Tall, Dark & Dead by Tate Hallaway

Garnet Lacey, the manager of a New Age bookstore in Wisconsin, has been refraining from practicing magic in order to escape the notice of the Vatican assassins who destroyed her coven. When a gorgeous man comes into the shop seeking mandrake, she has no idea her world is about to be turned upside down. She can tell he has no aura, which means he's dead, but he's like no other zombie or vampire she's ever known. She suspects he may be a powerful warlock because the mutual attraction between the two of them sure feels like magic!

This book was good. Not bad, not great, just good. It was different enough to hold my attention, which is always a good thing. But it wasn't funny enough, scary enough, or sexy enough to be great. The secondary characters were well developed, but the main characters weren't as deep as they could have/should have been. The relationship between Garnet and Sebastian was unsatisfying. When I read a fantasy romance, I want a fantasy relationship, not a one-night stand that lasts 3 days because some psychotic killers are after them both.
