HIT & RUN HALLIE
a BODYGUARDS IN HEELS novella
by Angi Morgan
National Best Selling Author

It's hard to find the perfect someone when you have special 6th sense abilities. When Hallie Barton leaves the FBI after seeing danger in every New York City jogger, her grandmother encourages her to become a private detective in Dallas, Texas. Opening BODYGUARDS IN HEELS was a logical move to encourage the cousins to work together, but stay close so Grammy can find the perfect someone. If Hallie wasn't living her confusing life, she'd hardly believe it was happening to her. And Gage Owens...well, let's just say he's in for a heck of a ride. 

NIGHT OF THE JAGUAR
by Robin Perini
International Bestselling Author and RWA RITA finalist

Enter Robin Perini’s world of the Dark Guardians. His destiny is to destroy all things dark, soulless and evil as a member of the Order of the Jaguar. She has been infected with a virus that has changed her from human to something more…and her soul is at risk. Can a man born to kill her find a way to save her—or will he be forced into a choice that will destroy them both?

THE SCHOOL
by Ann Voss Peterson
RWA RITA Finalist

All the kids in Lake Loyal, Wisconsin know the abandoned school must be haunted. And when eight-year-old Josh disappears inside, the adults know it too...

Josh's mother, Rachel, will stop at nothing to get her son back. Even if that means going up against supernatural forces, a police chief named Val Ryker, and her sexy next door neighbor, Nate, who isn't what he appears to be…

SWITCHING HOUR
by Robyn Peterman
NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author

Deny, deny, deny. That was my new motto. Falling for the sexiest werewolf alive? Nope. Starting to care about the fur balls who needed my help? Nope. Wondering if there was more to life than next year’s Fashion Week? Nope. Nope. Nope.
Sadly no one seems to believe me.

If they think I’m the right witch, they’ve swallowed some bad brew.
ANGI’s QUICKIES
full moon or no moon?  Full moon
favorite super power? Super-sonic Speed
blood moon or blue moon? Blood moon

What shade of midnight is the HIT & RUN HALLIE?
ANGI:  Crayola INFRA-RED   
Without spoilers, can you share with readers your favorite scene in HIT & RUN HALLIE?
ANGI:  A scene without any dialogue between the hero and heroine. Hard to write, but my favorite.
What's your favorite MIDNIGHT experience?
ANGI:  camping in Logan, New Mexico. There had to be a gazillion stars.

ROBIN’s QUICKIES
full moon or no moon?  Full Moon - because there’s magic there.
favorite super power? Time Travel - mostly because I need at least 36 hours in a day to do everything I want to do.
blood moon or blue moon? Blood Moon – I’ve got vampires in my books, what else can I say?

What shade of midnight is the NIGHT OF THE JAGUAR?
ROBIN: My shade of midnight is jade – it’s an inspiring and uplifting color suggesting trust and confidentiality, and worldly wisdom and understanding. Unless you flip it on its head. In my world, you experience the magic and the mystery of the Maya...and the betrayal that led to its destruction.
Without spoilers, can you share with readers your favorite scene in NIGHT OF THE JAGUAR?
ROBIN: I think my favorite scene in Night of the Jaguar is early on in the story. My hero is doing what a hero does…he’s tracking a vampire. Okay…so it’s what paranormal heroes do. And just when he’s ready to the save the day…my heroine jumps in—and in a very unusual way. I love strong heroines, and Aiyana is one of my favorites. She is something special…but I can’t give away any more than that! Let’s just say it has to do with a Mayan temple, a jaguar and a stockbroker from 1920s New York.
What's your favorite MIDNIGHT experience?
ROBIN: I’m an early bird at heart…so I rarely see midnight, but I have one memory that was so “not me” I need to mention it. When I was in college, my friends and I attended a midnight showing of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. For those who don’t know about that experience, it’s something to behold. The audience participates in the movie; bubbles, flashlights, newspapers, bells, and popcorn are just a few of the props. Not to mention those who dress up as characters. And of course, we all did the Time Warp. I’m a homebody at heart, a bit of a bookworm (okay, a lot of a bookworm) but this was one of my most memorable evenings! I think we should all grab onto the unusual sometimes. I guess that’s what this paranormal anthology is about, isn’t it: a lot of the unusual! And 12 Shades of Fun!

