A night out has an unexpected ending for Marissa Spencer. Ending up on the wrong side of town, she stumbles into a bar and is attacked by ten men. When all hope seems lost, a dark stranger saves her and sweeps her away to his huge estate and into the midst of a world she’d never thought could be real. How could she have known that her savior was, in truth, a shape-shifter? Who would have thought that the gorgeous black panther with the golden torq was really the man of her dreams? She could only hope that she’d found the Pick of the Litter.

Pick Of The Litter hits you right off with our heroine, Marissa Spencer, being attacked by eight men in a filthy bar on the wrong side of town. Gang rape was what they had in mind but with the appearance of our hero, Lukah Alexandros, Marissa was only raped by one man. This scene plays an important part to the entire story. These ne’er-do-wells show up later in the story to again confront our heroine.

Posing as lovers shouldn’t be too hard. Not for Jessica and Chase. Fooling around during their training mission had landed them in this mess when they couldn’t keep their hands off each other. Now they need to redeem themselves by gaining the trust of one of the country’s greatest criminals. But with Erik Hardaway’s suspicion of Jessica and Chase’s relationship, his questions about their reasons for visiting his mansion, and Erik’s obvious desire for her, getting out of this situation alive and unscathed will be their biggest challenge ever.

I enjoyed both Chase and Jessica’s characters. I thought they both were very likable and very efficient at their jobs as agents. Jessica struck me as trying too hard to get the job done. It’s mentioned in the story that other characters did not care too much for the way Jessica worked but I thought that she just overcompensated for things she thought she owed. I felt she deliberately denied her feelings for Chase and had difficulties trusting in him. Point in fact was when Chase asked her straight out about her pet, I felt that Jessica should have trusted Chase enough to tell him the truth. I thought it was great how Chase used sex when he became frustrated with Jessica. I loved that Chase stays with Jessica through thick and thin and helps her realize her true feelings.

Mary Elizabeth’s life is spiraling out of control. Her twin sister, Babs, was killed in an automobile accident. Her bereaved brother-in- law has decided now is a good time to renew their college romance, and her healthy, domineering mother is demanding that she move back home and slave, ah, make that care for her. What’s a woman to do? Get the heck out of Dodge! She jumps on the promotion offered by best friend, Kiesha Morgan, and moves to Refuge, NC. The last thing she wants or needs is a man. She’s got enough going on in her life.

Hugh Mosely owns and operates Refuge’s only eating establishment. As a favor to Alex Morgan, good friend and alpha of the Raven Pack, he agrees to rent the empty apartment above his diner to Mary Elizabeth and keep an eye on her. Hugh is also a were-bear who’s actively searching for a mate, a she-bear he can breed with and continue his nearly extinct species. Despite his nearly overwhelming, instant attraction to Mary Elizabeth, he has no interest in human females.

Toni Duncan’s Christmas Wish List

1 Springing my best friend from the psych ward.

2 Living somewhere that doesn’t have coffins in the basement. Occupied coffins.

3 Finding Mr. Right. Please make him tall, dark, handsome, and ALIVE.

This Christmas isn’t so merry for Toni. Her best friend’s been locked up in a mental hospital ever since she told the police she was attacked by vampires, and the only way for Toni to get her out is to prove that bloodsuckers really do exist. So she’s taken a job as a bodyguard for the Undead, but she gets more than she’s bargained for, especially when she meets Ian MacPhie, a Scottish rascal looking for Ms. Right.

Although Ian’s nearly five centuries old, he looks and acts like a twenty-seven-year-old hunk. How can a dead man be so damn sexy?  Could Mr. Wrong be Mr. Right?  One forbidden kiss could lead to an eternity of passion—and all it takes is one moment under the mistletoe . . .

All I Want For Christmas Is A Vampire is the fifth book in Ms. Sparks Love at Stake series and I for one am glad that it has finally arrived. I love the characters and can’t wait to find out more about each and every one of them.
