Welcome to the first and only magazine devoted to loving the immortal man in all of his furry, feathery, fiery glory. As always, this month’s issue is a forbidden-fruit salad of features, fiction, fashion, and more, including:

And so much more!

There’s even a page-turning, strange-but-true paranormal romance that’ll keep you up all day! Don’t get caught UNDEAD without it!
Have you ever had questions about Immortals and didn't know who to ask? Well look no further because Dating the Undead has all the insider secrets on all things paranormal. It's a book that is actually a parody of a magazine devoted to helping those who are interested in dating a paranormal or are currently in a relationship with one...and it's absolutely hilarious! I found myself laughing so much while reading and I'm not surprised because that's one of the things you can be guaranteed will happen when Gena is involved.  She has a great way of weaving comedy into her storylines and it's one of the reasons why I enjoy her books so much.   Dating the Undead discusses different paranormals and the issues with some of them.  It reads like an issue of Cosmopolitan offering friendly advice and insider information while there are ads for different products such as cover up for vampire bites on the neck.  Every page is entertaining and you'll find yourself reading it as if it's all real!  This book is genius because while we all know it's not real (or some of us may not know this), it's cleverly written and you'll find yourself nodding your head and thinking about how it good might be to date a vamp, werewolf, or dragon.

I'm giving Dating the Undead a rating of:

The great bonus to reading Dating the Undead is that the first 2 chapters of The Darkest Seduction by Gena Showalter is included!  I cannot wait to read Paris's story and it was great to get this sneak peek while reading the book.  Dating the Undead is the type of book that any paranormal lover would love and I can guarantee that you would find yourself picking it up off the shelf and rereading it from time to time.  There are lots of pics of hot models in it and I found myself fanning my face while trying not to drool over the pages while reading.  It would also make a great book gift to a friend and since paranormals are so popular right now, you would totally be the coolest friend ever for giving this gift!  Overall, this book was a fun read and if you're a fan of Gena Showalter or Jill Monroe, you won't find yourself disappointing at all by reading Dating the Undead.


  1. This looks like so much fun. Thanks for showcasing it.

  2. Oh my god- it has the first 2 chapters of The Darkest Seduction! I would get it for that alone, even though I love Gena Showalter and would read anything she writes. And hot models... definitely my kind of fun.

  3. It sounds so fun! I need to find it now, thanks ;-)
