Vampire Valentine by Lynsay Sands

Mirabeau LaRouche knew she had a job to do, but she never expected her assignment to take her through New York City's dark, dank underground-in her bridesmaid gown, no less! And when her partner turns out to be mortal private investigator Tiny McGraw, Mireabeau knows it's no ordinary Cupid's arrow that has struck her heart this Valentine's Day.

Hearts Untamed by Pamela Palmer

Ten years ago Zeeland left D.C. to join the Therian Guard, needing to put some distance between himself and the still-too-young Julianne. Now he's returned, in the midst of a Valentine's celebration to find Julianne more beautiful than ever, still angry at him for leaving, and up to her lovely eyebrows in an intrigue that threatens both of their immortal lives.

Kiss and Kill Cupid by Jamie Rush

Kat Morgan has no use for Valentine's Day, since hearing other people's thoughts puts a real damper on any kind of intimate relationship. When she overhears the Killer Cupid serial killer targeting her for his Valentine's Day murder, Kat is terrified. But is Adrian, the one man whose thoughts she can't hear, her savior, or killer?

Meet the Author

Lynsay Sands

Lynsay Sands is the nationally bestselling author of the Argeneau/Rogue Hunter vampire series, as well as numerous historicals and anthologies. She’s been writing stories since grade school and considers herself incredibly lucky to be able to make a career out of it. Her hope is that readers can get away from their everyday stress through her stories, and if there are occasional uncontrollable fits of laughter, that’s just a big bonus.

Since she was a kid, Jaime Rush devoured books on unexplained mysteries and psychic phenomena. She knew she would be published, marry a fabulous guy, and win a Toyota Supra. Missing the romance, relationship drama, and action of her favorite television shows—X-Files, Roswell, and Highlander—she created her own mix in the Offspring series.

When New York Times bestselling author Pamela Palmer's initial career goal of captaining starships didn't pan out, she turned to engineering, satisfying her desire for adventure with books and daydreams, until finally succumbing to the need to create worlds of her own. Pamela lives and writes in the suburbs of Washington, D.C.

Biography

Born in Southern Ontario, Lynsay Sands is the New York Times bestselling author of the Argeneau Vampire series. She has written more than 34 books and anthologies since her first novel was published in 1997. Her romantic comedies span three genres—historical, contemporary, and paranormal—and have made the Waldenbooks, Barnes & Noble, USA Today, and New York Times bestseller lists.

Lynsay's books are read in more than twelve countries and have been translated into at least six languages. She's been a nominee for both the Romantic Times Best Historical Romance Award and the Romantic Times Best Paranormal Romance Award, was nominated and placed three times in the RIO (Reviewers International Organization) Awards of Excellence, and has several books on All About Romance's Favorite Funnies list.

Good To Know

1.) I started The Deed (my first romantic comedy and the first book to be published) a year after my mother's death. I was very close to my mother and the year following her death was about the most miserable time imaginable. But then I decided I was tired of being down and unhappy, and looked around for something to lift my spirits and make me laugh. When I couldn't find anything, I decided to sit down and write my own. It worked! Emmalene and Amaury's antics in The The Deed had me chuckling as I wrote.
2.) I met my husband in New York in July 2003. I was there because of the RWA conference and he was there on vacation. The first day there we kept running into each other and chatting in front of the hotel, and then he asked to join our group (it was very brave of him. He was the lone male amongst six or seven women, lol). He's a Brit and I'm Canadian and the first two months of our relationship were conducted by phone as well as over the internet. Our first date was a week in New York in September, followed by three weeks in England. He then came to Canada in both November and December, the first time to propose and the second time for Christmas with my family and then to take me back to England with him for New Years. I lived in Northern England for two years. We married in New York and now live in Canada.
3.) I was writing about my husband before I met him. Single White Vampire came out in September 2003 and I took a copy with me to England when I went for the three weeks. I walked into my now-hubby's house to find at least six months worth of mail unopened and stacked up on a shelf inside the front door. When I stopped dead, eyes going wide with shock and asked "My God. That's mail. You don't open your mail?" He looked embarrassed and muttered some explanation about bills automatically being paid by the bank so no need to open those and everything else was unsolicited and he couldn't be bothered. When I burst out laughing, he started to frown and said "What?" My response was to dig out the copy of Single White Vampire and hand it over with the suggestion he read it. The mail thing wasn't the only similarity he had to Lucern Argeneau. There are many more and when he sat down to read the book, he kept stopping and turning a rather startled and even suspicious gaze my way and muttering that this sounded familiar" or that did. I had to point out that it really was coincidence, that I had written that story at least nine months before meeting him. LOL.

    Fun & Sexy read

    This book was like a meal...
    Vampire Valentine by Lynsay Sands - I checked this book out at the Library because I am currently working my way through this series. This one was a fun story, no meat just some yummy potatoes. I like Tinys' character so I was happy to have a story with him but.... I don't know I just wish this was a full book. Worth the read though check it out.
    Hearts untamed by Pamela Palmer - Absolutely sexy meaty story. I love Palmer's Feral warrior series so I was pleasantly surprised to discovered this short story in there. Hot & sexy alpha male Zeeland & Julianne are sizzling in this one. Great short story.
    Kiss and Kill Cupid by Jamie rush - Well here is your side salad with your meal. I love salads but if that was all there was you would still be hungry for more. Fun short story to round out the book.
    Bottom line, check it out from the library before your decide if you want it for your permanent library.

