Vamps and the City
Darcy Newhart thought it was a stroke of genius—the first-ever reality TV show where mortals vie with vampires for the title of The Sexiest Man on Earth. As the show's director, Darcy's career would be on track again. And she can finally have a life apart from the vampire harem. Okay, so she's still technically dead, but two out of three's ...more

We can all die in peace now.
That's right, there is a pig who was turned into a vampire. Okay, so he didn't exactly last long, but he was there and that's all that counts.
Apparently there is a guy on deviant art who does comics with Hampire, the vampire pig. I think we all need to take a minute to appreciate this. And, the fact that you can find anything on the in ...more
Well I did!
In this day and age a lot of people love to watch reality shows.
I’m not one of them but I acknowledge that they can have spark.
This particular vampire show made me shed laughter tears all over the place.
I love the humor in these books!
‘You see. It is easy!’ Otto started to lower the chair when he yelped ‘Aagh!’ The chair tipped spilling Maria Consuela onto the floor whit a splat. Her scream was cut off whe ...more
In this book, Darcy Newhart is the focus. In book 1, she was less than a bit player. In fact, I could barely remember her. I had to go on Kerrelyn Sparks' website to remember who and what she was. Here, she is lacking purpose and is very bored. I wasn't sure if she was a vamp ...more
Cute fun story, light humor, light drama, extra cheese.
I like this series there is a sense of fun that you don't find with many paranormal romance reads. It's a perfect audiobook for those long drives, walks... when you just want something light to chuckle at and forget the time.
What happened when humans are sneaked onto the Sexiest Man in the Universe which is supposed to have only vampire contestants ? Will the sexiest man be human ? No, it is impossible, just ask the vampires. Yes, ...more
Boy meets mortal, mortal falls in love with vampire, vampire can't live without mortal. Sparkling may occur.
(Isn't that the best picture ever?)
Normally, I want to shake the crap out of the mortal.
But there's always a HEA, and that makes me happy.
I liked this story. First because the female vampire wasn't completely pathetic. She hates being a vampire, ...more
I didn’t liked how Austin couldn’t get past his prejudice. And all he could fixate on was dead this and dead that.
I like the idea of the show and how the harem came to some realizations that was the best part for me.
I hate to give it such a bad rating but I was just over it.
Second in the Love at Stake series
OK, I'm pissed I just rewrote this really good review and then that bitch sitting in the chair popped up telling me Goodreads was over capacity and deleted it. ARGGGGH! Well here it goes. I'm still annoyed. How dare that little girl come and delete my review! Darcy Newhart used to be one of the vampire women in Roman Draganesti’s harem. Darcy thought having a vampire TV reality show where mortals compete with vampir...more
I was terribly disappointed. Their romance didn't convince me at all. The first one because of the overuse of "I love you". I was sick of it. It seems they proclaimed their love in every page until I found it became a cheap thing. The second one was the fact that they were not in love, but in lust. There was no friggin' way they loved each other when they spent so little time together (at the beginning of their confession). And I was sick with the way ms. Sparks tried to convince us, readers, ...more
There aren't a lot of job options for ...more
I liked Darcy up until about 83% through the book. She got really hot and cold at that point about her relationship with Austin and it became really annoying. Other than that she was strong, indepedent, but also likable aside from her whiny "Woe is me, I'm a ...more
MINOR SPOILERS AHEAD
1) He kept invading Darcy's mind with absolutely no reservations.
2) It took him such a long time to stop being so dense and prejudiced about vampires.
3) He wanted Darcy to change who she was. (And she wanted to change who she was to m ...more
Nevertheless, I can't enjoy this books as much as I do others more serious. Comedy is nice, but makes me not take the book as serious as I take other prn romances. Even Lynsay Sand's books were a bit more mature and with a more developed plot than this ones. Maybe the problem is that the word that describes these books is "cheesy". LOL. I like them, ...more
Book two in the Love At Stake series picks up where we left off in How To Marry A Millionaire Vampire. The CIA Stake Out team headed by Sean Whelan, is on the warpath, taking out good vamps along with the bad in their search for Sean's daughter Shanna.
Enter Austin Erickson. He's a hunky spy with some serious psychic mojo. Boyfriend can enter anyone's mind (both vamp and human) and read/manipulate thoughts. He's also got some kick ass telekineses going on. Sean' ...more
I didn't read this series in order, like I usually would and should, but even though I didn't read it in order, I wasn't completely lost. Sure, you get more of a background on the characters if you rea ...more
Combining comedy, romance, and some interesting situations this book has become one of my favorites.
Meet Austin, a man who believes he is helping save innocent lives by joining the CIA Stake-Out team and helping rid the world of the creatures known as vampires, who is on his next mission: join onto DVN's newest show and gather information on the vampires.
Meet Darcy, former journalist turned vampire hoping to start a ...more
Cute book. The series is enjoyable but I think I'm going to hold off on reading the rest because I do ...more
The characters and situations they find themselves in are often highly comical and sometimes a little scary. It is a perfect blend.
Kerrelyn Sparks 'Love At Stake' series has made it to my top 10 Series Following file!
And this was only the 2nd book in the series.
There were some issues here that were different than the first book.
Also.... Vampires don't have shadows?!? That is just so random....
A little bit slower than the first (hence the four stars) but still enjoyable.
Oh. While the mortal/vampire couple's lifespan from book one is still unresolved (grrr) this couples was sorted out nicely. I'm a happy girl.
This one was super romantic in that I really felt that despite the silliness these two were crazy about each other.
Standard KS minimal sexy times but the compelling characters and romance between H & h m ...more
"4.5 stars" Vamps and the City was another great installment in the Love at Stake series. It was a really fun read that was essentially a paranormal spoof of The Bachelorette, except in this case, rather than having only one bachelorette, there are five, the cast-off harem of Roman Dragenesti from the first book. I'm normally not a big fan of reality TV and have never actually watched The Bachelor/Bachelorette. I wasn't quite sure how I would like the premise when I start ...more
