When Amie Baptiste decides to try a love spell for herself, she wants the perfect man for her. That night he appears at her door. He gorgeous, and naked and until very recently, he was dead. It appears her perfect man died about 200 years ago. But Amie's not as convinced as Dante that a Happily Every After is meant for them, and he's not happy when she tries to send him back in his grave. Dante has three days to convince Amie to give a zombie a chance before its "ashes to ashes" for him. First of all, in case you were wondering, he is not a "gooey" zombie. Dante comes back all gorgeous and hot and without any "graveyard breath" since the first thing he does in lean in for a make-out session. If this was a common occurrence, more Zombies would be able to move up in the monster genre to leading man status. This was a nice little short-story, and a break from the usual paranormal vampire/werewolf hero. What makes this one stand out was the addition of Isoke, Amie's Kongamato (a mythical, pterodactyl-like creature). Isoke is so happy to see Amie dating (zombie or not) he keeps leaving her good luck presents, mostly dead rats. He is delightful and funny. Although I am usually disappointed by short stories, I found one to be cute and charming and a quick break for the usual fare.
