LOVE AT STAKE is exactly what it sounds like – a rather cheesy paranormal romance featuring a vampire. So long as you keep that in mind, you’ll be rewarded with a sexy, slightly brooding hero, a spunky heroine, and a lot of fun sexual tension. LOVE AT STAKE is the perfect little escape for a few hours of guilty pleasure fun.
Having just come off the Midnight Liaisons series and looking for more paranormal matchmaking, I stumbled on LOVE AT STAKE. The plotlines of LOVE AT STAKE and BEAUTY DATES THE BEAST are similar – sole human employed by a paranormal matchmaking company is forced to date a supernatural being. But that is pretty much where the similarities ended. LOVE AT STAKE is fun and lighthearted, and the most drama keeping Lucian and Abbey apart are their own insecurities and prejudices. This is pretty much pure romance novel with the relationship taking center stage.
For that to work out, Abbey and Lucien had to be an excellent match -and happily, they are. I always worry about centuries old vampires falling in love with younger women, but in this case it didn’t seem ridiculous. Abbey is fun and smart, not a meek pushover, and the sparks between the two of them are obvious. Generally my favorite parts of a romance novel are the scenes with the hero and heroine together, and LOVE AT STAKE was no exception. Luckily, Abbey and Lucian were together a lot, so there was plenty of that for me to enjoy.
So if you’re looking for a fun, quick, Valentine’s Day read, with a sweet happily ever after ending, LOVE AT STAKE will totally satisfy that craving.
However there is just one tiny problem.....her adopted father Lucien Redgrave. An ancient, he is basically considered the king of all the East Coast Vampires and he doesn't believe that science can make up for instinct and fate. To prove that the service is a waste of time he agrees to let Melissa to join on one condition... that Abbey sign him up first and personally find his mate in one month.
Abbey reluctantly agrees and attempts to bring him into the 21st century by updating his wardrobe and hairstyle. Lucian goes along with her requests but he has an ulterior motive, he wants Abbey and has no plans of giving any of his dates a chance. Abbey is attracted to Lucian as well but refuses to give her heart to someone who considers humans as playthings.
Lucian pursued Abbey relentlessly, and like a true alpha male he refuses to see what she truly is to him until it's almost to late. Abbey is stubborn, almost too much so. She believes that Lucien considers her inferior because she's human. She's feisty and doesn't take crap from him. She brings color and life to Lucien's rigid and ordered world which he doesn't know how to handle at times. The chemistry between these two is explosive! And to spice things up even further there is an intriguing love triangle going on with a yummy werewolf.Read more ›
My very first book by this author and just where has she been hiding? Oh my I just have to search out her work because this book is simply fabulous! Yes I've read vampire stories before and even a series about paranormal dating services but this book was such a sexy fun read that I didn't stop reading it until id finished and yes that meant I stayed up until three in the morning but it was so worth it. If you enjoy paranormal romance and enjoy reading about a strong alpha male clashing with a woman who gives him a run for his money then get this book!
Ripe with sexual tension this was a very hot book to read but it's also humorous and definitely a winner. The writing is excellent and flows so well. Loved it and I can't wait to read more from Ms Davies Recommended
The lone human working for Fated Match, a supernatural dating agency, Abby takes on Lucian Redgrave, the oldest vampire on the east coast in order secure his vampire daughter as a client. She must find Lucian’s perfect match within one month or he won’t let his daughter use the agency. While she can’t deny the chemistry between Lucian and herself, risking her heart isn’t part of the plan.
This steady to fast paced plot is full of drama, romance and humor that keep the reader entertained throughout. The author brings the story to life with vivid descriptions, intense details, and compelling characters that are easily related to and believable. The emotions and personalities are conveyed with intensity and the reader can understand their motivations and get caught up in their story.
The attraction between Lucian and Abby is clearly explosive and the sex scenes scorch the reader with red hot passion. The relationship has some major issues and the author does a great job of describing them and emotions so that the reader can empathize with them. And to spice things up a bit, Lucian has some competition vying for Abby’s attention as well.
The author has created a wonderful story that has the reader chuckling in a quite a few places, cheering the heroine on and wanting to slap a couple of good looking knuckleheaded men upside their heads. It also has fantastic supporting characters that leave the reader wanting to know more.
I found the story very enjoyable and once I started reading I couldn’t put it down until I had finished the last page.Read more ›
