Anita Blake is the "vampire slayer", an executioner of vampires on the wrong side of the law, but when a powerful vampire takes control of her friend, Anita finds herself working for the creatures she's so famous for destroying.

Guilty Pleasures is essentially a criminal mystery of the paranormal variety. Fast paced and action packed, it bears some similarities to series like Kate Daniels, Sookie Stackhouse and The Dresden Files. Readers should be aware that this is an adult novel containing:
  • Killing/Death (sometimes in gruesome manners)
  • Decapitation
  • Disturbing crime scene images
  • Injuries (Blood, broken bones, knife/gun wounds)
  • Zombies
  • Sexual banter & Discussions about sex
  • Kissing
  • Strippers and various strip club activities
  • Attempted rape
  • References to genitals, breasts, and various other areas of anatomy
  • Nudity
  • Casual sexuality between numerous people 
  • Biting and Blood drinking as a sexual activity
  • References to rape of little boys by adult males
  • Vampire bites/feedings
  • Substantial use of Profanity (lots of F words, female dogs in heat, unwed parents, and human waste)
