In Undead and Unwed, Betsy Taylor is 30 years old and has spent time as both a fashion model and a secretary, only to find herself unemployed and a recent casualty of a car accident. The main problem is that, although she died in the crash, she doesn't stay dead.
She finally wakes up in her own coffin wearing an outfit she would decidedly not have selected for herself, especially those horribly cheap shoes.
This humorous chick-lit novel gives a unique stance on the vampire theme. Betsy joins forces with another vampire, the beautiful, although somewhat perverted vampire, Eric Sinclair.
Betsy's own family has mixed feelings about her return from the clutches of death. Her mother loves having her daughter back. Her father's wife prefers having Betsy's designer shoe collection than her daughter-in-law back in the flesh.
Betsy tries to solve her own problems, but is kidnapped by the centuries-old vampire Nostro, who diverts her plans. Betsy refuses to conform to traditional vampire roles. She is a strange mix of modern trendsetter, dead, unwed female who can't stay dead, no matter how much she tries, and worrier who can't get away from the life she has led up to this point.
When she finds out that her friends believe she is the savior figure who has been prophesied as being the vampire Queen who is supposed to overthrow the world's most power-hungry vampire, things really start to heat up.
