Once bitten, twice shy, and sexy P.I. Jackie Morrisey wasn't going there again. Vincent Argeneau may be the hottest guy she's ever met, living or dead, but she's here to stop a killer from turning this vampire into dust, not to jump into bed with him.
Rule #2:Never kiss a vampire...it can be a pain in the neck.
Okay, so Vincent's had 400 years to perfect his kissing skills, and he does look rather tempting when he runs around the house shirtless. He's also charming, protective...did we mention he can kiss? Jackie needs to be on her guard, or else she'll have to come up with a new rule: If you're going to fall in love with a vampire, make sure it's a bite to remember.
Love in vein: listen to more tales of the Argeneau Vampires.

Love the book but again this narrator sucks. Theres a strange cadence to her reading. She seems to pause in the strangest places. The guys do a better job with this series.
I agree with earlier reviews. Lynsay Sands is a good writer, but this narrator sounds over breathy and robotic. I will not download the next if it is a the same one...
Great writer but I edited out the sex, it gets way to detailed. I also think this book could be narrated better by someone not so robotic sounding. She sounded like she had a computer voice at times.
Either You should refund all of Victoria McGee's books, or offer a new narrator for free.
I tried to just skip through the book so I could get the jest of the story, but that was even too Torturous.
Please, re-record all of McGees books and offer them to those of us who have purchased them.
The book was great; however, I was very disappointed in the reader! Her voice was too monotone and seemingly uninteresting. I did not even finish the audio book and instead purchased the hard copy to read.
Thank you for allowing me to express my opinion!
I thought this was a great book, and the narration was pretty good as well, I like the voice. The story is a love story but it has a twist on it, if you like vampire romance with a little bit of thrill to keep you on your toes then you will like this book.

The story is getting really formulaic; mortal bumps into a gorgeous immortal, instant connection that one or both half heartily resist, together they overcome a problem, in the end they realize they are in love, one or both spend a chapter or two hung up on stupid paper thin neurosis and self esteem issues only to proclaim their love and start planning a wedding.
Maybe, only until I find a better author.
To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.
I enjoyed this story. Vincent the poor vampire who has to get his meals on wheels. Jackie and Tiny lost control of tthe case when uninvited guests show up and just sorta take over the guarding business. However, Jackie still got in trouble, so much so she became the newest vampire, but the shocker was who her master was. Blew me away! Totally loved Marguerite, one cool lady. Can't wait for her story.
The story was 4 stars but the narrator was worse than horrible. I forced myself to listen because I paid for the audiobook. I will NEVER buy another audiobook narrated by this woman. Avoid this narrator at all costs.
The only major problem with audio books is their dependence on the skills of the narrator. A good book can be ruined by a bad narrator and a mediocre book can appear better by a great one.
The books narrated by Ms. McGee tend to fall into the former category. To give her her due she has gotten better since the first book in this series. She finally has some character differentiation, which helps a great deal. She has also gotten better at correct pronunciation of many of the words she used to butcher. However her pacing and her actual speech patterns are repetitive and irritating. For example in nine sentences out of ten her voice pitch drops and her pace slows at the end of each sentence.
I had intended to skip the books she narrates in this series, but my mother loves the series so much as to ask me to get them, so I did. But I will not start any further series in which she provides narration.
As far as the book, itself is concerned, I did enjoy most of it greatly. The one part that irritated me greatly, though, was the denouement. I understand why it was written in that way, but what human would ask questions about "how" before asking questions about "why?"
I've read these books and enjoyed them, it is a great pity the narrator is so poor.
