Overview

He's a vampire from the big city . . .

Phineas McKinney thought New York City was tough, until he was attacked by Malcontents—evil vampires who consider mortals to be snacks. Saved by the good vampires, Phin swore to devote his now undead life to stopping the Malcontents. He's got his job cut out for him when word comes that their enemy may be hiding in Wyoming. What does a city boy like him know about horses and campfires? Good thing he's got Brynley Jones with him . . . if only she didn't hate every vampire on earth.

She's a werewolf princess . . .

Bryn believes vampires are seductive and charming, and that makes them dangerous. So she's more than a little annoyed about teaming up with Phin, even if he is the only bloodsucker able to make her inner wolf purr. But as they hunt down the new leader of the Malcontents, danger threatens . . . and Phineas and Brynley discover a passion that will rock the foundation of their supernatural world.

    The silly almost stereotypical dialogue almost turned me away.

    Overall, i enjoyed the book. I have read many of her other books, so i could understand and enjoy the world she has created. The dialogue between phineaus and his brother was horrible in the beginning. His dialect seemed to be taken from some cheesy low budget movie with "ghetto" slang. The use of the names Leroy and Lamont was silly. Sparks tried too hard characterizing black males. She made them seem almost stereotypes. While as a black female, I do appreciate a black hero as the protagonist. But, less slang would have made the book better. Overall, the love story was worth it.

    Ok but not great

    Was an ok book. The ending was so ridiculous that i had to deduct another star. I dont want to reveal too much but how could he be the first vampire bitten by a werewolf? It was a silly plot device.

    Silly but fun and entertaining

    When i first started reading this book, i thought it was kind of silly and kind of cheesy. I imagine Phins brother as some reject from Jersey Shore. The vampire tv network was also kind of silly along with the vamp tv shows. I thought they were pointless to add and keep talking about the real vampire housewives.
    The book does get alot better as you go along and you end up getting sucked into the whole story. The plot was pretty good as well as the background of the characters and their description. Although bringing in the shifters like the were-bear and the were-panther were pointless and didn't need to be in the story. The author could have made them either wolves or vamps.
    The ending was pretty good and the author can take the next book into alot of different paths.
    Even though i say some of the book was silly, it was very fun to read and i still could not put the book down and the author did keep my attention and wanting me to keep reading. I will definantly get the next book in the series.

    Hmmm

    I've read all the books in this series and enjoyed them. This one was just horrible. After all this time of trying to get thru it I'm only on page 81. I finally give up, there was a really bad storyline and the writing was just as bad. Sometimes it is better to end a series while it's good. In this case it was 1 to many. Not worth the paper it was written on.

    I read this book and it wasn't as good as the oAnd the ther book

    I read this book and it wasn't as good as the oAnd the ther books. The chemistry between the two characters really?? The plot really was not that good at all like the other books in her series. I woudn't recommend this book to anyone who is a fan of this series and don't waste your money on this one!

    This was a fantastic book. I loved every second of it i read tehe whole thing in two days because i couldnt put it down. Some say it was slow in the beginning but really it wasnt. It was such a touching book that i wanted to cry, laugh, and aww at the whole thing. I cant wait for the next book called wild about you to come out. I love the whole series. I totally recommend this book. Its a great read.

    Phineas McKinney, aka Dr. Phang, The Love Doctor is our hero in

    Phineas McKinney, aka Dr. Phang, The Love Doctor is our hero in book 12 of the Love at Stake series. After failing to attract a mate in previous books it’s his turn to take the spotlight. As head of security for MacKay S & I he’s on a mission to capture Corky, the Queen of the Malcontents. But chasing her into Wyoming can be a bit difficult for the Dr. Phang on his own.
    Brynley, who Phineas refers to as Snout Face is chosen to be his helpmate during this mission. She detests every vampire and certainly Phineas with his attitude is no exception. However, he does send her motor running. Brynley finds herself captured and returned to her father which means a slow death for her.
    Now Phineas find himself with two missions. He must capture Corky and he must rescue Brynley from her father and the husband he has chosen for her.
    I love the Love at Stake series. Kerrelyn never disappoints the readers with each new installment. There is always action, fun, and great new characters introduced. The backwoods were-bear, Digger and his helmet wearing dog Jake are my favorite new characters!
    As usual Kerrelyn has set into motion changes with our characters that will be interesting to follow. I can’t wait to see what happens with Phineas and Brynley in future installments of the Love at Stake series!

    Wanted: Undead or Alive by Kerrelyn Sparks Love At Stake Series

    Wanted: Undead or Alive by Kerrelyn Sparks
    Love At Stake Series Book 12
    The Love Doctor finally gets his side of the story told. It seems everyone around Phineas is falling in love...accept for the Love Doctor himself. Oh the women want him and his uniqueness until the next thing comes along but there is no love in the air for the doctor. And the one person who makes him think of the blue sky he'll never see again every time he looks into her eyes...well she's a bit furry and has a deep hatred for the fanged community. When Corky decides to take her show into hiding and making herself Queen of the Malcontents...Phineas and Brynley are thrown together to hunt her down in the Jone's old stomping grounds, Wyoming.

    Brynley loved watching the commercials with Phineas. She could listen to his sexy voice and look at that sculpted body. He was always calling her Snout Face so she knew he would never care for a werewolf. Not that they could ever make it anyway. Vampires used people and seduced them. And her father would hunt down and kill anyone he didn't approve of. When she was needed to go protect Phineas during the daytime and help him search the area for Corky during the night...was it too close for comfort and or comfortable closeness? You'll have to read the book to find out the rest of the story. Brynley is the twin sister to Phil, Forbidden Nights with a Vampire.

    I enjoyed this book as I have with the previous 11. I like that each book brings back the characters and as in this book...we get to see some updates in the couples lives. Being we have seen Dr. Phang and all his antics since the time he was rescued from the Malcontents in Angus and Emma's story, Be Still My Vampire Heart, it was nice seeing him in his own tale and hearing about his past. Kerrelyn writes in such a way that the characters come to life. You can feel their anxiety, sadness and desires.
    *Contains sexual situations.
