I like the Argeneaus a lot, they've become family, and my writing about different couples each time makes it easier and more fun than I suspect following one character or a couple through several books would be. I think that would be onerous, but this way, it's always a new book but with the background of the immortal world.(less)

Argeneau book #25, Immortal Unchained, is now out on the bookstore shelves! Yay!

It felt like this release took forever to come out and I think the reason it because I've had parts of this story in my head for some time. It's nice to see it finally in print. ;-)

Chris Brandstatter Thank you for the "Friend"!! I love your books!!!


Lynsay Sands Thank-you for friending me. ;)


message 3: by Toni

Toni I love reading your books. I truly enjoy the Argeneau series. Don't stop writing about them. LOL!

I think they would make a great television series or movie/movies!


Trisha Cook Love, love, LOVE all of your Scottish Romance novels. Thanks so much for friending me!


message 5: by Thea

Thea Arguelles Hi Ms Lynsay,
Thank you so much for accepting my friend request. I love reading your books and my most favourite of all is Bite Me If You Can of Lucian and Leigh. I really had a lot of fun reading their story and laughed a lot. More power to you! Hope you have a wonderful day! :)


Janice Bolick I don't know if you have it in Canada, but there are listing on the internet for chocolate covered garlic, which sounds like a fun snack for Halloween, It sounded quite good to me, since I love chocolate covered candied ginger. Of course chocolate covered garlic might drive Victor and Vincent--of they were real-- "crazy".


Hey Book Sister Thank you for accepting our invitation!
We loved your Argeneau series and therefore consider it an honor to have you on board with this amazing project we are starting.
Please let us know if there is something we may be of help.
You can also find us on Facebook and Twitter @HeyBookSister
Best regards from the Hey Book Sister team :D

Janice Bolick Bite Me, If You Can is also one of my top favorites. I loved the parts about Lucian trying to clean up the kitchen, also the parts when he was trying to take care of the dog, Julius. The Argeneau series would make a fun TV, or movie series. I know I would watch it.


message 9: by Janice (last edited Oct 22, 2016 11:44AM)

Janice Bolick Enforcer House...Rogue Hunter House. I like both names for Mortimer's home, though...I wouldn't want to go there. On the other hand...if a rogue was after...maybe...I would. But I'd be sure not to have "Tacky" as the ringtone on my cell phone. I--for one-- would...never... want Lucian, Scotty, Mortimer...or any other Enforcer/Rogue Hunter to be tracking me--in real life-- for any reason. I'd hope...not...to run into Lucian if he ever was injured or wounded, as I might be afraid to donate to...him. Unlike me, my fictional self, Tori, might...most likely, would.

I wouldn't want to be a rogue being hunted by enforcers either... however being the life mate of one of them...hmm. ;-)


message 13: by Janice

Janice Bolick I've wondered if there is an Latin American (Mexican, Central, and or South) Immortal Council...or say the islands, as Tomasso turned Abigail, out of Lucian's area. Also, has any Council...Leader--say Europe--ever gone rogue? I guess Lucian and/or Scotty would have to take care of that. I know if it was real, I wouldn't want to be a "bitee" for a European council member, I didn't even have time to get to know.


message 14: by Janice

Janice Bolick I've wondered at what part of their history did the Atlanteans/Immortals learn that they could use mind control and mind reading on both mortals and immortals, and how they learned how to use it, so they could teach tie other immortals. I figured that those skills were provided to them by the nanos in the bodies, and bloodstream.


message 15: by Janice

Janice Bolick Might be amazing being the lifemate of an Enforcer, and meeting his family, but I'd be terrified of the painful turn.

After the fall of Atlantis the few that survived had to fend for themselves. They needed to hunt for blood in order to survive, hence the onset of fangs, speed, night vision and mind control to control their host.

