Vampire Mine is the tenth installment in the Love At Stake Series by Kerrelyn Sparks. Vampire Mine was a pure delight, and had me thirsting for more after each page. Ever since I started reading this series, I have looked forward to when Connor would make his downfall to love, and Kerrelyn Sparks didn’t disappoint….I just fell in love with Marielle, she had such a innocence about her, very curious about everything (which was hilarious at times) that you couldn’t help but like her. Connor is very rough around the edges, but in this story we see a different side of him, a side that Marielle brings out in him. Vampire Mine was such a endearing read, and one of my favorite romances to read. The story was filled with adventure, witty interaction, passion and a tender love story that will leave you breathless. Definitely a jewel you don’t want to miss out on. I Loved it!!

“What did ye talk about with the ladies?”
“Lots of things,” she replied ” The Three step rule, oral sex-“
“Holy Christ Almighty” He pressed a hand to his brow. “They were supposed to teach you how to shampoo yer hair, no’ give you instructions on oral sex!”
