Buckle up—the argeneaus are back in a sexy, witty new novel from New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands

Dante Notte has heard it said that love hurts. He just wasn’t expecting it to run him over in an RV. Still, a punctured lung and broken ribs are nothing compared to the full-body shock he feels whenever he’s near the vehicle’s driver, Mary Winslow. He needs to keep her safe from their pursuers while he rescues his brother. Most challenging of all, he needs to claim this smart, stubborn woman as his life mate.

The naked, injured, insanely gorgeous younger man who clambered into her RV insists they belong together. If Mary wasn’t feeling their incredible connection in every inch of her being, she wouldn’t believe it. But now that the men who took Dante’s twin are after her too, trusting her gut means risking her life for an immortal who’s the very definition of a perfect stranger.

Loved the heroin, Mary. Reminded me of some the author's eatlier works. Had to put the book down several times because was laughing so hard at certain scenes. This is the Lynsay Sands that I love to read.

3.5 stars. I have read all of this series and watched the ups and downs of this author and the last few books have been all downs for me. This one surprised me a little. There were not as many slap stick or duh moments from the characters for one. The character building was more strong and the graphic moments were not badly done. Definitely one of her better installments. I didn't care for the plot because I feel like I missed a whole dang book, like over half the story line. The humor was good and I didn't come away feeling too much like I had read something from an aging grandmother. The ending was too quickly resolved between the two main characters but good otherwise. I don't mind the cliffhanger but this series is now on my "nothing else to read so I might as well get this" list.

Of course it would end on a cliff hanger and now we wait for the next one to come out. Great read as usual, Lindsey is a great author and she gave us another great book!

Obviously, there will be a continuation to this story but it is short and could have been longer or come to a conclusion.

Runaway Vampire is a light and sweet read. Even though it’s number 23 it can be read as a stand-a-lone. But, I will say Dante Notte and his twin pop up in previous titles, so you might enjoy more if read in order. Their isn't anything new to the series. It's pretty much the same, but with different characters or problems. I have to mention that I really enjoy Sands vampires. They are not your typical vampires and I like this aspect of the series. The storyline is that Dante and his twin where sent to investigate vampire kidnappings and have gotten themselves kidnapped. Dante finds a way to get away, but now we are wondering who has kidnapped them and why? It was enjoyable the little RV drive to avoid being captured again and to protect Mary his life mate. The romance is charming and sweet. Dante, I just adore him. He’s such a nice guy. Mary she was nice and I liked her level headedness. She had concerns being attracted to a man who looks in his mid 20’s early 30’s when she’s an old lady in her 60's, but these two got along. I had fun with the shared dreams and once Mary was changed well the life sex - makes them pass out. I always had fun with that aspect. I will say I did miss Aunt Marguerite. She has a gift for finding life mates and brings a little humor into the story, but here we don’t have her and well this couple “accidentally” runs into each other and nature takes it’s course. I wasn’t overly impressed and it’s not my favorite, but I still enjoyed Runaway Vampire. I must admit that I prefer the older pervious titles, the ones at the beginning. They just had so much more life, humor, and quarry fun to them. Now it just feels a little stale even though we are getting a different plot with the kidnappings. Rated: 3 Stars

I read the books out of order, I read Tomasso's story first, then had to come back and read Dante's. Love Tomasso's story, but I never could get past the fact that Mary was 62 and ended up with a mid 20's body. I wasn't able to ever see her in that light. Then every time they had a near sex scene, I just couldn't see it. The story line otherwise was good and I loved the other characters.

Runaway Vampire by Lynsay Sands Argeneau Series Book Twenty-Three Dante Notte wakes up to find that he and his twin brother, Tomasso, are in cages. He is able to escape but has to leave his brother behind. Running from his captures, he's suddenly run over by an RV. An RV driven by a woman he can't read. A possible life mate. Widowed Mary Winslow is making her way through Texas to go home to Canada. And then everything changes. A thump in the road, a dying man in her RV—naked—and her world turned upside down. She is suddenly running for her life to help save a man she just met. A young man that a woman of her age should not be having such heated thoughts of. Dante is caught between fighting the new feelings of having a life mate and trying to find his twin—and best friend. The author takes the reader on another adventure into the world of the Argeneau's—do not call them vampires, it angers these immortal descendants from Atlantis. So hold on tight for another ride of their life. **Sexual content

I wonder just where the idea of a ‘cougar-like’ relationship came into Lynsay Sands head – especially when the cougar in process is recently widowed and all too human Mary. Completely defying expectations, Mary is older, still mourning the loss of her husband and taking that one last ‘dream trip’ in their RV to recapture the feeling of their yearly trips. Running over the very beautiful, and now damaged Dante was not part of the plan, but she can do nothing BUT try to help. Tomasso was kidnapped and Dante has been ceaselessly trying to find his twin before the unthinkable happens. At just over a century old, Dante has yet to find his mate, and this search for Tomasso while avoiding those who are chasing him has pushed the desire for companionship aside. You’ve heard the phrase ‘it was like being hit by a bus?” Well, Dante was run over by an RV, and lo and behold his destined mate was behind the wheel. Talk about making an impression. It was SO very easy to get lost in Mary and Dante’s story: as the attraction grows and secrets are revealed. Mary is so very solid and wonderful, and manages to challenge Dante in the right ways, that keep their relationship moving forward even when finding Tomasso and avoiding the threats that are coming are foremost in their minds. Clever dialogue, some serious steam and a wonderful pairing that felt unlike any other ‘fated mates’ I have ever seen with a nice balance of give and take between the two. Working well on its own, this story kept me engaged and felt fresh and new, even as a later installment in a long running series. I received a paperback copy of the title from the publisher via Avon Addicts for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

I liked this book but not the ending. It feels like a cliffhanger which I don't like. You're left hanging until the rest of the story is told!
