Happy Halloween! Just treats, no tricks!

Hey, everyone

The weather has turned here in Germany - the leaves are falling from the trees, and the temperature has definitely dropped. The other night, my windows actually fogged up on the outside! Apparently, this is a good thing as it means my windows are stopping any heat-loss, but still. It's the first time I've seen that happen. LOL. How about where you are? Are you heading into summer or winter?

Born into a wealthy and historically infamous family, all Ryson Melford wants is to live a simple life.

A twist of fate leads him to a man named Jack, changing everything. One touch and Ryson knows he’ll do whatever it takes to keep Jack in his life, despite the warnings from his brothers.

But Jack is not what he seems. Harboring dark and deadly secrets, he’s a mystery that is inexplicably tied to the Melford family. The closer Ryson and Jack get, the more dangerous things become as the present begins to reflect the past, threatening to destroy what is left of Ryson and his brothers.

Ryson finds himself trapped between doing what is right for his family and the man he is unexpectedly connected to. When truths come out and past mistakes are repeated, blood will be spilled...and a magic that was all but forgotten is unleashed in a battle that may spell the end for all of them.

The Onyx Prince (The Journals of Ravier #3) by J.R. Vaineo

A FATE TRULY WORSE THAN DEATH . . . Is there such a thing? Before travelling through a portal to the world of Muraine with my friend, Gemma Galloway, I would’ve said no. But now? I’ve come to realize that there is. So many things are worse than death, here on this world with magic.

​One matter at the forefront is his desire for me. The King of Vitiosus, Zymarc, desires me for his next apprentice. I’ve managed to resist him, thus far. That decision, however, is harder and harder to hold to. There is nothing he will not do to get to me, to tempt me, to break me. And he means to break me. But if he cannot have me, well . . . as I said, there are fates truly worse than death itself. And I’ve seen death too, a spirit most terrifying and powerful. Yet it is Zymarc, whom I fear more than death, more than Soren, more than anything.

​I didn’t know why, either. Why should I, Tyler Malik Ravier, fear him? Then I saw his true face. Not the face of the Vitiosyn King. But the face he had before the change, before the corruption of that vile magic, when he was simply an Onyx Warrior. His features are familiar. On and on, I agonize over who he reminds me of. Can it be true? Could he really be who I think he is? And what if he is? Do I hold the strength and courage to put that creature down? Or simply will I hand over the dragon-horse to appease him?

​Or, worse . . . will I join him?
