"Hilarious Vampire tale with a touch of sex"

What can you say about a vampire whose loyalty can be bought by designer shoes?

Can we say, outrageous?

Betsy (a.k.a. Elizabeth) Taylor has had a very bad time of it. She was bitten by weird creatures a month or so ago, hit by a Pontiac Aztec while trying to rescue her cat, and has awoken in a coffin, dressed in a most unbecoming pink suit and wearing her evil step-mother's cast-off shoes. The fact that she is now a vampire is the only bright spot in the entire picture.

But Betsy is a vampire with a difference. God still loves her, so she can wear a cross, is immune to the effects of holy water, and doesn't self-combust in direct sunlight. This apparently makes her the queen-apparent of vampiredom, which is a crying shame since her principal concern is how she's going to adjust to a liquid diet and continue her designer shoe collection.

Fortunately she has friends, including some from beyond the grave, but they can also be an issue, such as the incredibly delectable, well endowed for a dead person, significant-other-vampire, Eric Sinclair, who offers to give her lessons in vampirism 101.

Yes, Betsy has problems, and the result is a hilarious book.

Betsy Taylor is having a helluva week. She's been laid off, her stepmother boycotted her birthday party (again), her cat isn't speaking to her, she can count on one hand how often she's gotten laid in the last 18 months, and she's dead.

As if this wasn't bad enough, she can't seem to stay dead. She rises each night in search of unholy sustenance and designer footwear. Worse, the other vampires are convinced she's been other words, she's the new vampire queen.

More concerned with her looks than vamp politics, Betsy just wants to keep her head down and adjust to her new liquid diet. Trouble is, the only vampires who want her more than the good guys are the bad guys. And when the good guys are ruthless, and the bad guys are unhinged, and they ALL want to have sex with her to cement their power base, it's tough for a modern girl to keep her shapely butt out of trouble...and out of bed.

UNDEAD AND UNWED is rollicking, sexy good fun, sure to get your pulse rate up and your funny bone throbbing!
