Wyn may be a Goddess, but even she is a little confused by the rumours of ghosts in her palace.
It gets even stranger when one of them appears in her bedroom, begging for forgiveness. For wha? Wyn has no idea.
Can she solve the ghost crisis before it ruins the Samhain celebrations?
And will she find a moment to spend time with her four yummy Guardians?
A Daughter of Winter spin-off that can be read without previous knowledge of this bestselling reverse harem series. However, if you’d like to read the complete series first, start with Winter Princess or get the box set.
I frequently start a series from the end, but this is a novella that is short and addicting.
Wyn is Queen of Winter and also a Goddess. She is carrying out a tradition of the Samhain Ball, but the dress her seamstress made for her is a bit over the top fluffy for her tastes. Although her men, her guardians seem to like it.
This is a favorite scene.
“You look beautiful, Wyn,” Crispin says with a wide smile. “The orange really suits you.”
I grimace. “It makes me look like a pumpkin,” I reply. “An oversized, frilly pumpkin.”
Frost laughs. “A cute pumpkin though. Never seen a pumpkin this cute.”
“Could we stop talking aboot pumpkins? It’s making me hungry,” Arc complains in his broad Scottish accent. He’s sprawled out on the bed, his kilt has shifted upwards and I can almost see underneath it. Almost. It’s very tempting to take a closer look.
“Well, it’s at least another hour until we can eat,” I tell him, frowning at myself in the mirror. This dress is an abomination. I’m not going to wear it to the ball, no way in hell. This may be the end of my already frayed relationship with the head seamstress, but this isn’t a costume party. I’m not supposed to look like a vegetable.
“Maybe you should take it off,” Frost suggests with a wolfish grin. “We could even help you.”
I sigh in exasperation. “I appreciate it, but we really need to get going. They’re waiting for me.”
“You’re the Queen. Keep them waiting,” Storm says lazily, leaning against the wall, his formal uniform hugging his perfect body.
Skye MacKinnon. Samhain Goddess (Daughter of Winter, #5) (Kindle Locations 40-50). Peryton Press.
Saved from wearing an embarrassing gown by her head of household and best friend Tamara, Wyn enters the ball.
Dewi, the Goddess of Autumn, saw a ghost on her way to the ball, and when Wyn goes to prepare to deal with it, one appears in her bedroom. An interesting situation since her guards had something else in mind.
A fun, sexy romp, with the added plus of helping the ghosts.
I now have to read this series from the beginning, I am hooked.
