Tiffany Golden is having the time of her death.
Having spent the last weeks of her life trying to put a sexy senator into the White House, she redoubles her efforts afterwards. In such a close election, she knows that even a small downtrodden minority can make all the difference—and what minority is trodden down further than her fellow undead (by about six feet, usually). Soon she has an issue she can really sink her teeth into—namely, leading the (pardon the expression!) crusade to organize this much-despised demographic into a powerful voting bloc. And along the way, she meets with the battiest bunch of vampires, vampire slayers and vote seekers this side of Terry Pratchett.
--George Zagorsky, her vampire sire, who asks himself, in almost every crisis, "What would Bela Lugosi do?"
--Tim Johnson, a male model, who finds new career opportunities in posing for the covers of erotic romantic vampire novels—with the strict understanding that he can only work at night
--a crazy crew of self-chosen Vampire Slayers, hastily formed from the disaffected faction of the Jefferson Davis High School PTA
--and, as always, in any presidential election year, the TV pundits, who are eager to tell the public how much the Vampire Vote will really count.
--But above all, there is Tiffany’s hero, the presidential candidate, Felix O’Neill. He rewards her efforts by inviting her into his bed—where they really do make things go bump in the night.
