Overview

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!

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.

    Series best - definitely a keeper!

    Alex Willan is a chef opening a new restaurant, but things aren't happening as fast as they should due to a string of mishaps. Unbeknownst to her, her sisters have become coupled with Immortals, and are trying to find her lifemate so they won't have to continue without her. Cale, the hero, is told that Alex is his lifemate, and jumps in to help Alex open her new restaurant and sort out the supposed mishaps. What was unusual (and refreshing) was that Cale was so OPEN to finding somebody, even if he was doing just fine on his own; he was willing to step up while she figured out her footing professionally and personally. Of course Sands pokes fun, with lines like "her words not really making it past his thoughts about spending eternity with her." I loved that the characters took their time and learned about each other. It added depth to the sexual and romantic tension between Alex and Cale. It also showed the deep respect that Cale had for Alex's personality; he enjoyed her quirks and her independence, and found ways to teach her to compromise. The mystery aspect moved along nicely and while you might have an idea who it may be, there are a few roadblocks thrown in to make you question yourself. And of course, since this is a series you see one rather large plot line from another story be resolved. If you haven't read this series, it's okay. This story can be read as a standalone, but it does add more to your reading if you know the characters. Hungry for You is on my Christmas list, and a must-purchase for my library. *I received a free digital galley courtesy of Harper Collins. This is a review based on an uncorrected e-proof*

    At over 2000 years old Cale thought he would never know the treasure of having a life mate. Alexandra, a workaholic had no time for a
    man in her life, certainly not one she just hired and has to keep a professional working relationship with. And that is when the fun stars.
    Of course the immortal Bricker is there keeping everything even more amusing, and the little mystery Sands has in her books is there
    as well. 
    This was a really good book that I highly recommend, which I know I say a lot about Linsay Sands novels, but she keeps writing great
    books. Hungry For You is just another hit in her collection.

    Love the Argeneau series

    I have now read all of the Argeneau Vampire series to date, and truly enjoyed all of them. Sexy, suspenseful, and a great twist on the vampire genre, Margeruite Argeneau and her family definitely leave you wanting more. Read them, you will be glad you did.

    Loved the book but

    There are a few mistakes in the grammer and they even mistaken Decker has Cale's cousin instead of his brother. But the book is great.

    And Yet, Another Great Book!!!

    This is #14 in the Argeneau Series. Lydsay Sands pulls off another great novel. This time it's Alex who finds her lifemate in the form of Cale; an immortal over 2000 years old. Of course, she doesn't know this... and the laughter begins when he discovers food, wet dreams and all that comes with finding a mate. Alex is also funny when she discovers Cale isn't the "perfect man" and runs to warn her sister, Sam, that he's a vampire. You'll have to read the book to find out how she discovered this fact, what she did to warn her sister, etc... And you will laugh out loud at Cale learning about microwaves and everything to do with "wooing his girl".

    Argeneau Vampire Series

    Hungry for you is just as good as all the other books in this series. Exciting and fast paced the characters are fun and interesting. This was a very very good read. I have about 7 so far in this series and will purchase more. The best thing I can say is I read and reread them. That makes good books to me.
    lynsay Sands is a very good author.

    Love this series!!

    I can always count on Lynsay Sands to have me laughing, sighing, and blushing all within the same book. This is one of my all time favorite authors. Her characters always come with a lot of sarcasm and ridiculously funny incidents.


    Cale Valens is one of my favorite Argeneau vampires. The level headed businessman of the family brings tons of laughter when he gets stuck as the chef for Alexandra's restaruant in order to get closer to her. Even after the disastrous attempt at cooking he still needs to find a way to convince Alexandra to give him a chance. Having this sexy vampire do his level best to gain your attention would definetely be many women's dream come true (Mine for sure). Unfortunatley due to Alexandra's tragic relationships from the past she really wasn't open to a new one. Reading how Cale is able to change her mind on the subject was heartwarming and hilarious. Lynsay Sands' "Hungry For You" is a recipe for success!
