I was fortunate enough to get off work early yesterday and enjoy the rest of my Friday and Saturday at the Romantic Times Convention in Orlando Florida.

I am absolutely LOVING this series. I wasn’t certain I was in the mood for a silly fun female vampire series, but it is suiting me nicely! We’ve got laugh out loud moments, a nice romantic conflict, a sexy strong Vampire king, and some danger that never gets too intense.
This particular book looks into the life of the “newly” made Vampire “Betsy” (real name Elizabeth Taylor), who doesn’t think her “undead” status should change her life from how she used to live it.
As per the author’s website:
Chloe Saunders sees dead people. Yes, like in the films. The problem is, in real life saying you see ghosts gets you a one-way ticket to the psych ward. And at 15, all Chloe wants to do is fit in at school and maybe get a boy to notice her. But when a particularly violent ghost haunts her, she gets noticed for all the wrong reasons. Her seemingly crazed behaviour earns her a trip to Lyle House, a centre for disturbed teens.

As per the author’s website for book #1:
Elena Michaels is the world’s only female werewolf. And she’s tired of it. Tired of a life spent hiding and protecting, a life where her most important job is hunting down rogue werewolves. Tired of a world that not only accepts the worst in her— her temper, her violence—but requires it. Worst of all, she realizes she’s growing content with that life, with being that person.
So she left the Pack and returned to Toronto where she’s trying to live as a human. When the Pack leader calls asking for her help fighting a sudden uprising, she only agrees because she owes him. Once this is over, she’ll be squared with the Pack and free to live life as a human. Which is what she wants. Really.
