Weekend Writing Warriors ~ 10/28/18 Hearts at All Hallows’ Eve: Unmasking

 

I’m switching gears yet again this week to my haunted Halloween story, Hearts at All Hallows’ Eve. It’s available now thru October 31. Then it vanishes until next October!

 

At a masquerade ball, Miss Cecilia Powell meets a strange, yet very familiar gentleman. As they are about to unmask, she believes she recognizes him.

(Creative punctuation utilized to conform to WWW rules and snippet may therefore be slightly different from published version.)

“Are you ready to unmask, Astraea?” he asked, his eyes eager.

Smiling so broadly she worried he might take her for a lunatic, Cecilia nodded, dancing on her toes in anticipation, “I am, my lord.”

“So, you do have a hint of who I am.” Dark eyebrows quirked up over the edge of his mask.

“Indeed, I do, for your dancing gave you away.” She giggled again, nervous as the clock began to strike. “I believe I met and danced with your brother at Lady Hamilton’s ball in May; you whirl your partner in just the same breathtaking way he did.” Some of the lightness left her. “I was very distressed when I heard he had—”

“Drowned?”

BLURB:  

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?

 

Hearts at All Hallows’ Eve is available at Amazon for a limited time. On October 31 it will vanish until the next Halloween season.

And don’t forget to check out the rest of the Warriors here. There’s some fantastic snippets to be read.
