Once Bitten...

This story centres on Lucian, the twin brother of Jean-Claude, Marguerite's deceased husband (making Lucian the uncle of Lucern etc.). He's one of the "original" immortals, and has lived for over two thousand years. He's on the Council and hunts down rogue vampires. It's while he's on the hunt for another ancient vampire, Morgan, who has started his own "nest", that he encounters Leigh. Morgan has just turned her but she hasn't yet gone through the painful process when Lucian grudgingly rescues ...more
Another consistent entry in the series, an enjoyable vampire romance with lots of humor and good characters. All of her books in this series seem the same, following a proven formula.

If you've read through the first 5 books of this Series then you know that Lucian is.. well.. a grump to say the least. He is one of the oldest immortals and he is hanging on by a thread from turning Rogue like so many before him.

Lucian is out hunting, hunting rogue vampires that is, when Leigh is thrown into his lap. Leigh is a bar owner who just happens to be in the wrong place, at the wrong time and has hired the wrong type of employees.

The combination of the two is just incredibly funny. L
When you read the books in this series, there are no great surprises, but they do offer and light hearted pnr story. In this story Lucian Argeneau meets his match in a bar owner from Kansas. The whole family gets involved to get him his HEA. Except Marguerite who is surprising absent, but in her one cameo does manage to try to play matchmaker over the phone... she just can't help herself. There was no follow up with Vincent and Jackie, but maybe in the next one. And Bastien and Terri are still p ...more

This book and I are not getting off to a very good start. I am increasingly more and more angry the further I'm getting into this series. Some of the awkward moments are a little funny, but there isn't much differentiation between the couples. The main scheme is just so recycled between many paranormal romance series.

No joke - I read the first two chapters to get a feel for who the characters were and what the story was, then flipped to the end and read the last 5 or 6 chapters to get the resolution. I read nothing in between, and didn't feel like I'd missed a thing.

These books are really fluffy and predictable. If you like your books a little lighter and more on the fun/funny side (think chick-lit with vampires), then these books are for you. But I prefer something a little darker, with a bit more substance

Irealy enjoyed this book!!!! it was funny and Lucian became my favorite male character..... he is so protective of his family and you'll find out why... Since he is an older vamp he is able to block his thoughts but when he meets his lifemate he lets loose and the family attacks his thougths TOO FUNNY... I WOULD READY THIS AGAIN
The best of the series by far!

Lucian was not the vamp that Sands leads you to believe he is in the beginning of the series. This book is a little more serious then the rest of them. I liked it more for that reason, so apparently I don't like campy vamp books....

My thoughts:

Another good and light Argeneau vampire novel. I truly like that about this series. And once again, this one can easily be read as a standalone novel. I have only read 3 out of 6, but it works. There is a new couple in each, and the whole vampire thing is explained to the newbies. Trust me on this.

In this one a woman, Leigh is out walking and gets attacked. Luckily for her Lucian comes to the rescue as he is hunting down her attacker. Since she is bitten he explains things to her *co

I've read the entire Argeneau series but this is the first one I read and my favorite. I'm not real fond of vampire stories usually but the vampires here are not the undead kind so okay.

Another reason I went ahead and read it the first time is that it starts out in the Kansas City area where I live. Even though the KC geography is pretty wonky and full of mistakes it still gives me an affection for the book. For example if you just say Kansas City then you mean Kansas City, Missouri not Kansas

Leigh is walking home after closing down her bar when she is approached by a friend who she thought was missing. Unfortunately, he is not alone and brings his vampire sire with him. Donny's big plan is for Leigh to be turned by his sire so that the two of them can be together forever. Thankfully for Leigh, Lucian, one of the oldest vampires has been hunting down Morgan on behalf of the vampire council. He and his crew manage to save Leigh but Morgan escapes.

Lucian has always been the grumpy old
While this book was not my favorite book of the series I found that if you can manage to make it past about 10 or 15% of the book it does quickly redeem itself. I did love seeing the uber strict and straight as an arrow, Immortal Enforcer Lucian, get his comeuppance when he meets his second life mate and he has to help her while she makes the change.

It was a good story but as I said the first part was a bit boring in that it was all about Leighs change and how it affected Lucian.

I was really looking forward to read the story of Lucian Argeneau and how he found his lifemate but I admit – I was a bit disappointed. Lucian is very old, arrogant and the protection of his people has always priority in his life. So first I wasn´t really impressed, even a bit annoyed with his description (wearing an apron, cleaning and scrubbing the floor – sorry not MY imagination of a council enforcer). Leigh, his love interest was turned against her will and because Lucian and his team rescu ...more

This was the Argeneau book I was waiting for! Lucian is my absolute favorite of the Argeneau family. Certainly there is a level of trepidation going into a book when it's centered on your favorite character. Questions like, will the author do it justice, will I love it, what if I hate it, run through your mind before you read it. Well this book taught me very quickly to shut my mind up and trust in Lynsay Sands because damn can she write. She gives Lucian the precisely the partner his character ...more
I really thought this would be a great one because I was looking forward to Lucian's tale in this one. Ms. Sands has created a fabulous world that I enjoy but this book was just too simple. I didn't enjoy how the female character gets turned. I didn't enjoy how both had been married before and she had been abused. I just felt like she didn't execute what she set out to do in this book. I thought she would further develop these characters. I did enjoy how she brought some of the characters from p ...more

Lucian Argeneau, a hunter has been after the vampire rogue has just captured another victim. Lucian offers protection and training for Leigh, as long as he can unload her on someone else. Over two thousand years old, Lucian has no zest for the life he has given, instead he often makes life difficult for others. When Lucian discovers that Leigh is his lifemate he is thrown off ...more
A super great read. I loved the characters and the dialog in this book. There was plenty to shock, laugh at, hold your breath, snicker, and sigh. Another great Argeneau book that draws you in and doesn't let go. I definitely lost track of time and was reading until the first rays of dawn and ready for more when it ended. This had plenty of humor, some suspense, strength, courage, great scenes and personalities, and a good HEA. I really enjoyed reading this and the situations that Lucian (of all ...more
I think this might have been my first Romance Vampire book that I read and I am absolutely hooked! I think it is total brain candy and doesn't really have any substance but it is nice to just sit down and forget about real world problems for just a few moments and read and by doing so getting lost in a wonderful world of vampires etc.

