For Basha Argeneau, anything is better than facing her estranged family. Even hidingReview-
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 . .
This was a strange addition to the Argeneau roundup. Where the last in the series (One Lucky Vampire) was super sweet Vampire Most Wanted was a bit dark. It started off normal enough, with the exception of a new and exciting backdrop of a carnival, but towards the end of the book you get a glimpse at some very dark material.
If you've followed the series you've caught a brief glimpse of Basha in a previous installment. She is thought to be a foe, but Vampire Most Wanted brings her story to light. Honestly? It's pretty sad. She had some terrible years and has spend the subsequent ones on the run from her Uncle. I'm not talking just a few; We're talking about decades and decades here. Don't get me wrong, she's not a woe-is-me character, but the end of the book will definitely make your jaw drop! I know mine did.
Marcus is a good guy. He seems to be just the kind of guy that Basha needs to move forward. Of course it takes her a while to realize that ;)
So, this 20th installment of the Argeneau series brought some pretty crazy stuff to the table. I really enjoyed it! If you've followed the series I think you'll like it. If you haven't then you can read this one as a stand a lone and be just as happy as a long time reader. I don't feel like there was too much back story needed to get into it. Do be forewarned; if you're prone to emotional triggers when reading a book with flashbacks of child abuse I would say skip it.
