Immortally Yours (Argeneau #26) by Lynsay Sands review
Immortally Yours - Lynsay Sands Immortally Yours - Lynsay Sands

 

 

Irresistible chemistry and thrilling suspense combine in this electrifying new installment in New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands’ Argeneau series

One hundred and twenty-five years is a long time to nurse a crush. That’s how long it’s been since Beth Argenis first met Cullen “Scotty” MacDonald and he instantly became the star of her most X-rated dreams. Back then, he was rescuing her from a Rogue Immortal. Now Beth’s a Rogue Hunter—a damn good one. She doesn’t need saving anymore, despite what Scotty thinks. What she does need is the fierce, wild desire that finally erupts between them.

Scotty has hesitated to claim Beth as his own. But one explosive kiss confirms what he’s long suspected: She’s his life mate. But Beth is tough, fearless, beautiful…and in immortal danger. Unless he wants to lose her forever, he’ll have to rethink everything he once believed about love and destiny as well as confront an enemy who’s terrifyingly close.

 

 

 

First, let me start off saying that once again Lynsay Sands has made her vampire world the setting for my dreams. It’s no secret that I love the paranormal but vampires were my first love, so each and every time an author inspires a new take on vampire lore, it gives me chills and sets my imagination on fire. The Argeneau Vampire world is certainly a fascinating take on vampires, with plenty of sexy vampires to dream about and the meeting of their lifemates are adventures that have to be explored. Immortally Yours not only lives up to the previous books but was also a bit surprising.

 

The courtship between Scotty and Beth not only had an unexpected plot but it also had plenty of danger from an unforeseen foe. The romance tugged at heartstrings, made me cuss at the hero for being a bit pretentious while loving him at the same time and of course made me a bit jealous that Beth got the Scottish hottie instead of me. The action and danger were in just the right amount with plenty of thrills without overwhelming the romance and the book threw me for a bit of a loop, since the author steered us away from the chase involving the evil doctor and back to Canada, but I have to say that that’s gives readers a chance to see how other characters are faring during this trying time and dealing with problems that rise because of that chase, which may keep me on pins and needles about what is happening with the chase, but also means that I definitely won’t get bored and always have more stories in this world to look forward to.

 

 So I have to say that I had a very good time reading Immortally Yours and if you love this vampire world I much as I do, you will be happy to know that more appealing characters have been introduced.

 

5 STARS

Vampires are Forever (Argeneau #8) by Lynsay Sands
Argeneau Novels: Accidental Vampire/Vamp... Argeneau Novels: Accidental Vampire/Vampires are Forever/Rogue Hunter/Immortal Hunter/Renegade Hunter/Born to Bite - Lynsay Sands,.

The Argeneau family matriarch Marguerite has gone missing.  Thomas has always been considered the irresponsible one in the family but when all of Marguerite's children find themselves entangled in commitments that are difficult to separate themselves from, it becomes Thomas's job to fly to London and locate his missing aunt. To help on this task, Bastien assigns the vice president of U.K productions for Ageneau industries, Inez Urso to help.  The search will take the two on a dangerous small European romp, with Thomas realising that somehow in the midst of all of the family drama going on that not only has he met his life mate but he has to find a way to woo her while keeping her safe from danger.

As with all of the Argeneau series, Vampires Are Forever, is essentially a paranormal romance with mystery thrown in as sort of an aside. The mystery gives the characters something to do while supposedly falling in love lust (supposedly because people don't fall in love in a week without the woo woo Sands uses).  Thankfully, because the missing character is Marguerite, it means that her children make an appearance in the story giving the readers a chance  to see a little bit of what has been going on with them.  Though each Argeneau novel is essentially a one off, the family connection helps to tie the books together.  

In this book, Inez is the female love interest and other than the fact that she speaks Portuguese when she is angry or horny, we don't get much of a cultural sense from her.  I really found this annoying because despite the fact that this series moved from the United States and Canada to Europe, it still reads like a one note cultural mishmash.  It's now book number eight and we have yet to meet any people of colour.  Inez being Portuguese with dark curly hair, is as close as we have gotten so far.  Where are all of the people of colour in this series?


Inez spends most of her time being fixated on the fact that she is twenty pounds over weight, is too curvy and has breasts that are too large. Does that remind anyone else of Merry Gentry?  It's just a ridiculous trope to have a female protagonist who is described as conventionally beautiful in every scene, then  have her whine about her large breasts and being too curvy.  Every time it happened, I found myself rolling my eyes.  Furthermore, if Inez had managed to work her way up to a vice president position, why exactly is she so socially inept?  Why does she have absolutely zero confidence in herself?  Why does she need Thomas to repeatedly tell her how smart, and sexy she is?  Calling Lynsay Sands, can we get a protagonist with a spine and a personality please?

Dead Sexy: Best Vampire Romances on the Lighter Side
A Love Worth Biting For - Roxy Mews
The Warlord Wants Forever (Immortals After Dark #1) - Kresley Cole
A Quick Bite - Lynsay Sands
One Bite With A Stranger (The Others, Book 1) - Christine Warren
Driving Mr. Dead - Molly Harper

Undead and Unwed - MaryJanice Davidson
A Girl's Guide to Vampires - Katie MacAlister

I have been reading Vampire Romance long enough to have been irrated when Twilight made a big splash because while it has its pleasures it is far from the best of its genre.

 

I think of Twilight is like the Carl's Jr of Vampire Romances--it is not Trueburger,  or Hodad's, or 5 Guys but its good and edible enough. And truth to tell I have eaten at Carl's far more times than at these other yummy places. Common can be very good.

 

And best of all Twilight made Vampire Romance and Paranormal Romance in general very profitable and thus many great writers got a chance to shine. A rising tide lifts all boats. 

 

Here are some of my favorite Vampire Romances that take a lighter, funnier view of the Dark Ones.  In no particular order...

 

1. A Love Worth Biting For (Hart Clan Hybrids) by Roxy Mews

2. Secrets: Volumes 3 and 4 Angela Knight's "Blood and Kisses" 

3. The Warlord Wants Forever (Immortals After Dark) by Cole, Kresley

4. A Quick Bite (Argeneau Vampires, Book 1) by Sands, Lynsay

5. One Bite With A Stranger (The Others, Book 1) by Warren, Christine

6. Driving Mr. Dead by Molly Harper

7. Bad Mouth (Entangled Covet) by Angela McCallister

8. Take it Like a Vamp (Entangled Covet) by Candace Havens 

9. Hybrid Misfit by Eve Langlais 

10. Undead and Unwed (Queen Betsy, Book 1) by Davidson, MaryJanice 

11. A Girl's Guide to Vampires (Dark Ones) by MacAlister, Katie
