New York Times bestselling author Kerrelyn Sparks delivers the exciting conclusion in the Love at Stake series, where a Marine-turned-vampire finds love with the shifter princess forbidden to him…

Russell wakes from a coma to find he’s become a vampire. Now he has a thirst for revenge. Determined to hunt down the master vampire who turned him, he’s used to working alone . . . until he meets Jia. She is after the same vampire for murdering her parents and insists she can help Russell on this mission. Reluctantly, he agrees, and sets up some ground rules:

Rule #1: Their partnership is strictly business. If he holds her a little too close . . . if she looks at him with those exotic eyes . . . well, that has to stop.

Rule #2: He’s in charge. Jia isn’t used to taking orders and questions every move he makes. So he stops her the only way he knows how.

Rule #3: Don’t fall in love. But the kiss that was supposed to quiet her awakens something else in him . . . something forbidden. Because Jia is engaged. To someone else.

***Melanie V””V – #NerdGirlVamp’s  Review***
I have been with the “Love at Stakes” series since the beginning so went into this final book with mixed feelings. As sad as I was to see the series ending I do feel that pretty much everything has been covered and maybe down the line some of the younger characters could be explored as it certainly wasn’t a completely closed off ending.

That being said I have to say that this is probably my least favorite in terms of story. The light hearted feel of the earlier books was totally missing in this one and bringing back people for “one last mention” felt very forced.

Overall this series has been amazing and I will definitely miss it but this for me was not it’s finest hour.

3 1/2 stars rounded up to 4 with a strong suggestion that people read book 1 and see what this series was REALLY like!
