Stakes and Stilettos by Michelle Rowan

May 3rd, 2009 by Debbie's World of Books


Thanks to Anna at Hachette Book Group for the opportunity to review this book.

I give it 3 out of 5 stars.

Description: Newly vamped Sarah Dearly wants her normal life back, but fate is fighting against her. She tries to get a regular job and gets staked in the interview, only to be rescued by a masked vampire who calls himself the Red Devil. Then a wallflower-turned-witch curses her, making her a bloodthirsty, sun-allergic nightwalker–the worst vampire there is. As if all that weren’t enough, she can’t get married because her 600-year-old boyfriend, Thierry, is in a centuries-long marriage of convenience he can’t escape.

As Sarah’s nightwalker tendencies make her more dangerous, even to those she loves, she’ll have to counteract that curse, unmask the increasingly intriguing Red Devil, and get a commitment from her man. But if that’s what it takes to secure her happiness, Sarah is ready…even if it means embracing her inner vamp to do it.

It took me about 100 pages to get into the book, maybe because I haven’t read the earlier books in the series so I still had to get a feel for the characters.  Sarah struck me as sort of a ditz but Thierry definitely strikes me as one of those guys you have to sigh and stare at thnking they are hot but you can never get near them.  Once the story did draw me in I could not wait until the end only to find it was a cliff hanger.  You have to read the next book to find out what happens so of course I am now on pins and needles waiting for the next (and I believe last) book in the series to come out.  Not only do I want to find out what happens with Sarah’s curse but Thierry’s wife, Veronique, also intrigues me.  I’m curious if she only wants to hold onto Thierry because she can’t stand that he would rather have someone else or if there is something more.   This book is a nice addition to the library of vampire romance lovers.
