Lisa's Lair



Hi everyone!


It’s my favorite time of year, and if you’ve followed me for long, you probably already know about my Haunted Porch. It’s a big tradition around my place! πŸ˜€ Β 

I took a few pictures of my 2014 Haunted Porch to share…


I write paranormal romance for Entangled Publishing, the Night Series (vampires) and the Moon Series (werewolves) Here’s a little peek inside of Hunter’s Moon…



The wolf inside me growled, recognizing her as my mate and wanting more. Her lips were soft but not fragile. She was cautious but not resistant. Her body molded to mine. She returned my kiss, her lips parting, allowing me to taste her. I held her tighter, closer. God I couldn’t get close enough to this woman. Our tongues explored with an unspoken hunger, passion, need.

She spread her fingers wide against my chest, sliding her hand up until her fingertips brushed the skin along the base of my neck. Her touch sent lightning through my veins, my blood pumping until I was sure she could feel how much I wanted her.

And I didn’t care. She was my mate. Mine.

I claimed her lips over and over again, savoring the warmth of her mouth. She moaned into the kiss, and my gut tightened. I’d never wanted anyone like this before. Passion burned hot through my entire body as I crushed her against my chest, wishing we didn’t have clothes between us. My hand slid up her back, brushing over the bulge of her gun.

In an instant, reality slammed into me, and without any warning, Sasha broke the kiss and stepped back.

I raked my fingers through my hair, watching her, waiting. If she expected me to apologize she was going to be sorely disappointed.

I’d never be sorry for kissing her.


And because it’s Halloween… I have a scary Halloween short story to share! J

Happy Halloween!!!

  • I wish I had pics from our Halloween party on Friday to share Lisa. A couple we’re friends with were going to be coming as Jack and Sally from The Nightmare Before Christmas. Well, two days before the party they were trying on their costumes and getting their makeup planned when they decided to gender-swap it! We also had an amazing Lydia and Beetlejuice, and a Doc Brown and Marty McFly. I have some seriously talented friends but it’s so hard being the hostess and trying to take photos. I decided next year I’m going to designate someone as the photographer. πŸ˜‰

    • Oh Shoot! I’d LOVE to see those pics!!! I’m so glad your big party was a success!!! πŸ˜€

      Happy Halloween @RhiannaWalker:disqus !!! πŸ™‚

  • Great porch decorations! We go all out here too. This year I’m pulling out the coffin I have in my attic (cardboard) and filling it with a skeleton and candy. They have to reach inside to get the candy LOL!

    • Oh I wish I had a coffin!!! LOL That sounds bad! πŸ˜€

  • Joanna Moreno

    My dad used to decorate the yard every year when we were little but now that we’re all grown up he doesn’t do it anymore. But my sister goes all the way at her place for the nephews πŸ˜‰ Yours looks awesome. My scary stories are my nightmares. Some of them are just so out there. I could literally write books (if I was any good at it) or make movies out of them. They go from getting squashed by falling buildings to floods, to evil spirits to being chased to crazy ninjas. I guess I owe having a wild imagination to reading so many great books πŸ˜‰

    • I used to have crazy recurring nightmares as a kid… Yeek! But you know they never had crazy ninjas! LOL πŸ˜€

      Thanks for coming by @joannamoreno:disqus !!! Happy Halloween!!! πŸ™‚

  • Judy Cox
