“We met at an investigation a year ago, when Bobby Meredith went missing. Remember him?” Draven said bitingly. “Little kid with strawberry-blond hair, six years old, who was found in pieces under an oak tree in a field in Sussex.”
He watched as Taylor’s café au lait skin paled and he thought Taylor might pass out from the sick look on his face.
“Bobby?” Taylor said haltingly, and Draven watched his Adam’s apple bob in his throat as he swallowed. “Yes, I remember Bobby…” His voice tailed off and he paled even more. Draven felt a spurt of satisfaction at being able to shake the man’s composure. “You were consulted on that case to help ‘find’ him.”
Taylor’s body was trembling and he had a haunted look in his eyes as Draven continued. “His parents were friends of your parents, if I remember, and they thought you could use your powers to help. You used to babysit the kid from what I recall.” He spat the word “powers” out with the derision he felt. “I was helping a friend of mine in the force do a psych profile for the guy we thought took him, and that was when we met. There in the field over the remains of Bobby Meredith. You were looking at part of his left leg when you passed out, if I recall.” He had no idea where his viciousness came from and he knew it was totally out of line but at those last words, Taylor gave a strangled cry and spiralled senseless to the floor.
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.
