Tall, Dark & Hungry (Argeneau Novel) by Lynsay Sands (@Lynsay_Sands @avonbooks)

I really enjoyed reading Bastien and Terri’s story again. Bastien Argeneau is the go-to guy for the family. Whenever there is a problem or something needs to be taken care of, he is the one that gets called. It has been that way since his father died. He has been extra busy since his brother, Lucern, found his life mate and started planning his wedding. Terri is the bride, Kate’s, best friend and cousin and she is flying in from England two weeks early to surprise her and help with the wedding.

Staying in New York is not cheap so her cousin arranges for her to stay at Bastien’s penthouse apartment. No sooner does she arrive, then Kate has to leave to fly out to a writer’s conference due to an unfortunate incident with a toliet. Throw in a vampire playing Dracula, a curse on wedding plans and a vindictive bee and the laughs just don’t stop.

Terri has hangs up on relationships and it was lovely to watch her fall so hard for Bastien. Take the time to meet the Argeneau family. I am sure you will love them as much as I do!

The Immortal Hunter by LynsaySands (@Lynsay_Sands)

Oh my goodness! I can’t even begin to tell you guys how much I love the Argeneau family and Lynsay’s series involving them.

The Immortal Hunter is the story of Decker Argeneau. All the man wants is a simple vacation and that is thrown out the door when he is asked to assist in catching a rogue vampire. Since that is his job as a Council Enforcer he is willing to assist. What starts off as a simple capture of a rogue turns into much more when the enforcers realize that a family member that turned rogue fifty years earlier is in the area. Attempting to catch Nicholas Argeneau becomes their new target. Nicholas has been watching a nest of rogue vampires and enlists Decker and Justin in his quest to free the two young women they have taken captive.

Dr. Dani McGill has no idea what is with the crazy men that have kidnapped her or her baby sister, Stephanie. She just knows that she has to keep them alive. When gunfire erupts and her sister is forced away by one of the kidnappers, Dani is convinced things have gone from bad to worse. How do you trust a man you know is lying to you even if he takes a bullet for you?

Finding a lifemate when you least expect it is a blessing and it is one that this Argeneau man is going to fight for even if he has to fight the one he loves.

Rated 4.5 stars

The Accidental Vampire (An Argeneau Novel) by Lynsay Sands (@LynsaySands, @avonbooks)

Welcome to the world of Port Henry! I am a huge Lynsay Sands fan and am seriously addicted to the Argeneau family. Elvi Black is the quentiessential newbie vamp. Having no idea how she was turned into a vampire on a vacation to Mexico with her best friend, Mabel, she has been trying to make the best out of a bad situation. Having watched the movie, Dracula, and becoming vampire experts, they are convinced they have Elvi’s new life figured out. They made arrangements for a coffin, Elvi sleeps during the day and takes the rules of the movie seriously. Fast forward five years and the entire town is working hard to help Elvi. Everyone donates to the local blood bank and they do everything they can for her. In return, Elvi attends all the town functions, bake sales and “performs” as the local town vampire at her restaurant, Bella Black’s.

Mabel and Teddy, the town sheriff, have taken it upon themselves to place a personal ad in the Toronto singles columns to find a mate for Elvi. They don’t want her to spend eternity alone. According to the laws of vampires, this is a big no-no and they send in Victor Argeneau, a vampire enforcer, to take stock of the rogue(Elvi) and report to the council.

Chaos ensues when several vampires that Victor knows shows up in response to the ad and it becomes obvious that someone is out to end Elvi’s immortal life. Between discovering his lifemate and trying to save her from the trouble she keeps running into, Victor has his hands full! I really enjoy the cast of characters in Port Henry and their obvious love and respect for Elvi.

My Twisted Drink: A Vampire Romance by JoAnn Mayer

I am a vampire junkie and will read just about anything I can get my hands on. I was not sure how this story was going to go but I was blown away! It is a new spin on the story and I love that! Alexander is a love him, hate him character that you can’t help but fall in love with! Charlotte frustrated me at times but when you understand her backstory, you realize she is a powerful woman. Take a chance and fall in love with a vampire story that is true to the heart of the characters.

A Night at Tears of Crimson (Tears of Crimson Vampire Nightclub) by Michelle Hughes

This has to be one of the sexiest paranormal reads that I have found. When I first purchased this book I was unfamiliar with the work of Ms. Hughes but I decided to take a chance because lets face it, sex and vampires are pure seduction. I love the setting of a bar in New Orleans. I am from the south and those hidden little bars have some of the most fascinating stories to tell. Her characters, Rafe and Cara, are real. They feel a connection that doesn’t happen everyday and seeing that passion develop is like watching a flower unfold.

