Quinn Nicholas has been living with Dev
and Fletch for the past three years. But not the way she
wants to be. She has been renting the extra second floor
bedroom, all along wishing to share their master bedroom
with them. But she knows that’s never going to happen. Dev
and Fletch are in a committed relationship. They are gay.
She is a female. End of issue.
At least, that’s what she thinks.
Until the two ghost hunters coerce her into going with them
to check out a haunted plantation the week of Halloween.
What she learns about the present and what they all learn
about the past changes everything.
In writing Nuit Aux Trois,
Melinda Barron took on what I feel is a difficult
task—writing about an established couple welcoming a third
into their lives, and convincing that third that there is a
possibility of being more than friends. Often times I read
stories that come off sounding contrived and just wrong.
Ms. Barron managed to write this relationship and present it
in a believable manner, making this story one of the better
ones I have read dealing with that issue. Giving the three
of them a history together and strong reasons for their
actions made it all the more real for me. The only real
problem I had with this book was the names. Quinn, Dev and
Fletch. Two of the three were close enough to being asexual
names that I found myself thrown off more than once and
having to remind myself who was who and had what equipment.
Now, having said that, I will say that I enjoyed this
story. Between the modern budding romance and the story of
a misunderstood love triangle from over two hundred years
ago added in, you have a very enjoyable read.
