Now a snippit into my other Halloween Story, Moonlight & Magic
Devon Falls 5: Moonlight & Magic

Paranormal Erotic ROmance/White Tiger Shifter
Dixie Sinclair has watched her cousins all fall in love and now she wants the same. Dared to go to the annual Masquerade ball, Dixie finds the one thing she desires: love…one problem…can she trust that it will last after that one night?
Michael Barnes is a rare white were-tiger who was thrown out of his pride long ago for a trumped up crime, Michael roams the world searching for the one place to call home. Finding that peace in Devon Falls, he finds the one woman who stirs him like no other. Can he convince Dixie that she can trust in him forever?
Still, Dixie didn’t know what to do except try to make the best of it. It was only two blocks. Surely she had enough will power to last that long.
Yeah, right. She knew she was doomed as the scent of him, all male and spicy, teased her
senses and had her swallowing hard. Oh god, I’m in deep trouble, she thought as they reached Main Street.
“You know you don’t have to walk me home. Damien is just being overprotective.”
She felt rather than saw the man next to her glance down at her and grin. “Nah, it’s okay. I was going to leave soon as well because my Sadie is home alone and I don’t like leaving her long.” The deep voice said as it sent shivers down her spine. It had a slight accent that she couldn’t place, and she wondered about the man next to her. Where did he come from, why was he here, and what was he like when the clothes came off? Then she heard the name Sadie. A terrible suspicion rose in her at the thought of this hot man having a lady at home waiting for him.
“She’s my dog. I found her when I was in Europe, tied up to a park bench with no collar and no water. It was like someone just dumped her off, but instead of letting her roam free or taking her to the pound, they tied her up and left her. It was terrible. Once I found her, she saved me from a solitude and loneliness that I never knew I had.”
Relief filled her up even as she tried to tell herself that she shouldn’t be jealous or anything.
She hardly knew this man. “Wow that sounds like a match made in heaven for you two. What kind is she?”
“She is a mutt—seems she is a little bit of everything, or so the vet said when I got her.”
Watching the way his face lit up in the moonlight had her heart turning over. The way he loved his pet called to her even as she tried to keep her distance from him. He was dangerous to her equilibrium, Dixie was certain of it. He kept her off-center, and it scared the hell out of her.
As her street loomed ahead of them, she stopped at the beginning of it and stuck her hand out. “Thanks for the escort, but since I’m almost home and nothing jumped out in front of me, I think I can handle getting to my house just fine.”
“Nope. I am to escort you to the house, not the street, Dixie,” the maddening man said as he looked at her with a smile on those luscious lips. Gritting her teeth, she tried to keep her frustration out of her face, but damn it all, she was old enough to walk home. It wasn’t like there was a crime wave in Devon Falls. Far from it.
Miffed, she stomped forward and tried not to hit the lug behind her. Of all the men in the
world, I had to have one with a streak of chivalry in him she thought as her house finally came in view.
Breathing a sigh of relief, she turned and ran smack dab into the broad, hard chest…the
chest her hands wanted to caress and explore among other parts of his body. A slight “oomph” came out of mouth as she looked up and felt herself drown under his gaze. It was like watching a movie in slow motion. She saw his face lean down and her one thought before those luscious lips settled on hers was Man, am I in trouble now.
