So, back to the gist of things...and what this blog hop is all about: The Autumn Harvest.

Here's my take...

Autumn brings Samhain, the end of summer, and the start of a new cycle. It is full of amazing hues and scents, such as the deep, bright orange of the leaves, and a house full of apples and cinnamon. For me, this is a season close to my heart as it brings me one of my favorite celebrations: Halloween :). I find this time of year very romantic. What about you? With the first gentle breezes, I imagine long walks in the country snuggling to a loved one (*wink), or reading a good book while savoring a glass of good red wine and some warm apple pie. Hmmmm... could it get any better? Although I'm romance reader, I do get comfortable reading a scary or suspenseful story or two more so these days - there's just something about it, right? - and totally love that vibe! I always reckon Autumn is the perfect backdrop for those kinds of reads :).

So tell me what you like most about Autumn, and don't forget to comment and enter the Rafflecopter giveaway, too!

Happy Autumn and happy reading!

If you love romance but enjoy the odd spooky story or two (without gore and dismemberment :)), you will enjoy Tales from the Mist:

TALES FROM THE MIST will take you on a journey into the dark world of the paranormal. These twelve stories vary in their degree of horror, yet all reach across the boundaries of their genres into the chilling realms of the macabre. Witches, ghosts, shape-shifters and vampire rats are some of the creatures that reign within these pages. Authors included are: Scott Nicholson, Rhonda Hopkins, Marty Young, Cate Dean, Tamara Ward, Meredith Bond, Catie Rhodes, Greg Carrico, Mitzi Flyte, Natalie G. Owens, *lizzie starr and Stacey Joy Netzel.


A mother makes a Faustian bargain for her son’s freedom. But can she truly meet the cost when his real prison demands payment of a different debt?
