New Orleans native Sophie LaCroix heads to NYC for a sexy Halloween party with her ‘bud,’ Paul Wilkins in tow. Both are theatre majors at the Yale Drama School, so once in costume, they’re different people. Not Sophie and Paul–but the seductive ‘Mississippi Gambler’ Colonel Bartholomew W. Davis and ‘Bourbon Street Madam’ Lady Tiffany.
What’s the story with The Colonel’s seductive ways? Is he just trying to rattle Sophie so much she breaks character? Looking to be ‘friends with benefits’? Or is there love in the air?
Add a sexy Catwoman and three naughty witches. Stir the cauldron and cast a spell.
‘Double, double, call me honey, lick my ____, and ___ my _____!’
Could it all be a trick that leads to a romantic treat?
Jane says: “I wrote this around the same time as ‘Just Another Day at the Beach.’ I was experimenting with stories rather than novellas and novels. I was also desperately missing autumn in the Northeast . . . and debating how brave I was going to be with my Halloween costume that year. . . . What did I decide? Shhh. That’s also a secret. But I had as much fun shocking people as I did writing the story!”
