Top 5 Rules for a Vampire to Survive the Zombie Apocalypse - Guest blog and Giveaway with Robyn Bachar

1. Find defensible shelter.

Every vampire needs a nice, safe lair to hide in while the sun is up. Your lair is your fortress, a sanctuary for you and your flock that should be able to keep out angry mobs—living or dead. If you planned well you and yours will be safe from the zombie horde. But humans are fickle creatures, and the apocalypse will make even the most loyal flock nervous, so you should also include defenses between your coffin and your humans. Good fences make good neighbors, and titanium vault doors make safe vampires.

2. Find a sustainable food source.

Zombies aren’t edible. Blood banks are a lovely modern convenience that won’t survive the apocalypse, so you’ll need to find a group of humans to feed from. Ideally you should already have a flock, but you should add to it to ensure that you have a reliable blood supply. Not that humans are reliable—they’ll probably thank you for rescuing them with a wooden stake through the heart, hence the importance of rule #1.

3. Recruit guard dogs.

Or rather, werewolves. Werewolves are strong, sturdy and resistant to the spell that creates zombies, making them ideal soldiers to protect your lair during the day. All you have to do is convince them to ignore centuries of bad blood between vampires and werewolves and win their loyalty. Easy, right?

4. Eliminate other potential threats.

Zombies may be your main threat, but they are hardly your only threat. Be prepared to defend your territory from other enemies both mundane and paranormal. Other vampires will want to possess your humans—and you.

5. Be the good guy.

With the world turned upside down, everyone will be scrambling for power. Establish your rule quickly, or find yourself at the bottom of the food chain. Machiavelli may think it better to be feared than loved, but your humans will be traumatized enough by the end of the world. Benevolent vampires will survive longer than bloodsucking tyrants.

Book Description:

Consumed by the need to feed…

After an out-of-control spell triggers the zombie apocalypse, Lizzy Addams is left in the ruins of Chicago with only the slightly unhinged commentary—and endless erotic appetites—of her inner demon for company. Her blood supply dwindling, she is forced to find survivors to feed from, or die trying.

Officer Angela Kinney was on duty when hungry corpses overwhelmed the city. The survivors look to her for leadership, but nothing prepared her for a beautiful monster who offers safety in exchange for blood.

Sean MacMillan never expected to see Lizzy again after she rejected his attempts to lure her back to the vampire fold. But with his flock threatened by the horde and his murderous vampire brother, Lizzy is the only one he can trust to keep them safe.

The veil of secrecy shrouding the supernatural world torn apart, humanity’s only hope is to forge an alliance with vampires, werewolves, and things that go bump in the night. Though accepting their aid could be a devil’s bargain that puts humans at the bottom of the food chain.

Warning: Contains vampire orgies, angsty demon sex, a frisky lesbian werewolf, light kink, and enough sex toys to start a store.

We emerged from the coffin to find a note taped to the inside of my closet door, with the instructions, “Sean, read this first.”

No good would come of that. Irritated, I handed him the note and opened the door. I emerged into an empty, silent bedroom. Blinking in confusion, I paused after a few steps. No flock, no werewolves and no one seated at my computer. The door was shut and locked, and my stomach dropped as I was blasted by an icy wave of fear.

“What’s wrong?” I asked, whirling on Sean.

He stood in the doorway to the closet, lean and so tall he nearly scraped the doorframe. Sean studied me silently, his face a placid mask, and then he slowly unbuttoned the jacket he’d just donned and set it aside.

“Sean…” My voice dropped in warning as he began unbuttoning his shirt. I growled for added effect, but he continued, stripping the shirt and then the undershirt beneath until he was bare-chested. He didn’t seem interested or aroused—Sean looked like a man being led to the gallows. I growled again, but instead of a threat it was a sound of interest voice by my stirring demon. She was captivated by the landscape of pale skin across his toned abs, wondering what his skin would feel like beneath our fingertips.

Lean and strong, like our Athena. Wouldn’t they make a striking pair in our bed?

“Elizabeth, come here,” Sean ordered.

I was halfway to him before I realized what had happened—anger at falling so easily into the reflex warred with my demon’s desire to obey. With a snarl I froze, planting my feet in a fighting stance just out of arm’s reach.

“What the fuck is going on?” I snapped.
