This is the 28th book in the Argeneau series and Sands is still writing strong original plots that keeps the reader captivated by her storytelling.

Jess is trapped into attending a family destination wedding, only to find that she and her (not favorite) cousin have somehow been convinced to take a tourist trap of a pirate ship filled with blood sucking vampires. Jumping overboard, Jess decides to swim for it only to be rescued by an amazingly sexy man Raffaele.

Raffaele never thought he’d fine his

I hate to say it, but this is probably my second LEAST favorite in the series. (Considering that there are 28 books, not liking two isn't to shabby a ratio.) I love the Argeneau family (and all their relatives), but this one was just too... meh for me. The main non-Notte/Argeneau character wasn't particularly likable (in my opinion). And I get why Vasco was so annoying, but ugh.

Still, despite how I feel about this one, I know I'll get the next book in the series when it comes out. They're still

It's pretty rare that I stick with a series for 28 books but I continue to love this one. This book has some pluses and minuses. The heroine was pretty plucky and was interested in saving herself and not in being saved. I was happy that Margaret was not a match maker. I like these stories better when the H/h meet on their own. I wasn't so happy with the bit of love triangle that was going on here. But maybe the second guy will get his own book. It wasn't a true love triangle because really the l ...more
Reading any book in Argeneau series is like dining at a chain restaurant. It is not going to be a gourmet meal but you did not go in looking for one. If you did, that is strictly your problem and you should seriously work on your education/perception of the world.
There is comfort and ease to the favorite fast food meal. Most likely it's not particularly nutritious but it's what you needed that moment and it fills your belly for time being and you and your rapidly clogging arteries can cheerfully

The Argeneau series was one of the first series that introduced me to urban fantasy/vampire romance and on top of everything it was hilarious in places, sadly the series has never returned to that level of entertainment but it is still entertaining since I hardly sat the book down in spite of the weakness of the heroine and the eye rolling Captain.

This whole seems to revolve around a plot for vampires to feed off of humans, there is a reason for this and sadly it seems unless I missed it this pa

Ok, I normally do not grab vampire books and I definitely would not step into a book series at number twenty-eight.... But the blurb grabbed me and I clicked to get it. I was very happy and surprised by how much I enjoyed this book!

Jess is trapped in a family destination wedding with her dreaded cousin. After taking a seaquarium trip, her cousin was talked into taking an additional trip to witness shark feeding. The captain has a certain swagger Jess is attracted to, so she agrees to go.

This was fine. I'd read the very first Argeneau books by Ms. Sands when they came out eons ago, and now we're up to #28 in the series. So let's face it when I picked this up at the library, it was with the understanding that I knew what I was going to get. It's a longstanding low-angsty vampire soap opera, with all the books interconnected but not completely dependent on the reader to have kept up with the series. If you know the basic construct for this vampire mythology, you're all good to go.

Vampires Like It Hot is book number twenty eight!! I still can’t believe how large this series has become and man this book is one of the best of the SERIES. I was really impressed with how well this book was written here. I don’t know exactly what it was that really made such a big impression on me, if it was listening to this book or if this book was a bit different from anything this author has done in this series previously.

Before I talk about the book, I just want to say that I love this series. I can't say objectively that these are literary classics in the academic sense, but I will say that it is one of the top series I read just because I've grown so attached to this world and the characters who inhabit it, and this despite the fact that I'm not primarily a romance fan. I used a post my reviews of every Argeneau book on Lynsay Sands website before that forum exploded into a smoking digital crater (technology c ...more

VAMPIRES LIKE IT HOT by Lynsay Sands. This one was a fun one for me, even though there is danger throughout. I liked the twists and turns and I was never sure how this would turn out. While paranormal is not always my favorite genre, Ms. Sands' writing keeps me intrigued and turning the pages. She has a way of making the reader believe it is real. I look forward to enjoying more from Ms. Sands. (received ARC from Edelweiss for honest review)
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Vampires Like It Hot by Lynsay Sands is book 28 in the Argeneau series. This is the story of Raffaele Notte and Jessica 'Jess' Stewart. This can easily be a standalone book for sure.
Jess is on the Island for a family's designated wedding. There on the island she gets stuck with a unruly spoiled cousin who ends up getting them on a vampire pirate ship. Raffaele is helping family when they find that there are some immortals using the local humans for 'food'. They start to investigate when he happ

#28 and I'm still reading this series! Formularic they may be but, damn they are almost always so good!! Interesting characters, funny plots and cool hijink abound.

