Bite Me If You Can Argeneau Family 06by Lynsay Sands
Synopses & Reviews
Once Bitten . . .
One minute Leigh is walking home in the early hours of the morning, and the next a vampire is sinking his teeth into her neck. Turns out it was a rogue vampire marked for termination, but it does Leigh little good because the damage's already been done. She's become one of them.
Lucian Argeneau, hunter of rogue vampires, has been alive for over two thousand years, and there's very little to excite him anymore. Food has become tasteless, sex is ordinary. Then Leigh drops into his life. Suddenly he finds himself craving coffee . . . and imagining the sassy brunette atop the black satin sheets on his nice big bed. It's Lucian's job now to enlighten Leigh on the inner workings of being immortal . . . and tutoring her is igniting a fire in him that hasn't burned in centuries.
But until they stop a renegade bloodsucker from destroying the human race, passion will have to wait!
"Sands's delightful sixth visit with the Argeneaus (following A Bite to Remember), a clan of vampires living across present-day North America, features bitter, world-weary Lucian, a bloodsucker preoccupied with hunting down rogue vamps to protect the family — and to hide centuries-old grief for his dead wife and children. The depressed vampire finds a new lease on immortality when he becomes involved with Leigh Gerard, an independent woman fleeing an abusive relationship and looking to make a fresh start in Kansas City. After Leigh is attacked and turned by a wayward vampire named Morgan, Lucian becomes her unwilling tutor in the vampiric lifestyle. When he realizes he's falling in love with her, he has to figure out how to become the kind of man she could fall in love with as well — the kind of man he used to be. Though Sands doesn't have much of an antagonist in Morgan, her trademark humor and genuine characters easily carry the romance, and she's able to work in some creative twists on the standard vampire legend, keeping her series fresh and her readers hooked." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)
Lucian Argeneau may be a vampire, but he's also a bit of a grump. Hundreds of years spent hunting rogue immortals will do that to a man. The last thing he expects is to find a reluctant vampire who's having a bit of a tough time adjusting to her new life. Lucian hasn't had to interact with a woman this closely for thousands of years, and he had no intention of starting now. But the best laid plans...
Leigh has been through a lot, but nothing quite prepared her for the situation she finds herself in. Thrust into the world of immortals and forced to absorb an astonishing amount of information, Leigh thinks that her tutor might exhibit a little more patience and a little less attitude. Of course, that doesn't stop her from finding him far too attractive for her own good. But Leigh, Lucian, and their new relationship will be put to the test when a very real threat enters their lives...
