Paranormal Romance HOWLOWEEN Blog Hop

Greetings, goblins and ghouls! I'm so thrilled to be part of this fun hop. Thanks ever so much to our devilish hostess Jane Wakely! Don't forget to visit her at www.hopswithheart.blogspot.com



Halloween is one of my favorite times of year. The dressing up, the pumpkin carving, all these activities appeal to the wondrous child inside me, and we all need to indulge our inner kiddies here and there.

Rather than a post, I thought I'd share the pumpkins I carved this year with my youngest son. We don't get too fancy (I'm useless with a knife- you should see me cook!), but I am rather proud of these creations. Perhaps you'll share one of yours with me!

And what I consider to be our piece de resistance!

Now I won't deviate totally from romance today. I'm also doing a giveaway to make things exciting! One reader will receive a copy of my latest paranormal romance Predator's Fire, Gemini Island Shifters 5.

How to win this copy?


Comment below and tell me about your best Halloween experience. Please leave me your email addy as well so I can reach you.

Blurb:

When Nina Suzuki discovers the body of her best friend Janine, her world turns upside down. Things go from bad to worse when Janine’s corpse seems to transform into that of a large, brown wolf. For the first time, Nina is faced to confront all the clues indicating her BFF was not what she seemed. A letter from the dead woman opens Nina’s eyes to a strange, new world. The same letter warns of a sinister group called the Alpha Brethren, and urges her to find Killian Moon of the Ursa Fishing Lodge and Resort on Gemini Island.
Killian Moon is a jaguar shifter and teen mentor at the Ursa Lodge in Northern Ontario. He may be a comfort and inspiration to confused teen shifters, but he also has a fiery past. His past comes back to haunt him when human Nina arrives at the resort, demanding to speak with him. Demanding answers. Can he trust her with knowledge that will not only change her life, but possibly endanger those around him?
As Killian begrudgingly tutors Nina on all things shifter, their mutual curiosity flares into passionate need. Once they touch, once they succumb to desire, there is no going back. Killian realizes Nina is his mate and they both begin to comprehend the terror threatening those on their shifter-friendly island. He is forced to confront the tragedy in his family and determines to protect Nina at all costs.
But can they protect everyone they love from a cult of dangerous shifters, intent on horror and destruction?




Excerpt:

“How much longer do I have to wait? I want to see Killian Moon. Now.”
The feminine voice, strangely soft despite its insistence, echoed deep in his being, awakening his jaguar. The great cat roared to life, turned toward the office and inhaled deeply. Its eyes flashed in interest.
In...recognition?
Killian breathed in at the same time, catching the scent of cherry blossoms through the door. The sweet perfume, mixed with human outrage, proved a heady distraction, making him forget why he was there. Shaking his head, he tried to dismiss the odd sensation as Ryland opened the door.
The door swung open and the first person he glimpsed was one of the clerks from reception, trying his hardest to placate the unexpected guest. “I’m sure Mr. Snow and Mr. Moon will be right back.”
And then his gaze landed on the petite human. Tapered Asian eyes, so dark and mysterious, but rimmed with circles of exhaustion. Smooth, cinnamon skin hinted at a mixed background. Wearing no makeup, she appeared younger than she must be, but her presence and keen eyes pegged her at around thirty years old. She had a riot of curly, black hair and feminine curves that ought to come with a warning. He could see it now. Beware: this woman’s body will cause insanity in men. Even as she gesticulated at the clerk, her boobs jiggled in such a way his throat went dry.
He pictured her in a corset, her breasts spilling over delicate lace edging, and almost forgot his name.
This Nina Suzuki was damn hot and his jaguar seemed to agree. The animal licked its lips, its golden gaze assessing and appreciating every detail, from her rounded hips to her come-hither rack.
Yes, the creature uttered on a frenzied breath.

  3. I can't recall a special Halloween. As a kid each year was fairly similar and as an adult I've never gone to a party and trick or treaters rarely visit in my area.

  4. My sister and I had some fun times on Halloween. She dressed up as a gangster (a sexy one) and I was a goddess (of course) one year and we had so much fun. Our Halloweens together always tend to be great times.

  8. Since I´m a Swede, in Sweden LOL we don´t really celebrate. We light candles to remember our loved ones (All Saints Day) so for me it´s a glass of wine and my Kindle.
    Thanks for the giveaway & Happy Halloween!
