Review Tour Sins of the Undead Patriot

Sins of the Undead Patriot

sinsoftheundeadpatriotTo save the President, Vaihan must trust the woman who betrayed him.

Vaihan Louchian, Ancient Zombie and Special Advisor to the President, dabbles in contracts for Homeland Security in Washington DC, the only remaining demilitarized zone. His latest mission: to seduce delectable Leera Waltz so he can take down her boyfriend Rowley, leader of the anti-zombie terrorist movement. Vaihan and the President work the Bill of Undead Rights through the Senate, but terrorist attacks rise. The futures of the living and undead are in jeopardy, and Ms. Waltz is not all she seems. Vaihan can’t help being more interested in rescuing her than in his assignment. Any human female who’s willing to put up with the complications of lovemaking with him and his bouts of OCD is worth the hassle.

Vaihan is powerful, intelligent and kind. So not what Leera expected of an undead. When she’s forced to betray Vaihan, she knows he will never understand. She must return to Rowley, and slips deeper into the city’s dark underworld. Then Vaihan’s suspected in an assassination attempt against the President, and Leera has to find the courage to do what’s right and save him, or lose not only Vaihan and the leader of the free world, but her heart and soul.

WARNING: Questionable sexual situations that will disturb some readers, such as abuse, bondage and drug use. Graphic violence and sex, including taboo play. M/F. M/F/M. M/M. And the sexiest undead civil servant you’ll ever meet.

Dot arrived with a tray. “When I explained to Aunty Bee that your date here had never had cobbler, she made me wait for a fresh one.” Removing the utensils, pie slices covered in ice-cream and cups of coffee items, she arranged them in front of them.

A man seated at the counter gaze travelled over Indy and then shot Tim a glare. He shook his head and looked away.

Her date? Tim made eye contact but didn’t correct the woman. Did it matter what other people thought? Perhaps it was a compliment that the women thought she could snag Dr. Tim Boyd.

“Enjoy,” Dot said.

“Thanks. We will.” Indy opened two packets of sweetener and emptied them into her black coffee. “There’s a technique to eating peach cobbler. You need to get the right ratio of crust, peach and ice-cream on the spoon.”

“And what’s the right ratio?” Tim asked.

“It’s different for everyone. I like to make sure part of my ice-cream has melted into the peaches and crust before I start. By the end, the melted ice-cream is filled with brown sugar, peach juices and a few rogue oats.”

“Do you mind doing a spoon up to give me an example?” He held out his utensil for her. “I’d hate to miss out on this experience.”

The idea was intriguing. Set up a blend of the tastes for him experience the time to pop his cherry, so to speak. She picked up his spoon, scooped a thin amount of crust, some peaches and ice-cream. When she lifted it and brought it forward, Tim opened his mouth and his full lips covered the spoon. His gaze locked with hers as she pulled the spoon out.

A broad smile spread across his lips and a thrill shot through to her toes. Tim was so freaking hot.
