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

This is my favorite series (the first half anyway) of all time! Anita Blake is the perfect heroine and I love everything about her except maybe her stubborn attitude. I love the world LKH has built and the characters she has given life to. Her writing is amazing and she will always remain one of my top 5 favorite authors.

This is the first book in about a 17 book series. I have to say, when I first picked up the book off of a friends coffee table, I didnt think I would like it. I am seriously into Anne Rice's vampire, a purest if you will. And I didnt think that raising zombies was something that would interest me at all. But, when Jean Cluade gets introduced and discribed...let's just say there is no putting down the book. It keeps you in it. Anita is very...fresh....very honest...and sometimes thats exactly what you need. She has no problem saying what she thinks. She feels a huge attraction to Jean Claude, but doesnt want to get involved with a "walking corpse". I am very much in love with this book. And I have recommended it to everyone I know...well at least the ones that i know read. :)

What can I say this is a great book. It keeps you guessing. If you are a fan of Buffy this would be a good book for you. Anita Blake a strong, independent women with a strange talent to rises the dead. This book shows that size does not matter, weather trying to save lives or ruling a community of vamps with fear and brutal tactics.
The master of the city calls upon Anita for help, she unwilling must assist. But Anita doesnt know what she has gotten herself into, because not only does she have one vamp mad with her when she is not as exactly cooperative as she hoped, but she also, has a vamp lusting after her by the end of the book. This was a great book and I cant wait to read the rest of the series:D
Romance book for older readers (gory scenes...)

"In Guilty Pleasures, Laurell K. Hamilton introduces us to Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter. Anita's small, dark, and dangerous. But when the city's most powerful vampire comes to her for help, Anita is faced with her greatest fear - a man capable of arousing in her a hunger strong enough to match his own..."
I expected this book to be a lot like Hamilton's Meredith Gentry novels, but this better in some ways. There weren't any really graphic sex scenes and the book focused more on a plot. It was a nice change. Vampire fans will be in heaven when reading Hamilton's Guilty Pleasures, as well as zombie and lycanthrope fans.
