Needing a little help with your wild man, werewolf boyfriend? Want to spice up your sex life with your yummy angel? Dating the Undead is perfect for the LG (living girl) with helpful tips, tricks and gift ideas for your sexy immoral man

Dating the Undead is a tongue in cheek, spoof on women magazines with a paranormal twist. Every page is dripping with great humor, from ads "Coffin Klein" to "Vladimir's Secret" to the articles that will bring a smile to the PNR fangirl with helpful "tips" with

Top 10 reasons why every paranormal romance reader HAS TO BUY this book:

1. If you think the cover is hot then you better wear a bib while reading this, there will be major drooling going on. Hunks galore!

2. It's not all about the eye candy. What Living Girl doesn't want tips for catching her own immortal man? This book has that and so much more fun with articles and quizzes!

3. The excerpts are perfect for a LOTU virgin or an obsessed fan. Maddox and Pari
Aare you looking for a gift for that special someone, that discriminating single that knows what she wants and what she wants is Mr. Wrong. Are you tired of the same old magazine, well trade in Healthy Living and Elle for Dating the Undead and get the down and dirty on how to attract that Vamp, Zombie or other un-human. Do you have a girlfriend getting married, this is the perfect shower gift, a birthday present for that friend that has everything or the best Valentine’s gift you could give. Or ...more
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!

This is just good, silly fun. It's written like a fake magazine, complete with tongue in cheek advertisements.
Laura the Highland Hussy

This was a really fun read.

It's like an issue of Cosmo for the girl who's dating an Immortal. This book/magazine has it all from horoscopes to the latest fashion for your undead boyfriend. The quizzes cracked me up, and I guess I'm "ready, willing and eager to date a creature of the otherworld."

The article "Nine Reasons We Crave Immortals" is fun and tongue-in-cheek. The Speculation if certain movie stars are undead *cough* Johnny Depp's a vampire *cough*
I decided to purchase this book on a whim. I love reading about immortal men and women falling in love and I thought this book would give me a good chuckle. While browsing through this book I was reminded of when I would buy teen magazines when I was younger and I would drool over the hot guys and "info" on how to obtain the right guy for me! LOL

This is really an enjoyable, light hearted read and if you are looking to gain some "info" into the hot hero's of your PNR books then look no further!

The Review:

My first impression when I opened the box and showed it to my husband was: “It looks like a Cosmo but for us girls who wish vamps/dragons/werewolves etc. were real.” (you guys should of seen the look I got in return) And it seems this impression was a lasting one.

I had been eyeing this book -- or book magazine -- for quite awhile now. When they offered it for review to me, I jumped on the chance! Who wouldn't want to read anything by authors Gena Showalter or Jill Monroe? Best of all, it is by both of them!

I absolutely loved this book! It is definitely for the Immortal lover in all of us. Can't decide which Immortal creature is for you? This book goes in depth of the pro's and con's of each species. It features werewolves, vampires, angels, dragons, demo

I’m a huge fan of Gena Showalter and her Lords of the Underworld series. When I learned about Dating the Undead, I attempted to pre-order it for my Kindle, only to discover to my shock and horror that it would only be available in print. I have nothing against printed books, but I prefer to read on my Kindle- something about instant gratification. However, once I got my copy of Dating the Undead, I realized why it’s unsuitable for e-book form.

How much fun does this sound?! I want to thank Molly over at Reviews By Molly for introducing this to me!! Once she told me about it, I had to rush over to Amazon and grab myself a copy.

My copy came today, thanks to my lovely UPS man and let me tell you - it is delish, laugh-out-loud humorous and just tons of fun! The endless drool-worthy pictures are awesome - remember back in the day when you used to grab those pop and movie mags, drool over the pics of the hot guys and hang them up on the wa

If y'all have been reading my reviews, you know that I rarely award a book 5 stars. But I loved this "book" from cover to cover. Gena Showalter and Jill Monroe have created a masterpiece with their magazine stylized book devoted to the world of Dating the Undead.

After checking out the cover, I turned to page one and was rewarded with an ad for Coffin Klein and I knew I was in for quite a ride. All the ads had me rolling. I mean, who
DATING THE UNDEAD appeared out of the blue and had me laughing from the first moment when I opened the package. A note-perfect parody of glamour magazines, every LG (living gal) with a zest for the paranormal will want to get their hands on a copy of DATING THE UNDEAD.

DATING THE UNDEAD has the look and feel of a high-end graphic novel and between the funny articles, parody advertisements, and excerpts of Showalter’s Lords of the Underworld series, my initial good impression just kept getting bet
Review originally posted on Bitten Books and given 4 stars.

