Are you ready to head on over to the Haunted Circus at the Boumi Shrine October 29th – 31st?
Let’s take a little journey into last weekend with this one with a little good in the hood. Summer and I spent the morning working on our upper body strength while helping the Shrine build the walls for the upcoming Haunted Circus. We had such a fantastic time hanging out with Mom Chris and the gang, while accumulating blisters, banged fingers and a splinter or two. You know the normal for nonbuilders who ae attempting their hands at hammering.
I wasn’t sporting a pink hammer like Mom Chris, but I was able to hold my own. Contrary to popular belief you can choke your hammer for better control, leave me alone I am only five feet and gave it my best shot, and I firmly believe that getting the nail fully sunk in just three strikes is a myth. Although I do love seeing those who profess that they can do it fail. 😊 Does that make me evil? Ahh who cares, I will be evil if I want to. 😊
I didn’t get a lot of reading done as it was nonstop working from the time the frames were built until we had to depart early for a prior engagement, but I had the perfect book queued up on my Kindle app. This book is one of my absolute favorites from the series. I just love those dark De La Cruz brothers! It is something about the barely suppressed darkness that almost makes them more beast than man, and the over-the-top alphaness that makes them almost impossible to live with. And absolutely impossible to live without for the special lady who finds the softness in their hearts. This book is another one of those ones that I just find myself drawn to over and over again.
If you love a haunted house and are free Halloween weekend, be sure to stop by the Haunted Circus and see what all of the sweat and splinters are all about. It will be the perfect spooky night for the entire family.

Author Christine Feehan
Meet a savage hunter from the darkest jungles and the beautiful prey he’ll never let escape in this sensual Carpathian novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Christine Feehan. Rafael De La Cruz has spent centuries hunting vampires with his brothers, and with each passing year his capacity to feel emotions has grown weaker and weaker until finally there’s barely even a memory left—until only sheer willpower keeps him from turning into the very abomination he hunts. But it’ll take more than will to keep him away from the woman who is meant to be his and his alone... For five years, rancher Colby Jansen has been the sole protector of her younger half-siblings, and with fierce determination and work she has kept her family together and the ranch operational. Now, the De La Cruz brothers are threatening that stability. They claim that her siblings belong with their father’s family, not with her. Colby vows to fight them—especially the cold and arrogant Rafael De La Cruz. But Rafael is after more than her family—he wants Colby, and will not let anything stand between them. After ages of loneliness, the raw desire to possess her overwhelms his very soul, driving him to claim her as his lifemate.

Share the load with me
This has to be one of my favorite books in the series! I can read it again and again and never get tired of it. It’s just something about those De La Cruz brothers. I don’t know if it’s their alpha male dominance, the sensual masculinity, the way they are completely taken with their ladies, or the way they give way to their lifemate when they don’t intend to, but they are really the perfect guys. And how about those ladies! I love Colby! She is so innocent, hides her fear and pain behind a lot of bluster, and she loves her siblings enough to give up everything she dreamed of for them. Like all the Dark books, the author brought danger right to our doorstep and then salvation wasn’t far behind. This book is a fantastic read! Whether it takes a weekend or a week this book is certainly worth reading.
