RT Rating

This addition to Sparks' vampire series is action packed, with drama, humor and wonderfully personable characters. The heroine is strong and independent, and the alpha hero respects that. Previous characters from the series makes appearances, which creates a greatly appreciated thread of continuity.

Psychic Emma Wallace is out to get revenge for her parents' death by vampires. She joins the CIA's Stake-Out team and, unbeknownst to them, becomes a slayer. Then she meets Angus MacKay, a Scottish warrior, vampire and the owner of a security company sent to stop her. Too bad, because Emma finds herself attracted to Angus. But as she learns more about the vampire society, she desperately wants to believe in good vampires, even if she and Angus are marked for death by the vampire Malcontents. (Avon, Apr., 384 pp., $5.99)

Be Still My Vampire Heart

Submitted by Robin in PA on December 29, 2010 - 10:40pm.

Emma Wallace, a member of the CIA's stake-out team, spends her free time trolling Central Park for vampires. Since her parents were killed by the undead several years ago, Emma has believed the only good vampire is a dead vampire. Scottish Vampire Angus MacKay has been asked by his boss to find the vampire-slayer and stop him before a war breaks out. Angus is shocked to find out that the slayer is a human woman. He is even more shocked to find out he is attracted to her. Now he has to convince Emma that there are some good vampires out there, and he is one of them.

This is a fast-moving, witty addition to Kerrelyn Sparks' Love at Stake series. While trying to convince Emma to stop hunting vamps, Angus and Emma are both being hunted by Angus' ex-girlfriend and her group of evil vampires. If you like light, paranormal romance, this series is a good one. My rating: 4.5 Stars.