This one has a twist I didn't care to see at first, but Sands opened it up to even more Immortals I'd love to have find their true lifemates.

We are headed to the South American region soon and I cant wait to see who kicks butt and takes names there.

I received an ARC of this title from Edelweiss for an honest review.

I'm not sure why I keep reading this series. I've found the past..probably 5 to be ridiculous beyond belief. But still I read. This one is better. It wasn't quite as ridiculous, though I did question the female MC's decisions quite a few times.

Ohmygosh. These "sexy vampire" books are SO cheesy. 😂 At least, they're funny and easy to read.

I spent the first 3/4s of this book repeatedly checking if I'd somehow mistakenly picked up a previous book in the series that I'd already read, because everything felt so familiar to me. I kept going "I KNOW I've read this before!" However, I've only read one other book in the Argeneau series, and as this book only released about a month before I read it I'm positive I hadn't actually read this book before and forgotten about it in the span of a month. (Even I'm not that forgetful.)

Another great addition to the story so far. Hope Vasco find's his HEA.

2 1/2 and I cannot bump it up. I've had too many of these. The ending was good but that was about it. I said I wouldn't read another of these after the last book. The only reason I did now is because my library has it easily available. These actually make me a little frustrated. The last made me mad, actually mad. This one is just frustrating and not humorous. Read my notes from below.

Wow, so I cannot believe I'm reading this and... I'm already annoyed. Do we really have the heroine physicall
I still love this series.
But the book could have been much more.

Another Great Argeneau episode by Lynsay Sands, where we see some tense areas, not as much as previous episodes, but we have some pretty humorous areas with the way immortal 'PirateVampire' Vasco speaks to student holidaymaker Jess whose gone to Punta Cana for her cousin's wedding & went on to the ship for a 'feeding' expedition but not in the way they thought but she see's & decides to get away in any which way. And she comes across or well Raffaele & his cousins Santo & Zan

I loved this book! I love how this author has the ability to pull me into the story with ease and hold my attention until the end. The twists and turns left me sitting on the edge of my seat just waiting to see what will happen next. The characters are creative and made me feel part of the story. Jess is a great character that at times I wondered what she was thinking and other times yes! Raffaele makes the best book boy-friend, hot, sexy!

I was getting fed up with this series but this new book made me realize that with a new refreshing story my interest has returned
This is the story of Raffaele Notte, who is taking a break at an ocean resort with Santo and Zanipolo, after he had rescued them being tortured. Now they have time off to deal with the issues before returning to their jobs as Immortal Rogue Hunters.
But this resort doesn’t want them to relax, there are more vampires and they are taking bites out of the tourists. Raffaele, Santo and Zanipolo decide they are going to look into this and report it back to Lucien.

I received this as an arc and OMG i LOVED it! Even though this is book 28 it doesn't feel like torture and that the author is dragging it out just for the sake of money, this book is legit awesome like all the others. The witty one liners in this book are amazing and had me laughing the entire time I read it- especially the nickname that Jess makes up for "hot naked Raff". Raff saved Jess from Vasco and Cristo and repeatedly made sure everything was thought of and but Raff did everything to keep ...more

I have always liked reading the Argeneau novels. They are fun. The Argeneau's, the Notte's are having fun finding life mates.
In a small break from Enforcer based books, we go on vacation to Punta Cana to read about Jess and Raffaele. He is an Immortal. Immortals are not Vampires. Yes, I know if it quacks like a duck it must be a duck. But this is not the case. They require blood to keep the Nanos going.

Anyway, back to Punta Cana. Jess escapes Pirates! Yes, Pirates who also happen to be Immorta
I usually grab Sands when I want to read something light and funny... it's a typical holiday read for me and now that even the settings is in a holiday resort at a beach... with all that tropical humidity and pirates, nothing could be better.
The trouble here is that our protagonist gets to know about vampires in a bad way and it doesn't shed good light on her warming to the idea of dating one. Let alone spending time with him. Add in not one but two potentional life mates and you know there will

Raffaele is such a caring man, “ of course she’s not all right. Look at her, she’s white as a sheet,” Raffaele growled, and then offered Jess a pained smile and suggested, “Try to take slow and steady breaths, my love. Deep breaths, give your brain a chance to process.” I don't think Raffaele knows how to handle his woman's actions at times, "Raffaele opened his mouth, closed it, and then groaned and leaned his forehead on hers. “You’re going to kill me, woman.” I liked this book.