ANN’s QUICKIES
full moon or no moon?  Full moon. There is little that is more magical.
favorite super power? I’d love to be able to step outside of time. Imagine all the extra reading and writing I could do!
blood moon or blue moon? A blood moon is amazing!

What shade of midnight is The SCHOOL?
ANN: Onyx. It’s black, yet smooth. The School has some scary elements to be sure, although it’s not bloody or gruesome.
Without spoilers, can you share with readers your favorite scene in THE SCHOOL?
ANN: Every scene that the little boy, Josh, is in. Especially at the end. But I can’t tell you without spoilers!
What's your favorite MIDNIGHT experience?
ANN: In college, my best buddy and I used to love going out to see live bands. Often we’d go at midnight, because the cover charges were cheaper (poor college students, you know), and yet we still had two hours of music to enjoy before bar time.


ROBYN 's QUICKIES
full moon or no moon?  Full Moon
favorite super power? Flying
blood moon or blue moon? Blood Moon

What shade of midnight is the SWITCHING HOUR?
ROBYN: Silver
Without spoilers, can you share with readers your favorite scene in SWITCHING HOUR?
ROBYN: When Zelda discovers her familiar is not really dead…even after she accidentally on purpose ran over him.
What's your favorite MIDNIGHT experience?
ROBYN: Getting to play with all the fun gals!

DARK SECRETS: STONE COLD DEAD
by Shea Berkley
National Award Finalist

Being a hero is Ryan di Taro’s job. Eradicating the city of vampires and other monsters that hide in the dark is how he got the title. When an unknown woman appears and saves his life and then disappears, he’s not sure if he’s made a friend or enemy. Should he accept her help in hunting down the undead, or is she part of an elaborate plan the creatures of darkness have created to end his quest to see evil eliminated for good.

MIDNIGHT RENEGADE
by Claire Cavanaugh
Golden Heart Finalist

In the first of the new SEAL Team Infinity Series, Navy SEAL Commander Alex “Ice Man” Winters vows to take down those responsible for killing half his team and turning him into a genetically-altered monster. Still, when an assassin strikes near his hideout, Alex can’t leave FBI Special Agent Samantha Gennaro to die…even if her missing father created the serum that altered his DNA. With only once chance to reclaim his humanity, Alex must trust her…even as betrayal stalks them from every turn.

A LOVELY DROP

NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author

SHEA’s QUICKIES
full moon or no moon? full
favorite super power? super strength
blood moon or blue moon? My story is pretty violent so I guess, Blood moon

What shade of midnight is STONE COLD DEAD?
Shea: Silver
We heard that all the stories include "Max Midnight." Without spoilers, can you give readers a hint of where he is in Dark Secrets: Stone Cold Dead?
Shea: Max Midnight is a really fun concept we came up with that we hope our readers will like. And even though the name isn’t used the same in ever book, we think hunting for it adds a little extra to the reading experience. Look for Max Midnight near the end of my story.
What circumstances or who inspired the hero for Dark Secrets: Stone Cold Dead?
Shea: Dark Secrets: Stone Cold Dead is the first in the Dark Secrets series. The hero is young and impulsive, and he drives his older brother crazy. He’s not based on anyone I know personally, but he’s a combination of every younger brother I’ve ever known.
What's your favorite MIDNIGHT experience?
Shea: Hands down, making out on a blanket under the stars. Best.

CLAIRE’S QUICKIES
full moon or no moon?  Full Moon. I have always loved the full moon, especially over the water. I remember watching the lunar landing and being in awe that we’d made it there.
favorite super power? Healing. There are people I would like to help with this power, and I wouldn’t mind a little of it for myself.
blood moon or blue moon?  Blood Moon. It’s such a cool, yet eerie, sight. It’s magical. I often wonder what cavemen thought of such phenomena.

