Under a Vampire Moon
by Lynsay Sands
Escaping a horrible marriage, Carolyn Connor has no desire to think about men—a vow she’s determined to keep while on vacation in St. Lucia. She’ll take the Caribbean sun and sea and plenty of tropical drinks with those cute umbrellas poolside, thank you. She absolutely does not need male company, no matter how tan and rock-hard his body may be.
Easy enough, but then Carolyn meets the charming Marguerite Argeneau, who is infamous among her family for her matchmaking prowess . . .
Christian Notte has well known the power of finding a life mate. He’s seen enough of his Argeneau relatives taken down for the count, but he never imagined he’d let himself fall in love—until he meets the enthralling, charmingly skittish, and oh-so-mortal Carolyn. But how will he reveal what he is and still convince this once-bitten mortal to trust him with her heart . . . and her forever?
For anyone who’s familiar with either myself or my blog, then you know how much I love vampires and in particular, vampire romances. And I especially love a Lynsay Sands vampire romance. And it’s not just because a lot of these vampires are based in Canada, it’s because they’re not really vampires, they’re immortal descendents of Atlantis. They have nanos in them that keep them at peak physical condition and prevents them from aging. The trade off is the need to ingest blood on a regular basis.
Did I mention that if you do a blood exchange with one of these immortals the nanos will reverse the aging process until you look like a perfect 25 years old? I want to be bitten by one of these vampires.
Under a Vampire Moon is the 16th book in the Argeneau Vampire series, and I have to say these books keep getting better and better. I loved that Carolyn had to fight so hard against her attraction to a much younger man, I loved that Christian didn’t spend all his time fighting the attraction (like so many of his cousins did), and I even loved Gia’s insane plan for getting the two of them together.
I think the thing I liked best about Under a Vampire Moon is that the object of uber-hot, vampire, Christian Notte’s affections was an older woman. Caro was in her forties, while Christian looks about twenty-five. And why is this the best part? Well, let’s just say I’m not getting any younger. :-)
You can pick up your own copy at your local book store, or from Amazon.com. While you’re at it, try the other books in the series. Another one of the great things about this series is that even if you don’t read them in the proper order they’ll still make sense.
