Paranormal Romance Review: How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire by Kerrelyn Sparks

How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire
Love at Stake Book 1

from the back cover copy:

Nobody said love was perfect..

Roman Draganesti is charming, handsome, rich... he's also a vampire. But this vampire just lost one of his fangs sinking his teeth into something he shouldn't have. Now he has one night to find a dentist before his natural healing abilities close the wound, leaving him a lop-sided eater for all eternity. 

Things aren't going well for Shanna Whelan, either. After witnessing a gruesome murder, she's next on the mob's hit list. And her career as a dentist appears to be on a downward spiral because she's afraid of blood. When Roman rescues her from an assassination attempt, she wonders if she's found the one man who can keep her alive. Though the attraction between them in immediate and hot, can Shanna conquer her fear of blood to fix Roman's fang? And if she does, what will prevent Roman from using his fangs on her...?

my thoughts: 

 Ok, so I know this book is ten years old, but I only just read it. When it first released, I remember thinking the plot just seemed too far out there for me, so initially, I ignored it. Over the years, more books in the Love at Stake series came out and I started hearing more and more good things about Kerrelyn Sparks. Finally, after all this time, I decided to give these books a shot. I am so glad that I did! Kerrelyn Sparks is hilarious. Is the idea of a vampire needing a dentist to fix his broken fang still a bit ridiculous? Well, yeah, but it's the best kind of ridiculous. I love the characters and the world that Sparks has created, and I can't wait to read the rest of the series. Shanna shakes things up in the vampire world and I'm excited to see that play out in the following books. If you like vampires or humorous Romance novels, you need to check out Kerrelyn Sparks and her Love at Stake books.