Just as there is a North American council, there would be a South America council as well. As for a council member going rogue...that would be tricky. The thing is other immortals can read you and if a council member's thoughts started turning strange or worse yet no one could read a particular council member anymore....well that indicates insanity so a council member turning rogue would likely get caught pretty quickly.


message 18: by Janice (last edited Oct 22, 2016 11:42AM)

Janice Bolick Thank you much, that relieves my own mind. Even though I know its fiction, I had a crazy dream about that once. I guess with my private..."What if" games", it makes me dream about it, in my sleep. Oh well, it's fun, and makes me laugh when I wake. Oddly, that 'unknown' fictional European Council scares me ...much more...than Lucian does. I would never want to be a "bitee' of a European Council member. unless it was Martine, or even one of Julius's parents.


message 19: by Janice

Janice Bolick I've wondered if Martine's current lifemate, Aloysious (?) --if he's still living--will appear in a book, or even Gia's parents. I've been quite curious about them, for some reason...as well as Martine's already mated sons.


message 20: by Janice

Janice Bolick Just started a list on bibliocommons.com in my public library system, that I called Vampire Cookery/ Immortal Style: Thank You Notte Twins, which has books on various foods...especially Italian foods, that both mortal and immortal humans would enjoy. Lots of garlic, but...sadly, no chocolate covered garlic.


message 21: by Janice

Janice Bolick Looking forward to Immortal Unchained, and I belive that will be my favorite of the three covers --Runaway Vampire, Immortal Nights, and Immortal Unchained. I think it would be fun to have some of the new stories set in San Antonio. Like Toronto, and Ottawa, I fell in love with San Antonio.


message 22: by Janice (last edited Nov 02, 2016 11:24AM)

Janice Bolick I wonder if Lucian...really... likes coffee, or if he only drinks it at breakfast, as the "proper" drink with breakfast, or some foods. I have trouble picturing him as the type that would just sit down in a coffee or a donut shop, drinking coffee. Much less bring a cup of coffee and/or pastry to a mortal human, then sit down at a table with them...that would be a...real...surprise.


message 23: by Janice (last edited Nov 29, 2016 01:45PM)

Janice Bolick I wonder how Lucian would react, if a mortal human threw a snowball at him. To me that would be a fun thing to see, or...Lucian in a Santa hat. I have wondered if the ancient immortals even celebrate Christmas. But...knowing him, he might be able to read that mortal human's mind, before that mortal human got within snowball throwing range.


message 24: by Janice (last edited Dec 19, 2016 09:25AM)

Janice Bolick Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!


message 25: by Lynsay

Lynsay Sands Merry Christmas Janice! I hope you and your family have a wonderful holiday and year to come.
Hugs,
Lynsay


message 26: by Janice (last edited Dec 20, 2016 01:44PM)

Janice Bolick Thank you, much. I hope you have a White Christmas. I know Toronto and Ottawa, etc, must be beautiful on a snowy day. I loved them so much in July, and greatly miss those cities. Oddly, since I was lucky to get to Ottawa -- and downtown Toronto-- ony one day a year during July 1985-July 2000, I always felt safe, and even, that I was home.


message 27: by Janice

Janice Bolick Hope you and your family has fun during Christmas. I celebrate Christmas from the day after Thanksgiving (US's) to the day after Olde Christmas (Jan 6th).


message 28: by Janice (last edited Dec 27, 2016 03:41PM)

Janice Bolick Happy New Year, and I hope you had a good Boxing Day. We don't really have that holiday, here in the States, but I know of it.


message 29: by Lynsay

Lynsay Sands Thank you Janice! I hope you have a very Happy New Year as well.

You celebrate from Thanksgiving until January 6th...that's a lot of celebrating. I hope you and you're family are enjoying the festivities.

;-)
Lynsay


message 30: by Janice

Janice Bolick Thank you, we are in a rather calm and quiet way. Just enjoying the music, food, and family is enough for us.


message 31: by Janice

Janice Bolick I've often wondered what the native language of the ancient Immortal Atlanteans. I guess it could have been ancient Greek, or Latin. Often, I've wished I had the skill to learn the French Canadian dialect, or other languages such as Italian.


message 32: by Janice

Janice Bolick I keep trying to think of just how Lucian would look dressed in a Santa hat...much less a ...whole...Santa suit, with a long white beard...that image makes me laugh.


message 33: by Janice

Janice Bolick Have a Blessed and Happy 2017!


message 34: by Janice (last edited Dec 31, 2016 10:32AM)

Janice Bolick Love those Bouvier photos on your home site. I have a friend that has one. I...love...dogs, though I've never had any...,one day... Maybe Lucian would like to have a Bouvier, as he did so well with Margarite's dog Julius.


message 35: by Janice

Janice Bolick Happy New Year. Now that Olde Christmas is over, I'm getting ready for Spring.


message 36: by Janice

Janice Bolick Counting the months for Immortal Unchained, and...the next ones.


message 37: by Lynsay

Lynsay Sands Hi Janice,

Bouviers are lovely dogs but stubborn as heck so they really do need a patient but determined hand.

