Overview

When Vampires Go On Vacation . . .

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?

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
In the 16th installment of her long-running Argeneau series (after The Reluctant Vampire), Sands lightly combines romance and humor. Carolyn Conner, a middle-aged advertising executive in the process of divorcing her abusive husband, is on vacation in St. Lucia, where she meets Christian Notte. The centuries-old vampire is immediately attracted to her as a potential mate. In order to circumvent Carolyn’s nervousness and soothe her fears about being attracted to a “younger” man, Christian pretends to be gay, enlisting her as his beard around his family (who are all in on the plan). Nothing can stop their blossoming relationship, save for Carolyn’s mysterious illness and possibly the truth about Christian. Sitcomesque hijinks ensue, courtesy of Christian’s eccentric kinfolk and the increasingly unwieldy scheme. However, the chemistry is genuine, the love scenes sizzle, and the resolution satisfies. Agent: Jenny Bent, the Bent Agency. (May)

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.

    This one is for the fans
    Under a Vampire Moon (Argeneau 16) by Lynsay Sands
    This one is for the fans. Do not read this one first. While some of the others can be read stand-alone this book cuts out almost all the backstory explanations and if you haven’t read any of the others you will probably miss out on a lot. However, if you are like me, a rabid fan of this series, you will absolutely adore Christians and Carolyn’s story. I read this in one sitting. Like all the other Argeneau books this one has “an immortal” Christian meeting his life mate. Carolyn. Carolyn is a recent divorce’ an escapee from a verbal and emotionally abusive marriage. She thinks she is much older than Christian and is not the type to do a boy-toy. With the help of Julius, Marguerite, and his Italian cousins Christian has to convince Carolyn that he is the one for her.
    With Ms. Sands trademark sense of humor, impeccable timing, romance and mystery this is another terrific addition to the Argeneau series.

    One of her Funniest In This Series

    "Under the Vampire Moon" is #16 in the Argeneau Series. This book has Margarite matching up her newly found son, Christian while she and Christian's father, Julius are on their honeymoon in St. Lucia. The comedy in this book of how Christian came to be there, the story that is given to get his mortal lifemate to know him and all the crazy thoughts going on kept me laughing to the end! And the end just came to fast for me! There's also a great twist towards the end that I never saw coming. This book in Lynsay Sands Argeneau series is my second favorite after "The Accidental Vampire". Please keep them coming Lynsay!!!

    Vampires on the beach!

    Vampires are a resort hotel with honeymooners, Captain Jack, a depressed soon-to-be-fully-divorced lady and lots of opportunity for shared pleasure!
    I loved this book, and not just because it's by one of my favorite authors. This book will keep you attached to your nook until you finish it, get upset that you finished so soon, excited that there is a sneak peak to her newest novel with Jeanne Louise Argeneau and then sad again that you have to wait till August to read the full new book.

    Under a Vampire Moon by Lynsay Sands Argeneau Vampires Book 16 C

    Under a Vampire Moon by Lynsay Sands
    Argeneau Vampires Book 16
    Christian Notte's life has changed over the last year. He found his mother and gained a whole new family. His parents, Julius and Marguerite Argeneau Notte, have married now. The only downside is that Christian has been watching as so many in his new family have found their life mates and a happiness he envies. When his mom calls and wants his band that he has with his cousins to come to a St. Lucia resort...his first thought is she has found his life mate. A knack that Marguerite seems to have. When he meets this woman she seems to be attracted to him but afraid of their age difference so his cousin Gia comes up with a way to have them spend time together without the fear of a relationship.

    Carolyn Connor is with her friend Beth and their other friend Genie who works at the resort. When Beth suddenly takes ill Carolyn is on her own until she meets a young couple on their honeymoon and the new band members. The more Caro gets to know Christian, the more she wishes he is someone that she could be in a real relationship with. She enjoys his company and he is oh so handsome. Coming out of a miserable marriage where she had been deceived she really was not looking for more.

    Another great book in this series. Lynsay does a great job of bringing back characters that we met in previous books along with meeting more relatives that will hopefully have stories in future books. As always they are full of humor and a good chase.

    L. Sands rocks. Continue the saga. The stories are immaginative and the characters come to life (mentally that is). I want them to live on and on.
