#MFRWhooks- What’s lurking this Halloween??

Happy Wednesday and thanks for stopping by! I hope you are enjoying this weeks logo book hooks

This week, I’m doing a cover reveal as well as the hook…I’m sooooo excited about the cover…I love it!!! A story is a like an author’s child and the cover is the really cute outfit you dress them in. In my case it’s the slightly sexy and dark outfit.

I’ll stop rambling…

Here’s a sneak before the hook…

BLURB –

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 NOW….the cover

It’s it great???? Michelle at WLF Book Promotions did it.
AND the hook….

Walking into her bedroom, Lila froze mid-stride. On her bed was a knife coated with blood and small plastic number five. The glass slipped from her hand and fell to the floor, spraying her foot and leg with red wine.

 

It will be available for pre-order September 26th and live on October 16.

Would you enter??? My scariest Halloween story takes place in a 'haunted' house

Would you enter??? My scariest Halloween story takes place in a ‘haunted’ house

When I was a teen, I went to a haunted house in a nearby town with some friends from my vocational class. On the way there, the guys kept telling Mary, the other girl with us, and me stories of how women had been abducted from the house – never to be seen again. So to be safe, we should stick real close to them (remember we are dealing fifteen/sixteen/seventeen year old hormones and thought patterns here). Mary and I shrugged the stories off and went into the haunted house by ourselves.

 The first room we enter is the ‘sinking floor’ room. They had a sand and foam mixture on the floor so with each step you felt like you sinking. During my teens years I wore clogs (besides boots they are my second go-to shoe to this day), and one of them ‘sank.’ I’m bent over trying to retrieve my shoe from the ‘sinking floor’ when I feel hands on my waist. Thinking it’s one of the guys I’m with, I reach back to shove his face away…it’s a hairy demon mask.

 A deep voice, that I don’t recognize, growls, “What’s your problem?”

 Instantly all the words the guys had said flood my brain. I scream (remember I’m 15 here) and try to break away. For some reason the worker holds on to me. A man with his two young children enter the ‘sinking floor’ room, I grab a hold of the stranger’s shirt and beg him to help me – crying. Not to let the demon man kidnap me – taking me to the depths of Hell.

The man ushered his kids through who were scared shitless. He turned to me and said you’re a great actress. I screamed pleading for his help again. He nodded and smiled. Now the demon man is laughing and one of the guys I was with returns. Demon man let me go and I leapt into the guys arms. The workers continued to torment me through the rest of the house

I went home missing a shoe, the guys picked on n me, Mary picked on me, and to this day it was the scariest haunted I’ve ever been to. Now people have told me that demon man probably thought I was trying to destroy the ‘sinking floor’ not realizing I had lost a clog and the workers had no idea what the guys I was with had told me and I silly teen girl that screamed at EVERYTHING.

So that was the Halloween I was the scared the most. I have a Halloween suspense romance novella ~ Knock Knock. And who doesn’t love a pirate especially on Halloween – Treasure Hunt.