As for Lucian getting a Bouvier...he and Leigh have their hands full with the twins so I doubt they'll be getting into having furbabies anytime soon. LOL

I hope you have a wonderful 2017 Janice! ;-)

Lynsay


message 38: by Janice (last edited Feb 22, 2017 11:52AM)

Janice Bolick Since, I'd be a first time dog owner, a Bouvier wouldn't be the best breed for me, though I have encountered 2 sweet ones belonging to friends. I'm more likely to get a spitz, or even a Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever. I still hope that Princess Sandy, the groundhog was right in her prediction of spring Our Queen Charlotte predicted more winter...yuck.


message 39: by Janice

Janice Bolick Plan to order 2 hardback copies of Immortal Unchained, when I can. I just hope I don't have the same results as I did last fall. I ordered 2 hardback copies of Immortal Nights at a Barnes & Noble...those didn't arrive, 2 more copies were order, then...all four came in., and...so... I bought all 4. Greatly looking forward to Immortally Yours, as I know I'll never tire of the Argeneau series, and plan to buy all the future books in the series.


message 40: by Janice

Janice Bolick Just pre-ordered 2 hardback copies of Immortal Unchained, yesterday. Counting the days.

So far so good...the weather's been wonderful here!
You're getting a new dog? That's exciting...and I agree, a Bouvier wouldn't be the best breed for a new dog owner. Sorry but I don't know much about the spitz or the Northern Duck Tolling Retriever.

4 hardcover copies of Immortal Nights...Oh-no!
(If a delay like that happens again you should be able to send back those copies...)

I hope you enjoy Immortal Unchained...I do love this cover!

;-)

Janice Bolick I may not get a dog for a few years, but I always loved them. Hope you had a good "Family Day", yesterday-- I just spotted it on one of my calendars-- I had a good "President's Day", that same day. I did find it rather funny getting those 2 extra copies of Immortal Nights. I just might find someone to give them to, this next Christmas, or...keep them. I know I'll love Immortal Unchained, and it's cover is my favorite of these last three. Oh... I sure miss those Tim Horton donuts.''one day I'll find them, again.


message 43: by Janice

Janice Bolick Happy March 1st. I bet you've seen enough snow and cold, and are ready for Spring.

I'm happy to hear you enjoyed President's day.

I, too, love the newest cover for Immortal Unchained. I think Terri's having a great time with it as well as she gets to use a lot of fire graphics now! LOL

Yes, I'm very happy to see the milder weather has come back.

Take care Janice!

message 45: by Janice

Janice Bolick Been reading some dog books, once again, while I'm ... "impatiently"...waiting on Immortal Unchained. Counting the days, as I'll have loads of fun seeing how Lucian deals with the bad guys. I sure miss the beautiful warm Canadian Julys, and all those good cherries my parents and I loved to eat on the way to Toronto, from the beautiful Niagara River area. Have a great day.


message 46: by Janice

Janice Bolick Our last "big snow" here in Charlotte, NC, was less than 2 inches, and stayed on the ground for less than 5 hours. I was quite disappointed, as even though I dislike cold weather, I do love a pretty snowfall that will last more than 1 day. Oh, well...maybe next winter.


message 47: by Janice

Janice Bolick Thank you for recommending Sandra Hill's Deadly Angels series. I enjoyed that short series, though yours will always be among my top favorites. I normally ignor a book Critic's reviews or comments, but if I see either your name -- or Christine Feehan's name-- recommending a paranormal book or series, I'm likely to give it a try, especially if it seems to have a lot of humor. Have a great day.


message 48: by Janice (last edited Mar 29, 2017 09:35AM)

Janice Bolick Just bought Immortal Unchained on the afternoon of Monday, March 27th...love it. Thought Santo Notte was quite heroic. Also loved Quinn MacDonald.


message 49: by Janice

Janice Bolick Love the cover of Immortally Yours...can hardly wait.


message 50: by Janice

Janice Bolick I was rather amused to see that you had a Templetun, that was referred to as being a rat. I had a late Templeton uncle, and he was born a Year of the Rat. I guess Templetun could have been an early form of Templeton. Have a great day.
