One late night leads to . . .
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 . . .
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.

I really think Lynsay Sands is getting back in the swing of things with her latest, The Lady is Vamp.  I'll be honest and admit the last few didn't spark my interest like the first few in the series and I was starting to get a little worried.  Well, let me tell you Ms. Sands brought it back and in a big way.  The characters were highly enjoyable and the story line brought a sense of 'reality' to the fantasy land of vampires.

What wouldn't we do to ensure the survival of our children?

Paul Jones is in that exact dilemma.  While working at Argeneau Enterprises he's introduce to the world of the immortal.  They don't get sick and live forever.  When he first finds out it's nothing more than scientific curiosity that gets sparked but when his daughter is diagnosed with a life-threatening brain tumor he knows what he has to do.  Even if that means forcing someone to change his daugher.

Jeanne Louise doesn't know what to expect when she wakes chained to a bed, but it sure wasn't being greeted by a man that she can't read.  And those of you familiar with the Argeneau clan know what that means.  YEP! It's life mate-time.  But Jeanne Louise has more than just being kidnapped to deal with.  Paul is a widower which leaves her in the challenging position of competed against a ghost in the love department, not to mention that pesky rule about only being allowed to turn one human in her lifetime.  Knowing Paul will never agree to give up his daughter, Jeanne Louise has to come up with a solution and FAST.  The enforcers know that she's been kidnapped and they aren't taking too nicely to the fact that a mortal has taken one of their own.
Make man fall in love
Save daughter
Outrun enforcers
Sounds easy enough...............right?

I greatly enjoyed The Lady is a Vamp.  I know a lot of hardcore romance readers are put-off by children in books, but I found Livy's character adorable and endearing.  Jeanne Louise has spent the last 100 years without a 'real' family so I think an insta-famly of Livy and Paul make her happily ever after that much better :)  If you're looking to indulgence yourself with some sweet and sexy check it out.

*Even if you haven't read the previous installments in the Argeneau series I feel that you can still enjoy The Lady is Vamp.  There are appearances of characters and family members from previous books, but nothing so involved that you'll find yourself lost.

  1. I love this series. I'm about 3 books behind and I really need to start reading this series again. Thanks for the review.

  2. While each of her books in this series have a unique story, I like that she is getting back to the old setups, while I loved the Rogue Hunter books, it was always the light and funny clueless vampires that made me laugh. This one is good and has a good story to go with it (and a very clever conclusion)

  3. You know, the Rogue Hunter ones were my least favorite in the series. LOL. Although, my tastes always lead toward the lighter, goofier type of books :) I do serious every once in a while but I LOVE getting a good laugh with my romance.

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
