Six months since the zombie plague struck, former librarian Roslyn Stewart has been holed up in a school with eight other survivors. But now the shelves in the school canteen are bare. The stranger at the gate has supplies that will ensure the group's ongoing survival, but at a cost. He wants a woman. Winner of the ARRA 2013 Favourite Erotic Romance Award
Nick is a man with a plan. He'll treat Roslyn like a Queen, devoting the rest of his life to protecting and providing for her. In exchange, of course, for sexual favours. It's the deal of the century given the state of the world. But Roslyn doesn't see it that way. The first chance she gets she attacks the ex-army man and attempts to escape, forcing Nick to contain her. And so begins his awkward courtship of the woman, with her chained to the bed for security reasons.
Chained like a dog and forced to spend her every waking moment with a creep, albeit a good looking one, Ros is determined to escape. When circumstances force them to band together against a common enemy their very survival depends on their ability to learn to trust each other. An uneasy partnership develops, but can a relationship with such a difficult beginning ever have a future?
The hotly anticipated sequel to Flesh, Skin is set in the same universe with a different set of characters.
This story is rated "Hot" (4 out of 5 flames) and contains F/M pairings.
I love this author's version of the zombie plague. The love stories make sense cause the world is shattered and everyone is just trying to survive.
This story is a great example. Nick has a strange way of saving Ros, but his his brand of logic is well explained by the author and makes for a great, sexy story with lots of angst. The sex scenes are hot and tender. The dialogue is funny. The characters are endearing. Even the zombies seem human (or ex-human, whatever). Not gory.
Pretty interesting, lots of twist and turns. Loved how the two main characters fell for each other. Sweet.
Another good one!
At the end of Flesh, I was left wanting to know more about the characters, wanting to know who's baby she carried, how life would end up etc. I naturally immediately read Skin, for that follow up. Instead I got to fall in love with new characters! Immediately drawn to both of them, though you'd think I'd hate Nick right? There relationship was so odd and his way of thinking so cute (yeah I'm odd). I'm always a sucker for an alpha male and the book didn't disappoint. I love the fear the book projects as characters fight for their lives with many lives lost along the way. Love is a powerful motivator and sex is a hell-of-a-thing. Great book as the second part of a series or as a standalone. I believe the writer put enough detail in the story that you don't need the pre story or history you can get from Flesh. If paranormal is your thing and you don't mind, hot steamy sex scenes, this IS your book!
