This week is another hook from my Halloween romance suspense Knock Knock
New to Kanna, Florida, Lila Maxwell attends All Treats, a Halloween speed dating event in the hopes of meeting Prince Charming but instead one Halloween ghoul after another appears at her door until Cowboy Bill.
Jax Carlson has spent the last year focusing all of his attention on starting his own business. Hiring Lila Maxell over the Internet as his project manager was the completing task. Set to open for business in three days, Jax plans on spending a couple of days on his boat relaxing. However, his friend Erik has a different idea – a speed dating Halloween party.
Jax has spent the night plotting the best revenge possible for Erik until Sally opens the door. The woman dressed in the pale lavender Harem costume ignites a fire that Jax thought was impossible without the aid of his formulated dating list.
After a night of mind blowing sex, Lila sneaks out before they exchange real names believing it was no more than a one-night stand.
When Lila reports to work she learns Cowboy Bill is actually Jax Carlson. She thinks keeping her hormones in check while convincing Jax that love doesn’t follow a formula is complication enough until she learns the participants of the All Treats speed dating event are being killed.
“A lover’s moon,” a woman’s voice came from Lia’s left.
Lila looked over at the woman dressed up like Snow White. Her black wig hung a little askew and her lips appeared swollen.
“Local legend says lovers would arrange to meet in the glades using the light of the moon to find their way. If he got lost on his way, then the love wasn’t real because the beams only light the path for those with the truest hearts.” Snow White lifted a bottle of pre-mixed strawberry daiquiri. “A night of true love.” She toasted the air.
“What about those who just stumble along the sidewalk and find your door?” Lila asked trying to convince herself that the woman had to have had a better selection of date applications than she.
