Genre: Paranormal Erotica, Short Story, Vampire, Zombie, Ghost
Publisher: Decadent Publishing
Length: 24 pages
It’s Bonfire Night, but the fireworks in Estella’s boudoir are more impressive than any rocket or sparkler. She has more pressing things on her mind than trivial traditions like burning the Guy and crunching her canines on treacle toffee. A spot of unrequited love, and her little deady bear’s rotting body.
What better way to distract herself than to entertain you with a ghostly retelling of the infamous Guy Fawkes and the Fifth of November legend.
In York, England—new job, new life—Tansy finds herself both fascinated and scared by the haunted history this cobbled-street city has to offer. Determined not to let her fears chase her back to her small home town, she spends the night in the birth place of Guy Fawkes on the anniversary of his arrest. When she comes face to face with the spirit of Britain’s most notorious conspirer, he kisses her oh so scandalously. The ghost of his lover joins the interlude, and takes over Tansy’s body. Possessed by Marie, she is powerless to interrupt the passion exploding between them. Not that she’d want to. Pleasure abound, their story is unraveled…
…and it’s nothing like the history books depict.
4 of 5 Treacle and Treason
Treacle and Treason is a short Novella. I loved Novellas because they always pack a punch because there is so much information packed into such a small story. I will say that I was at a disadvantage when I read this because of a few things. First I was ignorant in not paying attention to the fact that this is book or novella number four. So I was a little lost with Estella and Lucy and their history. And Second and yes please don't kill me but I had never ever heard of Guy Fawkes. Oh God help me because as a reader and history lover I really should have heard about him some time.
So with all this ignorance on my part I read the novella and had no clue what it was really about so I went researching on the internet and HOLY GUY FAWKES there was so much info out there that I read some and went back and read the novella so I could get the full effect of the story and boy oh boy did I really get into it. I was able to enjoy it and I was able to see what it meant for Marie and Guy to have their one last night together. Plus Estella crushing on the bone cruncher well let's just say that I need more of the bone cruncher. I will also be reading the first three novellas so I can get the history between Lucy and Estella and see how their relationship started and where it is going.
All in all this is a great read! So go out and give it a go.
