In over 700 years of existence, Marguerite Argeneau has never held a job.

Book 9 in Ms. Sands Argeneau Vampire series.

This is one of Lynsay Sands best books in the Argeneau series. We finally get to read Marguerite’s story…her whole story that is. On her new career, training to be a PI with Tiny (contracted by Christian Notte to find his long-lost mother), she meets her lifemate Julius Notte (Christian’s father). Someone is trying to kill Marguerite, someone doesn’t want Marguerite and Tiny to succeed, and Julius won’t leave her side to be butchered, literally, by so
The Flooze

The Argeneau series was an integral part of my introduction to PNR. I was delighted to find a group of romance novels that balanced love and lust against hilarity and mayhem. The relationships felt ridiculous yet never unlikely, as Sands made sure to craft compatible leads who were always on equal footing. The romance aspect didn't rely on flowery language, but rather a healthy desire to find someone to be happy with, to love and be loved by. Though the "vampire" conceit she utilizes does h

Much better book, best of the series so far...Marguerite Rocks!


After 700 years of life, Marguerite Argeneau finally starts a career. She's training to be a private investigator, and her first assignment is to find an immortal's mother. It seems simple enough, until Marguerite wakes up one evening to find herself at the wrong end of a sword. Now she realizes she's in way over her head.

My Thoughts,

The story runs parallel to Thomas's story for the most part. This book to me is the mos

Am I the only one who felt uncomfortable about Marguerites book? I mean, she's like.. the mother. Also, this book was rather dissappointing. I didn't understand why Marguerite and Julius were.. Well, whatever. What I really, really didn't like was the family part.

You'd think Marguerite would behave differently, but she doesn't. The end of the book seems too convinient for my tastes, but they always do. 'They' meaning the Argeneau novels.

Whatever, Tiny was there and I like Tiny. *dances the Tiny
Julie (jjmachshev)
If you've been waiting for Marguerite's story, this is it. It certainly cleared up some questions I've had about this character. Why did she marry Jean Claude in the first place? Why did she stay with him so long?

If you haven't been following this series, you may not enjoy this book as much as I did. The series begins with Single White Vampire. If you like Sookie Stackhouse and Queen Betsy, then don't miss this series...

Vampire, Interrupted by Lynsay Sands is a fantasy book about a few vampires, secrets, and action. She wrote this book to say don’t judge and persecute someone without all the facts. Just go with your heart and mind, don’t go on rumors and hatred. GET THE FACTS STRAIGHT FIRST. That is what I think Lynsay’s goal in trying to teach from the book. If Julius just trusted Marguerite’s dictions they would not be in most of the messes they were in. If Marguerite trusted Julius’s judgment or reasons so m ...more
Fantastic! This might be my favorite book in the Argenau novel's!

This book centers around family matriarch Marguerite Argeneau. She is currently working as a P.I trying to help Christian Notte discover his long lost mother. His father, Julius, refuses to tell him his mother's name and every P.I he has ever hired, is scared off by Julius.

Marguerite is determined to help Christian, and then she is attacked in her hotel room and almost beheaded. Christian's father shows up and ends up revealing tha

A la Mierdaaaaa Literalmente, La trama de este libro me dejo totalmente sorprendida jamas me espere esto, al principio cuando termine de leer el Libro de Thomas pensé que tal ves debería saltarme este libro e ir directamente al otro! Gracias a dios no lo hice Lynsay Sands se supero con este, También llore un poco...Julius es espectacular (Estúpidos y Sensuales Vampiros Italianos) Cuando estuvieron Juntos Juntitos en casa de El ufff fue espectacular, era tan hermoso todos los miles de años que el ...more
Review: ‘Vampire, Interrupted’ is a dazzling novel that will provide hours of entertainment with the anxiously awaited story of Marguerite Argeneau. Learning to be a private investigator, Marguerite is excited when her first case brings her to England with the task of finding an immortals mother. After someone attempts to behead her while sleeping, she realizes there is more to this case than just finding a missing immortal. Julius Notte wants to protect Marguerite and keep the secrets that he’s ...more

The most heavily plotted and mysterious of all the Argeneau books, Vampire, Interrupted (a very apt title) reveals what happened to Margeurite when Thomas and Inez were trying to find her in Vampires Are Forever, and many skeletons come out of the closet in the process. I don't want to give anything away, but sadly the family tree that the books include at the beginning does. You might want to avoid looking at it until, say, halfway through, or the surprise is ruined (though you can probably fig ...more

Such a tragic love story! Marguerite's story is one with many twists and turns.

