Good morning, readers! 

It's Thursday, time for another New Voices guest.  Not ready to let go of Halloween just yet?  Well, Best Selling Author Jennifer Conner is here to keep you wrapped up in the festivities with her new book, Love Comes for Halloween. Jennifer also has a giveaway today, so read through to the end.


Love Comes for Halloween

Now it’s her turn. Until she’s kissed, Jane, is the last one of her girlfriends to wear the Mobile Mistletoe. Feeling pressured by her friends, she jumps on her dad’s motorcycle and heads out on the open road. But she doesn’t get far before it breaks down. What else can go wrong? Will she be eaten by a bear?

Gage has a past he wants to forget. Retreating to the mountains, where he can build custom bikes and cars in seclusion, he wants to give back for the mistakes he’s made.

Neither Jane or Gage are looking for a relationship, but isn’t Halloween the perfect time of year to scare up some love?

I'm turning the blog over to Jennifer now, who's going to talk about her love for Halloween.

I love Halloween. It’s always fun to dress up and be someone else. With Love Comes for Halloween, my characters are really hiding behind themselves and not with costumes. It was a challenge to wrap the characters to come around and grow throughout the short story.


At the end, I think I have a fun twist on Halloween, that I hope everyone enjoys.

What are some of your favorite Halloween costumes or party ideas? A few years ago I was a ‘web surfer’. Hawaiian shirt with cobwebs all over me. I’ve been Monica Lewinski, Sarah Palin, the gal from Ab Fab, and a Bollywood movie star We’ve served lemon Jello from a potty chair and had toxic punch and kitty litter cake. When my daughter younger, she wanted to be Tonya Harding, complete with a baseball bat and ice skating costume. The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree.

I’m not sure for this year. There haven’t been too many good people in the news. Anyone have ideas?

I hope you enjoy Loves Comes for Halloween as much as I enjoyed writing it!

I have had a ton of fun writing the Mobile Mistletoe series over the past year and it’s a good story of how I came up with the idea. I was at a Christmas shop with my best friend. Her daughter found this dorkey headband with a spring of plastic mistletoe dangling off it. She put it on and came up with the title, Mobile Mistletoe. Why start it on Valentine’s Day? That upped the stakes when four girlfriends make a pact to wear it until they are kissed. That was Christmas… now it’s Valentine’s Day, Saint Patrick’s Day, The Fourth of July and now the last of the four, Jane for Halloween.

I left Jane as the last of the four because she’s the tattooed bad girl.

So what better to find than a bad boy :)

Let's take a peek, shall we?

“Well it’s working. You’re beautiful in the morning.” His gaze locked with hers and she knew he meant what he said. “I don’t know how you manage to look so good. I look so bad I must look good.” He chuckled


She shifted feet and tucked her hair behind her ear. Gage must have just taken a shower, he smelled like manly spicy soap and shampoo and his hair was still damp at the tips. He was cute. He was very cute. What would he look like without all that beard scuff? She tipped her head and tried to imagine.

He took off the hood of the car and lay in on the workbench for her to begin airbrushing the eagle design. It was hard to concentrate on what she was doing when her eyes kept wandering to the fine set of Levi’s bent over the car which were attached to Gage’s rear end.

As hours passed, the afternoon sun heated the shop and soon Gage shucked off his flannel shirt and threw it over a chair. Jane’s pulse jumped when Gage reached over his head to stretch. He exposed a sliver of ab muscles and a trail of black belly hair. Oh my. Like a fine lady of the South, Jane wished she had a piece of paper to fan herself.

"Victorians used the term 'limbs' as a euphenism for legs, which were thought to be so sexually exciting to a man, even a glimpse of a table leg could incite him to sexual frenzy. Table skirts were invented to prevent any unnatural unions between men and furniture."
