The Blurb -
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!
My Review -
I read this back in October but was asked to post my review at a later date. So here it is! Don't forget to order the book :)
Most series don't last as long as the Argeneau books have. There is somethingvery special about this series and it certainly keeps me coming back for more. Maybe it is the unique paranormal angle that has me hooked? Or itcould be the fun characters that make up the Argeneau family? The romanceand heat certainly make the books attractive but I think the main reason I lovethese books is that I never know what to expect.
Anyonewho has read an Argeneau novel will know that the basic structure of each bookis the same. Guy meets gal, one of them is an immortal, they are life mates and fall in love etc. Sounds boring but Lynsay Sands always manages to make eachnew book even more exciting and interesting. There is always a new set oflead characters with a different location and realistic life story. Nothing exceptthe basics is the same and every new book in the series always impresses me.
Thistime around we finally hear the story of the third Willan sister. I havebeen looking forward to seeing what happened to Alex and it was a pleasurereading her story. As always the majority of the Argeneau clan made anappearance and it was great to catch up with everyone. I feel completelyat home with this series and always manage to read the newest release withinhours. I just can't keep myself from soaking it up in one go.
Sofans will be happy to have another book to add to the collection. Afterall this series is a keeper. Anyone who hasn't yet tried the seriesshould really give it a go if Paranormal Romance appeals to them. Oh and don't get put off by the romance part. Sure there is some lovey dovey stuff and things can get a little hot butthe story itself has much more to offer. Mystery, suspense and a littlehistory all play a part in the larger picture of things in this paranormal favourite of mine.
