Guest Blog: Gena Showalter & Jill Monroe


Today, we welcome authors, Gena Showalter and Jill Monroe.  They are promoting their new book, Dating the Undead: Loving the Immortal Man.

Authors: Gena Showalter & Jill Monroe
Publisher: Harlequin
Date of Publication: January 2012

This unique guide to dating the undead is formatted just like your favorite magazine… with a paranormal edge. “Dating the Undead” includes tips for dating an immortal, beauty secrets to look eternally fresh, fun quizzes, recipes (including some killer cocktails), tons of photos, and plenty of other fun (and sometimes humorous) articles. The magazine also features ghoulish ads for brands like Coffin Klein, Vladimir’s Secret, G’Oréal, Rot Pockets, Jimmy Chew, Got Bludd?, and many others. Haven’t heard of these brands? Maybe your undead friends have.

“Dating the Undead” also features an exclusive excerpt from “The Darkest Seduction,” the first novel in Gena Showalter’s “Lord of the Underworld” series

My Thoughts:
I thought this guide was really neat.  Any fan of paranormal romance will want this volume in their collection. It reads just like your favorite woman's magazine without the subscription cards and perfume samples (Thank the gods!).  It's filled with advice on how to handle your undead lover or spouse.  It has fun fashion and beauty tips, a love quiz, and tons of photos of very drool worthy male beings.  I got a kick out of the ads that are littered throughout the book. Who wouldn't want to decorate their house with items from Cave and Coffin?   Gena and Jill have put together a really fun and informative book.  Definitely check it out or consider giving it as a gift to a friend who loves the paranormal!

Gena and Jill stopped by to share some romantic words of wisdom with us:

Admit it.  We’ve all craved a fling with an undead bad boy at some point or another.  And really, the undead have craved a fling with us LG’s (Living Girls)!  So, just how does a sexy vampire … or growl-worthy werewolf … or a naughty demon … or a video-game loving zombie … or a virtuous angel … or a smoking dragon shifter hook up with an LG?  We say: by using your mouth! (No, not THAT way).

Here are “The Hottest” ten phrases/words you can say to any immortal:

1.  You, me … bed?
2.  Let’s get naked!
3.  Please
4.  Mmmmm…
5.  I’ve never wanted you more.
6.  NOW!
7.  Liiiick (You’ll need to act this one out!)
8.  Taste me…
9.  I’m such a dirty girl…
10. Oh, baby…YES! (What undead or mortal doesn't want to hear this word after taking off his shirt—OR PANTS!?)
 ,
And just in case that hottie immortal in your life is peeking over your shoulder, reading (and agreeing with) this list, here are a few things he can say to you:

1.  You’ve never looked thinner.
2.  Oh, honey, let me do that.
3.  Saw this, thought of you, and knew I had to buy it.
4.  I'll cook.
5.  You're right!

Because these hot words and phrases are sure to garner a little action between the sheets, be sure to check out Lotions and Potions and Scrubs - Oh, My! on page 24 of Dating The Undead for the latest techniques to Unzombifying (it's not what you're thinking!) and keeping your skin monstrously soft.
