Kerrelyn Sparks apparently has issues with reality. After writing more than a dozen books about vampires, she has now completely gone off the deep end and wound up on another planet. But how thrilling that she can share this magical new world with her readers! Although she is best known (so far) for the Love at Stake series, which has hit as high as number 5 on the New York Times list and 22 on the USA Today list, she hopes her readers will love The Embraced as much as they did her merry band of vamps and shifters. To learn more about her paranormal, historical, and upcoming out-of-this-world fantasy romances, please visit Kerrelyn on Facebook, Twitter, or her website at www.kerrelynsparks.com.

I plan to return to the old gang some time in the future, but I'm not sure when. When I do return, though, I'll skip ahead in the timeline about 20 years or so. That way the kids will have grown up and can have their own stories. And bachelor vamps like JL Wang will not have really aged-- they'll look exactly the same!(less)

Hi Dominika,
I had originally planned to be more serious, but as I started writing, it quickly became apparent that I'm simply not capable of remaining serious for very long. So yes, there is definitely plenty of humor!! There's also plenty of action, adventure, romance, and suspense-- I try to throw it all in there!(less)

“Merda! Her lace panties had snagged on his ring, the signet ring he'd inherited from his father, Giacomo Casanova. His father had seduced hundred of women without any problems whatsoever, and he was having trouble with just one. This was the real reason he never used the Casanova name. He could never live up to his father's reputation. The old man was probably laughing in his grave.

Nine circles of hell," Jack muttered.

Hell?" Lara asked. "I thought I was the Holy Land."

You're paradise. Unfortunately, I am stuck there."

Her eyes widened. "Stuck?"

Normally, I would love being stuck to your lovely bum, but it would look odd if we go sightseeing with my hand under your skirt. Especially in the basilica."

She glanced down. "How can you be stuck?"

My ring. It's caught in the lace. See?" He moved his hand down her hip, dragging her undies down a few inches.

Okay, stop." She bit her lip, frowning, then suddenly giggled. "I can't believe this has happened."

I assure you, as much as I had hoped to get your clothes off, this was not part of my original plan."

She snorted. "No problem. Just rip yourself loose."

Are you sure?" It will destroy you undies."

She narrowed her eyes with a seductuve look. "Rip it."

Very well." He jerked his hand away, but the panties came with him. He yanked his hand back and forth, but the lacy, latex material simply stretched with him. "Santo cielo, they are indestructible."

Lara laughed.

He continued to wage battle, but to no avail. "They could use this material to build spaceships.”

“Look, Laszlo. I'll have the dentist with me, and I don't want to alarm her any more than necessary. So take Vanna out of the backseat and stick her in the trunk."

Shanna halted. Her mouth dropped open. Her throat seized up, making it hard to breathe.

I don't care how much crap you have in the trunk. We're not driving around with a naked body in the car."

Oh no! She gasped for air. He was a hit man.”

message 65: by Janice

Janice Bolick I love reading about dragons and/or dragon shifters that don't eat the innocent, especially the women and children. Loved So I Married a Sorcerer. Have a great day.

Janice Bolick Happy New Year.

Janice Bolick Here in south Charlotte, when we get snow --if we're so lucky-- we mainly get it in January or early Feb. I had the impression, that this recent snow, as early for Texas. I'm glad you had the chance to enjoy some. Thanks my Christmas will be nice and quiet...just my Mom, and me. Have a great day.


Kerrelyn Sparks Janice wrote: "Hope you're enjoying the snow,--if you're getting it today, in your area of Texas--I only have rain, now, in my hometown of Charlotte, NC. Merry Christmas, and have a great day."
Yes, we did have some snow, although it is quickly melting away. It looked so pretty while it lasted! Take care, and have some healthy and happy holidays! Merry Christmas!


message 61: by Janice

Janice Bolick Hope you're enjoying the snow,--if you're getting it today, in your area of Texas--I only have rain, now, in my hometown of Charlotte, NC. Merry Christmas, and have a great day.


Kerrelyn Sparks Janice wrote: "Happy Halloween."

Happy Halloween to you, too!! Stay away from the vampires and shifters, unless they're from the Love at Stake series!


message 59: by Janice

Janice Bolick Happy Halloween.


message 58: by Janice

Janice Bolick You're welcome. Just wish I ...could...come and help the people of Texas, but I sure can't leave my 87 years old mother. Have a great day.

message 53: by Janice

Janice Bolick Have a beautiful 1st day of Summer, tomorrow.


message 52: by Janice

Janice Bolick Sure did. My Mom and I had a quiet Memorial Day, just reading, and watching TV. Memorial Day, I often think of my late uncles that did survive WWII, but later died of cancer from their wounds, or other war related reason. I enjoy the day, but just want to be quiet....Have a great day.


Kerrelyn Sparks Thank you, Janice! You, too!

Janice Bolick Happy March !st. Almost Spring, and I'm more than ready.

Janice Bolick I don't know if you have a store called World Market, in Texas., But I got rather "addicted" to the various MacKay jellies I found at my local World Market in 2014, after my local grocery store quit carrying it. I especially love MacKay's ginger preserves. Hard to beat small-batch jams, jellies, and preserves.


message 39: by Janice

Janice Bolick Love that Valentine's Day "display".


message 38: by Janice

Janice Bolick I loved the "minor" character of the Werewolf, Chief. Think you'll ever have shifter cowboys or Texas Rangers in your new Love at Stake series? That might be fun.


message 37: by Janice

Janice Bolick That's great to hear. I have a friend in Houston, though I never get to see her now, but she and her family told me how often the highways around Houston, can get flooded. I've always wanted to see that region of Texas, maybe..someday.


Kerrelyn Sparks Janice wrote: "Hope you weren't affected by the flooding in Houston. Someone told me that the highways around Houston flood Fairly often. Take care."

We're doing just fine, Janice! Thank you for your concern! We bought our house in an area with a lot of flood control, so we've never had any trouble (knock on wood).

Janice Bolick Hope you weren't affected by the flooding in Houston. Someone told me that the highways around Houston flood Fairly often. Take care.

Janice Bolick Love those Love at Stake book videos, and YouTube videos. Lots of fun, and makes me wish that they were trailers for real movies.

Janice Bolick Looking forward to the next book in the Love at Stake series. Might be fun to see Roman's children when they're 15 years older. Also looking forward to the new Embraced series.


message 30: by Janice

Janice Bolick Still love those Scottish Vamps, and the shifters--especially the jaguar panthers, and the bears. The idea of the 100 Vamps, in those 100 Santa Claus suits. always makes me giggle. I... might...want to run into those good Vamps and/or good shifters in the dark...maybe....

Janice Bolick Hello again. I'm glad I found this site, as well. Hope you had a good Christmas. Happy New Year. I guess you must have dropped/closed the site. I'd been messaging you on earlier. Thanks again for friending me again.