Marguerite is investigating the birth of Christopher Notte and trying to find his mother for him. She meets Julius Notte and is instantly attracted. They are lifemates. Lifemates that were separated many years ago by a jealous evil person who pretended to be a loving member of their family.

Marguerite's memory of Julius and their life together is completely wiped. Julius joins his son Christopher and Marguerite on the

First: Skip the family tree at the beginning! It contains a spoiler!!!!

Although a fun read, with a lot more mystery and not so much romance, this one is my least favorite so far. It was slow in places, and the lead characters were frustratingly immature at times, despite having several lifetimes of experience. The mystery was kind of compacted into the last 50 pages, complete with a bad guy speech about the hows and whys of the evil plan.

Lynsay Sands isn't a bad writer (A+ for the sexy parts!) b
This was another great book in this series. I loved the characters and the personalities. I had laughs, snickers, breath-holding, tension and suspense, some tough spots and some humorous. I really liked getting to know these characters and meeting a few newer ones. There was plenty of suspense and some definitely shockers. I was reading this so fast I was getting cross-eyed. I was drawn in straight from the start and couldn't stop. First it was finger-gripping, then funny, then....What!!!...some ...more

The beginning took me a little while to get into. In the middle of a chapter somewhere past 1/4th of the book, there was a mention of Margarite is Christopher's mother. I was stunned. Why there and then? The story goes on of trying to find Christopher's mom, then finally the news it is Margarite becomes the focal point. And, is Jean Claude really dead? Who would've taken her memories?

The last 40% of the book was great. I had a difficult time putting the book down. I suspected one perso
Finally the match maker in the Argeneau clan finds her lifemate.....again!!!

This was a cute story about the Argeneau family matriarch, Marguerite, discovering what all her other family members have been enjoying.....her very own lifemate, Julius Notte!!

She finds she has a five hundred year old son, Christian and with all the other twists and turns in this lovely tale, Marguerite finds a love of her own, in Julius!!

There is the usual hot steamy love scenes and even some exciting bites....

This really was an excellent book in this series, containing a twist that I did not see coming regarding the identity of Christian's mother. Two points made me wonder about the editing of this book - first, that anyone would think that the family tree in the front of the book was a great idea since it gives away the surprise and second, that Julius tells Marguerite about his rock loving musician son in London while attempting to get her to relax around him...and then tells her again when they ar ...more

Genre: Paranormal romance
This was a fun little paranormal romance, with lots of sex, mystery and suspense. The characters were close to fully fleshed out, and the plot was intricate without being confusing. This story is taking place at the same time as the book preceding. Marguerite Argeneau is on her first case as a trainee private detective with her trainer Tiny. Christopher Notte hired the pair to find out about his mother because his father won't te
Marguerite Argeneau will nach 700jähriger Ehehölle mit Jean Claude endlich ihre Freiheit genießen. Kein Mann soll mehr die Macht haben, sie zu manipulieren und quälen. Nachdem sie ihre Kinder erfolgreich verkuppelt hat, sucht sie nun nach einer neuen Herausforderung und versucht sich als Privatdetektivin. Zusammen mit Tiny, den wir schon aus "Vampire haben's auch nicht leicht" kennen, macht sie sich an ihren ersten Fall: Sie wird von Christian Notte beauftragt herauszufinden, wer seine Mutter is ...more
DAMN that was good!

Alot of questions answered. Satisfying relationships. And just enough room to set up future books. I feel like this book finished an arch and set up a new one.

When I finished this book I thought I think this was my favorite book in the series!