What shade of midnight is MIDNIGHT RENEGADE?
CLAIRE:  My shade is indigo, a deep midnight blue that combines dark blue and violet. Indigo is the color of intuition, perception idealism and structure. Mental telepathy plays a big part in my novella and service to humanity, one of indigo’s strengths, is a core trait in both my hero and heroine. Devotion, wisdom, justice and integrity are all part of the meaning and those attracted to indigo will defend people’s rights to the end. The color is a critical element, especially in the hero’s story.
Without spoilers, can you share with readers your favorite scene in MIDNIGHT RENEGADE?
CLAIRE:  Hmmmm. My favorite has spoilers all through it. Actually, I have sections of two different scenes that I really like. One occurs at midnight and it’s the first time the hero lets himself hope for a better future with this crazy, wonderful, loving woman at his side. Believe me, he’s come a long way from Chapter One! That was not what he was thinking about her at all at the beginning! The second involves Samantha in a very poignant scene. She was supposed to be doing something else, then the story decided something different was going to happen. It worked out, but it’s funny when characters just take over and do their own thing.
What’s your favorite MIDNIGHT experience?

CLAIRE:  In 1989, I went to Peru to adopt my two children. At the time, the country was in upheaval and the revolutionary group, Sendero Luminoso, was terrorizing the entire country and blowing up all the electrical towers. (Among other things.) One night, around midnight, all the electricity went out in all of Limas and Comas, where I was staying with my sister, Joan, who was a missionary there. The two children awoke and didn't seem to want to sleep again. ’The day had been extraordinarily stressful and I think we all needed comfort at that stage. Joan told me to come outside. Curious, I followed her and gasped in amazement. I remember holding my infant daughter in my arms and looking up at a billion blazing stars. With no electric light to interfere, their brilliance was amazing. I had never seen anything like the magnificence of the sky that night and even the children seemed calmed by the view. The Southern Cross, a constellation I had never seen before, was huge in the night sky, as if to reassure us that everything would be all right. Miraculously, in the end, it was, and I cherish that very special memory of a beautiful night shared with people I loved.

DARYNDA's QUICKIES
full moon or no moon? Full! And preferably low on the horizon so it looms large in the distance. Heaven.
favorite super power? Indestructability
blood moon or blue moon? Blood. Of course.

What shade of midnight is the A LOVELY DROP?
DARYNDA: Sepia
Without spoilers, can you share with readers your favorite scene in A LOVELY DROP?
DARYNDA: Um, well, there’s a shower scene that's really fun. Yeah, I’ll go with that.
What's your favorite MIDNIGHT experience?
DARYNDA: My favorite midnight experience now is when my books drop and people pick up their kindles and their nooks and wait for it to download. I’m so grateful people are that excited to read something I wrote.

JENN’s QUICKIES
full moon or no moon?  No moon! Which is to say “New Moon” J
favorite super power? Ability to make time stand still
blood moon or blue moon? Blue Moon!

What shade of midnight is the GETTING WILDE?
JENN: Smoke
Without spoilers, can you share with readers your favorite scene in GETTIG WILDE?
JENN: Over the course of her adventure, Sara Wilde encounters the Devil himself—a member of the Arcanan Council. (For those who know Tarot, the Devil is the 15th card of the Major Arcana). Only this Devil is unlike anything she’s experienced, and he knows exactly how to push her buttons. 
What's your favorite MIDNIGHT experience?
JENN: On Midnight on New Year’s Eve, I have a fun celebration of all the dreams I have for the coming year. I make tiny ornaments representing these dreams out of paper to hang on my New Year’s Eve tree, and at midnight I take them off their branches and drop them into a small fire to release their energy. :) Reading this over, I realize… it’s possible I’m a little strange ;) .

