Description from the amazon:
The Undying Heart by Zoe Archer - Samuel Reed had no idea magic existed, until it almost destroyed him. Thirsting for vengeance against the enemy who made him something less than human, Sam returns to England and crosses paths with Cassandra Fielding. His best friend's little sister has become a fearless woman on a dangerous mission of her own. And against all odds, she sees past what he's become, and stirs a desire he thought he'd lost forever...

Amusing quote:
His mouth curved into a wry, but genuine, smile, "I prefer the term 'living dead.' Less ghoulish."
- location 483, chapter 2

My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): balance
Tiny touch of steampunk along with vodou zombies in this romance adventure story. The magic element portrayed the zombies in a less gruesome way. So the love scenes with the zombie lover wasn't a gross out.

This story ties in with Zoe's latest Blades of the Rose series which is...
Daring Victorian Adventurers who travel the globe to protest the world's magic.


Simon Says by Bianca D'Arc - Special Forces soldier Simon Blackwell ended his affair with Mariana Daniels three years ago, but he hasn't stopped protecting her. Mariana has no knowledge of the dark, deadly creatures that lurk in the forest surrounding her clinic, or of the mysterious powers that make Simon the only one who can defeat them. But soon he'll have no choice but to reveal the truth, and urge her to trust in an explosive passion that never faded.

My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): immune
Zombie mayhem action thrown into this romance involving a zombie hunter.

A dark ritual was performed by unexperienced voodoo cultist on the graveyard. When the earth began to shake and a zombie was raised from his grave the cultist ran away in fear. Zombie was left at the graveyard, haunted by spooky and dangerous ghosts. You need to help brainless hero get some brains, reach home… uh… grave and rest in peace! The game is a cool logical arcade thinker in zombie theme.
