Wild About You (Love at Stake #13) by Kerrelyn Sparks

Handsome Howard...

Hunky Howard...
Hot Howard...

It's not every day that Elsa Bjornberg feels delicate, not when she hosts a home renovation show where she can effortlessly demolish a kitchen. But from the moment she meets Howard Barr, this bear of a man makes her feel like a woman. And the way he looks at her, as if she were a pot of honey he'd like to lick...

Howard is not like most men. For one thing, he's a shapeshifter. And he always thought his celebrity crush would never amount to anything more than drooling at Elsa on TV. When his meddling vampire employer gets involved, the star is suddenly within his grasp—and within a hair of her life. For an ancient curse forbids their newfound love, and Howard is suddenly torn between his desire for her and his desire to keep her alive.

If you've read Kerrelyn Sparks already, you know what to expect...a book that will make you laugh with glee and throw your hands up in the air and say 'Oh my won't believe what I just read!' to your friends.  Sparks has that rare ability to not only pull you into the story, but to overwhelm you with emotion and make you excited that you're reading.

The characters are a little different, even for paranormal and I love them dearly.  You can't get much better than a crazy aunt who uses birds in attempted murder!  As for the storyline, for me it was all about taking down evil and figuring out a mysterious curse. Both kept me frantically turning pages.  At one point in the book I had to actually set it down because I was so invested and had to pull back to reality for a few minutes.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.

Thank you for taking time out of your day to leave a comment. It's appreciated.
