17) Runaway Vampire by Lynsay Sands

The Blurb :

The latest entry in the sizzling paranormal vampire series featuring the Argeneau family - no one does wickedly funny and irresistibly steamy like Lynsay Sands!

Dante Notte has heard it said that love hurts. He just wasn't expecting it to run him over in an RV. Still, a punctured lung and broken ribs are nothing compared to the full-body shock he feels whenever he's near the vehicle's driver, Mary Winslow. He needs to keep her safe from their pursuers while he rescues his brother. Most challenging of all, he needs to claim this smart, stubborn woman as his life mate.

The naked, injured, insanely gorgeous younger man who clambered into her RV insists they belong together. If Mary wasn't feeling their incredible connection in every inch of her being, she wouldn't believe it. But now that the men who took Dante's twin are after her too, trusting her gut means risking her life for an immortal who's the very definition of a perfect stranger.

My Thoughts :

Twenty-three books into the series and I can honestly say that the Argeneau's never get boring!  Anyone who has read at least a couple of books in the series will know that every book is basically the same.  Immortal meets human, human is life-mate, human ends up immortal, etc etc.  However the story every time is different, exciting and wonderful.

Lynsay Sands continues to surprise and amaze me with her fantastic storytelling skills and new situations and characters.  Each Argeneau story is unique in it's own way and tells the story of how one of the immortals I have come to know and love, meets their life-mate and gets their happily ever after.  There is a on-going background story and you always get to see at least a glimpse into the previous immortal subjects but the two main characters are the center figures and always have their own individual stories to tell.

As always the story gets hot and steamy, there is always some adventure, mystery and usually action.  There are funny moments and also sad times but there is always a feel good ending and a wonderful addictive story to follow.  The stories are also realistic, or as realistic they can get if you take away the immortals from Atlantis.  Which in itself is an original and excellent concept that I don't even worry about being told about in each book.

Any fans of the series will love the Runaway Vampire as much as any of the other books in the series.  They will also feel a slight disappointment at the ending, which in my view was too quick and a bit of a cliffhanger.  I was expecting at least one or two more chapters.  However it is also a great sign that there are more books to come and I can't wait to see what happens next.

If you haven't already tried this series then I highly suggest you do.  I can't get enough and plan on reading the whole series again as soon as I can.  Maybe even listen to them via Audible.  I don't think the Argeneau Immortals will ever bore me and I hope they will live forever!
