Darkness of Night: Episode One by C.S. Duffy Blog Tour Stop

 

Exclusive Excerpt:

The fact that Stuart Henderson was one of the worst serial killers alive wasn’t what fascinated Lorna, though he was. He had been convicted of killing seventeen women, though he confessed to thirty-seven murders altogether, and according to Lorna’s Google search, the FBI suspected that the true number was even higher. He was a monster. Abhorrent. A vacuum of humanity.

 

Lorna was fascinated.

 

She remembered tagging along to a sleepover with her sister Greer when she was about eleven. She’d forgotten now why she had been foisted on the older girls, probably their parents had a night out to go to or something. But she did remember that they watched The Silence of the Lambs.

 

The girls all squished together on a giant blow up mattress in Greer’s friend’s spare room, stuffing their faces with sweets. Lorna mostly remembered that it was freezing; even though her feet were stuffed into a sleeping bag along with Greer’s, they were like blocks of ice. Within minutes, most of the older girls were freaking out, begging for it to be put off.

 

Lorna was dying to see the rest but afraid to speak up as she wasn’t even supposed to be at the party. Luckily, Greer’s best friend Suzie, who was nicer to Lorna than Greer was most of the time, noticed the expression on Lorna’s face and announced she wanted to watch the end too. ‘

 

You owe me, wee one,’ she grinned as the others went to the other side of the room to make up routines to Take That’s new album. She and Lorna snuggled under about seven sleeping bags to watch Hannibal Lecter escape from that mad giant bird cage thing that Lorna thought was brilliant. To this day, vintage Take That could conjure images of Anthony Hopkins wearing the security guard’s face.

 

After the sleepover, Lorna went to the library and checked out out the Hannibal Lecter books, persuading the doddery wee librarian (she was probably about thirty-five, but when you’re eleven everyone seems ancient) that they were for her mum.. She read them all, then moved on to books about real serial killers. When her friends were exchanging lurid fantasies about Brad Pitt and Robbie Williams, Lorna was staring out the window, daydreaming about catching the Zodiac Killer.

 

She never told anyone about it. Everyone already thought she was a weirdo. Why confirm it?

 

It wasn’t surprising then, that she had been glued to Stuart Henderson’s trial, sitting up all night for weeks on end watching the live feed from the court in the States. At the time she supposed she was fascinated mostly because she felt as though she could have known him. He was from just down the road from her – they could have sat next to each other on the number 88 bus coming home from town. He could even have friends in common with Greer.

 

However, when she heard his name mentioned the night after she came home to find her flat ransacked, she knew it was fate.

Synopsis

Ten years ago, Dominic Walsh faked his own death. With no true identity, it wasn’t hard. But if he’d stayed, he would have been drawn further into a life he’d never chosen. He has friends and family at Ward Security now and has managed to escape his dark past. There is only one thing he truly wants.

Abraham Stephens.

When Dom was first tasked with watching over his friend’s father, he didn’t expect to fall so hard for the gorgeous silver fox. But Abe is interested in friendship only. He’s at a point in his life where he wants something permanent, not a romp with the sexy redhead who happens to be the same age as his son.

But Abe finds himself drawn deeper into Dom’s life when cryptic messages start appearing—ones that frighten the skilled security specialist. The more Dom tries to hide what’s happening, the more Abe wants to help him.

And maybe, just maybe, he’ll find a way to trust the strength of the bond Dom understood from the start.

Excerpt

Dom insisted on helping him clean the kitchen, and it took all Abe’s concentration to not attack the guy. He wanted to lift him up on the counter and—

“That’s it,” Dom announced. “I can’t handle the way you keep looking at me.” He threw the dishtowel he’d been using and backed Abe into a wall this time. He braced both hands on either side of shoulders and stared hard at him. “We’re doing this at a slow pace. I mean it.”

“Stop being so fucking bossy and come here.” Abe grabbed him and yanked him in for another kiss that rocked his world. The man kissed like he wanted to devour Abe, like he could pull air from Abe’s lungs to survive on that alone. He had a naughty tongue normally—Abe never knew what was going to come out of his mouth—but it was also playful and so damn sensual when he slid it into Abe’s mouth. He wanted that tongue all over his body.

They kissed until his lips became sensitive, to where every rasp of Dom’s lips sent nerves tingling like he was being zapped with tiny bursts of electricity.

Dom pulled back and he kept going until his back hit the island. “Take off your shirt.”

Abe didn’t even hesitate. He was too far gone to worry about his forty-nine-year-old body at this point. If Dom didn’t like him as he was, if he didn’t want to do this again, then Abe would take this one shot to see him, to touch him, and he’d love it. He stepped back and pulled off his Henley and stood there, letting Dom look. “Yours too.”

“In a minute,” Dom breathed as he leaned back against the island and leisurely ran that hot gaze over Abe.

It took all his control to stand still, because he wanted to maul Dom. There wasn’t another word to describe what he wanted to do. Grab him, throw him against the wall or on the couch and just…take him apart. Feel all that searing skin against his. Rub his cock against that taut body…

Dom grinned in that oh-so-wicked fashion of his and crooked a finger. “Come here.”

But Abe had a better idea. He grabbed him and pressed him back into the wall. Dom didn’t wait for him to take the final step close before his hands were on Abe’s chest and his fingers were combing through his chest hair. He ran one palm down Abe’s belly, which didn’t have the bumps and ridges of muscle that Dom’s had. But he couldn’t discount the complete desire he saw in those green eyes and the very hard dick showing in his jeans.

Abe slowly reached out and ran one finger down that hard ridge, and the back of Dom’s head thunked on the wall. “If I come in my pants, no comments about the age thing. I’m thirty-two damn years old and you have me so hot, I’m about to be humiliated for life.”

“Oh yeah?” He popped the top button and unzipped Dom’s jeans. He didn’t push them down—just left them open. “Spiderman? Really?”

“I didn’t think you’d be seeing my boxers tonight, or I would have worn the Batman ones. They’re way hotter.” Dom smirked.
