TWICE BITTEN – A Lynsay Sands Review & Excerpt Reveal

How does Lynsay Sands continue to impress dozens of books later in the iconic Argeneau series! I loved this novel (and series) simply because it sets itself apart from other typical vampire romances. The characters and their immortality are a focus of the story but not the main plot. In Twice Bitten we get to have danger at every turn unrelated to Elspeth’s abilities!

Elspeth’s finally out of her own after decades under her mothers control. But within weeks she returns home to find not only her mother but her two sisters as well. And as soon as they arrive, it seems trouble arrives with them. With multiple attempts on her life and the lives of her friends and family, Elspeth has to come to terms that all is not what it seems. And sometimes the past can haunt you in many different ways.

Wyatt is entranced by the woman who’s moved in to his mothers new apartment. They have a past but Elspeth doesn’t seem to remember their night of blissful years ago. And there’s more secrets hiding behind this beauty’s eyes. Wyatt’s trained to protect but he never planned on protecting an immortal whom he’s fallen in love with.

Once again, Sands impresses with strong, independent female leads. Elspeth is not afraid to take charge of her own life even in the face of death. The twists and turns throughout Twice Bitten will leave you on the edge of your seat wondering just who could be after Elspeth and even Wyatt. Mix in some classic humor and of course the sexy aspect and this classic vampire novel belongs in your TBR pile!

Thrilling, witty, and oh-so-sexy, Lynsay Sands’ Argeneau novel brings together a beautiful Immortal and the man who is her destiny…

For someone who’s been around for over a hundred and forty years, immortal Elspeth Argeneau hasn’t done a whole lot of living. Now that she’s moved away from her controlling mother, she’s tracking down rogue vampires and enjoying some overdue freedom. A fling would be fun. A life mate can wait. Yet to Elspeth’s surprise, her landlady’s hot grandson checks both boxes.
Wyatt fell instantly in love with Elspeth four years ago. He’s stunned to run into her again, especially as she has no memory of him. Then again, there are a lot of things about Elspeth that don’t make sense, like the miraculous speed with which her wounds heal. And the chemistry that transforms every touch into an explosion of desire. But with mysterious “accidents” besieging Elspeth, the ex-Special Forces soldier appoints himself her bodyguard. But time is running out to uncover the truth about her enemies—and rediscover the man determined to love her for eternity.
Each book in this series can be read as a standalone story.

 “Wyatt?” she said, surprised at how breathless her voice was.

She was panting, Elspeth realized. The man hadn’t even touched her and she was panting like an overheated dog . . . or a horny one.

“I’m sorry,” Wyatt growled, and turned away to quickly search the room, and then spotting the bath towel over the towel rack, he grabbed it and turned back to offer it to her.

Elspeth reached for it, but froze when their hands touched. For a minute, they just remained like that, both silent and still as shockwaves rolled through them, and then Wyatt cleared his throat. His voice was husky as he said, “I know you’re not ready for a life mate, and I-“

That was as far as he got before Elspeth finished taking the towel from him, let it drop to the floor, and reached for him instead.

IMMORTALLY YOURS – A Lynsay Sands Review

img_3149

The Argeneau series is back in the Canadian borders and this time is vampire versus vampire. Beth has no problem hunting down rogue vampires in her home town. But when her lifetime crush, Scotty becomes her new partner, she’s got more battles OFF the battlefield and in her mind.

Scotty’s given her a wide berth their whole “friendship”, if that’s what one can call trusting one another while trading barbs and insults. But now Scotty seems to have done a 180 on her and instead of pushing her away, he’s pulling her closer and confusing her heart. When multiple attempts on Beth’s life threaten to cut short their time together, Scotty knows that while he will do anything and everything to save her, he needs to tell her why,

I liked having an Argeneau novel where BOTH are already vampires, there’s no typical climax of one of them almost dying and needing to be turned to survive. The crux of these two is that Scotty has to come to terms with his true feelings as Beth is beginning to admit that she man never have Scotty to herself. I like that we get to see a bot of both of their pasts while in present day, modern Beth gets to kick some butt. With most romance hero tropes, Scotty wants to protect Beth and stop her from ever getting hurt. But Beth stands her ground and knows that she can take care of herself. And when she learns that SHE is his life mate…she knows he needs to take her as she is or not at all.

A twisty dichotomy between friends and lovers with fun and wacky new characters. Immortally Yours is definitely an action-packed vampire romance and one of Lynsay’s best yet. Oh…and as for who you think the bad guy is? Just you wait and see…


33889462.jpgIrresistible chemistry and thrilling suspense combine in this electrifying new installment in New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands’ Argeneau series

One hundred and twenty-five years is a long time to nurse a crush. That’s how long it’s been since Beth Argenis first met Cullen “Scotty” MacDonald and he instantly became the star of her most X-rated dreams. Back then, he was rescuing her from a Rogue Immortal. Now Beth’s a Rogue Hunter—a damn good one. She doesn’t need saving anymore, despite what Scotty thinks. What she does need is the fierce, wild desire that finally erupts between them.

