Emma Watson has made it her mission to get revenge on the monsters who killed her parents. As a member of the CIA's Stakeandndash;Out team, Emma's got no time to distinguish betweeen good vamps and bad. They're all bloodthirsty murderers and she will not rest until they're defeated.
When Angus MacKay is assigned to find a vampire slayer, he never expected to meet anyone like Emma Watson. Now, deeply attracted to the young woman, Angus must convince her that not all vampires are evilandndash;andndash;before she finds out who he is and adds him to her hit list. But Angus and Emma soon have bigger problems when someone from Angus's past resurfaces with an agenda of her own to fulfill...
Be Still My Vampire Heart, is the third installment in the Love at Stake series by Kerrelyn Sparks. I came across this book and decided to give it a go. And am I ever glad I did. I usually read a series from the start, but since these books are pretty much stand alone, it's not necessary. If you are looking to start from the beginning, book one is called 'How to Marry a
Millionaire Vampire '. I realized that when starting with book 3, I would have missed some inside information about the characters or plot lines but I'm happy to say, I followed along easily.
First off, who doesn't like a Scottish Highlander man? Their accents and bravery are to die for. Angus MacKay is my new favorite Highlander. He's strong, gorgeous, protective and witty. (Checking to see if all of him made it there, after teleporting..too cute)
Emma Wallace is a member of the CIA's vampire hunter squad. And unlike some, she loves her work. Emma She doesn't just work for the Vampire Hunter Squad, she's also the vampire slayer. The person killing vampires at central park, and getting the unwanted attention of the vampires.
In Emmas mind, the only good vampire is a dead vampire. That is, until she meets Angus MacKay, a kilt-wearing Scottish warrior.Angus MacKay is out to stop Emma from slaying vampires. Not to save the vampires, but to save herself from being killed. A human doesn't stand a chance against vampires. No even one as kick-ass as Emma.
I really enjoyed the banter between Angus and Emma, they are both smart, kick-ass characters. I absolutely loved Angus's accent, and the conflict and tension between Shanna and her father was interesting. I will be picking the rest of the series up for sure. I enjoy Sparks's writing and can't wait to
see what's next!
