Mikhail Korollov had loved Lady Pamela Smythe-Worthing for 200 years, but afraid to court her since he think she's just woman full of vain and selfish. As for Lady Pam herself, she's done with being coward and go to Albania to help Mikhail and his comrade to battle Malcontent, the bad vampire. Who knows that Mikhail, this big bad brute and Viking all the way can make her dead heart beatin...more

A definite 4 and 1/2 stars grouping! Was even introduced to a new writer, Kim Falconer, whom I'm going to be reading more books by. : )

V IS FOR VAMPWOMAN by Kerrelyn Sparks
The novella, V IS FOR VAMPWOMAN by Kerrelyn Sparks is a great addition to the Love At Stakes series and a sheer delight to see Mikhail getting his story. I do wish this had been a full-length because I would have loved watching them fight, spar, tease, and fall in love with each other. Pam is a delight - shades of Lucy Arnaz d...more

Vampires Gone Wild is an anthology, with works from Kerrelyn Sparks, Amanda Arista, Pamela Palmer and Kim Falconer.

V is for VampWoman by Kerrelyn Sparks
This is a novella from the Love at Stakes Series. Pam, one of the original vamp harem members, has decided that she is no longer taking the cowards way out and will be battling the malcontents as VampWoman. Showing up in the middle of a battle in a spandex costume, Pam finally grabs Mikhail’s full attention.

A wonderful combination of humor with...more

Had to download it for the Kerrelyn Sparks novella! Mikhail and Pam were so sexy and cute together. The best part about anthologies is that I get a chance to try out new authors. I liked the writing style of the other three authors so I will have to pick up some new books... oh darn ;)

--Posted 10/24/2013--
Now finished with Blood and Water by Kim Falconer. It was a pleasant read, taking place in San Francisco in the early 1900s. Anyone who reads it needs to know some basic history, as it discusses the massive earthquake and how it's destroyed the town, which gives way to the iconic structuring of the Golden Gate Bridge. At the same time, any potential reader must keep in mind that there is a reason for every segment being written with a time and date stamp--but you won't find...more

Vampires Gone Wild is an anthology made up of 4 vampire romances written by different authors. Generally it was an ok collection, I enjoyed every story but there was only one that I truly loved and that was First Dates are Hell by Amanda Arista.

Vampires Gone Wild by Kerrelyn Sparks:

This novella was alright; to be honest I think you need to have read more books from the Love at Stake series to truly get this one. It was written well but I couldn’t get into it. I felt like the characters had a bac...more

This review is only for the Love at Stake part of the anthology at this time.

I have to admit that Lady Pamela was never one of my favorite characters. I always found her rather annoying. I was happy with this little novella though, it let us see into the Lady Pamela that we never got to know before. Her story, like so many of the vamps, is rather heartbreaking. I love how she chose to overcome her feelings of inadequacy, and I love how she found her true love. Short of course, but oh so sweet!

I read this book for the first story “V is for Vampwoman” by Kerrelyn Sparks I love the series Love at Stake and this was a quick cute story with people that you know if you have read the series. I give this story a four stars.

The second story “A Forever Love” is a quick story in Vamp City books by Pamela Palmer I haven’t read this series yet but reading this short story I now am going to read them. I give this story a four stars- and I can’t wait to read this series.

The third story “First Dates...more

I chose this anthology because of the first novella by Ms. Sparks. I have read all of the Love at Stake series and I have had such fun laughing and crying with her characters. It was a no-brainer for me to read this installment! The others included however, were all new to me, so here are my thoughts about them!

I bought this anthology cuz l ADORE Pamela Palmer. I had never read the other three authors in the book, but l very much enjoyed all four stories. Enough to hunt down the series that the other stories showcased! Was some good stuff! Check it out. You won't be disappointed!

V is for VampWoman by Kerrelyn Sparks was Lady Pamela and Mikhail's! What a funny, great sweet book. I totally adored and loved it. I can't wait for the next one. This book was short, wanted more :( but I'll wait for Dougal's. Love your world you create Kerrelyn!
Amanda
I only read the sparks one

Basically it's cheesy and I feel Mikhail was left out of a bigger novel he deserved. You know nothing about him other than a cursory overview of his character. And vampwoman?? Really?! God awful
Emily Rose
I know this was just a novella, and part of a larger anthology with other authors, but wow, could it have been more rushed? I don't think so. I've read novellas before that are way more developed so the length of the story can't be solely to blame. They went from "nice to meet you" to "I'll love you forever" in like 5 pages. Okay, I'm exaggerating, but not by much. Also, as a coven master, I felt like Mikhail deserved a full length novel. He's an important character and he deserved more of a sto...more

I generally like anthologies but I may not have been in the right mood for the first two stories...

