Betsy Taylor--former model, newly unemployed secretary, 30, and still single--wakes up after being flattened by a small SUV in a tacky coffin wearing cheap knock-off shoes. Her mother is glad she is back, albeit as a vampire, but her stepmother is enraged that Betsy has reclaimed her designer-shoe collection. With a wealthy best friend and a newly acquired doctor pal who is not susceptible to her formidable allure, she sets out to right wrongs but is abducted by Nostro, a tacky 500-year-old vampire who rules the undead roost. It seems that Betsy is an anomaly: a vampire who doesn't burn in sunlight, can fight the urge to feed, and is not repulsed by religious articles, all of which may make her the prophesied Queen of the Vampires. Teaming up with gorgeous vampire Eric Sinclair, who is in her opinion a major pervert, she takes on Nostro and his minions. Sexy, steamy, and laugh-out-loud funny, Davidson's chick-lit foray into the paranormal is delightful. Diana Tixier Herald

The heorine died and became a vampire, but does that stop her, oh no, in fact its just going on with life undead, worries about your pet, your job, your family and friends, the future and what you plan to wear the next evening does not stop just because one survives mutliple death situations. Those situations she can handle but as Vampire Queen, she's going to have deal with fashion cliches, threats against her life and a sexy, sexy man with stamina of bull. What's next for her she does not want to know, but it will be fun for us to read.
It was a little of WB's Angel, the clut classic Buffy, Sex and the City and the A-Team. "The Sidekicks", followers and consorts, fun, funny, sexy and deadly.
Lines like "My being a vampire doesn't bother you but my giving money to P.E.T.A does?" will have you chuckling behind this book, the sly wit that is in the lines of this book, make one of the best this year!!!
This is a must have and if you enjoy it that try Shari Shattuck's "Loaded" The say wit and humor with sass, sex and smarts these two authors are just being their careers and I can't wait to read more.
What would happen if, say Cher from CLUELESS woke to find herself a vampire? Elizabeth "Betsy" Taylor is a fashion (especially shoe) obsessed former model who just got laid off from her thankless secretarial job and then is hit by a car and killed - all on her birthday! She wakes in a funeral home and it doesn't take much to figure out that she's not alive but not quite dead either. Being a zombie is NOT and option, but when her several attempts to finish herself off fail, and a weird thirst for blood (eeww!) asserts itself, she has to face it - she's a vampire!
Its just hysterical watching Betsy adjust to her new vampire lifestyle and powers. But there are some ways in which the usual vampire rules don't apply to Betsy. She can still enter churches, crosses and holy water don't bother her and sunlight is not fatal. What's up with that? Her unique abilities bring her before head vamp Nostro who's determined to bring her under his control. And when sexy "tall, dark and sinister" Eric Sinclair offers to become her vamp mentor are his motives good or evil? Betsy is not sure, nor is she interested in getting involved in "vamp politics", she just wants to be left alone. Sinclair is frustrated by her too human compassion, her self absorption and her immaturity, all of which just highlights her need for guidance from the right quarter - he's also very attracted to her. When she's told that she's the prophesied "vampire queen" it's way too much! She's only been a vampire for a week for heaven's sake! Things become more dangerous when Sinclair asks her to join forces with him against Nostro. She resists until he makes an offer she cannot refuse: her support for designer shoes! The vampire world is in for some changes, baby!
Ms Davidson will continue with these characters when UNDEAD AND UNEMPLOYED comes out 8/04. Betsy still needs to find job and also figure out her new place in the vampire world. Sinclair still has a ways to go in proving himself to Betsy. And then there's detective Nick Barry - did he really forget his vampiric experiences? A really fun read that is very highly recommended!! Also look for THE ROYAL TREATMENT an alternative reality erotic romance coming 5/04.
Delightful. I thought this is was a hoot. Betsy has no clue what she is doing and definitely does not want to be Queen. Sinclair is delightful he has a bit of bad boy and a ton of charisma. Entertaining, looking forward to more in this series.
Scene after scene in the book has Betsy making fun of someone she doesn't know, assuming she is smarter and better than everyone she meets, taking advantage of her true friends, badmouthing her grieving parents after her death and resurrection, disposing of a friend's CDs because she personally doesn't care for HIS musical tastes, and in the end, Betsy essentially sells herself for shoes.
Don't get me wrong, I am all for gorgeous handmade Italian shoes! Betsy's life revolves around her vanity AND she is a nitwit. That drove me crazy for the entire book. I kept hoping Sinclair would just stake her. I will pass on the rest of the books in this series.
