Title: Damaged Goods

Author: Susan Mac Nicol

Series: Men of London #7

Release Date: April 28th 2016


Genre: New Adult MM Contemporary Romance

BLURB

Touched by tragedy, love is an elusive dream never to be realised by eighteen­year­old Jax

Grady­­until he discovers his secret admirer and receives the sweetest gift he could ever desire. THE SWEETEST GIFT

Tragedy and horror shaped Jackson Grady's life, leaving him orphaned and scarred. At

eighteen he's ready to claim his future, but who could love his disfigured face and damaged

soul? Definitely not a big, burly, beautiful Irish Traveller who is entirely the stuff of dreams. Dare Rowan didn't mean to become obsessed with the blue­eyed man he first saw across a

field, but that porcelain skin and innocent air demanded another meeting. Jax has the face of a

wounded angel, and the rest of the young man is as heart­breakingly perfect. Jax is beautiful in

every way and teaching him about love and life will be something Dare will embrace. Like

unwrapping and savouring the candy at the shop where he works, Dare will show this young

man everything Jax desired but never thought he'd have, and take Jax to new highs while he

holds him through the lows. Between them, they’ll find out just how sweet life can be.

EXCERPT

He wasn’t stalking his fantasy. He wasn’t. Dare clamped his lips together mutinously as he hunkered down behind a towering oak. The

tree lay on the outskirts, in the garden of a large Georgian house. From a distance, Dare

watched as the beautiful blond man he’d been observing, thank you very much, tenderly placed

what looked like flower bulbs in the rich soil. The man—whom Dare had first called Angel,

though he now knew his name was Jax thanks to the younger kids playing in the garden yelling

to him—leaned over. His pert jean­encased backside pushed out into the air and Dare

swallowed, mesmerised by the enticing sight. A pang of guilt washed over his skin at the

sneaking knowledge that yes, he could actually be deemed a stalker.

“I’ve only watched him a few times,” Dare murmured under his breath. “It’s not like I’m some

pervert checking through the windows. I mean, the guy is in plain sight and there’s no boundary

fence, so why shouldn’t I look? Anyone would. God, he’s gorgeous. A flawed angel with those

blond curls and blue eyes.” His wistful voice echoed in the quiet of the forest surrounding the large house called Castaways.

It was some sort of place for homeless kids, Dare thought. He’d found this vantage point by

accident one day when he’d been out gathering bits of greenery for his boss, Sally, an eccentric

seventy­year­old woman who owned the sweet shop he’d managed for the past three years. Some weeks ago, Sally had decided she wanted to display certain wildflowers in their place of

work. She was also heavily into aromatherapy at the moment, so she sent Dare out each week

to pick new blossoms and plants to further her ambitions to be a “flower child,” as Dare teasingly

called it. He hadn’t minded. It had become a pleasant routine to take the short tube ride to

Camden to perform what Sally loftily called his “ecological duties.” This secluded part of the

woods around the area was the best place she knew of to find the flowers. Dare had caught

sight of the beautiful man in the garden tending to a bunch of what looked like unruly kids, and

now, having seen his Angel, Sally could send him out every day and Dare wouldn’t mind. “But that would make me a stalker,” he said to himself. “So I’m not one now—yet.” He huffed

and ducked back behind a bush as Jax turned to stare fixedly in his direction from underneath

his wide­brimmed straw hat, an item Dare found rather endearing. Read the Men of London series:

About the Author

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 self­righteous

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. Sue is a PAN member of Romance Writers of America and is a member of the Romantic

Novelists Association in the UK. Links: Website | Facebook | Twitter | Youtube | Pinterest | Amazon | Goodreads
