He's Out of Control

Dougal Kincaid has something to prove. After being injured in a battle with the Malcontents, he's ready for active duty protecting unsuspecting mortals from these villainous vampires who want to rule the world. But first he has to get control of himself . . . because just the sight of a certain lovely doctor has his injured hand doing some peculiar things, not to mention the sizzling sensation that burns along his dragon tattoo.

Vampires? Vampires?! As a scientist, Leah is having trouble believing that these immortal creatures exist. But there they are, standing in front of her, asking for help in solving a genetic puzzle that can save mankind. There's even one in a sexy kilt! Just one look into Dougal's gorgeous green eyes sets her pulse racing. But can she trust him—and the overwhelming desire that refuses to be ignored?

BAM! Book number 14! Can you believe it?!

Usually by book 7 of a series you'll find a lull in story, or repeated story-lines. Fortunately Sparks keeps it fresh with this newest installment of Love at Stake. The humor is still there, but you also get a very serious story of a guy that feels less of a man, and an awkward geek finding love.

I think part of the success of this series are that the characters are so different.  I've heard authors say that their characters speak to them, so I can only imagine the 100's of voices that must be flowing through Sparks' mind at one time. lol.  From book to book you get individuals with wonderfully unique quirks.

I don't want to give away too much plot, because there is a wonderfully heart warming twist and it would stink if you knew about it before hand. Just know that Dougal and Leah are meant to be. They have their ups and downs, but what fun would it be if they didn't!?

The action in this one is kept to a minimum, but the villain story line in Asia is still going strong. Hopefully in the next book we'll get to see a good 'ol fashion showdown between our wonderful Romatech saviors and the evil vamps causing problems out east.

So, great addition to the Love at Stake series! If you've read them to this point don't stop now! If you haven't checked out this series, pick it up today! You'll be in paranormal romance heaven :)

*OH! And guess who's back for another appearance? That's right, VANNA ;)  Love that doll!

Just to get you caught up, Here's the Love at Stake series reading order:
