So I got this book when I was finishing the Argeneau Vampire series by Ms. Sands. And I was very excited to finally hear Tiny's story. Usually when I get these short story books with several authors including their own stories, I only stick to the one that I want to read. However, with this one I took a chance and continued reading, and boy oh boy was I happy I did. Both Ms. Palmer and Ms. Rush did a great job at providing their own stories and even so much so that I have now started researching...more

It is really hard to rate these when 2 stories were great and one sucked. 3.5

"Vampire Valentine"- 2 stars
I've liked Lysay Sands' historicals, but they tend to be redundant. so, when I got my hands on her Argeneau Vampires, I was expecting more. I was disappointed. It was boring and had no plot.
Tiny and Maribeau are enforcers for the Argeneau family. Their mission is to take Stephenie and 14 yr old vampire to a safe house. They drop into the sewer, trek and backtrack with all kinds of hints of a...more

Cupid takes aim in this collection of Valentine's Day quickies
Love is in the air and Cupid's taken aim as paranormal romance authors Lynsay Sands, Pamela Palmer and Jamie Rush set out to deliver Valentines to their fans with this collection of romance short stories set in their series' universes( Sands' vampire Argeneaus, Palmer's shapeshifting Feral Warriors and Rush's psychic Offspring.) Cupid gives it good try here, and while 'quickies' can be fun, and all the stories had promising setups, a...more

Let me start by saying that I usually don't read anthologies when they contain writings from authors I've never heard of (ironic, I know). With that said, I will definitely be looking Pamela Palmer and Jaime Rush up from here on out.

It's hard to rate this book because it's three stories, by three different authors.

I love Lynsay Sands, and enjoyed Tiny's story a lot. It wasn't my favorite of the things she's written, but it was worth the time I spent within the pages. One of the things I love mo...more

Bitten by Cupid by Lynsay Sands, Pamela Palmer and Jaime Rush is a lusciously lip smacking dessert for Valentine's Day. Readers will delight in all three stories equally as each one is just a different Valentine prop and ever so important in its own right. Just think of Lynsay's story as the Perfect Red Rose, Pamela's story as the Silky Red Sheets and Jaime's story as the Dedecant Chocolate to be savored as you climax. Oh-la-la! Merci beau coup!

Vampire Valentine by Lynsay Sands is a petite delig...more

Recommended to Rossy by: continuation of a series
I'll have to agree with another reviewer that after waiting for Tiny's story anxiously it didn't deliver. While the story was written well, it didn't contain the author's usual humor and it was way too short. Heck, they barely got to know each other, i now have more questions than before.

I want to say that there was a little resolution with an old character's wedding and a pregnancy for another. But they didn't actually show either character but rather the news was delivered through someone else...more

I only read Vampire Valentine (Argeneau 12.5) by Lynsay Sands so far.


Vampire Valentine (Argeneau 12.5) by Lynsay Sands
Vampire Valentine was about Tiny, a mortal man that appeared a few times in previous Argeneau books. I love Tiny and I was really hoping he would find a lifemate amongst one of the immortals.
It was a fun story of 83 pages, the only reason I gave it only 4 stars is because it was a tad too short and feeled rushed. I so would've like to read a full novel about Tiny and Mirabeau. 4...more

I only bought this book for Tiny's story but Lyndsey Sands and it was okay. The problem with anthologies is you miss the build up, things just happen to fast. Don't get me wrong I wouldn't have passed on this book because I was excited for Tiny. I have not read the rest of the stories in this book.

Bitten by Cupid by Lynsay Sands. This book is from the paranormal romance genre. For fans of the Argeneau Novels, the characters and story settings are all taken from that series and have been created specifically with the Valentine's Day Holiday in mind. It can, however, be read as a stand alone book containing three delightful and romantic stories. Average Amazon rating: 3.5 Stars from 68 Reviewers.

The first of the three stories is Vampire Valentine; this story is about a very popular charac...more

This book is an anthology, and anthologies are unique in that the authors of each story must rebuild their worlds for their new readers and not bore returning readers of their series'.

The first story by Lynsay Sands interests me to read that series, but at the same time left me feeling confused and also feeling as though the story was simplified.

The second story, by Pamela Palmer, is from a series i am familiar with. However, there were still many holes that had me questioning the story until t...more

Vampire Valentine- I feel a little harsh in my rating because this is a short story and therefor has limits a full length story doesn't. This wasn't typical Lynsay Sands- it was not as adventure packed and not as funny. Her books always make me laugh out loud and I didn't feel this one really did. Which was kind of upsetting because I really like Tiny. His story should have had some action and close calls and it really didn't. It was nice to hear about people from past books.
Heather
this was an ebook checkout from my library, it has three short stories but as I got it for the Lynsay Sands short and couldn't really get into the others I only read the first one...which if you are familiar with her Argeneau series you will remember Tiny and this is his story

Okay, this book had three very good stories in it.

First, in Vampire Valentine, we catch up the Argeneau's on the day of the triple wedding that we've been waiting for. Tiny McGraw, mortal PI, is assigned to help transport little Stephanie, who may be a target for a rogue no-fanger, to a small town to hide out for a while. His partner, Mirabeau La Roche, rogue hunter.

Mirabeau is prepared for anything, except finding a life mate in Tiny, and the story is just so great. He throws her for a loop fr...more

only read Vampire Valentine by Lynsay Sands.

Marguerite Argeneau is at it again, if she keeps up her matchmaking, they are going to run out of enforcers. This time she set her eyes on Tiny McGraw and Maribeau La Roche.

