Of all the places he might expect to encounter his life mate, a quiet corner of upstate New York doesn’t seem likely.

Santo Notte has lived nearly three thousand years. He works for the Notte Construction Company as an engineer. He's presently volunteering as an immortal Enforcer. With his cousin Zanipolo and a family friend, Justin Bricker, and Julius and Marguerite Argeneau Notte, (uncle and aunt), they are watching Max Purdy's house to catch Dr. Dressler. He is a top priority target because he knows about, and has experimented on, immortals.

This was a very good story. I liked Santo and Petronella and enjoyed their story.

Petronella is a history professor that has an unusual background. Petronella (aka Pet) grew up in China and was the step-daughter to an immortal. Pet's family was killed except for a sister and after the both moved to the US and were adopted. Pet is single and her nephew is the closest she has to a kid.

Santo is a civil engineer for his family's construction business and is also is in a band with his cousins.

The Trouble With Vampires, Lynsay Sands’ twenty-ninth installment in her popular Argeneau series, brought with it some interesting twists, a smattering of suspense, and an adorably clueless couple swept away by their passion. Sounds fun, right?

I still can’t believe that we’re twenty-nine books into the Argeneau series and I’m just as captivated as ever by this story arc and the engaging characters we’ve met along the way. Sands is keeping things interest

This one was just ok for me. I didn't really feel the I love you now lifemate connection that usually happens with couples in this series. Instead I was more interesting on both Pet and Santo's past. Pet because she knew about Immortals and Santo because of all the horrible things that happened to him. I thought the ending was a bit over the top with what happened to Pet's family, but am looking forward to seeing what happens to them.

After centuries of battling enemies both external and within himself, Santo Notte has yet to find his life mate and he certainly didn't think he'd find her in upstate New York. But when he meets history professor Petronella Stone while investigating a rogue immortal, things finally change for him. Pet just wants to keep her nephew safe and with danger lurking ever closer and sketchy neighbors all around her sister's house, she's not really sure who to trust. Santo has waited so long to find his ...more

Not my favorite Lynsay Sands, but not the worst either.

Pet wasn’t too bad, her nephew was cute. But I couldn’t get into this one as much as others.

It’s still an enjoyable series.

Another enjoyable Argeneau paranormal romance. Again a different interesting view of a relationship with an immortal. I liked the heroine with her good instincts and not putting up with the hero's non-communicative ways. Professor Pet is babysitting her genius nephew and she has her suspicions about the new neighbors who appear next door including giant size Santo.

You Go Girl. Lynsay, just finished Santo's story and it was great. Just knowing some of the things that he has gone threw in his life. Life has been hard for him. The only thing that was driving him was his need to find Dr. Dressier and putting him down. That was all until Santo met a woman Pet,and her nephew, Parker. Still not knowing the changes that these two people will make in his life. Pet, also has had a lift no no one Santo has met before. She and her twin sister Quinn has seen horrors a ...more

You’d think after 28 books in this series that the 29th might just feel like the same ol’ same ol’. But NOPE! Still hot romance. Still humorous. Still suspenseful. But a different story every time. I love the Argeneau family and hope the books continue for a long time to come.
Sissy's Romance Book Review
The Trouble With Vampires by Lynsay Sands is book 29 in the Argeneau Series. This is the story of Santo Notte and Petronella 'Pet' Stone. I have read the previous book (and Loved it) but feel you can make this a standalone book if you wish to do so.
Pet has come to watch her nephew Parker when she was asked to by her sister. Pet is a History Professor and her nephew is a very smart 6 year old. Santo is now hunting down the immortal rogue who captured and tortured him. Santo has been finding armi

This book is in a long series. There are times when a book that has been part of a long series the newer book tends to suck. You want the author to just give it up and start writing a new because the ideas are repetitive and it hurts the series in the long run. I have had many series destroyed because an author just cannot let it go. However for Ms. Lynsay Sands that is not the case for this book.

The past two books however, Twice Bitten, was not the best at all as you can tell from my review, h

I was a little nervous to re-start this much-loved series 29 (!?!?) books in. Paranormal romances tend to build over time and I was worried jumping in blind would leave me lost the whole book. I’ve read a few books in this series, but it’s been YEARS, and I remembered exactly nothing about them. After reading this book, I can confidently say you can hop in on this book and not be lost in the least. In my mind, a book is stronger if you can read it as a standalone.

I love Lyndsay Sands and I love the Argeneau-Notte series

And while I love all the books including this one, I find that it’s becoming books with filler and not enough romance. The filler can be anything from unnecessary descriptors or setting to ridiculous shenanigans by the extended cast of characters or villains.

This book had a great pre story for the male and female leads. And their getting to know you was wonderful to read. But I don’t get how so much can happen in 48 hours and then a turn

More of a 4.5 but goodreads denies the existence of half stars.

For once, nobody does anything stewpid for lols. Yay. And the niggles are side characters or last minute drama.

The h is aware of immortals, being as how her mother was one's lifemate. She's also an orphan because apparently her stepdad was an enforcer who was targeted by a crime ring.

I was torn on this one. I loved that the heroine wasn't the usual in these books..whining and crying and in general acting like an idiot. Pet was actually smart and logical. On the downside... the plot is getting old and Santo was basically Lucien 2.0. I'll continue with reading the series... but depending on how this Dressler thing goes, it may not be for much longer.

Another wonderful installment of one of my favorite book series. There were a couple of spots where over explanation of minor details had me skipping forward, and the physical description of Pet was put in way late, but still a well-told paranormal romance.

Petronella Stone a history professor, was not in the least annoyed when her sister called in a favor – would Pet come and stay at her home to watch Parker, her brilliant 6 year old nephew? Actually, Pet would never give up time to spend with the adorable tyke and they had settled in admirably.

The Trouble With Vampires begins with Petronella Stone, known as Pet, babysitting her nephew due to both parents being out of town. She finds herself a bit surprised to see that the neighbors are out of town and have rented out their home to a group of people (Marguerite Argeneau Notte and her husband, Julius, among others) vacationing. She’s also surprised when her nephew tells her that the neighbor across the street has company who doesn’t seem very nice and he’s a bit worried about the elderl ...more

I love this series, it’s one of the few authors I buy new when they come out, normally I wait for the price to go down but since this is the series that got me into vampire romance and I love love love the series, I just can’t wait.
This was good a great story as usual but seemed way too short and she didn’t go into as much details later in the book where normally she would have. Once the major excitement was over I had thought there would be more in a way of explanat

Originally posted at Vampire Book Club

The last thing Santo Notte expects to find when he’s called away to investigate a possible sighting of the dreaded Dr. Dressler is to come across his life mate. Even more unexpected is the fact that she’s already familiar with Immortals.

Petronella “Pet” Stone is babysitting her nephew while her sister and brother-in-law are both out of town when she crosses paths with a group of Immortals renting the house next door. Not only is this a shocker, but it als

I love the Argeneau vampires. Oops, sorry, Immortals. They are so different and make more sense than other types of vamps. They are something that could actually happen. This one is about Santo Notte, Julius’s nephew.

When Santo and some of his cousins arrive with Margarite to investigate a rogue sighting in Albany, he finds out one the neighbors knows more about them than expected and he can’t read her.

Petronella is adorable and ends up turning Santo’s world upside down. He didn’t talk much bef
