Newly vamped Sarah Dearly wants her normal life back, but fate is fighting against her. She tries to get a regular job and gets staked in the interview, only to be rescued by a masked vampire who calls himself the Red Devil. Then a wallflower-turned-witch curses her, making her a bloodthirsty, sun-allergic nightwalker--the worst vampire there is. As if all that weren't enough, she can't get married because her 600-year-old boyfriend, Thierry, is in a centuries-long marriage of convenience he can't escape.
As Sarah's nightwalker tendencies make her more dangerous, even to those she loves, she'll have to counteract that curse, unmask the increasingly intriguing Red Devil, and get a commitment from her man. But if that's what it takes to secure her happiness, Sarah is ready...even if it means embracing her inner vamp to do it.

Posted April 18, 2011 by Mama Meme , OKCI think I like paranormal romance books because there is so much violence in the real world, I like the escape of a world that may...or may not...exist; a world of vampires and shape shifters. Michelle Rowen has woven a five book series that begins with "Bitten and Smitten."
"Stakes and Stilletos" is book three of the series, continuing the adventures in the story of Sarah Dearly. When Sarah has a bad day, it is much worse than simply a bad hair day or runners in stockings. Rowen's main character has so many things that happens to her in the span of a single day that you simply have to chucke, hold on and go along with the ride. I love the character of Sarah Dearly and found myself identifying with her misfortunes.
Warning: it is addictive. If you like Rowen's style, you can't stop with book one...you'll have to read the whole series.
