Wanted: Undead or Alive
by Kerrelyn Sparks

He's a vampire from the big city . . .

Phineas McKinney thought New York City was tough, until he was attacked by Malcontents—evil vampires who consider mortals to be snacks. Saved by the good vampires, Phin swore to devote his now undead life to stopping the Malcontents. He's got his job cut out for him when word comes that their enemy may be hiding in Wyoming. What does a city boy like him know about horses and campfires? Good thing he's got Brynley Jones with him . . . if only she didn't hate every vampire on earth.

She's a werewolf princess . . .

Bryn believes vampires are seductive and charming, and that makes them dangerous. So she's more than a little annoyed about teaming up with Phin, even if he is the only bloodsucker able to make her inner wolf purr. But as they hunt down the new leader of the Malcontents, danger threatens . . . and Phineas and Brynley discover a passion that will rock the foundation of their supernatural world.

Wanted: Undead or Alive is #12 of the Love at Stake series. Although I knew almost from the beginning that I've apparently missed a book or two in the series, it wasn't because these books can't stand alone. It was because mention was made of this or that character who's married now, and I realized I missed their story.

I'm sure it comes as no surprise that I really loved this book. This is the story of Phineas Mckinney, vampire, AKA Dr. Phang, AKA the Love Doctor. When he's not working for McKay Security he's making commercials for Blardonnay, which is how most of the female paranormal population sees him - the Blardonnay Guy.

When Phineas teams up with vampire-hating werewolf Brynley, it's no surprise that sparks fly but those sparks are soon fanning the flames of love - after all, opposites attract. There's lots of action, lots of suspense, and lots of romance, all brought together into a story that you won't be able to put down. I loved the characters and the way Phineas helped Brynley break down her emotional walls. And I really loved the touch of humour throughout.

You can buy your own copy of this book at your local bookstore or from Amazon.
