One late night leads to . . .
Kidnapped! When Jeanne Louise Argeneau left work, she never thought she'd end up tied down by a good-looking mortal. More attracted than annoyed, she quickly realizes there is more to her abductor than meets the eye.
One desperate act leads to . . .
Love? Paul Jones has need of a vampire, and only Jeanne Louise will do. He just has to convince this beauty of a Vamp to help him . . . never imagining that he would fall in love. But with the immortal world's answer to law enforcement hunting them, their time together is running out . . . and Paul and Jeanne Louise will need to risk everything to spend an eternity together.
The seventeenth entry in the Argeneau series is a delightful and romantic tale.
Jeanne Louise Argeneau is a 102 year old immortal. She’s entering the phase in life where food starts to lose its taste and sex becomes something less than what it has been before. Her life is turned upside down when she is kidnapped by Paul Jones and finds herself instantly attracted to him.
Paul Jones wants nothing more than to save his daughter’s life. Livy has been diagnosed with brain cancer and has only a little bit longer to live. Through his work at Argeneau Industries in R & D, Paul has been let in on some of the immortal’s secrets. He knows the only way to save Livy is to have her turned immortal and Jeanne Louise is the woman he picks to help him.
I loved this couple. Jeanne Louise isn’t terribly upset when kidnapped once she figures out what Paul really wants. She is understanding and moved by the lengths Paul is willing to go to save his daughter. They are attracted to each other and find that there is more happening between them than either one suspected.
There is a high level of emotion in the story. Paul’s feelings for his daughter and about the loss of his wife several years prior to the story make him a very sympathetic and endearing character. Jeanne Louise’s affection for Livy makes her a likable character too.
There isn’t any huge mystery or action to the story, but the story doesn’t drag or feel slow. It’s the romance between Paul and Jeanne Louise and the making of their family with Livy that is the heart of the story. The reader gets to see many familiar Argeneau faces and learn more about a few of the characters from previous books.
The writing is what one expects from a Lynsay Sand’s novel. I like that although this series is long, it doesn’t feel stale or repetitive. Also, each book can stand on its own and the reader would understand about the family and world.
