Inez Urso is beginning to have her doubts. Her business associate Thomas Argeneau has some interesting traits, like an allergic reaction to the sun, excellent night vision, and not much of an appetite for food. And to top it all off, he just tried to bite her neck... but maybe that was a sign of passion. If so, she'd be happy to experience more, despite her determination n ...more

~VAMPIRES ARE FOREVER... ON THE PHONE~
This is another instalment in the Argeneau vampire series with Thomas Argeneau as our hero this time. He's one of the younger immortals (at 200 years old) and when his aunt Marguerite goes missing Thomas is the only one in the family able to go to London and find her. Meeting him at the airport is Inez a corporate type from the family's U.K Company. She's been teame

Vampires Are Forever is the 8th book in the Argeneau series by the very talented Lynsay Sands. I've been reading this series for a while. When I need a good light vampire romance book to read, I look for Sands!
If your familiar with this series, then you know you don't exactly have to read it in order. They all star a different couple, that is based around the Argeneau family. I always was a fan of Thomas Argeneau from the first joke he cracked. He is the "younger" of the Argeneau family, and isn

My local library is running a class aimed at teaching kids they cannot pick a book by its cover—but isn’t that what we all do? I found some dozen paperbacks added to the bookcase in the upstairs hall at the beach house, and this was one of four that I elected to take to read, but I almost skipped this one, as its cover shows a lurid picture of two nearly naked people huddled in a hug, with the male having a tattoo showing a bat superimposed over the moon, while the lady in his arms, wearing a sl ...more

If you are looking for some light, fun reading, then this is the book for you. However, space the books in this series out because reading them right after each other can become tedious.

I enjoy the characters in these series so much, but the storylines are just so weak. The dialog between Thomas and Inez is witty and entertaining, so why can't their story be the same? The author was trying to weave a "mystery" into what are basically light-hearted vampire romances. Stick to the romance because t

For my reaction to this series, see my review of A Quick Bite. Although not the same, it's similar enough, or causes a similar enough reaction in me for one to serve for both. That's not to say these two novels are exactly formulaic; I think that anyone who reads the one will enjoy the other without ever having the here-we-go-again feeling rearing its ugly head.

In fact, I liked it and it's series mate enough that I may well go in search of the remainder of the series—very unusual for me and roma

The next book in Lynsay Sands "Vampire" Argeneau Series (Book 8). This is a very good book! It only has 3 stars as compared with the last one she wrote (which was VERY funny). This book is very funny at the beginning, but as the story treks on, not so much. Most of Ms. Sands "vampire" books do not have much plot, and this is one of them. However, like all of her books this is a fun and fast read. This book's hero is Thomas, cousin of Marguerite’s children. It is nice to finally read his story, a ...more

Where did my fun, carefree Thomas go?

Description:

Inez Urso notices that her new business associate, Thomas Argeneau, has some interesting traits: an allergy to sunlight, excellent night vision, and not much of an appetite for food. To top it off, he has just tried to bite her neck. A sign of passion? Inez is determined not to mix business with pleasure

My Thoughts:

Ok, I liked the book, I liked the action in the book. However there were a few things that kinda disappointed me. Firstly, this Thomas

Argeneau isn't my favorite series, but I've only read two books so far. #1/#8 <--- very out of character for me, I know. Three words: Year End Challenges. But, I did enjoy this one better than the first. Maybe b/c I read it vs. listened to the audiobook [didn't like the narrator]. Either way, it was about 3.5 stars for me, but I rounded up to 4.

Vampires Are Forever is the HEA of Thomas and Inez. Thomas is one of the Argeneau babes, just over 200 years old. He's sent to Europe to find Aunt Mar

Maybe it's because I jumped in to the series at book 8 (for a group challenge read), but this just fell utterly flat for me. The dialogue was stilted and varied between formal and silly slang. The mystery that had everyone on edge wasn't really a mystery at all and was just brushed aside by the end of the book. The vampires seemed somewhat weak with no blood-lust or savagery too them that so often lends to their 'danger appeal.' Inez was kind of a dud as were most of the other women in this stor ...more

3.5 Stars, rounded up to 4 because my issues were mostly a matter of personal taste.

Read as part of the Gotta Have Paranormal Romance With a Kick Group Hunk Alert Challenge

This was a light and fluffy vampire romance. The book was well-written and the characters relatable. It was an easy read, and even a picky writer such as myself didn't spot any technical issues. The basis of this challenge was to read about someone else's BBF (Book Boyfriend), and I understand why Thomas would qualify. He's

The Flooze
Probably my least favorite so far. I loved Thomas' character in the preceding books, and thought the search for Marguerite would be intriguing. To my dismay, nothing much happens in this book--apart from Thomas' lifemate constantly berating herself.

