Mingo and Francois are ready to walk down the aisle any day now.  Rushing to get all the last minute details taken care of, the last thing these two lovers expected was for someone from Mingo’s past to walk through the door. 

I love the Mingo McCloud series by Mr. Llewellyn and not just because of the hot sex, either.  The characters are wonderfully written, drawing the reader easily into their story and leaving them wanting more, once the books come to an end.  The secondary characters are just as engaging and at times I really feel for the two leads, Mingo and Francois, as it is not unusual for their friends and family to cause a bit of mischief in their desire to help the men out with whatever case they may be working on.   

As with each story in this series, the two men find themselves trying to help an innocent individual out by solving a crime.  In Manacled, that innocent individual is Mingo, which leads to a few hilarious moments, especially in the beginning.  The fact that Mingo’s misfortune happens so close to his upcoming wedding causes more than a few problems, as you can imagine.  I was surprised by the outcome, especially the reason behind the scam and the individuals involved.  I can’t wait to see how the men’s wedding goes, as I am sure it will be far from normal.
