Halloween Music

Halloween is Almost Here!

There are a ton of fantastic songs out there that you can play at any Halloween party, depending on your taste and style, but here are my TOP 5 SONGS FOR HALLOWEEN

 1. Thriller by Michael Jackson. There can’t be a list without having that song on it. 

2. Ghostbusters by Ray Parker Jr. from the Ghostbusters soundtrack. This song is so much fun. I love the original movie. 

3. Love Song for a Vampire by Annie Lennox. This song is from the movie Bram Stoker’s Dracula. 

4. Cry Little Sister by Gerard McMann—or any other song from the Lost Boy’s soundtrack. Still one of my favorite vampire movies of all time. 

5. Burn by the Cure. This is an amazing song from The Crow soundtrack. 

Do you have any favorite Halloween songs? 

And in keeping with Halloween, if you’re looking for some sexy vampires, you might want to check out the Dalakis Passion vampire series.


Dalakis Passion Series

The Dalakis brothers are unlike most men. They are vampires. Each one has searched through the long years for that one woman who can complete him. As the centuries pass, hope dwindles but doesn’t die. Finally the time comes for each brother to claim his woman. But danger is everywhere and there are enemies who wish to destroy them. Protecting a modern woman isn’t easy, but there is nothing these brothers won’t do to keep their chosen one safe.

Dalakis men love forever—deep, dark and eternal. The search for love is their curse, but it is also their salvation.

The Marks Mercenaries Series

Flynn’s Assassin is the final book in the Marks Mercenaries series. I’ve loved writing about the Marks family. They’ve been with me for quite a few years. I wrote the first book back in 2014. But a publisher closer meant the rest of the series never got written. I couldn’t stop thinking about this amazing family and wrote the rest of the books. I’m thrilled that the entire series has finally been published.

If you love sexy space mercenaries, you’ll love the Marks family.


Flynn’s Assassin 
Marks Mercenaries, Book 5

When mercenary and space trader Flynn Marks is approached by a woman in a seedy bar, he assumes she’s not just looking for a good time. He’s made enemies over the course of his life. With his family finally safe and settled, he’ll handle this latest threat on his own.

Cerena Phelps has been tasked with killing a man if she ever wants to see her teenage son again. While she’s no stranger to fights—being a woman bouncer is a tough job—she’s never killed a man. Her plan? Lure Flynn away from the bar, seduce him, and kill him when his guard is down. Not a hardship given her unexpected and intense sexual attraction for her target. When her attempt on Flynn’s life fails, they must learn to trust each other if they both hope to survive and rescue her son.

TEASER:

“I tried to kill you,” she all but shouted.

He couldn’t help himself; he grinned. Her lips thinned, and her entire body all but vibrated against him.

“You think that’s funny?” she demanded.

“Little bit.”

“You are out of your mind. You know that, don’t you?”

“You act like you’re the first woman who’s tried to kill me.” She felt so damn good against him. He liked arguing with her almost as much as he liked having sex. She was strong-willed and determined, wouldn’t be intimidated by him. That was sexy as hell.

“Why am I not surprised to hear that?”

MY FAVORITE SEASON




It's my favorite time of year again; the Halloween season is upon us. Stores have begun to fill their shelves with spooky, creative delights for the holiday. Die hards (like me) have started to decorate their homes and plan their costumes. If it's still too early for you because the weather is in the 90s (like in SoCal) or you don't do holidays until the month of, here are some fun ideas to get the wheels spinning...

Easy to do with dead branches and cheap crows from the Dollar Tree store.


Full-size skeletons can be purchased at any hobby store or Spirit Halloween.



Mantles and fireplaces make a great Halloween showplace. A large skeleton can be easily found at any hobby shop and spray painted black. Buy some cheap fake pumpkins and skulls at a Dollar Tree store and paint them whatever color you'd like. Black lace spider runners can be found at wish.com for a few dollars, and black branches are at Target again this year.    



Seriously, how creative is this?!



And this?! Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice...

