Small town life can be quirky, magical ...

With a full moon hanging over the apple orchards of Delicious, Ohio,
romance is in the air, and three couples are about to experience the
magic of falling in love.


Down on Jonathan Avenue, the shy proprietor of the quaint bookstore can’t seem to keep her fantasies about a famous writer to herself. While at The Old Orchard Inn the tempting smell of spiced hot cider lures an out-of-town investor to investigate the magnetic attraction of his sultry but strangely old-fashioned manager. And over at Apple of My Pie a play-by-the-rules accountant wants much more than tasty treats from the pop up food truck’s on-again-off-again baker.


LUCY MONROE
Moon Magnetism

Ivy Kendall dreads the full moon. For generations, women in her family have been extremely magnetic on that day—which was fine fifty years ago but not in the age of hard drives and cell phones. That’s why the hotel manager has resisted the technological improvements her boss wants her to implement. Now, the sexy, dynamic Blake Hawthorne is coming to insist on the upgrades in person. Shoot, he’ll probably fire her. Being around Blake makes her body go as haywire as a full moon, maybe even more. And as long as she’s going to be out of a job soon, there’s no reason not to use a little of that magnetism to her advantage, luring him into an elevator where the only electricity that will work is the kind they generate themselves... Read an exerpt

LORI FOSTER
Once in a Blue Moon

It’s all because of that stupid blue moon. That’s what Stan Tucker thinks as he walks through Delicious, Ohio, suddenly privy to everyone’s innermost thoughts, a gift courtesy of a rare blue moon. What most people have on their minds is boring—grocery lists, work woes, appointments. But not Jenna Rowan’s super-private thoughts. The pretty, shy bookstore owner is having decidedly hot thoughts about Stan...naked, sweaty, not-for-primetime thoughts. Stan’s lusted after Jenna for ages, but he never thought the proper lady was interested. Now that he knows, he intends to do something about it, and this time, he won’t be the only one howling at the moon...

SARAH TITLE
Apple of My Pie

Mona runs a pop-up bakery in Delicious, Ohio. Dan has a small accounting office in town, with a nice view of the town square — where Mona parks her mobile bakery every month or so. Dan is a hardworking guy who has built his business up from nothing, and he can’t stand the way Mona flits in and out of business whenever the mood strikes her. Still, he can’t deny her popularity, or her clever business sense. Or her figure under those Full Moon Sweets t-shirts. But Mona’s not just capricious — there’s a reason she can’t run her business full time. Will straight-laced Dan be able to handle the truth? Or is he too sweet to be true?

ruling them. This time, however, he refuses to abandon his sacred mate. He lost Shona once and swears he will never be separated from her again. Passion and love urge Shona to join him. But she has to wonder if she truly comes before the pack, or if nothing has changed at all...

Happy Halloween ... Romance Style!

It's Halloween and for many, that means dressing up ghoulishly and visiting the local haunted maze, or taking the children trick-or-treating.  We love to dress up around the Monroe house and delight in passing out candy to little (and big) kids coming to our door.

But it wouldn't be a holiday fro me without a little romance.  And the truth is: some of us are going to be looking for a quiet night in, or a cozy read between doorbell chimes.

So, let's start with a couple perfect reads for Halloween.  Eyes of the Wolf by Desiree Holt is a sexy, short story you can pick up from Amazon for .99.  Now, that's a deal and it happens to be by an author I enjoy.  What could be better?

If you prefer your romance of the historical variety, then you absolutely don't want to miss Tori Phillips' reissued Halloween Knight available on Harlequin.com for under $5.

A simple rescue becomes a full-blown invasion, with mischief and mayhem and a devious plan to rid the castle of all its vermin at a haunted banquet one Halloween night!

According to the Irish American Mom blog, Halloween is all about romance.  Which you all know makes me very happy indeed.  A holiday is so much more of a holiday when it includes a little (or a lot) of romance!

Move over Valentine’s Day – Halloween is nearly here, and in olden days in Ireland, this was the time of year for predicting romances, just waiting to flourish...
