Editorial Reviews

Review

This wonderful addition to the Love at Stake series focuses on the hero shapeshifter, his family and history, with the vampires taking a backseat. Sparks offers up a fantastic, entertaining story with plenty of old faces and some quite intriguing new ones, all with their own unique powers. (RT Book Reviews)

From the Back Cover

Handsome Howard . . .
Hunky Howard . . .
Hot Howard . . .

It's not every day that Elsa Bjornberg feels delicate, 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 were 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 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.

I will admit I am a total fan of the Love at Stake series by Kerrelyn Sparks. So when I saw that she had a new book coming out and it was going to be about Howard the bear shifter, I squealed! I just loved Howard and I knew his story would be a good one!

I was right! It is a sweet and quirky story that makes for such an enjoyable read. There were a couple of slow spots but overall the plot was very interesting and entertaining. I really love Howard and was so happy we could get to know more about him and where he came from. Elsa, I think, really rocked as a heroine. There was just something about her I really liked.

While Wild About You is not my favorite book in this series, it is still a wonderful addition. Over all it is a fun shifter romance that has a great plot and even more interesting characters. It is a fast read and could be read as a standalone. I do recommend reading the rest of the Love At Stake series just because they are all good paranormal romance stories.

First of all this is the Love at Stake series, it is not meant to be Masterpiece Theater, it is simple and fun, plots that while many times intricate they are always enjoyable and keep moving along a consistent timeline that makes the series easy to follow but does assume you read most if not all of the preceding books. Reading this series in order makes it a lot more fun. This book is the story of Howard the were-bear that has been in every novel in this series and finally will get a chance at his own HEA although there are several roadblocks in the way, not the least of these are some gun toting Aunts of his intended that are not happy about Howard in the least. The story vacillated between serious situations, a bit of tragedy and a few bursts of humor. All in all a great reading and a worthy addition to this series. Highly recommended and 4+ Star reading.

Wild About You - Kerrelyn Sparks
Love At Stake Series Book 13
Howard Barr has been in the picture since the first book. The big man who was usually eating bear paw donuts. Just there in the background. Now we get to see the inner workings of the big guy and what makes him tick. Some things from his past must be settled before he can look to the future, a future that has just turned much brighter.

Elsa Bjornberg's life is about to change when her TV show gets a call to remodel a house in the Adirondack Mountains. Something is calling to her the further they get into the forest. Almost like she belongs there. And when she meets the handsome man who is actually taller than she is....all seems good. That is until his touch ignites something in her and not in a good way.

Kerrelyn also gives us a look inside Shanna's head. She has been a vampire for three months now and we see her struggles as a mother who dies each day and has no control when it comes to protecting her children during those hours. This book has some very unique incidents that are so different from any of her other books. Once again showing the authors unique abilities in writing an intriguing story that holds the readers attention from beginning to end.

I'm a big fan of Kerrelyn Sparks. She does a great job of blending humor, passion, romance,conflict and excitement in her Love at Stakes Series. I've read just about all of them. She's one of the few paranormal vampire writing authors left in this genre that I still read, having abandoned my former favorites, Christine Feehan and Sherrelyn Kenyon because they've just gone off the deep end and totally lost what made me like their writing in the first place...

That said, this book in the Love at Stake series just didn't do it for me. Why? I just didn't like the heroine. Elsa is a 6 plus foot tall Amazon like woman who can rip out cabinets with her bare hands, yet she has the heart and soul of a coward. Throughout the first part of the book, she is so scary. So afraid of 'what might happen,. Here she is faced with overwhelming evidence of a man who loves her but she acts like a blubbering spineless broad. She's so focused on Howard being 'special' that she totally ignores the 'weirdness about herself and her own family. As I was reading it, I kept thinking I wish Howard could have fallen for someone else. There was nothing about her inner spirit that was attractive at all!. She's too scary to stand up to her interfering aunts. In fact, her reasoning just didn't add up. On the one hand she could accept certain 'weirdness such as being teleported by Tino and totally overlook it, but when it came to Howard she freaked out. She also remained oblivious to her special talents.
I dunno. I have to like the heroine in order to get into the book and I found nothing likable about Elsa's character. I've liked the previous heroines in Spark's books. They had guts, spine, character, they stood up for themselves.

Howard....Howard, lost for words. So loved this one, for some reason this story had a different feel then the rest of the stories..could be because it had been a while. Enjoyed the flow of the writing style. Who would have thought a berserker, had humor and sexy arrogance. Howard and Ellie was perfect for each other and because of their love for each other the curse finally done. Rhett was one evil ?&!
It was great to spend some time with Tino, he captured me the moment he was born.
