Public Affair by Kristian Parker Blog Tour

Release Tour. Kristian Parker’s Public Affair.

London is in the grip of a heatwave, but something else is causing Nihal Varma’s temperature to skyrocket.

The CEO of a PR agency, he’s used to dealing with glamourous and beautiful people. He’s woken up with a lot of them too.

Yet when Carl Carrington, MP and candidate for leader of the opposition, walks into his office, Nihal finds himself a bag of nerves. And that never happens. He soon discovers that not only is Carl stunning to look at, he radiates decency. In Nihal’s world, that’s a very rare commodity.

When Carl insists on working with Nihal only, he’s entranced. Could this MP be interested in a man whose past is… chequered, to say the least? Nihal ‘I don’t do relationships’ Varma really hopes so. Even if getting involved with a client, especially such a high-profile one, is not just crazy. It’s insane.

But for once Nihal is out of control and that makes a man do very strange things…

“Nihal Varma. You get more handsome every time I see you.” The man himself strode across the lobby.

“Dieter,” Nihal said.

They shook hands. Dieter had a strong grip that Nihal had enjoyed on many other parts of his body. At 6ft and toned, Nihal was a commanding presence, yet Dieter still towered over him.

“How are you doing? I haven’t seen you in a while. Hello, Bee.”

“Oh, you know how it is,” Nihal replied. “Not much to launch when it’s this bloody hot.”

In reality, he and Jeff had been making an effort to find cool venues off the beaten track. The Nickleby would still host the big stuff. In the world of public relations, it didn’t do to stagnate.

Dieter looked as if he didn’t believe a word of it. Ever the professional, he forced a smile on his face. “Well, you’re here now,” he said. “You’re in the Copperfield room.”

“We know the way. Thank you, Dieter.”

They left the handsome man in the lobby. Walking down the corridor to the room they had booked, Bee nudged him. “He’s gorgeous and still interested. I don’t know why you don’t go for it.”

Nihal sighed. “He snores.”

“Fair enough,” Bee replied. “I had a boyfriend who snored so loud I got evicted. He dumped me a week later. Twat.”

“They’re all twats, Bee, my love. The sooner you learn that one, the better.”

“Not all of them, surely,” Bee replied.

“Maybe not. Who knows? I’m long gone before I can find out. Relationships aren’t my bag. Once was enough, thank you.”

The Copperfield room was a hive of activity. A large ice sculpture in the shape of a martini glass dominated the room. Young men and woman in very skimpy costumes with the Dream Ices logo emblazoned on them walked around, trays strapped to them like vendors in old-fashioned cinemas.

The vibe was thirties glamour. The hotel leant itself perfectly to it. A DJ stood in the corner, spinning the latest chilled tracks.

“It’s a decent-sized crowd,” Nihal said to Bee.

“Free ice lollies in this weather? It’s a dead cert.”

“They’re all a bit static though,” Nihal mused. He grabbed an ice from one of the trays. “I’m going to find Jeff. Can you do a circuit of the room? We need to liven this bloody place up.”

Bee scurried off. Nihal glanced around the room and saw his business partner standing by the window with a lolly in hand.

“I think it’s impossible to eat one of these without looking sexy, you know,” Nihal said as he sidled up to him.



Nihal wasn’t sure if this might either set him back ten years or open up a new world. What he did know was that he was absolutely ready to find out.



Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is the fourth book in the series – you can read them as standalones, I think, but you will get a better understanding of the characters who live in Queens Crescent if you have read the previous ones. Mrs. Wimpole is very entertaining at all times!

Successful at PR, but not so much at relationships after his ex got him into all sorts of trouble, Nihal is unexpectedly attracted to a politician aiming to become leader of the opposition. Through a series of misadventures, their closeness could be a problem, but watching them work it out is very enjoyable.

Carl has done everything to keep his image clean and his personal life away from politics, so getting involved with a PR guy publicly was never in the plan – yet somehow, that's what has happened. With his opponent in the race to be leader playing dirty, this could ruin his one chance at success.

I enjoyed the mix of politics, PR, power, and the camaraderie of Queens Crescent, I am sure you will too!



Concentrating did not appear to be on his brain’s agenda. He couldn’t get the smell of Carl’s lemony cologne out of his nostrils or the image of that smile from his mind.


Author Bio

I have written for as long as I could write. In fact, before, when I would dictate to my auntie. I love to read, and I love to create worlds and characters.

I live in the English countryside. When I’m not writing, I like to get out there and think through the next scenario I’m going to throw my characters into.

Inspiration can be found anywhere, on a train, in a restaurant or in an office. I am always in search of the next character to find love in one of my stories. In a world of apps and online dating, it is important to remember love can be found when you least expect it.
