MaryJanice Davidson has written in a variety of genres, including contemporary romance, paranormal romance, erotica, and non-fiction. She lives in Minnesota.
Surrounded by ghosts, zombies and death, our heroine Betsy continues her reign as Queen of the Vampires, trying to prove to Europe’s vampires that she is best, not that she cares, but King husband does. This is a delightful, chic-lit series with a difference and a heroine who is happy to save the world providing she has time to shop! Young, fun, frivolous and easy to read, you don’t have to start at the beginning but the other four are great fun too.Comparison: Laurel K Hamilton, Nancy Collins.
I really enjoyed this and the second in the series, published at the same time; two more are due later in the year. Crossing romantic comedy with a Buffy-style vampire tale, they are sexy, compulsive, quick to read and the most enormous fun. Betsy, a smart, trim, well-dressed girl with a passion for designer shoes, has a bizarre accident and wakes up alive in a morgue, little knowing she is now a vampire, but no ordinary vampire for garlic, sunlight and holy water do not affect her. As she is drawn into vampire politics, these traits make her stand out and so she is hailed a queen. The mix of vampires and humans is beautifully handled, their relationships developed throughout the books, so do move on to the second.Comparison: Buffy, Laurell K Hamilton, Anne Rice.Similar this month: None.
In the first in the series we discovered how Betsy became a vampire queen and acquired her gorgeously sexy king. Now we follow them into their adventures. Kinky, with a nice twist, I was happy reading this directly after finishing the first.Comparison: Buffy, Laurell K Hamilton, Anne Rice.Similar this month: None.