Maribeau had lost all of her family when her uncle killed them, Lucian had found her when she was trying to escape her uncles men. Lucian had brought her to Marguerite. She has been a part of their family and yet separate as she never really got over the horror of what happened to...more

I bought this one for the Feral Warriors entry from Pamela Palmer, but I was looking forward to checking out the other two authors, as well. It was a bit hit and miss, though, for me.

This is the second attempt I have made to read something from Lynsay Sands. The first was one of the full-length novels from her Argeneau series, and I gave up about half way through. Same thing happened here...I thought Tiny was a sweetheart, but he was the only tolerable character I could find. I gave up about hal...more

On p. 104 of 126. I am interested in seeing what is going on in the Argeneau world!

So I finished this novella in four days. I only read the Lynsay Sands short story. This story is about Mirabeau La Rouche (immortal woman) and Tiny McGraw (mortal man). They are set up by the matriarch of the Argeneau family, Margeruite. Their mission is to deliver a newly turned vamp to safety and protect her from a no-fanger.

Usually Ms. Sand's stories are entertaining and humorous, even with a touch of suspese....more

Vampire Valentine - part of Sands' Argeneau vampire series - none of which I have read since I know she writes funny and I don't especially care for funny vampire stories except a few specific authors - it wasn't as funny as I'd expected it to be though so I guess that's a good thing

Hearts Untamed - part of Palmer's Feral Warriors series - focuses on a non-Feral Warrior and his best friend/unexpected mate - I love her books and I'm actually glad she chose to w...more

So I only read 2 of the 3 short stories. Still, it's a success for the publisher. These short story anthologies are clearly designed to get readers' attention on new authors by featuring them in combination with a very popular author. In this case, Lynsay Sands Argeneau series #12.5 is the headliner, featuring the very popular character Tiny, and then there are 2 other authors I'd never heard of, but who have each written several books and probably have a lot of fans well.

It's a great plan and...more

Review:Vampire Valentine by Lynsay Sands
I have been a fan of the Argeneau Series since I first found this fun Vamp Family. This time we get to visit with some of our Favorites! With the long awaited Multiple Weddings!
While Tiny McGraw has his private eye duties to help get a young new vamp to safety. He is a bit worried when he finds out that the Matriarch of the family has suggested him for the job... His new partner is Mirabeau a Rogue Hunter. She has a brokenhearted past and has never opened...more

I really loved reading Tiny's story by Lynsay Sands. I also highly enjoyed the story created by Pamela Palmer and will be researching her series! I thought her story line was very clever and had some very original aspects that intrigued me but I wasn't blown away by it. It had awesome bones and I did like the part about a mysterious race that faked it's own extinction! I thought the story was missing something and was just didn't flow perfectly. The idea was great though and I will be looking in...more

I enjoyed all three short stories.

I think my favorite was "Vampire Valentine" by Lynsay Sands. I read this out of order in the Argeneau series. Somehow I missed it, but decided to go back to it after reading The Reluctant Vampire . I wanted to know how Tiny and Mirabeau got together. After reading a few other reviews on this story, maybe it actually worked out better for me that I read it now, since I already knew more about Stephanie's situation.

I'd say "Hearts Untamed" by Pamela Palmer was my...more

Le antologie sono interessanti perché ti danno la possibilità di scoprire autori nuovi e serie che potrebbero essere di tuo gusto. Peccato quando tra i racconti c'è un grosso dislivello, per cui alcuni risultano positivi, altri molto meno.
Il primo racconto che ho letto è quello di Pamela Palmer, dato che ho preso Bitten by Cupid per questo. Ero curiosa di vedere che squarcio avrebbe aperto sulla vita delle persone ATTORNO ai Feral warriors. Sono rimasta soddisfatta: bei personaggi, storia sempl...more

Vampire Valentine - this was part of an anthology, and therefore a very short story, and so didn't have the depth or excitement of this authors usual writing. I think, however, this was a necessary part of the series as it allowed readers to be updated on what was happening with various couples in the Argeneau family, as well as telling of the brief story of Tiny and Mirabeau. It was nice to hear what they were up to, and I suspect will lay some ground maybe for upcoming instalments.

OK, I just realized I didn't write a review of this back when I read it so I will actually need to go back and reread Jaimie Rush's story.

Vampire Valentine- Lynsay Sands: I love this series. In this one Tiny officially joins the family. Tiny and Maribeau have taken the task of delivering Stephenie, a 14 yr old vampire to a safe house. I love all the Aregeneau stories so this was great for me.

Hearts Untamed- Pamela Palmer: I am a big fan of the Feral Warriors. This story however is about Theria...more

I just grabbed this anthology for the Feral Warriors short and I absolutely loved it.

Julianne moved to the Alexandria Therian enclave after both of her parents were killed. A young man named Zeeland befriends her and is her best friend until she matures and her feelings for him start to change. At twenty she finally asks Zee to be with her only to have him refuse and take off the next day, he is gone for the next ten years. Zee assumes that Juli knows why he left, she was five years too young f...more

I picked up this anthology because it had a Feral Warriors short by Pamela Palmer in it and ended up getting turned on to another author. I love when that happens!!! Hearts Untamed by Pamela Palmer was really good. I was expecting it to be about one of the Ferals but it wasn't. It was about someone else but a couple of the boys made an appearance. The story was really good and I'm curious about Zeeland. He and Hawke are buddies from way back and he seems to have a connection to his inner animal....more
