Who says a vamp can't have it all?
Darcy Newhart thought it was a stroke of genius—the first-ever reality TV show where mortals vie with vampires for the title of The Sexiest Man on Earth. As the show's director, Darcy's career would be on track again. And she can finally have a life apart from the vampire harem. Okay, so she's still technically dead, but two out of three's not bad. Now she just has to make sure that a mortal doesn't win. If only she wasn't so distracted by a super-sexy and live contestant named Austin....
But Darcy doesn't know the worst of it. Austin Erickson is actually a vampire slayer! And he's got his eye on the show's leggy blond director. Only problem is, he's never wanted any woman—living or dead—as badly. But if he wins her heart, will he lose his soul? And if it means an eternity of hot, passionate loving with Darcy, does that really matter anyway?
Bite into another Love at Stake novel.

I have now I listened and read over 1500 books since 2010. Goodreads.com is a good way to find books and keep track of what you've read.
IM GOING TO HAVE TO SAY THE SAME THING FOR ALL THE LOVE AT STAKE BOOK IN THIS SERIES. ALL THE NARRATORS WERE REALLY GOOD. SOME BETTER THAN OTHERS BUT IT IS DEFINITLY WORTH BUYING OR USING YOUR CREDITS ON. JUST MAKE SURE YOU LISTEN THO THE BOOKS IN ORDER ACCORDING TO THE BOOK # OR THE RELEASE DATE. ONE OF THE BOOKS IS NOT PART OF THE SERIES BUT PLAYS AN IMPORTANT ROLE. AFTER BOOK 9 YOU WANT TO LISTEN TO VAMPIRE MINE
Well done again Kerrelyn Sparks on the second book still another new twist on a vamps the reality TV show was great I want more more more on to the third book YEAH
More focus on the 2 main characters.
Yes, i have read several in the same series, all good to great!
Entertaining and good listen, just not great.
Overall, I enjoyed the book and wasn't sorry I listened. The premise of the story was just as ridiculous as the first book in the series, but this time a bit more lighthearted and film noir at the same time (if that is possible). The author did a great job of keeping you guessing with some dramatic and well-timed reveals.
I was a little disappointed that some of the voices of the characters from the last book weren't the same this time around (eg: Roman). I was also a bit disappointed with the characters' actions at the end of the book; they were more than a bit cliched and nonsensical. Still, I enjoyed it!
This was a really enjoyable listen. Imaginative premise, and funny situations abound. The harem was funny mostly, but at times their actions were tedious, but it lent to the story and helped to move the plot along. Sparks writes some really great heroes, they get more romantic as you go.
Yes I would if you enjoy the lighter side of vamperic romance novels. The second in this series reminds me of the Lyndsay Sands novels. Entertaining and interesting.
It is a slightly different take and I enjoyed many of the characters interplay within the story.
I liked Darcy. The heroine of the story.
It was not a book I couldn't put down. But it was a book I did want to finish. I enjoyed the story. This book has some intrigue that keeps you interested and looking forward to the next installment.
If you have the additional credits and enjoy vampire stories without the darker side like the JR Ward BDB or Lara Adrians Breed series. You'll enjoy the break.
I think so. The narrator was a little distracting with some of the voices she created for certain characters. For instance the character Shanna sounds exactly like Marilyn Monroe with her "breathy" voice, it wasn't bad just a little distracting from the story.
When I clean, drive or exercise I listen to romance. The steamier the better but it must have a great story as well!
I listened to the story while doing the spring cleaning. It was lots of fun and helped to keep my mind occupied. the characters are all different in their own ways so there is always someone to relate with. I liked the Independence the woman learn and enjoyed the book as a whole.
I love this whole book series, there is 13 books. One book out of the 13 is a little slow but still good. I am hoping she will write another one to the series. I find that she is very witty, clever, romance, and the story intertwines throughout all 13 book. I love the Highlanders and their accents. I did not care for Shannon's voice that well in this book.
But once again I will say I love love love these books they are so funny and a great story line.
Yes. I've read this book previously, but I honestly liked it more after listening to it. It's light and humorous and the antagonist isn't some big bad.
It's very clear that Ms. Sparks has very little control over how her books are narrated, but this narrator is just one of the best. I can understand the pseudo-monotone might bother some, but her dialogue is right on the money.
"brilliant idea but....."
I loved the first book in this series but think that this was was lacking in excitement - what you read in the blurb was what you got with no twists. I am wondering if the current trend for series of books rather than one-offs has forced this book when it would have been better to leave it at one. Having said that her writing is much better than anything I could do xx
"It was OK"
I really enjoyed the first book in this series and could not wait to start on this one however it has not lived up to my expectation. The story itself is good and has kept me entertained but I really do not know why they changed the narrator. The narrator in the first book was fantastic and did a really good job however this new lady has an English accent which makes me wince everytime I hear it. It has spoiled what should have been a perfectly good story!!
