Operating room nurse Angie Preston is still feeling hurt and lonely after finding her boyfriend in bed with another woman and even though it’s been months, the death of his wife has left firefighter, Rob Hendricks, feeling just as alone. Neither is interested in getting involved again, but it doesn’t prevent them from being dragged to a Halloween party they didn’t want to attend. When they meet, sparks fly, leading to a night of passion they can’t forget. The question is whether it will lead to a lasting love.

At 29 pages, Trick or Treat is a fast-paced and fun holiday read showing that sometimes you can find love in unusual places when you least expect it. Angie and Rob are easy to like characters and their lonely lusted-based attraction is realistically portrayed, as is Angie’s reactions the next morning. I particularly liked how Ms. Vance developed Rob’s personality and the manner in which he went about looking for Angie.

The secondary characters are few - Angie’s friend and Rob’s brother - but they both play short-lived but vital parts. There are some sensual scenes but none that I’d call blistering hot. Read and enjoy!