Good. Book.
Felicity Heaton
Would have given this four stars but the editing/writing was so bad in places that I couldn't reward it. Wrong words, bad grammar, missing punctuation, repetition - it had all the sins. Ruined it for me.
Laura Evans
Probablemente el mejor de la saga hasta ahora.
A pesar de amar el resto, tengo que decir que este libro me ha pillado por sorpresa. Mi intención era leer unas paginas para luego seguir, sin embargo, me lo acabe en una sentada.
Esta es la historia de Marguerite Argeneau, que se adentra como investigadora amateur en la búsqueda de la madre de Christian Notte con la ayuda de Tiny, el antiguo compañero de Jackie. Sin embargo, cuando Julius Notte, el padre de Christian, aparece en escena, Marguerite q
OMG!!!!!!! This was the most interesting book with a kick ass story line by lynsay sands , you really learn alot in this story about other characters in the whole series really!!!!!!!I LOVED IT!!

The past 2 books in the Argeneau series have led up this one, so I was looking forward to reading it. It was worth the wait and I really liked it. I enjoyed learning Marguerite's history.
Heather Moore
Other than the A Quick Bite, this is the best one in the series so far! Everybody loves Margurite and if you don't than something's wrong with you. LOL

I wanted to read Marguerite's book ever since I met her. After 700 years of misery she deserved to find her life-mate and have her HEA. And now I finally got to see her find it and it was fun.

What Sands does best is making the books light, all while making them exciting and passionate. In this one Marguerite is trying to find a woman and someone does not want that do happen. Even as someone is trying to kill her there is still that lightness over the book and I like that. I also like that the bo
I was happily surprised by this book, especially since it involved the romance between a much older couple (Hello!!! Marguerite had 4 kids before this story began). However, of all the Argeneau stories, I really liked this story the most. Not simply because just it was a supernatural romance but because of the mystery involved in this story. Lynsay Sands' Argeneau series usually included stories involving one vampire who finds his or her lifemate in a human, they fall in love and the lifemate is ...more

Once again another amazing book by Lindsay sands. Her books are always funny, sexy and full of romance. The book was sexy and full of passion from start to finish. I thought this book would be like the rest, hunting down a rogue, but this book shocked me with a twist – Marguerite being the missing mum - having another life but not remembering. Finding out Marguerite had another life – meeting her lifemate and having a child made the book more griping. What’s surprising is Julius, her true lifema ...more
Lady Allison
First warning to those who intend on reading the book: I know it helps keep all the Argeneaus straight, but for the sake of mystery, skip the family tree in the front of the book this time around! Just trust me.

In Vampire, Interrupted Lynsay Sands changes her normal scheme up a bit & comes up with what I think is by far the best book in the Argeneau series so far. Normally her books involve one Argeneau or another finding their lifemate in some way or another, getting to know & falling i

“Okay," Christian said with a great show at maintaining his patience. "So you can't dance. But you could at least talk to the woman."
Julius frowned and avoided his gaze. "I am talking."
"You aren't," Christian insisted. "You haven't said more than a handful of words."
Scowling, he admitted, "I'm practicing in my head."
Christian blinked at this. "Practicing?"
"Well, you don't just blurt out the first thing that comes to mind," Julius said with exasperation. "I have to approach this carefully, so I'm practicing."
"In your head?" Christian clarified.
"Yes." Julius nodded. "In my head."
"Right....Good, good," he nodded, and then said "but you know what would be even better?"
Julius raised his eyebrows with interest. "What?"
"Talking to her OUT LOUD!" Christian snapped. "Jesus Christ, Father, you're as old as the earth. You run a huge corporation, dealing with people-even women-day in day out. Surely you can string a couple of words together and manage a little conversation with the woman?”
“Okay, why don't we practice your talking with Marguerite? OUT LOUD. I'll be her."

Julius stared at him blankly. "Now?"

"No, I was thinking maybe next April. Then you could maybe give her a call, arrange a date..."
He arched his eyebrow in question, and snapped, "Yes, NOW.”
