Etienne Argeneau's three hundred years of bachelorhood were at an end. Either that, or he'd be forever alone. He could only "turn" one human in his lifetime, and most of his kind reserved that power for creating a life mate. If he turned the wrong woman...But what choice did he have? He had to save Rachel Garrett. He didn't know her ve...more
Yeah, I hate when that happens.
So, Rachel is a coroner who is kind of a perv. She's all creeping on this corpse, thinking how sexy he is. I seriously think that her boss should be apprised of this situation.
But, don't worry, her dream-corpse is actually a vampire, so it's not at all necrophilia for her to be having sex dreams about him.
Also, she throws herself in front of an ax-wielding maniac to stop him from cutting off her ...more
Anyway, aside from that fun time, it was pleasant but on the dull side. Highl ...more
I've only read one other book by Lynsay Sands ("Sweet Revenge"), which was one of her older historical romances. Although I liked "Sweet Revenge" well enough, it didn't compel me to want to snatch up her backlist at the time. Sands writing style is simple and easy reading, and since I prefer a deeper, more complex and emotional writing style in my historicals, I believe that's why I didn't pursue her after "Sweet Revenge." "Love ...more
Etienne can't believe his luck. He's ended up in the morgue twice this week. Pudgy is really becoming a problem - especially since he just axed the pretty redhead coroner. She saved his life, so now he must save her the only way he can.
This is the second of thirty or so installments of the Argeneau series, centered so far on a loving vampire family in the Toronto area that ...more
Love Bites is the second book in the Argeneau’s series. I must admit I read these out of order because I was unable to find books 2,3, and 4 but now I have them and I was not disappointed. A light vampire read filled with family and love.
Etienne is one of the youngest of the bunch being a little over three hundred years old, so he gets no respect from his brothers. His job is to create video games and his most popular is Blood Lust, a game about rogue vampires and their s ...more
Rachel is a forensic pathologist when Etienne Argeneau (believed dead) and personal stalker intervene in her life. The dialogues when she wakes up are funny, and the first Argeneau family reunion.
But I didn't care Etienne's personality after that (misleading Rachel to keep her), and the 'push' of Thomas.
(Pudge reminds me at the end of BTVS's Andrew) ...more
Anyway, after all of my hesitation, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was indeed a light read, not as funny as the first in this series, but a great read all the same. I love the Argeneau family. My only real negative for this book, was the fairly easy ac ...more
This too was an okay read but I think it bears mentioning again that this is one weird-ass series. xD
Hears the thing, I'm never gonna reread this. And even though I finished this just this morning and yeah I do remember it, plot, characters, everything, it still feels like I don't. As if I read this over a week ago and am only just getting around to writing the review, you get?
Ah but yes at the end I was looking for Bastien to be next rather than Luc but yeah. I hope I make it to his book, they' ...more
Not too much action, not too much evil. The Argeneau family is, as many families, very involved. They all want to know what everyone is doing, and they want to be involved and help.
Etienne is so sweet. Even though he's 300 years old, he's never been in love. But when he has a human trying to kill him when he figures out he's a vampire, he e ...more
reanimates after some recovery time. Pudge the vampire hunter bursts into the morgue and fatally injures Rachel so Etienne feels obliged to turn her to save her. Trouble is, Rachel refuses to believe she is a vampire and Pudge won't give up on killing them both.
What did I like about the book? I loved Pudge! He was so pathetic and weird and a total nutjob and I ...more
It's a quick read and the character development in this novel is certainly better than in the first, although the plot seemed terribly familiar tow ...more
This is one of those "vampires as people with fangs" book. In other words, vampire light. It's also one of those books that are heavy on the romance and determined to have a perfect HEA. The heroine is the hero's one and only chance at a lifemate. I know, a bit on the cheesy side, but it fit my mood that day.
Besides, it was in a pi ...more
I already knew the outcome of Rachel and Etienne’s relationship but wanted to read it anyhow. I found it funny, serious, and slightly romantic. It was an enjoyable read and I can’t wait to finish this long, long, loooong series. :D
What the hell was that.
Love Bites, the second book to the Argeneau series, somehow managed to be even weirder than its predecessor, and that’s a big feat. Let’s just say, whenever I read a vampire book in future, I’m going to be terrified there will be a dick biting while giving head scene. Yes that happened, yes she said she wanted to bite into his penis like a sausage, yes I’m now having nightmares.
So we follow vampire Etienne, who is a 300 year old bachelor. It’s so over the to ...more
In steps Rachel Garrett. She becomes critically wounded while preventing a madman from chopping off Etienne's head. Although he doesn't know her, and he'll never be allowed to ...more
The book 📖 started out funny and full of interesting ideas💡 about vampires 🧛♂️🧛♀️. Then it turned into a slow story about love 💗. Then kidnapping happened, excitement again and the cops 🚓 had to be convinced the bad guy was nuts, which didn’t take much effort. Finally love ❤️ triumphs!!!

I would say that I probably enjoyed it more when I first read it, but it was still a fun story coupled with a very different take on vampires. ...more
