Vampire Russell’s list of New Year’s Resolutions
From Crouching Tiger Forbidden Vampire by Kerrelyn Sparks—
- Do not let the evil villain, Master Han, live to see the New Year.
- Find out why Master Han put me into a coma for 39 freakin’ years!
- Stop staring at the were-tigress Jia. So what if she’s beautiful? I have other things to do. For instance–
- Kill Master Han.
- Refuse Jia’s request to team up with me so we can kill Master Han together. I work alone!
- Rip Master Han’s golden mask off so I can see the bastard’s face before I kill him.
- Delete #5. Consider Jia’s request to team up with me, but still refuse her. Because I work alone, dammit! And I have one mission–
- Terminate Master Han with prejudice.
- Delete #7. Reconsider Jia’s request. She might prove to be helpful. Do I always have to work alone?
- Stop staring at Jia. No matter how much she pleads, I will NOT let her live with me in the bat cave. She’s engaged to a were-tiger prince. This is business, and we have a job to do.
- Exterminate Master Han.
- Delete #10. Set up some ground rules so Jia can share the bat cave with me.
- Rig up a shower curtain so Jia won’t have to see me shower every night.
- Delete #13. It’s unlucky, and if she wants to look at my naked body, who am I to stop her?
- I will NOT think about kissing Jia. She’s engaged. And she’s a were-tigress. If I make a pass at her, she might scratch my eyes out.
- Make sure her claws are trimmed.
- Do NOT kiss her again!
- Oh hell, I’m screwed. But we WILL kill Master Han!!
New York Times bestselling author Kerrelyn Sparks delivers the exciting conclusion in the Love at Stake series, where a Marine-turned-vampire finds love with the shifter princess forbidden to him…
Russell wakes from a coma to find he’s become a vampire. Now he has a thirst for revenge. Determined to hunt down the master vampire who turned him, he’s used to working alone . . . until he meets Jia. She is after the same vampire for murdering her parents and insists she can help Russell on this mission. Reluctantly, he agrees, and sets up some ground rules:
Rule #1: Their partnership is strictly business. If he holds her a little too close . . . if she looks at him with those exotic eyes . . . well, that has to stop.
Rule #2: He’s in charge. Jia isn’t used to taking orders and questions every move he makes. So he stops her the only way he knows how.
Rule #3: Don’t fall in love. But the kiss that was supposed to quiet her awakens something else in him . . . something forbidden. Because Jia is engaged. To someone else.

After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.
While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).
