Image of Eastern Ambitions (Compass Brothers)

This writing team has written a story rife with feeling, with the exception of a group sex scene that seems rather stark and devoid of emotion. The characters are wonderfully crafted in this third installment, but you’ll need to read the fourth for the conclusion.

Sam Compton leaves the Compass ranch with a dream: to make a big impression on Wall Street. He’s on the fast track for VP of his investment firm when a conniving woman outsmarts him for the position. To make matters worse, he receives word from his brothers that his father is dying. Cindi Middleton has made a niche for herself on the ranch as bookkeeper and all-around party girl for the men — generally all at once. When Sam and Cindi meet, there’s an immediate connection that they take to the bedroom. Sam’s parents are soon matchmaking, despite conflicts between the couple. Neither realizes they have similar sexual kinks and are compatible. Both Sam and Cindi are in for some surprises. (SAMHAINPUBLISHING.COM, dl $4.50)
