Since Halloween is just days away I thought I’d share a picture of me and my daughter on her first Halloween. She was a little mummy for her mummy! LOL. My daughter was just three months old in this photo.
With Halloween on its way, I was looking for someone dark and brooding for today’s Man Candy Monday. Someone who could maybe play a vampire or other tortured hero. I looked no further than sexy Irish actor Aidan Turner.
Aidan is best known for his role as as Kili in the Hobbit movies. He’s also in the supernatural TV series, Being Human. In 2015, Aidan was cast as the main character in the Poldark BBC series.
Sexy, isn’t he?
Happy Happy Halloween! I just love today and seeing all the kids (and adults) get dressed up and have some fun! Today I’ve got some pictures for you from some of our past Halloweens as well as my Pinterest board for Halloween. That’s where I store up ideas for all kinds of Halloween treats and things.
The very first photo is of me and my daughter on her very first Halloween. She was just over two months old and wearing an “I love Mummy” outfit! LOL!
I hope you have a fabulous day and an awesome weekend!
I love Halloween and it’s not just the paranormal romance author in me that loves it. It’s the kid who couldn’t wait to dig through the family closets to try and put together an outfit to go out and get some tricks or treats. I loved the fantasy of it, of pretending to be something that I wasn’t.
I love decorating for Halloween and greeting the kids at the door, usually with something costumey on. One of my fondest memories is of answering the door with a wolf paw on one hand and a fake bloodied bandage on the other. An adorable little princess was on the other side and she looked at me wide-eyed and said, “I think you need to go to the doctor.” LOL!
Today’s Throwback Thursday is a shot of my house with the Halloween decorations. We had a lot of kids that year, including that little princess, I think. I’m hoping we’ll have more kids this year. Last year was kind of a disappointment.
So sorry to have missed you yesterday, but my quiet weekend turned into one without power and with hours of work clearing the assorted branches and tree limbs brought down by an unseasonably early snowfall. Luckily we had little damage, although the Halloween decorations took a major hit. Tree limb came right down and ripped off the scarecrow’s head, smashed the creepy fence and tombstones. Now that the holiday is over, we’ll see what we can salvage.
I didn’t want you to miss our Guilty Pleasures Monday, so here is a belated edition with a little man candy that inspired the hero in Amazon Awakening.
The sexy hero in this erotic paranormal romance novella (yes, you read that – erotic) is Rey Peralta and here’s a little teaser about this December release:
Rey Peralta has been sent to persuade Paola Lopes to return to Brazil and take up her place as Priestess of the Guardians, protectors of the sacred realm hidden deep in the Amazon rainforest. He knows Paola is the one they need to ensure their survival—but he doesn’ t expect the instant blast of desire that sparks between them. Her beauty and power call to him, enticing him to merge with her physically and spiritually; a desire that only increases when they give in to their passion and make love. Can he convince Paola to accept her destiny and stay with her people—and by his side?

I’m like a kid when it comes to Halloween. I love the costumes and decorating the house! I love seeing the smiles and sometimes scary looks from the kids as they walk up the front steps.
I guess it’s natural since I love paranormal things, but it’s confession time: I am a major chicken. Have been since my mom and sis forced me to watch all those monster movies as a kid. It’s why I sleep with the sheets tucked up to cover my neck (vampires) and hate walking at night, especially during a full moon.
But despite all that, I LOVE Halloween. So I decorate the outside of the house so kids will hopefully have some fun on that day. Just beware the front door! This year we’ve found a cool mat that does all kinds of things when you step on it.
