Undead and Unworthy by Mary Janice Davidson
Synopsis: Betsy thought entering the world of the undead was a big adjustment. Being a new bride isn't much easier. The blush has only been on for two months, and she has a lot to do: set up the new house, finish writing thank-you notes, and raise BabyJon, her half brother and legal ward.
As if Betsy wasn't stressed out enough, her husband, Sinclair, has been perusing the Book of the Dead, and she's been visited by a ghost who's even more insufferable, stubborn, and annoying in death than she was in life. It's all just a prelude to the fun and games awaiting Betsy and Sinclair when a pack of ancient vampires, hungry for blood and power, pays a visit to the happy couple.
Book 7 of the Betsy Taylor series definitely has something to offer. The excitement and adventure is kicked up a notch, but once again Betsy is developing powers she didn't know she had before. This scares those around her as well as makes them wonder what she really is. Betsy is the Vampire Queen, but she doesn't take this role seriously. In no way does she begin to think of others, rather than focusing on the needs of herself. This book begins with a quote from the Book of the Dead, which leads you to believe the happenings for Betsy and Sinclair are in no way over. Although she will reign for one thousand years, I can't imagine the difficulties she will go through during that time. Overall, another indulgent easy read and a great addition to the series. I feel like I haven't read many books of substance lately, but rather have been enjoying the fast and easy reads. I'll make up for it soon!
