Why, Oh Why, Do We Love THEM So?

Nine Reasons We Crave Immortals

What is it about undead dudes that really gets us going? Their looks, for sure—whether your taste runs to sensitive Angel types or steamin’ Demons. But there are so many other reasons to fall for an immortal, and we’ve assembled our Top 9—you can decide the 10th!

  1. Their manly beauty doesn’t have an expiration date, and neither does their dangerous bad-boy appeal! He’ll look just as
    handsome—and still have new tricks up his flowing sleeve—for all eternity. So . . . go ahead, Dragon-lover, play with fire every day—those flames will never die. And he’ll never have to go on your insurance plan, either.
  2. You’ll never be ashamed to be seen with him. Most immortals dress better than we do (though some can use a little
    help from us . . . if he’s one of them, see page 67 for helpful tips on making over his wardrobe). So, say goodbye to phrases like, “You’re not going to wear that, are you?” and walk down the street proudly beside him. (You might even want to borrow some of his scarves— especially if you are hiding a few telltale “love bites.”)
  3. They can afford to show you a good time. Living forever is great for the bank account—they’ve been stashing away dough since the days of pirate treasure, and they know the stock market like the backs of their hairy hands. Go ahead and buy the strappy sandals and the red patent pumps—your howlin’ hottie won’t complain when the bill comes.
  4. Due to circumstances beyond their control, very few immortals have mothers. Think about it. This means you’ll never have a mother-in-law to pass judgment on how you dress, cook, or keep house. You heard right: there’s no such thing as a “monster-in-law.”
  5. Enjoy flying? How about without a plane? Yep, you’re bound to get carried away when you date an immortal—and I mean dinner for two in Paris followed by a stroll around Sydney harbor. No need to fasten your seatbelts, either. These guys have a perfect safety record, even when carrying a dressed-to-the-nines LG under their ever-lovin’ wings.
  6. Hard-bodied perfection is the norm among immortals. Who knows why, but those rippling muscles and washboard abs
    go with the territory. No matter how many bags of Doritos your Zombie scarfs down or how much steak tartare your Werewolf
    devours, he’ll maintain his glorious physique for the duration. (And, with the workout he gives you, so will you!) Oh, and as for his dome—he’ll never go bald, guaranteed.
  7. Chores no more. Not only are immortals eager to please, most of them never sleep. So go ahead, lazybones, stay in bed til
    three. Just leave him a to-do list and your house will be spotless and your fridge filled with your favorite treats by the time you get up.
  8. Not just sexy—romantic, too. What might seem old-fashioned to some guys is “classic” to an immortal, from bringing home flowers to remembering every anniversary (including the first bite or first full moon together). After all, he was once a genuine Victorian gentleman. If rose petals on the sheets never get old for you, go immortal!
  9. Need space? No problem. An immortal is never clingy or (too) possessive—on the contrary, he is happy to let you enjoy a night out with the gals or watch Twilight for the 25th time. Maybe it’s because he needs his alone time too, to enjoy a wing massage, moisturize his paws, oil his scales, or (in Zombie’s case) reach that last level of his favorite video game. You’ll never feel smothered—except occasionally by his awesome wings, but that’s okay, right?

About Jackie 3282 Articles
I am a 30-something SAHM with two adorable boys and a supportive husband who is very tolerant of my reading addiction. I love to read and easily go through about a dozen books a month – well I did before I had kids. Now, not so much. After my first son was born, I began to take my hobby of reviewing a little more serious and started Literary Escapism to help with my sanity. I love to discuss the fabulous novels I’ve read and meeting all the wonderful people in the book blogging community has been amazing.


  1. I am SOOO getting this book!!! What fun!! I can’t wait until August to see if I win (buying it this weekend.) But the tenth reason we love immortals?
    10. When they say they’ll love you forever, they really mean, FOREVER!

  2. Their line of work may require them to do a lot of travelling and therefore own many properties around the world. You’ll never be bored visiting one cabin, villa, mansion or picket-house fence around the world.

  3. Thanks for the fabulous post and giveaway! LOL.. I *must* read this book :)

    I’d have to say #10 is: no more annoying “Guy’s Night Out” that lasts all night b/c most immortals are loners and don’t need guy time to reaffirm their masculinity.

  4. when they mate that’s it for them. No straying and with all the practice they had before hand well you get the beneift of that. Win Win imo.

  5. Hopefully they’ve lived long enough to have figured out what not to do and say in tricky situations….That could save a lot of hurt feelings and bruised hearts.

  6. #10 – You never have to fight over the thermostat. Immortals don’t have to worry about getting too cold or hot which means you can keep the house as warm as you like. A wolf shifter might be too warm but they can always lose a few layers of clothing. ;)

  7. #10: After living so long, they know what’s really important. No more dealing with petty problems!

    Thanks for the giveaway!

  8. 10th, hmmm they have had probaly ever agruement and not really interested in doing them over ;)
