Creepy Gothic Romance on sale for Halloween PLUS something cute

It's true! Ours is Just a Little Sorrow is the perfect Halloween read. I mean, if you like a little Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and Charlotte Bronte Jane Eyre and romance and love triangles that aren't triangles and historicals that take place in the future and mysterious passageways in castles and...just READ it. It's .99 until Halloween.

OURS IS JUST A LITTLE SORROW

The colony of New Geneva has risen from the ashes of her dying mother planet, Earth, by rebuilding a society based on a time before everything went horribly, horribly wrong...the Victorian Era...

Violet Merriweather first sets eyes on Colonel Winston when he purchases her at auction from Witherspoon Academy, the orphanage where she’d been raised after her rescue from Earth. Dutifully, as she was taught, Violet pushes away her fear of the monstrous, forbidding Thornfield Abbey, and throws herself into her work as governess to the Colonel’s youngest son.

But the Colonel's elder sons have other ideas.

John and Gideon Winston are as different as night and day, and each wants to claim Violet for his own. John immediately charms her with his intelligence and cordial demeanor, while Gideon, the dark rogue, delights in flustering her at every opportunity, awakening a yearning she doesn't understand and most assuredly does not want. She tries to deny her pull to both men, but an uneasy midnight bargain with one forges a new alliance as she’s dazzled by an underground New Geneva she hadn't known existed. And temptations she cannot resist.

But something is preying on the women of New Geneva, something that threatens to unleash the ghosts of Thornfield and drag them all into hell. And that something wants Violet most of all.Excerpt.

CUTE baby! Can't wait to get my little man into his first Halloween costume this year. And thank you so, so much for sharing the details on Ours is Just a Little Sorrow. I have been a big fan ever since I read Falling Under in the airport two years ago and am so excited to see this new story. Just picked up my copy for Kindle! <3

Happy Halloween! <3
