Blog Tour + Excerpt + Giveaway: Double Alchemy by Susan Mac Nicol

Double Alchemy 
Release Date: March 24, 2014

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.


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.

“See? How do you explain that? It’s magyck. Something I was born to do and something which you can see because you’re Fey.” He motioned at the vase, “This was just a parlour trick. But you can see much more.”
Cade’s face was pale. “How did you do that? Are you like that magician guy from Bradford-Dynamo? He does things like that.”
Quinn scowled fiercely. Being compared to a sleight-of-hand TV magician, however good he was, really insulted him. Taliesin reared in indignation at his words as well.
Show this upstart some real magyck, Quinn. Something he’ll really have to believe. He’s really stubborn, this one, isn’t he? There was a hint of avarice in Taliesin’s voice, something Quinn wasn’t truly comfortable with. But he smiled wolfishly as he obeyed his Withinner.
Cade still looked at him in disbelief. Quinn moved toward him, his blood starting to sing again as his primal desires surfaced. Quinn fought them back as he reached out and took Cade’s hand. Cade gazed at him, his mouth parted, as Quinn drew small circles on his rough palm, whispering the incantation. The air around them changed, becoming misty and warmer. Cade’s eyes darted from side to side as the houseboat slowly disappeared to be replaced with… nothing. It was as if they were alone in a sea of mist with only the water below— deep, dark, still water that rippled and gurgled as if still lapping against the houseboat. But the boat was gone.
“Can Dynamo do that?” Quinn muttered sulkily.
Cade finally found his voice. “What the hell are you, Quinn? How can you do this?”

Climax: Double Alchemy #2
Release Date: May 22, 2014

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.


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.

About the Author
Susan Mac Nicol

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.
