I just love this series! I would recommend it to anyone. There is romance, comedy and drama all rolled into one! Great series to read!

Got this as a freebie but I would have paid for it. I enjoyed the characters sense of humor. Will buy the entire "Love at Stake" series. I loved the fact that they had their own culture, TV shows and personalities. Sometimes I wonder if some of my friends could be Vamps! Thanks Ms. Sparks for a truly entertaining read. I now like Vampire love stories.

Shanna has been placed in Witness Protection because of a Russian Mafia hit. She thinks her new life is boring until the phone rings, her new location is discovered, and a mysterious man needs her help. You see, Shanna is a dentist and this mysterious man needs her help to put his tooth back in. She knows the Russian Mafia have found her, but he is innocent and she needs to protect him. Our mystery man is non other than Roman Draganesti, a very rich and successful scientist, who just so happens to be a vampire missing one of his fangs. Now how he lost his fang is a rather humorous/embarrassing story ... I read some of the other reviews posted and I am not sure they read the same book. This book is funny! I loved how Roman instantly knows that Shanna is special, but he is so out of practice in dealing with mortals!!

This book was great. I almost didn't get the book after looking at a review. All I can say is they obviously didn't read it or they don't like the genre. Great charachters and story. I am looking forward to reading other books in this series. Read it before you judge it.

I'd almost describe this as Twilight with a lot more sex. It's a very good book, captivating story, and is very well-written. The development is great and there are no lingering questions at the end of the book and no points where I was confused by anything written. The 2 main characters are pretty fleshed out, and the vampire back-story and related issues were well-explained. The only 2 criticisms I can offer are: 1, It did end rather abruptly in my opinion, but everything was neatly wrapped up so I can't really complain too much and there are more books in the series.. and 2, Roman the vampire doesn't seem to use any other expletive but "God's blood" and it does get a bit tedious to keep hearing that in your head over and over again. BUT even with all that "God's blood" it's still a great book and I'd definitely recommend it if you like vampire romance novels.

The book is a worthwhile read. But I think "Harriet Klausner" really needs to get a life or a job somewhere annoying someone else!! It's so unnecessary and rude to plot spoil books like she does EVERY time!! They should limit the space to 3 or 4 lines to "rate the book", then annoying biddies like Harriet Klausner can't wreck it for everybody!!!

I got this as a 'Free Friday' nookbook, and I figured why not? I knew this was going to be a one of a kind of book. I mean, read the title...read the synopsis...it's Romance for crying out loud! I got everything I expected from this story and I can't wait to read the rest.

I struggled through this book, and it was a relief when it ended. The characters need filled out more, and the pace needed slowed down. It was completely unbelievable in places -- the vampires have a cable channel, a huge, multi-national synthetic blood corporation, and annual vampire-only balls, and they are surprised that the CIA knows that they exist? It would've helped if things were taken at a slower pace and the characters had time to develop, or if the setting of the story was a little more filled out. At times the characters seem to be talking in a vacuum, with little or no sense of what the setting of the scene is, or how that makes anyone feel.

This is just the first in a fun paranormal romance series. I enjoyed the characters, the comic - thriller touch to the paranormal story of the female dentist with a contract out on her being called in to treat a vampire with a lost fang which needs to be replaced, whose father works in a secret force wanting to take out all vampires, as well as the war between two groups of vampires: those who just want to peacefully coexist with mortal humans and the traditionalists who regard humans as nothing more than dinner. As fortheporn complaints, very little physical sexual activity occurs, it is almost all a mental connection, and it is only a short side piece in the book. This book does introduce many of the characters who will be the hero/heroine of later books in the series.

This was very funny. I could not stop laughing at the characters and their situation. I know this book is in the romance section but it should be in comedy section. If one decides to read this book just remember the words "I'm thinking...".

This was a cute book and good start to the series. The thing I like the most about this series is that you hear about the characters in the books to follow so their story contiunes.

I hate to be the one to break a trend of great reviews but I did choose this book based on the reccomendations and I was disappointed. I got the sense it was trying very hard to be humorous but never quite made it all the way. While the situations held potential for laugh out loud fun they just never quite made it past mildly amusing very mild. The relationship between Shanna and Roman is hard to buy and Roman as a character is hard to believe. As vamps go, he isn't exactly cool or believable. Ultimately, the (questionably) dangerous situation they find themselves in lacks the heat and intensity that could have been the redeeming grace of this story and all the solutions are simply too easy. In the end there is no real resolution to the plot that sparked Roman and Shanna's relationship nor is any thought given to the obstacles inherent in their relationship.

This is not exactly what I expected. While I have no issues with it, I was not expecting the erotic level to be what it was... its a bit more explicit that I expected from reading the summary. My only complaint was the authors use of he term "God's blood" If I never hear that term again it will be too soon. Way over used, and not sure why it was necessary. The book's character is a vampire who used to be a monk, who still has some of the church's beliefs, why would he use this term. Seemed like just a way to (unnecessarily) show this is a vampire story. I got it for free one friday, I wouldn't have bought it, but it was a good read for a weekend.

I have to say from the title I wasn't really expecting a good read but damn! The love scenes in this book were some of the best I've ever read and I didn't expect there to be any when I started the read. There is a good mix of action and I really enjoyed the story line. I'm hoping the story gets a sequel.

I admit it, I bought this book because I thought the tittle was clever. I read an excerp and was funny so I got it. But OMG, it's so funny! The character are funny, well created and overall endearing. I admit, the part of how they met, lmao. Excellent story, I'm a devoted fan of the whole series!

So far I haven't found a vampire romance book I could put down and walk away from. This is it. I could never really get into the plot or even the characters, and the diction left something to be desired. I wouldn't recomend this to avid vamp fans, though it did have it's 'lol' moments. It was a Black Dagger Brothehood novel without the awesomeness.

Like reading a stupid soap opera written by someone in jr high. So pointless. I can't believe I bought this.

This book is Twilight meets 50 Shades. Just as in 50 Shades, there are repetitive phrases used througout the book that I found annoying. I found this to be an entertaining, light read. Nothing great, though.

Really, this is poorly written and mindless. Stupid plot, bad dialogue, etc. I am glad I only paid $.99 for this book. Misleading title, too.
