The Lady Is A Vamp by Lynsay Sands is the 17th book in the Argeneau Vampire series. I have been a fan of author Lynsay Sands for a long time now. I have loved her books, gushed about the books, and even interviewed the author and characters on the blog. When the newest book in the series arrived in my mailbox, I mowed everyone down that stood in my way to the reading chair and settled in for a few hours to devour the story.
Paul Jones is on a mission to save his daughter. She is dying of a brain tumor that is inoperable, and he is needing someone of the Immortal variety to save her. After working for Argeneau Enterprise for quite some time, he already knows about the secrecy and danger of what could happen. After he finds himself drawn to the exotic Jeanne Louise, he decides that he needs to kidnap her and convince her to turn his daughter to save her. He plans it out and makes his daring kidnapping using a tranquilizer that he has been working on for the Enforcer Group. After kidnapping Jeanne Louise, he brings her to his house and chains her up in his office.
Jeanne Louise wakes to discover that she is having a hard time reading Paul. She blames it on the tranquilizer and tries to figure out why she has been kidnapped. While Paul doesn’t treat her like a prisoner, she still realizes that she could still be in danger from him. When Jeanne Louise finally figures out that she can’t read Paul because he is her lifemate, she tries to figure out a way to make him fall for her and accept her as a wife instead of a tool to use for his daughters salvation. She grows to love Pauls daughter as her own and wants to save her, but she can only turn one person in a lifetime. She wants that person to be her lifemate as well.
Oh Ms.Sands loves to pull at the heartstrings. I was already sniffling by chapter two and by chapter four I had tears in my eyes. Paul’s daughter is so sweet and innocent and you can’t help but wonder how this story is going to end. As the two become closer and realize there is chemistry between them, the decision of who to turn is decided by an unlikely person. This is where I was ready to blow up at the author because she brings in Bricker and he is one of my favorite characters. Seriously, I have begged the author to include me as Bricker’s lifemate when his story comes around, but I think she has me blocked now from all of the begging. Anyway, Bricker feels horrible about the turn of events, and Lucien is forced to make some hard decisions for everyone involved.
What I loved the most about this installment though was how the author brought the story back to its roots from the beginning. Previous characters were involved in the story, the tender romance with witty humor was present, and the story flowed beautifully. I felt like this story was one of the best books in this series since the earlier ones. I really enjoyed it and it brought back that reading addiction that Ms. Sands can create with just one story. I really want to go back and start reading the whole series now just to keep my Argeneau fix going!
Another great book to add to your collection and one that will pull at your heart with emotions of love, sadness, and happily ever afters.
