I received this today with a package of 2 other books from SandDanz, as part of the Paranormal Virtual Bookbox. During the time I was waiting for this, my name came up next at PBS for the other copy of this book I was waiting for. Since I'd just purchased some credits there anyway, I figured I'd grab that one too and be able to use one of the copies in a future swap, without having to wait for me to read it first. You know... actually having an AVL to play with, instead of a TBR! :)

ETA - Ended up releasing the other copy and keeping this one on Mt. TBR. :)

This is the 5th book in MJD's Undead series (not counting her two short stories in the Bite and Cravings anthologies).

Book Description
I tapped my pencil on the pad, trying to come up with a plan to tell my fiancé, Eric Sinclair, that I had decided to completely give up the blood-drinking thing. I figured being the vampire queen had a few advantages—as it was, every vampire I'd ever known had to drink every day, even Eric. But I could go up to a week without so much as a drop of O-neg. So, in honor of my birthday, and being in this job for a year, I figured I'd give it up completely. I would be in a blood-free zone!

Vampire Queen Betsy Taylor already has plenty on her plate. For one thing, next week is her birthday—the big 3-1 in human years, and one in undead years. (Yes, she bit the dust on her birthday last year.) On top of that, she still has wedding plans to finalize—and it's not helping that the prospective groom is avoiding anything to do with it. And then there's her decision to stop drinking blood—something she has yet to share with Eric Sinclair, her fiancé—who also happens to be the vampire king...

So the last thing she wants to deal with is uninvited guests, even if they happen to be the powerful European vampires who have finally come to pay their respects the week before her birthday. Some of them don't want Betsy as their queen and will do anything to get rid of her. As if turning thirty last year (not to mention dying) hadn't been traumatic enough. And trying to give up blood is making her really cranky... But who has time to sulk? Well, Betsy does... in the latest novel in the New York Times bestselling series Christine Feehan calls "delightful, wicked fun."

With her 31st birthday right around the corner, and plans for her upcoming nuptials chewing up so much of her time, Vampire Queen Betsy Taylor really doesn't have the time or patience to deal with the faction of European vampires that have decided to finally come and pay their respects to the Vampire Queen and King. Not only are they snotty and stuck-up, but one of them is also responsible for the death of fellow vampire and friend Dr. Sophie Trudeau. And Sophie's definitely holding a grudge since Alonzo simply drained her blood and left her for dead in a dark alley in Paris back in 1892. So now, on top of everything else, she's expected to decide the fate of this arrogant ass too?! With her brother BabyJon pooping up a storm, Betsy's definitely got her hands full!

It's been nearly a year since I visited Betsy because I wanted to catch up on her Wyndham Werewolves, who start to make appearances (as minor characters) in some of the Betsy books now. So I read the 2 short stories in the Secrets 6 and Secrets 8 anthologies, the short stories in Dead and Loving It, and the full-length novel Derik's Bane, all within the previous year before picking up Undead and Unpopular.

Like the previous books in the series, Undead and Unpopular was a quick, light read. You feel as if the whole novel could have happened in a single day or two, and in fact, I think it probably did, or a week at most. *grin* If you're looking for a wonderful story and intricate plot line, don't look here; this series is pure fluff! But the characters are likable and funny—not quite hilarious, but certainly chuckle-worthy—and the action is never dull. I'll be looking forward to Undead and Uneasy, the next in the series, which I hope to squeeze in soon so I can be fully caught up on this series. :)


This is now an RABCK reserved for HoserLauren, and will be sent to her along with Wendy's bookring for Undead and Uneasy.

The fifth book in the Undead series (5 books already??) sees Betsy trying to convince her friends not to throw a surprise party for her 31st birthday. Or is she trying to convince her friends TO throw her a surprise birthday party? Betsy is also continuing to plan her wedding with Sinclair, babysit her step-brother, host some European vampires, and, oh yeah, try to solve a murder.
I find that I can't read too many of these books in a row (for fear of losing brain cells? I'm not sure). It's been a while since I read book number 4 so this was a nice break from all the mysteries I've been reading! It's complete fluff, but fun fluff. This book isn't the best in the series, but it's not too bad.

This is definitely not a literary masterpiece but it is entertainment. Pure fluff!!

This time Betsy is planning her wedding, trying to come up with a guest list for her surprise birthday party, babysit her infant brother and host some European bigwig vampires. Everyone is ignoring the birthday party, her brother is messing his pants at every opportunity and these bigwigs turn out to have murdered her friend. What else can go wrong? Lots as it turns out!

These books are just fun to read.

Got the book as a request at paperback swap. I'm still waiting for book 4 - I like to read them in the right order. As soon as I get it I will read then read this one & send it back out into the world.