New Year’s Kiss (Wolf’s Heritage, Book One) by Tielle St. Clare

Wow. It is the first word that comes to mind after reading this book. Mikhel is a werewolf who has gotten to the point where he has to leave his home. It is not possible to have two Alphas around and things are tense with is father. He doesn’t want to start his own pack so he and his best friend Zach head out to the city. A few years pass and they are running their own businesses and have befriended a young lady named Taylor. When Taylor gets dumped (by text) right before New Years Eve, Mikhel sees the chance to make his move. He is a little surprised that Zach wants to make a move too. They can’t decide which one will take her out on New Years Eve and Mikhel doesn’t want to pull Alpha rank so they both escort her to a party. They take turns spending time with her and she ends up kissing Zach and getting “friendly” with Mikhel. They end up taking her upstairs in the hotel and offering her a choice between them. Smart girl that she is, she chooses both. When a werewolf has unprotected sex with a female, it can cause her to take on traits of the wolf. This allowed Taylor to be able to have sex dozens of times with both men without wearing out. Mikhel’s possessive traits come out in full force and he finds himself wanting to turn Alpha on Zach and dominate both Zach and Taylor. Mikhel ends up leaving to calm himself the next day and heads out to the woods so his were can run free. Zach feels like Mikhel needs to assert his right as Alpha and establish the pack, so he brings Taylor out the house they own near the woods. When Mikhel comes backa and realizes that Zach is pleasuring Taylor, he goes crazy and attacks him. This allows Zach’s werewolf to submit to Mikhel. They end up deciding that the two of them will share Taylor and she is fine with that. A year later, Zach has decided that he wants Mikhel to make love to him and Taylor is onboard with that. Mikhel is thrown for a loop cause he has never thought of having sex with a man before. So, on New Years Eve they decide to see how it goes.

This book is full of descriptive sex scences and has M/M/F situations. Not for the faint of heart!

Lucas (Vampires in America) by D.B. Reynolds

All I can say is D.B. Reynolds knows how to write a vampire book. This is the sixth book in the Vampires in America series and I am amazed at how engrossing they are. I have read all of them and they keep getting better and better.

Lord Lucas Donlon is the vampire Lord for the midwest territory. He is not especially thrilled to have to meet with a FBI official and does so just to keep off the grid. He was not expecting the beautiful, tall and elegant Kathryn Hunter to walk in. Kathryn is looking for her missing brother, Daniel, who is a world famous photographer. He has been missing for several weeks and has made no contact with her. He was last seen leaving a blood house in Lucas’s area so she sets up a meeting with him. Sparks fly which sets both of these dominant characters on their toes. Violence and war between two vampire lords rocks the pages of this book, taking us all over the midwest. In between a love develops that puts our characters to the test. The search for her brother leads to a few hidden truths in Kathryn’s world and opens her up to a vulnerability she had never felt before.

I advise everyone who enjoys paranormal romance to take a look at D.B Reynolds Vampires in America series. You will not be disappointed.

Wolfishly Yours by Lydia Dare

This was an ARC book that I received for review. What an amazing book. I was familiar with the Hadley family through previous Lydia Dare books. Livi is a wild hoyden from New Orleans by her father to be turned into a proper English lady by her grandfather who is an Earl. Grayson Hadley of the wild and roguish Hadley brothers is a Lycan with a penchant for trouble. When he sees Livi for the first time he is stunned by her beauty and when she tells him she is from a Lycan family he is floored.

I really do like this book and since I had already read some books by this author I was familiar with the Lycan families. I do think that the book should have included some Lycan history and information for those who are reading a Lydia Dare book for the first time.

I was intrigued by how many supporting characters were in this book and how many could get their own story.

Livi and Grayson share a passion that melts the pages. It’s nice to see a book that focuses on the characters and their interactions with each other. I give it 4 stars and recommend it for all romance and paranormal lovers.

Devil’s Details by Regan Taylor

I was given this book by the author to review and I must say that I enjoyed it. The story begins with Courtney a newly contracted author who meets the devilishly delicious Luke Devlin. Luke is new to town and Courtney befriends him. Passion develops quickly between the two with a touch of sulfur thrown in. What Courtney doesn’t know is that Luke is actually Lucifer and the fun is just beginning! The concept of Luke’s story is a unique one and I would love to read more about these two characters!

The Lady is a Vamp by Lynsay Sands (@LynsaySands, @avonbooks)

I have yet to find a book that I didn’t like by Lynsay Sands and The Lady is a Vamp did not disappoint. I have been looking forward to Jeanne Louise’s story for awhile now and I was unsure of how it would play out with Paul. I have to admit I fell in love with Livy. With a recent cancer diagnosis in my own family, this hit hard and left me amazed by the strength in this little girl. All of the Argeneau stories are amazingly well written, but this one carried a depth to it that really touched me. I laughed over the antics of the characters and I cried over the heartfelt agony that Bricker, Jeanne Louise, and Paul were all feeling. It is a wonderful story that stands true to the heart of the incredible vampire story that Lynsay has created.
