New York Times bestselling author Kerrelyn Sparks delivers the exciting conclusion in the Love at Stake series, where a Marine-turned-vampire finds love with the shifter princess forbidden to him...

Russell wakes from a coma to find he's become a vampire. Now he has a thirst for revenge. Determined to hunt down the master vampire who turned him, he's used to working alone . . . until he meets Jia. She is after the same vampire for murdering her parents and insists she can help Russell on this mission. Reluctantly, he agrees, and sets up some ground rules:

Rule #1: Their partnership is strictly business. If he holds her a little too close . . . if she looks at him with those exotic eyes . . . well, that has to stop.

Rule #2: He's in charge. Jia isn't used to taking orders and questions every move he makes. So he stops her the only way he knows how.

Rule #3: Don't fall in love. But the kiss that was supposed to quiet her awakens something else in him . . . something forbidden. Because Jia is engaged. To someone else.

First Thought when Finished: Crouching Tiger,Forbidden Vampire by Kerrelyn Sparks was a beautifully written and fantastically FUN send off to a series that has made me smile many times over the last few years. Russell and Jia were another great example of love conquering all. While I was sad to see the series come to an end, I was happy with the way it wrapped up and hold out hope that some day we may see characters from this world again.

Audio Thoughts:

Narrated By Enrique Morales / Length: 9 hrs and 2 mins

Enrique did an EXCELLENT job with the pacing and Russell’s voice. In fact, I liked the slight cowboy drawl a whole bunch. The other accents were handled with great care too. Jia’s voice took a bit to get used too but once that happened I was totally on board with this audiobook. Overall a downright pretty good job!

  1. #16….eep. I am glad it was strong. I need a new vampire series. I will add this series for consideration to my list. I am slowly knocking out series that have been on my list 4-ever πŸ™‚

  2. I love it when characters have something that destinguish them among others! I’ve tried audio books but they’re not really my thing but, woah, it seems like you love them very much. I ever tried my favorite series (TMI) in audio book but no unfortunately πŸ™

  3. Here is yet another series I have been meaning to try over the years and I know I have a couple of the first books on my kindle. I can’t believe it is now over. At least it ended on a high note.
