“It was a little tongue in cheek and was a lot of fun.”
~ Under the Covers

I have had this book on my kindle since February 2011…it’s only taken my 8 years to finally pick it up! Which, is one of the reasons I really love our Romanceopoly challenge, it’s got me checking through all my books and giving me an excuse to finally pick up some of the older titles. Of course, when you’re picking up older releases it does mean you run the risk of them feeling a little dated. How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire was originally published in 2005, 14 years on it definitely feels *ponders for a second* like a classic old skool paranormal romance.

It felt nostalgic reading this book, it took me back to when I first started reading paranormal romances and the likes of Christine Warren, Lynsay Sands and Shelley Laurenston were bringing out the first installments of their paranormal series. They all excelled at bringing our paranormal romance that was sexy, fun and didn’t take itself too seriously. Which perfectly describes How to Marry a Millionaire Vampire. It was a little tongue in cheek and was a lot of fun.

The romance aspect between Roman our broody former monk turned vampire and Shanna a human dentist was very entertaining. They didn’t have a massive amount of sexual chemistry, in fact if you’re after a really sexy paranormal romance than this isn’t the book to choose, but I did enjoy seeing their developing relationship. However, for me it was some of the side characters that I enjoyed the most, they added a lot of the levity in this book. I plan on continuing to read this series, so I can’t wait for them all to eventually have their own books.

An enjoyable book, great if you want a light hearted paranormal romance and don’t mind a few dated references.

About Kerrelyn Sparks

Apparently, she has issues with reality. After writing 16 books about vampires and shifters, Kerrelyn has now completely gone off the deep end and wound up on another planet.

Although Kerrelyn is best known (so far) for the Love at Stake series, which has hit as high as number 5 on the New York Times list and 22 on the USA Today list, she hopes her readers will love The Embraced as much as they did her merry band of vamps and shifters.

Kerrelyn lives with her family in the Greater Houston area of Texas.

I have had this book on my tbr for many years as well. It may be time to pick it up for some of that ‘nostalgic reading’ you mentioned.

The same nostalgic feeling has been hitting me when I’ve been picking up older books for Romance-opoly. It feels great to get them read, but also fun to go back a bit. This does sound like a fun series, especially with those titles.

The best meet cute ever! I read it maybe 10 years ago, and I’ve been a fan since then.

This is sitting on my phone too. I got the audiobook though. I’m scared to start since the series is so long. Glad to hear you liked it!


Thanks for the review Suzanne
