Still, secretly playing bodyguard to sweet, sexy Nicole is turning out to be the wildest ride of his life. First, he'll put a stop to whoever's targeting her.

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.

    Another great Argeneau Vampire story by Lynsay Sands. Stephano

    Another great Argeneau Vampire story by Lynsay Sands.

    Stephano Notte was turned into a vampire 7 years ago to save his life. He ran away and changed his name to Jake Colson. When he turned 18 he found out his whole family were vampires and they were willing to turn him. He grew up on horror films where vamps were always bad so he felt betrayed and alone and never wanted to turn. Once he was he couldn't deal with it and ran. Now a family member finds him and asks for his help. He has been a bodyguard since he left.

    Nicole Phillips has had several accidents that suggest her soon to be ex might be trying to kill her for her money. Family friend suggests she hire a cook/housekeeper to free up her time so she can finish her work.She agrees.

    Little to either of them know Marguerite is playing matchmaker again. Jake takes the job and pretends to be a cook/housekeeper until things start to go bad and the attempts to kill Nicole become more serious. Jake takes the brunt of the attacks and manages to live through what would have killed her. His cousins come to help and then the rest of the family comes after the second attempt. Jake has also discovered that Nicole is his life mate. Now he just needs to figure out how to stop a killer so he can ask her to join him for eternity.

    I always enjoy the Argeneau vampire books. The only thing that disappointed me was the ending. It was a little short and just ends with Nicole agreeing to the change. I would of like a little more of what happened after the change with the two of them and Jake's family. I gave it 4 stars for that reason.

    Good Read...

    "One Lucky Vampire" by Lynsay Sands is another good addition to her series "Argeneau Vampire Series". Well developed characters and plots.

    However, you may want to read these in order as the continuing story flows better!

    Happy Reading!

    This book answered that pesky question I'd had, "What happened to Stephano?" Turned out he left his family and became Jake
    Colson,  bodyguard.  And when what appears to be attempts on Nicole's life Marguerite gets involved by drafting Jake into playing
    housekeeper. What he finds is his life mate.
    I really enjoyed this book, it had the witty humor and the mystery along with a great story line that a Lynsay Sands book always has.

    HEA after bringing me down

    What is up with these depressed vamps? I usually breeze right though L. Sands' book but the slow going of a depressed vampire is killing me. Love the plot loved the happily ever after but I want my clumsy/funny vamps back.

    So Boring!! Very Disappointing!

    I've always been a big fan of her work but i have to say that this book was so boring and a huge disappointment. I hated all the self reflection from the characters. There was no real chemistry or buildup until the sex. I couldnt even finish it because it had nothing new to offer. Like watching paint dry. I think the series should end if this is the best Sands can come up with.

    I love the Argeneau Vampire Series.  These books are funny and steamy at the same time.  There are 20+ books in this series now and how Linsay continues to come up with new story lines that are fresh and exciting is beyond me but that is exactly what she does.  Each new book in this series leaves me wanting more.
