I can’t think of anything sexier than a Brazen Publishing Halloween bash! Really, can you imagine what a Halloween party with all the characters from this imprint (fans self)!?!?
this one’s been going on all month long to celebrate their Hot Halloween anthology: LOVERS UNMASKED! They’re holding a great giveaway (bottom of the post) with a Kindle Fire as the prize!
Samanthe Beck, award winning romance author, is one of the contributors to this hauntingly hot book (everything from Brazen is surface-of-the-sun hot) and she’s guest posting for me today! I love costumes (even though I am cheap about them) and my husband, well, he doesn’t. When I read the post below it reminded me of the two of us. To top it all off there’s an angel, a devil and some hunky police detectives. Wow, if that’s not a recipe for horny hijinks I don’t know what is!
About Lovers Unmasked
Mystery and intrigue surround Halloween night as friends surrender to long-hidden desires, lovers relinquish control, and the heat of passion threatens to consume them all…
Enjoy your tricks and treats in this sexy anthology featuring bestselling authors Katee Robert, Cari Quinn, Samanthe Beck, and Tessa Bailey.
WELCOME! Samanthe Beck!
Thanks, Fangs, Wands and Fairy Dust, for having me as a guest today! I’m thrilled to be here.
I’m also thrilled to announce my novella “Wicked Games” released this month as part of a Halloween anthology called “Lovers Unmasked” from Entangled’s super-sexy Brazen line.
One of the best aspects of contributing to the anthology, (besides sharing pages with amazing authors like NYT/USA Today bestselling author Katee Robert, USA Today bestselling author Cari Quinn, and award winning author Tessa Bailey), was the chance to write a story that takes place at a Halloween party. Not just any Halloween party, a huge, adults-only bash at a Hollywood club called Deuces. Such a ripe environment for mistaken identities, hidden agendas, and some very wicked games. 😉
Valentine’s Day may have a lock on most romantic holiday, but I think Halloween wins, hands down, for sexiest.
It’s all about the costumes. What other day of the year can you dress up as a French maid, or a nurse, or a hooker, or Miley Cyrus in a vinyl bikini, (unless you’re Miley Cyrus, in which case the answer is EVERYday), and hunt down the lifeguard, caveman, cowboy or Jedi Knight or your dreams?

When it came to outfitting my heroine, Stacy Roberts, and her twin sister, Kylie, in the perfect costumes, I toyed around with several twins-y ideas, but finally decided to let them go against type. Stacy, the “naughty” twin, dresses as a not-so-innocent angel, and Kylie, the “good” twin, becomes a spandex-clad she-devil.

My hero, LAPD homicide detective Ian Ford, had less time to plan, (like, about five minutes), so I aimed for something he could scrounge from his closet. His partner, Trevor McCade, was in the same boat. How did they do? Well…
The bedside clock caught Ian’s eye as he left the bedroom. “Jesus, you drive like my grandma,” he complained into the phone as he strode down the hall. “Where the hell are you?” He swung his front door open.
Trevor stood there holding his phone to his ear, wearing a dark suit and tie, same as he wore on any workday, and a pair of thick, black-rimmed glasses Ian had thankfully never seen before.
“I’m at your front door.”
Ian disconnected and stuffed his phone in the back pocket of his jeans. “That’s not a costume.”
His partner pocketed his phone and stepped inside. “This is the most successful costume of all time.”
“Seriously, man, what the fuck are you supposed to be?”
“I’m Clark Kent. I went classic and heroic.”
“You went lazy and uncreative. You’re a step down from ghost.” He dropped down on the living room sofa and shoved his feet into black boots.
“What the fuck are you supposed to be?”
Ian stood, rolled his ski mask down over his face and arranged the bottom until it covered the crew neck of his long-sleeved black T-shirt. “Cat burglar.”
“Strange and creepy.”
He shoved the ski mask up and smirked. “Mysterious and dangerous.”
“Whatever. We’re on the job, not out to win an award for best costume.”
“Which is good, because you don’t stand a chance,” Ian shot back and walked down the hall.
How about you? What’s the sexiest Halloween costume you’ve dared to don? Post a comment below and let me know!
Thanks Samanthe! Loved the Excerpt. My favorite costume was probably the Vampire costume I wore to Authors After Dark Vampire Ball this past summer.
