Rock Hill, SC- Newly relocated small press publisher, Mocha Memoirs Press, has released a horror romance that will keep the heat burning well into the fall. Canadian author, Ren Thompson’s latest novel, DEAD HEAT offers the terror of a zombie apocalypse and the fire of a LGBTQ romance.
Blurb: The heart just knows…The city of Toronto is now a thriving hotbed of undead activity, and Dana Layton, brash zombie hunter with a temper as fiery as her hair, believes in only one thing: taking care of business. As a member of an elite zombie hunting organization, Dana can hang with the best of them, but the wall around her heart is as high as the one erected around her fortified home.Kelly Forrester thought she had what she wanted most of all—a career that made a difference. Blindsided by a crash course in reality, Kelly is left with a life-altering choice: Should she play it safe or follow her heart?In an already dark world, a new kind of terror emerges, one that threatens to tear apart Toronto’s fragile peace.
Dana’s back is against the wall, and time is running out for both her beloved city, and the woman who’s stolen her heart.
Owner, Nicole Givens Kurtz stated, “DEAD HEAT is right at home in our line of Dark Mocha Bites stories. It’s a story that’s outside the mainstream, amplifies marginalized voices, and tells a great, harrowing story.”
Don’t take Nicole’s word for it. Reviews have already started pouring in.
“It is well written and highly descriptive…” says Arttoa, giving the novel a four star Amazon review.
JJ Dunway stated, ..”the journey is action packed and each piece meaningful and a realistic view of a world with zombies – not always easy and never clean,” giving it a four star Amazon review.
DEAD HEAT is not for the faint of heart, which is why it comes with an 18+ warning.
