After 499 years of existence, Connor Buchanan has arrived at an inescapable conclusion: he is a cold-hearted SOB. He's been watching his friends—those poor romantic fools—plummet off the cliff into love like a dazed herd of sheep. But not Connor. He knows that love leads to nothing but heartache.
Until Marielle . . .
She is an angel cast down from heaven for disobedience. Trapped in mortal form, she finds a protector in Connor, a Scottish vampire haunted by a dark past. Marielle hopes to heal his broken heart and earn her way back home, but suddenly she has these . . . feelings. This strange yet pleasant physical yearning—for a vampire! Is this the work of a demon luring her into hell, or has this angel found heavenly bliss? (courtesy of HarperCollins.com)
Kerrelyn Sparks Love at Stake series is fun and sexy. This is book 10 for the series and I picture at least 2 more from the set up we find in this book...
Our main vamp is one of my favorite in the series - Connor - he's holding the sanity and security of his friends and family by straws. All around the vampires are succumbing to love. He's helped make connections and tried to keep his friends on track, but he's a red-headed scot with a chip on his shoulder. I'm so happy he's finally getting his own book!
Sparks pulls in a new paranormal element with a fallen angel and a few demons. Could there have been a little more heat? Maybe, but Connor is not with out honor and how can you defile an angel?
I love the humor with the things that come out of Marielle's mouth as she tries to learn the ropes on earth. She stops Connor dead in his tracks (no pun intended) and picks up quickly on how to twist her innocence.
Over all, Loved how Sparks keeps up the action with Caismir, gives us the humor, and keeps up the steam --- anxiously awaiting to see who's next on the list for a book.
