The Undead Next Door - A Book Review by Voodoo Bride

The Undead Next Door by Kerrelyn Sparks (Love at Stake #4)

What is it about:
Three signs that something is very different with your new man:
He sleeps all day…which would be annoying except he’s so attentive at night.
He’s attacked by sword-wielding assailants, yet insists he can handle it on his own.
He never seems to age.

Heather Westfield has always lived a quiet life, but that all changes when she helps a very handsome, very mysterious stranger. There’s something not quite right about Jean-Luc, but still, she’s never been with a man so charming, so attractive…so wonderful. Now if only a murderous villain wasn’t after them, they might get their happily-ever-after.

What did Voodoo Bride think of it:
Yes, I'm totally reading this series out of order, but I couldn't resist a French vampire! Just as The Vampire and The Virgin this book is a nice, fun, romantic read. On the positive side there wasn't as much Scottish accent thrown around as in that book, but on the negative side the romantic tension was less, but that might be because Heather had a little daughter running around so her attention was divided. What I do like is that the romance and the action are nicely in balance in these books and that they're light, entertaining reads so I will surely read more in this series.

Why should you read it:
Looking for a light, entertaining, vampire romance? This might be your book.

I don't think I've ever read a vampire romance with a little kid running around. Could make things better or much worse.

Hi Sullivan :D

Just dropping by to tell you personally that I LOVED the *Orlando and Me* you wrote for Velvet!

I had a bad feeling from the start, but I was still rootin' for your 'mixed' relationship to work out lol

Keep up the stellar writing!
