What can I say!! This is Thomas and Ines' story, and it was LOL funny, had action and intrigue. When Thomas's cousins Etienne and Bastien enlists his help in locating their mother he becomes quite alarmed, after all Aunt Marguerite had raised him and it wasn't like her to go a day without checking in with the family especially with her only daughter due to give birth any day. The trouble starts when Thomas gets to his hotel room in England and finds that the blood bank wouldn't deliver the blood until much later and he needed sustenance now, so he bites Ines and finds out he can't wipe her memory and realizes she is his life mate. What is he going to do now??? The story progresses from there, Inez shows how resourceful she is in finding out things that Thomas is reluctant to discuss with her about Vampires. Inez takes everything in stride and agrees to continue to help Thomas look for his aunt, however it appears that someone has it in for Inez. With trouble brewing, and trying to locate his aunt, keep Inez safe poor Thomas has his hands full. The story was interesting from the beginning, had several LOL moments, and some scary parts too. A good entertaining read. Just that.....ENTERTAINING......not pulitzer worthy.

I don't understand why this book got so many bad reviews, if you've enjoyed the first 7 books in this series, you should enjoy this one as well! Each book can be read as a stand alone story, the author does well to explain enough so the reader wouldn???t be lost if done so, but there is a lot of back story about who???s who and their relationships in the other books. The narrator isn't the best for sure, but neither is he the worst either! My only complaint was how abruptly the story ended, that???s partly due to the writing, but the narrator didn???t modify his speed or cadence in which he was reading and basically ran the last sentence into the end credits!!
This story chronicles Thomas Argeneau finding his life-mate and their search to find the Argeneau???s missing matriarch, Aunt Marguerite, who at the end of book 5 decides to become a P.I. and flies off to Europe on a case (she goes missing at the end of book 6). The story includes the usual ???vampire-(a-la Ms. Sands style) boy-meets-mortal-girl-who-turns-out-to-be-his-life-mate-then-proceed-to-get-it-on??? but also includes a great mystery laced with some pretty intense nail-biting scenes. Thomas and his life-mate Inez (a Portuguese import to Brittan) are lead on a wild goose chase throughout the story, and although we are left (mostly) satisfied with Thomas and Inez???s joining, the story as I mentioned, ends quite suddenly with no resolve to Aunt Marguerite???s situation. It appears the next book in the series is all about Marguerite, but there should have been some wrap up to that effect at the close of this book IMHO, but as I???m thoroughly engrossed in this series, I plan to continue to find out what has happed to her.
