Love Bites (Argeneau #2)
Etienne Argeneau's three hundred years of bachelorhood were at an end. Either that, or he'd be forever alone. He could turn only one human in his lifetime, and most of his kind created a life mate. If he turned this stranger... But what choice did he have? He had to help Rachel Garrett. The beautiful coroner had saved his life. To save...more
Anyway, aside from that fun time, it was pleasant but on the dull side. Highl ...more
I've only read one other book by Lynsay Sands ("Sweet Revenge"), which was one of her older historical romances. Although I liked "Sweet Revenge" well enough, it didn't compel me to want to snatch up her backlist at the time. Sands writing style is simple and easy reading, and since I prefer a deeper, more complex and emotional writing style in my historicals, I believe that's why I didn't pursue her after "Sweet Revenge." "Love ...more
Love Bites is the second book in the Argeneau’s series. I must admit I read these out of order because I was unable to find books 2,3, and 4 but now I have them and I was not disappointed. A light vampire read filled with family and love.
Etienne is one of the youngest of the bunch being a little over three hundred years old, so he gets no respect from his brothers. His job is to create video games and his most popular is Blood Lust, a game about rogue vampires and their s ...more
Rachel is a forensic pathologist when Etienne Argeneau (believed dead) and personal stalker intervene in her life. The dialogues when she wakes up are funny, and the first Argeneau family reunion.
But I didn't care Etienne's personality after that (misleading Rachel to keep her), and the 'push' of Thomas.
(Pudge reminds me at the end of BTVS's Andrew)
Anyway, after all of my hesitation, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was indeed a light read, not as funny as the first in this series, but a great read all the same. I love the Argeneau family. My only real negative for this book, was the fairly easy ac ...more
reanimates after some recovery time. Pudge the vampire hunter bursts into the morgue and fatally injures Rachel so Etienne feels obliged to turn her to save her. Trouble is, Rachel refuses to believe she is a vampire and Pudge won't give up on killing them both.
What did I like about the book? I loved Pudge! He was so pathetic and weird and a total nutjob and I ...more
This is one of those "vampires as people with fangs" book. In other words, vampire light. It's also one of those books that are heavy on the romance and determined to have a perfect HEA. The heroine is the hero's one and only chance at a lifemate. I know, a bit on the cheesy side, but it fit my mood that day.
Besides, it was in a pi ...more
It's a quick read and the character development in this novel is certainly better than in the first, although the plot seemed terribly familiar tow ...more
Again, I think Ms Sands has a good premise - vampire who is being hunted by a mortal shows up "dead" in the morgue and gets involved with the coroner. But the execution is so awful! The characters aren't really funny, the situ ...more
"Love Bites" is the second novel in the Argeneau series. This book is about Etienne, an immortal who creates video games, and Rachel, a coroner. That has got to be one heck of an unlikely pairing but for this book, it worked. I think I read this book the first time when I was in high school, and being as yet innocent, I missed a lot of the humor in this book. Reading it for the third time and I found it funny as hell. Rachel was just hilarious. I loved being in her head and readin ...more
Etienne Argeneau's three hundred years of bachelorhood are at an end. He can only "turn" one human in his lifetime, and most of his kind reserved that power for creating a life mate. He has to save Rachel Garrett. He doesn't know her very well, but the beautiful coroner had saved his life. To save hers he would make her immortal. Rachel Garrett awakes surprised. All she'd wanted was to get off the night shift at the morgue; now here she is stagg ...more

Cons: The concept is not very original
When Etienne, a vampire, finds himself in a night shift morgue on the slab, so to speak, in coroner Rachel Garrets care, he develops an attraction for her and ends up having to change her into a vampire to save her life.
If you're looking for a new vampire romance series to get into this book is pretty good. However some of the following novels begin to get a little repetitive, in the the sense that after this one, the ...more
I was surprised that an issue didn't come up after Etienne feeds her "that" blood at the beginning. And then, Etienne delaying "the talk"... If a 300 year-old man is not self confident at that age, then he's beyond hope ! And a simple human wants to kill a vampire and noone in the family moves ? ...more
Not too much action, not too much evil. The Argeneau family is, as many families, very involved. They all want to know what everyone is doing, and they want to be involved and help.
Etienne is so sweet. Even though he's 300 years old, he's never been in love. But when he has a human trying to kill him when he figures out he's a vampire, he e ...more
I loved Etienne and his incapacity to explain things, but again in his situation I think kost man would find explaining a ...hard ...thing to do. ( not sorry for the pun if you do get it)
I find it amusing that things started evolving after a few books. I mean everyone faints in the later books and almost no one does in the f ...more
I do have hopes for this series. I fell in love with the character of Thomas, and his interactions in this novel pe ...more
