When I see the cover of Vampire Mine (Love at Stake, #10) by Kerrelyn Sparks by Kerrelyn Sparks, I'm hooked!
Ow, such a beautiful cover, and this is one of two cover in Love at Stake series, that featured a couple (other always single man or woman)

I'm curious with this series, so I give it a try.

Roman Draganesti, is a vampire, scientist, millionaire, and an owner of Romatech Industries. He make some new stuff, like synthetic blood, both for human and vampire (called Vampire Fusion Cuisine). Roman believe that he had abandoned by God, that he is an evil creature. So he choose not to drink blood from human, instead he drink the synthetic blood. One day, he got an accident, his fangs is broken! (yes really!, the event that make his fangs broken so freaking funny! ^^). And he need to fix his fangs, so he must meet a dentist. The problem is, vampire society don't have dentist. That's mean Roman must meet mortal dentist, one thing that he always resist.

Shanna Wellan is a dentist. She join the Witness Protecting Program, after see her friend's death, and she has a phobia for blood after that. At one night, she got attacked by people that she justified for, and then she got a patient! Guess who's the patient? Yep, he is Roman. Roman want Shanna to fix his fangs, but of course his fangs is not like ordinary people's tooth. Roman lie to her, that's a wolf fangs. Shanna refuse, but Roman don't have much time, and the people that target Shanna is coming. So, he take Shanna to his home.

Finally, Shanna want to fix his fangs (with some hypnotize thing in here), and become attrached to Roman, and vice versa.But, Roman is a vampire, he promise not to get involved with mortal again, even though he want Shanna. Shanna never know Roman is a vampire, until she left Roman house. After she know that he has a harem (10 bloodthirsty vampire woman), and then almost chased with Russian people that still target her, at last Shanna know, what Roman is. Shanna is afraid of course (hey this is a normal reaction if you know that the guy you have crush on is a vampire), but she can't help her feeling to Roman.

Roman and Shanna try to make their relationship work, despite their difference. But in the other side, Roman's enemy is targeting him, and then targeting Shanna too. There are another treat from human's world, Stake Out-Team, and the leader is Shanna's father. With their problem, can Shanna and Roman get over their difference, and can Roman finally release his burden after all?....

How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire is a good start for this series. Miss Sparks introduce some character that will take their role play in the next books. There are 2 side in this series. First,the good vampire. They're not drinking human blood, and choose to drink blood from their glass. They are Roman's people and his friends, Angus MacKay and Jean Luc Sharpe. And, then there are bad vampire,they're thing human is their food.

Roman himself is adorable, yet he has a past that make him always feeling guilty, because in the past he is a monk. And now he is a vampire, an abomination. He feel God had abandoned him from long ago, and this is why now he try to make his life better. With helping a human, to redeem his sins. Lucky for him, he has many good friend in his side, and after Shanna come to his life, he is ready to release all his guilty feeling.

Shanna is a strong-willed woman. Even though she is fear with blood, with Roman's help. She know that Roman is a good person, her opinion change when she know he is a vampire, but after that, she realize, even though Roman become vampire, he is still a good person, there are a kindness in Roman's heart...

The world building in Love at Stake series is fascinating, and I cant wait to read the next book in this series Vamps and the City (Love at Stake, #2) by Kerrelyn Sparks

Aku udah baca sampai yang terbaru :). Kalo yang paling terbaru lagi no 12, dapet dari penerbit tapi masih belum sempat baca.
Seri ini makin lama makin geje sih. Tapi mau diterbitin sama Dastan disini katanya


Sisilia @Ren: Ya, makanya aku waktu itu stop baca... lama-lama bosen, soalnya ceritanya tambah dibuat2, trus bosen soalnya tokoh2 cowoknya nggak bervariasi, nyaris sama semua :( Mungkin nanti bakal lanjutin lagi, pas kangen sama vampir2 modern itu :)
