Men of London series promotion

The Men of London are at again…well, not quite at it in THAT way, you understand, (okay, well, maybe just a little…) but there is another book in the series featuring the lives and loves of the Men in London due out on the 28th July. It’s called Hard Climate and you can pre-order it here.

If you’d like to join the Hard Climate Release party on Facebook, with the chance to win goodies, including some intriguing sexy ones, then head down here and join. It’ll be fun, I promise and you may come away with one of those strange, but erotic gifts.

As a celebration of this being the eighth (and so far) final book in the series, book one, Love You Senseless is going to be made available for 0.99 from 14th July. So why not read the first book in this British series when the promotion starts and if you like it, there’s seven more to enjoy. From chefs to psychics, cross dressers to suit-loving porn stars, and cheeky sassy fashion divas to love’s first kiss or eco-warriors, there’s something to appeal to everyone.

What people are saying about the series so far-

Men of London is a series about different men, from all walks of life, living in London and living their lives. They all have nothing in common with each other but the stories are interconnected in one way or another.

I’m loving this series, I really am! Eddie, Gideon, Taylor, and Draven all play a part here, and for that I am eternally grateful! I love we get to catch up with them as well as delving into the fashion and porn world.

Soooooooo awesome. Seriously, you can never go wrong with Susan’s books. They’re like a romp through a broken heart’s dreams and then kisses to make it all better.

Another terrific pairing of two mismatched but ultimately destined to be together Men of London. This series just gets better and better…

Susan Mac Nicol has a way with words, and her Men of London are just another reason I want to jump in a plane and plan a trip…….I want to find these guys and hug them all, and never let go. Thank you Susan for writing such a wonderful book, one that will be read over, and over again.

I love that this series intersects the lives of these couples. You fall in love with them and even though you don’t get full information you still get little snippets of their lives in the next book.

Men of London brings new and interesting relationships with every instalment. Yet somehow, your favorites from previous books are all there and their circle of friends keeps expanding. It’s a smart way to link the series and keep fans close to their earlier character crushes.

He has the most beautiful eyes…sigh

Well, the time has come. My new release, Sight and Sinners, is the second book in the Men of London series, and will be released on February 23rd. I hope you love the cover as much as I do.

This series is such a pleasure to write. It is challenging in that I am a pantser and don’t tend to plot ANYTHING. Yep, you heard right. I just sit down and hope that the words flow. With a series, however, it becomes a little more difficult to keep track of things and characters so I need to do a little bit more. Taylor (he of the gorgeous eyes and dark hair below) was introduced in my first book, Love You Senseless. He’s a bit of an enigma, a psychic, a loner, a man who finds that other people think he’s freaky and he tries to keep to himself. Of course, everyone knows that is fatal, because when grouchy, sexy Draven comes along, Taylor gets hooked.

 

Sight and Sinners_4 (1)

Here’s the blurb in case you want to know more about it.

THE MEN OF LONDON
From Charing Cross to Waterloo, there’s no escaping love.

SEEING THROUGH…

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.

 THE DARKNESS

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.

You can see the whole cover reveal, the book trailer, and get a chance to enter the giveaway for the book below, the first in the Men Of London series, down on the GGR Promo Grp blog

If you want to read from the very beginning, then may I suggest reading Love You Senseless, which introduces Taylor but is the story of charismatic chef, Eddie (he of the red hair) and moody Gideon, owner of the restaurant where Eddie works.

I do hope you enjoy the series and reading about what the Men Of London get up to behind the scenes and between the sheets…

Whimsy and Weirdness as Halloween approaches

I fancied doing a blog post that was a little tongue in cheek and fun. And in the process, who knows, you might come across one of these collective nouns that you haven’t seen before.

I was tickled pink to discover some recent examples. I thought the ones below were either a little writing related or applicable to the genre I write in.

A Kindle of kittens

A Stud of mares

A ‘Knob’ of pintails (a kind of duck apparently)

A Worship of Writerswriters group

A Clench of sphincters

A Plump of ducks

A Pace of asses

A Grind of blackfish

A Shiver of sharks

A Head of curlews (more birds)

rooster

There was some controversy about the collective noun for cocks – and I mean the rooster like birds that flock around the hens, you fowl minded people.

Some say ‘a Flock of cocks’ others suggest the right word is a ‘Brood’. And in case you really wanted to know, and don’t spend all your time Googling it (as I know you might) apparently it is a ‘Clutch of penes’ (plural for ‘penises’). Others have been suggested but I won’t go into too much detail here.

Then of course there are those that are more cooking related and as you know , I have a book series centred around a restaurant and two chefs. The restaurant is called Galileo’s and it’s in Soho, London.

Scaffolding

Some may simply be someone’s fancy, while others seem to be the accepted use.

A Hastiness of cooks

A Glazing of taverners

A Rope of onions

 

dancing-chefs-cartoon-390x220

A Jam of tarts

An Accompaniment of condiments

A Sproutness of mushrooms

A Promise of barmen

 

I had a particular fondness for this one and for the rather amusing little anecdote I found online that accompanied it. You can read it here Fesnyng

ferrets

 

It’s a Fesnyng of ferrets – apparently this is the real, honest to goodness collective noun for these slinky creatures. I mean, who comes up with these weird names and what the hell were they smoking at the time because I want some.

 

And one last one I thought was rather clever…

A Fraid of ghosts

Happy Halloween everybody!!

Love You Senseless

I was very excited (obviously) about the recent release of my new series called Men In London. The first book is called ‘Love You Senseless’ and there’s a little bit about it below, along with my gorgeous cover.

This is my Pinterest board for the book.

 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.

THE MEN OF LONDON

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

A TASTE OF FOREVER

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.
