Love at Stake
by Victoria Davies
Abbey is the lone human working for Fated Match, a company that pairs members of the supernatural community with their eternal mates.
To snag a young vampire socialite as their next client, Abbey journeys to the home of Lucian Redgrave, the oldest vampire on the East Coast. But he's not willing to allow his vampire daughter to use the agency... unless Abbey can first find his perfect match in a month.
As Abbey coaches Lucian through his dates, she can’t deny the chemistry between them. But humans are toys for vampires, and risking her heart isn't a part of the plan.
Abbey works at Fated Match a place that sets up all kinds of paranormal beings up with their perfect mate. Business has been slow and when a young vampire wants to sign up it's up to Abbey to convince her sire the company works at finding mates. Lucian agrees to let his young daughter sign up but only if they can find him a mate in a months time. He won't work with any other than Abbey as she intrigues him and she lets it known she won't date vampires. As they work together top set him up they both can't deny they want each other but their percentages don't seem to link to any type of perfect match.
From the start I liked the idea of this book. A dating service for paranormal creatures just sounds so good. Abbey doesn't like vampires or any kind of creature that snacks on humans. She has no plans to fall under Lucian's spell. Her job is at stake in this book as it is up to her to get him a match and help the company bring in new clients. She doesn't usually work personally with the clients but Lucian won't take no for an answer. Lucian doesn't believe this system can work and in some ways is old fashioned. He is up for anything even if he just gives it a few minutes of his time. He wants Abbey and can't stay away from her. I love the chemistry between the two and how even while dating others they can't seem to stay away. I do have to say I didn't like Abbey's boss much as she doesn't care what it takes to get more business. There is plenty of tension between Lucian and Abbey and you get several laughs as well. This book is very entertaining and I look forward to reading more by this author.
