What do you do when the dead rise? What do you say to the love of your life when he comes back to you from the grave? How do you apologize for killing him? Jesse knows and he also knows that love never dies. (M/M)
The zombies have arrived, and Blaine needs to escape. He’d always thought of his London neighborhood as a place of safety, but then his infected neighbors tried to eat him. Blaine packed a bag and fled through growing numbers of shambling, voracious monsters–people, he had to remind himself, they’re people–toward his family in Bristol. He would surely have died without the turn of luck that brought him Commander Andrew Peterson. Together, they face the horrors and adversities of the apocalypse, trying to protect their loved ones, and—if they’re lucky—find love for themselves. (M/M)
One man, living alone, has survived the end of the world. An epidemic has swept the globe and turned its victims into undead cannibals. The walls of his rustic mountain cabin, which served as a welcomed retreat in his previous life, are slowly closing in. After eighteen months of survival and solitude, he feels isolation taking its toll. Intent on relieving his carnal urges before going completely mad, he travels to a nearby town, and finds a female companion with a few surprises of her own. (M/F)
Director Sam Raymond lacks the star power to work with living actresses—instead, the studio makes him stretch his rock-bottom budgets by casting the undead. By night, he labors at a screenplay for the actress he hopes to cast one day, the lovely Jessica Savage.
In cruel Hollywood, however, aging hopefuls sometimes arrange to die in order to have a chance of appearing in a casting call—what used to be called suicide has become a career move. Jessica succumbs to temptation and appears on Sam’s lot as part of a zombie “meat pile.”
Sam recognizes the dangerous intelligence in her eyes, but he can’t bring himself to shoot her. He’s determined to get the movie and the woman he wants, no matter what he has to risk in the process. (M/F)
Touched by Death – Anthology
by Ruth Black, Peter Tupper, Konrad Hartmann, Claryssa Berg, E.E. Grey, Annabeth Leong, Theda Black, Kailin Morgan, Luna Lawrence, Jane Potter and Ann Gimpel
An anthology of erotic encounters with death that balances sexy and horror in a way that makes readers squirm.
Unattainable love has always been one of the favorite themes of romance. Who could be more unattainable than the dead? Here are ten erotic tales of love and loss, terror and hope, and of course desires that cannot or perhaps should not be fulfilled. Here is the “little death” alongside the big Death. Here are people dying—and killing—for love.
Touched by Death is a erotic horror collection of stories filled with the living and the dying, the dead and the ones who come back. Within you’ll find attempts at reviving lost love, new views on courting death, and evidence that obsessive vampire stalkers are not always romantic—though zombies sometimes are.
Diana is fascinated by the stories about dead sailors who are said to enter the bodies of huge, black cormorants and visit the living in that guise. One night she is visited by one of the dead men–who has come borrow her warmth. (F/M)
Charlotte, the lone survivor of an undead apocalypse, finds a zombie that’s different from all the others. Is it courage or loneliness that makes her believe there is more there? (F/F/M)
