Books by Kerrelyn Sparks

The Siren and the Deep Blue Sea

For a novel featuring a romance that has been hyped up over four other books, The Siren and the Deep Blue Sea was a big letdown. The last in a series about the Embraced, people born with special abilities, this story follows Maeve and Brody as they continue the fight against the villainous Circle ...

How to Tame a Beast in Seven Days

Welcome to the world of Aerthlan, where, of the five kingdoms it comprises, only one exists  peaceably. This is the setting for Kerrelyn Spark’s new series The Embraced, following a group of young women, raised as orphans in a convent in that one peaceful kingdom, who take on the rest of the worl ...

How to Seduce a Vampire (Without Really Trying)

I have to admit - I love books with kitschy, cliched titles. I’m happy to say that I’ve enjoyed most of the books I’ve read that are like that (you can check out my top 10 list if you don’t believe me), and I was hoping that Kerrelyn Sparks’ latest would join that particular group on my pe ...

Wild About You

Okay, here’s my confession of the week: I don’t like cheesecake. Every so often, I try it because I wonder if my taste will change and I’ll finally cotton on to what half the world seems to love. But I don’t. I find it cheesy and filling and slightly nauseating and kind of gross — sweet ch ...

The Vampire With the Dragon Tattoo

This latest offering by Kerrelyn Sparks is the 14th in her Love at Stake series. While I have not read any of the other books in this series, I do not believe it necessary to read the previous books to understand this one. Ms. Sparks does a very good job of subtly revealing the backstory surrounding ...

Less Than a Gentleman

I find it pretty hard to resist a Revolutionary War romance, so when I saw that Kerrelyn Sparks was releasing one, I snapped it up. Imagine my surprise when I discovered it's actually a sequel to her first book - which I also reviewed over a decade ago. I had remembered that one as being a little be ...

The Vampire and the Virgin

Yes, I am tired of vampires. Yes, the title The Vampire and the Virgin is silly, but yes, I sat up late happily reading it. Any romance fan who’s been reading the genre for any length of time knows that a very good book can hide behind a very silly title – and that’s exactly the case here. ...

Forbidden Nights With A Vampire

Forbidden Nights With a Vampire is the sometimes funny, sometimes poignant tale of Vanda Barkowski, a vampire who has a problem with her temper. I read Kerrelyn Sparks's first book in this series, How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire, but not the others, something I plan to remedy as soon as possible ...

The Undead Next Door

After reading two really bad vampire romances in a row, I’m ready to take a little break from this genre. The back of The Undead Next Door lists three signs that your new man is “different.” Here are three signs that you need to read a different book: 1. You look at the page number every coup ...

Be Still my Vampire Heart

This is the third book in the Love at Stake series. Although I haven’t read the first two, this one is not particularly hard to follow. That's about the heartiest recommendation I can offerly, sadly, even though I’m a fan of vampire romance. In Sparks’s creation, there are ...
