Description:

Midnight Messages

Lois Cloarec Hart

Luce Sheppard can’t ignore it any longer. She has to make a decision and time grows short. But refusing to make a decision is a decision, and she retires to bed, prepared to accept the results of her non-decision. That night an unexpected midnight visitor lands on her doorstep. Keira Keller, a distraught teenager, has lost her way home after a disastrous party. Luce steps in to help and in doing so receives answers to questions she didn’t know she’d asked.

Batteries Not Included

L.T. Smith

Alex Stevens is a workaholic and a loner. Nothing and nobody can get past the cool exterior and solitary walls she has painstakingly created.

Until one night in October. One night that makes her step back and reassess what it means to be alive.

 

Lost and Found

Emma Weimann

Laura Sullivan flees to her grandparents’ old cottage to escape the haunting memories of finding her brother in bed with her girlfriend. But even in rural Ireland, tranquility is easier to find than peace–especially when she meets an otherworldly being that leaves her a reminder she didn’t count on.

Chrysalis

Joan Arling

Tara is a nice little girl. Her friends, on the other hand, are… peculiar… A breeze of a story. Or the other way ’round.

 

Sisters of the Moon

Diane Marina

The week before Halloween, Nicole joins her friends on a local ghost tour. In addition to visiting spooky sights and haunted grounds, she meets an enticing woman who makes her spine tingle. Who is the mysterious stranger? And how will the encounter end?

 

Wolf Moon

Erzabet Bishop

Seeking diversion from her job as a bookstore manager, Lindsay goes to a Halloween party at a convention center—and finds much more than she bargained for.

Werewolf Detective Taggert responds to a bomb threat at the convention center. An explosive situation, especially when raw chemistry hits them full force.

Can Lindsay open her heart and accept the fierce love of a red-hot shifter, or will they go their separate ways?

 

Love Bites

R.G. Emanuelle

New Orleans. Vampires. Jodi goes to the former and finds the latter. She feels a mysterious pull that leads her to The Big Easy and to freedom, passion, and the startling revelation of what having too many daiquiris can make her do.

I am extremely excited to be a part of this anthology! Working with Ylva has been one of the most interactive and best learning experiences of my writing career. Kudos to Day, my wonderful editor. Thanks to Astrid for seeing a gem in the story of a werewolf detective with a penchant for redheads. On October 30th, the Liz McMullen Halloween special will air and you can hear the story read by yours truly, complete with dark and stormy night effects. Some of my fellow authors will also be on the taping, so I hope you will join me!

When Stacy discovers her sex-on-a-stick ex at her Hollywood Halloween blow-out, she decides to show the cocky homicide detective exactly what he’s been missing. But she’s not the only one plotting revenge, and Ian’s the only one who can save her.

Review:

This anthology was smokin hot and had enough tricks and treats to make even the choosiest romance addict smile. All of the stories were good, but I connected with three out of the four.  The first story “Seducing Mr. Right” was grab some ice cubes and crunch hot.  I love stories where you have a little subterfuge going on and this one was sexy billionaire in disguise.  The second story was just as awesome. Hot foxy costumes (literally) cause some trouble when a girl decides to seduce her best friend at a Halloween party. “Tempted by His Best Friend” by Cari Quinn made me want to go out a buy a fox tail and ears for this Halloween!  The third story was a little distracting and I didn’t finish it. The forth one, “Protecting What’s Theirs” was a great cop drama with some D/s thrown in for good measure. It left me all tingly and wanting much, much more…

All and all, I enjoyed the anthology, but felt the third story was going around in circles a little too much and I stopped reading it. Brazen Halloween stories are smokin hot and I hope you do another one very, very soon.
