Do you enjoy humor with your hot vamp heroes? If so, you should give Lynsay Sands vamp series a try. Her latest in this series is "The Rogue Hunter" and stars yet another brooding, sexy vampire who finds his mate.

Samantha is a hard-charging young lawyer, burning her way up the ladder, trying to make partner at her prestigious law firm. When her sisters finally guilt her into taking their annual lake vacation, she gives in only to get sucked up into the disappearance of the spoiled daughter of on

Recommends it for: Those looking for a light read with vampires.
Shelves: 2010-reads

One thing you can always expect from Lynsay Sands is a funny and easy read, with just the right amount of romance. This is the first book of the Rogue Hunter series, I expected it to be a lot darker and intense but it has the same tone as the Argeneau series, not like that is a bad thing, I wanted more Rogue vampires and I got nada.

Sam and her sisters are on vacation at the family cottage for two weeks, it’s a great way to catch up and just hang out. Sam has a bit
The Rogue Hunter By Lynsay Sands is the 10th novel of the Argeneau series and The first in the Rogue Hunter series. If you've read my past reviews of Lynsay Sands, you'd know I really enjoy her books. They are a light read, with both action, horror and lots of great romance. I enjoyed this one, but not as much as the others.. I found it lacking something, but I couldn't quite put my finger on what.
I guess it bothered me that there was so much talk of threats, but nothing really happened? Not th

The 10th book in the Argeneau series (which you don't need to read in order) takes a sidestep from the Argeneau family to centre on Mortimer, an enforcer for the Council, who's up in Cottage Country (Muskoka) with his partner Bricker, staying at Decker's cottage while they hunt for a possible rogue vampire in the area.

Decker's neighbours are three sisters enjoying a two-week vacation: Alex, a chef, Sam, a lawyer, and Jo, a uni student. When Mortimer realises that Sam is his life mate, he's disap

Something a Bit Different!


Hot on the heels of her series featuring the Argeneaus, "New York Times"-bestselling author Sands begins a new series focusing on the Rogue Hunters--immortals associated with the Argeneaus who work for The Council and hunt vampires who have broken their laws

My Thoughts:

My first thought is that the blurb is terrible and needs to be rewritten as it does not sell the book at all. My second thought is : this is soooo cool I know all the geography in this story e
Not my favorite. I love the humor in the writing - but the story fell a little flat for me. You know how you are reading along and you think Oh! I bet this guy with the party cabin is the bad guy! but then it turns out he was just a neighbor and not really of any interest? Yeah. Like that. I feel like I spent half the book guessing that things that seemed very important WERE important - only to have them never mentioned again.

The sex scenes didn't trip my trigger in this one either. Maybe I am

A short cute read but it was too anticlimax

Fun to see a lawyer heroine and when she made the comment that kissing is not allowed in Malaysia , she's partially right.

Couples are not allowed to show public affections like kissing and HAND HOLDING or risked getting arrested.

Furthermore under the Penal Code oral sex is categorized under UNNATURAL SEX together with beastiality. Yep Malaysia is SUCH a fun country.

Did you know Ultraman comic in Malay language is banned because Allah means God and non-
I actually probably would have given this book 3.5 stars, if it were an option. I thought the book was an easy read, well written and entertaining but left me feeling kind of... blah. The ending was very anticlimactic and I was disappointed with how she left the main characters in the book. Suffice it to say, this was most definitly not one of my favorite Lynsay Sands books.
More like 3.5 for this one. I liked it but not one of my top favs for this series. Also a little disappointing coming off of Marguerite's book (Vampire Interrupted) which was just amazing!

Enforcer and Career Girl get Mated

The Rogue Hunter by Lynsay Sands is full of romance and suspense with her trademark mayhem and humour. In it, an immortal, whilst on a mission to protect the world from rogue vampires unexpectedly finds his life mate, a human who is a committed career woman. The book is number 10 in the author’s Argeneau Vampire series.

Lynsay Sands portrays vampires as Atlanteans, who need blood to allow the nanos developed by their scientists to heal them and maintain their imm

Samantha (Book Lover's Cozy Cafe)
As ever I just love the Argeneau Series, with it's humor, sexy men, quit witted women and some kind of disaster in each book, it makes each story a great read. Along with the ties to the previous characters. Each book has it's own story, that is basically the same ending for the most part, but each couple has their own story. Their own reasons for why they are meant to be. I always catch myself smiling or busting up out loud while I read one of these books, it never fails to amuse me.

The Rogue Hunter is only the second Lynsay Sands novel I've read and after enjoying the first (Love Bites) I was a little disappointed with this one.

Granted it's been a while since I've read Love Bites but Sands' writing style seems competely different in The Rogue Hunter; not as straight forward and almost completely devoid of any humour (though I fear it wasn't for lack of trying). I will pay her the scene where Mortimer reveals his secret to Sam however, that was entertaining.

