Check This Out - A Romantic Zombie Comedy: Chapter One

I have a TREAT for you today. I've been chatting with a REALLY cool author lately and after some ribbing and urging, he's (yep he's a guy!) relented to writing a romantic zombie comedy. He was given strict warning by yours truly to make sure he made the guy SEXY and that there were to be NO parts falling off (just in case, Scott's armed with velcro and duct tape) And the trooper he is, he's already written the first chapter and guys - it's GOOD! I love my romance with a strong sense of humor and I almost peed my pants reading it. The lead character is Terrance and the man is a ball of SNARKY goodness (Scott calls him a bastard... but ladies, we like snarky... cocky... arrogant better) The second I was done, I knew I needed to share. So I'll cut and paste the first bit and then follow through to Scott's site. He's also working on another story called Enura and he has samples - also VERY good. Enjoy!

The Crusty Englishman - Chapter One

“I cannot believe I agreed to this.” Tess gazed over the rolling hills. She pulled her blond hair aside and tied it with a blue ribbon matching her dress.

“Come now, mother. Is it really such a chore?” said Terrance. “A splash of wine and a quaint meal in the company of your dashing son.” As he set down the basket, his lace shirt hung open, exposing his muscular chest.

He opened the bottle, and spotted the garner below. “Oh no, not that fool again,” said Terrance. “You must get better at staffing the estate.”

The garner staggered over crops, chasing away the family dog.

“That’s your father’s business, not mine. Besides, what do you think is wrong with him?” Tess asked.

“Isn’t it clear? Without proper education, the mind is nothing but a rotten core.” He poured a glass of wine. “That mindless twit doesn’t have a lick of academics under him. Ask him to read a book, and watch him stare at it like a hairy arse; ask him to spell it, and watch him struggle to squeeze it out his back end.”

Is that really the cover!? LOL Too funny - Sometimes a raunchy romance is EXACTLY what the doctor ordered...I was introduced to this variety of books when I was just 16 working at a bank...and I still have such fond memoerires for the fantasy and escape the books provide. Great posts and love your background and designs!
