Sight and Sinners by Susan Mac Nicol

The murder of a shared friend leads a high-profile investigator and a psychic into a mystery involving lies, blackmail, BDSM—and into each other’s arms.


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.

From Charing Cross to Waterloo, there’s no escaping love.

Sight and Sinners is the follow up to Love You Senseless. We met Taylor and learned about his gift briefly in book one, now in book 2 it's all about Taylor and how he "copes" with this gift. Seeing things from his POV showed how hard he has it when he zones out, how much he truly was keeping from his friends. When Taylor gets an unexplained vision he doesn't know who the tragic incident belongs to. He needs an emotional connection to a person to have a vision concerning them. When the nightmares stop he's still unsure who it happened to.

When Draven sees Taylor at another table having dinner his interest is peaked. He thinks he's sexy and would love to see more of Taylor, but when Taylor is on his way over to offer Draven a drink, Draven remembers how he knows him. They worked together on a case where Taylor used his "skills," Taylor helped find the missing child's body but Draven is still a non-believer. When Taylor remembers he's taken right back to that place and those feelings, which causes him to pass out.

Draven is pretty tightly wound. He's definitely the asshole Taylor accuses him of being. Can such a strong dislike be overlooked when Taylor finds out a friend's death may be murder?

I love how Ms. Mac Nicol has the line between love and hate blur with this one. It's still a light-hearted read but it's more intense than Love You Senseless. The vision are more graphic (obviously since you are seeing Taylor's POV) but it has more feeling which I loved. I can't wait to see where The Men of London take me next!

I demolished this book in less than one day.
We met Taylor in Love You Senseless which is book one of the Men of London series.
Taylor is a psychic, he has been since he was a little boy. It plagues his life as he has no control over it.
Draven doesn't believe in Taylor’s gift and he is a bit of a knob about it.
I really enjoyed Taylor and Draven's relationship. The most difficult things in life are worth fighting for.
From Taylor's gift to Draven's secrets I loved reading it all.
It was a great read and I love all the Britishness throughout the book.
Read it you won't be disappointed.

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.
