Undead and Unwed by Mary Janice Davidson
The story starts off with our heroine, Betsy Taylor, getting laid off. Then she gets run over by an Aztec when she goes outside to rescue her cat during a snowstorm. The next thing she knows, she's waking up in a funeral home with a bad makeover and a cheap outfit her stepmonster picked out for her burial.
In time, Betsy comes to realize that she is a vampire and she becomes introduced to other vampires and their way of life. Surprisingly, they think she is the prophesied vampire queen and won't let her go about her life as she pleases.
This is a humorous mix of comedy, vampire fiction, and chick lit. The author continually pokes fun of the story and the characters throughout the book, and that makes the story all the more enjoyable.
It was a little "romance novel-ish" at times, which I don't particularly care for, and it has quite a bit of bad language, so if that bothers you, this is not the book for you.
This is the first book in the "Queen Betsy" series.
Fiction - 2004.
