Powerful yet tormented modern warlock Quinn Fairmont must initiate the silver-eyed Cade Mairston into the world of witchfinders, Withinners, and what can happen when two men fall truly, madly, deeply in love.
THE WORLD IN SHADOW
In modern London there lurks a warlock, Quinn Fairmont. Dangerous, powerful, tortured, sharing his body with the soul of an ancient Welsh sorcerer, Quinn is never alone—and never wholly himself. He fights against all those who would exploit his kind. He takes pleasure where he can find it.
In the forest of Hampstead Heath, Quinn’s hometown, Cade Mairston appears to him like a waking dream. Lithe, lean and silver-eyed, he evokes feelings in Quinn unlike any other: lust with true affection, immediate and shocking. Cade is clearly more than he seems. And yet, if a man of the world, Cade is innocent. He knows nothing of warlocks, witchfinders or Withinners. He knows nothing of what he is, what he might be, or what he might feel. For him, the story is just beginning. Magyck, peril and passion await.

In the men’s room, Cade stood with wide eyes in a pale face, his trembling hands clutching the sink basin. The only other patron in the bathroom glanced at him curiously but said nothing. The stranger finished at the urinal, zipped himself up and left the room with a nod at Cade who gave a distracted half smile back. What the hell is wrong with me? How can I feel this way about a man I’ve just met? It’s insane. I have the boner the size of China and my arse is begging for the man to fill it. I’ve never felt this way before. Ever. He could hardly be still, the sensation in his groin overpowering. Whilst Cade had been watching Quinn speak, all he could think about was biting his bottom lip and ripping that white tailored shirt off his shoulders. The attraction was so extreme he’d thought he was going to be sick. Cade leaned down, drinking some water from the tap, taking a handkerchief from his pocket and wetting it, then patting his forehead. The sensation had partly gone and he was a little more back to normal. But in Quinn Fairmont’s presence, he seemed to be nothing more than a bag of screaming lust with a throbbing hard-on between his legs that he couldn’t control. He took a deep breath before leaving the bathroom. He started as he saw Quinn leaning against the wall, elbows folded, a brooding look on his face, his blond hair looking as if he’d just run his fingers through it.
Christ, the man looks like pure sex on legs.
“Do you make a habit of this, Mr. Fairmont?” Cade said grimly, wanting to take some control back. “This is the second time I’ve found you lurking around.”
Quinn smiled lazily and unpeeled himself from the wall. “You seemed a little distressed. I wanted to see you were okay. Again. I told you I have a Sir Galahad complex.”
The corridor was empty of people, leaving Cade feeling exposed. He tried to move past him but Quinn blocked his way, moving closer to him than he could stand.
“I’m not some shrinking violet,” Cade sneered as he tried to push past. But just the smell and the feel of the man’s body as he brushed past was intoxicating and his head swum. “I’m a big boy and quite able to take care of myself.”
Double Alchemy: Climax
Powerful modern warlock Quinn Fairmont found ecstasy with the silver-eyed and not-quite-human Cade Mairston, but to know true happiness the pair must best both the shadow of a long-ago lover and an ancient enemy who seeks to destroy love, light and all they hold dear.
A BLINDING LIGHT
It begins with a Book of Shadows discovered by a London coven. The grimoire is as dangerous as it is rare, which is why it evokes modern-day warlock Quinn Fairmont’s desire. He collects objects of great power and beauty—like his lover, Cade Mairston.
Against all odds he and Cade found each other, but their perils have just begun. First is the ex-lover who once held Quinn in thrall. And, someone has been killing warlocks. Could it be one of his own kind? There are those too who would challenge Quinn’s power in their quest to overthrow him as Grand Master. Or is the danger something darker, something invoked inadvertently, rising from the shadows, building from the very inside of a man until it brings an end with a quick flash of light? Of the truth, the surface has only been scratched. Now Quinn and Cade must go deeper and find both answers and an end. They must learn what lurks in the hearts of men…and whether it seeks to love or destroy.

Susan Mac Nicol is a self- confessed bookaholic, an avid watcher of videos of sexy pole dancing men, geek, 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.
