Seducing Mr. Right by Katee Robert

Tempted by His Best Friend by Cari Quinn
Kindergarten teachers aren’t known for breaking the rules, but Steph is ready to go undercover—and get under the covers—to work her magic on her best friend, Landon. Sexy costume necessary, multiple orgasms crucial, real identity optional.
Wicked Games by Samanthe Beck
When Stacy discovers her sex-on-a-stick ex at her Hollywood Halloween blow-out, she decides to show the cocky homicide detective exactly what he’s been missing. But she’s not the only one plotting revenge, and Ian’s the only one who can save her.
Protecting What’s Theirs by Tessa Bailey
Lieutenant Derek Tyler and Ginger Peet have overcome every seemingly impossible hurdle on the path to happiness, but when they each receive life-changing news on the same day, will their hard-won trust stand up to the test? Or will their attempts to shield one another drive them apart?
Ever since I was a kid, Halloween was my favorite holiday (closely followed by Thanksgiving because…FOOD). Seriously, what’s not to love? There’s candy, and you get to dress up like whatever the hell you want. Did I mention the candy?In recent years, I’ve actually started to appreciate the whole getting-scared-out-of-your-mind aspect, too. It was definitely lost on me as a kid, since I was scared of EVERYTHING (God, don’t even get me started on The Chucky Incident). So it’s been kind of fun to discover all those horror movies people swear by.
Also, haunted houses. I was coerced into my first one last year and, being me, I did nothing halfway. In this case, that meant Scarywood, which is what happens when a local theme park takes on a whole Halloween theme and turns basically pee-your-pants scary.
Totally great idea, right?
Depends on who you ask.
I was dating a poor unfortunate soul at the time, and he was all for this plan. And it was great… Except I’m a flailer. Flailer + things that jump out at you = bad things.
Maybe you see where this is going?
Different parts of the park had been formed into haunted houses and it was in the second one we made it through that things went sideways. Personally, I blame the meat bags. They were these heavy bags hanging from the ceiling and, to get past them, you had to actually push them aside. No problem, right? Until your fingers slid along the slick surface and you realized they were clammy and wet. It might not sound so terrible, but in near-perfect darkness and the paranoid state you get knowing that some mutant hillbilly is about to leapt at you… Well, I was a hot mess.
But, YAY, the end was near! I saw the light at the end of the tunnel (literally in this case) and hustle forward on my super cute boots that were not meant for fleeing for your life (lesson: learned).
And then the dude with the chainsaw jumped out (I know, y’all saw that coming, right?).
So, of course, I scream and bolt, leaving my date to die a terrible death. The path winds around up this little hill, where it merges with the rest of the park, and I was hell-bent on getting up there.
Except then a SECOND dude with a chainsaw jumps out.
I think, at this point, y’all can appreciate how out of my mind with terror I was. So I’m shaking and doing a really close impression of jazz hands while I flee…
Then hands come down on my shoulders.
So, of course, those jazz hands morph into flying fists of fury. I flipped around, struck with the heel of my hand like I actually knew something about physical confrontation… And hit my date in the face.
It didn’t help that I was so freaked out and startled, that I just started laughing. And couldn’t stop. We wandered around the park for twenty minutes, trying to find napkins, because he was bleeding from the mouth. All the while, I couldn’t stop laughing. Mostly because I’m a terrible person.
So that’s my first experience with a haunted house. What about you? Do you love them? Hate them? Get scared and assault your date in them?

About the Author:
New York Times and USA Today bestselling author, Katee Robert, learned to tell stories at her grandpa’s knee. Her favorites then were the rather epic adventures of The Three Bears, but at age twelve she discovered romance novels and never looked back.
Though she dabbled in writing, life got in the way—as it often does—and she spent a few years traveling, living in both Philadelphia and Germany. In between traveling and raising her two wee ones, she had the crazy idea that she’d like to write a book and try to get published.
Her first novel was an epic fantasy that, God willing, will never see the light of day. From there, she dabbled in YA and horror, before finally finding speculative romance. Because, really, who wouldn’t want to write entire books about the smoking-hot relationships between two people?
She now spends her time—when not lost in Far Reach worlds—playing imaginary games with her wee ones, writing, ogling men, and planning for the inevitable zombie apocalypse.
