Blog Tour, Review and Giveaway: Sight and Sinners by Susan Mac Nicol

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.

Denise’s Review

I loved Gideon and Eddie’s story, in Book 1 of The Men of London story, so I couldn’t wait to sink my teeth into the second book in this series, Sight and Sinners. 

This is Taylor and Draven’s story. Taylor is a psychic, specifically one who sees people who have already passed, which leaves him with nightmares, and sometimes in a catatonic state. Meanwhile, Draven is a bit of a man-ho, but very quickly turns his ways, once he meets up with Taylor again. To say their first meeting was inaspicious would be understating it. However, once Draven truly sees the power in Taylor’s gift, he cannot deny it, even finding it frightening in its  effects on Taylor.

As these two work together to solve a mystery around a friend’s death, they heat up the bedroom, and begin to fall in love. The challenges ahead for them both brought a bit of an ugly cry, I must say. Taylor having to give devastating news to the man he loves, then finding himself turned away for it, was tough to read. What should have brought them together tore them apart, until Draven realized how wrong he truly was.

The situation they dealt with would be challenging for anyone to deal with, causing many to turn away from their loved ones. With Taylor’s powers added to the mix, it could bring some level of comfort, for sure, but also a lot of anguish. Watching these men walk through these hours together gives you hope that love really can help to heal hurt.

I couldn’t help but cry for about the last 25% of this book (which Ms. Mac Nicol gleefully enjoyed when I told her), but the love was just stunning between these men, and I couldn’t help but be gleeful myself at reading their story. And having some glimpses at Taylor’s best buddies, Eddie and Leslie was great! I am excited to see what kind of man can take on such a beautiful man as Leslie. That will be a lot of fun, for sure!

As always, Susan Mac Nicol reads are amazing, and enjoyable, and I always look forward to reading them again! And one of the things I have enjoyed about this series so far has been that the two stories are vastly different, despite being based around Galileo’s, the restaurant. Very different love stories, for very different men, but in the end love will win! 🙂

Sight and Sinners (Men of London Book 2) gets 4.5 pieces of eye candy, and looking forward to the finish to this trilogy.

One of London’s up-and-coming chefs, Eddie Tripp has just the right recipe to drive tragedy from the mind of Gideon Kent—and leave him senseless with desire. 

From Soho to Norwich, there’s no escaping love. 

An award-winning chef with his own restaurant and an inexhaustible passion, Gideon Kent once had everything. Then came tragedy. It stole more than Gideon’s home. He hasn’t cooked since. 

Until Eddie Tripp. Fun-loving and vivacious, the Norfolk redhead’s a real up-and-comer in Gideon’s kitchen—and other places. Slim where Gideon’s broad, easy-going where Gideon is growly, he and Gideon seem polar opposites, and yet Eddie conjures flavors that would tempt anyone with a taste for perfection. The sauce of love is already simmering, and this pair is about to dine on the most delicious dish they’ve ever prepared. Because Eddie’s been Gideon’s missing ingredient all along.

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.
