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’ve been asked to talk about my ten favourite characters –but not from my books. Well, I have a fairly eclectic mix here. Some are from books; others are from the movies or super hero comics. I hope you enjoy my choices and perhaps we even have a few of them in common. It’s strange to see that they all men, I can’t recall a woman character I really enjoy. There must be a hidden message there somewhere…
Adrien English – Josh Lanyon’s amazingly quirky, lovable and feisty bookseller and aspiring author from his Adrien English series. I just loved him and his bumbling into trouble, prickly, ‘I can do it on my own’ persona.
Dexter J Daley aka Dex from Charlie Cochet’s wisecracking, tough and sexy homicide detective turned Defense Agent from her ‘Thirds’ series. I am so anxiously waiting for the next instalment in this amazing series. He is just so damn funny and a memorable character indeed.
Sherlock Holmes– everybody knows I love me a bit of Sherlock in the form of Benedict Cumberbatch (swoon). Having read most of Arthur Conan Doyle’s novels about this arrogant, highly intelligent and pioneering detective, I have to include him on my list.
Christy Castle from Cody Kennedy’s book, Omorphi. Christy is an unforgettable masterpiece of a character, one so rich and diverse in the making that he leaps off the page with a soft whiff of fragrance and embraces you in his warm arms. I read this book over and over again and always find a special delight in doing so.
Cole MCGinnis from Rhys Ford’s ‘Cole McGinnis’ series. Cole is a man who simply attracts trouble wherever he goes, but comes out of it with both guns blazing and a fierce determination to protect those he loves. His tough guy exterior hides a heart of gold.
Christopher Robin Andrews from In Pieces by Alexa Land. Christopher is a beautiful soul, troubled by his past, generous to a fault, vulnerable and tormented, but with a great capacity to love. He’s simply such an endearing, adorable character. I love damaged men and am currently re-reading this whole series.
Tony Stark from Iron Man. I love successful, strong minded men with drive and ambition and that certainly describes the arrogant and sarcastic Tony Stark with his quick witted repartee and no holds barred attitude. He’s brilliant, creative and everything I quite fancy in a man.
The Joker in Batman, the part played by Heath Ledger. Terrible in his psychosis, charming in some ways and a complete villain in every sense of the word, this was a part played with sheer majesty.
Alex Delaware from Johnathan Kellerman’s books – When the Bough Breaks, Blood Test and the rest of this magnificent series. Alex is highly intelligent, empathic and a psychologist of note. I love the mastery of the puzzle in these books and the fascinating glimpse into the human psyche and what makes people tick. Alex is a genius at getting into people’s heads…
Finally, I have to choose – Khan from Star Trek, of course, played by Benedict Cumberbatch. Sexy as hell, dangerous, with a voice to die for and a way of moving his body that makes me tingle all over…well I did say I was a Cumberbatch fan, so you should have expected this.
On a complete aside, I thought you might enjoy this article – male British characters in order of ‘bangability’. I thought you might find it stimulating…
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.”
About the Author:
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.
