Rating: 4.25 of 5 Stars


Police officer Milo and Fireman Daniel have been dating off and on for six years, but it always seems more off than on. Just when their relationship reaches breaking point, someone enters their lives, unknowingly helping the confused couple work through their differences.

Falling in love with the man Daniel rescued and who Milo is investigating as a potential arson suspect isn’t a conventional start to any relationship, especially one which includes a mysterious blond who’s afraid to stop running. But they both see what didn’t work out as a couple, could work out as a ménage.

Daniel and Milo unite to help save Samuel, but quickly realise he’s not the only one being saved.

With so many obstacles in their way threatening to destroy the future they desire, all three have to fight to create a bond too strong for anyone or anything to break.

Meet the first three men in my Manchester Ménage Collection.

Caroline’s View:

I always say when a ménage is done well you can’t beat it and this ménage was done well.

Nicole Colville writes fairly long stories that give you a chance to get your teeth into them and really get to know the characters.

Milo and Daniel have been an on again off again couple for the past six years and at the moment they are off again. Daniel is a firemen and even though he was the most easy going out of the pair he was the one I warmed up to last. He was a little churlish, failing to see what was right in front of him and perpetually horny!

Milo is a Police Officer and although he comes across as cold as and unfeeling he was the one I got from the beginning. He was loyal and totally in love with Daniel but he didn’t know how to say the words leaving himself open to misinterpretation.

What they probably needed was to sit down for some counselling but what they actually got was Samuel.

When Daniel pulls a beautiful waif like woman from a burning building his life is turned upside down. The beautiful woman is in fact a beautiful man and Daniel can’t get him out of his mind, so much so that when he finds out Samuel is in trouble and has nowhere to go he takes him home with him for a couple of days. Already at odds with Milo the situation worsens when Samuel becomes a suspect in the fire and Milo has to question him.

Samuel has his own secrets and some of them seem to be chasing him. As his story slowly comes out it becomes clear he is in danger and so is anyone trying to help him. Where Daniel seems to be led by his hormones where the young man is concerned Milo shows more restraint but still a close relationship forms. It seems Samuel might be what the two men need to mediate between them but before they have a chance to explore anything more Samuel is thrust back into his old life and the race is on to find him.

I was both looking forward and dreading this story. When an author has given you a series with such strong characters as The Hidden Series I am always a little worried I won’t like any new characters they introduce us to. This is one you should look forward to and I am very intrigued for the next one now and can’t wait to see how it works out!

  1. Thank you Caroline. I, like you, was worried I wouldn’t be able to create characters that had the strength and depth like the men in Hidden. This was my first solo full length novel outside of my series, and it’s a different style from what everyone is used to from me. I knew I loved it, and the men, but it’s great to hear back from someone who loves the series and who thinks i did good on this one.

    It made me smile when you say you connected to Milo because out of the three of them, i found i enjoyed his company the most, and so far Danny is the favorite with readers, so you’ve given me another reason to smile.
