I wondered how Kerrelyn Sparks was going to write Connorís story. Who would take down this skeptical, sarcastic, albeit sexy vampire? It had to be someone special. I never would have guessed, but Ms. Sparks had it all in hand and she produced one of my favorites in the Love at Stake series so far.

Connor Buchanan is quickly losing his patience...okay, he has lost patience with his fellow vampires. Theyíre all getting married and theyíre...happy! Well, he is not going to follow their foolish example. He knows from experience what can happen when a vampire loves someone. Especially a mortal. Connor knows he is a cantankerous rebel who works best alone. He didnít need that to change. At least he thought so until he met Marielle.

Marielle has trouble following orders. She has been caught disobeying commands and is being disciplined for her rebellious nature when Connor finds her. Marielle is too weak to warn him away and the next thing she knows she is in a doctorís office surrounded by vampires. She needs to find her way back home and Connor has agreed to help her. It is a long and difficult road, but Connor and Marielle make a formidable team.

There is so much more to this wonderful read, but there is no way Iím going to ruin the surprise of this book. Suffice it to say that Kerrelyn Sparks is at her best and Vampire Mine is an inspiration. Connorís story is emotional and perfect. I couldnít have asked for a better book. Recurring characters serve to enhance the plot and the heat level is dangerous.

I recommend reading the series in order; otherwise, the reader may feel lost at times.
