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 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!

Fabulous Fall Reads - October

There are so many good books out there, my TBR stacks are tottering.  In the interest of making sure yours are too, here's a list of the books I've been recommending in my Fabulous Fall Reads series on FB & Twitter:

The Boy with the Painful Tattoo

by Josh Lanyon

Josh writes amazing mystery romance and is one of the few authors I buy as soon as the book is available, no matter what kind of deadlines or family commitments I've got going on.

The Dating Dilemma

by Laurie LeClair
Debut book in her new romantic comedy series.

I met Laurie for the first time at RWA National in San Antonio this year.  She's an absolute sweetheart who puts her readers first.  (She and her husband spent a lot of time getting books to give away to readers that they could have been doing other stuff.  I was impressed!) And she writes amazing comedy romance!

The True King of Dahaar
by Tara Pammi
Harlequin Presents
November 2014

Tara is a newer author for Harlequin Presents with her own unique point of view and author voice.  I'm very excited she's joined our series and hope you'll give her books a try.

A bonus recommendation from another new Harlequin Presents / M&B Modern / Mills & Boon Sexy author with her debut book.  Aren't both these covers absolutely delicious?!!

by Rachael Thomas
Harlequin Presents
October 2014

Any author's debut book is exciting, but I have a soft spot for Presents authors since Harlequin/Mills&Boon was the first publisher to buy my own books.  I've been able to write some of my most memorable stories for Presents as well.

Charade (Impetuous & Outrageous)
2-in-1 Reissue (Print & eBook)
by Lori Foster

Lori Foster has been on my auto-buy list for 15 years. Her books touch our hearts while entertaining us at the same time.  Impetuous and Outrageous are two two of her stories I've re-read many, many times.

If you didn't get your copy the first time around, this is one 2-in-1 you don't want to pass up!

My final Fabulous Fall Reads for October are a couple of those fantastic deals I can't help sharing, especially since my friend and award winning author Rachel Grant is part of this mult-author anthology/bundle.

Twelve Shades of Midnight by Liliana Hart, Dakota Cassidy, Rachel Grant, et. al.

The stroke of midnight ushers in many things. From hijinks and mischief to danger and evil, romance is the magic that binds these paranormal novellas together. Join 12 bestselling and award winning authors as they explore the different shades of midnight in exclusive, never-before-released stories.

Autumn's Kiss by 10 authors including Kristy Tate, Debby Lee, et. al.

Ten sweet stories of love. Ten great authors. Ten ways to celebrate Autumn.
Falling in love is timeless. From a sexy medieval stonemason to a small town shopkeeper - Regency England to Napa Vineyards, this selection of Historical, Contemporary, Paranormal and Time-Travel short romance stories is sure to capture your heart.

Enjoy and happy reading!

Throwback Thursday - Dragon's Moon

by Lucy Monroe
ISBN-10: 0425246620
ISBN-13: 978-0425246627
Children of the Moon Novel #4 
Berkley Sensation - September 2012

When Eirik, the only living dragon shifter, and prince of the Ean, killed her brother, Ciara was left alone to face her prophetic dreams. Now, in order to find the wolves’ sacred stone and save all the Chrechte from destruction, she needs her enemy’s help.

Eirik was only protecting the children of his people, but that day in the forest left a mark on him as well.
Controlling his dragon’s fire is the most difficult thing he’s ever done—until he and Ciara are forced to face not only their shared tumultuous past, but a hallowed bond stronger than they realize. As avowed enemies and predestined mates, their quest ushers them into a world of great danger, and a passion hotter than the dragon’s fire.

Bestselling author Lucy Monroe returns to her hugely popular paranormal world where a woman falls under the spell of the beast who is her one true enemy... 

Barr never asked to be made laird over the struggling Donegal clan, or leader of its werewolf pack. But he'll do his duty and although he hasn’t yet found his mate, he hopes she will be among his people. He expects his new role to be difficult; he doesn't expect to discover a naked woman in the forest whose memory is as fragile as her human body—her delectable, all too appealing body. Could this woman be his true mate?                                                                                                             On a mission to save her people from extinction, Sabrine pretends she has no memory in order to gain access to her enemy: the Donegal clan. A raven shifter, she is determined to retrieve the sacred stone that rightfully belongs to her people. But soon she’ll be engulfed in her burning desire and growing love for Barr—and the dangerous and inescapable secrets destined to keep them apart...
