All I Want for Christmas is a Vampire (Love at Stake #5)
Toni Davis's Christmas wish list
1. Springing my best friend from the psych ward.
2. Living somewhere that doesn't have coffins in the basement. Occupied coffins.
3. Finding Mr. Right. Please make him tall, dark, handsome, and alive.
This Christmas isn't so merry for Toni. Her best friend's been locked up in a mental hospital ever since she told the police she was attacke...more
Humor and romance with just the right amount of heat, that would be my short description of “All I Want for Christmas is a Vampire” by Kerrelyn Sparks. This book is part of her ‘Love at Stake’ series about vampires in the modern world and I think the series has improved with each book she’s written. They’re certainly not ‘serious reads’, but if you’re looking for a book that will leave you with a grin, this is a good series to try.
Toni is a woman...more
I must admit I was really looking forward to this book after reading The Undead Next Door(book 4). Ian was a reoccurring character throughout the series, and he's been one of my favorites, so I couldn't wait to see him "all grown up" and finding love.
Ian is nearly 5 centuries o...more
This series is turning out to be really good, I think I've enjoyed all but the second book of this series. I cannot wait to read more of it. It's becoming highly addictive to me.
I have to preface this review with the simple fact I’ve never been a fan of funny vampire romance novels. I’m a “the darker the better” vampire fan. However, it is with great pleasure I can honestly say I truly enjoyed All I Want for Christmas Is a Vampire. What a delight!
Toni Davis’s Christmas is not looking like it will be an enjoyable one. Her best friend has been institutionalized after claiming she was attacked by vampires. Toni knows her friend isn’t cra...more
Ian MacPhie has been a vampire for nearly 500 years but he was turned when he was only 15 and he is always treated as a teenager and is tired of it. In the last book “The Undead Next Door” he took a drug to stay awake during the day and he has aged 12 years and now he wants to find his Mrs Right. He goes to his friend Vanda at her vampire nightclub “Horny Devil’s” and she does a profile for him and puts it on an internet da...more
Strong 4 diamonds...a great read.

This is the first I have read in many years and lets just say it reminded me of why I really don't read them. First of all it's about this Scotish vampire who is seeking true love, then you throw in a girl who is trying to prove that vampires exists in order to bust her best friend ou...more
All I Want for Christmas is a Vampire is a fun and sexy paranormal listen.
The narrator, Coleen Marlo did a pretty good job with the narration but I found her accents for the male character slip from time to time. A Scottish brogue would change to something that sounded Russian then back to Scottish. And I didn't care for her voice for Phineas I thought it was cheesy and a little racist or stereotyping of a black man, which changed my narration rating from a B to a B-. I thi...more
When the book starts we learn that Ian has taken the 'Stay Awake Drug' for twelve years adding another twelve years to his looks. He has gone from looking like a fifteen year old boy to a tw...more
This one is my favorite of the series. I love wee little (now big) Ian. And Toni is such a great match for him, matching him hit for hit phsyically and mentally. The way things work out in these books is so enteratining. While I figured out Ian would help Toni get Bri out of the mental hospital I did not see him breaking out Teddy too a...more
Ian McPhie wants to be lovedand cherished for who and what he is. He wants an honest and steadfast lady. But he hasn't had success so his friend Vanda sets up a profile on a vampire dating site and suddenly hes flooded with prospects. Too bad all he can think about is his daytime bodyguard Toni, who is missing an important criteria --she isnt a vampire and she loathes vampires.
Too bad because they both want love so desperately!
What a great read. I read book 1 a couple of years ago and...more
Kerrelyn Sparks' Love at Stake series is definitely humorous! ^^
the Ian Fan Club and his legion of female Vamp chasing away the Malcontents LOLz!!
I like Toni and Ian:) so many laugh out loud moments.
Oh and little Tino!! I wonder why his name is Constantine... I don't have book 3&4 :(
need to get them. I missed his birthing, little Tino is such a sweet little boy ^^
I couldn't give this a 5 star because it's just funny and a bit emotional but ... nothing deep and philosophical that...more
the main characters in this book are the wonderful Ian who was turned at 15 and has now done something about getting to be older, even though he's a vampire.
Toni comes into his life as a day guard at the townhouse and suddenly, looking for a vampire for his mate no longer seems as interesting and this brave and intelligent human looks very interestin...more

Ian finally grew up to look like a man instead of a boy and he’s looking for true love…in a lady Vamp. This hope was thought of in a logical sense, Ian good man that he is, doesn’t want to lie about his true self. He’s really adorable and since I’m a fan of Scottish Highlanders it was easy to love his character. He went to Horny Devils to find hi...more
I like that Sparks made both of them well rounded characters and very human. Even Ian things were not going smoothly, there for a while it was one fail after another and thats ok because that is life and the way it goes sometimes.
Overall one of my favorites from this series

“I already ate.” Ian sat at the end of the table.
“Anyone we know?” Carlos’s amber eyes twinkled. “Ouch.” He glared at Toni.”
