Review: Stakes & Stilettos by Michelle Rowen

Reluctant vampire Sarah Dearly is trying her best to return to a normal life. She’s interviewing for a job and getting ready to attend her 10-year high school reunion. When the interview goes south, instead of getting a dream job she gets staked. With the stake just centimeters from her heart she’s saved by a masked vampire calling himself the Red Devil. A vamp who was thought to be an urban legend, he’s rumored to have been saving vamps from the hunters for hundreds of years but Sara’s master boyfriend Thierry has a bad feeling about this so called savior.

With Thierry’s healing blood in her Sarah’s injury heals quickly and they’re off to the reunion. Instead of touching base with old friends she gets cursed by a witch holding a ten year grudge. Sarah is showing all the signs of becoming a nightwalker. She can’t go out in the sun, can’t enter a house unless invited and she has a sudden urge to chomp on all her friends.

Worse yet while Sarah’s figuring out how to break the curse Thierry’s busy trying to annul his marriage to the beautiful Veronique and when the Red Devil comes to extract his payment for saving her Sarah is caught without the bodyguards Thierry provided.

I so love this series but I wish this one didn’t end in such a HUGE cliffhanger! Now I have to wait until August when Tall, Dark & Fangsome is released. I hope Sarah and Thierry resolve their relationship soon.

Sarah is such a fun character. I always love the snarky, quick with a comeback characters. I want to be like them when I grow up. LOL With Thierry and his serious and calming nature they balance each other out perfectly. Then you add secondary characters that are loveable yet you don’t know if they’re trustworthy and you have a great cast. The entire series is a must read for paranormal lovers.
