It'a been a helluva week for Betsy Taylor First she loses her job Then to top things off she's killed in a car accident But what really bites besides waking up in the morgue dressed in a pink suit and cheap shoes courtesy of her stepmother is that she can't seem to stay dead Every night she rises with a horrible craving for blood She's not taking too well to a liquid dietWorst of all her new friends have the ridiculous idea that Betsy is the prophesied vampire queen and they want her help in overthrowing the most obnoxious power hungry vampire in five centuries a badly dressed Bela Lugosi wannabe natch Frankly Betsy couldn't care less about vamp politics but they have a powerful weapon of persuasion designer shoes How can any self respecting girl say no? But a collection of Ferragamos isn't the only temptation for Betsy It's just a lot safer than the scrumptious Sinclair a seductive bloodsucker whose sexy gaze seems as dangerous as a stake through the heart

    This is one of those guilty pleasure books that you feel somewhat embarassed about Shuffling through the romance section of Barnes Noble is a new and awkward treat for me Not only did I not expect to ever read anything from this side of the bookstore I never expected to enjoy it quite so much Before I go any further my macho side feels compelled to point out that I originally stumbled upon one of Davidson's books in the new releases section and having recently read Christopher Moore's Bloodsucking Fiends and You Suck the page and a half I read of the book seemed like just the thing to cure my vamp itch To my bemusement I found the series in the romance section This notwithstanding I didn't hesitate in scooping up the first in the series a lovely pink and purple book Now that my inner male is somewhat pacified I can continue talking about the book itself Each book in the series is very short only a few hours of reading time But what they lack in length they than make up for in fun Davidson's protagonist Betsy is a zany smart alecky newbie vamp who of course blunders her way from situation to situation with a charming mix of naivete and sass Beyond the somewhat gratuitous torrid love scenes indicative of the genre which despite their female perspective manage to be excitingly readable read it's not all man chests and pork swords this book throws at you a fun mix of spontaneous wisecracking characters that don't fail in providing a few hours of lighthearted entertainment If you like vamps and sex or shoes this series is worth the awkward trip to the romance section I recommend grabbing a couple of these books as they are very quick reads and indulgently addictive
