He's a vampire from the big city . . .
Phineas McKinney thought New York City was tough, until he was attacked by Malcontents—evil vampires who consider mortals to be snacks. Saved by the good vampires, Phin swore to devote his now undead life to stopping the Malcontents. He's got his job cut out for him when word comes that their enemy may be hiding in Wyoming. What does a city boy like him know about horses and campfires? Good thing he's got Brynley Jones with him . . . if only she didn't hate every vampire on earth.
She's a werewolf princess . . .
Bryn believes vampires are seductive and charming, and that makes them dangerous. So she's more than a little annoyed about teaming up with Phin, even if he is the only bloodsucker able to make her inner wolf purr. But as they hunt down the new leader of the Malcontents, danger threatens . . . and Phineas and Brynley discover a passion that will rock the foundation of their supernatural world.

Phineas aka the Love Doctor is looking to retire his ladies' man status.  Only problem is he wants to do it with Brynley Jones.  She's a were-shifter with a real chip on her shoulder about vamps.

Brynley grew up in the lycon world as the daughter of a rich and power alpha.  She's sick of the users and abusers.  Even though she's taken refuge with vampires she can't help but compare all of them to the users she grew up with.  All except the gorgeous Phineas.

After the defeat of the malcontents leader Corky Courrant claims she's the heir to the malcontents throne.  When she repeatedly ignores summons to appear before the vampire council to answer for attempting to out vampires to the mortal world she goes into hiding.  A tip comes in that she may be hiding in Wyoming and Phineas is assigned with checking it out.  In need for a day guard he's teamed up with none other than his female dream some true; Brynley Jones.  Can Brynley overcome her prejudices? Will the Love Doctor ever find true happiness?

Once I got started I couldn't stop!  Kerrelyn Sparks' hilarious brand of humor and pop culture references had me literally laughing out loud.   Open shows of affection don't come easy for Pheneas and Brynley but the journey to get there was filled with adventure, misunderstanding, and tons of giggle worthy taunting.  After the last installment of the Love at Stake series I was a little weary of continuing but am I glad I stuck with it.  I feel Mrs. Sparks has found her voice again and it shines.  I can't recommend Wanted: Undead or Alive enough!


  1. I am sooooo jealous of you for being able to read this book early! I love this series and Kerrelyn's great humorous stories. I have been looking forward to Dr. Phang finding his true love since first meeting him. I can't wait to read this book!

  2. I ditto June's comment. I am so jealous that some of you are able to get this book early. Right now I am reading All I Want For Christmas is a Vampire and I am loving it, so I guess I will have to make do until I can get my hands on this one too. :)

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
