    Kidnapped! When Jeanne Louise Argeneau left work, she never thought she'd end up tied down by a good-looking mortal. More attracted than annoyed, she quickly realizes there is more to her abductor than meets the eye. One desperate act leads to . . . Love? Paul Jones has need of a vampire, and only Jeanne Louise will do. He just has to convince this beauty of a Vamp to help him . . . never imagining that he would fall in love. But with law enforcement hunting them, their time together is running out .

    Story
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    No one, or atleast they will wish they hadn't if they did purchase it.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Ms. Christensen did a horrific job narrating this book - she read without any kind of emotion at all. She read in spurts - one line, stop. One line, stop. Again, no emotion or flow at all. Her attempt trying to create other voices for the other characters was even worse. Why didn't Ms. McGee read this story?


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Total disappointment! If the narrator wasn't bad enough, the plot for this story was even worse. Jeanne Louise (JL) gets kidnapped. JL doesn't even try to escape; in fact, she just goes a long with the whole thing. All for the chance the kidnapper is her life mate and for the life of the kidnapper's daughter? Okay, saving a little girl is a great thing, but does it take 9 hours and 45 minutes to do that? There is only so many times you can struggle with the - if I turn the girl, then I lose the chance at my life mate. JL repeats that over and over again until she figures out to change the kidnapper first, and then have him change the little girl. Again, doesn't take 9 hours and 45 minutes to come up with that. The story line dragged horribly; there was no adventure at all - no distress, other than trying to elude JL's family. Which by the way, the family should have found them much earlier then they did with all of their training, abilities and technological capabilities. They've found/caught other characters much quicker in other stories, but for some reason, just didn't seem capable this time? I hope Ms. Sands isn't just trying to pump out a book without really trying to develop the story first. Will there be ( or should I say, should there be) a next book in this series? It looks like Ms. Sands has run out of ideas based on the gripping story line this book had (lots of saracasim here). Don't get me wrong, I've truly enjoyed her other stories in this series. If her next story is as boring as this, I probably won't purchase anymore of her work. One more chance....mix it up! There needs to be adventure, intrigue, struggles, despair, hope, some comedic flubs along the way, hot interludes and a different narrator!
