From the Back Cover

Nothing on earth can make this vampire fall in love . . .

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?

About the Author

A former tap dancer and high school French teacher, New York Times bestselling author Kerrelyn Sparks has always searched for creative ways to express herself. A prolific reader since childhood, she discovered that writing her own stories provided the ideal way to combine her loves of comedy, language, and history. And what a relief that the voices in her head have led to a paycheck instead of a padded room! A native Texan, Kerrelyn lives with her husband in the Greater Houston area.

I fell in love with Kerrelyn Sparks and love reading her books.
Redheads Review It Better
Like something that could have been a between book short story, or filler for another book.
I've been reading the series for a long time always anticipated the next book!!!

I LOVED it!!! Grouchy Conner finally gets his mate! I loved Connor and Marille together.

As normal Kerrelyn made me laugh throughout the book. But she also made me cry not far into the book, if you have been following the series you will know why I cried when you get to it in the book.

I love the sarcastic humor in all of Kerrelyn's books =)

I can't wait for Gregori's story to be told!

Connor has been getting crankier and crankier with each vamp that has fallen in love. He had secrets from his past that kept him locked in the dark hole of his past always pulling him down further. He also has been disobeying orders, such as now when he teleports off by himself to find Casimir instead of waiting for help like he was told.

Marielle is an angel who has just lost her wings for disobeying AGAIN, Connor finds her and tries to save her. Only after Shanna touches her at Romatech they realize she is not just any angel but perhaps the angel of death.

Connor has never seen such a beautiful woman and while he waits for decisions from Roman and Angus at Howard's cabin, he wonders how he will be able to keep his hands off this angelic being.

Being human is very odd for Marielle and caring for her is way different for Connor.

Good things happen in Connor's story but also a few bad things. We see a few old characters becoming new vampires and we lose an old friend.

The "Love at Stake" series has been a great series up until this point. While I have enjoyed some of the books and characters better than others, Ms. Sparks writing has, until now, been consistent, funny and interesting.
For first time readers, this book will be confusing. The author does not provide even the brief back plot that she does in all her other books and you will have a hard time following this book if you are not familiar with the characters from previous books.
For fans of the series, this is going to be a huge disappointment for so many reasons.
Many fans have been waiting for Connor Buchanan's story throughout the series. While the premise of the book has promise, character development is a huge problem in this book. Marielle, our heroine, never became fully developed or important throughout the story. An even bigger problem along this line is the reaction of the other characters to Connor throughout the book. The reactions of Roman and Robby to Connor and his plight are unbelievable and just poor writing when compared to their characters in previous plots.
While this book has a bit of customary humor, the jokes are typical and all ones we have heard before from other characters. There was very little original humor in this book and the dialogue was simple and boring in parts.
Our heroine, Marielle, while likable, was never fully developed as a real love interest. She and Connor did not have common ties as Spark's characters almost always do, and it made her unreachable.
One of the biggest problems of this whole book was the demise of Casimir. For those of you who do not follow the series, Casimir is the villain of the series. He manages to elude capture and certain death in every book and has been well developed as a villain.

I know I am probably in the minority here, but it was difficult for me to get through this book. Many of the paranormal romances out these days tend to rely on the "love at first sight" type of storytelling. And that's exactly what happens in this book. This is probably one of my biggest pet peeves. It just seems like an easy out for the author. And it deprives me of the best part of a romance, seeing how the hero and heroine get together and fall in love. Anyhow, I also found the story a bit too sweet with too much , what I call, rhapsodizing by the main characters about how wonderful, lovely, etc. they are. I guess my tastes tend to lean toward more edgier and exciting romances like those written by Larissa Ione. IMO, her Demonica series is much better than this one.

I'm just going to get to the point. This was a cute book. That is the reason I say my heart is broken. The dialogue was funny at times and this angel is cute, but not what I pictured a strong angel to be. This story spands seven days, and I understand the pull of love, but the interaction between the two characters was not as hot or as sizzling as the other books Sparks writes. The love scene is disappointing, the Vamp/Malcontents fight is anti-climatic, and the demon/angel struggle was a dud. Don't get me wrong I liked the book, but that's what is such a disappointment I LIKED it and didn't go wild crazy in love with it. It also bothered me that the entire time Connor is mentally chastizing himself saying he is a cold hearted SOB, which felt more like self pity to me, only to turn around and go after the angel with little, if any resistance. Sparks has a hard time delivering on this book, but that won't stop me from reading anything else she writes. She is my favorite author still, thats why I decided to give the book four stars.

UPDATE: I don't know how many of you go onto K. Sparks website, but apparently our author has decided not to end this series, and the next story will be Grogori. I am confused how she is going to continue with this series, since all her main and bigtime characters are already married and having babies. I hope she does not drag this series out. I really hate it when authors diviate from the main story line. She would really BREAK MY HEART if she did that.
