A Blissfully Spooky Halloween with Cindi Madsen

Cindi Madsen is a USA Today bestselling author of contemporary romance and young adult novels. She sits at her computer every chance she gets, plotting, revising, and falling in love with her characters. Sometimes it makes her a crazy person. Without it, she’d be even crazier. She has way too many shoes, but can always find a reason to buy a pretty new pair, especially if they’re sparkly, colorful, or super tall. She loves music and dancing and wishes summer lasted all year long. She lives in Colorado (where summer is most definitely NOT all year long) with her husband and three children.

Of course we always dress up for Halloween! We carve pumpkins and put them out on the step and then we go trick-or-treating. Afterward, my husband and I usually let the kids loose with their candy upstairs while we watch a scary movie downstairs.

One of my favorite Halloweens was the year I dressed up as Buffy and somehow convinced my hubby to be Angel. He agreed as long as he didn’t have to do much, thus the fake teeth. I’ve always been a Buffy fan, and I like to think I can wield a mean wooden stake. Even more fun, for critique group around Halloween, my writing partners and I dressed up. One of my friends writes adult vampire novels, so of course she was a vampire, and I was the slayer. Then we had a Guinevere in the mix. I still kick myself for not getting a pic of all of us together dressed like that. But I do have a couple of me and my husband in our outfits. Both Buffy and Angel, and then that moment Angelus comes out and I—Buffy—had to put the beat down.

Danielle and Wes have been best friends since college, so when Wes needs a date for his sister’s wedding and Dani needs a partner for her company’s retreat, they devise the perfect plan: a fake engagement to get through both events unscathed. Adrenaline-junkie Wes can prove to both his ex and his family that he’s well and truly moved on, and serious-minded Dani can prove to her boss that she’s worthy of the promotion he seems to only want to give to a family-oriented employee.

But amid the fake swoons, fake kisses, and forced proximity, neither expects the very real feelings that develop. There’s nothing more dangerous than falling for your best friend…but what if the landing is worth the fall?