These costumes were probably purchased, but they can also be made at home using removable lettering. The pink satin jackets may not already be in your closet, so search thrift shops for one.


Face paint and a flower is all you need for this classy Day of the Dead couple's costume.


Some great ideas, no? Leave a comment and tell me about your favorite part of Halloween.

And I have some good news: ORIGINS, the third book in my urban fantasy vampire series, the Tranquilli Bloodline, releases soon -- September 2019, people, woot woot! I have some spiffy new covers for all three books in the series, thanks to graphic designer Melody A. Pond, and you, Decadent Diva readers, along with my blog followers, are the first to see them.

Summer Movies and more...

The weather has not been good where I live this summer. It’s been cool with a lot of foggy and damp days. I’ve still managed to find pockets of time to get out and enjoy the sunshine when it does show.

And when it’s rainy, I enjoy the movies. I’ve seen some great ones this summer. Here are a few of them: 

1. The Lion King—Amazing remake.



2. Hobbs and Shaw—So much fun and action. 

3. Yesterday—A quieter movie. Great music and an overall wonderful story. 

4. Spiderman: Far From Home—It’s everything you want and expect from a Spiderman movie. 

5. Aladdin—Even better than I anticipated. I loved it. 


6. Rocketman—Biopic of Elton John. Unflinching and honest. And great music. 

7. The Secret Life of Pets 2—A great family movie. 

8. Shaft—Three generations of Shaft men. Definitely fun and filled with action. 







If you love space mercenaries, you’ll love the Marks Mercenaries. These brothers are tough and focused. Their goal—finding their sister who was abducted years ago.

The first four books in the series have been released—Rescuing Rory, Unexpected Angel, Liberating Lacey, and Salvaging Abby.




Here’s a tease from Liberating Lacey, book 3.


Teaser: 


“What happened this afternoon? Did security find you after?”


He was stunned by her genuine distress. No one, other than his brothers, had ever shown the tiniest bit of concern over his well-being. Because of his physical size and level-headedness, even his parents had stopped worrying about him by the time he was twelve, assuming he could take care of himself. 


Letting his blaster hang by its shoulder strap, he cupped her face in his hands. “I’m fine.” He kept his voice low, barely a whisper. The last thing he wanted was to be discovered with Lacey. “You?”


She’d taken the bigger risk. 

She shrugged. “They’re used to me being odd, so there was no problem.” There was an underlying thread of acceptance, as well as an echo of old hurt in her words. 


He forced himself to ignore it. It was time to get down to business.
But he, the man who never lost focus during a mission, got distracted by a pair of seeking green eyes, a pert nose, and a set of lush lips. 


Silently cursing himself a fool, he leaned down and pressed his mouth against hers. After this afternoon, he expected her to push him away, maybe even slap him. Hell, she could call for security if she wanted. 


That cooled his ardor. But before he could pull back, Lacey went up on her toes and kissed him back. She was a space siren, an apparition brought on by too many months in deep space. If he weren’t careful, she’d lure him to his death. 


But what a way to go.



Liberating Lacey 
Marks Mercenaries, Book 3 

Garth Marks and his brothers are space mercenaries and traders. Their life’s mission is to find their younger sister, who was kidnapped ten years before. Their search has led them to Eden, a planet that is home to a cult-like group. 


Lacey Freshlan wants to get away from Eden, and the strangers who have come here might be her ticket out. Garth is willing to use the sizzling attraction between them to get information from her, but he won’t agree to take her with him. As much as he’s drawn to her, Garth won’t risk the safety of his family. 


When Lacey foils a plot to poison them, Garth takes her with them when they flee. But they are not free yet. Betrayal and lies lead to a battle not only for their safety but also for their hearts.

Main Diagnoses in a nutshell by Jennifer Kacey

I have a lot of medical stuff to keep straight. Last time I counted I was up to something awful like 42 individual diagnoses.
All of these issues stem from my main 6 diagnoses. I put a shorty video together talking about the big 6. So here is me in a nutshell!! :)
