Historical Romance, Romantic Suspense/Mystery
Years ago, Jake Mallory fell in love all over again with Ashley Donegal—while he and the Krewe were investigating a murder that replicated a horrible Civil War death at her family's Donegal Plantation.
Now, Ashley and Jake are back—planning for their wedding, which will take place the following month at Donegal Plantation, her beautiful old antebellum home.
But Halloween is approaching and Ashley is haunted by a ghost warning her of deaths about to come in the city of New Orleans, deaths caused by the same murderer who stole the life of the beautiful ghost haunting her dreams night after night.
At first, Jake is afraid that returning home has simply awakened some of the fear of the past…
But as Ashley's nightmares continue, a body count begins to accrue in the city…
And it's suddenly a race to stop a killer before Hallow's Eve comes to a crashing end, with dozens more lives at stake, not to mention heart, soul, and life for Jake and Ashley themselves.

3 ghostly stars for HALLOW BE THE HAUNT.
As a descendent of the famous Southern Donegal family, Ashley Donegal returns to the Donegal Plantation every year during the Halloween season to help with the haunted tours. Nothing could keep her away, not even the dreams of the dead she's been having or the fact that her fiancé's elite Krewe of Hunters will be working the case. Jake Mallory and his team are top FBI agents sent to work on sensitive, often paranormal cases. When his most recent case takes him not just to New Orleans, but straight to Donegal Plantation during the most haunted time of the year, he'll have to worry about both potential victims and his fiancée as the case draws closer to conclusion.
HALLOW BE THE HAUNT is a novella in the A Krewe of Hunters series, and also a stand-alone addition to the innovative and fun 1001 Dark Nights series featuring sensual and erotic stories by a variety of popular authors inspired by the classic The Arabian Nights tale.
I've only read one other book in this series, which was also a 1001 Dark Nights offering, and I wasn't a fan, so I didn't have a high amount of confidence that I would enjoy HALLOW BE THE HAUNT. To my surprise, I didn't hate it, most likely due to reading it a few days before Halloween. There wasn't any super hot sex in this novella, and I felt like I was missing a lot of the character development and quirks that were likely in Ashley and Jake's original full length story, but as a quickie seasonal paranormal read, it wasn't bad.
Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; undetermined condom use; no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; violence/murder.
