Hmm, I actually think there are quite a few prominent female posters in here who are hinges of a two-guy-vee. That's what the Anita Blake novels were originally about - 'I have two very different guys and I can't make my mind!' So if you are aiming for that chick lit feel, having a straight female lead, starting out as a single woman, then having this complicated dating situation with her two beaus, with temp break-ups and the works (Ariakas had it all down) would be totally marketable and also relatable to monos out there.

Depends a bit if you want to move them all under the same roof at some point, because it has a huge impact on the dynamics. You need a shitload of compersion to manage being the mono arm of a hinge and living together with your SO and their OSO.

Is it just me who is seeing this alpha male - more New Agey guy as the arms of the vee, accepting poly at different paces and eventually hitting it off after a few miles of bumby riding?

I know! Detective Anita Blake - cool; porn Anita Blake - disappointing .
