Welcome to Hillingham Hollow, the wholesome Texas suburb where romance abounds and real magic is rumored to be in the air.
It’s nearly Halloween in Hillingham Hollow, and Kaelin’s weekend of volunteering just went from potentially fun to passionately fraught, as she finds herself building a carnival booth with a sexy former classmate—and embarking on an emotional roller coaster as heart-pounding and dizzying as any fairground ride.
Book 1: A Kiss at Halloween
Come volunteer at the carnival, Kaelin, she said. It’ll be fun, she said…
When Kaelin’s friend Pauline suggests building a booth together for the upcoming Halloween carnival, Kaelin has doubts. Sounds like a lot more effort than Kaelin feels willing to expend these days. But then Pauline reminds her that, not only is the carnival part of her friend Joy’s big wedding celebration, it’s also for charity.
Kaelin caves, thinking at least the project might distract her from her usual worries—the ones about being a twenty-year-old still living at home with her parents, jobless, skill-less, and without any sense of direction in her life.
Then, at the last minute, Pauline skips out on the booth-building business, leaving Kaelin high and dry.
Worse yet, she leaves Kaelin paired with a different volunteer, altogether: Max Yang, the hot metalhead mechanic with whom she kinda-sorta used to flirt back in high school.
Sure, Max is a cool person and great to look at—and he might even be willing to spin Kaelin’s whole world around with a few passionate kisses over the weekend—but there’s no way he, a guy Kaelin hardly knows, and who’s so different from anyone else in her life, can hold the key to breaking her out of her rut. Or to unraveling her entire, bewildering future.

Welcome to Hillingham Hollow, Texas, the wholesome Houston suburb where romance abounds, and magic is rumored to be in the air…
Twenty-year-old Autumn Joy Alejandro is getting married.
Somehow, the former Hillingham Hollow High homecoming queen and recent Harvest Festival Pumpkin Princess has managed to land one of the world’s most eligible bachelors, twenty-eight-year-old Gothic rock singer Corvin Covarrubias. When the tall, dark, and extraordinarily handsome star escorts his new bride-to-be back to the suburbs for their highly publicized wedding, all of Hillingham Hollow is immediately entranced.
Autumn Joy is sweet and friendly, known for her almost angelic levels of kindness and generosity. Corvin is just the opposite, a worldly international celebrity with a dour image and devilish reputation, rumored to be a real-life vampire. The unusual pair captures the locals’ imaginations, and soon speculations about their alliance are swirling.
According to many hopeful Hillingham singles, the “marriage of light and darkness” taking place in the heart of their community will be a charmed event, guaranteeing every guest their own happily-ever-after.
Follow along as the weekend’s Halloween carnival extravaganza unfolds, and passion ignites throughout the ’burbs. Some couples will reunite after years apart, while others will meet for the very first time. All will be unexpectedly thrown together for one fun—possibly enchanted—wedding weekend, in which supernatural forces may or may not play a part, but romance is certain to manifest...