Inez' insecurity was tiring. There are countless moments throughout the book when, despite Thomas' obvious interest, Inez harps on her inadequacies. Even mid-makeout session, she's so busy wishing she were a leggy blonde, she tunes out Thomas' roving

Well this wasn't the best of the series. I was a little disappointed with Thomas' book. I had enjoyed him as a minor character in the series most of the way because of his personality. However in this book which is supposed to be his main book, he's almost a filler. The main mystery is about how his aunt has disappeared. I love that it brings all the other couples back from the series but this is Thomas' book. I didn't feel the connection between him and Inez. I felt the ending was extremely rus ...more

Okay - this nails it for me. I just can't get into Ms. Sands books. To be fair I have only read a novella and this book(which I am reading for a challenge). So I have not read them all in order but for me this story was just boring. I couldn't find myself caring about any of it and for me the chemistry between the two main characters was non-existent. Don't get me wrong, Thomas seemed very sweet and Inez wasn't an unlikable character but the whole thing was just pretty blah for me. I know a lot ...more

Recommends it for: everyone
I loved this book as well. It has some twists to it that keep you on edge, and rooting for things to go a certain way. It makes you feel like you are living in there with them. I felt my heart start to beat faster with each of theirs as if we were one person. I really enjoyed the battles and the romance equally. I am not one big on battle, but when they are put in these texts I would love to be wrapped up in them. I could feel each touch, hear each sound, and thought each thought as if they were ...more

So I grabbed this book from a grocery store because I judged a book by its cover and didn't realize it was a whole series. LOVED IT THE BEST OF THE SERIES! It gives a fabulous and realistic backstory to the origin of THESE vampires and how the work internally. The love story was sweet too. I read the whole series after this book. I discovered that you don't have to read any of them in any real order and THIS book gives the BEST and most detailed story of where the vampires come from, etc. If you ...more

I did enjoy this book as much as any in the series, but there were a few criticisms of areas that I thought could have been stronger. While the hero and heroine actually do a better job than other couples getting from like and lust to love, I felt there should have been more of a physical draw (a common issue with Sands' writing), even with the constant interruptions of the search for Maurgerite. I've begun noticing that Sands has an odd habit of introducing potential sources of conflict and the ...more

still loving this series I love how it's light hearted, funny and romanticce. this one though wasn't my favorite but I still enjjoyed it. However I loved how they still hadn't found Maugerite therefore leaving it open for more books. HOORAHH for that.

L.J.  ~ aka Former Lurker
I really like this series for books that are fun, sexy, and have original plots; however, I found that most of this book was pretty boring. Definitely not the page-turner, read in one sitting books like other books in the series. This felt like a builder book to me--building the background plot for the next book in the series. Also, Thomas didn't seem like the same witty, prankster Thomas from the past books and not just because he found his life-mate. Additionally, this couple lacked chemistry! ...more

Despite picking up this book (#8) in the middle of series, I could still read it as a stand alone book and I enjoyed this novel enough to read more of them. Although Inez had many self confidence issues, her intelligence provided a nice basis. Finding Thomas attracted to her made a nice "beauty is in the eye of the beholder" lesson. The quest to find his mother is still unanswered, leaving a desire to read the next but the romance tied up nicely at the end of this book. Pleasant escape reading t ...more

Like always, Sands writes them light and passionate, and I really like it. It's a great formula because I can just sit down with the book and read and read. They are relaxing.

And this might be my favorite to date. I do not what made it so, perhaps it was Thomas, a nice hottie. Or perhaps it was Inez, a curvy woman who lives for her job. Together they were perfect. As always the passion is sizzling between these too and what is there not to like when Thomas bites her a bit too quickly and finds o

Wow book eight! Vampires really are forever!

When Argeneau matriarch Marguerite goes missing in London while on one of the first cases in her new private detective career, all the responsible Argeneau's are unable to break away to go hunt for her. So it is up to 'young' cousin Thomas, the surfer-talking prankster of the previous books, to step up and show the others that he can be trusted to handle the important search. When the very efficient workaholic V.P of Argenau Enterprises London branch,

This is probably my least favorite of the Argeneau series so far, although Thomas has been a favorite character of mine. This story also had one of the best "mysteries" yet, with the disappearance of Marguerite & it wasn't completely resolved at the end of this book, but I believe her story is next so that's probably why the author couldn't reveal where she's been. I just couldn't get into Thomas' story & it seems he was written completely differently than he had in all the previous book ...more

I am so enjoying these books!

This one featured Thomas Argeneau and Inez Urso. Thomas is the slacker of the family, so when his Aunt Marguerite goes missing while working a case in Europe he jets over there to start looking for her.

Inez is the Vice President of UK operations for Argeneau Enterprises. When her boss Bastien (from Tall, Dark & Hungry) asked her to drop everything to pick up his Cousin Thomas at the airport, she promptly dropped everything and grabbed the nearest Taxi. Sadly -

Another story of the Argeneau family. This time it is Thomas as he goes on a trip to find his missing aunt, Marguerite. Inez, a mortal working for Argeneau Enterprises was called to meet Thomas at the airport and assist him with his investigation, but when Thomas blows past Inez at the airport, her temper gets the best of her and off she goes to give Thomas a piece of her mind.
Thomas proves to be charming and considerate and Inez reconsiders her opinion, until he bites her!
That was one way to

This was the story I couldn't wait for...from the time he showed up at Lissianna's b-day party in his Spiderman pjs, to his tricking Rachel into drinking the Sweet Ecstasy (glad to see he got his comeuppance for that trick) to ignoring his Uncle Lucian in his time of need. Thomas was always a mysterious character in the background and I wanted to see him as a central character in one of Lynsay's books.

This was a great twist on the continually running lifemate plot, and I particularly enjoyed see
