The Greatest Villain by Sara Brookes

Halloween is always the time of year when I get to dig into my holiday decorations and pull out what had come to be my favorite decorations. If I had it my way, I’d leave some of it up all year long. See, a few years ago, Disney finally decided it was time their villains got their due. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a fan of the princesses and the romance writer in me always wants to see her get her happily ever after. But there’s just something about the villains…

But one stands out of the bunch for me, and that’s where my Halloween decorations come in. The very first time I read Sleeping Beauty, I found myself more interested in Maleficent than in Aurora. No one’s fault really, I’m more apt to be drawn toward tortured and lost souls. I always feel as if they have a more interesting story to tell. So, thanks to Disney’s expansion of their Villains line, most of my Halloween decorations have something to do with Maleficent.

What can I say? It ain’t just the bad boys that do it for me.
Tell me you if you have a favorite villain (doesn’t have to be Disney) and who it is. One lucky commenter will win a download of the winner’s choice of my backlist.
Good luck!

My favorite villain is ERIC NORTHMAN from the Sookie Stackhouse series/True Blood tv show. He's adorable and charming and dangerous :)

My favorite villain is "Hades" from Disney's Hercules. He's soooooo cocky and full of himself...you just love to hate him :) He's quirky too, which I love!

My fav villain is from Disney... Cruella DeVille. Love'd her theme song and the remake of the cartoon to movie. I think they picked the best actress to play her.

My favorite villain would have to be Dr. Hannibal Lector from the Silence of the Lambs and such. Even though he was a crazy, sick person, he was cool.

Definitely Maleficient. I tell my kids that I am the Mistress of All Evil and my daughter contstantly begs me to not do my mu-hahahahaha laugh in public. It's so hard to hold back...

We did Disney at Halloween last year and it was MAGNIFICIENT. Even the fireworks were villainous! :)
