Great Immortal Romance, can be read as a stand-alone.

I really liked this book from start to finish. This was the 30th book in the Argeneau series and the first one that I have read. I thoroughly enjoyed it without feeling like I missed anything at all in not reading any of the previous books in the series.

There was plenty of background information given to explain what was

Miss Sands has found a way to make Immortal Born a fresh new installment in the Argeneau Series..
With the added plus of getting to visit with so many characters from past stories. I adore getting a visit from family 😁.
Allie is a strong independent woman who survived a tragic childhood and will do anything for the people she loves, including raising her best friends son. Living a life of constant moving to keep him safe.

Let's be real. This read more like a book about Allie and Stella then Allie and Magnus.
*shakes heads*

No. Just no. I mean I'm all for a solid backstory but I need it to stay in the back!
It completely overshadowed the actual plot. And don't even get me started on the "romance" Ugh.

I was excited while reading this book to see that it revisits Port Henry and the characters from my very favorite book The Accidental Vampire.

The book synopsis gives you all of the important information, but what it fails to let you know is just how exciting this book really was, how convoluted the bad guys became and how sexy this read was going to be in thought and in the deed!

I also loved the fact that there was no cliff hanger the story was complete (view spoiler) ...more
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Immortal Born by Lynsay Sands is book 30 in the Argeneau Series. This is the story of Allie and Magnus. I did feel you could make this a standalone book if you wish to do so. Allie has been left the care of a orphaned vampire baby named Liam. But her attempts to keep the growing baby feed is not working so she thinks to break into a blood bank. The next thing she knows she wakes up with people around her asking questions. Magnus never thought he would find his mate breaking into the blood bank b ...more

I have been provided with a review copy of Immortal Born through Edelweiss for an impartial review. This is the thirtieth book in the Argeneau series and I didn’t think after thirty books in one series that you could come up with something new to say or a completely new storyline to take place. Well I was proven wrong this was just such a great book and I was just pleasantly surprised with this new story. I really enjoyed getting to meet these new characters and get to go along on their journey. ...more

Where was the usual Sans character chemistry?? I really enjoyed Allie and Mangus as individuals, but the bad guy and his lifemate had more chemistry than the main couple, and that’s just sad. The story was entertaining, if anticlimactic. I was really looking forward to this one and it, unfortunately, fell flat in the romance department.

It was fun seeing the whole crew back together, but it took more page time from Allie and Mangus, and TBH, they needed all the page time

Life has never been simple for Allie Chambers, but it's just become much more complicated by her need to fulfill her promise to care for her friend's now orphaned son. Babies are hard enough, but he's an immortal baby and as he begins to need more blood than Allie can provide him herself, she gets desperate and tries to rob the blood bank where she works. She wakes up surrounded by police and two detectives she recognizes as immortals and instantly fears, though one of them, Magnus, she finds in ...more

I love this series. When I read the synopsis I was very excited. I knew that this book was going to be great. What I was not expecting was the time shift. There are a couple of things that happened within this book that surprised me.

There are a lot of people from Port Henry that I have forgot. I think this book should have been maybe set released during the Port Henry miniseries. I thought this book was going to be more about the random vampire we were introduced in The Trouble With Vampires. With that

WOW, book #30? Who would have thought ? I have to say again that I miss those laugh out load earlier books that I loved so much, these newer books are more drama and violence with a dash of passion thrown in but they are still entertaining but in a much different fashion.

In this one Allie and Magnus are the lucky couple and there is a bit of a twist to this story that has not been used before (I say this because many of these newer books are somewhat similar) and it played well altho

Immortal Born was another adventurous installment in Lynsay Sands’ long-running Argeneau series which kept me enthralled from page one with its danger, and the wonderful examples of compassion and selflessness.

It’s pretty incredible that at book thirty in the Argeneau series I’m still entertained by the characters, and that the overall story arc continues to be interesting and engaging. But I think that’s something that Lynsay Sands does well with any
Sometimes the couple set up gets a bit old in a series this long, but with this book there is a fresh take, something I appreciated. Allie was interesting, knowing just enough about this world to be in danger and dangerous at the same time. Meeting the Argeneau gang was just what she needed to help her with Liam and to keep them both safe.

