Beauty must have sensed Karleigh the moment she walked into the barn because the mare whinnied in greeting at her. Lips curving into a smile, Karleigh took a sugar cube from the basket and held it out to the horse. The mare gently took the treat from Karleigh’s outstretched palm, then nuzzled her hand affectionately. Karleigh ran her hand over the mare’s silky chestnut coat with sigh. On the other side of the barn, Loverboy and Highwayman stuck their heads out of their stalls to look longingly at the female horse. Compared to Beauty’s love life, hers didn’t seem nearly as complicated, Karleigh thought. If she was careful and did some strategic planning, she could keep seeing both Holden and Mav without either of them finding out. How hard could it be?
The sound of the door opening interrupted her before she could answer that question. Startled, she turned to see Holden and Mav walking into the barn. Her stomach did a crazy little backflip at the sight of them. It should be illegal to be in a room with two guys this gorgeous.
Mav gave her a grin. “Where were you hiding all day?”
Had it been that obvious? Karleigh ran her hands down the front of her short, silk robe. She wished she’d worn something a little less revealing, but she hadn’t expected anyone to be on the ranch. Not that it would have mattered. Both men were undressing her with their eyes anyway. Heat pooled between her thighs, and she stifled a moan.
“I went shopping with Heather in Colorado Springs,” she said.
Holden hooked his thumbs in his belt, his fingers resting lightly on the big buckle. Karleigh heard somewhere that when a man did that, it meant he was thinking about sex.
“Mav said you two went for a ride and a picnic yesterday.”
Oh crap. She reached up to nervously tuck her long, blonde hair behind her ear. “Um, yeah.”
“You know,” Holden continued. “You should have told me you liked anal sex. We could have tried it out the other night.”
Karleigh stared at Mav in shock, unable to believe he’d told Holden they’d slept together. But why wouldn’t he? Mav had no idea she’d wanted to keep it a secret.
She tensed, bracing herself for the anger she was sure was headed her way, but to her surprise—and relief—neither man looked angry. In fact, they were grinning.
She looked from one to the other. “You’re not mad?
“Why would we be mad?” Holden asked.
She thought it would have been obvious. “Because I slept with both of you.”
“Oh. That.” Mav chuckled. “You’re a whole lot of filly. We don’t mind sharing you.”
She blinked. “You don’t?”
His dark eyes took on that smolder she was coming to recognize. “As long as we do it at the same time. Or more precisely, do you at the same time.” He slanted Holden a glance. “Isn’t that right?”
Holden’s grin broadened. “That’s right.”
Her eyes went wide. “You mean, like a threesome?”
Mav nodded. “Unless you’re not comfortable with that.”
Karleigh chewed on her lower lip thoughtfully. She’d never had a threesome, but the chance to have sex with two incredibly hot guys was too good to pass up.
She looked at them from beneath lowered lashes, her heart beating a little faster. “I didn’t say that.”
“So, what are you saying?” Holden asked.
“Just that I’ve never actually had sex with two men before,” she said. “But I’m all about trying new things. Especially when they sound like they’re going to be so much fun.”
Mav’s dark eyes flared. “Is that a yes?”
She gave them a sultry smile. “It’s most definitely a yes.”
