A gentleman's wager never seemed so risky...or so worth it...
Steven Stewart had been invited to a weekend long Western-themed party along with his brother. There was just one stipulation: Steven had to go dressed as Ms. Stella. Considering he was gay, it was going to be pretty hard to catch a cowboy if everyone thought he was a girl.
Chase Montgomery was obsessed both with his lover of three years and with Steven Stewart, a man he had only seen in a picture. The weekend theme party he was throwing was the perfect time to introduce both to the fantasies in Chase’s mind. Now, if he could only get his lover to agree.
Warner James was someone who refused to give up control. While that attitude served him well in the business world, it was hard on his love life. He never dreamed his lover was thinking of bringing someone else into their relationship…until he met Steven. Warner might even be interested in a bit more than just a weekend fling—if he can get both men to understand he was the one in control.

Steven isn’t quite sure how his brother talked him into a weekend getaway dressed as a woman. But when gets a peep show involving two men, he decides maybe this weekend won’t be so bad.
A Gentleman’s Wager by Stormy Glenn is first in her No Place Like Home series. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect when I started this story by Ms. Glenn. Men in drag doesn’t normally peak my interest but I love Ms. Glenn’s work so thought I would give this a try. And I must admit to being pleasantly surprised. While Steven was in drag it was more role playing than an actual need or desire for him. In fact, he wasn’t altogether comfortable with the role his brother talks him into. But as the filling in a Chase/Warner sandwich, he was all for learning those ropes. I love that Ms. Glenn gave Chase, Warner and Steven an opportunity to learn each other. While Chase and Warner were already in a quasi-relationship it was obvious it was no longer enough…at least for Chase. I loved that Ms. Glenn showed us Chase and Warner’s pain. She also showed us that Steven provided the glue to bridge their competing needs. This story was a quick read. The emotions were real even as the relationship happened fairly quickly. I enjoyed seeing Warner fight for something he wasn’t sure he needed without the push from Chase. I loved seeing the men blend and fight for a future together. And I can’t wait to see what Ms. Glenn will give us next in this world.
