In the Pacific Northwest, where life hurries to keep pace with technology, a re-animated bride named Josie struggles to escape her creator and to find her identity in the half-erased circuitry of her mind and body.

Assassin Bane Connor just wants to get the girl to the Zombie Underground and receive his payoff-a mental reset that will erase his memories as well as his guilt. But an attack by a rival faction derails his rescue, and the wide-eyed female whose circuitry requires a husband tears at his hardened heart and ignites desire like he's never known.

Acting as Josie's spouse-substitute is tougher than Bane expected. The newborn stein needs touch to live, and wanting her is a complication he doesn't need. To make matters worse, she sees into the darkest recesses of his mind. The last thing a killer wants is for his lover to read his thoughts, but if Josie can love him the way he's programmed, perhaps Bane can find a way to heal his past.

These reanimated corpse zombies are a different type of zombie that do not go for brains and chunks of human flesh. Instead they are sexy-looking zombies in lust-love. Enjoyable read of mad scientists, love zombie dolls and mind links.

As the weather cools down, what I want from my reading is heat, passion and revenge. Lust After Death is an erotic science fiction with sexy zombies, not the grotesque oozing kind. Josie and Bane as reanimated corpses bring life to their new found passion as Bane rediscovers desire as he meets the intimacy needs of Josie. The delicate relationship and tenderness make it easy to love their chemistry and eager to read the orgasmic lines. I'm expanding my reading in erotica and this book is a great introduction. I love the fast-pace, quick read, and humor as the relationship unfolds, stumbles and rolls in the hay. In terms of sex, erotic hotness abounds as Lust After Dead shows vamps aren't the only sex machines in an undead bed. Studenstein, book two in the Love-Bot series, come out September 16 and the waiting will keep yours and my pallets wet for another read. Reviewed by Rosa for Book Sake.

Josie is a fledgling zombie, created by, yes, a mad scientist named Adam, to respond to physical contact and be his new bride. Assasin Bane Connor, also a zombie, is on a mission to rescue Josie from her creator and bring her to Zombie Underworld, a safe haven for steins (zombies) that helps them lead a normal life. This last mission means a new start for Bane who is to undergo a procedure that will reset his memories and erase his old ones, in the hopes of leaving his dark past behind. What Bane never planned on was falling for the "zombie bride" he was charged with protecting and after spending time with Josie he begins to question if in erasing his past he risks robbing himself of a future of happiness. I'm pretty new to the world of zombies in books but this one took my by surprise and delivered! The world Ms. Harris has created is a little sci-fi mixed with paranormal and zombies have never been hotter. Josie is a fun protagonist that captures you with her sugar and spice personality and innocence. Bane is the strong, alpha hero that has a soft spot and makes you forget he is also "undead." The relationship between the two characters is speedy but sweet and the intimacy they have goes beyond the sexual which made their romance even hotter! Lust After Death is a fun and sexy read. The main characters are well developed for a novella and are very engaging. While there's an element of suspense, the story line focuses more on the main characters and their developing relationship rather than on their paranormal world. If you're looking for brain eating, slow moving zombies with missing body parts you won't find them here, steins are not that different from humans and are reanimated corpses not mindless beings digging themselves out of graveyards in search of food. Fan of zombies or not, Daisy Harris has written a sexy paranormal coupling in Josie and Bane that will have you seeing zombies in a totally new light and craving more...brains...errr, I mean stories!

Daisy! Daisy! Daisy! You have cured me of thinking Zombies were all evil sickening creatures - LOL I am so glad I got over my fear of reading about Zombies because I would of never got to read this great book. You have created and invented a new type of Zombie World, a Zombie Unground World were science has gone above and beyond technology of bringing back the dead. Worlds where a scientist takes a dead body, rewires it, and puts in a computer chip with a new memory in its brain to bring it back to life. However, there are many scientist in the world that are not part of the Zombie Underground World and have their own agenda's like when some scientist go too far and start programing and creating their own wives/slaves for their own pleasure or killing unnecessary humans for their gain and that's how this story starts out. I absolutely loved it! It was exciting, fast paced, humorous, and I couldn't put it down. Let me tell you the romance between Bane and Josie's characters had the perfect chemistry, so cute that it made me smile and laugh out loud and their erotic love scenes were scorching hot, I literally had to cross my legs at some scenes as I felt the heat rush through my body. Wow, those were some awesome scenes. I totally love the telepathy connection Bane and Josie had as they sent visions and thoughts to each other. A Telepathy that could be very controlling - too bad we don't have that in real life - LOL The ending was perfect with its happy ever after and had me smiling, saying AWE, and hugging my e-reader ( I said E-READER, not Vibrator - LOL). I can't wait to dive into the next book in this series "Studenstein".

Lust After Death is a novella written by Daisy Harris and is pumped full of action and sex. Josie and Bane are electric. Their encounters are full of sexual tension in the first few acquaintances and then it becomes very lusty. Josie is a strong character and is a great match for Bane. She doesn't let him push her around. Bane's softer side comes out when he is around Josie. He is a protector first and a terminator second. I like their union and think they make for an undead couple. Now, one character I can't stand is Anna. She just oozed 'hate me' pheromones. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this short and refreshing read. This is the first time where I have read anything that has the main characters being zombies. Quite a different read for me but enjoyable. Disclaimer: I was sent this e-book as part of a tour by The Bookish Snob Promotions. I have not been paid to review this book and everything I have said is of my own honest opinion.
