It’s Halloween, which means lots of bats, witches, pumpkins, and my favorite part: candy. Between all the haunted houses, corn mazes, costume balls, and apple-bobbing contests, I hope you’re still finding the time to curl up on the couch with a mug of cider and a good romance.
Some readers like their books to match the season; beach reads and adventure romance for the summer, snowbound cabin books and all the holiday reads will get you through the winter. Fall makes me want to pick up farmer and back-to-school books, until October hits and the stores are stocked with costumes, candy, and truly bizarre yard decorations.
While there are Halloween romances, I’m more inclined to head for the supernatural for my seasonal fix. I could go shifters or witches, but this year I’m heading off the beaten path for something a little less…alive and hunkering down with some zombie and zombie apocalypse romances.
Zombies may not seem like a logical choice for romance, because let’s be real, they’re creepy AF. But there’s something about peril that sets a tone for convincing, light-speed romance, and you have to offer a hardy salute to any author who can make a romance work between the undead and the not.
So I’m going to go ahead and say that zombies and romance go together like peanut butter and bacon: at first you might wrinkle your nose, but once someone convinces you to taste it, you’re all
I’m pretty sure those aren’t brains he’s chowing down on?
Anyway, without further ado, here are some zombie and zombie apocalypse romances to get you through the holiday and beyond.
