PNR Review: Sexiest Vampire Alive (Love at Stake) [Mass Market Paperback]

I've finished "Sexiest Vampire Alive" the book in her Love at Stake series by Kerrelyn Sparks.

Product Description

The secret is out . . . Vampires do exist!

When a video reveals to the world that vampires live among us, it's up to "young" vamp Gregori Holstein, VP of Marketing, to persuade the U.S. government to declare the video a hoax. But first the president wants a favor, one that requires Gregori to spend forty-eight hours in very close contact with the First Daughter.

Abby Tucker would rather spend her nights in a lab than attend her father's state dinners. She's dedicated her life to finding a cure that will save her dying mother and needs only two more ingredients. To find them, she'll have to venture into the most dangerous region of the world — with a vampire. Her Armani-clad escort may be Undead, but he still makes her heart race. And the greatest danger won't be the predatory hordes lying in wait for them; it will be her undying desire for the Sexiest Vampire Alive.

About the Author

Kerrelyn Sparks is the New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of the Love at Stake series. Each book in the series has landed on the USA Today bestseller list, but when the fourth book, The Undead Next Door, jumped onto the New York Times list at #14, even the Undead sat up and took notice. That same book was nominated (not by the Undead) for the RITA Award for best paranormal romance of 2008.

My Review:
Gregory Hostein is Romatech Industries Marketing Vice President who is watching an ad being filmed at the Vampire Digital Network when Robby MacKay and Rajiv a were-tiger arrive to bring him back to headquarters where CEO Roman and Angus the security chief want to talk to him.  When he back they inform him of a video showing Malcontent Casmir getting his head chopped off has gone viral on YouTube.  They ask him if he drinks human blood but he says he drinks bottled blood.  

Sean Whelan a recently converted former CIA agent is assigned to escort him to a meeting with President Tucker.  Gregory believes his instructions are too weak to seek protection from the President of the United States and devises a Plan B and Plan C.  Plan B is to become allies and Plan C is to protect humans from the Malcontents.

During his meeting he learns that Belinda the First Lady is very ill and Madison his daughter is hosting the White House events.  He also learns there is an older daughter Abagail a scientist.  At the meeting he realizes no one trusts him so he demonstrates some skills they have.  The President asks Gregory to escort his daughters to New York and if Abagail trusts him he will take her on a Special Trip to China to collect three plants she hopes will save her mom's life.

I really enjoyed how the vampire existence is out in the open and the President trusted Gregory to take care of his daughters.  It was hilarious to see Gregory known as "The Playboy" falling for the brainy scientist.  Glad to see that Gregory didn't give up on courting Abby even though she was mean to him.

It was a delight to see Sean Whelan trying to convince his fellow CIA agents he's still human, Howard Barr the bear with his Bear Claws, more of weretiger Rajiv and J.L. Wang and Marielle's friend the healing Angel.  No Connor or Marielle since they are still on their honeymoon.

I highly recommend this sexy series if you like a light and funny read.
