Vampires Are Forever (Argeneau Vampires, Book 8) by Lynsay Sands

From Back of Book:

Vampires Don’t Exist…Do They?

Inez Urso is beginning to have her doubts. Her business associate Thomas Argeneau has some interesting traits, like an allergic reaction to the sun, excellent night vision, and not mush of an appetite for food. And to top it all off, he just tried to bite her neck…happy to experience more, despite her determination not to mix business with pleasure.

He’s Been Waiting Forever For A Woman Like Her…

Well, if not forever, at least two hundred years. Inez is the most beautiful woman he’s seen in centuries. Those luscious lips, seductive curves, and her elegant neck…he just couldn’t resist the temptation of one little bite. Now Thomas will do anything to convince her that only an immortal like him can satisfy her all night long…

This is the 8th book in the Argeneau series. This is probably my least favorite book of the series. Thomas was in several of the other books as a secondary character and I loved him. I was excited to see how he would find his lifemate and to find out what he really was like. While these things were explained the book didn’t go too in depth with Thomas’ life. I felt that the author didn’t give Thomas a chance to expand from a secondary character (even though he is the main focus of this book). Inez is also a pretty flat character. Her past isn’t really discussed and her immediate acceptance of what Thomas is was unrealistic. The book is more about finding Marguerite. Also, it seemed that the book was mainly a bunch of running around from country to country. The story just didn’t seem to go anywhere. I hope that book nine, Vampire, Interrupted, is much better.

The Accidental Vampire (An Argeneau Novel)

The Accidental Vampire (Argeneau Vampires, Book 7) by Lynsay Sands

Victor Argeneau has been around for a long while, over 2000 years. He is rich, powerful, and very good-looking!

Elvi has been a vampire for 5 years, but no one told her the “rules” of being a vampire. She thinks she has to sleep in a coffin, only consume blood, and never go outside.

After Elvi’s friends place a personal ad in the local paper in search of a male vampire Victor goes to Elvi’s home town to see if she is for real. But someone else is interested in Elvi too, interested enough to try an kill her.

This was a great addition to the Argeneau series. Victor is very steady and calm. The perfect man to help Elvi see the way her life as a vampire can be. The chemistry between Victor and Elvi is great, but I had trouble connecting to Elvi. She “speaks” with the voice of an older woman. It made her character extremely interesting, since it poses the question of what would you do if you were a 62 year old in a 25 year old’s body? This book was no where near as funny as Single White Vampire, but still had the Lynsay Sands humor that has been evident in all of the books.
