Laney Landry has been fighting Deads alongside her brother and friends for three years. But she has a secret. She's immune to Dead bites and has to find the right people to trust with the information. Her team rallies around her to find a doctor who can extract a vaccine from Laney which could fight the virus that ended the world.

Sean Daniels leads a colony that provides her team with much needed shelter and supplies. He is obviously interested in Laney. The question is whether he's only intrigued by her as a source for the possible vaccine, or for something more. Tests for the cure might push her body beyond what it can endure, and just as she faces a ghost from her past, her longtime teammate Derek Mitchell hints at an interest in more than just her Dead slaying abilities.

Two honorable and alluring men - one colossal decision to make. Despite historically bad taste in men, can she rise above the chaos of the apocalypse and choose the one who deserves her heart? The right choice could mean the difference between surviving...and living.

I rated Love in the Time of the Dead with FIVE LEAVES! This was such a different read than I'm used to and I LOVED it for that. I was a little skeptical about reading a "zombie" story. I love zombies but wasn't sure how it could be made into a romantic book. I was very wrong. This book had just the right amount of action and the right amount of love to make it perfect! It's been a long time since I've finished reading a book and have actually been sad. I've been wishing all day long that I could keep reading Laney's story. The writing in the story was wonderful. With so much action, there has to be a lot of description and I did not want for anything in that department. I highly recommend this book for all of our FALLowers. I know I am definitely going to be checking out Tara Shanley's other books!  

Tera Shanley writes in sub-genres that stretch from Paranormal Romance, to Historic Western Romance, to Apocalyptic (zombie) Romance. The common theme? She loves love! A self-proclaimed bookworm, she was raised in small town Texas and could often be found decorating a table at the local library. She currently lives in Dallas with her husband and two young children and when she isn’t busy running around after her family, she’s writing a new story or devouring a good book. Any spare time is dedicated to chocolate licking, rifle slinging, friend hugging, and the great outdoors.
