About The Book

From the Some Like it Haunted collection

Legend says that at the witching hour creatures of darkness are at their most powerful. Gerald is about to find it’s more than legend.

Gerald Pickering is an actor with a traveling troupe whose next performance is in the lakeside town of Taupo. When he is purposely excluded from the organized accommodations, he has to find somewhere he can stay. When he’s given a card for another motel, he’s warned about the owner’s odd Goth grandson, but the motel is perfect—and even has a hot tub.

Gerald meets Jules and is immediately drawn to him, despite his unique style of dress and his youth. Soon Jules is helping Gerald with his rehearsals during the day and being his lover by night.

When Gerald finds that the company accounts aren’t balancing, he shares his concerns with a colleague who, like Gerald, is doubling their duties while the company owner is incapacitated. However, when Gerald is lured into an alley at the witching hour, Jules’ true nature is revealed.

Knowing the truth, will Gerald choose love, irrespective of the form in which it comes?

The Review

This is a short read but is packed with all the elements of a longer book!

Gerald Pickering facing the mystery surrounding the son of the hotel’s owner, combined with the issue of the discrepancies in the theater company accounts would be enough.  But Pelaam also throws in a jerk of a co-star, an undeniable draw to that son, Jules, and a mysterious benefactor that is awfully friendly with Jules and his mother. 

Somehow in these few pages, I was drawn into the story and was invested in the mysteries and the romance between Gerald and Jules.  Fans of true mate stories will love this book.  It is a great read when you need a quick break from the real world. 

The Reviewer

In writing this bio I am taking a rare break from reading! I always have a book on hand just in case there is time to sneak in a chapter or two. As a military spouse and a mom of two boys, it is amazing how often I am hurrying up to wait. Luckily for me I don’t have a favorite genre so I get lots of fun authors to choose from. My education was in sociology and mental health counseling, so stories with strong character development are my favorites. Happily Ever After is the best part of romance for me because real life is hard enough.
