Description

Imagine a vampire, complete with acid wit, misanthropism, and a love for ice hockey. Add in a strip club with a never-ending stream of women at his disposal. Toss in a sassy girlfriend and being framed for a crime he didn't commit. Now you have Staked. Eric is a vampire with issues. His short-term memory problem, for one. He not only can't remember what he did yesterday, he doesn't even remember how he became a vampire in the first place. Then there's his girlfriend issues. His one true love refuses to become a vampire, so she's in her eighties, now, but still hanging around, helping him run his strip club, the Demon Heart, in downtown Void City. His current girlfriend, Tabitha, won't stop bugging him to turn her into a vampire, but when he finally gives in and does, he's suddenly not interested in her anymore. Then there's the outcast issue. Despite the fact that his powerful abilities would guarantee him a place at the most exclusive vampire gatherings, he doesn't have time for those stuffed shirts. He just wants to hang out at the club, mind his own business. Except it's starting to look like someone's setting him up to take the rap for a recent werewolf murder.
It would help if Eric could actually remember if he did the deed, but he's pretty sure he didn't. And now the werewolves want to kill him as revenge. Tabitha might be the best person to come to his rescue...if he'll let her.

Review quote

..".certainly impressive for a debut. The plot is reminiscent of the early, and best, of the Anita Blake novels." -- Don D'Ammassa "[A] fast-paced story with a heady mixture of humor, violence, and sex." -- Library Journal "A pedal-to-the-metal demolition derby of sex and violence. Werewolves and vampires were never so much fun." -- Mario Acevedo, author of X-Rated Bloodsuckers
