Crouching Tiger, Forbidden Vampire!
Love at Stake book 16
New York Times bestselling author Kerrelyn Sparks delivers the exciting conclusion in the Love at Stake series, where a Marine-turned-vampire finds love with the shifter princess forbidden to him . . .
Russell wakes from a coma to find he's become a vampire. Now he has a thirst for revenge. Determined to hunt down the master vampire who turned him, he's used to working alone . . . until he meets Jia. She is after the same vampire for murdering her parents and insists she can help Russell on this mission.
Reluctantly, he agrees, and sets up some ground rules:
Rule #1: Their partnership is strictly business. If he holds her a little too close . . . if she looks at him with those exotic eyes . . . well, that has to stop.
Rule #2: He's in charge. Jia isn't used to taking orders and questions every move he makes. So he stops her the only way he knows how.
Rule #3: Don't fall in love. But the kiss that was supposed to quiet her awakens something else in him . . . something forbidden. Because Jia is engaged. To someone else.
“Sparks brings the 16-book Love at Stake paranormal romance series to a deeply satisfying, delightfully swoon-inducing close….As Russell and Jia team up, their relationship grows organically into a rich romance full of vulnerability and tenderness. The detailed story is filled with callbacks to the earlier books, but first-time readers will have no trouble picking things up, while fans will want to go back and savor the entire series from the beginning.”

And now for the question everyone is asking: Is this really the end of the Love at Stake series?
Book 16 will see the end of Master Han. Killing him for Christmas is my gift to you all!! Since there will be peace in the vampire world, I'm taking a vacation from the gang and letting them be happy for a while. I do have some other ideas for them, so the halt will probably be temporary. Meanwhile, I have some other ideas that have been bugging me, so I'd like to give them a try. I truly appreciate all the support and love for the series, and I hope you’ll join me for some new adventures!
