Quick fun read in Betsy's world. She might be 'growing up' just a little as she learns to take responsibility for her actions. ( )

This is the 7th installment of the Betsy, Queen of the Vampires series. It's always good for a lightweight, quick-moving plot and lots of swearing and humor. There were a few deaths in here that a lot of people were freaking out about on Amazon, but I don't know, I guess I don't see it as a big big deal. It's not like they were real main characters or anything. Plus, I'm not even convinced that one of them is actually dead. Davidson did a pretty good job of dealing with the "what happened last time" info, spreading it throughout the book when it was needed. I will continue reading this series. It's nothing groundbreaking, just a fun, light read. ( )

Oh my...such foul-mouthed trashy language. This had to be the most shallow book of the series.

It took me quite awhile to get past the crap and into the actual story, which wasn't too bad and sometimes even funny.

As for staking someone, I vote for Jessica's stupid cop lover, Nick!

How & why this series should have made it into hardcover is a mystery to me, it certainly not worth the extra money. Yet, it's still a fun, if shallow series to read...but hard cover??? ( )

Book 7 in the Queen Betsy series. Betsy is finally married, but her life doesn't settle down. Another easy and fun read. ( )

Not as good as some of the previous stories, but still entertaining. I could do without the soft porn scenes, however. ( )

Bored, I crossed the carpet in five steps, climbed up on Sinclair's desk, and kissed him.
[the ghost of the Ant, to Betsy]
'This is how you spend your time? Squabbling with people who don't bathe?' (chapter 17)
Tina obeyed me in superficial matters (while you're up, could you get me a glass of orange juice? Could you show Officer Barry the door? Could you hit Sinclair over the head with the fax machine?), but on matters like this, her allegience was clearly to Sinclair. (chapter 34)

Book description
Having recently lost her dad and step-mother, Betsy Sinclair (nee Taylor) is adjusting to rather more than just married life. Their untimely deaths have left her and Sinclair as sole guardians of her little brother, Jon. Two vampire parents - albeit vampire royalty - for a decidedly human baby. But then the ghost of Betsy's step-mother turns up at their house. And as stubborn and insufferable as she was in life, she's even more annoying in death ...
