The secret is out... Vampires do exist!
When a video reveals to the world that vampires live among us, it’s up to “young” vamp Gregori Holstein, VP of Marketing, to persuade the U.S. government to declare the video a hoax. But first the president wants a favor, one that requires Gregori to spend forty-eight hours in very close contact with the First Daughter.
Abby Tucker would rather spend her nights in a lab than attend her father’s state dinners. She’s dedicated her life to finding a cure that will save her dying mother and needs only two more ingredients. To find them, she’ll have to venture into the most dangerous region of the world - with a vampire. Her Armani-clad escort may be Undead, but he still makes her heart race. And the greatest danger won’t be the predatory hordes lying in wait for them; it will be her undying desire for the Sexiest Vampire Alive.

Say something about yourself!
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
Addicted to any type of Romance/Erotica audio books.
This series is a little silly and a little sexy. I really enjoyed all of these books for a light read. This narrator is definitely not my favorite by far but not so terrible that it stopped me from listening.
I loved this series but the narrator was so annoying. I can't bear to hear her voice ut tthe actually story was alright
Although not my favorite of the series, I truly enjoy Kerrelyn Spark's vampire world. I love how she ties the characters together as if she's writing about a family. This was my first audiobook and I enjoyed the experience.
Though most of the performance was good, I was disappointed in the way the narrator read the male characters. They came off as oafish, not strong, sexy vampires. This lessened my enjoyment of the book.
Yes, because it is a good story and I love the "Love at Stake" series.
Can't think of one
She was unable to perform male characters. She made Angus McKay sound like a woman with a high voice. She did an OK job with Gregori's and Abby's voices. She was absolutely horrible with Roman's voice.
I really enjoy this author's writing! She is has a way of infusing humor into her writing that left me rewinding the book to catch all of the story. I definitely will be reading more of her work. I also loved the narrator as well and find she is able to bring unique voices to the cast of characters in the book.
The Narrator. It has always been such a pleasure to listen to this series, until now.
There is action, romance and pathos. Something for everyone.
The "Sesame St". voices assigned to the characters were extremely irritating and reduced them in dimension to figures of ridicule, completely spoiling my listening experience.This was a shame as it was competent apart from that. Obviously this narrator had not listened to any of the previous books, unlike the purchasers, which would have helped in characterisation. The previous reader did a much better job, why the change?
Tell the Narrator to stop patronising paying customers, this is not a kindergarten library corner!
Read the book. The narration was sorely lacking. The narrator's lack of range made listening really annoying. The voices of character were either obnoxious or inconsistent. This series does not use a consistent narrator so I recommend sampling before using a credit.
Gregori. I was really looking forward to watch Gregori finally fall.
A different narrator. The cast of characters in this series have a large range of accents and this narrator was not capable of doing consistent and reasonable accents. Or at the very least the narrator could have listened to previous books and then would have been aware of which characters had british, scottish, french or russian accents.
As usual, Ms. Sparks’ story is well written and extremely entertaining. It was good to see Gregori’s story, even though he is one of the youngest vampires. It felt like too much time was spent dealing with the buildup of the story. There was more extraneous information and dialogue that didn’t further the plot or was pertinent to the story.
Now for the con: It’s so discouraging when such popular authors are assigned untalented narrators. A person who doesn’t have a talent for accents, should not be assigned a book with so many accents. Poor Roman sounded like he was either about to fall asleep or high on something, which could explain his constant changing accent.
I don't like the fact that they have a new narrator for every story because they pronounce the names differently and that is annoying
