DiDi’s Review – WANTED: Undead or Alive (Love at Stake # 12) by Kerrelyn Sparks

Visit Kerrelyn’s web-site

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

DiDi’s Thoughts:
WANTED: UNDEAD OR ALIVE is one of my favorites of the LOVE AT STAKE series.

We first meet Phineas AKA Dr. Phang AKA the LOVE Doctor AKA the Blardonnay guy in BE STILL MY VAMPIRE HEART, book 3.  I have always thought of Phineas as a little like J.J. Walker from Good Times, you know the jive talking, always making a joke kinda guy, who really has hurts and fears buried underneath all that good time charlie, playboy persona.   In WUOA we see a much different side of Phin, we still see all of his LMAO humor, but we see he is a worthy opponent to the bad guys, as well as his insecurities, fear,  caring and tender sides.   Brynley Jones is Phil’s kick ass were sister. She left Wyoming to escape from her Alpha father and is now teaching at the Dragon’s Nest Academy.  Even though Brynley loathes vampires, she is attracted to Phin and fights that attraction with all she has.

The McKay Protection team gets word that the ever evil Corky Courrant is in Wyoming, Phineas is assigned to go hunt her down.  There are two obstacles with this plan, one – he doesn’t know the area well, two – who is going to protect him during his death sleep?  DING, DING, DING….in comes the vampire hating Brynley, who better to be his Wyoming tour guide and protector?

As Phineas and Brynley emabark on their Wyoming adventure, Phineas can’t hide the fact that he has been in love with Brynley for awhile and Brynley can’t fight her attraction to Phineas any longer. The sparks fly between these two and the lovin’ is HOT!!!!

Mrs. Sparks throws us a few new characters and some awesome twists and turns.  I am waiting with bated breath for Howard’s book, which is next =)

WUOA is a funny, romantic and emotional roller coaster, with some bad guy butt kicking thrown in.   It is a MUST read for all LOVE AT STAKE fans and a recommended read for fans of comedic paranormal romances.

Stop back by Guilty Pleasures on March 26, Kerrelyn will be our guest blogger!
