Kerrelyn Sparks – Love at Stake Series Reading order:

by Maryse on March 22, 2009 · 35 comments

in Kerrelyn Sparks, My Book Reviews, Reading Order Guide:

About the series, as per the author’s website:

Welcome to the dangerous—and hilarious—world of modern day vampires. There are vampire cable channels, a celebrity magazine called Live with the Undead, and just like the living, vampires have dental emergencies. That’s how dentist Shanna Whelan, a mortal female, meets the smolderingly undead Roman Draganesti, and finds her life turning absolutely batty…


Quick blurb from the author’s FAQ page:

Question: How long will the Love at Stake series go on?

Answer: I am currently under contract for books 9 through 12. If you keep buying them, it could last longer than that!

Dear Kerrelyn,
When is your next “Love At Stakes” book coming out???? I read “The Vampire & The Virgin” first then I got all the rest & read them in order including the last again. Please let me know when your next book comes out?
I am 63 and hung up with paranormal romance books. It all started with the “Twilight” books. I never read before and now I can’t get enough. I love your books.

Hi Cheryl!

I’ve updated the reading order guide to include the latest books, including the next book to be released (Eat Prey Love) – will be released on September 28, 2010

Also, here is the author’s website:

Hope this helps!

To Kerrelyn,
I love the books i started with “Forbidden nights with a vampire” and bounced around to the 6th and 7th i didnt realize it was a series untill the second book i picked up and noticed all the same characters. You’ve created an amazing world in these books. Keep going I’m always so upset when a series ends.

Samantha C November 22, 2010 at 11:37 PM

I’ve read your whole series. I love them, I was wondering when you were going to come out with a book with Conner. He’s so serous and needs a little fun. Don’t stop writing it took me forever to fine out who this next book was about. I screamed:) I LOVED Carlos, so sexy. You give me great ideas for my books. Thank you!

Maryse November 30, 2010 at 9:44 AM

Hi Samantha! Connor’s book is next I believe…

Hi Helen!

April 29th :) I just added it into the list.

Helen March 6, 2014 at 8:07 AM

I’m reading “Vamps in the City” and read this line with Maggie saying Sir Francis Drake put the coat down for his queen but I thought it was Sir Walter Raleigh. I looked it up:

It refers to a legend regarding Sir Walter Raleigh, which probably never happened:
By 1581, after a number of military and naval engagements in France, Ireland and elsewhere, he had become established as a courtier and as Elizabeth’s favourite. The story that he once took off an expensive cloak and threw it over a mud puddle for Queen Elizabeth to walk across illustrates Raleigh’s flamboyant manner—the event probably never happened, but everyone had come to expect that sort of thing from Raleigh, and Elizabeth always favoured that kind of showmanship.

Hi, Kerrelyn, just finished “How to Seduce A Vampire”. loved it! Sure hope you continue the series. Waiting patiently for next one!

Thanks for the great reads.


Nikki June 24, 2014 at 9:28 AM

LOOOVVVEEE These books!! My top 3 stories in the series are:
1. EAT PREY LOVE – Carlos and Caitlyn’s story
2. WANTED: UNDEAD OF ALIVE – Phineas and Brynley’s story
3. How To Seduce a Vampire (Without Really Trying) – Zoltan and Neona’s story

But all the books are really great and unique. My favorite part is the fact that we get to catch glimpses of all the characters lives even if they aren’t the main focus. Dragon Nest Academy is a genius idea and learning about the families and the kids associated with each couple is great.

I’m really excited about Russell’s book and I hope there will be more books to come after his is finished! I really want Rajiv to have a book, I like the books associated with Asia and would love to find out more about Tiger Town.

This book series is one of the best and most detailed Vampire Series ever. I’d suggest this book series to anyone who wants both great romance and great adventure with their Paranormal Romance.

Lindy July 17, 2014 at 3:11 PM

Are you going to write a book for JL, Rajiv and we can’t forget Laszlo??!! I LOVE this series!!! Please continue with them!!!!

samantha July 18, 2014 at 6:07 AM

Hey, I’m a huge fan of your love at stake series. I’m actually currently started reading it again from book 1. I would also love to know if Laszlo, JL amd Rajiv finds love, as well as Stanislav. Love your books. Please don’t stop writing them, thank you.

Wendy January 19, 2015 at 9:03 AM

Oh wow. I only recently joined and party and started reading this series. I gotta say, after the first book I couldn’t stop! I read through all 18 of the Love at Stake books in less than a month!!
Wondering when the next one will come out and how many more will there be? Not that I’d want the series to end but I can’t wait to get my hands in the next one (and the ending)

Anna Deschamps April 19, 2015 at 9:26 AM

i am an avid reader of your books i have the vamp series,and am in the process of ordering the last 3 books i don;t have .My wish is that you will continue this series,there are so many characters left to write about love them all.

Mary Nickerson July 13, 2015 at 9:50 PM

All of Kerrilyns “Stake” series are fabulous! I am so glad that someone told me about her books!

Tianna January 16, 2016 at 8:34 PM

Rereading the series and still love these stories sooo much. I love the characters and I’m currently waiting for the latest book (Russell) to be shipped to my house. I really hope there’s more books to come.

Monique April 2, 2016 at 1:18 PM

I LOVE this series! I started them about three months ago and I just downloaded the last book!! I HOPE this isn’t the last book in the series! Please tell me you have more coming!?

Betty May 3, 2016 at 5:01 PM

Tanya February 19, 2017 at 6:26 AM

When does rajiv, lady, Pamela, Maria c, Laszlo, cora Lee,Princess jasmine, and other singles get together with a partner like the others in their families and friends.
Love at stake books. Love these books and people.

gshewgill July 17, 2017 at 12:55 AM

I love this series and I found about this author by chance. My library had a display on Valentine’s Day with romance books wrapped in gift wrap with only the genre on the label. You picked a PNR to take to the checkout desk, unwrapped it to sign it out. And soon I was reading the whole series.

Maryse July 17, 2017 at 11:24 AM

What a cool program!!! And an excellent way to discover a series. This one is hilarious! And super-steamy!!

Linda September 25, 2018 at 5:48 PM

I also love the whole series, my all time favorite is the secret life of a vampire. Love Jack.
