Once again, Ms Sparks uses fangs and claws to bring forth a vampiric tale of love, sensuality, and humor.
Her returning characters deepen the content of her sixth book in the Love At Stakes series, but it's
the love of one lonely vamp and his lady that capture the hearts of romance readers as they, too, fall in
love with her bad-boy vamps.
NYPD Lara Boucher is called to a potential crime scene. The blood spatter suggests violence, but the
tall, dark and Italian-accented man who denies anything went down is more intense than the bloody room.
Jack Giacomo is sex on a stick. His eyes are mesmerizing, his body a testimony to a warrior's prowess,
and his moves would make even a dead woman sit up and take notice. The only problem is, he does this type
of mind thing where she is supposed to obey. Yeah, like that's going to happen.
Jack has been a vamp for several centuries. He's lost at love more than he's won, but the intriguing
woman wearing police threads lays a mind trip on him like he's never known. For some odd reason, he can't
control her and when he finds he's falling fast and deep for Lara, he knows she will never trust him until
he tells her what he is. Her suspicions that he is an alien seem laughable, but when she finds out he is
a vampire, she has the power to shatter his heart into dust.
Lara and Jack put aside their DNA differences and work to solve a serial kidnapping case. When Lara is
kidnapped, Jack fears he will lose her before he can truly make her his own. Lara gets an up close and
personal view of the difference between the man who captured her heart and the malcontent vamp holding her
hostage. When push comes to shove, she must decide if she can live with a vamp forever or suffer the
decades of loneliness before death.
