"finally we get Victor's tale!"

Elvi went on a fun-in-the-sun vacation to Mexico. Instead of drinks with funny umbrellas, she found herself being the main drink for a vampire! What a drag, especially when maker did a drink 'n run, leaving poor Elvi struggling to deal with her new vamp state. For five years Elvi has toddled through her new situation, dealing with the downside of being undead. There are a few perks, such as not aging, but still, being a vamp should come with a "how to be a vamp and survive" book, she thinks.

Victor Argeneau (finally we get Victor's tale!) has lived alone for centuries, having lost his beloved to vampire hunters. Since then, his sole focus has been hunting down rogue vampires to eliminate them, so no other innocent vamps are slaughtered for their misdeeds. His attention is drawn to Elvi when her friends place a want ad for a male vamp, matchmaking the objective. Victor isn't sure it's a real vamp or someone just playing a joke, so he goes to check it out. He is shocked to learn the whole town is aware that Elvi is a vampire, but more importantly, Elvi is real and just what his heart craves. However the vampire council dedicated to keeping a low profile for the good vamps, sees this situation as something that cannot go on.

Lynsay Sands takes a chance giving us not young and beautiful vamps, but older ones, and the risk is endearing, once again keeping this series fresh and original. The problem with any series, is to conjure that vital spark that made it special to begin with. Each time, Sands does just that.

Fans will be very happy campers as another Angeneau tale comes in January and February, giving you three in a row.

Who knew being undead could make life so much more fun?


Ever since an accident turned her into a knockout vamp, Elvi Black’s been catching her z’s in a coffin, staying out of the sun, and giving up garlic. She knows there’s more to being undead than what she saw in Dracula, but she can’t very well ask her mortal friends about proper biting etiquette. But when her neighbors placed a personal ad for her in the local paper, she never imagined she’d meet Victor Argeneau, a vampire who could have his pick of any woman—dead or alive.


Rich, powerful, and drop-dead gorgeous, Victor’s the perfect man for a novice neck-biter like Elvi. He’s willing to teach her everything he knows, but he’ll have to do it fast. Someone’s out to put a stake through her new vamp life, and only Victor can keep her safe – and satisfied – for all eternity.
