My kids used to start on October 1 and keep it up until I heard it in my sleep.
Like my kids, I love Halloween and have fond memories of trick or treating and having a bag full of candy. I gave everything but chocolate candy away.
I'll make a confession. How many of you buy the kind of Halloween candy that YOU like—just in case there are some left over? I'm raising my hand! For me, nothing beats KitKat's and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. What are your favorites?
Dressing Up the Blog for October
Our blog update is done. Although it's not wearing a costume, per se, it has been dressed up with some new quote-graphics on the Home Page.
You'll also see several new covers on the right sidebar so be sure and check out those new books. The Movie Theater has some new videos, including the one for our Halloween promotion, and all the details about our October Promotion are on the Monthly Giveaways Page.

Blame It On Chocolate
Chloe Elliot was the good girl. She’d never been a hell-raiser. Never gotten drunk, used drugs, smoked pot, or slept around. She didn’t even curse! Since her dad was the son of a minister and the oft-elected mayor, and her mom was the elementary school principal, she'd had no choice but to live a life above reproach. Truthfully, it really hadn’t been that difficult.
Until Hunter Cole returned to his home town.
That was the beginning of Chloe's fall from good girl status. There was just something about the man that addled her brain and created havoc in her body.
Hunter Cole reckoned he had the best of all possible worlds. He'd played for the NFL, and even though two back surgeries had ended that career, he was lucky enough to follow in his dad's footsteps and work the family ranch and also follow his granddad's path and be the sheriff in his west Texas town. Life was perfect.
Until he dropped by the library to say hello to his best friend's little sister.
Chloe wasn't so little any more. In fact, just looking at her made his common sense evaporate. She affected him like no other woman--and he'd had women throwing themselves at him since he was a high school quarterback! If he made a move on her, her brother would nail his hide to the wall. There was only one thing he could do, but did he really want to do that? The thought of it made his bachelor heart shudder with alarm.
