Oh, the fail is strong in this one, my friends.
So very many.
This book is supposed to be a Paranormal Romance & Mystery.
The only thing it succeeded at was the Paranormal part. Wait, there is a scientific reason for vampires in this world - so it even fails there. Wow, a perfect 10 out of 10 in the fail world!
Don't be fooled by realistic fakes, no matter how good they look on the outside.
So, the "Paranormal" isn't.
Next comes the "Romance". There is an old vampire who had a very small part in a ...more
Samantha is a hard-charging young lawyer, burning her way up the ladder, trying to make partner at her prestigious law firm. When her sisters finally guilt her into taking their annual lake vacation, she gives in only to get sucked up into the disappearance of the spoiled daughter of on ...more
One thing you can always expect from Lynsay Sands is a funny and easy read, with just the right amount of romance. This is the first book of the Rogue Hunter series, I expected it to be a lot darker and intense but it has the same tone as the Argeneau series, not like that is a bad thing, I wanted more Rogue vampires and I got nada.
Sam and her sisters are on vacation at the family cottage for two weeks, it’s a great way to catch up and just hang out. Sam has a bit ...more
Unfortunately this was much like the others I've read and so the constant stress about getting hold of enough blood and the lifemate telltale signs are starting to feel well used. There were plenty of light moments and it was an easy enough read but there wasn't enough conversation or banter or anything that felt like good chemistry really to convince me that this cou ...more
I guess it bothered me that there was so much talk of threats, but nothing really happened? Not th ...more
Decker's neighbours are three sisters enjoying a two-week vacation: Alex, a chef, Sam, a lawyer, and Jo, a uni student. When Mortimer realises that Sam is his life mate, he's disap ...more
Hot on the heels of her series featuring the Argeneaus, "New York Times"-bestselling author Sands begins a new series focusing on the Rogue Hunters--immortals associated with the Argeneaus who work for The Council and hunt vampires who have broken their laws
My first thought is that the blurb is terrible and needs to be rewritten as it does not sell the book at all. My second thought is : this is soooo cool I know all the geography in this story e ...more
Fun to see a lawyer heroine and when she made the comment that kissing is not allowed in Malaysia , she's partially right.
Couples are not allowed to show public affections like kissing and HAND HOLDING or risked getting arrested.
Furthermore under the Penal Code oral sex is categorized under UNNATURAL SEX together with beastiality. Yep Malaysia is SUCH a fun country.
Did you know Ultraman comic in Malay language is banned because Allah means God and non- ...more
The sex scenes didn't trip my trigger in this one either. Maybe I am ...more
The Rogue Hunter by Lynsay Sands is full of romance and suspense with her trademark mayhem and humour. In it, an immortal, whilst on a mission to protect the world from rogue vampires unexpectedly finds his life mate, a human who is a committed career woman. The book is number 10 in the author’s Argeneau Vampire series.
Lynsay Sands portrays vampires as Atlanteans, who need blood to allow the nanos developed by their scientists to heal them and maintain their imm ...more
What nonsense did I just read? I mean really, what was this supposed to be? What it was was boring and basically a failure as both a PNR and a decent mystery.
Let me start with the fact that all of the characters are paper thin—no significant history, no real emotional depth, no obvious beliefs or thoughts outside of the immediate. In fact, for most of the book the side characters just went off by themselves and left the H & h alone. So, why bother with them?
There was also almost no world- ...more

Granted it's been a while since I've read Love Bites but Sands' writing style seems competely different in The Rogue Hunter; not as straight forward and almost completely devoid of any humour (though I fear it wasn't for lack of trying). I will pay her the scene where Mortimer reveals his secret to Sam however, that was entertaining.
Just a few probl ...more
Garrett Mortimer is a rogue hunter. His last assignment united Lucian Argeneau with his lifemate, and Mortimer is hoping this one will be less . . . ad ...more
I was a bit, or more, annoyed with Mortimer judging Sam when he first realised that he cannot read her. But you know, men will be men. ( But rabbits? Seriously? Damn.)
And I was bit more annoyed with all the controlling going around. It was very obvious and kind of dragged along. But anyway it all came to a s ...more
Hier geht es nicht direkt um die Argeneau-Familie, aber am Rande spielen sie doch etwas mit. Hauptfiguren sind die Rechtsanwältin Samantha Willan und der Vampirjäger Garrett Mortimer. Ob Sam sich wohl damit einverstanden erklärt einen unsterblichen als Lebensgefährten zu nehmen?
Ich mag einfach diese Kunst jedem Charakter so viel individuelles Leben einzuhauchen, dass er entweder sympathisch oder absolut unsympathisch ist und dennoch in seiner Welt vollkommen ist. Genau dies sc ...more
There are some I really enjoy, and some that had one or two nits in it that irked, BUT I still enjoyed them, like th ...more
The Argeneaus are vampires due to science – nanos were introduced into their bloodstreams in Atlantis, repairing the body from all illness, but the nanos need blood to function. So after the fall of Atlantis, they developed fangs, super speed, night vision, etc. to survive. The only way for them to die is by decapitation (or starvation). The sun just makes t ...more

"No, I'm cooking. If you want to be helpful, you can bring me my wine. I poured us both a glass." (Mortimer)
"No," he insisted, pushing her toward the door. "In you go. I'm the man. I get to barbecue while you stand around and look cute.”
"Yes, we'd both have to be bare," he said with a laugh. "Not bare naked," she gasped. "Bear bear. Furry bear. Bear!"
