A PBS member and I have traded some of the Argeneau books, and since I'm taking a break from the series for a bit to catch up on some other reading, I'm loaning her the last three I have.

My least favorite Argeneau book so far. The characters just never grabbed me. Except Bricker. I enjoyed all of his scenes and was glad when he put in an appearance. The Argeneau books usually have a lot of humor in them but this one was a little lacking. And there was no romance at all. No sexual tension, no build up. When Eshe and Armand first meet, they both realize right away that they are life mates, and fall into bed together very quickly after that. And yes, the circumstances didn't really allow them any time to pussy foot around and get to know each other, what with Eshe there to secretly investigate Armand who was suspected of killing his three wives and his son's wife. And even when it became evident that someone was now trying to kill both Eshe and Armand, I never felt any sense of urgency. I didn't know who was behind the attacks, yet still felt little suspense. And then when the mystery was resolved at the end, the action was quite civil and a bit of a letdown.
I always thought it was rather ridiculous in previous books that the women always faint after having sex. But now apparently it's not just the women, it's life mates. Both Armand and Eshe faint afterwards. Was it always both partners and I just never noticed? Either way, I still think its ridiculous.
And as I complained about previous books, the characters are constantly saying things “dryly”. Three times on one page. And sometimes now they even smile dryly. And towards the end I began to notice that they also often murmured when they spoke. I'm a little tired of both words now.
Regardless, every book can't be a winner, and I'm still a fan of the author, and I'll still continue with the series, though maybe not right away.

Thanks for thinking of me! I like this author. The last one I read by this author was mediocre. It felt very rushed and characters/story very one dimensional, but I plan to read this book anyway. Maybe she's run out of ideas for this series. 😳

My Review: I have enjoyed this series and most of the books were great. However, the last two were mediocre at best (including this one). I am probably done with this vampire romance series.
