Immortal Ever After is the 18th book in Lynsay Sands’ insanely popular Argeneau series, and a fun, exciting, sexy story! I’ve read more than my fair share of the paranormal romance genre, most especially vampires. I don’t know what it is, but there’s something about these tormented souls that draw me in and keep me coming back for more. It’s not often that I fall in love during my first read of a series, but I fell - and fell hard - for the Argeneau world.
From the cover:

Another great addition to the Argeneau series. Read this one in less than 24 hours, it just grabbed me from page one. It seems like the books in this series are either very light hearted and almost silly in the angst that the characters get into or they are darker and more serious and meaty while still being such fun to read. Immortal Ever After is definitely one of the more serious additions to this long running series. I love the way that this author weaves humor, strong alpha males and stubbo ...more

The anticipation of reading this book for me was almost overwhelming! For those of you who read the Argeneau series, you know the character Marguerite. Well… I am a Marguerite groupie! What is that? You ask? Well, this woman thinks it is her sole duty to see all of the people she comes in contact with in any slight way to be matched with their Life Mates, those who they will spend eternity with… blissfully!

This book was about Anders (one I love), an Enforcer for the Immortals, ensuring that the

Solid 4 stars! It's an Argeneau novel after all. : )

IMMORTAL EVER AFTER, an Argeneau novel by Lynsay Sands is, as always expected from Lynsay, a delightful read, threaded with humor, danger, and of course, plenty of steamy seduction on the part of Anders, but I was surprised and excited about how singular and independent Valerie Moyer was in every situation. She's a heroine to admire. She's not afraid to take matters into her own hands whether it is escaping from a rogue immortal or seducing And

I enjoyed this book as I have all the Argeneau books. It has the same quirky sense of humor and several characters from previous books make an appearance adding to the feeling of "a visit home".

In life I would probably like Valerie and Anders very much. They are loyal, intelligent, and have a good solid dose of common sense that is admirable. Valerie is a strong heroine, saving herself several times which is a nice change of pace.

My problem with the book was the two protagonists weren't all tha

I forgot how good this series is.

I have been dying to read Ander's story. And just like the man. Quiet and calm he claims his life mate.
Awesome!

First of all, the cover. Is this man hugging some sort of architectural element? Not a winner.

I liked this book. It seemed to be a return somewhat to the earlier feel of the series. I have a tendency to like stories about the older vampires. The heroine was very nice. She was plucky and very resourceful and it seemed natural that she would respond well to the idea of vampires/immortals given how she was written. I thought Anders was well written and sweet. I liked the scenes from his POV where h

I am a stalker when it comes to the Argeneau series, so when I saw this as an ARC in edelweiss I requested it without any idea of who the main characters were or what the plot was!!

This started out very very dark, honestly it was a bit scary. It did not start out as a Lynsay Sand's typical lighthearted Argeneau book. Someone was kidnapping women, drugging them and keeping them prisoner in a small cage. What was scary was that the guard wou

This was so bad...
--lame Scooby Gang of vampires...oh, sorry..."immortals". Same damn thing, just call them what they are for godsakes. Stop trying to be original, cuz you're not!
-tedious, uninteresting, one dimensional characters I couldn't give a feck about.
-boring villain and suspense subplot that pretty much gets swept under the rug.
-monotonous sexy times
-Way too many TMI moments-I don't need to hear about leg shaving, going to the bathroom, doggy poo bags, etc. And if I had to read

And again a Rogue Hunter finds his life mate...

I just love the Argeneau series by Lynsay Sands. And one more time she didn't disappoint. Though it's not my favorite episode.

I couldn't connect with Anders but that's just a question of personal taste and has nothing to do with the writing or the story.

