About the Moonlight Dating Series:

Something to Live for
Available from: 
Kobo 
(eBook)

***HAUTE PINK MAGAZINE'S 2012 SUMMER READING LIST PICK!*** 

"This book does not fade to black!" 
--- Wren Deloro 

"Delicately cast into a frame with frissons of the supernatural, this short story will have appeal to many types of readers, as it did to me. Ms. Owens has an intriguing touch with the aspects of characterization, plotting, and setting imagery; I'm quite eager to read more from her." 


Fifteen years ago, one fateful day bound the lives of two perfect strangers…

Melita Saari-Quinn is living the consequences of a traumatizing psychic event that turned her adolescence upside down. Now, disillusioned with her job as a psychotherapist and desiring a change from her lackluster existence, she hopes that something out of her  ordinary sphere of existence - something totally uninhibited and spontaneous - will renew her zest for life.

Alex Moncado seems to have it all – good looks, a successful business, and a fun life in “party central” of the Mediterranean: the island of Malta. Except for one day in the year when he can’t help but remember a tragedy that never should have been. One day he’d rather forget, because if he doesn’t, the guilt will consume him.


Can one passionate night together banish the ghosts of the past and give two lost souls a second chance? 


Only Fate can tell…


*********

Everything to Lose
(On Sale during the blog hop @ 99c!)
Available from:
(eBook)

From the suburbs of London to the old charm of Ascoli Piceno, Italy, follow the journey a broken couple must take to discover the long-buried secrets that shattered their marriage. 

Lisbeth Marsh put everything on hold to be with her ideal man, even the wish to have a family. But when the dream of everlasting love vanished into thin air, she was faced with the mistakes and prejudices of her choices. 

Dane Marsh is a proud man who spent years worshiping the gods of ambition. Toward this single-minded purpose, he sacrificed his happiness and peace of mind. Now that he knows what he's lost, will he have the courage to turn his life around? 


With a little meddling from Moonlight Dating's Jeanette Lagrange and a dash of magic, the two embark on the trip of a lifetime to bury the ghosts of the past. 


"Sensual, Emotionally Impacting, Deep-a Winner!"
"Natalie G. Owens always writes in awesome locations."

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.

About AN INCONVENIENT DEBT, my story in TALES FROM THE MIST:

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?
