Are you looking for some spooky, sexy reads to get you in the Halloween mood? Might I suggest a couple of my stories? They’re perfect for reading next to a fire, all curled up as the house settles and footsteps ring out from the empty attic above.
First, there’s my Gothic novella Everlasting.
Genre: Contemporary, Gothic erotic romance
Release: September 2011
When innocent college student Chevon takes an impulsive road trip, she finds herself lost in a thick, unpredictable fog. Out of nowhere, the Everlasting Inn appears. The remote house on the cliffs is a haven, yet it evokes erotic thoughts and a haunting sense of déjà vu. The hazy memories consume Chevon, arousing her and tempting her. She takes a job at the inn and when the sexy new owner shows up, she remembers what she’s been craving. And why…
The Romance Reviews gave it a Top Pick Award and described it as “temptation incarnate.”
Next, there’s my story Ghost Flute, that’s heavily influenced by a Sioux legend. Native American culture is rife with spirits and monsters and mystery. I loved doing research for this story.
Genre: Paranormal erotic romance
Release: June 25, 2010
Serena Little Feather is hoping to reconnect with her heritage when she agrees to house-sit on the Lower Brule Sioux Reservation. She just never realized how close to the past she’d get.
At night, Serena hears a flute playing behind the house. The music is haunting and seductive, rousing intense feelings of lust and need. But music isn’t the only lust-inspiring thing in her life. Her neighbor Chayton is dark and sexy, but she’s been warned against him. She doesn’t know which scares her more—the overwhelming pull of the music or her attraction to the bad boy.
Chayton wants his beautiful neighbor. Their kisses sizzle and their touches burn, but the music she’s hearing worries him. Legend told of a Sioux brave who’d lured many women with his flute playing. He’d seduced them and cast them aside—until he was found dead with a knife in his stone heart. It was said that the brave’s spirit still roamed the countryside, playing his songs and looking for love. Every so often, a pretty girl responded. Chayton fears that this time, the pretty girl is Serena.
RT Book Reviews says, “This eerie ghost story is brimming with steamy sex set in an interesting plot.” Read the interview they did with me about Ghost Flute here.
