Masks, Mystery, and my Favorite Time of the Year...

"A man speaking in his own person will give you lies. But give him a mask, and you'll receive the truth."

I officially ask for Julian Assange's forgiveness for paraphrasing his thoughts, but the theme of those words is such a good one. Perhaps that's why so many people (this girl included) wish that Halloween came more than once a year. The ability to get lost, at least for a while, in an identity other than your's sexy, isn't it? Who would you want to be? What would you like to become? The possibilities become endless.

I'm so happy and grateful that in a huge sense, books grant us the wish-come-true of getting Halloween all year 'round. The portal lies in the pages of every book we open. The transportation is our own imagination, be it a Steampunk airship, a Venetian Gondola, a millionaire's limo, a cowboy's horse...the possibilities are limitless, just like the truth behind all of our sparkling masks.

As I prepared this post, it gave me the chance to reflect on a personal fascination with the subject of dual personality that gets granted through the magic of masks. I loved getting to explore it a bit during some key scenes in the first book of my W.I.L.D. Boys of Special Forces series, Saved By His Submissive

 I have to be honest: it was a real kick in the proverbial pants to take my two strapping alpha boy soldiers, Garrett Hawkins and Zeke Hayes, and turn them into a pair of urbane, world-weary billionaires for the sake of rescuing their women. I can't say much more without giving away spoilers, but if you'd like to win a free copy of the book, in electronic or print form, respond to this post. I'll pick the winner on Sunday, October 27th. 

Have a frightfully fun Halloween...exploring whatever sexy truths lie beneath your mask!

  3. Love hiding behind a mask, it gives you freedom for a night of mystery!

  4. Thanks for the giveaway. Gotta agree with you on the mask it leaves a person with a air of mystery. It could also make you feel a bit excited at the prospect of seeing what's underneath.


  5. oh man, I would love a copy of this book. If no one knew who I was, I probably would have been a little more risqué when I was in my younger days. I have always been the quiet one. Thanks for the giveaway. lacombejc at suddenlink dot net
