Katherine Marie Ernshaw’s life is a mess … unfortunately death isn’t shaping up to be much better.
Katherine’s mother is a habitual bride, her sister is a self-centered, clothes obsessed nymphomaniac and Katherine has just had the misfortune of being dumped by her on-again, off-again boyfriend. Just when she believes things can’t get any worse … she’s bitten, dies, and awakens having been converted into a vampire. Now life is a distant memory, and death comes with all sorts of complications. Namely—
Lexarius Maxim, the handsomest vampire ever to be spit out of hell. Lex, having searched for Katherine for centuries, is elated when he finally discovers her. She is his soul-mate. He jumps at the chance to bite and convert his beloved—it is, of course, his right.
But Katherine isn’t having any of it. She’s been fired, her mother has married—again, her sister is hounding her for her new Marc Jacobs skirt, and her new vampire boyfriend just keeps trying to get a bite in. Not to mention she has no hiding place, no source of disposable income, and she’s being stalked by evil dead guys, all of whom seem to have unnaturally large stashes of silver-tipped arrows lying around.
It seems that everyone is after her blood. But all Katherine wants is to stop sleeping for fourteen hours during the day and to be able to consume angel food cake again. Oh, and it would help if she could keep herself from majorly lusting over the man who killed her.
Now Katherine and Lex are thrown together in a deadly dance of life, death, and more death.
Death takes a dive, and some serious twists as Katherine and Lex compete in a battle of wits—winner take all. And in the end, with cold corpses, warm blood, hyped-up sex drives and Slurpee … how does one keep from falling in love.
