Editorial Reviews

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.

Customer Reviews

Loved the story, loved the characters especially Ian.
Lady Song
I had my doubts about reading this latest book in Kerrelyn Sparks' Love at Stake series since I normally do not like vampires in a romantic comedy.
Kelley Hartsell
GOOD story, romance,action, villain, GOOD guys, and fun to read.

We've watched Ian McPhie physically grow up over the last several books of this series and now he's headed home to Dragonesti's New York townhouse to make it all pay off in his pursuit of love with his perfect vampire woman. But what he finds when he gets home is that none of his friends recognize him, he's outgrown his coffin, woman are sure he's a 500 year old virgin, and the new guard who's supposed to be watching over him during the day is not Tony but Toni- a female who sets his blood to boiling!

Toni didn't plan to help her best friend like this. she thought she'd pop down to Central Park, prove vampires didn't exist and then go help her sick friend. Instead she got snacked on in the park by Malcontents, or at least that's what Connell the vampire who saved her calls the bad vampires. Impressed by her fighting skills he gave her the options of either A. Having her memory erased or B. Work for them as a day time guard since they are currently short staffed during a vampire war. Toni chooses the later so that she can maybe prove her friend isn't crazy, that vamps do exist. But her proof seems laughable and her luck goes from bad to worse when her friend ends up institutionalized and her boss Ian starts watching her...not to mention the no fraternization clause she signed with the company and that if the two of them are caught lip-locked her memory is history anyway!

Everything is complicated by the Russian vamps taking a sudden interest in Ian, coupled by his internet love hunt for the perfect vampire making him the most talked about vampire in the nation. Women and assassins are knocking in his door and somehow he ends up on vampire television harassed by the biggest gossip of them all.

If your a fan of vampire romances then its safe to say you've thought about what it would be like to be immortal. Its not a big leap to then assume you've considered the perfect age to be for eternity. I have and one thing that I imagine would suck (no pun intended)would be to be too old, an age which is subjective but still... I've never ever thought about how the opposite - being too young forever - would be awful.

Kerrilyn Sparks brilliantly worked this into a story that made me sympathize with the hero from the start, even though he hadn't been tortured for years. I was ecstatic that he wasn't overidden with guilt over a really stupid hang-up (his hang-up is justified). Is there really anyway a vampire who looks like he's fifteen can get a decent meal without a little bit of pleasurable mind mojo? Keep reading but beware that some of the plot is revealed and I may have gotten carried away.

Towards the begining of ALL I WANT FOR CHRISTMAS I thought this book was going to be that really rare book that just makes you giddy with happiness after you finish.

Yes, it was rife with cliches. Good vampires verses bad vampires with the ignorant humans as casualties in the middle. But for a while it was like Sparks was the first to have written such a plot. Ian, the hero, is a 400 + year old vampire who was stuck at the age of 15 for all that time (until very recently). This is something almost anyone would complain about but not Ian. Anyways, with some powerful help from genius Roman (the hero from the first Love at Stake book) he has managed to age 12 years in 12 days. And boy, did he become a handsome man. Of course, Ian doesn't know how delicious he is because in his world vampires cannot see their own reflections.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Ian MacPhie is ready, willing, and able to find himself a woman. Just back from Texas where he spent twelve days taking the magical vampire stay awake drug, Ian finally looks twelve years older. Ian is very happy with the results because he was made a vampire when he was fifteen years old and so for the last four hundred years he has not aged one day. When he wanted to spend time with a woman, Ian had to place them under an enchantment spell so that they didn't realize he looked like a minor. He has been thinking about his life and has decided to start looking for his soul mate - the one woman that completes him. Enlisting the aid of a close female friend, Ian lets her sign him up for an online dating service. When he finally goes to the townhouse in which he spends his days sleeping, he expects to meet Tony, the new bodyguard. Only, Tony is ACTUALLY Toni, and she is not thrilled to be guarding an irreverent flirt such as Ian MacPhie.

Toni Davis has an agenda. When her friend was attacked by rogue vampires and subsequently reported the crime, everyone thought she was crazy. Everyone except Toni and Toni promised her friend she would find irrefutable proof that vampires exist. So, when Toni is attacked by the same rogues and is in turn rescued by a handsome kilt wearing avenger with long teeth, she jumps on the chance to guard them during the day so she can find the proof she needs. She doesn't expect to come into contact with one so annoyingly sexy or blatantly handsome. Ian MacPhie makes her heart jump start and beat just a bit faster - whether in desire or in anger. All Toni knows is that there is something about Ian that she can't live without.

Kerrelyn Sparks never fails to make me laugh. Never.
