Zebra, Oct 2003
Megan and Finn Douglas perform their musical act in a Salem, Massachusetts hotel during Halloween week. Instead of a warm return home for Megan, who once lived here, nightmares plague her. She dreams that Finn is evil and wants to harm her. Sex after they fall asleep turns very rough and frightens Megan. At the same time, Megan hears tales about the history of Salem besides the highly publicized historical witch-hunt. Several people including her cousin warns her that Finn is evil.
Finn worries about his wife and the strange occurrences including a weird fog that engulfs them. He calls an acquaintance from New Orleans, Lucian, who arrives faster than a human could, comes to help. Lucien and his friends struggle to keep Megan and Finn safe, but against what and who are unknown.
Though ALL HOLLOW'S EVE takes time to set the cast and location, once the troubles begin, this becomes a paranormal romance. The exciting tale keeps readers wondering until the final confrontation who the identity of the bad guys are. Finn and Megan are delightful protagonists and the secondary players bring life to Salem or are a well-developed part of Lucien's pack.
