Author Name: Susan Mac Nicol
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.

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.

EXCERPT – SIGHT AND SINNERS
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.”

I’ve loved Susan’s work since Saving Alexander. Her stories always drag me right into the place and time and situation the characters are in. It’s no different with Sight and Sinners, though at first I was kind of confused about how Taylor looks like. It might not be important to some people, but to me I can enjoy a story better if I can picture the character in my mind. The book always says that Taylor has this coffee colored skin, tanned skin, etc. I was wondering if he was indeed black, but I wasn’t sure either. That’s why I asked Susan who inspired her for this story.
Then she sent me these pictures, and I went, hmm, all right. 😉
So it was settled then about the characters. Now on to the story. I love it, how can I not? I love Draven and Taylor together. I love the sex scenes which are hothothot. But what do I love most? Well, is it wrong if it’s the heartbreaking part that made me fall in love, hard? I couldn’t stop reading at that time though it was almost time for me to go to the office and it was made worse when I ended up sobbing and leaving home with red and slightly swollen eyes. It was so sad and I could just imagine it as I lost my sister when she was only three.
I started this story slightly doubtful if I’d love it as much as I love Saving Alexander, and finished it with heart clenched and myself almost too worked up to go to work. This book is hot, sexy, loving, and so angsty. I can’t recommend it more.