V is for VampWoman by Kerrelyn Sparks - This is typical silly Sparks fare. Prim and proper Lady Pamela, who has been a reoccurring character in the series as part of Roman's former harem, gets her HEA with 'barbarian' Mikail, when she decides it's time to be brave and join the fight against the Malcontents. - as I said I just wasn't in the mood for silly and I actually have found most of the harem...more

Review courtesy of Dark Faerie Tales.

Quick & Dirty: This book is filled with 4 novellas and gives you the opportunity to get a sneak peek into three different series.

Opening Sentence: As a man of few words, Mikhail Kirillov never stated the obvious.

The Review:

The first novella is V is for VampWoman, which was a cute read and allowed me to jump back into the Love at Stake series. I have only read How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire and Vamps and the City, so I have a vague recollection of our...more

V IS FOR VAMPWOMAN by Kerrelyn Sparks (Love at Stake, #13.5)

This was a fun addition to Spark’s Love at Stake series and, like the full length novels, there is no need for prior knowledge of this world and its characters. I really enjoyed Pam and her machinations to help out the guys as the not-so-mysterious VampWoman in her black spandex. The clever humor and unique worldbuilding that is the calling card of this series is ever present in this novella. I...more

“V is for Vampwoman” by Kerrelyn Sparks.
I always know that when I open a book and see the word “malcontents” I am being thrust back into the world of the Dragonisti’s and what a fun time I am going to have. Even though “V” was a short story, I wasn’t disappointed in the least.

It was wonderful to see Mikhail Kirillov face the love of his life and finally conquer her. He’s been in love with Pamela since the first time he saw her on the D...more

V Is For VampWoman by Kerrelyn Sparks: LOVED IT!!!
I'm absolutely in love with this series: The Love At Stake Series. They keep me pulled in with the mixture of romance, adventure, and humor all rolled into one. Now for some reason I never took a shine to Lady Pamela. There was just something about her that I didn't like. Yet this story made her finally more relatable. She is a vampire who after all this time of her life is finally decided to prove to herself and everyone around her that she is n...more

This book was a collection of four short stories, and a new reading experience for me. I usually don't read collections, the stories tend to be short and lacking in details. However, the Kerrelyn Sparks story drew me in, and I was pleasantly surprised. I enjoyed this anthology immensely and discovered two new writers in the bargain.
V is For Vamp Woman - is Sparks contribution, and a great addition to her Love at Stake series. Mikhail and Pam made a great couple. The wacky Pam feels remorse for s...more

I only read Kerrlyn Sparks and Pamela Palmer in this anthology. The review is only for those two stories.

V is for VampWoman by Kerrelyn Sparks
This story drove me a little nuts! Lady Pamela is a bit of a moron. I really just wanted to bury my head and hide form her ridiculous nature. However, Mikhail seems to enjoy her so I will allow it. The story was pretty short. This was upsetting to me because I adore this series. I think I might have come to like Pam, if there was a longer novel. In the en...more

A brilliant combination of supernatural shorts!

V is for Vampwoman by Kerrelyn Sparks
This story is the reason that I purchased this book. I adore the Love at Stake Series, Kerrelyn Sparks keeps it fresh and her stories are pure magic.

The story of Lady Pamela and Mikhail is sweet and enduring. I was glad to see that Lady Pamela found the courage and ability to trust again. Mikhail has always been an outstanding warrior; it was nice to see the softer side of his character. We are reminded that the...more

V is for VampWoman by Kerrelyn Sparks

I love the Love At Stake series. Love it. (Whole reason I bought the book) The story was cute. It has all the qualities of one of the novels but sped up to a novella timeline. While not the pairing I would have imagined at first, they are kind of cute together.


A Forever Love by Pamela Palmer

Started out so good...so promising. Then something happened. Something in the Vamp City just turned me off of this book. In part, I think it was their relationship and how...more
Angela Carr (Under the Covers Book Blog)

This review is solely for A Forever Love by Pamela Palmer. I became a fan of this author after reading A Blood Seduction last year. I believe she is one of the authors who started to suck me in the Urban Fantasy world. Ms. Palmer knows how to write a good dark and gritty story.

Elizabeth had been heart broken when Lucas had left her without a goodbye. For months she did nothing but think of him and when she was finally decided to move on, she abruptly finds out where he’s been all these months....more

This anthology is filled paranormal romance stories that center on a vampire.

V is for VampWoman by Kerrelyn Sparks

As someone that totally loves Ms. Sparks Love at Stake series I have to say that this one felt really rushed. I know it is a novella but I would have loved it if this story was a lot longer and with more of a plot to it. Overall not a bad story but I have read better from this author. It is my favorite of the four stories found in this book.
