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.

The love at stakes series is one of my favorites, this book has the same funny antics as the rest of the series. The narration is great, I wish they would use a man for the male voices.
I own all of the love at stake audio books and have enjoyed them all immensely, up until this one. The story itself is good, (though not as good as some of the others) but what really destroys this book for me was the narration. I find it funny that, when nearly 1/3 or so of the vocals are Scottish, the narrator cant do Any (French as well) accents correctly, or even minimally. I have to constantly try to figure out who is talking, since every voice tends to mesh together. Out of all of the voices, however, and cringing at the horrible piercing shrieks this lady seems to think all female do from time to time, I must admit... Every time I hear her interpretation of Romans voice, I laugh my butt off. She seems to think that he should sound like one of the OLD Transylvanian vampires from decades ago. Short of the amusement factor, I was sorely tempted to just buy this book hardcopy so I didn't have to deal with the narration.
I really did not like this narrator. I fell out of the story all the time and she made the dialects of the different characters sound all wrong. The story is as good as the other ones, but it's hard to keep up when you don't like the narrator.
I put this book in with Stephanie Meyers. The story is just alright and if it wasnt for the sex I would say teenagers would like it.
I thought the performance was exceptionally good. There were so many characters to portray which is a very difficult thing to do well and I think this reader did a very good job. I would like to hear more from Miss Castle.
