Vampire, Interrupted (Argeneau #9)
After seven hundred years of life, Marguerite Argeneau finally has a career. Well, the start of one, anyway. She's training to be a private investigator, and her first assignment is to find an immortal's mother. It seemed 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.

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...more
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...more
This installment in the argeneau series is one of the best yet. Marguerite's story is even more complicated and full of twists and turns that will keep readers on their toes. I really liked getting to know more about Marguerite's history and herself in general in this book. She really is a great mom and wonderful woman...more
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...more
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...more
Title: Vampire, Interrupted
Series: Argeneau #9
Author: Lynsay Sands
Some people didn't like reading this book as it is about the mother of the vampires in the previous books but I was looking foreward to reading her story and hopefully understanding her and her past a bit more and this book didn't disappoint.
Marguerite is on her first case as a private detective and has been asked by Christian Notte if she could track down his mother. Someone is out to get her right...more
Even though you have a bunch of Argeneau family members finding their HEA, it was sad to see how much the patriarch/matriarch suffered in the early days. Jean-Claude was painted as such an ass, h...more
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...more

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...more
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...more
I feel so torn up to learn about her history .... her tragic marriage with Jean Claude( who turned out to be isn't a mean bad evil person after all, and I feel bad for his misfortune as well )
however had Marguerite hadn't lost her memory and went back with Jean Claude we wouldn't have met the others Ageneau at all!
don't get me wrong I feel sad for Marguerite and Julius and poor Christian but I wouldn't want the series to be Notte, it doe...more
I liked that about it.
I didn't like the characters at all for the first part of the book. Julius just kind of bugged me, and so did Marguerite. Which is funny since she's been around since the very beginning. I guess it was just weird because she is the matriarch of the family so thinking of her in sexual encounters just kind of made me wiggy. Which is absolutely hilarious co...more
There was alot of background in this story and I loved that. I'm not going to go any farther, so I wont give away any of the story.
I wish I would have read the reviews here before diving in. Of course, I studied the family tree and spoiled the whole mystery of the book, spending the first half of the book distracted wondering...why and how?
This is the crown jewel folks and is the BEST out of all 9 books (so far...). I admit I was a little iffy on a book about Marguerite. This is the matriarch of the family and she's going to fall lifemate to some...more

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?”
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.”
