Review: Be Still My Vampire Heart — Funny and Entertaining!
Be Still My Vampire Heart - Kerrelyn Sparks

 

The best thing about all the books from this series — the ones that I have read so far — is that they don’t take themselves too seriously! They know they are silly and at times, you can even see the characters laughing at themselves or the silliness of the situation they are faced with. These books will make you laugh when you need a light-hearted read. 

Another thing I like about these books is that while the male lead might do his best to be all caveman and overprotective, their female counterparts don’t let that stop them. In this book, the woman is a slayer and human, unlike the vampires she is hunting. The guy, a vampire, tries to order her away from her slaying, but she is having none of it. In the end, he tries to be there for her when she needs him. Smart guy!

Vampire Mine by Kerrelyn Sparks
Vampire Mine - Kerrelyn Sparks

Loved the storyline and the hero. Connor has been dear to my heart from the start of the series. The way he has been dealing with Shanna's father - brilliant.
But Marielle and Connor fell in love too quickly and the heroine was all over the place. She was funny and sassy one moment and the next she was so innocent and sweet. I don't know how explain it - it just felt wrong. So, 3.5 stars.

Eight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon - Kerrelyn Sparks

Minus half a point because the Chameleon made an appearance and is still alive.

 

Unlike the previous two, the H gets along with the king - his brother. So no conflict there. Instead, the challenge is to find out the nature of the curse, and by extension, to save (if possible) the current queen. Unfortunately, she's too far gone. Unfortunately too, the h's being the elf makes her suspect.

 

The H has secrets of his own, though I suspected in the previous book when we first met him. Eventually they figure things out. Not in time to save the queen, and unfortunately that lead the king to attempt to bargain with the one who'd been leading him astray. So the Chameleon can shift into a dragon, but has no fire. And as an Embraced, he can talk in that guise too.

 

I would like to know how they're supposed to kill him. He was roasted, nobody was paying attention, and he turned into a phoenix and escaped to annoy us another book.

Great Continuation of a Great Series
Eight Simple Rules for Dating a Dragon - Kerrelyn Sparks

Gwennore is an elf who grew up on the isle of moon with her adopted sisters. Now that they are moving away and marrying, Gwennore feels a little lost. However, when she visits them at their kingdoms, some of the locals pick on her. While avoiding more rude locals, a dragon takes her niece, so she jumps on him to try to protect her. Little did she know that her life was about to change.

I loved the next adventure in this series. I thought that Siles and Gwennore were there perfect fit for eachother. The story and the characters were very well written and there were a number of funny spots in this book. I can’t wait for the next one. I highly recommend.

**I voluntarily read and reviewed this book

This review can also be found at Carole's Random Life in Books.

This book was just a whole lot of fun! I have been a huge fan of this series since I read an early copy of the first book so I was really looking forward to this newest installment. The fact that I knew that there would be dragons in the book made it all just a little bit better. I went into this book with some pretty high expectations and I am happy to report that they were all met. I read most of this book in a single sitting because I didn't want to put the book down. 

This is the third book in the Embraced series and while this book could be read as a stand alone, I do think that this is a series that works best read in order whenever possible. I have grown to love the characters that appear in this series and had a nice time seeing how some of them are doing. This book focuses on Gwennore and it was really nice to get to know her better in this story. I really like Brody's character and was happy to find that he played a large role in this story as well. 

Gwennore is an elf and like her adopted sisters she has a special power due to her birth date. She has the ability to determine the cause of an illness through touch which makes healing possible. She has a close relationship with her sister's daughter and doesn't hesitate to put her life on the line to protect the child when she is kidnapped by a dragon. Gwennore soon learns that she can speak to dragons and forms a bond with her rescuer, Puff.

Silas is highly respected and carries himself with authority. He is also very easy on the eyes and is the kind of man that can make things happen. He has decided to watch over Gwennore while she is at the castle and takes on the role of protector. With her skills as healer, she can help the people of his country along with the queen. 

I loved Silas and Gwennore together. I really thought that all of their feelings towards each other felt completely authentic. Silas is able to see things in Gwennore that others have missed. She is used to be treated poorly because she is an elf so she is surprised to find that Silas is genuinely interested. They had a lot of chemistry together and I loved the spark that seemed to fill the page when they shared a scene. 

I would recommend this series to others. This was a book that brought a big smile to my face as I turned the pages. I loved that there was just a bit of humor mixed into the story at just the right times. I cannot wait to read more books in this fun series. 

I received an advance reader edition of this book from St. Martin's Press.

Initial Thoughts
I had such a good time with this book. Gwen and Silas were both amazing characters and I loved them together. It was fun to see all of the different abilities of the characters take shape in this story. I really like how a bit of humor is worked into the story just when needed.
