How to marry a millionaire vampire by Kerrelyn Sparks, 384 pages, read by Robin, on 02/19/2012

How to marry a millionaire vampireThis is the first book in the “Love At Stake” series. The premise of the book is that there are a group of vampires, led by alpha-men heroes who battle the “Malcontents” who still insist on biting their victims. The hero of this book, Roman, has created a line of synthetic blood (some of which is used for humans) for the good vampires to drink. This makes him the millionaire vampire of the title. It’s clear that the book is intended to be funny, and there are some amusing parts, but the humor gets silly after a while and the heroine is a nit-wit. To make Shanna, our heroine in the novel, funny, the author also makes her unbearably silly. The story itself is ok, and I plan to read (and review) the second in the series, but if it’s no better than this one, that will be the end of the series for me.

The romance was not all that satisfyingly written, the humor sometimes fell flat and the sexual tension in the book was pretty much non-existant.
