I have a secret to share with you. I LOVE fall, Halloween, and magic. Love it! So when Kensington asked me to participate in a Halloween themed novella, they didn't even finish the question, before I was screaming a big ol' hell yes!
So, if you're like me and ready to curl into cozy fall, then you won't want to miss this brand new anthology, THE COTTAGE ON PUMPKIN AND VINE. Let Kate Angell, Sharla Lovelace and myself take you to Moonbright, Maine over Halloween weekend where love, and a hint of magic is in the air.

Mesmerized by You by Jennifer Dawson
Chloe swung in her aunt’s direction. “Aunt Iris, you said you had rooms for us.”
The older lady cleared her throat. “I said I had A room.”
Chloe’s brow creased, as though concentrating, before she sighed. “You did.” She turned toward him. “Do you mind?”
He was exhausted and all he wanted was to kick his feet up and relax, maybe shut his eyes for five minutes.
He shrugged one shoulder. “Not a big deal.”
So they had to share a room. Yes, being able to lie around in his boxer-briefs would have been nice, but such was life. Chloe was an easy person to be around and they’d probably be together every second anyway, unless they were sleeping.
Besides, they’d shared plenty of rooms in their long acquaintance. They’d grown up next-door neighbors. They’d camped out in backyard tents, snuck into each other’s rooms as kids. Now she occasionally crashed at his house or he at hers. Sleeping in a double room wasn’t the end of the world.
And all he really wanted was to lie down.
Chloe tucked her hair behind her ear. “Are you sure? I know you’ve had a tough couple of shifts and probably want to veg.”
She was right, but she didn’t infringe on that, except for the underwear part, and sweatpants were just as comfortable. He’d ditch the boxers and probably be even more comfortable. “I can veg with you there.”
She smiled. “I’ll be quiet as a mouse.”
He loved her, but quiet she was not. “Chloe, if you stay quiet for five minutes I’ll consider it a miracle.”
She stuck her tongue out at him, then made a motion with her hand like she zipped her lips, before she tossed the imaginary key over her shoulder.
Amelia Rose pointed down the hallway. “You’re in room number three, a lucky number, you know.”
For reasons unknown to him, a bad feeling settled in Jack’s chest, but he shook it off. There was nothing to worry about. This was not the first in a series of unpleasant events. Everything would be fine.
I hope you fall in love with the magic you'll discover in Moonbright, Maine,
