Fright Month 2!

My next featured book is one of my favorites. Dark Needs At Night's Edge by Kresley Cole is book four in her Immortals After Dark series. This book epitomizes everything about Halloween. The hero is a vampire and the heroine is a ghost. Here's what the dust jacket has to say about the story:

A Raven-Haired Temptress Of The Dark: Neomi Laress, a famous ballerina from a past century, became a phantom the night she was murdered. Imbued with otherworldly powers but invisible to the living, she haunts her beloved home, scaring away trespassers-until she encounters a ruthless immortal even more terrifying than Neomi herself.

A Vampire Warrior Consumed By Madness: To prevent him from harming others, Conrad Wroth's brothers imprison him in an abandoned manor. But there, a female only he can see seems determined to drive him further into madness. The exquisite creature torments him with desire, leaving his body racked with lust and his soul torn as he finds himself coveting her for his own.

How Far Will He Go To Claim Her? Yet even if Conrad can win Neomi, evil still surrounds her. Once he returns to the brutality of his past to protect her, will he succumb to the dark needs seething inside him?

I love all five books thus far in this series but this one, Dark Needs At Night's Edge is my favorite. I love Conrad and Neomi is fantastic. Years of boredom at not being seen have caused Neomi to develop a few bad habits. She likes to pickpocket from unsuspecting mortals. And Conrad's insanity caused by drinking blood until he kills has left him with a cruel streak. He often takes his rage out on Neomi.

But when Neomi's ghostly life is threatened with complete and total destruction, Conrad's fierce and cruel tendencies are the only things that may save her. Dark Needs At Night's Edge by Kresley Cole is currently out and available. Click on the link I have up for her if you'd like to check out any of her books.

Tomorrow my Mom, Lin, author of Lin's Blog, will be here guest blogging about Halloween so make sure you come back for that. I will have the next Fright Month installment for you on Monday. Until then, Happy Haunting!

Talk about pressure...now I have to decide what to write about. Should I write about the possessed gum drop that is masquerading as the Cadillac of enchanted brooms during the Witch's pre-Halloween Come-one-come-all Sale?

Or perhaps Derbert the slightly forgettful ghost...you know the one who forgets he supposed to be haunting the creepy mansion NOT the candy store?(Derbert has...had...this sweet tooth before he became corporeally challenged and he can't wrap his sheet around the fact that candy is not as tasty for ghosts.

How about Salvaterino the wannabe Don of all the ghouls? Of course he might actually be taken a teeny bit more serious if he didn't sound like he's been sucking on helium for the last ten years.

Scarecrow? That was done by the Wizard of Oz, who as we all know turned out to not be much of a wizard after all.

Maybe THAT'S what I should write about...The Wizard who was meant to really to rule the Emerald City. Would he be an ally or an enemy of the WW of the East? An enemy...especially if our Wizard had this thing for Ruby Red Slippers. Nah...that bornders more on Never Never Land.

Ok...how about a gnome...no, not one of those incessantly snootish garden gnomes...this one a dark, covered in muck, creature rising from a pit of sludge tossing oil bombs at the beasties dressed up as politicians? Has definite possibilities.

There's always that stand-in, Good Old Drac...but I have it on expert testimony...(Renfrew)...that Drac had to have both fangs root canaled...God only knows where that poor dentist finally came to when he reached the end of the canal...but Drac is not talking...I mean he REALLY is not talking. I've never seen his face swell up that much. (You don't think it's possible the dentist might still be crawling around...NAH...surely not...and yet...his upper face sure does move and gyrate a lot!)

Well, I guess I'll have to keep it a secret...(which considering it's a secret yet from me...oh where oh where has my muse gone?...shouldn't be too hard...for now.(Any one out there got a muse caller...you know like a moose caller only for lazy muses?)

Till tomorrow then...this is Evil Lin plotting and planning horrible things, saying take care when you sleep tonight. You never know what dark things are hidden in the dark!