Scotty has hesitated to claim Beth as his own. But one explosive kiss confirms what he’s long suspected: She’s his life mate. But Beth is tough, fearless, beautiful…and in immortal danger. Unless he wants to lose her forever, he’ll have to rethink everything he once believed about love and destiny as well as confront an enemy who’s terrifyingly close.

lynsay.jpgI was born in 1142 which is why my first love is historicals. I’ll let you guess why I love stories of immortals…er…well, vampires to you people. When I first started writing the family history, everyone was up in arms, afraid I was revealing too much, but I explained they were being published as fiction and I wouldn’t use real names. Of course, that was before I found I just couldn’t write the stories with other names…

Just kidding! I couldn’t resist. Of course, I’m not a vampire. I wouldn’t mind being one. It would be a heck of a diet and I’m always looking for a successful diet, but despite not being a vampire…well…a gal can dream can’t she? And that’s what books are; waking dreams or stories, tales to amuse, entertain and distract us from everyday life.

I love books. Reading books takes me away to other worlds and on grand adventures I just couldn’t have otherwise. Writing them does the same, but also lets me play God for a bit. I know that sounds weird, but when writing my stories, I decide who lives and dies, who succeeds or fails and so on. I can give the good guys the happy endings they deserve and be sure the bad guys lose and get their comeuppance. Unfortunately, that’s something that doesn’t always happen in real life.

Perhaps that’s why writers write. Maybe we writers are all secret control freaks, wanting to control the world. Or maybe we’re just dreamers lucky enough to be able to make a living at dreaming. Either way I love writing and would do it whether I was paid for it or not. But I’m very very grateful to be able to share these stories with you. I hope they help you escape your troubles and trials if only for a little bit, and I hope they make you smile…You can be certain I’m often chuckling myself silly while writing them. Enjoy!

IMMORTAL NIGHTS – A Lynsay Sands Reviw

**ARC received from Edelweiss for an honest review**

The Argeneau Series was where my romance reading really began. (Lynsay Sands and Katie MacAlister were my first obsessions!) Lynsay Sands has one of the greatest explanations for vampirism (or immortals in this case) that I have ever come across and I love telling fellow romance readers about her! I got to read Dante’s and Tomasso’s books back to back and Tomasso may be my favorite of the twins.

Tomasso is held captive in a cargo hold by an evil doctor/scientist’s crazy henchmen. Little do they know that Abigail is in the back hiding from them as well after they’ve hired her best friend, Jet, on an “emergency” flight.

We go from airplane, to stranded on an island, to island villas as Abigail and Tomasso repeatedly have to rescue one another. Tomasso’s inner dialogue was so passionate about Abigail and her ability to stay calm under pressure and her ingenuity to survive. I love seeing the male character in novels become dependent not the female character and admire her for it; rather than admonish her for thinking him weak.

Abigail struggles throughout most of the book with waking up in different locations. If you don’t read the Argeneau Series that won’t make sense to you. But if you do..hooo boy you know why! ….Ok non-readers I’ll let you in on a secret. In Sands’ world, the immortals have one true life mate that they cannot control or read their mind. This makes them a perfect pair (among other things that I won’t go into detail about). One of the benefits of life mates however is shared pleasure. That’s right…they can feel one another’s pleasure. And when it gets to the breaking point? They pass out from it! Trust me this makes for some hilarious scenes. When you go to read just pay attention to blood bags….its one of the best scenes in the book.

Abigail and Tomasso also discover how similar the two of them are when it comes time for Tomasso to reveal what he truly is; immortal. Abigail’s years of studying to become a doctor lead her to figuring out, mostly, how Tomasso’s family are all immortal and all the side effects it causes. Not only are both of them strong and supportive of one another; they both realize that the other is interested in science and how things work. Once again the life mate bond is reinforced.

As usual others from the Argeneau clan enter the picture near the end of our story; including the newly life-mated Dante and Mary (also a great story!). As always Lucian and Marguerite have their appearances. And it seems the match maker Marguerite has a plan for Jet…… can’t wait to see what happens in the future!

Until next review!!! Happy Bingeing Beauties!

IMMORTAL NIGHTS – Lynsay Sands

RELEASE DATE: 9/20

In a sizzling new Argeneau novel from New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands, an impulsive rescue pairs a sexy immortal with the woman made to be his for eternity.

Abigail Forsythe’s life hasn’t been easy lately. Still, if there’s one thing guaranteed to take her mind off an empty bank account and abandoned dreams, it’s a naked man locked in a plane’s cargo hold. A very big, incredibly gorgeous naked man. And when instinct prompts her to free him, Abigail must rely on this stranger for survival…a stranger who leaves her thrumming with need every time they touch.

Tomasso Notte knows he’s found his life mate in Abigail. Now he just has to hold on to her. They’re miles from civilization, hunted by his kidnappers. Abigail has no idea of Tomasso’s abilities, or of how intensely pleasurable their unique connection can be. But he’s about to show her, beginning with one wild, hot, immortal night…
