Vampire Mine By Kerrelyn Sparks

Vampire Mine (Love at Stake #10)

Genre: Paranormal Romance


Nothing on earth can make this vampire fall in love . . .

After 499 years of existence, Connor Buchanan has arrived at an inescapable conclusion: he is a cold-hearted SOB. He's been watching his friends—those poor romantic fools—plummet off the cliff into love like a dazed herd of sheep. But not Connor. He knows that love leads to nothing but heartache.
Until Marielle . . .

She is an angel cast down from heaven for disobedience. Trapped in mortal form, she finds a protector in Connor, a Scottish vampire haunted by a dark past. Marielle hopes to heal his broken heart and earn her way back home, but suddenly she has these . . . feelings. This strange yet pleasant physical yearning—for a vampire! Is this the work of a demon luring her into hell, or has this angel found heavenly bliss?


Connor is on the hunt for Casmir when he stumbles onto Marielle being banished by who he thinks is a member of Casimir’s followers, malcontents. She is hurt and he decided to get her to safety, in information she may have could be of use to him and the others. As it turns out Marielle is an angel, banished by Zackriel, or so it seems, sent to earth in a human body without her wings, a body that if anyone touches they die, unless of course they are already dead. Marielle’s revelation of using the bathroom and her new state to Connor was hilarious;

“I believe I did it correctly,” she announced proudly.

“That’s good.” He guzzled down some blood.
Doona think about making love.

“And I discovered something amazing. I have an entire set of female private parts.”

He spewed blood into the sink.”

I loved Marielle’s innocent nature through-out the story and I loved the way Connor spoke and his desperate attempts to not think of Marielle in a sexual way at the start, made for some real funny and cute moments. There are quite a few twists in this book that keep you guessing. One of the things that is great about a Kerrelyn Sparks read is that once you get into the story before you know it you have read it all and find yourself wanting more.

Is this series one continous one like BDB where you can't skip a book or is it like Dark-Hunters? The book sounds interesting.

It's like the Dark-Hunters where you can skip a book if you want :)
I haven't read some of the first few in the series myself, it doesn't effect the reading or anything.
