Well, I loved that Ms Sparks has expanded her world to include shape shifters, and I love that she keeps exploring new countries. Expanding the orginal story of Shanna and her family was great too.

I was halfway done with this book, however, and realized that nothing had happened yet. SO boring! All the action got packed into the last quarter of the story. Plus, the attraction between Caitlyn and Carlos felt really fake.

It almost feels like, after so many romance novels, Ms. Sparks really just wants to write her paranormal stories. But, she has to write romance stories, so the romance is almost an afterthought. She has a really clever and creative vampire world and most of her characters are interesting. I'd love for her to just start writing a vampire (and shifter) series instead.

This is my first Sparks book. I would read her again because it was fun but she wouldn't be a "go to" author for me.

The characters in her book are very one dimensional. She tries to make their back stories tormented or interesting but they don't connect with the actions of the characters in the present. For example, Caitlyn went through life feeling rejected and being not good enough. Yet, she repeatedly puts herself in situations with Carlos where he rejects her. On top of that I have a hard time believing the sisters being so independent and brave won't find a way to help their mother.

Sparks does that a lot. She will mention a problem off hand that seems to have some real meat and then forget about it going for some typical silly romance problems. She could have done so much more plot-wise with these characters.

Again it wasn't a bad book. It had humor and kept my interest. Just could have been better.

Caitlyn Whelan has finally made contact with her sister, Shanna, after years of estrangement. When she visits Shanna, Cait learns of the existence of vampires and shifters when she meets her sister's new "family" at Romatech. Carlos Panterra is a were-panther who works as security at Romatech. When he meets Caitlyn, he is immediately attracted to her, but knows he is under an obligation to find a mate to perpetuate his race which is close to extinction. Caitlyn doesn't care. She knows Carlos is the guy for her and will fight for him.

This book is part of Sparks' Love at Stake series. If you've been reading the series up to this point, you know that these are light-weight paranormal romances with a lot of humor. Both the hero and heroine are very likeable and have good chemistry. The story has Carlos and Caitlyn traveling to Thailand trying to find more were-panthers. Of course, as in all of the books in the series, nothing goes as planned. My rating: 4 Stars.

I always love Kerrelyn Sparks Vampire books, and as I love them so much, I read them fast, and then am on pins and needles in waiting for the next book.
