How To Seduce A Vampire (Without Really Trying) by Kerrelyn Sparks April 29, 2014 For 800 years, Zoltan Czakvar has been unlucky with love.   He just hasn’t met the right woman! When warrior princess Neona attacks the mysterious man invading her territory, she quickly realizes he is incredibly strong, fleet of foot, fair of face, and ‘seemingly’ intelligent.  So instead of killing him, perhaps she should mate with him… Barnes & Noble Amazon To Read a excerpt  Kerrelyn Sparks’ first paranormal romance, How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire, zoomed out of the bat cave so fast it became Borders bestselling debut romance of 2005.   Each book in the Love at Stake series has become a USAToday bestseller.  When the fourth book, The Undead Next Door, landed on the New York Times bestseller list, even the Undead sat up and took notice, which made Kerrelyn a bit nervous.

 Review of Vampires Gone Wild

Vampires Gone Wild by Kerrelyn Sparks My rating: 4 of 5 stars The reason I read anthologies is usually because I am busy and need quick stories to just help me wind down. This anthology was perfect for that. All the stories were interesting,some were funny, and all made me want to read more from the authors! Each story took about a hour or less, which is perfect for me right now. V is for Vampwoman-A funny take on redemption, I adored the characters and can't wait to read the rest of the series. A Forever Love-This story was exciting, and left me wanting to know what happened next! First Dates Are Hell-Awww, I loved the interesting premise of this one and hope I get to see Val and Esme's second date. Blood and Water-Something new and refreshing! I will definately be checking out more by Miss Falconer. Overall a...

Vacation Book #2: The Vampire with the Dragon Tattoo by Kerrelyn Sparks

The second book I snatched up after I sent in Round 1 revisions on Santa, Bring My Baby Back was The Vampire with the Dragon Tattoo by Kerrelyn Sparks. I really enjoyed Howard the doughnut-eating bear shifter and his match Elsa’s story so I was looking forward to Dougal the Scottish, be-kilted vampire. There were (at least) three things that made this such an enjoyable read: 1. The cast of characters. Since it’s number 14 in the series, you’ve had a chance to meet and really love a big variety of heroes and heroines so it’s nice to see their stories continue. 2. The humor. I laughed at Dougal and his muskrat sporran. Also, Laszlo and his buttons and his fox shifter (who has the funniest line in the book in my opinion)…so cute. I’m going to try to remember to use “Do you expect me to turn a kumquat into caviar?” in...