For me these books are like

The book features our hero Anders and our heroine Valerie. It starts off with Valerie being kidnapped and held hostage with 6 other young women. Each are kept drugged and in cages and are brought out for dinner one night a week. The women can't see each other due to being kept in a dark basement but find talking to each other helps sooth some of the horror. All the women believe that the guy and his helper (dubbed Igor) are crazy, that he's living some weird Vampire fantasy. Eventually Valerie r ...more

Like many long running series, you go into them knowing what to expect, that is what this series is for me. They are filled with light, fluffy, fun.

I loved Valerie, loved that she didn't wait around for someone to save her, but went about saving herself. I really liked that Anders knew she was his life mate, which helped set up things for later. For some reason I found all the action in Leigh and Lucian's house to be funny, mostly because the action wasn't action per se, but the normal everyday

I liked this book well enough. As with the others in this series, it's a light, fun read. However, sloppy writing and dumb decisions by a secondary female caused me to get pulled out of the story a few times while reading it. The sloppy writing I'm referring to mostly happened at the beginning of the book, where the heroine would say something about herself (ex, she took martial arts lessons) to the hero, and then the information would be repeated to the hero a few pages later, and he would act ...more

Well... erm... it's not bad... I've read much worse... and the steamy parts are awesome... but the mid-beginning bothers me.

It starts out really good with some intense-suspense scenes, but after those scenes end, there's no weening phase or quiver. Yes, she brings the suspenseful scenes back as "knowledge" that it had happened, but there's no haunting memory, no unsureness, quivering of returning to normal life. In fact, she dumps the story right into a friendly relationship as if the character

Anders has been an Enforcer for many years and has watched his fellow Enforcers fall victim to life mates one by one. When an unusual 911 call comes in that the Enforcers respond to, Anders is amazed to find he has discovered his life mate.

Valerie has literally just escaped from the house of Hell. She had been kidnapped and held in a cage with several other women for almost 2 weeks. She managed to stab one of her captors and call 911. When she is talking to her rescuers she doesn't know how to e

No es un secreto que mucha gente que me conoce sabe que amo esta saga desde que lei el primer libro hace unos años. Este libro no es diferente, me capturo desde la primera frase que lei, a pesar de que reconozco que me he saltado un par de libros de la saga porque no terminaban de atraerme, este es igual de maravilloso que todos los demas que he leido.

This book is #18 in the series and I haven't read any of the 17 prior. In PNR and especially in long running series like this, I know I can often pick up a book and not be lost at all. This was the case with this book. However, I have to say this will not be my last book in this series and I do want to go back to #1 and read about what romances I did miss.

I do have to say that although that most of the book wasn't new, it was still fun. What was a bit different was Valerie. Often the girl is in

3.5 stars I liked it - I had read the sample of this - which I had thought was really promising - and then saw the lukewarm response by other readers to the story, so I delayed buying it until the price fell to a 'worth-a-shot' price. I have to say that I actually enjoyed the story quite a bit.

I liked the leading lady Valerie a lot and I liked that while she's a damsel and she's in distress, she doesn't wait around for her knight and instead comes to her own rescue time and again. The story her

Nothing like reading your first book in a series at No. 18. Not that I haven’t wanted to read this series. I mean, it’s Lynsay Sands. I’ve wanted to read her vampires for a long time now. So when I wanted to read a Sands book recently, this is the one I had access to, so this is the one I read. While I’d love to have started at the beginning for the full impact of the series – especially these nano-produced immortals – I still loved every word of this story with Anders and Valerie.

5 Stars

Another fabulous installment of the Argeneau series by Lynsay Sands. The highly anticipated story of Anders … and what a story it was.

