Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Sarah Dearly has been a vampire for only a couple of months, and life is returning to normal. Well, as normal as it can be. She’s jobless and her master vampire beau, Thierry, is still married to (but separated from) his sire. But things are looking good with a job interview, her high-school reunion, and the chance for annulment. Too good, it turns out, when suddenly her contented, normal life goes very bad. The fourth in Rowen’s series bears the hallmarks of her smartly written chick-lit paranormal romances but takes a pivotal, darker turn as Sarah must finally embrace her inner vampire. --Nina C. Davis

Sarah Dearly has really bad luck! 10 weeks ago she was bitten and turned into a vampire by her blind date. (Don't blind dates suck!?) She is a newly made vamp who just wants her normal life back. "She tries to get a nice regular job and gets staked at the interview"... she goes to her high school reunion where a witch seeking revenge curses her "making her a bloodthirsty, sun-allergic nightwalker (the worst kind of vampire there is)" and to top it off, she's in love with a gorgeous 600 year old master vampire, Thierry, who's stuck in a centuries old "marriage of convenience" and can't seem to get out of it. And did I tell you about the mysterious scarfed vampire that pops up at the most convenient times to 'save' Sarah, but may have sinister ulterior motives?!

So starts another adventure for our heroine Sarah as she gets use to life as a vampire, in a world where vampires are still hunted and she has been mistakenly been labeled 'The Slayer of Slayers' due to an unfortunate encounter with a couple of guys who wanted to kill her (literally put a stake thru her heart!) but didn't quite make it.

This is the 4th book in the Immortality Bites series by Michelle Rowan. But don't let that discourage you from picking this book up - there's a prologue that tells us how Sarah and Thierry meet and in the first few chapters we meet most of the key players and feel right at home. Sarah is a great character - she's sarcastic, funny and gets herself in some tough situations because of her belief that most 'people' are basically good. And it's this innocence that gives her charm. There is plenty of chemistry between Sarah & Thierry, but no x-rated scenes here, there are strong friendships that exist between the characters, and the writing is good. The story did not let me down.

Sarah Dearly might be a new vampire but her life has been exciting to say the least and now she has a new boyfriend, a master vampire no less, Thierry de Bennicoeur. She bumped up against him one night and they helped each other. Sarah is trying hard to be a normal vampire and get a full time job and keep her boyfriend. But it just doesn't seem to be in Sarah's future - normal that is.

Thierry was tired of living and had decided to finally just end his life, well until he found himself helping a sexy and young vampire being hunter by slayers. Now for maybe the first time in his 600 years, Thierry is alive and has to admit he is falling for the ever-senescent Sarah. But he has been in a name only marriage forever and his past just might be catching up.

Sarah and Thierry have agreed to go to her high school reunion; the last thing Sarah feels the need to do before embracing her life as a vampire. However the fates have other things in mind, first she is staked at a job interview, then she meets and is rescued by the Red Devil (a masked vampire myth), and if that isn't enough Sarah is cursed by a crazy black witch to be a nightwalker. Thierry has helped and stood by Sarah through all of this, but if the curse can't be lifted will they be able to continue. And what about the sudden reappearance of the Red Devil, does he have plans that might harm Thierry and Sarah?

Love is in the air so what could go wrong? Stakes & Stilettos brings fun loving Sarah and the solemn Thierry together. You would never believe they could be a couple, but this is a serious case of opposites attracting and falling head over heels. Sarah just wants her man and a steady job - not asking a lot. Thierry was done with everything until Sarah whirled into his world.

Stakes and Stilletto's is the 4th installment in the Immortality bites series.
It is hard to believe that all the books take place in a 10 week time frame!
Poor Sara has gotten herself into a mess this time! All She wanted to do is go to her high school reunion, with her gorgeous 600-year-old boyfriend Thierry. Add to the mix a mysterious stranger. Vampire hunters. An angry ex class mate that just happens to be a witch. And Thierry's beautiful wife..

This book is packed full of twists and turns.
I love a book that isn't predictable.

Thierry melted my heart in this one.

I cant wait for TALL, DARK & FANGSOME!! Which will sadly be the last in the series.

If you love Vampire's and you haven't already checked out this series, you should. A fun and witty read.

I absolutely loved this book! I've been a fan since the first book in the series and i can honestly say that if you liked the first three books, this one does NOT disappoint. It was prob. my favorite of the series so far. It's fast paced, witty, and enjoyable. The only downside is the cliff hanger ending which, while very nail biting ( heh biting ), is going to be hard to wait until august to find out what happens. Great read that i would, and do, recommend to any fans of the vampire genre!

I have gotta say that while I was happy with the action break in Sarah's story for Quinn's in Lady & the Vamp, I am happy to be back in the middle of Sarah Dearly's not so fangtastic immortality. Thierry is featured more in this story than in the others, with the readers getting a glimpse into his head and background. I have always liked Thierry in spite of his seeming coldness but now you get a true idea of why he does what he does, and who he is, and it makes him much more endearing as a character. Sarah gets into her usual amount of trouble, getting staked, cursed, and rescued by a masked person calling himself the Red Devil. Add in parents concerned that she is dating a married man and a ten year high school reunion and all hell is literally breaking loose.

This installment has a lot of action, great character building and awesome plot development. This story is part of a two story arc with the last in the series coming in September, so don't expect complete resolution, but it does end on a "happy for now" note that will hopefuly hold you over for the six months until Ms Rowen concludes this series. I know I am on pins and needles waiting!
