Born to Bite is the 13th book in the Argeneau series by Lynsay Sands. This book takes place immediately after the Rouge Hunter with (I think) part of them coinciding. Eshe, one of the Enforcers for the council, is sent to investigate Armand Argeneau in the deaths of his previous wives as well as the death of his son's wife. Armand is told by his brother Lucian that Eshe is in need of protection as a way to get Eshe in the door. While Eshe begins her investigation she discovers that there are many who care for Armand, including the town-folk where he lives, the families of his deceased wives and his second (Cedrick). Born to Bite is not exactly the typical Argeneau novel, Eshe and Armand are already both immortal and have both previously had a life mate. There is no adjustment to learning about the immortals and the possibility of lifemates. Rather this book focus on discovering a mystery that has plagued Armand Argeneau for many years. I really enjoyed this addition to the series, getting the chance to get to know Eshe and Armand was a treat!

Nothing better than resolving cliffhangers in a very satisfying way. And needless to say, Ms. Sands accomplished that easily. As always, I thoroughly enjoyed Lynsay's latest. The chemistry between the H/H was fabulous and kept me reading way, way passed my bedtime. Absolutely loved it.

Let me begin by saying I love this series and I did like this book, however, Armand and Esche really did not have the sizzle of the couples in the previous books. I agree with the reviewer who said everything between them was "accepted and expected". Armand does at first try to send Esche away to protect her from the fate of his wives but he doesn't try very hard or for very long so no real sexual tension gets built up. Having said this, I am glad the mystery that left me hanging in the previous novel was cleard up and even though I thought I had it figured out early on, there was a twist I didn't expect. I still remain a fan of the series and will jump on the next novel.

Vampire Armand Argeneau is stunned when his lifemate and two other women close to him all died mysteriously accidental. The Council sends undercover Enforcer Eshe d'Aureus to investigate the farmer as the brass wonders if Armand is a spousal serial killer. His brother Lucien enables Eshe to get onto Armand's farm as he tells his sibling that she is hiding from Leonius Livius the second who wants her dead. As she investigates her host, she and Armand are shocked to realize they are life mates. Neither is pleased with this revelation as she fears she loves a psychopathic murderer and he fears the three women he cherished were murdered by an unknown adversary who probably will make his fourth female he holds dearly the next target. When the incidents begin, Eshe wants to believe a third party is causing them, but she still has niggling doubts about her beloved as all evidence seems to point to him yet everyone who knows him including his in-laws think the world of him. The latest Argeneau urban fantasy (see Bite Me if You Can, Love Bites and A Quick Bite) is a terrific atypical entry in which the story line is more of a super investigative thriller rather than the vampire romance though the latter is a key secondary subplot. The story line is fast-paced and contains amusing interludes especially when Eshe drives Lucien crazy. Series fans will relish this wonderful tale while newcomers will also appreciate the vampiric whodunit. Harriet Klausner

Armand seemed to be plagued with the worst luck in the women department. Losing 3 wives and a daughter-in-law, he finally decided, even before his son list his wife, to stay away from family members, but especially the female's. This of course led to a very lonely life and at the top of the councils suspect list. Lucian brings in Eshe to find the truth, and what results is a great mystery along with the two discovering they are life mates.

Exactly what you would expect from Lynsay Sands. Funny, Sexy and thrilling to read. I could not put the book down and the way she discribes their first tast of food again would make you think that Lynsay is a vampire herself. Great book and series.

An Argeneau Vampire novel by author Lynsay Sands. Armand Argeneau has lost three wives to unexpected deaths and the "council" has sent an enforcer (Eshe) to see if he was in any way responsible. Eshe's attraction towards Armand proves to be more deadly than she anticipated. Another life is on the line and answers are needed immediately.I enjoyed reading this book but thought the hero of the story should not have been shown as being so complacent in accepting the deaths of his wives. I think it weakened his character. A relentless quest to investigate their untimely deaths would have added more to Armand's character.

Really nice to finally have several big mysteries solved in this great series.

Another great story by Lynsay Sands. I love the Argeneau series and wish I was apart of their family LOL.In Born to Bite you finally get to hear Armand's story and everything about his past. Including how all three of his wives died. Armand goes on a mission along with Eshe to try to find out if his wives deaths were really an accident or if they were murdered.Of course in the beginning, Armand has no idea that Eshe was really sent there to investigate him and find out if he has anything to do with their deaths. He thinks he is doing Lucian a favor by hiding Eshe on his farm. One thing leads to another between the two, and you have an exciting little trip.What I liked the most about this story was, that Armand had given up on finding love and practically lived alone on his farm and with his workers. He kept his distance from his family feeling like anyone he was around dies. He never spent time with his children or barely even called anyone. So when he meets Eshe and realizes it's another shot at love his whole world changes. Same goes for Eshe, who lost her life mate in a battle. They were both given the chance to love again and be happy.Though some parts were very predictable, I still very much enjoyed Born to Bite. Of course Lynsay Sands never fails when it comes to the romance parts. Just like the other books in this series, I laughed and fell in love with the Argeneau family all over again. I found Lucian very funny in this book. I love him mated!Now, the wait for the next Argeneau story. Which is going to kill me.I give Born to Bite Four Stars!

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to review Born To Bite by Lynsay Sands. The Argeneau series is one of my favorites, and this one is by far the hottest one yet.Born to Bite is Armand's story, and holds a key to the puzzle that ties the series together. Like many other readers I was wondering if Armand really killed his wives, and who set up Nicholas. Well Born to Bite explains it and finally gives up closure on the subject. Eshe and Armand's story was one of my favorites. I have to say I was surprised by who really was the killer, and why. Born to Bite was one of those books, you couldn't put down. The romance and mystery mix was perfect. Eshe was a strong and vibrant character. I loved her wild hair, crazy motorcycle, and her life for the moment attitude. She was just what Armand needed to bring him out of his shell and back to being apart of the Argeneau family. Born to Bite is not exactly the typical Argeneau novel, Eshe and Armand are already both immortal and have both previously had a life mate. There is no search for lifemates, or adjusting to being immortal, instead Born to Bite explains the mystery of Armand's wives and how they died. Born to Bite , is the 13th book in the Argeneau, and though it could be read as a stand alone, I suggest reading them in order to get the full feel for the series. I found Born to Bite to be a wonderful addition to the series, and look forward to the next. This series is one of the best vampire series out there, and I recommend it to any vampire lover.

Immortals, really good looking immortals, that fall in love with mortal women. Comedy and danger come into play to make this a fast page turner or on a nook a quick page swipper.

Sands has created human characters that are far from Stoker's nightmares. There is much humour, tenderness, and a mystery plot that rides to the end. As with the preceding novels in this series, I highly recommend the Argeneau vampire series for light, and yet, some semi-serious reading entertainment. -------Leonard
