Lessons I Learned from Horror Movies

1. Don’t be stupid. Seriously, don’t go in the basement. Have you seen that new Geico commercial? It’s priceless, especially when the chainsaw murderer takes off his mask and rolls his eyes. In other words, take the easiest way out of stupid. And don’t go in the attic, either. 2. Don’t scream. The bad guys always find you when you scream. Bite your lip and soldier on, preferably quietly. Don’t whine, either.   3. Always keep your car in good condition. Trust me, you need a getaway vehicle.   4. Don’t volunteer for any overnights at spooky old houses. Especially with a bunch of people you don’t know. Especially around Halloween.   5. For heaven’s sake, keep your libido zipped unless there’s a really good lock on the door. The last thing you want is to have your pants down – in a manner of speaking – when you have...

Sinful Rewards – Haunted Chicago

Sinful Rewards is set in Chicago which makes this Halloween even more exciting for me. Chicago, with its deadly history (The Great Fire, Al Capone), is one of the most haunted cities in America. The Congress Plaza Hotel is a must-visit for ghost hunters. It was built to host visitors during Chicago’s World Fair and was a hangout for Al Capone and other gangsters. Some of the ghosts include a little boy in the north tower. His mother threw him off the roof before she took her own life. There’s a female ghost in the banquet room. She whispers in the ear of any visitor who enters the space alone. The most haunted room in the hotel is 441. A shadowy outline of a woman frequently appears there. Another must-see is the Inez Clark Statue in Graceland Cemetery. Inez was a 6 year old girl who was struck by lightning...

Then she’s kidnapped by Connor “Mad” Rogan—a darkly tempting billionaire with equally devastating powers. Torn between wanting to run or surrender to their overwhelming attraction, Nevada must join forces with Rogan to stay alive. Rogan’s after the same target, so he needs Nevada. But she’s getting under his skin, making him care about someone other than himself for a change. And, as Rogan has learned, love can be as perilous as death, especially in the magic world...

TBT: Tempted by the Night

Thought I’d go with my paranormal, haunted, ghoulish, monster/Jane Austen story, Tempted by the Night, for Halloween Eve. So many people have asked why I decided to write historicals with paranormal elements, and I have to admit that I never set out deliberately to do it, rather the story/series idea would not go away and haunted me until I wrote them. So after writing the first one, His Mistress by Morning, I knew I would never escape without writing Hermione’s story (well, make that Rockhurst’s). I got so many emails about him, pleading for his story, something that didn’t surprise me in the least. I sort of suspected that might happen when I was writing Mistress. Sometimes a character steps off the page and takes a place in your heart. Like I said last week, Temple, from my Danver’s series, was another such character. The very moment Rockhurst came striding...
