TONIGHT, SHE PLANS TO LET GO.
Dressed up and anonymous, Sadie Liberato feels powerful, sexy and free. Where better to lose herself than a masked party?
Gear Blackstone’s cheating ex and scheming best friend have managed to spin his life into a serious downward spiral. At least with a mask on he can cut loose for one night. And cut loose he does—with the sexiest, snarkiest chick he’s ever met.
After a scorching-hot encounter, Sadie and Gear are desperate to find each other in real life. But can the heat last when the masks come off?
What People Are Saying:
“Anyone who loves a good romance will love this book!”—Night Owl Romance 5/5 Stars, Top Pick! for A Sure Thing
"Test Drive is high octane chemistry that keeps the pages turning and your engine revving!”—GINA L. MAXWELL New York Times & USA Today bestselling author
“Harte's take on the redeemed bad boy is fresh and sexy.”—Kirkus for Test Drive
Harte (Just the Thing) balances sweet and heat in a novel with all the trappings of a Christmas romance holiday decorations, cookie baking, and well-intentioned family ribbing that's set at Halloween. Sadie Liberato hopes to hook up at a posh costume party her brother is catering, and she succeeds with a devil who turns out to be scorchingly aggressive motorcycle shop owner Gear Blackstone. He's hiding from the press that have made his life hell ever since his former best friend and girlfriend screwed him over in front of cameras on a reality TV show. Harte's protagonists are full of fire when defending themselves or each other, and that bold energy extends to their mutual attraction and explosive sexual encounters, but their emotional relationship is warm and attentive, and the bulk of the plot's drama comes from external conflict rather than arguments or misunderstandings between the lovers. For readers who want romantic holiday cheer that's snarky rather than saccharine, and those who prefer their Halloween more harvest festival than horrorshow, this twist on seasonal storytelling will satisfy.

All I Want For Halloween
Steamy, fast paced stand-alone, with HEA. I can’t say anything more.
Great characters with fun personalities to make everything interesting. The storyline is seductive and entertaining. The reality show concept is especially intriguing because it confirms the suspicions that it is contrived all for ratings.
Love Sadie and Gear! They have been hurt in the past and that makes them cautious with plans to go slow but, their relationship goes from zero to sixty from the start. That's scary particularly for Sadie but, the are absolutely made for each other.
Marie Harte knows how to draw you in and get you invested in her characters. I recommend this Halloween treat as well as her other books. They are always a good time.
I received an ARC and I am leaving a voluntary review.
Awesome, Sexy & Fun!
If you’re looking for a fabulously fun, scorchingly hot read, snuggle up with All I Want For Halloween. Marie Harte consistently writes the pants off of her romantic comedies. I love them! I love the often outrageous characters, the heartwarming family dynamics, the snappy dialogue and witty banter, and most especially the sexy, sexy chemistry that inevitably results in my very favorite thing … steamy shenanigans between the sheets. Or against the wall. Yessss! There’s so much going on in this story that it’s like a big, fat Greek wedding! But the scenes are well-balanced and the writing is fab.
Motorcycle Madnezz has imploded and Gear Blackstone is trying to steer clear of all the reality show fallout and his crazy ex-fiance. Sadie Liberato just wants to bake cookies, cupcakes, and Halloween treats and let her siblings handle the customers and public relations for their bakery. Not too much to ask, right? Apparently, it is.
Sadie and Gear are an ideal match—they’re both introverts, value their privacy and alone time, are rough and growly, love working out at the gym, eating junk food, and punching people. They’ve both been burned, so while they are madly attracted to each other—how could they not be after that hot rendezvous behind the bamboo—they both fight it. Until they don’t. And then they do.
