HatH - Guest post and giveaway from author Rebecca Zanetti
I love the Halloween season. We still have the vibrant autumn leaves, but all of a sudden, they’re covered with mist and starting to fall. The nights are longer, the days shorter, and something howls around midnight. Do you see why I write paranormals? :-)
Growing up, we had a haunted house nearby in the forest. Well, it was more like an abandoned lake cabin…but I’m sure it was haunted. It had a red clay tennis court that was great to ride and slide bikes on just after a rainstorm. The attic of the house was wallpapered with old newspapers dating back to the 1950’s. We spent hours reading those yellowed papers—they were full of advertisements for snake oil and magical cures.
When we got older, we’d go into the house after dark. If we were upstairs, we’d hear footsteps below. If we stood in the first story…we’d hear weird creaks up in the attic. A chilly breeze would sweep through…cold but not really scary. There was never anything truly frightening that happened, but I always felt we weren’t alone there.
I don’t know who owned the cabin way back when, but one day new people bought the land and tore down the house. They found old…very old…bones buried just under the foundation.
Nobody has ever figured out whose bones they were. To this day, I’m not sure we were ever alone. But if somebody or something was there, they seemed friendly. Makes you wonder…doesn’t it?
I’m celebrating this month because Provoked, the fifth book in the Dark Protector series, releases on November 1st. Right now Provoked is only available in e-book form, but there should be a print book available within a few months. Here’s a quick blurb about Provoked:
A casualty of the war between the demons and the vampires, Jase Kayrs has been missing for six long years. His older brothers want answers—but they’re going to have to get them from an unlikely source. For when Kane Kayrs tracks down Amber Freebird, what he finds is a blonde, vegan pacifist who has no intention of using her skills in his war…
Amber enjoys her life of chaotic freedom and has no intention of falling in line just because a sexy-as-sin vampire insists on order. Unfortunately, he discovers she may be the only hope they have of finding his brother, and there’s no way he’s going to let her go—even if it means mating her to gain her cooperation. The two are as different as can be, yet when the dominant Kane and the untamed Amber finally unite to rescue Jase, they just may find that opposites really do attract…
To celebrate, I’d like to give away one copy of Fated, Book 1 in the series, to a commenter here. Have you ever seen a haunted house…or…do you believe in ghosts?
She currently writes the Dark Protector series for Kensington Publishing, and just sold a new romantic suspense series to Grand Central Publishing at auction.