Ms. Sands starts this book off a little darker than the rest of the series. A Rogue Vampire has kidnapped several females and is using them as his life blood. Valerie Moyer is one of those girls and she has figured a few things out: 1. They are all being drugged. 2. Her kidnapper has a “vampire complex”

Since the fifth installment of the Argeneau series I've really found the books to be hit or miss. Unfortunately, Immortal Ever After was a miss for me. With a strong start I was excited to delve deeper, but by the 25% mark I was down-right bored :(

The heroine was great to read. Strong, smart, and witty Valerie held all of the characteristics that I love in a feature female. But the hero...... Oh, Anders how I was disappointed in you. He was dull to the point of being robotic. I actually started

I absolutely loved this book. Once I started it I didn't want to put it down. There were different reasons for me liking so many of the characters I could bore you with the details but I won't. They each just seem to care about each other the way that real family and friends do. They play and joke, they get frustrated and irrational. Reading it just felt like being home but with way more exciting and sexier people.
I liked how the story was written and paced. The characters from previous books c

My Synopsis:
Kidnapped with her life and the lives of six other woman in jeopardy, she waited for her chance. When it was finally her turn she pretended to be drugged, which she would have been, if she had eaten the food. She searched for a weapon or some means of escape as he dragged her through the house, and when the opportunity presented itself, she took it. She ironically staked the large man she and the other captives referred to as Igor. He wasn't her only concern, however. She knew he was

Finally! I’ve been waiting to see what kind of woman that Anders would fall for. I bet he was a challenge for the author because he was such a quiet guy with a huge deep and dark attitude. Not only does he get his well-earned happily ever after but readers get to find out what happened in his young life that made him the man he was at the time of this story. Get ready to have your sympathy strings played by a master. Ms. Sands has pre

Finally. After all this time, Anders gets his turn at love. I've always thought of him as an enigma, but Ms. Sands decided to fill in the blanks of his life, and he's as intriguing as all the others.
Valerie, a veterinarian, is kidnapped and held prisoner along with six other young women so their rogue captor has a fresh meal for every day of the week. When she realizes the food they receive is drugged to keep them compliant, she decides to starve in

Lynsay Sands delivered another solid book with Immortal Ever After. It didn't blow me away, but it did keep me thoroughly entertained all the way to the end. But, all of the books in the Argeneau Series seem to follow the same format:

Dramatic Opening Scene where someone is in danger
Dramatic Rescue
Discovery of possible life mate
Suspense over whether said life mate will accept the news about Immortals
Anxiety while waiting for their decision
Another possible dramatic event
Resolution where they live

I am really disappointed in this book. I really love Lynsay Sands books and I was so looking forward to read and enjoy this book that I waited almost year :(:(


The story began really great but then it just went on without any plot. Only Lucian's mate Leigh made the whole book really funny. There were some scenes that made me laugh but the couple, Anders and Valerie were boring. All they did was kissing, and didn't had a real talk at all. I wish there was some plot in the middle. The ending was re

This is an original review from http://bookedandloaded.com (rating 3.5/5 Bullets)
Immortal Ever After is the 18th book in an Argeneau Novel series. This series is a fun and typically lighthearted read. However, Immortal Ever After was a little more on the serious side. I could not tell if this was just because the characters were more serious in general? Immortal Ever After was a pretty good read, I did feel that the intensity of this book fell a little short. The chemistry was certainly present,

I am a huge fan of the Argeneau series, but I have to admit I was a bit disappointed in this one. It’s not that the story wasn’t enjoyable, because it was. If I had picked up this book without reading the others I would have liked it. The problem is this was a repeat. It was almost the exact plot from Leigh and Dani’s books. There were a few variations but same ideas. And really it was the same sequence of events. Girl gets kidnapped by rogue, rescuer discovers he’s lifemate, they fall in love w

“Can I see your fangs again? Valerie asked

Er.... Justin said, then spotted Anders and smiled with relief. Anders, buddy. Show your woman your fangs.

Shy, Bricker? You? Anders asked dryly, moving forward again as Valerie glanced around to smile at him.

Nah. I just don't want to show you up by letting her see how much bigger my fangs are than yours, Justin responded.

Actually, I saw Ander's fangs at his house this afternoon and they're bigger than yours, Valerie said at once and then as Anders reached her side , she glanced at him and asked, Why? Is it like big fangs, big feet, big -?”
