 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...

Wild About You by Kerrelyn Sparks

Handsome Howard…Hunky Howard… Hot Howard… It’s not every day that Elsa Bjornberg feels fragile, not when she hosts a home renovation show where she can effortlessly demolish a kitchen. But from the moment she meets Howard Barr, this bear of a man makes her feel like a woman. And the way he looks at her, as if she was a pot of honey he’d like to lick… Howard is not like most men. For one thing, he’s a shapeshifter. And he always thought his celebrity crush would never amount to anything more than drooling at Elsa on the TV. When his meddling vampire employer gets involved, the star is suddenly within his grasp—and within a hair of her life. For an ancient curse forbids their newfound love, and Howard is suddenly torn between his desire for her and his desire to keep her alive. Barnes & Noble Amazon Review  Did...
