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 going on and it was done in a way that completely fit in with the story and didn’t feel like added spots of background

This review was originally posted on Addicted To RomanceI received this book for free from Avon in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

Immortal Born is the newest installment of the Argeneau series and its book #30 and I can hardly believe how big this series has grown over the years and even though I wouldn’t say that Immortal Born is my favorite of the series, I had such a fun time in reading this one here. It’s a bit different

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.
Until one night she is attacked by the bad guys who have been stalking her

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 ...more

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)

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

I know I start off my reviews about the Argeneau series the same but, this is the 30th book in the Argeneau series and I am amazed that there aren’t plot repeats. Now, was this one of my favorites? Unfortunately, no. After following the series for so long and loving all the Argeneau’s, there were errors that really stood out. Also, it felt like there was a lot of filler in this story just to get it from point A to point B. I was thrilled with the story line and with the characters but,

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 they could

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.

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

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!!

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.

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 ...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.

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 of her

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 although there

I Picked Up This Book Because: Continue the Series

The Characters:

Allie Chambers:
Magnus B:
Liam, a ton of Argeneaus

The Story:

I love the characters in this series and the author’s writing style. I love that I can read out of order (unintentionally of course) and not be lost in the series. Allie, Magnus and Liam are wonderful additions to the story and I hope we get to see a lot more of their little family in the future. Really I just hope this series

This is probably in my opinion the best book in the series. It had so much more going on than the others. But was really good. Leaves room for a spin-off too if she decided to go that route. Can't wait till the next book and it hasn't been that long since it came out.

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*

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 are) and Allie is having

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 never has.

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.

And oh, DJ spoke perfectly normal English when we met him so why would he need to learn to use contractions? He's just a bit over a century; not a millennium.

And the whole hymen discussion happened a while back, and it was said that no; it wouldn't grow back. Now they're saying

Allison was given care of vampire baby Liam by her neighbor, who immediately committed suicide by explosion. For the 4 years since then, she has been moving place to place, one step ahead of the nest of vampires Liam’s mother had escaped from. The only thing Allie knows about vampires is that they survive on blood, so she has been feeding the child from her own veins for four years. Finally, desperate - and anemic - she

Does this book deserve more than 1.5 stars? probably and I probably would have liked it more if I had read any of the other previous books in the series but HOLY SHIT was I bored.

I didn't hate this completely, but it reminded me that the series is sooooooo long in the tooth at this point, it's practically impossible to keep track of except by the diehard stans.

In the 5,982,457 version of the Argeneau immortal (don't call them vampires) romance, Hero A meets Heroine B, his potential life mate. We rehash what makes a possible life mate - can't read them or control them, suddenly hungry for food, other can read you, and the sex is so ahmazing you pass out.
