Three signs that something is very different with your new man:
1. He sleeps all day... which would be annoying, except he's so attentive at night.
2. He's attacked by sword-wielding assailants, yet insists he can handle it on his own.
3. He never seems to age.
Heather Westfield has always lived a quiet life, but that all changes when she helps a very handsome, very mysterious stranger. There's something not quite right about Jean-Luc, but still, she's never been with a man so charming, so attractive... so wonderful. Now if only a murderous villain wasn't after them, they might get their happily-ever-after.
Bite into another Love at Stake novel.

I'm not sure who would enjoy it. The narrator did such a terrible job with the accents that I could only listen to about 10 minutes of it before I turned it off.
My review is based solely on the audio version of this book. I don't know if the story is disappointing or not. I could not get past the first chapter. In that time the story seemed interesting. I have read other books in this series by Kerrelyn Sparks and really liked them. I have not listened to those audio books however.
The accents, especially the French, were cartoonish and over played. It is difficult to connect with the romantic hero of a book when he sounds like Pepe Le Pew. The book would be better with a narrator who could do subtle accents.
I cannot judge the story in this book because I was unable to listen to much of it.
This audio book was a waste of my joining credit. Don't waste your money or credits on this.
After loving book 3 and the narrator with the Scottish accents especially angus and Emma, then this one just ruins the whole feel of the characters feels like you are listening to a whole different series. Enjoyed book 1 & 2 also including the narrators, but it won't stop me from listening to the rest of the series I am hooked
Not if she is doing Scottish accents
The narrator from book 3
I really enjoyed this book and got into the story very easily. This narrator does such a superb job of reading the different accents and she gives Bethany (the little girl) just the right touch. Very enjoyable listening!
A decent narrator.
Predictable. The book really left no lingering emotion when it was over. It was just over - nothing to think about or evaluate.
The narrator's accent imitations were so annoying I couldn't concentrate on the story. She was also a very slow reader and I just kept thinking - get on with it already!
This book definitely wasn't my favorite in the series. In retrospect, I would have skipped it.
They r both great I read the print version frist, the audio let's me enjoy it the secound time around
Sparks allowes her people to b real, not even the heros make misstakes,or is that stakes
Her voice is suthoing
Even the undead can love (n not get fangy)
Sparks is a hell of a story teller

Worth buying... enjoyed the listen. I own the book and now audio. Love it!
The Humor and romance
I like Deanna's voice.
Say something about yourself!
I'm beginning to see an emerging pattern in Sparks' love scenes, which makes listening to the series one right after the other pretty monotonous, because the romance is a big yawn at times. I liked the main character, she's pretty feisty, and the babysitter is a total hoot, and the hero is, again, handsome and rich...but that's what makes romance novels--paranormal or not--fun.
Avid reader. Listen to audio books on long drive back and forth to work.
I love the characters and how they play off each other. How they bring out a rich and exciting story, keeping your interest and wanting to know more about them.
The Love At Stake series is great. The characters, the emotions they show, the fascinating story all pull you into their lives and make you care and want to know more about them. Plus you get to hear more about the others that continues to fill in their characters, making them more real and intersting.
Yes as I enjoyed the way each characters was just enough different that I had no problem keeping them separated and knowing who was speaking at any given time. The characters voices were each separate and distinct.
I'm looking forward to getting the rest of this series in audible format.
That depends on the rating system and the types of books. You can't rank them in the same league as the BDB JR Ward series, L Adrian's Breed series or even Larissa Ione's demonic series. While I absolutely love those books, this is a little lighter. With an interesting yet predicable storyline. I find this series entertaining and relaxing. Not quite as humorous as Lynsay Sands A-Vampire series but a close second.
I loved the way Deanna read the store. I almost didn't pick this as listen because everyone seemed to trash the performance. But I felt the performance fit the story. Of course the French accents were over the top but this is not like we should expect the Les Miserable performance.
I think when the ex was scrabbling around thinking he was a cock roach
Paris to Texas and back again
If you want an enjoyable listen go for it.
Funny, some good lines by hilarious Hispanic babysitter!
Accents of various voices poorly performed including the Texas one.
J Luc's moments with Bethany.
Some of the best lines by the babysitter had me laughing out loud. Heroine not very sympathetic and pretty much an idiot at times. The phrase "at war with fear" could have been used less. But worth the read.
