Vampire Most Wanted
How Lynsay Sands manages to keep her Argeneau vampire series enjoyable and interesting after this long is amazing, but in Vampire Most Wanted we have another amusing, sexy, enjoyable paranormal romance set in her world of the Argeneau vampires.
Basha Argeneau is the niece of family head Lucian Argeneau. Until recently she had been presumed dead. But now new information has suggested she’s alive, and Lucian wants to find his long lost niece, even while he fears she’s gone rouge.
Marcus Notte is at a loose end and lacking a mission in life, so he’s happy, eager even, to take on Lucians task of finding the mysterious Basha. His job would be a little easier if she’d gone missing since the invention of photographs, or if anyone had thought to paint her picture. No matter, he’s pretty certain the attractive, gypsy fortune teller is his woman. In more ways than one.
Rather than creating story arc’s that never end to keep her world alive Lynsay Sands has created a world with endless vampire families that need to be matched up, and keeps her series arc’s to only 2 or 3 stories before they’re resolved and a new one starts. This means it’s quite easy to pick up any of the books in the series and thoroughly enjoy them out of order, yet not miss any major plot points.
Vampire Most Wanted follows in this vane. It’s really the conclusion to the previous few books, with how Marcus became to be at a lose end, and in need of someone to look after. It also ties in some much, much, earlier history that we get to see resolved.
That is one of the things that I adore about Ms Sands stories, there’s always just one more hidden layer that can suddenly be revealed. I’d hate to see what her white board of plot points looks like, after 20 books in this series alone it must be looking like the London A-Z.
In Vampire Most Wanted we have some nice light mystery, a few twists, some darker moments in vampire history revealed, and, of course, sexy sex and true love. All delivered with Lynsay Sands, now signature, humorous quips. Lynsay Sands’ gets humour. She doesn’t get too cheesy with it, nor is it so subtle one needs a laugh-track to know that a joke was told.
It’s a light, clean romance, with enjoyable well developed characters, interesting plot, and just full of warm fuzzies and hot sexiness.
If you’ve enjoyed the Argeneau series so far, then you’ll thoroughly enjoy Vampire Most Wanted. If you’ve never tried the series, then you are seriously missing out. Go straight to your nearest book story and start today.
Take a road trip with the undead . . . in this latest in the argeneau series by New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands
For Basha Argeneau, anything is better than facing her estranged family. Even hiding out in sweltering southern California. But when a sexy immortal in black shows up determined to bring her back to the clan, she’ll do anything to keep far, far away from the past she can’t outrun.
Marcus Notte isn’t here to play games – especially not with someone as crazy as the infamous blonde. Asked by Lucian Argeneau to bring her back for questioning, Marcus is determined to carry out Lucian’s request; no matter how the seductive little mind-reading vamp feels about it.
Basha doesn’t mind fighting fire with fire, especially with a hot immortal involved. But if he wants to take her away, he’ll have to catch her first . . .
