I prefer science fiction, fantasy, and horror without the spaceships, dragons, and zombies.
There are two copies of Dead Roses: Five Dark Tales of Twisted Love to be won over at Goodreads. If you still use that site, you might want to consider hopping over and entering to win. Today is the last day to sign up.
What do you get if you win? A handsome trade paperback containing the following stories:
ELEANOR, by Jason Parent
When Father Stuart McKenzie finds a disfigured girl abandoned on the steps of his church, he decides the child is a blessing from God and raises her as his own. But the special needs of Eleanor demand more from Stuart than a father can give.
LOVE LIES IN EYES, by Evans Light
Nathan falls for a beautiful girl from across a crowded room, but she disappears before he can muster his courage. Obsessed with getting a second chance, he’s about to learn that true love isn't only hard to find...it can be hard to lose.
PANACEA, by Adam Light
Decades of marriage haven’t tarnished Rob’s affection towards his dear wife Molly one bit, and he’s not about to let cancer snatch her away, no matter the cost. But every medication has its side effects, some more than others.
