Three signs that something is very different with your mew man:

1. He sleeps all day . . . which would be annoying except he's so attentive at night.

2. He's attacked by sword-wielding assailants, yet insists he can handle it on his own.

3. He never seems to age.

Heather Westfield has always lived a quiet life, but that all changes when she helps a very handsome, very mysterious stranger. There's something not quite right about Jean-Luc, but still, she's never been with a man so charming, so attractive . . . so wonderful. Now if only a murderous villain wasn't after them, they might get their happily-ever-after.

Kerrelyn Sparks is the bestselling author of the Love at Stake series, which has hit as high as number 5 on theNew York Timeslist and 22 on theUSA Todaylist. Kerrelyn is honored that her band of merry vampires and shifters is spreading love and laughter worldwide in fourteen different languages.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I wanted to like it but didn't ... I really wanted to like this book. When we met Jean-Luc in the first few books in the series I thought he had so much character and would get an exciting book but this was far from it. The beginning was good but I was not engaged enough to keep reading. I could only read a couple chapters at a time before I was bored or totally annoyed by the secondary human characters that were basically just bullies to our heroine. Not the complex villains we love to hate, but just ignorant bullies I have no time to waste on. Jean-Luc unfortunately was not the romantic Frenchman except that he carried a sword in his cane and liked to duel. I had to keep reminding myself to read his words In a French accent otherwise he could have been anyone. Just when the romance was finally starting to build, they kiss and Jean-Luc thinks her tasting like mustard and relish was exotic. Maybe that line was supposed to be funny but that just killed it for me. #plumreview

Rated 5 out of 5 by from "The Undead Next Door" by Kerrelyn Sparks. Book 4 in the Love at Stake series. This is the story of Jean-Luc and Heather. I really liked their story! The character of Heather was very relatable. And Jean-Luc's back story pulls at your heart-strings. Really really liked it.

So he opens a shop in Texas near a small town and once it closes he will be in exile for 25 years. Heather is a school teacher with a young daughter and is trying to recover from her failed marriage. When she is offered her dream job as a designer at the new clothing shop, she is thrilled, but also a bit suspicious.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Meh? This was the first book in the series that I read and I wasn't too fussy about it. I didn't like Heather's character. She just felt like used goods to me. Always doing what her mother wants, encluding marrying a man she doesn't really want. Wasn't fussy on the hero, Jean Luc either. Maybe it was because he was french. I was already reading another vamp series at the time and the main vamp in that was french too and would have kicked that guys butt! While I didn't love the characters in this one(at the time) the story was good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Jean-Luc Finally Gets His Story This is the 4th book in the Love at Stake series - where most vampires drink synthetic blood and don't hurt humans in any way, even though vampires are still in hiding. Unfortunately, the Malcontents are still feeding on humans and it looks like a Vampire War is gearing up - to the detriment of humans everywhere. In this series, we met a whole host of vampires in the first book, and one by one they are getting their (lurve) story told. This time is it Jean-Luc's turn. He is the Coven master of Western Europe and a fashion designer to the stars. Unfortunately, the press has noticed he doesn't seem to be aging, so he is going to hide out in Texas for 25 years until he can pretend to be his own son. At the opening for his new store he meets Heather - size 12 and proud of it. Jean-Luc is very happy to see a woman who isn't all points and angles like his models. But then a terrifying vampire from Jean-Luc's past shows up and Heather is put into danger. Jean-Luc remembers why he can never love again. Will the vampire threat once again keep him from love? These are great books with just the right amount of humour, action, continuing plot (regarding the vampire war and other characters that we have already met) and romance/sex - hot but not too much. I just found out that the next in the series comes out in October and will star Ian!! Squee!! I can't wait!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An Amazing Read And A Good Laugh The Undead Next Door is a really nice yet sexy paranormal read , Kerrelyn Sparks has lots of laughs, and romance, and I loved her choice of characters. The book was a bit slow in the middle but was still a grade A read as far as I’m concerned.