    OK but......

    Love every book I have read by Lynsay Sands and was happy to see Tiny get his own story. However the book ended before the tale was done. Felt more like a bridge between books rather than a stand alone story, I am still waiting to find out how it will end. Other two authors were ok and I might check out their other books. 231 pages for three stories was just too short to develop characters and the quality did not justify the price. Overall a disappointment.

    Oh my!

    So I got this book when I was finishing the Argeneau Vampire series by Ms. Sands. And I was very excited to finally hear Tiny's story. Usually when I get these short story books with several authors including their own stories, I only stick to the one that I want to read. However, with this one I took a chance and continued reading, and boy oh boy was I happy I did. Both Ms. Palmer and Ms. Rush did a great job at providing their own stories and even so much so that I have now started researching what books they have and will eventually move on to read them. When ending a series it is always heart wrenching to say "goodbye" to those characters I have grown to love and adore and often expect in my life, so I am glad I have two other authors to explore. If you are looking for a different take on the paranormal road, then I recommend this book to read. It was offer you insight into different views of those paths and even includes a little romance and some nice steamy sexy scenes. All three authors also have a bit of a sense of humor and I found myself laughing out loud at times. Enjoy, its a must read!

    If you like a vampire romance with an ongoing story line this is it!

    Great vampire series, romance with twists. Had a friend that suggested this series, it took a couple of chapters but I was hooked & couldn't put the book down!

    Only Read Lynsay Sands

    I only purchased this book for Tiny's story in the Argeneau series & this was probably the most disappointing story of them all. It was too short... it seemed like there were parts missing & it ended waaayyyy to early.

    3 fun short stories

    Always a pleasure to read a Lynsay Sands story. I also enjoyed the other two included in this book. I often choose compilations as a way to 'interview' an author I am not familiar with when paired with an author I really enjoy. This book was 3 enjoyable stories by 3 authors I will be sure to continue following.

    Too short

    I understand this was a book of anthologies, but the story by Lynsay Sands was way too short. I was looking forward to more information about Tiny.

    Bitten by Cupid by Linsay Sands

    I bought this book for the Linsay Sands story of Tiny, a character I knew from early book in her "Argeneau Series" entitled "Vampire Interrupted". I love her series and couldn't wait for this to come out. I read the rest of the stories in this book and enjoyed them very much too, that was a welcomed surprise. This is an extremely good read for anyone who loves paranormal romances with fun twist and turns.

    Vampires

    Excellent series, especially if you are a fan of the Anita Blake Vampire Hunter Series, and the Sookie Stackhouse Series.

    fun romantic fantasy collection

    "Vampire Valentine" by Lynsay Sands. Detective McGraw wants to become lifemate to vampire Mirabeau LaRouche, but though attracted to the mortal she has doubts this is wise.

    "Hearts Untamed" by Pamela Palmer. A decade ago Zeeland spurned Therein half-breed Julianna, but he is back so she hides from him fearing his reaction to her Ilina bloodline.

    "Kiss and Kill Cupid" by Jaime Rush. Kristy Morgan always loathed her ESP skill of hearing the thoughts of others, but now she overhears someone planning to kill her with Adrian Kruger vowing to keep her safe.

    This fun romantic fantasy collection with a wonderful dark paranormal bite shows why the three authors' respective paranormal series (see Lynsay Sands' the Argeneau saga, Patricia Palmer's Untamed thrillers and Jamie Rush's Darkness tales) are popular.

    Although I'm partial to Linsay Sands stories, I believe hers was

    Although I'm partial to Linsay Sands stories, I believe hers was the best in this set of novellas. By itself it would have been at least a 4
    star.
    The novella by Pamela Palmer left me feeling as if I was missing parts of the story. I'm assuming maybe reading her other books might
    have helped with this.
    Jaime Rush's novella was too predictable for my taste.

    Good story, but only novelette

    This story by Lynsay Sands plays into the Argeneau vampire series, so I purchased it, as good to know what is going on in the timeline of these stories, but keep in mind only a third of this book involves the Argeneau vampire series.

    The read was great! Yet I was left with the fact that it ended

    The read was great! Yet I was left with the fact that it ended too quickly. It was a no nonsense to the point read. I would have loved to know a little more about Tinh and Mirabeau. I have been reading the series for a while now and was thrilled that Tinh found a lifemate. It is a wonderful story to spend an afternoon with to de stress Ms. Sands writing is both funny and uplifting. Both characters are strong and soft with the right measures of both for both sexes. Tinh is intuitive and Mirabeau knows when enough is enough. You won't regret picking up this story. I didn't read the rest of it yet I was only really interested in the Lyndsy Sands story.

    Why did I get it.

    I held out reading this book and now I know why. The vampire story was just 83 pages and then you are left with 2 other authors which I would never read. I think it was a cheap shot on the authors part. She would have done better to write a short story.

    That said the 83 pages were good but it stopped like I could not believe it. I would give the 83 pages 4 stars the whole book 2.5
