Olivia's packing list:
2. Bathing suit
FBI psychologist Olivia Sotiris was looking for a cool ocean breeze, sand between her toes, and a break from her crazy, chaotic, and sometimes all-too-dangerous life. But when she escaped to the small Greek island of Patmos, all she got were meddling grandmothers trying to marry her off. Can't they see that none of the men around interests her—except Robby MacKay?
Robby's packing list:
1. Synthetic blood
2. More synthetic blood
3. Jogging clothes
(even vamps have to stay in shape!)
Robby needs to cool off, too, since all he can think about is revenge on the Malcontent bloodsuckers who once held him captive—but then he meets Olivia, the beauty with wild curls and a tempting smile. When a deadly criminal from a case back home tracks her down, Robby will have to save her life—along with giving her a first time she'll never forget . . .

Olivia works for the FBI and is somehow being stalked by a serial killer that is in prison. Olivia is also taking some forced time off from work at her grandmothers house in Greece. She arrives 3 weeks before Robby is ready to return to New York. Both her and her grandmother have the ability to read peoples emotions and can tell when someone is lying. Neither one of them can read Robby. Although Olivia's attraction to Robby is immediate, not being able to read his emotions both thrill and frighten her.
This book was not as humorous as the prior books in the Love at Stake series however I still found myself giggling and grinning often. As always, the support characters are a treat and add immensely to the story. Carlos was a hoot. Personally, I loved all the "catty" comments! I also enjoy the way the vampires tease each other relentlessly.
The mystery/suspense part was a little dark with the serial killer. Kind of creepy actually. Not having Casmir as the main focus was a relief. I mean really, how many times can this Casmir guy continue to get away before the readers give up hope? The romance was on the back-burner for too much of the story. I would have enjoyed more Robby & Olivia time. Overall I enjoyed the book and absolutely LOVE this series.Read more ›
Olivia Sotiris, a pyschologist FBI consultant and an empath, arrives in Patmos to visit her grandmother. She's also taking some time off work and getting away from a frightening situation with a criminal Otis Crump. Her grandmother is a matchmaker, hoping to find her a husband. Olivia explains she's not interested in dating--it never works out well since she can tell when men are lying. Olivia sees Robby jogging on the beach, and gets a close, admiring look at his physique through her grandmother's patio telescope. She's embarrassed when he catches her in the act, but he's gone by the time her grandmother returns. He's the most beautiful man she's ever seen. When she finally meets Robby in person, she's shocked that she can't sense his feelings. Their courtship is sweet and funny, as he competes against all the young men her grandmother keeps inviting over. Things heat up as Otis continues to stalk Olivia and the war against the Malcontents continues.
For the most part, this was a fun, light paranormal romance. Most of the characters were appealing. I especially enjoyed Olivia's grandmother--she was a hoot! Where the story went off track was with only one brief suggestion from Harrison, Olivia became convinced that Robby is working with Otis.Read more ›
