Welcome to this week’s Hooks!
I’m all about Halloween… and of course murder…and well doughnuts…and vodka. This is my front yard!
So it was only logical that I would a Halloween book and that book would have some serious creepiness to it.
My newest book – Murder and Treats – is a novella about all those things!
Lila Maxwell is coaxed into attending All Treats, a Halloween speed dating event by her best friend. Instead of the soul mate promised 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 final piece to his prefect plan. 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.
Lila’s first day is full of surprises, the biggest being Cowboy Bill is actually her new boss, 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.
And just a peek…
Jax opened his door. The faint early morning sun casting long shadows across his yard. He shook his head and walked over across the dew soaked grass. He would never understand why kids found it funny to wrap empty milk jugs in a bags cover them with cloths then leave them in people’s yards. Jax’s steps faltered as he got closer.
The mound in an evening gown wasn’t empty milk jugs and bags.
