Handsome Howard . . .
Hunky Howard . . .
Hot Howard . . .
It's not every day that Elsa Bjornberg feels delicate, not when she hosts a home renovation show where she can effortlessly demolish a kitchen. But from the moment she meets Howard Barr, this bear of a man makes her feel like a woman. And the way he looks at her, as if she were a pot of honey he'd like to lick . . .
Howard is not like most men. For one thing, he's a shapeshifter. And he always thought his celebrity crush would never amount to anything more than drooling at Elsa on TV. When his meddling vampire employer gets involved, the star is suddenly within his grasp—and within a hair of her life. For an ancient curse forbids their newfound love, and Howard is suddenly torn between his desire for her and his desire to keep her alive.
"In Sparks's 13th entry (after Wanted: Undead or Alive) in her lighthearted Love at Stake series, recurring character Howard Barr, a security specialist/were-bear, gets a romance of his own with carpenter/reality television star Elsa Bjornberg. The two feel an immediate animal attraction after meeting via the matchmaking Shanna Draganesti, only to discover an ancient spell standing between them. Elsa has inherited supernatural powers from her ancestors, but also a curse that could compel a were-bear like Howard to attack her at any time. She's reluctant, however, to believe that Howard would ever hurt her. Meanwhile, he pursues a vendetta against another breed of shape-shifter, a werewolf. Fans should enjoy the host of supporting players, both those for comic relief and to connect to previous stories, but may find that little room is left for the sweet central romance to develop. Agent: Michelle Grajkowski, 3 Seas Literary Agency." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
This wonderful addition to the Love at Stake series focuses on the hero shapeshifter, his family and history, with the vampires taking a backseat. Sparks offers up a fantastic, entertaining story with plenty of old faces and some quite intriguing new ones, all with their own unique powers. RT Book Reviews
