A Halloween treat from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Alyssa Day.

Now that Atlantis has finally risen to take its place on the world stage, the Atlantean warriors are having to face some new and interesting dangers -- like Halloween parties.

Arrogant warrior Liam doesn't understand the beautiful, bubbly human whose entire function in life appears to be to plan parties, but he can’t seem to keep away from her, either. Jamie, who considers herself to be completely unflappable--the hallmark of a great event planner--doesn't understand why the far-too-serious Atlantean manages to get under her skin with every single encounter. Even if he is the sexiest man she has ever seen.

When the two of them are thrown together to solve a mystery surrounding the queen's missing jewels, sparks fly, secrets are revealed, and Halloween has never been hotter.

This novelette (longer than a short story, shorter than a novella) is perfect for reading on a coffee break - or in between handing out candy to trick-or treaters.

I love any chance I get to return to Alyssa Day’s Atlantis universe, so even though it’s not Halloween, I couldn’t help myself.

There’s been a slight shift in her writing style. Her stories now are funnier, but less action-y(Is that a word? How about action-packed?). Her new style is very PNR Lite. This story has the same feel, and I think that it works for the shorter format.

Liam is one of the Atlantean warriors tasked to guard the palace for the upcoming Halloween party.

Jamie is the party planner who knows exactly where each jack o’lantern should go, but doesn’t know how to handle her attraction to the warrior who won’t stop glowering at everyone.

But there’s a small intrigue. Someone has stolen the princess’ crown, and with Liam’s family having a long history of being thieves, it makes him the prime suspect.

Jamie and Liam share some excitement, and some kisses, and even a sweet happily ever after.

I just love that there are 3 series running within the same world:

Warriors of Poseidon

Cardinal Witches

Tiger’s Eye Mystery

It’s a fun way to revisit the Warriors of Poseidon but with different adventures.
