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.

EXCERPT
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.”

I would like to thank Nicole Colville for taking part today and for writing this amazing guest post . . .I hope you enjoy it!

GUEST POST: WHAT HAVE I LEARNT IN THE PAST YEAR
You never stop learning
It’s an old saying, but a true one. No matter what you do in life, there are always new things to learn, ways to improve and grow.

This month, I looked back to one of the first books I wrote, beginning to get it ready for the print version. I sent the old draft off to my editor for a read through as she and I only started working after on book six of my Hidden series and I knew it needed her careful eye on it.
Meeting my editor and friend Jessica has really been the biggest learning curve, and I she and I have worked together for almost two years now. In those two years my knowledge of punctuation and grammar has grown a lot. I knew even without reading the draft I would see a huge change in not only my writing style, but in my use of commas. I love comma splices and run on sentences. Even now when I write I can’t help it, but now when I read through the finished doc, I spot them (most of them) and change them.
When I received it back, it was a real eye opener. A year ago, I wouldn’t have spotted most of them, but reading through her changes now, I knew I wouldn’t have even sent her the draft without changing most of them. It was a great feeling, because there in the doc was proof of how far I’d come.
When I got this blog post, I thought about the last year and all of the things I achieved and how I’d grown as a writer/editor/formatter/publicist…. Self-publishing requires all of them lol But even if you go through a publisher, I think editing and formatting is something you should be aware of, and all of us are the best people to promote our work, because we love it and believe in it more than anyone else will ever do.
The more knowledge I have about what I do, the more confidence I have. When I first started to publish my work, I didn’t have the great team around me I do now. Finding people who you can trust and work well with, apart from writing the book, is very important. Knowing you can turn to your cover designer and editor when the time comes and working with them to create the best possible book you can, makes your life so much easier and your book much better.
Writing with others, sharing your work, discussing it with other authors, reader—it all helps you grow and learn. A lot of my friends started off in writing groups, fanfiction and others, and I thought it was wonderful because when I started, I had no one. I didn’t go on line, didn’t join up in local groups. I didn’t plan on this you see. Becoming a writer was a bit out of the blue. I’d always loved writing, but never thought of it as anything other than a hobby. In some ways I’m glad I didn’t plan it out, or join in with groups because I think at that point, it would have been too much of a shock to the system and I had little confidence in my work, so I think I would have just given up. Hopefully I would have met friends who would support me, like I do with my friends.
That’s what I pass on. Understanding and help. I build confidence and belief in others because I know that’s the biggest thing which is lacking in most new writers. Self-belief. We all struggle with it. It seems so long ago when I was worried about publishing a book, or sending it off for someone to read, but in reality it’s not and I’m aware of just how much support some people need.
What I’ve learned, I pass on in any way I can. I post information and writing tips, get involved in groups and support new writers. Anything I can do, I’m happy to do it, because I think back to when I started and I knew nothing and no one, and I don’t want it to be that hard for others.
I decided a couple of months ago that the best way to do share my experience and to help was to walk through the process of writing, editing, publishing and marketing a book with new writers. Me and my friend came up with the idea of an anthology called Confidential Encounters. A collection of short stories based around office romances and I offered four places to people in my private group. I knew there were people in there who I would love to encourage to further their writing career, and I waited to see who would be brave enough to do it. All four I had in mind choose to do it and we’re working through the process of writing their books now. After they’re finished and we’ve worked on their books together to make them as good as they can be, each person will work with my editor to get firsthand knowledge of edits and what to expect, because trust me, the first professional read through is a shock to everyone. You think you’ve got it perfect and you’re super proud of yourself and the book and then you get the doc back and its red everywhere. You feel dejected when there’s no reason to feel that way. Every mistake is a learning experience, and if you didn’t know you were making the mistake, it’s how you learn how to change future work. Every comment left by an editor / proof reader / beta, they’re all opportunities to see you work differently and I value every person who works with me.
One of the things which helped me advance in my style and knowledge was working with my writing partner Emma Leya who’s a much more experienced author than me. We’ve written two books together, and through those months, I’ve learned a lot and that’s hopefully what I will be passing on to the first five authors in the team this year. The anthology is going to be a yearly thing, and I plan on asking other people in 2016 to join in. I see it as a springboard for them, one where they take the knowledge and move on to longer books which they can either choose to send off to publishers, or self-publish.
Confidence, or having people around you who are confident in you, is one of the most important part in writing. Remember, at some point in your work, you’ll be the only one who believe in it, so it’s important to not lose that and to fight on. Never give up, and when you feel like you want, to, don’t!! Reach out and speak to people. Never be afraid to ask for advice or help. You’re surrounded by people who was once right where you are.
Nobody knows everything and nobody will ever stop learning. I know people who have been writing for twenty years and they’re still learning new things.
Don’t panic and think you know nothing. That’s not true. It’s a journey we’re all travelling on. We’re just at different points. That won’t change, they’ll always be people at different levels and it’s up to all of us to reach out and help those who need it. We all have something to offer. Just been there to chat and to discuss plot or characters is a big help. Having friends who you can message and know you’ll be encouraged to keep going is sometimes the only thing you really need to hear.
Take each day at a time. Don’t try to take everything on board at the same time, it’s impossible. It’s not a race, and whatever you write isn’t carved in stone. You can change it. Go back and amend at any time.
Don’t be frustrated and stop. Keep going!! Just write it out of your head and onto to the page. That’s the best advice I can give.
Don’t get hung up on the little things. Everything can be tweaked, but getting the main idea out is sometimes the hardest point.
Stop looking back. Don’t constantly re-read your work. This is something I fell into doing and it stops your flow.
Always move forwards. Don’t read previous chapter unless you really have to for reference. You get stuck changing things. This is difficult, and I won’t lie and say I don’t do it, but I’m telling you it makes things harder and I’m working on not doing it. 😀
