Now they're back from the war and intent on beginning the future they dreamed of together, one that includes a quiet country estate, horses, dogs, children, and each other.

Audible Editor Reviews

In Love’s Strategy, narrated with gracefully inclined intonations by Alex Moorcock, Valentine and Kurt are two former war buddies and current lovers who wish to spend the rest of their remaining days together in tranquil stability. However, neither man has the financial resources to start the comfortable life they wish to live.

But when they cross paths with Leah Marleston, a lonely well-off widow, the three hatch an unusual domestic "strategy" that was supposed to be convenient for all involved. However, Valentine, Kurt, and Leah, certainly didn’t plan on falling into the throes of a passionate romance together. Oops.

Publisher's Summary

Brothers in Arms, Book Three.

Valentine Westridge and Kurt Schillig are lovers, and have been since the Peninsular War when lonely young officer Valentine let himself be seduced by the equally lonely Kurt. Now they're back from the war and intent on beginning the future they dreamed of together, one that includes a quiet country estate, horses, dogs, children, and each other. Their plan, however, also requires a wife. At the suggestion of a mutual friend, Valentine and Kurt believe the financial security they can offer to impoverished widow Leah Marleston will help her accept the unusual sexual relationship they are suggesting.

Leah is at her wit's end, creditors having taken everything she owns to pay off her late husband's gambling debts. She must find a way to support herself and her two children, or be forced to marry her abusive and obsessive brother-in-law. In Valentine's and Kurt's arms, Leah discovers a passion she never knew existed. Brought together by necessity, bonded by desire, these three lonely people find themselves fighting against all odds for a love that was never part of their plans.

    Story
    "Erotic & a Bit Implausible"

    Yes, the book is hot and includes m/m, f/m, & f/m/m sexual encounters. But the story appropriately flows thereby not including any sex before the 1+ hour mark, which is saying something in a story so short. But once the sex starts, its presence is somewhat continuous, though I wouldn’t say that it was gratuitous. On the otherhand, I would say that the sex scenes were somewhat explicit than but also pretty short, with the exception of maybe the 1st and 2nd sexual interludes. I think there were 3 sex scenes altogether in the book. Those parts I enjoyed; it wasn’t a sex-with-no-plot book. However, I did find the story a bit implausible in its treatment of the h’s and her mom’s reaction to the m/m relationship during that historical time period and doubtful about the quickness with which the kids bonded with the two Hs. So I’m not sure if I’ll pursue more by this author, but I don’t regret the purchase. Finally, the book ends in about 4 hours with the last 23 or so minutes used to give the listener a preview of the next book; book 4 of the Brothers in Arms Series.

    Story
    "I like the stories, will deal with narrator."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The story yes, the narrator...not so much. But I like the stories and want to know who's love life is next.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Kurt, his willingness to take care of everyone. Especially the children.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Naughty!
