** spoiler alert ** Elizabeth (Betsy) Taylor - 30, secretary, exMiss Congeniality, fashion conscious, a bit ADD, loves expensive fashion shoes... attacked 6 weeks earlier by a gang that bit her after she left a restaurant (where she ate lots of garlic), and then ran away... and today, she's had a tough day - laid off from job, snowy, car broke down, goes outside to rescue cat from snow & is hit by a car... she wakes up inside a coffin - and a vampire...

but she is a unique vampire - although thirsty, she is not overwhelmed with thirst... she can go into churches and recite the lord's prayer... sunlight does not burn her... she does zonk out during daylight... she is the fulfillment of an ancient prophecy - a worthy queen with unique abilities... she reconnects with her mother - who accepts her; her best friend Jessica - who accepts her; her father - who is frightened; her stepmother - who still hates her (stole her shoes when she thought she was dead)... she attempts to kill herself, doesn't work... so she endeavors to accept things... people, especially men are very nice and helpful to her... she can smell emotions...

Her first 'drink' is from police detective Nick - and he responds sexually, and 'comes' in his pants... he is enamored of her... a couple of nights later she goes to a man getting ready to jump - talks him out of it... drinks from him (and he comes), but Mike is gay and a bit more immune to her charms - though he decides to move in with her & protect her during the day... he is a doctor, depressed about what he can't control... and decides he can be her sidekick and give her the names of horrid parents, etc. to take care of...

And she gets mired in vampire politics - especially as her special powers come to light... evil Nostros on one side and handsome, cocky Sebastian on the other... they defeat Nostros... she is fed on and feeds on Sebastian and has tremendous sex with him(in a swimming pool, with the rest of the clan watching from above)... and is declared queen to Sebastian's king... she is attracted to him, but doesn't particularly like him & his ways (though he is sending her dozens of fashion shoes)...
