Rediscover chills and thrills...and quills...on Halloween!

Five Jewels of the Quill authors offer stories that will charm, bewitch and scare you silly.

A collection for readers to enjoy during the spooky season...or any day of the year!

Mistress of the Shadow Hounds {paranormal romance}
by Margaret L. Carter (Dame Onyx)

A sinister artifact handed down in her family forces a young woman into conflict with creatures from an alien dimension that threaten not only her life but the safety of the entire world.


Cuddly {horror}
by Dee Lloyd (Dame Aquamarine)

Sam Farber heads for a neighborhood bar after a particularly grueling shift in the emergency room. This Hallowe'en had brought out all the crazies. He'd spent hours dealing with the bloody aftermath of a gun battle between two teenaged gangs. All he wants is an hour or two of warmth and companionship. He gets more than he's looking for.


The Scarecrow and Ms. Moon {paranormal romance}
by Barbara Raffin (Dame Jade)

Never make a witch mad. Jackson Wolfe did and he's now a scarecrow in her garden. Jessie Moon doesn't like liars and, in a fit of anger, turned the man she loves into a scarecrow. Now, four months later, she's exhausted every spell to restore him, been put on probation by her coven, and is still angry at Jackson for lying to her.

On All Hallows Eve, the coven assembles at Jessie's house to restore Jackson to his living, human form at the stroke of midnight. What Jessie doesn't realize is that this is a test for her--a test that will determine whether or not she will be allowed to remain in the coven. Since impulsive anger is this novice witch's problem, Jessie is given the twenty-four hours of Halloween in which to learn to control her anger and love Jackson enough to let him go or to lose her place in the coven. As if that wasn't enough, if she fails, not only will she be cast out of the coven, but Jackson will be turned back into a scarecrow...forever.


The Charmer (North of Nonesuch Series, Book 9) {romantic horror}
by Jane Toombs (Dame Turquoise)

Who is the charmer and who the charmed? A very difficult distinction to make. If Will Pasanen fails to solve the problem, more than his love for Lily Fowler is doomed...


Paper Tiger (Kaleidoscope Series, Book 5) {contemporary romantic suspense}
by Karen Wiesner (Dame Amethyst)

Kaleidoscope Office Building provides employment to nine hot, young singles--all about to make a love connection. Working 9 to 5 has never been so complicated...or so much fun!

Billy LaPointe's wife died only a couple years after they married, leaving him with a son to raise on his own. Nine years later, he's found love again with Veronica Spencer and his teenage son Damian is just as smitten with her. But after years of hearing Roni hedge on his marriage proposals, Billy is desperate. Determined to make her his forever, he offers her an ultimatum that he soon regrets. What he doesn't know is that Roni has a secret past she doesn't want to look back and confront--a past that may have come back to haunt her. Can she risk losing Billy and Damian because of what could be a true threat...or merely a paper tiger?
