Weekend Writing Warriors ~ 10/15/17 Hearts at All Hallows’ Eve~ Disappointment


I’m sharing from my brand new short story I’ve just finished writing for Halloween called Hearts at All Hallows’ Eve. It’s set in the world of my Handful of Hearts series and it will be FREE to those who sign up for my newsletter in October! Just click here. 🙂

The cover’s almost ready–release will be Monday or Tuesday, so please look for it!

Miss Cecilia Powell is attending her first masquerade on All Hallows’ Eve when she sees something just a little strange. A hooded figure in black begins to stalk toward her.

Relentlessly, he continued toward her, creating new flutterings within. Excitement rather than terror she was sure. Did she know the gentleman? His dress gave her no clues, of course. Perhaps his voice would give him away, as had the others, like Lady Haversham’s, when she’d heard her speak tonight.

His graceful, light carriage as he strode onward, sent more anticipation buzzing through her. Cecilia could not stop staring as he halted in front of her and made a deep bow.

“Goddess Astraea, I come to make obeisance to your loveliness. Fair one, I am rendered weak at the beauty and grace that stands before me,” he said, and the rich, deep baritone of his voice fell oh, so pleasurably on her ear.

Disappointment tugged at her, however, when his speech didn’t arouse any recognition.

BLURB for Hearts at All Hallows’ Eve:

When Miss Cecilia Powell attends her very first masquerade on All Hallows’ Eve, she’s thrilled when a mysterious  reveler pays court to her. As their encounter continues, Cecilia is charmed, then smitten with this masked stranger, even though she senses something odd about him. Is he truly the man of her dreams, or will Cecilia find her dream a true  nightmare?
