Nothing on earth can make this vampire fall in love . . .
After 499 years of existence, Connor Buchanan has arrived at an inescapable conclusion: he is a cold-hearted SOB. He's been watching his friends—those poor romantic fools—plummet off the cliff into love like a dazed herd of sheep. But not Connor. He knows that love leads to nothing but heartache.
Until Marielle . . .
She is an angel cast down from heaven for disobedience. Trapped in mortal form, she finds a protector in Connor, a Scottish vampire haunted by a dark past. Marielle hopes to heal his broken heart and earn her way back home, but suddenly she has these . . . feelings. This strange yet pleasant physical yearning—for a vampire! Is this the work of a demon luring her into hell, or has this angel found heavenly bliss?

As normal Kerrelyn made me laugh throughout the book. But she also made me cry not far into the book, if you have been following the series you will know why I cried when you get to it in the book.
I love the sarcastic humor in all of Kerrelyn's books =)
I can't wait for Gregori's story to be told!
Marielle is an angel who has just lost her wings for disobeying AGAIN, Connor finds her and tries to save her. Only after Shanna touches her at Romatech they realize she is not just any angel but perhaps the angel of death.
Connor has never seen such a beautiful woman and while he waits for decisions from Roman and Angus at Howard's cabin, he wonders how he will be able to keep his hands off this angelic being.
Being human is very odd for Marielle and caring for her is way different for Connor.
Good things happen in Connor's story but also a few bad things. We see a few old characters becoming new vampires and we lose an old friend.
For first time readers, this book will be confusing. The author does not provide even the brief back plot that she does in all her other books and you will have a hard time following this book if you are not familiar with the characters from previous books.
For fans of the series, this is going to be a huge disappointment for so many reasons.
Many fans have been waiting for Connor Buchanan's story throughout the series. While the premise of the book has promise, character development is a huge problem in this book. Marielle, our heroine, never became fully developed or important throughout the story. An even bigger problem along this line is the reaction of the other characters to Connor throughout the book. The reactions of Roman and Robby to Connor and his plight are unbelievable and just poor writing when compared to their characters in previous plots.
While this book has a bit of customary humor, the jokes are typical and all ones we have heard before from other characters. There was very little original humor in this book and the dialogue was simple and boring in parts.
Our heroine, Marielle, while likable, was never fully developed as a real love interest. She and Connor did not have common ties as Spark's characters almost always do, and it made her unreachable.
One of the biggest problems of this whole book was the demise of Casimir. For those of you who do not follow the series, Casimir is the villain of the series. He manages to elude capture and certain death in every book and has been well developed as a villain.Read more ›
Love at Stake is my favorite series of books. I've read the entire series a couple times, and go back to it when I can't find anything else to read. But this one seemed like a giveaway. Like something that could have been a between book short story, or filler for another book. Remember Roman's book? And Jean-Luc's? And Angus's? Jack's? And the rest? Those were amazing stories, full of tension between the leads. This one pales by comparison to those. There no sexual tension between these two. The fell too easily together. I like Connor, and I liked the angel. I just wish there could have been more to their story.
The malcontent story, as said in another review, was very anti-climatic, and while I love the Corky aspect, I don't love how the Casimir story ends, and am not excited to see how that unfolds.
I'm sorry Kerrelyn, I never thought I'd write a review under 5 stars for this series, and again, for any other author or series, this would have been just fine. For this one, I'm disappointed. I'll just think of it as something to tide me over until the next great story comes. For which I still can not wait! Much love!
See below for a list in order of the books.
I just loved this book. If you havent read any of the others in the series no big deal you can easily follow up. There are many people from previous books in here like all the others, some neat follow ups on some of the couples from previous books.
The original couple is in here a bit, Shanna and Roman. Big things happen for me so its really a must read book if you are a fan of the series.
This book is about Connor. A almost 500 year old Scottish vampire. In the vamp world 500 is thought to be when a vampire has a mid-life crisis. But for Connor his whole life has been a long crisis. Lets put it plain and simple, Connor feels he damned.
If you remember him from previous books he has always been the first one to condemn a couple and be-rate it.
But what many dont know is that Connor has many secrets that are just tearing him apart.
Marielle is an Angel of Death. Or a deliverer as they preferred to be called. Her job has been for centuries to come and collect people souls. Marielle has a big heart and this job is very hard at times and she has often broken the rules. Well she broke the rules one to many times and has been banished from heaven and her wings were taken from her.
Luck have it Connor happen to be at the right place at the right time to come and help Marielle. Shortly after he vows to get her back into heaven.
But can he keep that promise? Marielle has been banished to earth or sent to save Connor?
This book is great, and very funny at times, I have found myself laughing. (I love the Ice cream parlor part!Read more ›
