THE MEN OF LONDON From Charing Cross to Waterloo, there’s no escaping love.
28-year-old Draven Samuels has a tragic past, but as an investigator with a high-profile London company he now gets what he wants. Tough, sarcastic, and sceptical, he has no patience for lies and even less for people who waste his time. Even if they’re as beautiful as the wild and dark-haired Taylor Abelard. Especially when they’re talking over the body of a murder victim.
Psychic Taylor Abelard is used to people calling him a freak. He can see past events and feel the ghostly vibrations of people close to him who’ve passed on. It’s why he doesn’t get too close to the living. But this time, against his better judgment, despite Draven’s mocking rejoinders, Taylor will get closer than ever before. The mystery surrounding a dead friend will lead the two men down a dark and seedy trail of blackmail and lies. Add in the heartbreak of a family tragedy, and events lead them straight into each other’s arms. By the end of this night, all their demons will have risen—and been banished with the dawn.
I loved this book. I couldn’t put it down. I laughed, I cried, and I loved the ending. Draven is such a deep character. He came across dickish and a bit of a jerk but hat’s because he was in so much pain all the time from his brother. Seeing Taylor go through so much with his visions was heartbreaking. He got such grief from his ability, I was glad when Draven finally got it. That’s when I knew Draven was worthy of Taylor. I love that Eddie and Leslie were so protective of Taylor. Of course it made me want Leslie’s story that much more. Plus Clay is so secretive I’m curious what his story is. I hope we get his story too.
I asked Taylor to tell us a bit about what it feels like when he has a psychic vision. I hope you love what he said as much as I do. Read and enjoy!
Deafening silence. White space stretching before his eyes as far as he could see. Mouth dry, pulse slowing in preparation- Taylor knew something was coming at him. His brain was throbbing with soft white noise, a steady hum that echoed and reverberated for what felt like for ever but was probably only milliseconds. He had no sensation of falling. All he could hear was hearing Draven’s anxious voice asking him if he was all right. Taylor wanted to respond but couldn’t. His mouth was dry and tasted of antiseptic and something nutty, like cereal.
All Taylor could do was stare into the void in his mind and wait for the images to come. Once they did, they would be vivid; splashes of colour, random pictures flashing at warp speed in his mind like a slide show gone wrong. As if someone had sped up the presentation and fast forwarded it.
When the vision arrived, he gasped, his heart speeding up with the adrenalin rush. As usual, he wasn’t sure if he was closing his eyes or if they were already closed when he had his visions. He had no idea what he looked like to someone outside of the racing images in his brain. He didn’t know whether he drooled, slept, gaped or looked like a complete village idiot.
The taste in his mouth grew stronger and with it came odours; antiseptic again, male sweat and the soft fragrance of a woman’s perfume. He stood-lay-sat –he didn’t know what he was doing right now really – and as the sights, smells and tastes assaulted his senses, all he could do was hold on for the ride and wait for the slide show to play out.
The man Taylor was blowing definitely didn’t know how the hell to keep quiet. Taylor’s lips were wrapped around his dick, while above him a man stood, panting and moaning, turning the air blue with his curses. Taylor stopped what he was doing, causing the blowjob recipient to groan in dismay, and glared at the sweaty face above him.
“For Christ’s sake, Georgie, can you stop it with the fucking porn noises?” He glanced around him nervously. “This is where I work, damn it, and if anyone hears you they’ll come outside to see what all the fuss is about.”
Georgie’s wide eyes cast a quick glance around the deserted alleyway behind ‘Music Mayhem’ where Taylor was employed, then looked down at Taylor kneeling between his legs.
“Sorry, mate, it’s just that you’re so damn good at this and it’s been a while.”
Susan Mac Nicol is a self confessed bookaholic, an avid watcher of videos of sexy pole dancing men, self confessed geek and nerd and in love with her Smartphone. This little treasure is called ‘the boyfriend’ by her long suffering husband, who says if it vibrated, there’d be no need for him. Susan hasn’t had the heart to tell him there’s an app for that…
She is never happier than when sitting in the confines of her living room/study/on a cold station platform scribbling down words and making two men fall in love. She is a romantic at heart and believes that everything happens (for the most part) for a reason. She likes to think of herself as a ‘half full’ kinda gal, although sometimes that philosophy is sorely tested.
Lover of walks in the forest, theatre productions, dabbling her toes in the cold North Sea and the vibrant city of London where you can experience all four seasons in a day , she is a hater of pantomime (so please don’t tar and feather her), duplicitous people, bigotry and self righteous idiots.
In an ideal world, Susan Mac Nicol would be Queen of England and banish all the bad people to the Never Never Lands of Wherever -Who Cares. As that’s never going to happen, she contents herself with writing her HEA stories and pretending, that just for a little while, good things happen to good people.
