Decadent… Sensual… Forbidden…
12 Masters. 12 Desires. 12 Fantasies Come to Life.
Meet the Masters of Blasphemy…
About THEIRS TO TAKE (Blasphemy #4):
12 Masters. Infinite fantasies. Welcome to Blasphemy…
She’s the fantasy they’ve always wanted to share…
Best friends Jonathan Allen and Cruz Ramos share almost everything—a history in the Navy, their sailboat building and restoration business, and the desire to dominate a woman together, which they do at Baltimore’s exclusive club, Blasphemy. Now if they could find someone who wants to play for keeps…
All Hartley Farren has in the world is the charter sailing business she inherited from her beloved father. So when a storm damages her boat, she throws herself on the mercy of business acquaintances to do the repairs—stat. She never expected to find herself desiring the sexy, hard-bodied builders, but being around Jonathan and Cruz reminds Hartley of how much she longs for connection. If only she could decide which man she wants to pursue more…
As their attraction flashes hot, Jonathan and Cruz determine to have Hartley for their own. But the men’s erotic world is new and overwhelming, and Hartley’s unsure if she could really submit to being both of theirs to take…forever.

From Laura Kaye:
I’m thrilled to be celebrating the release of my super hot and emotional Theirs to Take, the next erotic standalone romance in my Blasphemy series, about the twelve Masters who run and play at Baltimore’s most exclusive club. Theirs to Take is a sexy ménage about what happens when two prior navy best friends and business partners meet a woman who makes them admit to desires they’ve never before voice. I think you’re going to love Jonathan and Cruz! I know I adored writing them! Even more fun, there are characters and scenes in Theirs to Take that cross over with the amazing Jennifer Probst’s brand new Reveal Me – and the best part is that both are standalones so you can dive right in!
Now, read in for a taste of Theirs to Take…
“Are they like you?” Hartley asked her friend, Scarlett, who’d recently joined the club called Blasphemy that she’d learned Jonathan and Cruz owned.
“A submissive, you mean?” When Hartley nodded, Scarlett said, “No. They’re Dominants. They like to control the scenes and their partners’ pleasure. Master Jonathan and Master Cruz are alphas through and through.” Scarlett gave her a teasing smirk.
“Master…” Hartley murmured, trying out the word. Aided by her friend’s commentary, her brain offered up all kinds of unhelpful imaginings. Her, on her knees, Jonathan standing over her. Or would it be Cruz? Being pulled over one of their laps, her ass in the air, hands stroking her. But whose hand? Gah. This was a full-on trip to crazytown. “Um, okay.”
Just then, the waiter arrived with their appetizer, but Hartley was too gobsmacked to think about food. As Scarlett forked a piece of mozzarella onto her plate, she looked like the cat that ate the canary. “There’s more.”
“How can there be more?” She almost didn’t want to know. No, scratch that, she really wanted to know. “What kind of more?”
“Take another sip,” Scarlett said, chuckling and tapping at the rim of her wine glass.
Hartley didn’t resist. She took a big drink, her heart racing, her head spinning, just a little, because she’d skipped breakfast this morning.
“Hartley, Jonathan and Cruz do scenes together.”
“Oh.” Her shoulders fell. “So they’re a couple?” Man, that was…kinda disappointing. She totally got it, though. They were beautiful men. Best friends. Had served in the military together and now were business partners. It made sense that they could be together romantically. But, damn, she’d read that flirtation all wrong, hadn’t she?
And hell if that disappointment she was feeling didn’t reveal a thing or two…
Scarlett shook her head. “No, well, maybe. I don’t know. There’s some speculation around the club that there might be something romantic between them. But what I mean is, they do scenes together. Both of them with the same submissive. At one time. You know, like, ménage à trois.”
It was a good thing Hartley had just swallowed, because otherwise she might’ve done a cartoon-like spit take. Heat roared through her body. Because those imaginings she’d just done…that question she’d just asked herself about which one would be starring in those fantasies with her…now she had her answer. They might not make her choose.
“That is the…hottest, craziest thing I’ve ever heard in my whole life,” Hartley managed, her brain possibly shorting out at the thought. Both of them. Together. At the same time. Jonathan’s golden-boy good looks. Cruz’s dark, intensity. At. The. Same. Time.

“You don’t like vanilla”

Cruz Ramos to Hartley Farren
Theirs to Take
Kindle Loc. 416 of 2658
That’s right, boys, Hartley doesn’t like vanilla milkshakes. Lucky for Cruz Ramos and his best bud, Jonathan Allen, Hartley discovers she doesn’t like vanilla sex, either.
Brown-eyed, brown-haired and gorgeous, Hartley Farren is at a loss when her beloved catamaran (cat), Far ’n Away, is damaged in a hurricane. As charters and excursions aboard the cat are her only source of income, Hartley is anxious to have the ship repaired ASAP. She lucks out when Jonathan Allen happens to overhear one of Hartley’s futile attempts to hire a restoration company. As luck would have it, the blond-haired, grey-eyed hunky Jonathan is a part owner of A&R Builds and Restorations. When his partner, the smoldering Cruz, eyes up her, er, vessel, they agree to repair the cat for Hartley.
Hartley, Cruz and Jonathan quickly discover that none of them like vanilla, and soon the two Blasphemy Doms are onboard their new sub, the S. S. Hartley.
Okay, I’m having a bit of fun with this, but author Laura Kaye started it by using the catamaran as Hartley’s boat. A catamaran, by definition, has two hulls with the cabin and sails (and cockpit) sort of sandwiched, if you will, in the middle. It’s the perfect metaphor for this ménage à trois. Brilliant stroke, Ms. Kaye, just brilliant.
Theirs to Take is the third installment in Laura Kaye’s Blasphemy series, and it’s a winner. All three protagonists are well-written and very sympathetic. The pace of the story is quick and the action proceeds evenly. The ménage scenes are both tender and erotic, which supports the plot line of Hartley, Jonathan and Cruz finding acceptance and love within this triad.
Very little of this story takes place in the club, and this reader missed Blasphemy. While secondary characters from the Blasphemy series make welcome appearances, even most of those encounters are in “civilian” society. Notwithstanding more action in Blasphemy, Theirs to Take still rocked my boat.
Laura Kaye’s Theirs to Take contains explicit sexual scenes of M/F/M and D/s situations. A bedtime story for adults only, sailors and landlubbers, alike.
