Willow adjusted her tall black hat. Looking out the window at the full harvest moon, she lit a candle whispering, “Come to me.”

The lights flickered.

“Who goes there?”

The rustling of satin and the sound of slow heavy footsteps made her turn.

He stepped out of the shadows, black cape drawn over his right shoulder.

“My Count. You answered my incantation.”

His eyes mesmerized her.

“Come to me now, my amorous witch.”

Feeling his magnetism, Willow closed her eyes. He wrapped his long arms around her waist. She leaned back exposing her neck to his longings. He dug his teeth deep into her pearl white neck like he would never let go.

Willow giggled. “Dan, stop. We’ll be late for the Stone’s party.”

Blurb for The Love Gypsy :
Florida homicide detective Brianna Breeze can't seem to catch a man unless she handcuffs him. So her best friend decides to take matters into her own hands and tricks Brianna into seeing the Love Gypsy, a time traveler's friend noted for her extraordinary matchmaking skills.

When a tall, muscular man wearing jeans, a black leather jacket, and slicked-back 50s hair bursts in on her first visit, Brianna is bewitched. Despite the gypsy's warning not to get involved with him, Brianna can't get him out of her mind—even though she, more than anyone, knows the pitfalls of romancing a stranger.

A present-day murder, a mysterious vintage car registered in the distant past, and a smoking gun complicate the puzzle. Brianna doesn't know if her lover from the past is a murderer or a savior, but she's willing to risk time travel to find out.

About the Author:
Writing in paradise! What could be better than that? A native of Montclair, N.J., I graduated from The Montclair Kimberley Academy and Syracuse University with a degree in English Education. While at Syracuse, I served as Vice Chairman of The Student Union. After graduation, I married my college sweetheart and taught junior high school English for a few years. I then worked for a daily newspaper as a proof reader in the newsroom. We decided to move to Florida while we were young enough to enjoy all the beaches had to offer. When we discovered Ft. Myers Beach, Estero Island, with its seven miles of white sand beaches and blue green Gulf waters, we knew it would be our home.

Very intriguing blurb, sounds like a great story.
I would rather travel to the past, especially the wild west, really fascinating time, but I would like to be able to come back after a time rather addicted to running water and electricity!

I would go to the future and find out the lottery numbers or what stocks are doing really well. Lame I know, but I'm really broke. :p

Sorry I took so long but I had to wait for my dog Max, a true canine magician, to put on his black satin cape and focus on his job at hand in anticipation of selecting a winner. I printed the comments, cut them into strips, and placed them in front of him on the floor. He moved his fuzzy paw slowly placing it down on Sue B's. Congratulations Sue! I'd like to thank everyone who posted a comment and Karen for making this Halloween fun for her readers and for those of us who participated!
