A determined matchmaking vampire matriarch finds the true lifemate for her 500-year old son, and hilarious hijinks and steamy sensuality ensue! Marguerite Argeneau-Notte, an extremely beautiful, and very well-preserved, centuries-old vampire honeymoons in the Caribbean with her second husband and eternal soulmate, Julius Notte. When Marguerite meets Carolyn Connor, a fortyish vacationer trying to recover from a disastrous marriage, she immediately recognizes the perfect woman for her son, Christian. Marguerite maneuvers to have Christian and his band play at the hotel resort where they are staying, and her plan begins to unfold. However, after having read Carolyn's thoughts on life, love, men, and marriage, Marguerite decides to bring Christian and Carolyn together slowly so that Carolyn will be more accepting of the situation. After all, not only is Christian a gorgeous, rich, and ageless vampire, he appears to only be about twenty five, as do all the immortals. Carolyn is a shade over forty, with self-esteem issues and self-doubts aplenty. In order to ease Carolyn into the relationship, a scheme is hatched where Christian is presented as a gay man in need of a "lady friend" in order to hide his sexual orientation. With some "adjustments" to her thought processes, Carolyn agrees, and the sweet and sexy comedy capers begin to unfold. Two things made this book work for me: the smart and sassy humor of Lynsay Sands, and the very appealing character of Carolyn. Underneath all the vampire bling-bang, and makin' whoopee, many women will identify with Carolyn, and that's what makes this paranormal romance above the norm. I haven't read all the entries in Lynsay Sands enormously popular and successful "Argeneau Series", but I have enjoyed each one that I have read very much!
