Thanks, Dani, for having me back at Ramblings From This Chick. It’s my favorite place on the web, barring the Pump Underwear site, ‘cuz…you know…hot guys in underwear….

But I digress. What I really need to focus on is the calendar. Happy Halloween people!!

When I was a kid, I loved trick-or-treating. Now that I’m grown-up and on the other side of the trick-or-treat dynamic, I know how important it is to have a good book loaded on the e-reader, my own, personal candy bowl in easy reach, and a strong cocktail in my glass. They help me pass the time while passing out candy.

This Halloween I’m performing a public service to all the other lovers of cocktails, candy, and sexy reads, who will be dedicated to the doorbell tonight. I’m serving up some hot Halloween-themed reads designed to put the “holla” in Hollaween…er…something like that. ;)

Dirty Trick (A Perfectly Matched Novel) by Christine Bell:

Grace Love is lousy with men. She can spot a match for someone else a mile away, and her balls-on instincts are why her matchmaking business is thriving, but finding her own Prince Charming? The only guy who makes her sixth sense tingle is her playboy best friend, Trick, and no way is she risking their friendship, no matter how hot she knows the sex will be.

SWAT officer Trick Mathews is a patient guy, but Grace’s inability to see what’s right in front of her is grinding on his last nerve. Yeah, he blew his shot at breaking out of the friend zone when he tamped down the urge to lick her from head to toe the day they met, but he’s got a plan that’ll change her mind. Incognito at Salem's hottest Halloween party, he’ll show her exactly how good they could be…and that he’s the man for her.

Recommended cocktail & candy combo: The Candy Corn Cordial (tequila + butterscotch, chocolate, orange), and candy corn. It’s a fun, naughty twist on a Halloween classic…just like this book.

Protecting What's Theirs (A Line of Duty Novel)* by Tessa Bailey:

Possession is nine-tenths of the law. And she belongs to him.

Ginger Peet has never regretted leaving Nashville with her sister and their life-sized statue of Dolly Parton. Now she’s settled in Chicago with Lieutenant Derek Tyler, spending her nights pressed against every inch of his hard, dominating, and panty-meltingly-hot body.

And there’s nowhere Derek would rather be than reminding Ginger—thoroughly and exquisitely—that she belongs to him. But then trouble hits the streets of Chicago. The kind of bust the old-school boys call a "widow-maker." To keep Ginger safe, Derek’s forced to shut her out and keep himself away from her luscious body, or risk losing her forever.

But Ginger has just been presented with some, er, unexpected news. And right now, it’s best she keeps that news to herself. Because Derek stands to lose far more than he knows, until he takes the law—and Ginger—into his own hands one last time...

Recommended cocktail and candy combo: An El Diablo, (tequila, sweet creme de cassis, and ginger beer…’cause our heroine is Ginger!), and red hots, (because this IS Tessa Bailey, after all)!

Seducing Mr. Right (A Come Undone Novella)*by Katee Robert:

He’s not who she thinks, and he has seduction plans of his own…Danielle Kastien is done with powerful men. After months of near-saintly behavior, she’s determined to use the company costume party to have her wicked way with every delicious inch of the sexy-but-sweet mail guy she’s been meeting for coffee. Though her costume is designed to send him into a haze of blind lust, Danielle quickly realizes Grayson is not the kind of man she can control.

Grayson Harper is used to having his way at work and in the bedroom. He’s dominant. Commanding. Obeyed. He’s been patiently biding his time with Danielle, enjoying spending time with someone who sees him as someone other than the CEO of Harper Industries. But before he can confess, he has Danielle right where he wants her. Where he’s wanted her since the day they met. And he’s in far too deep to risk his claim on the one woman who makes him hard with need...

Recommended cocktail and candy combo: A Bloody Good Time, (tequila, amaretto, blood orange, ginger, sweet and sour, & soda), and fun-size Hershey’s assorted chocolate bars, because this story is a hot, entertaining read packed into fun, novella size!

And the shameless self-promo...Wicked Games (A McCade Brothers Novella)* by Samanthe Beck:

When a battle of wills becomes a game of lust, one wrong move could be fatal.

Actress Stacy Roberts is ready to ride her rising star straight to Hollywood's A-list. All she needs is the famous Hollywood Hedonism party (check), one very naughty angel costume (check), and a few drinks to get her sexy swagger back (check, check). Tonight, she is not aching for her hot, hard-bodied ex. Or worrying about the threatening letters signed by "Your Worst Nightmare."

For Detective Ian Ford, "nightmare" doesn't begin to cover it. Whatever demons prompted Stacy to cut and run have him tied up in knots. Worse, his ex is dressed to kill any man with a pulse, and Ian is seeing red. If Stacy wants trouble, she'll find it. Only Ian's going to make damned sure that the only trouble she gets is with him. There are no rules. They either both win, or they both lose. But this time, there's an extra player--one who's determined to make sure this is the very last game Stacy plays...

Recommended cocktail and candy combo: Midnight Martini, (vodka and coffee liqueur), and Twix, because the martini makes you crazy and Twix candy is in a delicious war with itself, just like Stacy & Ian!

He’ll show this good girl the thrill of being bad…

Good girl Melody Merritt is ready to be bad. Fresh out of an unsatisfying ten-year engagement to the town golden boy, she’s determined to make up for lost time. And who better to burn her sterling reputation to the ground than Bluelick’s sinfully sexy new fire chief whose wicked gaze promises complete and utter domination? Yes, please.

Corrupting the prim and proper Little Miss Bluelick is the most action Josh Bradley’s seen since he transferred from Cincinnati to fast-track his career. He won’t let anything or anyone—not even the delectable Melody Merritt—trap him in this Kentucky-fried Mayberry, but when their searing chemistry yields an unexpected result, he realizes he’s started a blaze that's completely beyond his control…
