“A Hundred Lonely Halloweens” is now available from Torquere Press!
When Micah Harrison bought Delany House, he didn’t suspect that it was haunted – or that the lonely ghost of Richard Delany would be the most appealing man he’d met in a long time. As Micah learns more about Richard, he realizes he’s in danger of falling in love, but he gives in to temptation anyway when Richard offers him the gift of an erotic Halloween encounter. However, Richard’s real gift is not only a night of sensual pleasure, but also a chance for Micah to find the love he’d been looking for and never found.

It’s also been added to our Short Stories page, along with our two other stories that have been released this year.
As I mentioned before, we were inspired by our mutual love of The Ghost and Mrs. Muir, but we had another inspiration as well. While surfing through Livejournal, I came across a photo of this house:
The creepy yet oddly gorgeous decay of the old house perching precariously near a steep fall caught our interest, as well as the story behind it, which you can read about here. We wanted the Delany House to have the same sort of faded beauty (although it isn’t quite as run down as this!), and we incorporated the tragic aspect of the waterfall as well.
“A Hundred Lonely Halloweens” is a ghost story and a romance, and it’s a little bittersweet, which we thought was appropriate for the season. We hope our readers enjoy it!
