After adamantly insisting that I cannot possibly read a series book out of order I picked up this little ditty by Sparks before the other 2. Now why would I do that? Well, chalk it up to being stuck at work for over 24 hours in the middle of a snow storm and a serious lack of reading material.
Knowing this was not the first in the series I did have my reservations that I would not be privy to some inside information about common characters or plot lines but I was pleasantly surprised that I followed along easily and more then willingly.
This book brought together my first love (paranormal romance) along with my other first love (men in kilts) in a wonderful combo. Emma is a totally kick major buttocks gal who hates vampires with a passion and believes that the only good blood sucker is a dead one. Until of course she meets Angus MacKay, a completely buff gorgeous speciman of kilt wearing manliness who just happens to be a vampire...who, after a little oogling she tries to steak.
Now Angus is just trying to do his job, which happens to be to keep the spitfire Emma alive. Emma, you see, is a vampire hunter and a human one at that. Completely unheard of if you ask Angus or any of his vampire kin. But try convincing Emma of that.
Now if this wasn't a headache and a half for Angus already...just throw in an evil leader of the baddies, gunning for his and Emma's heads, along with Emma's boss who firmly believes that Angus and his kin have brainwashed his daughter, and the threat of an upcoming war between the good vamps and the evil Malcontents and you have yourself a very good book. One that will stand alone even being part of a series.
Besides who can resist a Scottish vampire who has to check his...uhem....package after teleporting to make sure it arrived with the rest of him.
Third in Sparks' series about vampires and mortals. This time Angus MacKay and Emma Wallace take a turn. From the 493 year old vampire who checks under his kilt everytime he teleports to the vengeful, slightly confused vampire slayer - this book is excellent, especially if you read "How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire" and "Vamps in the City" first.
The 3rd in the LOVE AT STAKES series. Each one gets better. I really enjoyed Angus. Who doesn't love a man in a kilt?
Next in the series; about Angus McKay. Best one yet!
This was such a cool book. I was expecting this heroine to make a reappearance and wasn't disappointed with the plot or the laughs. Sparks is great at writing the humorous vamp-lite, so if you're into that kind of thing, I suggest checking out this series!
