Forbidden Nights With a Vampire

Submitted by Robin in PA on November 14, 2011 - 12:05pm.

After three former employees lodge complaints against Nightclub owner Vanda Barkowski, she is sentenced to an anger management class. With no one volunteering to be her sponser, Phil Jones steps forward to take the job. Phil has had feelings for Vanda for years, but couldn't act on them since he was her guard. He knows she is attracted to him, but also knows that she thinks he is a human. How will she react when she finds out he is a werewolf? Will he be able to keep her safe from rogue vampires who want to kill her?

Another great installment in Sparks' Love at Stake series. I've been waiting for Phil's story for a while and wasn't disappointed. If you like your vampire stories light and funny, this is a good series. My rating: 4.5 Stars.

Quick and fun read

I absolutely love this series and this latest book is a welcomed addition. I like the world that has been created within and I am glad to see some more of the shifters and how they fit in as more than just daytime bodyguards. The school is progressing nicely in the background as well. I anticipate it will become the focus in a future book.

Just like all the other books in the series you will find witty humor, innuendos and smooth written love scenes. The book reads quickly and I admit I cried at the end. Good tears of course!

Vanda has always been a favorite of mine and Phil was the perfect Alpha male to tame and sooth her wildcat spirit.
