Welcome friends! We had so much fun dressing up our favorite book characters last year we decided to do it again! We hope you'll join us and some truly wicked characters and authors throughout the week as we party through caves, frat houses, discuss favorite candies, sexy costumes and more! To kick things off we'd like to welcome author Suzanne Wright as well as the All Hallows Eve Indies Blog Tour! Be sure to check out the tour for more spooktacular paranormal indie authors this month!
As Trey took in the sight around him, he wondered what it would be like to have a mate who actually listened to a word he said. His home had looked totally normal when he left it three hours ago. Now the caves looked like a spooky crypt, the Ghostbusters theme song was blasting from the speakers in the living area, and everyone was dressed up in weird costumes. He turned to the nearest person to him, who happened to be his Beta female. She was so busy dancing, she hadn’t even noticed him. “What was it about ‘no party’ that you found so hard to understand? And why does my son look like a banana that’s dressed up in overalls?”
Still dancing, Jaime cuddled the giggling four month old against her chest. “He’s a minion. You know, from Despicable Me?”
Trey didn’t need to ask who the mastermind behind all this was. He didn’t much like parties, never had. But Taryn, his mate, had made it very clear that she intended to introduce him to the concept of ‘fun’ and insisted in forcing that fun on him.
“Come on, Trey, did you really think we wouldn’t celebrate Kye’s first Halloween in true style?”
Dante appeared at Jaime’s side. Oddly enough, he looked just as unimpressed about all this as Trey was…although that might have been because he was wearing a Thor costume.
“Jaime made you wear it, didn’t she?”
Scowling at his mate, who was dressed in a half-angel-half-devil outfit, Dante replied, “Yup.”
Dante gestured behind him. “She was talking to Marcus a few minutes ago.”
Intending to seek her out, Trey went to take his son.
Jaime snorted and held Kye tighter. “Oh, no. I’m under strict instructions from my Alpha female to keep hold of Kye so that your negativity doesn’t spill over onto him.”
He was gonna spank Taryn’s ass so damn hard. Shrugging past them, Trey headed over to where Marcus was stood with the Grim Reaper, Beetlejuice, and a life-size bottle of Jack Daniels, who turned out to be Ryan, Trick, and Tao. Marcus, who was unbelievably covered from his torso to his knees in a giant pack of King Size Condoms, presented Trey with his usual clown-wide grin that tonight held a hint of smugness. Well, considering he was acting like a dick he was appropriately dressed. “Where is she, Marcus?”
“Um…she’s around here somewhere,” he awkwardly replied, though his grin hadn’t faded. The little witch’s decision to hide was a very wise one.
There was one person who Trey knew wouldn’t cover for her. “Where’s Greta?” His grandmother would no doubt be just as annoyed about this party as he was.
“I think she’s in the kitchen.”
Trey marched through the tunnels into the crowded kitchen and made a beeline for his grandmother, determined to ignore the fact that Dominic was dressed as a snake charmer – complete with a large Cobra rising from a hole in the groin of his trousers. It was only as Trey neared Greta that he realized she was wearing a green skirt-suit, had fake black birds stuck all over her, and was covered in fake cuts…like the woman from The Birds. The damn traitor.
Seeing that he was gaping at her, she shifted uncomfortably. “I’m doing this for Kye.”
Really? Because she looked like she was having a heck of a time with Mary Poppins and Burt – or Lydia and Cam. “Where’s Taryn?”
Greta smirked evilly. Oh she might be prepared to enjoy the party, but that didn’t mean she would do Taryn any favors. She never missed a chance to annoy his mate. “She went to the bedroom to change.”
In less than thirty seconds, he was barging into the bedroom. The sight of Taryn stopped him dead. She was wearing a long Morticia-Addams-like gown that probably shouldn’t have looked sexy as shit but so did. But he’d ignore that. Clearing his throat, he glared into eyes that contained no trace of guilt. “Is there a reason why you completely ignored me?”
She regarded him with mock pity. “Is there a reason why you expected me not to?” She only rolled her eyes when he growled. “Come on, Trey, it’s just a party.”
He advanced on her. “It’s not just a party, there are props and decorations and fake spider webs everywhere! This place looks like a tomb!”
“Then it’s a good thing there’s a tomb raider around.” And then she dropped the gown she was hearing.
He froze, mesmerized by the image of her in that Lara Croft outfit. “Holy shit.”
She raked a nail down his chest. “Here’s the deal. If you agree to try to have fun, I’ll leave this on and we’ll have your type of fun with it later. If not…well, I guess I’ll just have to change.”
“Let’s party.” He knew he was being played, but while she was dressed like that he didn’t care.
She smiled brightly and kissed him. “I knew you’d see reason. Now, time for you to change. I have the perfect costume.” She gestured at the bed. Oh she had to be kidding.
“No! No! No! I am not dressing like Fred Flintstone!”
