He's a vampire from the big city . . .
Phineas McKinney thought New York City was tough, until he was attacked by Malcontents—evil vampires who consider mortals to be snacks. Saved by the good vampires, Phin swore to devote his now undead life to stopping the Malcontents. He's got his job cut out for him when word comes that their enemy may be hiding in Wyoming. What does a city boy like him know about horses and campfires? Good thing he's got Brynley Jones with him . . . if only she didn't hate every vampire on earth.
She's a werewolf princess . . .
Bryn believes vampires are seductive and charming, and that makes them dangerous. So she's more than a little annoyed about teaming up with Phin, even if he is the only bloodsucker able to make her inner wolf purr. But as they hunt down the new leader of the Malcontents, danger threatens . . . and Phineas and Brynley discover a passion that will rock the foundation of their supernatural world.
For those of us who have faithfully read Spark's Love At Stakes series, we are all familiar with the fun-loving, sexy, vampire known as Dr. Phang, AKA the Love Doctor (Phineas McKinney). He has been amusing us throughout the books, since book 3 in the series, Be Still My Vampire Heart.
I have always had a soft spot for Phineas and was excited to find out that he would get his own HEA. Despite his hilarious lines in the books, he always seemed so one-dimensional, lacking any real depth. And I was very curious on how Kerrelyn would write a more compelling character.
Phineas was transformed to a vampire against his will by a Malcontent (think evil vamp). Prior to his transformation, he sold drugs to help support his family and ailing mother. It was during one of these drug sales that he was attacked and his life forever changed.
Now, Phineas works for MacKay S & I in NYC and finds himself the spokes vamp for Blardonny--a wine mixed with blood for the vampire community. The ads themselves are hilarious--similar to the Old Spice commercials featuring Isaiah Mustafa.
