Check out my review for: Love in the Time of the Dead (Dead Rapture Series #1)
Synopsis: Romance and zombies collide in the riveting sequel to Love in the Time of the Dead.Author Guest Post by Rumor Haven
Year four into the Dead outbreak that ended the world and Vanessa Summers has been so burned by love, she swears she will never trust a man again. But Sean Daniels, guard leader of Dead Run River, isn’t just any man. When past lovers return to the colony, things get complicated. Desperate to rid herself of the heartache, Vanessa signs up for a supply run that will test her mettle as a guard in training. Sean volunteers to lead her team, and his hungry looks say it’s more personal than professional.
Danger comes from all sides as they scavenge Dead infested cities, and as her attraction for Sean deepens, Vanessa finds her head and heart at war with each other. He clouds her judgment, and any misstep could spell disaster outside of the safety of colony gates.
A race back to Dead Run River could save a team mate’s life, but trouble has been brewing back home. Laney Landry, the woman who broke Sean’s heart, is in trouble, and Vanessa must decide whether to take back the Denver colony beside the man she’s falling in love with, or bow out of an attraction that terrifies her.
Weathering Dead hybrids, betrayals, battles, jealousy, and soul consuming love, Vanessa must find her place in the team she’s found. And if she can, she might just master survival at the end of days.
Zombies are taking over this month, and they ain't afraid of no ghosts...but if they had any brains, they would be!
Kate in my novel SEVEN FOR A SECRET is certainly afraid of her ghost--ninety-year-old Olive, who was arguably as creepy in life as she is in death. Kate hasn't lived in her new apartment at Camden Court long before she faces a pair of eyes in the mirror that aren't her own...
She doesn't know quite what she's dealing with until she befriends a couple of friendly old fogeys,Vera and Leo, who also live in the building and can confirm the ghost's identity as Olive. Olive lived in Kate's apartment for seventy years, and it seems she's not moving out any time soon...
I see Gloria Stuart (a.k.a., the old Rose in Titanic) as a suitable candidate to play Olive, but Camden Court is also haunted by the tragedy of another tortured soul--a young man named Lon. I polled a few readers to determine how they perceived Lonnie Ashby, and here are their choices:
Who do YOU think would play this male lead better: Tom Hiddleston, Ryan Gosling, or Leonardo DiCaprio? None of the above? Is there another soulmate you fancy, one you wouldn't mind seizing your heart and taking your breath away, the "monster" under your bed(covers) that would prey on your flesh and make you scream (its name) at night? *wink*

About the Author:
Born and raised in small town Texas, Tera Shanley grew up in books. Her cousin gifted her a signed copy of Beauty by Bill Wallace when she was young and that was it for her. So smitten was she with getting lost in a story, that while other eleven year olds her age were groaning at the accelerated reader program in school, she was racking up the points just for fun.
Balancing chronic book-wormyness is her devotion to the outdoors. Hunting, fishing, hiking, horseback riding, camping - her soul is happiest out of doors. And lucky for Tera, her family feels the same. She grew up a wild child helping her grandma ranch cattle, and has a hundred memories out in the wilderness which tend to influence her books.
When she's not eating chocolate, slinging rifles, or soaking up some sun, she's lost in a book, but these days it's more often one she's writing. From historic western romance, to paranormal romance, to apocalyptic (zombie) romance, the genre doesn't matter quite as much to her as the love story.
She currently lives with her husband and two young children, and is owned by two crazy mini-cujos.
