A few hours ago, Sherry Carne would have sworn that vampires didn’t exist. That’s before rogue immortals rampage through her store, leaving bloody chaos (literally) in their wake. The kicker comes when Sherry learns that one of the vamps on the bad guys’ trail may be her life mate. Her head says it’s impossible. The rest of her takes one look at Basileios Argeneau and has much more interesting ideas.
Whatever Basil expected in a life mate, funny, outspoken Sherry isn’t it. But mind-blowing chemistry and instinct don’t lie. They tell him something else, too—that Sherry’s connection to the immortal world goes deeper than she knows. And that she’s in the kind of danger only Basil can save her from—if she’ll just trust him, now and forever . . .
I have been reading the Argeneau series by Lynsay Sands since almost the first book came out and for the most part, it has continued to be lots of fun. The vampires are all of course really handsome and they are all looking for their life mates - 'cos these guys aren't vamps in the regular sense. Nope, they are really Atlanteans who have been hiding in plain sight for thousands of years.
Unfortunately, I'm beginning to feel that these books are just becoming more of the same. After 21 books there don't seem to be many surprises left. Sherry, to my mind was too accepting of the circumstances she found herself in, and Basil, after millennia on his own, is completely bowled over by a peppy 20 something.
If you enjoy some vampire fun, I'm sure you'll enjoy this one, but for me it certainly didn't stand out from the crowd.
