So what if he's a bit older and usually regards a human female as dinner, not a dinner date? Yes, Roman Draganesti is a vampire, but a vampire who lost one of his fangs sinking his teeth into something he shouldn't have. Now he has one night to find a dentist before his natural healing abilities close the wound, leaving him a lopsided eater for all eternity.
Things aren't going well for Shanna Whelan either... After witnessing a gruesome murder by the Russian mafia, she's next on their hit list. And her career as a dentist appears to be on a downward spiral because she's afraid of blood. When Roman rescues her from an assassination attempt, she wonders if she's found the one man who can keep her alive. Though the attraction between them is immediate and hot, can Shanna conquer her fear of blood to fix Roman's fang? And if she does, what will prevent Roman from using his fangs on her...

Title sounded good, and the reviews too. Once I got into the story, it kept me going. Think I'll try book 2 of the series. Vampire owns a pharmacutical company that makes special flavored blood substitute products for vampires, and regular blood substitute products to save human lives. Intersting story.
I never read the print version so I can't compare
Had me laughing from the first chapter on---and the love scenes WOW just WOW
I always think giving the characters a voice gives them more life. I didn't read the print version, but I think that in this case I will always chose the audio over print
I found myself laughing on more than one occassion.
I really liked this book and have since put more titles from this author on my wish list.
The "Love at Stake" series is one of my favorites and I have read every book through the current, in come cases, mulitple times. I enjoyed the audio book version of "How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire", and while the narration was not totally perfect, it was very good. For the most part I enjoyed how Ms. Cypress was able to vary the character voices and her treatment of the various accents of the characters. I particurly like how she captured the characters of Gregori and Laszlo.
I do like kick butt chick vampire slayers
I loved the characters, interactions between the characters, romance and humour. Could not put it down
Never give up on love
I enjoyed this and found at some places it was pretty funny. Also I think the narrator think a great job on teh accents and characters. Would buy another book from Sparks again..
I am a passionate devourer of chocolate and books. I also listen to audiobooks and drink chocolate. When I die, I don't want to be embalmed!
I liked this book. At first, I thought the author was trying too hard to be funny and almost gave this book up in the first few chapters. Too many one liners. But after a few chapters, other than the constant use of God's Blood, it started moving along nicely. I am still undecided about reading any more in this series unless I hear something really good about the sequel.
I am sorry, I really thought with all the reviews that this book was going to be funny and sexy. Instead I found myself listening to a horribly crappy books that ensures that I will not listen to this series or anything else by Ms. Sparks. The narrator was great. The whole take the hero on biting a blow-up doll and losing a tooth starts off well-enough. However, I have never heard of a hitman calling a mark to tell her the hitman is about to kill her. The whole premise of this book makes no sense. The vampires can't be in the sun, but have heartbeats? The herioine is afraid of blood and is creeped out by the hero but is so weak and mealy-mouthed that she runs away from him only to run back to him only to later lead a charge to save him by holding up a sword and saying a rallying cry ????? A cab is able to lose a government vehicle in a chase???? The vamps have pulses during the night and no other time (this I could live with). However, I can't live with or even find humor in the fact that even though the vampires are dead, they are getting fat from "fusion" cuisine and now the hero is introducing something called "Blood Light!" In addition there is an assassin female vampire who is not strong enough to lift a body? I found myself skipping whole chapters trying to digest this book. This was a painful listen and I could not think how this could get worse. Except it does. Her father is even more foolish. No CIA personnel would tell a mark that the CIA has been trying to use mind control on them. The whole premise of the book is interesting but the follow-through is awful. I did not find humor in it or have any interest in the romance. I could not waste 11 hours so I skipped multiple chapters so I could get to the end. Don't waste your money on this book.
Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
I did like this story, but there were holes in the story and maybe they will be patched up as the series progresses, there is a lot of books already written. I liked the characters well and will read the next book in the series, although I will probably wait for a sale not sure if I want to spend a whole credit on the next book. The harem thing was almost a deal breaker, but fortunately there was a decent explanation for it but it defiantly dropped this story to a 3.5 because of it. The title and cover are dumb and really has nothing to do with the story. I didn't mind the narrator she does a pretty good job.
interesting premise, but boring stereotypes that I'd heard a hundred times before.
narrator wasn't very good. it was difficult to yell when the scene changed because her character voices were not distinctive.
