Halloween Event Guest Author Carrie Ann Ryan!!!

Welcome Carrie Ann Ryan!!!

For our first month long Halloween Guest Author Event, I have with me bestselling romance author Carrie Ann Ryan!!! She's here with two characters from her newest book, Charmed Spirits. Matt and Jordan will be sharing some of their favorite parts of Halloween!

 Do you celebrate Halloween? If so, how? If not, would you like to?

Matt: I used to when I was younger, but because of a certain…incident…I haven’t wanted to. But it’s still fun to try and scare the kids if I can.
Jordan: *rolls eyes* Of course that would be fun to you. I don’t really celebrate like most people do because I’m a witch, but I still try and make the most of it.

What’s your favorite Halloween memory? If you don’t have one, how about a story about any supernatural encounters?

Matt: *grins at Jordan* Making out with Jordan when we were in high school and ripping off that Alice costume.
Jordan: *blushes* Really? You’re going to bring that up? I would have thought this Halloween would have been more memorable…but yeah, I did like that Alice costume. *blushes again*

What’s your favorite Halloween candy? If you’ve never had any, drive to 7-11 and buy some then answer.

Matt: Reece’s. I think I could eat that year round.
Jordan: *shudders* I hate peanut butter; I think that’s why he likes me. He gets all my Reece’s. 
Matt: *deadpans* Yes, it’s because you hate peanut butter. That’s why I love you.
Jordan: *rolls eyes* I’m a Kit Kat fan. Yum.

What’s your ideal Halloween costume? Like, if you could be anything for Halloween, what would you be?

Matt: Hmm…anything that’s easy to walk in so I can get Jordan naked quickly.
Jordan: Really? That’s your answer to anything. 
Matt: What? It’s been forever since we’ve been alone.
Jordan: It’s been like two hours. 
Matt: See? Forever.

Now onto the non Halloween related ones…

Who is your best friend (pets count)?

Matt: Jordan…or any of my brothers.
Jordan: Smooth. Well, since Matt was so sweet, Matt. But other than him, Abby. Though Allison is creeping up on me. 

Who do you love most?

Matt: Jordan
Jordan: Tyler. Sorry Matt, I love your brother.
Matt: *growls* You’re in big trouble, baby. I think I’m going to have to punish you when we get home.
Jordan: *blushes* You see why I said Ty? *winks*

If you could have anything in the world, what would it be?

Matt: I already have it. *kisses Jordan*
Jordan: Oh, he’s smooth. I think I’m getting to the place where I have everything I need, but if Abby and the other Coopers could be happy, I’d be even happier.

Thanks for sharing your muses with us today, Carrie Ann! They were so much fun!

Book blurb:

Charmed Spirits

Holiday, Montana Book 1

Jordan Cross has returned to Holiday, Montana after eleven long years to clear out her late aunt’s house, put it on the market, and figure out what she wants to do with the rest of her life. Soon, she finds herself facing the town that turned its back on her because she was different. Because being labeled a witch in a small town didn’t earn her many friends...especially when it wasn't a lie.

Matt Cooper has lived in Holiday his whole life. He's perfectly content being a bachelor alongside his four single brothers in a very small town. After all, the only woman he'd ever loved ran out on him without a goodbye. But now Jordan’s back and just as bewitching as ever. Can they rekindle their romance with a town set against them?

Warning: Contains an intelligent, sexy witch with an attitude and drop-dead gorgeous man who likes to work with his hands, holds a secret that might scare someone, and really, really, likes table tops for certain activities. Enough said.

Matt Cooper walked into the hardware store in a daze, his body going through the motions while his mind tumbled in an array of memories, anger, and longing.

She’s back.

Jordan Cross, his high school love and childhood best friend…back. She’d left without a word, leaving a mess of dashed possibilities and his broken heart in her wake. 

But, Jesus, she looked even better than before.

      Her green eyes seemed darker, more haunted or sorrowful, than before, like she’d fought more than she’d bargained for and was still losing. Her hair was longer now, very glossy sable locks falling to the middle of her back in careless waves. He’d had loved to run his fingers through it when they sat at the lakeside watching the sun set.

Yes, they’d been that clich├ęd in high school, but he’d loved her.


Past tense. Because he didn’t love her anymore. She’d left him. Left him with his problems, his everything and yet nothing.

Matt shook his head and went behind the counter, trying to ignore the dull pain in his temples. Darn witch, she shouldn’t be here. He didn’t want to think about her. Didn’t want to deal with it all over when she left again.

  10. LOL Love Matt's answers I'm a Reese's and a Kit Kat fan :).


  11. I enjoyed the interview.


  12. Why I love Alpha Males is no real surprise! The perfect Alpha Male for me could be a Vampire, a Scottish Laird, an English Rogue/Gentleman, a Werewolf or Shape-shifter, or a Knight. He’s the rogue who thinks he can’t be reformed into a gentleman. He’s the rough and scarred Scottish laird that has a heart of gold. He’s the werewolf or shape-shifter that needs to heal an aching heart because it took him years to find his true mate. He’s the vampire who has waited decades for that special someone’s blood to sing to him and wake him up. And he’s the knight who can defeat the enemy with a quick swing of his sword, but can’t see the love in front of his face. My Alpha Male has eyes that can see into your soul and are as blue as the sea, or as black as a storm. He’s tall and brooding. His heart can enfold you into its grasp and make you fall in love when he gives it to you freely and completely. He is protective and passionate. In the end he is the one that makes your heart jump and butterflies fly in your stomach, and still kiss you until your legs melt!
