Vanda Barkowski is in trouble.

As the owner of a hot nightclub, she's more unconventional than most of her fellow vampires, and if some think her a little out of control, then so be it. But after three former employees filed a complaint about her temper, Vanda is sentenced to an anger management class. Worse, Phil Jones agreed to be her sponsor. Phil, the mortal who i

This was the worst. Why, you ask? The main girl is so horrible that I want to strangle her with her whip - that she wears as a belt. Over a catsuit. Yes, she wears a catsuit every day. She has them in every color.

Let's face it, ladies. NOBODY can pull off a catsuit. NOBODY. Even if you have the model-figure to wear it, you shouldn't. It's just not an attractive look. There are only three exceptions to this rule:

Vanda and Phil, two unlikely people to join in a relationship. Biggest hurdles, she fears wolves, he's a wolf, she's forbidden fruit he's a fruit eater. LOL
Not my favorite pairing, but it was short and added a pivotal move in the war. I missed the snark in a coupe of the other books.
Good narrator

I'm not sure if I'm giving 5 stars to the book because I loved it or because I got fond of the series and the characters, maybe a bit of both things.
This couple was great, the chemistry between them was amazing and how everything developed even better. I loved the change from vampire to were.

This series is a fun, quick read. I give this books 5 stars because I really enjoy reading them, but they can't compare to more serious or complex books. It's something to read when you're looking for a ligh

Was glad to get Phil's story because he intrigued me from before. I figured he was something more. Vanda annoyed me though for most of the book but it was an entertaining read. Just not my favorite.

I did suspect Vanda had a thing for Phil in Ian's book. when she asked Ian How's Phil? But I shrugged it away. And now It surprised me. Vanda is true riot, love her wild ways. She is actually the beast and Phil is the beauty :DD. And as for Phil, We havent know anything about Phil in the previous books. We didnt know if he was handsome or not. This book did desc ...more

Wohohoy... akhirnya setelah ada bau-bau shifter di buku sebelumnya, mereka dapat spotlight tersendiri di sini. Si bodyguard Phil sudah bikin kepo sejak perubahannya menjadi werewolf di buku-buku sebelumnya. Dan Vanda love interestnya juga tipe Vampire yang dominan dan penuh warna. Jadi aku menunggu dan membaca yang satu ini dengan antusias.

Dan instingku gak meleset. Buku ini intens, HOT, seksi, seru dan juga penuh momen emosional. Phil tampil menawan dan menggetarkan dengan sisi gentleman dan be

Well I just want to start by saying... Holy Crap Phil is 10 out of 10 on the hotness scale lol. Jeez! It's not very often that a Werewolf tops a vampire for me but Phil did it. I love the whole Alpha male thing he has going on. I am such a sucker for the strong, sexy possessive males. Phil is perfect.
I have always wondered what Vanda would be like. To be honest she reminds me of myself a little. I'm not quite so full of rage lol but I am certainly hot headed and an throw quite the tantrum whe

For the last three years Vanda Barkowski has managed her own Vamp nightclub, where sexy Vamp men dance and strip for excited Vamp women. With her purple-dyed hair, purple catsuit and whip coiled around her waist, Vanda lives to shock. She also has something of an anger management problem, and now the Coven Master, Roman Dragenesti, has ordered her to undergo anger management sessions. Again.

Only one man steps forward to sponsor the fiery vampire: Phil Jones, a mortal and Vanda's day guard from w

I jumped into this without reading all the previous books in the series. Therefore, all the past characters that appeared and so many of their past are being recapped in a brief way threw me off balance. I find it frustrating and annoying at times that the cast was HUGE and they are like one big happy family. Everyone seemed to be married. There are Roman/Shannan, Ian/Toni, Jack/Lara, Maggie/Pierce and etc... It felt too cliche. Maybe I only have myself to blame for skipping the previous books. ...more

Quotes:
Anger sizzled in Vanda as she faced Roman. “You won’t find anyone here to sponsor me. They’re a bunch of cowards.” She adjusted the whip around her waist. “And they’re right! They should fear me. If any of them dares to reprimand me, I’ll rip their heads off.”

A collective gasp echoed across the room.

Roman regarded her sadly. “I don’t believe you’re entering into this exercise with the correct attitude.”




