Nothing's sexier than an man who can keep a secret.

A typical bachelor party is all about beers and beautiful women. A vampire bachelor party is no different -- except the men are drinking Blissky (whiskey-flavored synthetic blood). And no one can throw a party quite like Jack, the illegitimate son of the legendary Casanova. But when the party gets out of hand and the cops

If you meet a guy who can alter people's memories, move super fast and is super strong, and can teleport, what would you think? Well, Lara and her best friend are thinking that maybe Lara's new guy is an alien or something. They decide to investigate.

LaToya: "Hey, I wonder what aliens eat. I hope your Jack isn't here to harvest us for food."

LaToya also insisted that Lara should try to inspect Jack for extra belly buttons, gills, tentacles, or scales. Someone (other than me and my freaky

Love at Stake is my go to series when I am in need of something light and humorous with a good portion of smut. And while this book still had all those things, it was somewhat disappointing, unfortunately. However, that does not diminish my love for this series! I will definitely be back for more


The humour: Like I said, the major plus with this book (and the entire series) is definitely the

I would categorize Kerrelyn Sparks' latest paranormal in her vampire series, "Secret Life of a Vampire" as one of the sweeter, yet still hot, in this whole series. Her hero is more Gamma than Alpha, her heroine is an ex-beauty queen turned cop, and there's not much blood spilled unless it comes from a glass.

The vampires in this series are divided into two camps; Malcontents who want to rule the world and feed from humans at will, and the good vamps who feed off bottled blood and battle the

I’ve been a big fan of Kerrelyn Sparks’ Love at Stake series, since I read the first book five and a half years ago. That’s why I was utterly dismayed to discover that it’s been over four and a half years since I last read one. I guess when someone has as many books on their TBR pile as I do and reads as slowly as I do, it’s bound to happen. Something winds up on the back burner whether intentionally or not, but it’s still sad, especially when they’re books that I love as

Still yet another good story. I think I am liking where this went. Never expected this Apollo thing. This was a FAST read because I jumped the boring drawn out nothing parts...

I was not too keen on this girl Lara. She's an idiot. She's a whimp. Supposedly tough, but just not a bad girl tough cop like she should be. Just an annoying curly haired red head who nags Jack for answers and figures out she's in love with him when she's in trouble. It's almost like this story was walking up a steep hill
This is the story of Jack (Casanova) and Lara. So this one was not about the action and the bad Vamps called The True Ones. In fact they weren't in here at all. Also the Stake Out team was M.I.A. in this one. Which is why it was small on the action side. Overall this book was just too funny. There were so many time that I was just cracking up. One of my faves was in the beginning for the bachelor party and the police arrive. Enough said, the ring stuck in the panties part OMG that was the best ...more

This was fun. I liked Jack but Lara and her friend was super boring.
3.5 stars - This review first appeared on A Weebish Book Blog

The Love at Stake series is one I discovered years ago in middle school, and I have continued to love her romances ever since. This novel is one that I hadn’t read yet, but after finishing SECRET LIFE OF A VAMPIRE I picked up two additional books to add to my collection. It was a fun, vampy adventure full of laughs and heated romance.

I didn’t buy it. Not the book, I bought the book. I had to so I could read it. I didn’t buy the romance. It just did not work for me. They met each other briefly a few times and they are already in love with each other?
When a bachelor party for vampires gets out of hand and the cops get called, Giacomo de Venicia or Jack as he’s known by his friends gets stuck with convincing the two police officers that show up that everything is fine. He will just erase their memories and be done with
Shannon (Giraffe Days)
Giacomo "Jack" di Venezia is the only son of the famous Casanova - much to his annoyance. He doesn't consider himself a lady's man and doesn't want to be one. Now an investigator for MacKay Security and Investigations (that would be vampire security and investigations), he's tried to follow his heart in the past and only been burned.

A chance meeting with a beautiful NYPD officer who's called to a vampiric bachelor party because of the noise and sword fighting has him in turmoil: he's drawn to
3.5 stars. I like these light, sexy stories, but they are definitely chicklit. I appreciate all these vampires wanting to make honest women of their female consorts, but they seem to move from love at first sight, to sex, to marriage in a matter of days or at most weeks. Also, all the humans and vampires are beyond beautiful, what about just normal women, Heather was a little plumper than svelte but she was very insecure.

