Guilty Pleasures by Laurell K. Hamilton

Guilty Pleasures (Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter, #1)

Goodreads Summary:  Anita Blake may be small and young, but vampires call her the Executioner. Anita is a necromancer and vampire hunter in a time when vampires are protected by law—as long as they don't get too nasty. Now someone's killing innocent vampires and Anita agrees—with a bit of vampiric arm-twisting—to help figure out who and why. 

My Take:  Anita Blake is a Vampire Hunter and her job is to raise the dead (zombies). She is caught in a sticky situation when she goes out with some friends to a Vampire Club for her friend’s bachelorette party.
Trust is a luxury Anita can't afford when her allies aren't human. The city's most powerful vampire, Nikolaos, is 1,000 years old and looks like a 10-year-old girl. The second most powerful vampire, Jean-Claude, is interested in more than just Anita's professional talents, but the feisty necromancer isn't playing along—yet. This popular series has a wild energy and humor, and some very appealing characters—both dead and alive.

While there, the Master Vampire blackmails her into working for her. The book is a journey that Anita takes trying to find who is killing all the vampires in town.
