Through the centuries, Samhain has evolved into Halloween with the addition of a multitude of other cultural influences. To me, today is still a Celtic festival to honor the circle of life in different ways. It’s that mystic day that’s not a day, in the sense it’s not part of the calendar. For the Celts, a year finished around October 30th and the next one started two days later. Then, October 31st was not a day, so to speak. Because of this particularity, Samhain connected two realms: old and new; departed and living.
favorite them of mine under either form, Samhain or Halloween, I’ve written a few stories set around October 31st.
The newest one is called Wiccan Fire and will be released on December 5th as part of the Holidays Ever After boxed set.
He’s an atheist. She’s a high priestess. Yet they were meant to be.
A childhood trauma turned Detective Brandon Winters into an atheist and the tough reality of his job leaves no room for illusions about the afterlife. Or past lives, for that matter. He puts no stock in those weird dreams he often has. They are, after all, just that. Dreams. Nothing more. So when skeptical Detective Winters saves a teenager, he’s just doing his job. Little does he know, his lack of faith will be put to the test and turn his world upside down.
Regina Quinn knows for a fact that the afterlife exists. She knows souls are reborn multiple times and that Samhain, aka Halloween, is the day when the veil between the worlds gets thinner. As High Priestess of her coven, business woman and protector of her family, she has no time for romance. A passionate one-night-stand with a stranger shouldn’t change that. Or should it? Will Regina risk it all for a fling with the hot Detective Winters? That would go against all she’s ever known about herself, yet she feels like she’s another woman when she’s with him. What kind of powerful bonds connect their souls?