As Allie had a clue about vampires, learning about immortals didn't phase her too much. I liked that she didn't jump into a relationship with Magnus, in fact

Revoltingly stupid and no it can't be read as a stand alone unless you don't mind loosing all the threads, hints and backstory.
It's boring, absurd and really really stupid. Characters made no sense and were given personal stories that were then ignored.
There were thousands of people about whom you couldn't care less and were mostly noise.

Love this addition to the Argeneau family!!

Allie is amazing, with her willingness to step up and be mom to Liam and her mama bear is on point.

Marcus, an amazing hero, he is so excited to have a life mate but he is willingly to wait for Allie to accept a whole new world.

Their story is exciting and full of the whole family of Argeneau's, yes it can be read as a stand alone but it is fun to see characters from pervious books!!

Allie Chambers’ has discovered that her next door neighbor is more than she appears. Allie believes her neighbor and infant son are vampires. Even though she believes them vampires, she has become an intregral part of their lives. But when Liam, the baby, is left in her care she does everything she can to keep him safe and fed…even if it kills her.

Magnus never expected to find his life mate. So the shock of discovering her robbing a blood bank for an immortal child…he’s quite frankly shocked. N

This was a really good story. I liked both Allie and Magnus and enjoyed their story. I did finished reading this the other day and didn't get a chance to review it right away (and I'm a little short on time now) so this might be a bit briefer than most of my reviews.

Allie is a web designer that gave up her life to raise the child of a friend who died. The catch is, the friend was a vampire and her child is also a vampire (at least that's what Allie thinks they

I once re-heated up a potato in the microwave. It was delicious and I devoured it. THAT potato & I had more of a story and passion than %80 of Lyndsay Sands Immortal Born!
Seriously, the book was SO extensively full of boring, minor details that it ruined the bigger picture that would’ve been possible. There were like 30? pages or maybe 100 is what it felt like; about them all sitting around a table and eating omelets, drinking tea/water etc. blah blah blah...I mean, COME ON! *facepalm*

Hmmm... well, other than the apparent ditching of the family tree (it's not on her website anymore and here we have an error). I mean; last I read, Etienne was Victor's nephew and here it's stated that they're brothers.

Another Great story for the Argeneau series.

Magnus and Allie. Swoon

Allie and her son Liam are trying to stay one step ahead of some bad guys who keep finding them. Lucky for them they fall into the right Immortal hands. What Allie doesn't know is if she can trust these new Immortals, who promise her things she hasn't had for a long time. Yet, she wants to trust them, wants to believe that all this happiness that Liam has is the right fit. Trusting doesn't come easy for Allie. It nev

Enjoyed this story. I love the song, that Leigh changed the ringtones for on Lucian's phone and was laughing so hard, had to put my face in my pillow. The way Allie is giving Lucian all that he can handle. Allie is so much like Leigh, that reminds Lucian the real reason that he loves his wife so much, because she is a very strong alpha woman. Strong alpha men and women need just as strong alpha men and women as mates. Lynsay makes them seem so real. Love reading her stories about them. Magnus ha ...more

Too much catch up

I normally love Argeneau novels but this one wasn’t my favorite. It was okay but there was about 70% educating the reader about all things immortal beings and maybe 30% relationship/action. And I think I’m being generous with the 30%. I didn’t really get any real “feels” from the main couple either. I will still check out the next one in the series because maybe this was just a fluke.

Allie Chambers realizes just how hard it is to care for a vampire infant when she is forced to try and rob a blood bank to keep the baby fed. Little does she know that it put her on the immortals radar as a potential problem. Magnus has been waiting for a life mate for a long time. When Magnus meets Allie and recognizes her as his, he will do anything to keep her and the baby she cares for safe.

Verdict: This is the 30th book in the Argeneau series. If you like your stories quirky, quick, humoro

I swear if this author writes a crappy book I’d still give it a high rating.

I say that because by the end of the story I’m smiling and have this contented happy feeling inside me that leaves me wanting the next story or ready to reread the whole line of books in this series. Which I’m about to do.

My only complaint is that these books have become a quarter romance while the 75% left over are divided between the unnecessary descriptions of either food or settings/locations, the shenanigans of th

Allie is a human mortal who ends up befriending the pregnant vampire across the street, Stella. Once Stella gives birth to her vampire baby, Liam, Allie helps out by watching him sometimes. Stella finally reveals that she is on the run from the group of vampires that turned her and that they want Liam to raise him as an e ...more
