New vampire Sarah Dearly wants nothing more than to lead as normal a life as possible but circumstances beyond her control are making her life difficult. Sarah is lured into a trap by a friend, rescued by a man known only as the Red Devil, cursed by a psychotic witch, and is having commitment issues with her several centuries older vampire boyfriend, Thierry, who’s married to another. So Sarah has her plate full trying to find out the Red Devil’s intentions, break the witch’s curse that’s turned her into a blood thirsty nightwalker with an adverse reaction to sunlight and try to get her boyfriend’s wife to divorce him so she can marry him. Sounds easy right? Sarah has a short time to fix her problems before all hope is lost.
Stakes & Stilettos is a great addition to the Immortality Bites series and will have readers chomping at the bit for more. Sarah is charming in her naiveté and determination in getting what she wants. Thierry is sinfully delicious and his apparent love for Sarah is enough to have readers sighing in yearning for a Thierry of their own. Michelle Rowen fantastically creates characters that are quirky and captivating and grab your attention from page one. Michelle Rowen is a fabulous author and one that I look forward to reading and know won’t fail to make me grin and captivate me.
