I’ve written several Halloween stories over the past few years and participated in a couple of boxed sets. My favorite story so far is The Portrait of Dorian Clements. Set in Regency England, with a dash of Penny Dreadful, the story features a lonely widow who decides to have her portait painted by a traveling artist. Everything at first seems fine with the painting, but then things start to change…..

The quiet setting of the breakfast room had given way to the boudoir. Dorian’s demure décolletage replaced by a heaving bosom as the Earl of Somerset bent her backwards over his arm, drawing her into his embrace. But that wasn’t all. With his lips pressed to her breast and his breeches open, his one hand cupped her quim while his whore pipe tented his short drawers, seemingly so eager to finish what he’d started it might just pierce her through her petticoats. Imagining the public viewing the scene had her nearly faint. Instead, Dorian’s hand clutched her racing heart and she screamed.

Suddenly the meek socially acceptable widow sees her innermost desires acted out right on the canvas. What is a good upstanding citizen to do when faced with a handsome, sexually desirable incubus? Well, I’d tell you but it would give the ending of the story away!

Now, many of you know of the Oscar Wilde story the Picture of Dorian Gray. That too, was a painting but this time of a young man. In Penny Dreadful, the part of Dorian Gray was played by Reeve Carney.

Dorian stays beautiful, always young, and endlessly immortal while his soul remains trapped within the painting which becomes more twisted, aged, and corrupt as Dorian commits many crimes of passion – and otherwise – revealing his own inner demons.

The portrait of Dorian Clements on the other hand, has the ability to look perfectly normal when visitors come to call, and become utterly carnal when Dorian is alone, taunting her to commit the very deeds she secretly desires. Soon, she finds she can’t take more of this torture. What will she do to stop it?

For the last four hours after the guests has gone home, the painting had sat in her private chambers doing nothing – nothing at all. No Earl appeared. No naughty bits. It was as if the damn thing mocked her, making her question everything she’d thought she’d seen the night before. Making her feel like a cockish wench for the things she wished it would reveal. Irritated, she stomped her foot. “I should cut you to ribbons and toss you on the fire.” Spinning on her heel, she strode toward the bed. “In fact, I shall do just that upon rising. You’ll see.”

Find out what happens next, and why one should always be wary of a portrait done just in time for Halloween!

Incubus can’t keep his hands off 2 women in #Halloween #menage #shifter by @shilohsaddler

Having an incubus for a boss can present some real challenges. Especially when every night is a party night at the club! But this Halloween, it’s going to be different. Mr. hot and sexy steps out of his box and gets down and dirty on the desk with his employee and her shifter friend. Something tells me it won’t be the only time these three get together….

Here’s more about it:



Shifting Sensations by Shiloh Saddler

The Halloween bash at the Shifting Sensations nightclub is the paranormal event of the year. Incubus nightclub owner Ruger is on the prowl for two playmates to liven his evening — dare he allow one to be his employee?




The evening roared on autopilot until the shifter pole dancing competition. His mouth dropped open when Daniella climbed up on the stage and straddled that pole between her legs. He ran his fingers through his hair, eyes glued to her as she twirled and rocked showing off all her curves. Spinning up the pole she turned upside down her mane of blonde hair flowing. She was making love to that pole and he was jealous. Her dress rode up her thighs leaving little to the imagination. Underneath her dress she wore a G-string.

As the judge of the shifter pole dancing contest Daniella would win hands down. A wickedly fun idea crossed his mind. He hadn’t publicized what the prize would be. When the crowd roared at the end of her dance he no longer worried about being accused of favoritism. The whole club agreed that Daniella had won.

Breathing hard, her chest heaved as she left the stage. Hurrying up the steps, he almost grabbed her as he passed. There was no need for her to walk all the way down and then come up again. Though, he didn’t want to make a scene in front of everyone.  He was a very private man.

“Let’s give all the lovely ladies who danced for us a Halloween howl.” He cupped his hands around his mouth and howled along with all the patrons. “This year’s dance winner is not a werewolf.” This elicited some boos as he knew it would. “Daniella Stapleton, please come up the stage and take a bow.”

Daniella’s eyes widened and she placed a hand on her chest. “I won?”

“Yes.” He waved for her to come back up on stage.

She hurried to claim the spotlight, grinning. “I will award Miss Stapleton her prize privately as I accidentally left it in my office.” Some of the audience booed but he cared less. “Please give our winner another round of applause.” They clapped, cheered, and howled again. “Now that concludes tonight’s special entertainment. The Halloween party will continue till closing so please enjoy yourselves.”

Taking Daniella’s arm he escorted her off the stage. “I think that was the best performance we’ve ever had at the nightclub.”

She blushed. “Thank you.”

He led her to his office, unspelled the door, and allowed her to enter first. After she had seated herself in the large black office chair, he peeked his head out of the door and called for Aubrey.

Tonight could either go terribly wrong or terribly right.
