Kerrelyn Sparks / Lisa Kleypas

Dougal Kincaid has something to prove. After being injured in a battle with the Malcontents, he's ready for active duty protecting unsuspecting mortals from these villainous vampires who want to rule the world. But first he has to get control of himself . . . because just the sight of a certain lovely doctor has his injured hand doing some peculiar things, not to mention the sizzling sensation that burns along his dragon tattoo.
Vampires? Vampires?! As a scientist, Leah is having trouble believing that these immortal creatures exist. But there they are, standing in front of her, asking for help in solving a genetic puzzle that can save mankind. There's even one in a sexy kilt! Just one look into Dougal's gorgeous green eyes sets her pulse racing. But can she trust him—and the overwhelming desire that refuses to be ignored?

Comment: This story is the most recent installment in the Love at Stake series by Kerrelyn Sparks. I consider myself a fan but this book didn't manage to have a romance as strong as other before. I thought it was pushed and seemed rushed every time. The plot was actually better because it provided some developments in the overall story line. I hope the following one can have a better balance which I thought this one didn't.
Grade: 6/10

All London is at Julia Wentworth's feet—and anything she desires is hers for the asking. But the glamorous leading lady guards a shocking secret: a mystery husband whom she does not know, dares not mention ... and cannot love.
For years Damon Savage has been searching for the stranger his parents wed him to without his consent, hoping to legally free himself from matrimony's invisible chains. And he is astonished to discover his "bride" is none other than the exquisite lady he'd hoped to make his mistress! But though his wife by law, Julia will never truly be Damon's—until he conquers her fears, his formidable rivals ... and her proud, passionate, and independent heart.

Comment: This book was romantic, and I liked both main characters. Their romance was a bit
unbelievable and I confess I was hoping for the to hurry up already...but in the end,all was well.
But I had the feeling while reading, this set was full of cynicism and coolness, meaning, everything was treated with such distance, such method I thought feelings didn't really matter. Nevertheless, I was happy for the couple, I liked reading this and I am interested in reading the sequel. 
Grade: 6/10
