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.
Crouching Tiger, Forbidden Vampire by Kerrelyn Sparks
Yes, once again another great series is coming to a close and what a conclusion it is… Don’t fret, look on the bright side… There has to be a bunch of new writing coming from the authors we love read including Kerrelyn Sparks.
Crouching Tiger, Forbidden Vampire is Russell, the vampire found in Han’s cave, and Jia, a were-tiger princess, story.
Russell has a major vendetta burning against Han. Turning Russell took everything away from him, but leaving him in a cave in a near mummified state for decades removed every connection he ever had to humanity until Jia stumbles into his revenge.
Jia wants revenge against Han, too. Han not only killed her family but chopped them up into little pieces so they could not be reborn into their next were-cat lives. Yes, Han is a very evil dude only topped by the demon released by Han.
Jia wants to team up with Russell but he fights it every step of the way. Well, until he sees Jia’s spirit crumble and her life is being placed the line. Then Russell has no choice but help the woman that haunts his thoughts.
This wonderfully twisted plot has inspired our imaginations and wow’d us with Sparks ability to tie it all together. This being the last book of this series, I especially enjoyed how all the characters are brought back into play for this the 16th book in this series.
Can you say, “I didn’t see that coming.” Well, I sure didn’t. In all the ways Sparks could have wrapped this story up, she completely surprised me.
I really enjoyed Crouching Tiger, Forbidden Vampire. I am sorry to see this series end but like I said before I’m looking forward to what might come next from this fabulous paranormal romance writer.
I received this ARC copy of Crouching Tiger, Forbidden Vampire from Avon in exchange for a honest review. This book is set for publication December 30, 2014.