Just a few probl
The Argeneau series is probably my favorite of the vampire romance books. Unfortunately, this most recent in the series was a disappointment. I was glad to get it finished just so I could move on to a more interesting read. There really wasn't much to the storyline and the mystery that's always woven through Lynsay Sands' books was pretty much non-existent. However, I'm still looking forward to the next installment and hoping it will be representative of the previous Argeneau books.
Tori Macallister
I'm tempted to try one of the author's historical romances to see if the couple seems as passionless as her paranormal couples. Yes, they are attracted to each other, but that attraction appears to easily take a back seat to whatever mystery is on hand. It makes the well-written love scenes less believable since two people that intensely drawn to each other should have a middle ground of attraction, with small touches and an intense interest in one another's appearance. It's a biological fact (s ...more

I liked the humor in this book. When Bricker said "Morty & the muppets" I about died laughing. The sexual tension betweeen Sam and Mortimer was crazy. It was annoying that they kep getting interrupted, and I found myself starting to skim the book in places. But the story was cute and had a nice ending. I'm going to give the second book a try.
A favorite of mine!!!!!!!!! i thought it was funny how mortimer was not even attracted to his life mate at first look and love that there in other books in the series like hungry for you,and the renaged hunter!!!! which are two books i love toooooooo!!

This is an interesting story that pulls the reader in. One, it doesn't directly involve any of the original cast of characters and family and yet still has that connection to the original storyline.

Mortimer has been alive for 800 years and in that time has come to imagine his ideal life mate as a type of Jessica Rabbit individual... not this flat, clumsy lawyer that he find he can't read. He's supposed to be hunting down a possible rogue, not finding a less than ideal life mate. But as he gets

This is another book in Argeneau (Argeneau # 10) series and I have read all of them so far.

I have enjoyed reading this book, but for some reason I did not like Sam very much. I liked the fact that she was a strong, independent and no nonsense female character. But for some reason I just could not get to like her, I do not know what it was. I have been reading this book on and off for some time, it’s not that the book is bad on the contrary, I love Lynsay Sands books. But for some reason, Sam’s

I'm adding this to my read shelf because there is no "couldn't bear to keep reading it" or "ditched it" option that Goodreads offers. I disliked this book for two reasons. First of all, the main female character is a lawyer,supposedly. And there are constant, constant references to this. Her sisters keep referencing it, and saying that she is such a lawyer, and she does this and that because she's a lawyer, etc.. She is constantly thinking, even when not thinking about her job, in terms of her b ...more

Title: The Rogue Hunter
Series: Argeneau #10
Author: Lynsay Sands
Rating: 4/5

“Bare," came her answer in a squeak.
"Yes, we'd both have to be bare," he said with a laugh.
"Not bare naked," she gasped. "Bear bear. Furry bear. Bear!"

Once again a great, easy to read romance. One thing I was dissapouinted in was the lack of rogues. With this being the first of the Rogue Hunter series I guess I was just expecting to come across more rogue vampires than we did. However other than that
Review: The Rogue Hunter by Lynsay Sands brings us a new perspective to the immortals and vampires we’ve come to know in the Argeneau series. Garrett Mortimer is an immortal and belongs to a group of hunters set up by the Council to hunt down the rogue vampires that prey on the humans. His latest assignment brings him to a small lakeside community where his next-door neighbor creates hungers and passions known only between lifemates. His job as rogue hunter has gotten more challenging now that h ...more
This book deviated from the Argeneau family, featuring an unrelated immortal as the hero. Garrett Mortimer hunts rogue immortals for the Council, along with his partners, Bricker and Decker. They are sent to "cottage country" to look for a rogue vamp, as several humans have been spotted in the area with bite marks on their necks.

Samantha Willan and her two sisters are vacationing in a neighboring cottage. Sam is the usual Sands' heroine, plucky and sassy and strong, though a recent breakup with
I'm reminded of the Greek father on "My Big, Fat Greek Wedding" who complained that his daughter's fiance was "dry.... like toast." This book was about as thrilling as dry toast. I felt little for the characters of Sam and Mortimer - I didn't see the emotional connection between and emote to why they finally got along, particularly when Mortimer is initially so appalled by the clumsly, accident-prone Olive Oyl traits of Sam.

Beyond that, I still have a hard time with this vampire series. The who
At First Sight: Vacation with her sisters in Cottage Country sounded like a really good idea to Sam Willan, a workaholic lawyer in the fast track to be made partner. She recently went through a bad break up and is quite happy to just relax with her sisters Alex and Jo, until they finally get to meet their elusive next-door neighbor and his friends.

They all seem rather nice, and all three men are certainly very handsome, but it's Garrett Mortimer who catches her attention, at first because she c
