With both her first anniversary as a vampire and her thirty-first birthday rapidly approaching, Vampire Queen Betsy Taylor still does not have everything lined up for her impending wedding. Her best friend is being testy; her pal, a veterinarian vamp, wants permission to bite her mortal lover; and a delegation of European vampires shows up to pay respect to the vampire royal couple and seek out any exploitable weaknesses. Betsy became the queen because a lot of the pesky vampire rules just don't apply to her. She doesn't even need to suck blood on a daily basis, so in the midst of all this turmoil, she decides to go on a blood-free diet, which leaves her in a perpetual state of annoyance as she eagerly anticipates the surprise party she has said is forbidden. Bubbly fun for fans of the series. Diana Tixier Herald
This New York Times bestselling author's Undead series is more popular than ever!
With her birthday coming up, Betsy isn't in the best frame of mind to face the powerful European vampires who have finally come to pay their respects. Playing politics is not her strong suit, especially when she finds out her best friend Jessica may have a life-threatening illness. Sure Betsy can save her life by taking it-isn't that what friends are for?-but the choice isn't in her hands.
With her fiancé Eric dodging all the wedding plans, Betsy's plate is full-and not with birthday cake. But who has time to pout? Not even a reluctant vampire queen, who is taking it one high-heeled step at a time in MaryJanice Davidson's creative, sophisticated, sexy, and wonderfully witty series.