* Henrik Giacomo "Jack"
Giacomo di Venezia, or Jack to his friends, is a two hundred year old vampire who's throwing a bachelor party for Ian at the Plaza. What he hadn't considered was the fact that a bunch of vampires drunk on Blissky would make a mess of the hotel suite, leaving blood stains all over the place. Even the police was called after the noisy event. Not a problem for Jack who can control minds easily, so you can imagine his surprise when the cops arrive and Officer Boucher is the most beautiful woman he's ...more
Book #6 in the Love at Stake series. This book focuses of the vampire Giacomo Casanova (Jack, the illegitimate son of Casanova). I must say that I was not looking forward to Jack’s story simply because, at least to me, he was a very minor character that I didn’t see often in the previous books. However, I was completely wrong after I started reading! So far this is my favorite story in the series yet! Ms. Sparks does a wonderful job of writing Jack’s character and the relationship, chemistry, ...more

I've been wanting to read Kerrelyn Sparks' books for a while now. So when I saw this book on the shelf at Target a couple of days ago I just had to pick it up. I know I start the series in the middle but I don't think I could have picked up a better book to start. First off the Heroine has an AWESOME name. Then the vamp is Italian...which is just delicious. Then Ms. Sparks makes it complete perfection by transporting the characters to favorite city in the world! The story is fun, ...more

Jack is throwing a bachelor party where men are drinking Blissky and literally can party all night long. Jack is the illegitimate son of Casanova and when the party gets out of hand Officer Lara Boucher shows up. Lara knows there is something more than a bachelor party going and she wants to find out what Jack is hiding.
Jack and Lara were an interesting couple to read about. I liked reading about a character from Louisiana. Lara is fun and her friend LaToya is hilarous. Jack and Lara are a

Loved it Loved it!!! I've had this on my shelf for months now!! So glad that I chose to finish this series!!
Why do the cute guys always end up with such stupid women?

I loved Jack! He was soo cute, funny and totally swoonworthy. The beginning of the book was also funny and romantic. But and that's a bit but, I totally disliked how Lara acted when she discovered that Jack was a vamp. Totally, exaggerated. She either loves him or she doesn't?! And for her to act that way because he's a vamp? Stupid!

Also, I disliked LaToya! In my opinion it was a serious abuse of confidence to enter Lara's computer and

I loved this couple, the son of Casanova and the woman who worked as a police officer with a mind that couldn't be controlled by the vampires and the story infused with mythology! Just what I always wanted! Jack tried his best to concealed Lara from his world, but a relationship won't work without honesty, and when he finally let Lara into his world, it's up to the heroine to decide whether to follow her brain or her heart. Lara's friend, LaToya, came out with many theories about Jack, and it ...more

I am very disappointed in myself. I finished this book a couple of weeks ago and totally forgot about the review part. Oh well, I am here now. So...let's just jump in. I started reading this book directly after the last couple of books that came before it in the series and I had to put this one down for awhile because I was starting to get rubbed wrong by the books...they felt similar, which it should be, but I needed a break. I took one and then I started this book over. I was pleasantly ...more

This is a great series, plenty of humor, great story lines, and engaging characters. In each book you meet more characters in this world, which makes it more fun when the time comes to see their story play out.

And best of all, the story telling is always focused on the two main characters and their point of view rather, unlike another author in the genre who shall remain nameless.

Book 6 in the love at Stake series.
This book was good but it wasn't my favourite. I didn't really like the storyline about Apollo and their cult. It seemed to come out of knowhere. I found myself skimming through a lot of those parts.
I liked that this book started with Ian's bachelor party. But I was a bit dissapointed, I wish we actually got to see some of the party though.
Jack was a great hero I loved his flirtatious behaviour and he was so romantic and charming. But he and Lara together

I liked it. For sure I didn't love it. I could not stand Laura. Like at all. She was terrible. Jack was amazing and way, way too good for Laura. But like with the last books it was funny. I laughed a few times. It's really the only reason I keep reading the series because I really don't like the females. I don't think I have really liked any of them. Maybe Emma but the rest so far have not been that great.

I loved that Jack didn't give up. Even after Laura

“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.”
“Jack grabbed Phil's arm to teleport back to Romatech.
Phil muttered a curse. "If you say one word about this to the other guys, I will stake you in your sleep."
"Don't worry, sweetheart. If they find out about this, I'll stake myself.”
