By Anna Hope VINE VOICE on May 6, 2009
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This newest addition to the Love at Stake series has deviated a bit, in a good way, from the usual formula for these books. Vanda's history unfolds as the vampire ex- Draganesti harem member is called on the carpet for her outrageousness and violent temper. Angry strippers from her club call her out in front of an entire meeting of coven members and she's sentenced to anger management. When no one steps forward to volunteer as her sponsor it's day time guard Phil who comes to rescue her from embarrassment.

Phil has secretly lusted after Vanda since he left his were-wolf pack eight years ago and became a guard in the Draganesti household. Now that he has achieved Alpha status and she no longer is his charge, he has every intention of getting in Vanda's infamous purple catsuit.But when a disgruntle stripped can't let things go and attempts to kill Vanda several times, Phil realizes that what he feels for her hasn't just been lust but love. Determined to help her through her anger as well as keep her breathing at night, he tunnels into her past and the atrocities that befell her family during Poland's part of WWII.

Eventually Vanda realizes her love for Phil but fears losing him like she has everyone else mortal. But with her fear of were-wolves how can he admit that he is a powerful one that won't die on her for four or five centuries?

This book has tragedy as victims are taken from the Vamps in the war with the Malcontents which amps up to a new level. But it also has an immense amount of humor. Dr. Phang, aka Phineas, is occasionally a bit annoying in the other books but he's hilarious here as he plays off jokes about Phil's wolfy nature. This books tone was a bit different but highly enjoyable. Still a quick read but really a good one!

I absolutely love this series and this latest book is a welcomed addition. I like the world that has been created within and I am glad to see some more of the shifters and how they fit in as more than just daytime bodyguards. The school is progressing nicely in the background as well. I anticipate it will become the focus in a future book.

Just like all the other books in the series you will find witty humor, innuendos and smooth written love scenes. The book reads quickly and I admit I cried at the end. Good tears of course!

Vanda has always been a favorite of mine and Phil was the perfect Alpha male to tame and sooth her wildcat spirit.

I just love these books. They are filled with humor, excitement, throw in a little mystery and adventure. Fantastic reads I have all of 1-6 so far and planning on getting the rest. All the characters crossover to the stories. Lovely reading.

I absolutely adore the Love at Stake series! Kerrelyn is one of my favorite Vampire authors, thanks to a recommendation from my other favorite Vampire Author, Lynsay Sands. I own all her Love at Stakes books and can't wait for more to arrive. Thank you, Kerrelyn, for taking me away to a fantasy world that completely takes my mind off the stress of daily life.

OK, I read this book already annoyed. I didn't like Vanda from the previous books. I also prefer reading about a sexy male vamp. I, like Vanda dislike werewolves. So I was having a hard time enjoying the book in the begining. I will admit, there was a lot more sex in this novel, and the sex scenes were a little more edgier. The story was lacking in the begining. Vanda continued to annoy me, but I did like Phil the werewolf. It was nice to hear about some of the older forgotten characters like Austin, Darcy and Maggie. The author again had the Female refer the her hunk as a "rascal" Which as I mentioned in other reviews really annoys me. The author then introduced a ton of new werewolf characters and, surprise surprise, are all offered a job with the security company (predictable) I was so fed up with the book but then the fight scene happens, and it turned around for me. There was action, suspense with Dougal and Robby, and a very surprise ending. So I bumped it up to 4 stars.

First off I so love this series!! This book is another great installment in this series, Phil and Vanda are great together. I so loved Vanda's snappy attitude and found myself laughing at points in this one! The action was wonderful and kept me turning the pages, I finished this one in 2 settings!! Thank you Mrs. Sparks for creating such an amazing series, and for sharing it with us your readers!!!!!!

'Forbidden Nights with a Vampire' is standard fare reading - it's enjoyable, it has a variety of characters (vampire, werewolf, mortal) and action here and there to spice up the story. However this reader finds that the series has become perhaps a little bland and predictable.

This story focuses on Vanda Barkowski, one of Roman Draganesti's former harem. She's a relatively young vampire who seems prickly and tries to keep people away. Her harmless flirting with mortal day guard Phil Jones was just something that happened. But Phil is now back in her life and seems to have grown rather more forceful and difficult to ignore. When it seems as though Vanda's life may be in danger, Phil wants to protect her; but he has a secret which Vanda may not be able to cope with, as well as rules with regard to fraternising with people he is guarding. But can he help to unpeel Vanda's prickly nature and her short temper, and can they play their part in the fight against the Malcontents.

Phil and Vanda's relationship in this story felt rather rushed. I was also unsure what the author's take was on Phil's breaking the rules of fraternisation with those he is guarding - he managed to resist Vanda for years previously but now can't see to do so, even though he has two honourable reasons for not having a relationship with her. That aside, the overall story continued much in the vein of the other books, with a romance intermingled with attacks by the malcontents. Although I enjoyed this book I also found it rather lightweight and feel that the earlier books in the story had a bit more 'bite'.
