I just put myself on WL for the one of her "Love at Stake" books.  I usually don't like cutsey Vamp books, but this series seemed interesting.  Can anyone tell me about this series?  Is it good?  Worth reading?  Input would be appreciated!

I've liked the 5 I've read and am waiting for her new one. They're pretty light/cutesly/romances and characters are seen in the different books though the main focus in on the main couple for that book. The first one has a dentist and male vamp who owns a synthetic flavored blood company. He breaks a fang on a blowup doll that's basically for 'feeding'. the 'good' vamps drink the synthetic blood and don't feed off humans. There are some bad vamps as well plus the CIA going after all the vamps. the 2nd book I think could've been left out but one of the CIA guys and a woman who doesnt want to be a vamp star in that one and it's pretty funny in places. The 3rd one has a woman from the CIA and one of my favorite vamps(can't remember his name but he wears a kilt) and it's the more 'stressful' one with their drama near the end but still a really good story. I liked the first one and Jean's story the best(think he's book 4).

but I'd say it's more cutesy than anything though not stupid if that makes any sense :-(

I love her books...I've read all the Love at Stake books without skipping one.  (You know how once in a while an author writes one you just can't read?)  I WL her books, but usually end up buying them new.  I got a gift certificate at Borders, so I pre-ordered her next one due out April 1.

I've read all her books and loved them.  They are what I call "fun books", something I can read on a Saturday afternoon.  I can't wait for books 6 & 7.

They remind me alot of the Lynsay Sands books - same sort of tone. Good for light reading or a day at the beach. Which, I would love sunny hot beach weather right about now ! :)
