From Under the Veil: Guest Blog and Giveaway with Kayden Mcleod

Thank you so much, Fang-Tastic Books, for having me here today!

Halloween is just around the corner, and with it, traditions both new and old come into play. Kids go trick-or-treating and there are parties galore. Creatures crawl out from under their hiding places—escaping the veil that we, humanity create with our costumes and tendencies to explain away the unbelievable even more than we usually do.

We don’t trust our senses, and something otherworldly could walk right in front of us—smelling different, looking obscure—and we do nothing more than nod at them, moving on to whatever activity catches our attention next.

My Halloween erotic romance, Masquerade encompasses that. Abigail takes what’s in front of her at face-value, when it’s anything but. She thinks Cyrus Jericho is just an everyday vampire, and her friend Dina is just another werewolf. But are they?

Join Abigail on a misleading adventure filled with vampires, werewolves and zombies on All Hallows Eve, where she learns that many things she has come to believe about her home are all shrouded in a masquerade—what lies behind the façade isn’t always what it seems…

What lies behind the façade isn’t always what it seems

Abigail claimed the land of North Vancouver as her own, sharing it only with a clan of vampires, the Jericho Coven, who accepted the werewolf into their territory without qualm. Within their numbers is one, Cyrus Jericho; a suave, brooding vampire who isn’t quite as he appeared. He declares Abigail for his own the moment they meet, despite the fact that another werewolf pack is in British Columbia looking to claim Abigail into their midst, no matter what they must do to see that goal complete.

I will be giving away an e-copy of Jezebel’s Article to one person who leaves a comment.

Jezebel’s Article is the first appearance of The Jericho Coven, who emerges in this Silver Halloween Treat.

Happy Halloween…

I haven't actually heard of these titles yet - my fault. But I think I really like the first cover. Very dark and forbidding. The skull does it!
