How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire


I was at the library today browsing when I found the book How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire by Kerrelyn Sparks. When I read the back cover, i remembered that I read this description somewhere before on the Internet. I had added to my wish list a long time ago. Of course I checked it out and I am glad that I did.

The title How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire is deceiving. This book is not a how to book, where the heroine is trying to fine and marry a rich vampire. It is about Roman Draganesti, a very wealthy vampire, who has lost one of his fangs. He has to find a dentist, before his natural healing powers closes the wound.

He finds a dentist office that is open 24 hours. Shanna Whelan is the dentist on duty. Shanna has her own list of problems. Her best friend was gunned down in front of her. She is on the Russian mob hit list. How can she continue her career as a dentist when she is afraid of the site of blood.

Roman arrives just in time to save Shanna from an assassination attempt on her life. He decides to put Shanna in his protection esp seeing another vampire was hunting for Shanna. Causing the wrath of the other vampire when he finds out.

A better title for this book would have been The Dentist and The Vampire.

How to Marry a Vampire is a humorous and exciting read. When Shanna woke up next to Roman and she thinks that he is dead. She then tries to convince everyone in the house that he is dead. All of Roman's support staff are telling her he is not. I was laughing out loud when I was reading this part. Very funny at least I thought so.

How to Marry a Vampire is the first book in the Love At Stake series. I believe that there are seven books in this series. If they are as fun as the first one it should be a good series. I am looking forward to finding and reading the rest of the books in this series.

I have to rate this book 5 stars. As it did met the criteria. I only put it down when I went to eat with my husband and when I had to go to the bathroom. Oops was that to much information. Sorry.

Happy Reading

sounds like an interesting vampire novel...though the title may not accurately reflect the plot.

Sounds like a good book and I agree, The Dentist and the Vampire is a much better title and much more interesting too!
