Darien comes home with a bag full of candy for trick or treaters, and a pumpkin, looking forward to Halloween and in a holiday mood. But he finds Chris nervously marking wards on all the windows. Is Chris telling the truth about the ghosts who will come if he doesn't get the warding finished, or is he just pulling Darien's leg? Darien's inclined to believe the latter, until the writing mysteriously appears on the bathroom mirror, telling him to beware.
Alternately tense and sexy, this is a very enjoyable little read. Nicely written, with a great spooky atmosphere, it made me jump. This is just the thing to curl up with for Halloween.
Chris is warding the house against ghosts? Huh? Darien's pretty sure Chris is pulling his leg, but his dignified lawyer lover seems awfully serious when he tells Darien that there's a history of ghosts in his family and he needs to ward the house before Samhain officially starts. His grandmother even calls to make sure he's doing it.
They're kidding, right?
When he finds out the truth, it's better, and sexier, than he could've imagined.
