Undead and Unwed

After several (hysterically funny) attempts to fix her undead status, none that work, she retreats to her home. Contacting her family helps her come to terms with her undead status, her father and step-mother are of course unbelieving, some things never change, but her mother and best friend, Jessica, are pragmatic and supportive.

Being undead has some perks: you get to terrify your evil stepmother and get all your designer shoes back. You suddenly become wildly sexy and have sex with the detective you've been lusting after: you get these super powers that allow you to leap tall buildings in a single bound and have the strength to kick the bad guys butts. However, for every benefit there are drawbacks, such as having this thirst for blood (ick), dogs that chase you every time you step out of the door (double ick) and now you are smack dab in the middle of two warring factions of vampires. There is Nostro who reminds Betsy of really bad Bela Lugosi wannabe, complete with an even worse Napoleon complex, who wants her completely dead. Then there is the extremely sexy Sinclair who persists in telling her she is the foretold Queen of the Vampires, unfortunately, he aggravates her even while he makes her want to jump him for some vampire nookie.

UNDEAD AND UNWED is an outrageous, laugh out loud story that you will NOT want to put down once you've started. Ms. Davidson has presented the vampire genre with a whole new slant, giving Betsy an irreverent attitude that irritates Nostro, captivates Sinclair and makes this book not only a keeper book but will have you waiting on tenterhooks for the next story to come. You will also want to bone up on your designer shoe knowledge since Betsy has a true fetish for them.
