"Mad About the Boy"
By Suzan Battah

To get rid of an annoying ex friend, Julia Mendoza begs a complete stranger to pretend he's her boyfriend without recognizing the cheeky surfer as the Augustine Heir. From her first meeting with Christophe Augustine, life takes a sudden detour from her workaholic agenda much to the delight of her boistorous Latino family.

"The Girls' Guide to Dating Zombies"
By Lynn Messina

Hattie Cross knows what you're thinking: Zombie sex? Ewwwww. But she also knows that since a virus turned 99.9999 percent of human males into zombies, it's impossible to meet—let alone date—the remaining 0.00001 percent. So she writes “The Girls’ Guide to Dating Zombies” to help women navigate the zombie-relationship waters. Her book impresses the CEO of the world’s largest drug company, and before she knows it, Hattie, a reporter for a downmarket tabloid specializing in conspiracies, is interviewing the woman who invented zombie behavioral drugs. In the inner sanctum of zombaceuticals, she meets an actual living, breathing M-A-N.
Now Hattie is acting like a single girl at the end of the 20th century: self-conscious, klutzy and incoherent. Worse, the human male appears to have impaired her ability to think. Because suddenly she's convinced a conspiracy is afoot at the drug company and it might go all the way to the top!