If you're in the mood for something you can laugh your ass off at while ogling pretty immortals, Dating the Undead is definitely for you. The articles, ads, quizzes, recipes... every single page had so much thought put into it making Dating the Undead work like an actual magazine; a magazine that was supernaturally clever. I've picked up hundreds of magazines in my lifetime and usually I just skip to the parts I enjoy, I was amazed that

What a fun read! This book is set up like a magazine with less advertisements and more substance. All of this substance is fun and filled with all the paranormal guys you can handle.

I thought this guide was really neat. Any fan of paranormal romance will want this volume in their collection. It reads just like your favorite woman's magazine without the subscription cards and perfume samples (Thank the gods!). It's filled with advice on how to handle your undead lover or spouse. It has fun fashion and beauty tips, a love quiz, and tons of photos of very drool worthy male beings. I got a kick out of the ads that are littered throughout the book. Who wouldn't want to decorate ...more

this is like a magazine like book? but completely stupid and dull. sorry ladies i love yall books not this material though.
OMG I can't wait to read this! Not only is the guy on the cover seriously hawt, but the excerpt of Paris's story would be worth buying this alone.

UPDATE: March 17, 2012

Cosmo, The Supernatural Edition . . . That's how this very funny book reads.

It was so funny and the excerpt of Paris's story really is worth buying this for.

From articles like "Lotions and Potions and Scrubs--Oh, My!" to "Blood Stains on His Collar, Doritos in His Bed" plus ads for "Coffin Klein", "Howlex", and "Devlon", in additi
An excellent read. Informative and funny. Dating the Undead is set up (in size and content) like an issue of Cosmo, except geared toward immortals. Inside the pages you will find articles on all sorts of topics that will be helpful for you and your immortal, quizzes, recipes, an excerpt to The Darkest Seduction and more. My favorite part is the article "Real Life Lords of the Underworld BARE ALL!" The eye candy is to die for. I also loved such adverts as Coffin Klein, Vladmir's Secret, Jimmy Chr ...more
I adore Gena Showalter, and I could see her doing something off-the-wall like Dating the Undead. It would be really fun to see unique "books" like it a bit more often especially from other authors in order to get their take. Readers get hilarious advertisements, fantastical dating advice, even cocktail recipes in this gem of a magazine (that I sometimes wish was available in subscription just for the ads). I thought the concept was unique, whimsical, and quite enjoyable. Those who adore paranor ...more
A great lampoon and a fun read. Dishy, dishy manflesh. Showalter and Monroe must have had a blast putting this together!
Cosmopolitan with hot immortal guys? I knew I had to buy it! And it was the right dedision.

Jill Monroe and Gena Showalter present us with a dish of pure fun.
There's everything in here: recipes, quizzes, good advice, information about your favorite immortal, and so much more.
I don't want to give too much away since it would ruin all the fun, but this is definetely a must-read for every Paranormal Romance fan, and especially fans of Ms Showalters Lords of the Underworld series.

I really enjoyed this book! Writing a Cosmo Magazine type book for LG's (living girls) wanting to date immortals was a great idea! The ads were really cute. I liked the Gena and Jill's version of zombies as video game loving junk food addicts.

And really any book that talks about the importance of horn condoms for sexy time with your demon is ok by me! ;-)

I would love to see more of these with other creatures, articles and more dating advice from angels and demons.
John Orman
What's your love match--vampire, demon, or zombie? This is the type of book that has a quiz to help you find out!

The Sexy Pickup Lines article was quite amusing--
To a vampire: "Do you believe in love at first bite?"
To a zombie: "They say this bar is a meat market--and I would love to be your prime rib!"

Book seems to be addressed mainly to women--many photos of half-naked young studs in the articles and ads in this magazine-style book!
Rachel- Goodbye Borders
Oh my goodness! This is laugh-out loud hilarious! My favorite parts were the advertisements- think U.P.T. = Undead Pregnancy Test (so you know who or what you're having!). What I didn't care that much for? I realize she's one of the co-authors, but did we really need the Lord of the Underworld plugs? (yes, that's plural)

Ever catch yourself speed reading the latest copy of Cosmo in the grocery story checkout line? Ever wonder what the “undead” version of Cosmo would be like? *waggles eyebrows* Well, Gena Showalter and Jill Monroe have teamed up to bring you a slick paranormal guide to loving the immortal man – Cosmo style.

This was a great tongue in cheek read, a Cosmo style book, but where the content is all things paranormal. When reading you can't discount the ads, as they are part of the fun. With each page I found myself chuckling. If you need a pick me up and love all things paranormal, check this one out.
