Trick or Treat

(Short Story)

Trick_or_Treat_400x600The memory of this party could haunt him forever…

Dragged along to a haunted house by his mates, Sam’s at the Halloween party from hell—the guy he fancied has turned out to be a bigot, and Sam has just outed himself to  his whole football team.

Escaping to the garden, he meets James, an enigmatic stranger with a mischievous smile, and the evening soon takes a turn for the better. The night may be chilly but the heat between Sam and James is hotter than Hades.

But James has a role to play in the evening’s ghostly entertainment, and it’s a story with a deadly ending. Unless Sam can change the script and stop history repeating itself, “till death do us part” will come sooner than he thinks.

Note: a version of this story was  first published in one of Torquere’s Scared Stiff Taste Test mini-anthologies. It’s been fully revised and re-edited, and is around 15-20% longer than the previously published version.

Sexing up ghosts, fights to the death, the inappropriate use of unsuspecting trees…it has so much going for it. Plus the book has a bit of a dark, but nice, twist at the end… Overall? Highly enjoyable – Carissa, Love Bytes Reviews

This book was adorable. I loved Sam’s foul mouth and attitude. James is a complete sweetheart… And I loved the wicked twist at the end – Leigh, MMGoodBookReviews

It’s a good read if you’re into quickies (no pun intended) – Lisa, The Novel Approach
