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 of 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.
There are depths to Taylor that Draven provides an anchor for.
Taylor and Dravon carry heavy luggage with them. Taylor's gift/curse makes him cautious of getting too close to people. Draven carries a huge emotional load. The wariness, the trust building, the fear, the anguish, the comfort are well developed. There is a heartwrenching tragedy wrapped in a budding romantic partnership. It's good when you can find a complimentary partner that is a rock and a shoulder. The author took us through the lives of Taylor and Draven that gragged our hearts and didn't let them go until the end of the story. Well done!
