Emma Wallace is working for the Stake-Out team, part of the CIA. Dedicated to killing the monsters that murdered her parents, Emma believes that all vampires are evil. Meeting Angus MacKay is an eye-opening experience, but the handsome Scotsman has a long way to go in convincing Emma to let go of living her life for revenge. Slaying has been a solitary activity, but now that she has Angus and his men shadowing her every move, Emma might have to reconsider everything she thought she knew about the creatures who stalk the night.

Angus MacKay is the kilt wearing owner of MacKay Security and Investigation. In his many years as a vampire he has worked for some very high profile people such as the Queen, to the most powerful and wealthiest vampire on the East Coast, Roman Dragonesti. When Angus meets Emma, the slayer who has nearly started a war in the vampire community, he sets out to convince her that he’s a trustworthy man with only her safety in mind. Just as Angus thinks he has a chance with Emma, a bitter enemy from his past unveils her own plan for revenge and could destroy every bit of trust he’s worked so hard to earn.

Be Still My Vampire Heart is the third installment in the Love at Stake series, and can also be read as a stand alone book. Angus has his work cut out for him as he takes on Emma, the feisty slayer who quickly fills his thoughts. Ms. Sparks artfully blends revenge, humor and delicious sex appeal as she unleashes her characters in this well imagined world.
