Creeptaculous Halloween Recommends
As it is getting along in the year and we near that time when all things spooky seem almost plausible with those nights when the darkness comes earlier, when there’s a little nip to the air, when dry leaves rustle and unaccountable shivers run up and down your spine (oh wait, it’s the cat walking all over you in the night because you left his bowl empty), we turn our thoughts to books that embrace this fall ambience and give the right amount of chill to our hot romances.
First off, I’d like to recommend one that I’ve reviewed on the blog before.
The Gravedigger’s Brawl by Abigail Roux
This M/M Paranormal Romance tells the story of a museum curator and a flair bartender who find it a bit difficult to romance each other when strange things start to go down in this atmospheric thriller involving an old tavern and things that do more than go bump in the night.
Second up and another that has already been reviewed at the blog, I offer something a bit less fear-factorish on the heart rate- okay scratch that, your pulse will still pound, but not from the danger as much from the smoking hot warlock.
The Cat’s Meow by Stacey Kennedy
This opening read to her urban fantasy Witch’s Brew series brings a mistrustful, young and talented witch together with a mysterious new warlock partner to solve a series of magic-related murders. Find out more in my review.
I have to put in the word for one that has my interest because it contains a short story in the delicious Delilah S. Dawson’s paranormal steampunk romance Blud series along with several super cool other authors. And the recommend is for the short story anthology Carniepunk by Rob Thurman and others because- hey, look at the cover! Its creepy. ‘Nuf said!
And last, but certainly not least, I’m going to go out on a limb (not really since I’m vested in the series) and recommend Bec McMaster’s My Lady Quicksilver the third book in her paranormal London Steampunk series since a lot of the action takes place in those dark shadowy London streets and the even darker world beneath the streets. Watch for my future review on this one.
Until next time, keep looking over your shoulder for more good reading recommendations!
