In "Undead Sublet" by Molly Harper, executive chef Tess Maitland is banned from her five-star kitchen in Chicago to recover from "exhaustion". Choosing a random rental house in Half-Moon Hollow to spend time in, she's unaware that the house comes with a strange man.

Even though Sam Masden's ex-wife has rented the house out from under him, the divorce settlement allows him access to it for another ninety days. With Tess unable to go anywhere else, and Sam unwilling, a war of epic proportions is declared - and romantic sparks and heavy pots fly.

 

I don’t do a lot of anthologies but when Audible.com offered up this Molly Harper short for FREE I grabbed it up since it was the only story I wanted to read in the anthology.

Undead Sublet is a short story that takes place in Half Moon Hollow, the home town of Jane Jameson and if you are a fan of her series you should check out this story plus the other ones in the spin off series.

And since Undead Sublet takes place in Jane’s town we get to see Jane and some of her friends while Tess is on sabbatical from her nervous breakdown from work. Tess rents a house from an overly perky lady in hopes of getting reason and relaxation so she can get back to work in her Chicago restaurant.

But Tess finds herself sharing the house with Sam, the undead and soon to be ex-husband of said perky lady. Tess is pissed when she finds out that Sam’s ex-wife lied to her and won’t give her the rent money back. Tess is low on funds and has no where else to go for the month.

So with no other choice Tess lets Sam know that she is staying right were she is and that he can move out. One thing leads to another and the two are trying to punk the other enough to get them to leave. But during their turf war a friendship blooms. And after Tess spikes Sam’s blood with pepper juice the two share one hot kiss and the friendship starts turning into something more.

If you are a fan of Molly Harper or thought about checking her out this is a quick, fun and romantic read to introduction to her sexy and snark writing.

Narration Note: While Sophie Eastlake does a fine job of the narration I did miss the usual narration by Amanda Ronconi that does the other books.

My name is Jennifer (not Jen!) and I live in the South. I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two cats. I'm finishing my BA in English this Spring (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not touch anything labeled "classic" but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my courses. While I hated to read growing up I am now avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction with my favorite (at least to date) genres include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly paranormal from authors I read in the adult genre but I'm explaining after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in my college courses).