Connor handed him the keys. “Be careful, lad.”

Phil snorted. “I know how to drive.”

Vanda has been apart of the Love At Stake series from the being. She was apart of Romans harem and now owes her own night club the Horny Devil. Phil is head of Security during the day guarding the Vamps during their death sleep. It was revealed in one of the other books that Phil was a Shape Shifter, a Werewolf. I do not like books about Shape Shifters and Werewolves. Humans making love to part animals was way out of my league, vampires are humans; dead but human, so I love reading about them be ...more

Vanda is a wild child with a bit of a temper, especially when men go after her and she retaliatea. Phil, an employee of the Vamps, offers to help with her anger management, even though spending more time with her brings out his passion for her that he has been hiding for years. Vanda's transformation was a very traumatic event and Phil also has a secret that no one knows about regarding himself and his family. Pasts are exposed, secrets are out, and the big war with the Malcontents officially st ...more

Forbidden Nights With A Vampire narra la historia de Phil y Vanda, a quienes ya conocemos de los libros anteriores.
Es increible lo sorprendentes que pueden llegar a ser algunas lecturas, la historia de Phil y Vanda no me llamaba demasiado la atencion e incluso llegue a pensar que no me gustaria, y resulto ser el libro que mas me ha gustado de la saga.

What a great book. This might be one of my favorites of the series so far. I love Vanda and her inner struggles. I've always loved Phil, even before I knew he was a shifter. As we go through the book and see Vanda cope with her anger and move forward I couldn't help but be proud of her as if she were a dear friend or relative. And I was SO happy for Phil when she gave in to him at last. The end brought tears to my eyes, what a great way to end her story.

I love this series!! I didn't think I would like Vanda that much until the first few pages. A hot-tempered, whip toting vampire being chased around by a sexy as hell Alpha werewolf?? Whats not to love. Vanda had such a touching story and Phil gave her the perfect present (view spoiler) What an awesome ending!

Barely 3 stars. So much of this book is hiding, secrets and sex. So far this is the weakest book in the series. Not enough romance or action.

This book was about Phil and Vanda. Vanda has anger issues and Phil has been interested in Vanda for years. Phil works for Connor as an MacKay S & I (Security & Investigation) day guard. Vanda is off-limits to Phil because he's her guard and her anger management sponsor, but he's not very good at following rules. I really like Phil, but this book wa

In Forbidden Nights with a Vampire we finally see the romance that was foreshadowed in a previous book come to fruition. Phil the daytime guard and Vanda the former harem member finally have their romance.

Another great story by Kerrelyn Sparks. She again gives us well rounded easy to love characters, in this book particularly I really enjoyed the backgrounds she gave both Phil and Vanda. Once again the suspense surrounding the war with the Malcontents is a great background and allows us to once

Phil has always been one of my favorite side characters and honestly I have never liked Vanda but I though eh maybe she won't be that bad once I know her back story... But it really didn't help.

This story is about a hotheaded vampire (and male strip club owner whose employees have stage names like "Max the Mega Member") sentenced by a vampire judicial system to anger management counseling with a super-hot human bodyguard (but secretly he's an Alpha werewolf). And these are some of the least ridiculous aspects of the premise.

I wanted to like the heroine, Vanda. I tried to sympathize with her plight, but just couldn't make it work, no matter her tragic WWII Nazi-resistance back story. An

The tone for this story was entirely different than the others. It could be because we are starting to get into some of the shifters stories but I just could not get into this book. I tried for half of it. I will try the next one just because I love this series and this author and I am hoping this one was just a fluke for me.

I have wanted to read Vanda’s book since the first book, and I just loved her in this book. She is such a feisty character, and I really liked the romance between her and Phil.

One of the better books of this series, it had great humour, interesting storyline, a wonderful H/h, and great chemistry and romance.

Just when you think Kerrelyn Sparks couldnt possibly top that one she blows you away with the next installment.

Excellent read all of them

Now I'm just starting to get pissed at the quality of this series. While I enjoyed Vanda's backstory I just wasn't impressed by the continuation of the plot of the malcontintents. It seems like it's a dog chasing its tail over and over.

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!

“I thought you’d never ask.” Vanda tossed her bag onto the table. She was ready for him this time.
He opened her silver evening bag. His eyes widened.
