s even more shocked when his own jealousy makes him claim Daniel as his mate, especially since Brom is already married with two small children. To add to Brom’s problems, there’s a third mate, Jaryn, whom Daniel doesn’t even know about, someone that Brom has spent their years apart protecting.
Faced with a hunt to the death ordered by his father because he mated Daniel, Brom is forced to flee with his two small children and Jaryn. The only place he can think to go is to Daniel. Can he convince Daniel that he sent him away all those years ago to save his life even knowing that he’s putting Daniel in danger again? Will Daniel forgive him in time to save Jaryn’s life?
A Hunter’s Desires (Tri-Omega Mates #6)
AUTHOR’S BLURB: Nikolai Miroslav was sent to the frozen north of Russia to investigate a pack of Tri Omegas. He can’t find a single trace of them, but he does find Vasiliy Federov, the sweetest-smelling man he’s ever met.

Better yet, somehow during their sexual escapades the previous night, they mated each other.
Unfortunately, the danger to them is real, and a wolf hunter is bent on killing them both. When Serge Dmitriev attacks the house, Niko finds himself with another mate, one who has no idea he’s a wolf. The man doesn’t even realize that during his attack on Nikolai and Vasiliy, they forged a mating bond between all three of them that will only end in death.
Now, Nikolai finds himself with two mates he never planned on having, a basement full of Tri Omegas, an insane Beta trying to kill him, and a band of hunters wanting their heads. If Nikolai, Vasiliy, and Serge have any hope of getting out alive, they will need to work together, and that means accepting their mating bond. But is what they might have together worth changing their entire lives?

If they can learn to stand together instead of alone, they might have a chance of living through the mess they are pulled into. If not, they are in danger of losing more than their lives.
