"The week before Halloween was a blur of activity for preparation of one of Crooked Fang's biggest nights."
This is the first line in Crooked Fang by Carrie Clevenger and it immediately made me wonder what Crooked Fang was and why Halloween was so important.. I won this autographed copy and a Sasha Bracelet from Synde at Cemetery Cat Designs from The Quillary. Wore the bracelet yesterday. I am a December baby and the blue Zircon is my birthstone. The stone on the bracelet matches the blue Zircon in my ring and I loved wearing both.
Here is the Goodreads summary:
"Sometimes a vampire's past can bite him in the ass.
Xan Marcelles--bassist for Crooked Fang, vampire and full-time asshole, is content with his quiet existence in the backwoods of Pinecliffe, Colorado. But life at the Pale Rider tavern is set to become a little more complicated when he gets entangled with a feisty, blue-haired damsel and her abusive soon-to-be ex boyfriend.
To add to his woes, he's gone from hunter to hunted, and his past returns to haunt him when a phone call draws him back to New Mexico. With the help of friends from his living past, he must get to the bottom of a murder, and figure out where he stands with his lover and his band, all while keeping one step ahead of his enemies. Hiding won't be easy for him, especially with a mysterious woman dogging him every step of the way.
