Lust After Death - Client Book

This was one of those manuscripts that after reading the first draft I knew wasn't ready for submission but held great promise with a bit of guidance. Having an author who is open to constructive criticism and patient with edits made it a fun collaboration. We worked together to improve the story. In fact, Daisy rewrote most of it and when it was ready for submission, I was so excited about it, my pitch to the editor practically wrote itself!

Go buy the book... yes I'm biased about how great it is, but who cares? It's awesome and everyone should buy it! :D

Book Blurb:

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.
