Blurb: 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. 

Their mouths parted, Daniel moaning as Milo slipped his tongue inside him, teasing him with soft caresses until he plunged deeply into his mouth, fighting with Daniel’s tongue as their bodies began to grind together in that perfect dance. Both were so in tune to the other, both knowing just what to give to drive the other insane with desire.

“I need you, Danny. You can feel how much I need you.” Milo pressed the ridge of his swollen cock against Daniel’s, both groaning as their lengths rubbed against each other. “What I need, I can only get from you. You’re the only one on my mind. Even when I'm alone, you’re the one I see, who I hear with me, who I feel under me, over me, against me. It’s just you, Daniel. It has been for three years. There’s no one else.”

Daniel’s hands were in Milo’s hair, clinging onto him tightly and forcing their mouths to collide again, his hips raising up and crushing their cocks against each other. They were both breathing too fast, their bodies crying out for more when Milo lifted from Daniel’s swollen lips.

“You don’t have to lie to me.” Daniel moaned as Milo worked his hand over his cock, the sweatpants he wore tenting over his length.

“I’m not lying.”

Daniel’s eyes focused more on him, the truth finally seeping through that thick skull of his. “Milo…”

Milo fisted his hand tighter in Daniel’s hair. Seeing him like this turned him on too much. “Tell me what you want.”

Daniel paused, but his body rose up to Milo’s, begging for what it needed before he could say the words. “I need you inside me.”

Q&A with Nicole

What's it like being a female writing M/M romance?

At first, before I published my first book, I had no idea just how many women wrote M/M, so it was a relief. I’ve heard things on the grapevine about women getting bad press about writing in this genre, but never anything person. To me it’s very simple, men write romance and erotica with women and men, do they get the same response as women do when they do it? What about paranormal writers? Should they not do it because they don’t know what it feels like to be a vampire or shifter? Hmmm, no!
We use our imaginations, research, connect to our characters. There’s no rule which says certain people shouldn’t write certain things. The only limits are on your imagination and what you make of it.
To any women out there who want to write M/M are worried about, I say do it, but do it as yourself. Don’t be hesitant about saying you’re female, bi, lesbian (because I know many women in relationships with other women who write M/M) People want to know you, and although we all like to keep certain parts of our life private, a big part of being a writer is interacting with your readers in a way there wasn’t a few years ago.

Do you have male friends you can ask for research or do you do it all online?

Okay, I get asked this question all the time, and I’m sure other female writers of M/M do too. So, to be blunt…
1)     Women know what it feels like to enjoy a man sexually. We know what it’s like to perform any number of sex acts and we know from communicating and watching our partner how and what to do so that we can blow their minds.
2)    Women like anal sex!!! No, they do. Done correctly—preparation is important for non-regular use lol—it can be very enjoyable.
3)    If you have an open and honest relationship with your other half, then you talk about what feels good and how it feels for them.
4)    Straight men enjoy receiving anal play. No! They do. Okay, not all of them, but more than ever are willing to experiment, either by themselves, or with their partner.
I guess men used to be afraid of any contact to their arse as being ‘gay’ but that’s not the case now. Straight men watch gay porn. They do!!! It’s sex, and any kind of sex gets men hard, that’s a fact lol, especially if you’re involved and ‘encouraging’ them ;) I know lots of M/F couples which include lots of different toys in their sex life… for their hubby lol
Yes, there are differences between two men, but no two people are the same and we all enjoy different things in different ways.
There’s no set rule as to how a M/M scene should play out, just like there’s no rules about any other pairing. It basically comes down to the individual characters and what feels right for them. Hard and Fast. Slow and tender. Emotional or cold. Wild and dirty. The list goes on and on, pick one you like and that’s the one which is right for you.

What made you get into this genre?

I started writing my first book with a few characters. It was based on two brothers, Jamie & Angel, and it followed their love life. I quickly realised my two men had such complicated lives I wouldn’t be able to fit them all in one book without cutting corners, so I chose to follow one at a time. I picked Jamie, who happened to be gay, and that’s simply because I was more connected to him. That’s how I fell into M/M. I still write about bisexual and straight men, but because the main story follows Jamie, the series became M/M with those characters keeping in the background in minor parts.
I found out I love the men I write with, and it’s now the only genre I read. I don’t know if I’ll ever do my M/F book now, maybe in time I will, but right now I’m happy to continue on as I am.

Does your family read her books?

Well… yes and no. :D My husband is my biggest supporter and I love him more for it. He’s so proud of me and encourages me in any way he can. He’s not a big reader of anything, but he has read my work and enjoyed it. ;) He helps with a lot with my works in progress, choosing names, helping with cover decisions, even coming with an ending to one of my books because I went dead. He’s amazing. Best hubby ever!
My mum doesn’t really read many erotic works from any genre, but she fully supports me and is one of my Facebook friends, so she sees and hears everything lol She joins in with the fun and attends my book launches and cover reveals and whenever she talks about my works, she’s always proud. My step dad shares my twitters and FB posts and isn’t ashamed of me at all :D
All of my family know what I write, if they don’t understand or don’t agree then they keep it themselves, and that’s the way I'd like it to be, because I’m very strong in my support of LGBT relationships and I wouldn’t want to cause any issues by getting into a huge disagreement.
My first book is going into print in April and quite a few of my family will be getting one, I guess if they haven't read one of my books, then that may be the time they will do, so I’ll keep you posted on how it goes. :D
I know some people have had really bad experiences, but mine has all been positive, but my heart goes out to those who don’t have support at home, because it’s needed.
