Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Lynsay Sands delivers a wickedly fun Argeneau novel featuring a vampire ready to claim his mate and the beauty who resists her fate!
A kiss doesn’t mean eternity...
Valerie Moyer doesn’t believe in vampires - until she is kidnapped by a fanged psychopath! After escaping her bloodthirsty captor, she’s through with creatures of the night. Until she finds herself under the protection of the darkly handsome Anders. Not only is she expected to accept that Anders is immortal, but also that she is the woman destined to be his life mate!
...Or does it?
Anders felt a connection to Valerie from the moment he cradled her bruised body in his arms. But before he claims her, he must destroy the vampire who almost stole her from him forever. His job would be easier if Valerie didn’t fight him every step of the way. Still, Anders loves a challenge, and the green-eyed beauty is worth fighting for!

Ahhhhh a Vet & an Enforcer become life mates

Lynsay Sands is known to give us awesome listens - so if you are like me (a big Argeneau fan) and have already listened to books 1-17 then you pretty much know what you're going to get. I stopped the book I was listening to and immediately, excitedly and eagerly started this one (I know I know that's a bit sad but hey!).

This has a brilliant start as Valerie escapes her 10 day capture and torture by a bloodthirsty rogue vampire and meets Anders (in walks talk dark & handsome) on the team that saved her, but she's unaware that he's also the very thing that she's just escaped from. Anders realises he's met his life mate and there's instant attraction, bewilderment, humour, friendships, a few tense moments, an exciting delivery and a happy event together with past familiar characters who either make short appearances or are part of the story which all contribute to filling the hours quite happily.

However, on the negative side and I'm really sorry to say that this listen left me slightly disappointed as it just felt a little bit of a watered down version of her usual action packed sexually charged listens. I wanted a bit more passion, more sexual attraction and interaction and more excitement between the two lovers which seemed a little tame. Also, there didn't seem to be much focus/history/involvement in the story on the villains as to the who/what/why's etc. until the very end.

Worth the credit? Despite my negative comments, this was a very creditworthy vampire tale and a good addition to the Argeneau's family tree. These books could all be a stand alone listen as each mentions the origins of their species however they all contain some references to other family members so, to get the full Argeneau 'family unit' effect, I highly recommend them all.

Another Argeneau Installment...

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I think it could have been more 'fast paced" and definitely had more of a storyline than half the book describing a dog's habits...or is it just me?

If you’ve listened to books by Lynsay Sands before, how does this one compare?

While I love the Argeneau Series and was eagerly anticipating this lastest installment; this one, unfortunately, fell a little short. It definitely wasn't as entertaining as most of the other novels.

What do you think the narrator could have done better?

She definitely could have inflected more emotion in her characters' voices; especially, Anders. His character sounded so monotone.

What would have made this romance irresistible?

Maybe a different Narrator.

Another great Argeneau book!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend to a friend, but would tell them to listen to some of the previous audio books in the series first has these give you a greater understanding of some of the long term characters. However it would still be an enjoyable read on its own.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My favourite character was Valerie. After everything she went through she remained strong and was considerate to others.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The narrator kept a decent pace and really brought the characters to life.

Love It!!

This is my first purchase to this author (if she has any other books that does not relate to ARGENEAU) and her book (audiobook).

So far from all the vampire related story this is the best. After listening to the whole story and the narrator did an amazing job!!!! Praise "Paula Christensen".

I like the story a lot once finish listening to it, I re-listen to it again. The character development was great...I was totally impress with the whole thing (i was in the zone cos the performance was really good), I went back to look over all the books that was available. I ended up purchasing two more books.

I will purchase the whole 20 books right after I have more space on my phone (that's for the author)....