NYT & USA Today Bestselling Author

They say things good and bad come in threes, and with the blood moon rising over Cauldron’s Hollow, Eloise Goodnight knew change was brewing. As one of the three Goodnight sisters, her destiny didn’t bode well. Love lost then death.

SPIRIT WOODS
by Trish McCallan
RWA RITA Finalist

When an old flame brings a stray golden retriever into Kaylea’s clinic she’s stunned by its physical resemblance to Max, her childhood companion. But when the dog recognizes her and know all the tricks she’d taught her Max, a chilling question arises—if this dog really is the beloved family pet she’d buried beneath Spirit Woods canopy seventeen years earlier, what else might be making its way home from the grave?
DAKOTA’s QUICKIES
full moon or no moon?  Um, both? wait, full moon. I’m old. It’s easier to see. J
favorite super power? Invisibility. Imagine the shoes I could own from Prada alone!
blood moon or blue moon? So many moons. Which color moon do you think would be easier to help you see where you’re going? Whichever that one is, that’s the one I choose. J

What shade of midnight is the WITCHED AT BIRTH?
DAKOTA: Oh, definitely hot pink.
Without spoilers, can you share with readers your favorite scene in WITCHED AT BIRTH?
DAKOTA: Definitely a scene with a Cabbage Patch doll named Icabod and a GPS system named Jaques.

DAKOTA: Sleeping. Because again, OLD here. LOL!

RACHEL's QUICKIES
full moon or no moon?  No moon – better for stargazing.
favorite super power? Being able to produce a meal with multiple side dishes/sauces where everything is done at the same time. I’m convinced this is a superpower that can only be achieved by making a deal with the devil.
blood moon or blue moon? Blood moon.

What shade of midnight is the MIDNIGHT SUN?
RACHEL: Burnt Sienna
Without spoilers, can you share with readers your favorite scene in MIDNIGHT SUN?
RACHEL:When Sienna and Rhys dance right before midnight at the Midnight Sun festival.
What's your favorite MIDNIGHT experience?
RACHEL: Ten years ago, a dear friend called me at around 11:00 pm and told me her labor had started. We knew her labor would be short (4th child), and she’d planned a home birth, so I raced to her house, arriving not long before the two midwives. I was actually in the (very large) bathtub with her, holding her shoulders through her last contractions. Right after the baby was born, I jumped out of the tub to get out of the way… and happened to check the clock and noted the time: 11:58. Because they were busy with mother and baby, the midwives didn’t note the time until several minutes later. If I hadn’t checked, the sweet little guy would’ve had the wrong birthday.

LILIANA's QUICKIES
full moon or no moon?  Definitely a full moon, otherwise I'd trip over my own feet in the dark.
favorite super power? Mind reading. I'm nosy (just part of being a writer), so it'd save a lot of guessing time to know what everyone is thinking.
blood moon or blue moon? Blood moon

What shade of midnight is THE WITCH NEXT DOOR?
LILIANA: Indigo
Without spoilers, can you share with readers your favorite scene in THE WITCH NEXT DOOR?
LILIANA: When they...umm...you know.
What's your favorite MIDNIGHT experience?

LILIANA: I'm usually working at midnight, but sometimes I'll get in the car in my pajamas and drive to town to grab a chocolate shake. Does that count?

TRISH’s QUICKIES
full moon or no moon?  Full Moon
favorite super power? Ability to Heal
blood moon or blue moon? Blue Moon

What shade of midnight is the SPIRIT WOODS?:
TRISH: Deep Vibrant Purple
Without spoilers, can you share with readers your favorite scene in SPIRIT WOODS?
TRISH: The bedside scene in the hospital where the hero and heroine admit their past mistakes and agree to start anew.
What's your favorite MIDNIGHT experience?

TRISH: That would be a night 10 years ago. Luna, my then five month old golden retriever puppy, woke me at midnight, or soon after, by frantically barking and pawing at me. When I awoke I found Bette, my eleven year old golden retriever, in anaphylactic shock . Luna woke me up early enough to administer the meds necessary to save Bette’s life.
