How To Marry A Millionaire Vampire

How To Marry a Millionaire Vampire (Love at Stake, #1)How To Marry a Millionaire Vampire by Kerrelyn Sparks

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I needed some brain fluff to take a break from the heavy reading I've been doing this week. This book fit the bill nicely. I picked this book up in Barnes & Noble's Free Book Friday and based on the title I was expecting a Chick Lit romp - possibly a reality TV type book. Nope didn't happen. In fact, I'd like to send the author/publisher an epic.fail for the title of this book. Anything would have been better.

Okay, so aside from a crappy, mis-leading title, this book was good! At first I thought I was in for an erotic romance (I mean, the first scene of the book is three vamps playing with a human sex doll), then it strengthened up with a plot, and then I became a little bored because I thought there was going to be a plot inside a plot, but no the author pulled off a brilliant twist and it all came together in one big happy plot. [I'm pressing the Like Button here, kids] There was action, some cheesy romance and a little bit of erotica all wrapped up in a neat little package.

Series: Love At Stake Book 1

Synopsis: So what if he's a bit older and usually regards a human female as dinner, not a dinner date? Yes, Roman Draganesti is a vampire, but a vampire who lost one of his fangs sinking his teeth into something he shouldn't have. Now he has one night to find a dentist before his natural healing abilities close the wound, leaving him a lop–sided eater for all eternity.

Things aren't going well for Shanna Whelan either...After witnessing a gruesome murder by the Russian mafia, she's next on their hit list. And her career as a dentist appears to be on a downward spiral because she's afraid of blood. When Roman rescues her from an assassination attempt, she wonders if she's found the one man who can keep her alive. Though the attraction between them is immediate and hot, can Shanna conquer her fear of blood to fix Roman's fang? And if she does, what will prevent Roman from using his fangs on her...

I have to agree; the title does make it sound like a very light paranormal chick lit. Someone should change the tile --- soon!
