The series Love At Stake is a hit. Kerrelyn Sparks brings creative characters and a dynamic plot to the pages with each book. Her sixth book, Secret Life of A Vampire brings those characters back to the pages but this time Jack has the floor and will be assisted by Lara a police officer.
The Plot of Secret Life of A Vampire:
“A typical bachelor party is all about beers and beautiful women. A vampire bachelor party is no different-except the men are drinking Blissky (whiskey-flavored synthetic blood). And no one can throw a party quite like Jack, the illegitimate son of the legendary Casanova. But when the party gets out of hand the cops show up, Jack has some explaining to do…if only he wasn’t stuck speechless by the beauty of officer Lara Boucher.
Lara is sure there’s something more than a bachelor party going on. What is Jack hiding? And why is he so interested in the recent disappearance of young women all over town? Her investigation uncovers more than she wants to know, especially about this modern-day Casanova. But if she’s ever to make detective, she’ll need to expose all his secrets…if only her heart wasn’t on the line.”
Jack and Lara are a perfect pair. They are able to combine forces while getting their hearts tangled. I liked this story for the fact that Lara is another strong women but she is immune to Jack’s control, to any vampire mind control. That gives her a great advantage and will let Jack know that his heart is on the line as well.
Having the son of the Casanova is a nice touch. I liked the use of historical characters mixed in with fiction and the use of gods and goddesses even if they were the bad vamps.
Finally the story brings the were-animals more into the light and Phil will be coming center stage in the next book with Vanda.
Kerrelyn Sparks is a clever writer bringing the very traditional vampires into a new light. A fantastic series to devour over.
