Okay, so I've got serious reading envy this week. I'm promoing two books--the Julie Kenner book and then now MaryJanice Davidson's UNDEAD AND UNAPPRECIATED. Envy, you say? Yeah, because I haven't had time to read for fun in the past few weeks. I want time to pick these books up!
Here's more on MaryJanice's release:
UNDEAD AND UNAPPRECIATED by MaryJanice Davidson
(Berkley, July 2005)
Most women would love to live as royalty, but Betsy Taylor has found that being vampire queen has more problems than perks, except for always being awake for Midnight Madness sales. It may be easy to find blood (yuck) in the dark of night, but try finding a strawberry smoothie. And employees at her nightclub Scratch have been giving her nothing but grief since she killed their former boss. Some people...
But Betsy's "life" takes an interesting turn at a baby shower for her wicked stepmother, who lets it slip that Betsy has a long-last half sister. Now twenty years old, this woman just so happens to be the devil's daughter...and destined to rule the world.
Here's an excerpt.