I actually liked both the characters (but the girls name really bugged me and I still can't figure out why). I really like though that they didn't jump into bed ri

This was a cruel disappointment. Bite Me If You Can, a paranormal romantic comedy, started off so promisingly. I thought, aha! At last, a vampire romance novel I can sink my teeth into (I’M SORRY IT HAD TO BE SAID.) Now, I thought to myself, I can be one of the cool kids. Now, I’ll get it.

Well. As I said, things began awfully well. It was funny. It was devoid of the whole murderer-hero problem. There were amusing supporting characters. And then…nothing. Nothing happened. They went shopping (now,

I really enjoy this series. The books usually start off fast. They are usually a light-hearted, fun romp in the hay. For me, this books started off VERY slow and it seemed to vary a lot from her usual formula. IMO, it was if she wanted to start embracing a darker style of writing. Regardless, after I suffered through the first half of the book, if finally took a turn a returned to the regular style for this series and I loved it. I like dark style PNR or UF, but I didn't like it in this series. ...more

Currently taking a break from historical nobility romance, I've been reading the Argeneau series out of order and this one was #4 for me after Victor's story.

Really enjoyed it, as long as you don't take it too seriously. The story and the obstacles were actually typical. Possible second chance for a widower after a very very very very very long time. The insecurities included in it, the loving and hilarious family intervention, renewal and changing of perception as love comes to bite Lucian.

I actually think this is my favorite of the series so far, maybe because I started out pretty sure I was not going to like this installment of the Argeneau series. Lucian was such a distastful character in the very beginning of the book, and Leigh was a little too sweet to be true. But Sands quickly reveals why Lucian seems so cold and aloof, and Leigh displays backbone and determination along with her kindness and understanding. A great was to pass the time.

Yes,yes I know it's one of 'those' books but it was really good and it really was good at keeping me waiting nervously and anxiously,I could almost feel what the characters had felt except for at 'those' points....I'm not one for 'that' genre but it was a vampire book and it was really good.My friend Jen recommended it too me so I think you may enjoy it as well.
I really like reading about the misunderstood guys or characters.
It was funny and sad at the same time. The books!! LOL!
Luckily, Lucian didn't need them and I felt bad for him for thinking he needed to buy them.
Poor guy, but he got his HEA in the end and that's all that mattered!
Now, on to the next one!!
This is a silly, romantic comedy about a family of vampires helping a woman become one of them after she was accidentally turned by a rogue out to make her his forever. If I could watch a romantic comedy movie with a plot like this, I would in a second. As a book, I was somewhat amused but not all that entertained.
This installment in the Argeneau series was one of the best ones yet. It was great having someone be turned and move on instead of the constant denials that usually happen. Leigh and Lucian together were a lot of fun. I look forward to the next book in this series.

Pues les cuento que este libro no pensé que sería tan pronto dentro de la saga. Después de todo se trata de uno de los líderes dentro del clan de los vampiros y su aparición dentro de los demás no era tan notoria como para que uno pensara que si sería el que seguiría, pero lo fue y de alguna forma hubiera deseado que demorara más en llegar. Pues bien el líder de este Clan: Lucian, siempre se mostró como alguien serio, frío, sin corazón y que le daría exactamente igual lo que le pasara al resto c ...more

“What is it?”
Leigh glanced up with uncertainty, then back to his groin with a sort of horrified fascination. “Well, um… is there something about immortals you haven’t told me?”
“What? What do you mean?” he asked with bewilderment.
Leigh shook her head, then leaned forward and said “Hello?” to his groin, only to stiffen again and jerk back as if it had hissed at her.
“Are you talking to my penis?” Lucian asked with disbelief.
“It talked to me first,” she said defensively, and frowned. “You didn’t mention this little skill.”
Lucian decided she must be joking and laughed. “So, what did it say?”
“It said, ‘Lucian? Lucian, are you there?’” He blinked.
“Why would it say that?”
“I don’t know. It’s your penis.”
That’s when he recalled the cell phone in his pocket. A laugh bursting from his lips, Lucian reached in his pocket to retrieve the phone.”
“I made you something to eat if you’re hungry.”
Leigh peered at the steaming pile on the plate on the tray, then asked uncertainly. “What is it?”
“Prime cuts in gravy.”
“Prime cuts in gravy?” she echoed slowly. “Did you cook it?”
"I opened the can and heated it up in the microwave for one minute. Someone named Alpo cooked it.”
Leigh stiffened, her head shooting up, eyes wide with disbelief. “Alpo?”
He shrugged. “That’s what the can said.”
Leigh shook her head with bewilderment. “You can use a microwave, but not a phone, and don’t know that Alpo isn’t the chef, but the brand name for dog food?” There was something seriously wrong here.”
