This vampire has been alone for far too long . . .
As one of the most ancient in the Argeneau clan, Cale Valens has given up on finding a life mate. His friends and family, however, have not. In fact, they believe they’ve finally found his perfect match. Getting them together, however, requires one little white lie . . .
Alexandra Willan is in a panic. Her restaurant is due to open in two weeks, but her chef just walked out. Then a highly recommended replacement arrives, an impossibly handsome culinary genius who sends electric tingles racing through her body . . .
Except he can’t cook. In fact, Cale hasn’t eaten real food in two thousand years. Yet he’s determined to prove to Alex his prowess in the kitchen . . . and elsewhere. Because never has he hungered so for any mortal woman. And not just for a taste of her, but for the whole delicious feast!
I am a HUGE fan of Lynsay Sands. She is an auto buy for me no matter what the story is about. In the latest installment in the Argeneau series, we are introduced to Cale and Alex.
We have met Alex in previous books. She is the sister to Jo and Sam Willan. While those two have already found their life mates in previous books, I was waiting on pins and needles to see who the author would pair chef and restaurant owner Alex with. While Cale is no Chef, the author made sure to fit Alex with him as a balance. Cale is a business man and hasn’t cooked in over a thousand years if not more. When he finds out that Alex is his life mate though, he does try to cook and woo her at the same time.
Alex hires Cale as her project/business manager since she would rather be head chef at her restaurant then handle the paperwork. Cale is happy to oblige, and Alex finds their growing attraction hard to resist. When they share some sexy dreams, Alex finds her wall of defense crumbling.
I must say that after certain scenes in the book, I will never look at a microwave again without laughing out loud! While I loved the characters of Cale and Alex, my favorite had to be Bricker again for saving the day when Cale found himself messing something up. Bricker trying to teach Cale how to use a microwave and how to cook was hilarious. Ms. Sands never fails with the witty and fun writing that also has the sexy romance we crave. She balances it perfectly and the writing is phenomenal! While the story ended in a bit of a rush, I still was very satisfied with the book. The author also explains things to where if this is the first book you pick up and read, everything is explained without having to read the prior books.
Another fantastic read that quenched my thirst for paranormal romance! Bravo Ms. Sands for another outstanding read in the series.
