Here is a Story I wrote called "When It's Time" by Leanne Gagnon

Copyright Leanne Gagnon When It’s Time...

When It’s Time
As a child Maggie Simmons had never had to worry about spirits and ghosts.  She had a lovely and care-free childhood with barely a nightmare to her name.  Once and awhile though she would have a reoccurring dream about a young man dressed as a soldier.  They would hug and kiss and the young man would ride away on his horse.  Maggie would often wake up after this dream with tears streaming her face and a sense of sadness.
As a teen Maggie was quiet but social and outgoing.  Everyone always had a kind word to say about Maggie.  She lost her parents at the age of 18, at the beginning of her senior year in High School. Her parents left her secure with her home and a little insurance money.  She was able to live on her own and continue school.  
“Tonight’s the Night!” Maggie said out loud to herself. Grinning from ear to ear, she set up all her supplies to get ready for the Halloween Dance.  A couple of weeks earlier she had gone shopping …

Halloween Bash!!!!!! LAST DAY!!!!!!!!!!

So this is our last day to party :(  It's too bad because it's been such a wonderful time!  I've loved having each and every one of you here celebrating All Hallows Eve!
Our final destination is................

Waverly Hills Sanatorium, located in Louisville, Kentucky, opened in 1910 as a two-story hospital to accommodate 40 to 50 tuberculosis patients. It has since come to be considered one of the most haunted buildings in the Eastern United States. In the early 20th century, Jefferson County was severely stricken with an outbreak of tuberculosis. The original Waverly Hills building was soon home to over 140 patients. A larger hospital was needed for the overwhelming number of patients coming in, so construction of a five-story building that could hold more than 400 patients began in March 1924.
The most common experience of visitors seems to be "moving shadows" or "shadow people". These are shadows that appear to have some substance - able to "walk…

Welcome Back to Day 2 of Our Halloween Bash!!!!

Welcome Back Everyone!
Today we will be exploring the wondrous Town of Halloween. Halloween Town is my children's favourite Halloween Movie.  I thought it might be fun to put a little spin on this make-believe town.

During the day Halloween Town looks like a lovely place to visit and play. 

But!  At Night it turns into a spooky and scary place.  We are going to do like most Ghost Hunters and explore this town.  Let's see what do we need....  
OK Everyone grab a piece of equipment and let's start exploring! To the right we have a graveyard, who wants to explore there?  Be sure to bring your camera and recorder to try and catch some EVPs.  You never know what ghostly voices might come about.  Down the road a little i another Haunted house, be sure to stay away from the windows, they are seriously creepy.

Don't worry Ladies!  We have some wonderful men in Uniform or Halloween Costumes who will stick around to protect us!

Toni's Review of All Caught Up by Sophia Shaw ***5 Stars***

A woman with connections…

Thanks to her elite Miami matchmaking service, Jasmine Croft is financially secure—and much too busy finding love for others to settle into a relationship of her own. But when a successful—and skeptical—crime author becomes her client, Jasmine finds herself up against the greatest challenge of her career—and maybe her life…

A man of mystery…

Handsome widower Robert Rankin would rather be working—but he needs a woman to accompany him to his brother’s four day wedding celebration. His expectations are low—until his date arrives: Jasmine. A twist of fate brought her there, into the arms of a man far more intriguing and irresistible than she ever imagined. But as the days extend into a relationship, will meddling friends, scheming relatives, and Robert’s own ghosts ultimately tear them apart?...


This is the first book from Sophia Shaw that I’ve read and I doubt it will be the last!

Jasmine is a woman I would be honored to call friend. She is le…

Toni's Review of Devilishly Hot by Kathy Love ***3.5 Stars***

And you thought your job was hell. . .

Annie Lou Riddle had a plan: Move to New York City. Break into the fashion industry. Work her way to the top. Nowhere in that scenario did she expect to accidentally sell her soul in exchange for a job at Hot! Magazine. Oops.

Demons, it seems, aren't big on letting mortals off the hook. Now Annie is stuck working as assistant/personal slave to Finola White—diva extraordinaire, and glamorous she-devil. Whatever Finola wants, she gets, and she wants Annie to match her up with Nick Rossi, the gorgeous detective investigating shady doings at Hot!

Frankly, Annie sees the appeal. Nick is effortlessly sexy, rugged, charming—and the one man Annie should definitely not be flirting with, or kissing, or. . . Oops. But some loves are too devilishly hot to resist. . .


Intrigue, a touch of mystery and a whole lotta demons!

Annie is a southern girl transplanted into the dog-eat-dog world of New York City. She came to New York to make …

Toni's Review of The Pleasure of Bedding a Baroness by Tamara Lejeune ***3.5 Stars***

A gentleman without scruples...

Patience Waverly has no time for uppity English aristocrats - and no desire to become one. But when Patience and her twin, Prudence, arrive in London from Philadelphia to claim an inheritance, she discovers that she is now a Baroness. Prudence, meanwhile, is determined to marry into a title of her own. She sets her cap at Max Purefoy, the future Duke of Sunderland - and, to Patience's dismay, the most seductive scoundrel she has ever met...

A desire without limits...

Max has little interest in frivolous Prudence, but the outspoken, outrageously attractive Baroness intrigues him. When Prudence's plan to entrap Max almost ruins him, he seeks amends from Patience. She must become his wife. And he will settle for nothing less than making their union one of unrelenting, unending pleasure...


Patience and Prudence Waverly have arrived in London from Philadelphia. The twin sisters are there to inherit their uncle’s estate. Well at least…
