A wonderful return to Sparks’ world of vampires and shapeshifters. Caitlyn and Carlos’ story is a great addition to the Love at Stake series, and the many returning characters make this a truly entertaining read.

Caitlyn Whelan was warned by her father to never visit Romatech Industries. Yet when she receives an invitation to her nephew’s birthday party — a nephew she never knew existed — she knows she must go. What she discovers is that the sister she hasn’t seen nor heard from in six years was kept from her by lies and deception. She also finds out that creatures she thought only make-believe are real. The vampires are hard enough to accept, but then she discovers that Carlos Panterra, whom she is strongly attracted to, is a werepanther. As for Carlos, his attraction to Caitlyn makes it difficult for him to concentrate on his main objective, to find a werepanther mate so he can assure the continued existence of his species.
