Lucian Argeneau, hunter of rogue vampires, has been alive for over 2,000 years, and there's very little to excite him anymore. Food has become tasteless, sex is ordinary. Then Leigh drops into his life. Suddenly, he finds himself craving coffee...and imagining the sassy brunette atop the black satin sheets on his nice big bed. It's Lucian's job now to enlighten Leigh on the inner workings of being immortal - and tutoring her is igniting a fire in him that hasn't burned in centuries.
But until they stop a renegade bloodsucker from destroying the human race, passion will have to wait!
Love in vein: listen to more tales of the Argeneau Vampires.

I Love this story, I love how it slowly broke down Lucian's walls and he fall in love. I have 5 other books in this series and love them all but this was my favorite.
This book in the Argeneau Series was my favorite so far! I love Lucian, he seems the sexiest of all of the family and the story had the best ending! Although I do still love A Quick Bite, and I love how Lisianna and Greg are tied into this story!
I really like this series and can't wait for the hunter books to be released on audio. I enjoyed the read and look forward to listening too.
I found this audio light and enjoyable. The story line was as most in this series, however more enjoyable, light and funny. No ego hang ups etc. It was refreshing to listen to both Lucian and Lee's perceptions throughout the audio, loved Julian. Narration was good i felt a more vibrant narration would have given the story a bit more zing.
I read a lot of romance novels around the subject matter of vampires. This was a refreshing twist to some of the attributes of being a vampire.
I've listened to several of the Argeneau books and this one is by far the best yet! I liked that the female lead was not wimpy and not intimidated by the age and strong personality of the male lead. The narrator does a good job - much better than the narrators on previous books in this series. While this author includes humor in each, the narrator was able to really bring that humor to life and I honestly laughed out loud (especially in the initial scene with Julius) at Lucien's difficulties with the modern world. I liked that he was a bad-ass, but not in a rude way. Overall, a very good read....
Of Course I would listen again, I listen to all here books so far at lest 2- 3 times. It helps pass the day by and I enjoy listen to here the stories while walking, resting, and just for the fun.
my favorite character in this novel is Lucian. It was neat to see the stern and athortian go through denial, recognition, and finally make the same sort of life mate mistakes everyone else made. Linsay done a total awesome job with this book.
He is way better at personalizing the characters that gave them more real feel to their vocie then I could. Thanks Rick.
Yes, but my schedule made me stretch it out to a week. But I still enjoyed and will be listenting to it again when I go on a mini vacation.
Lynsay, keep up the great work and looking forward to your next book in the life of these immortals.
love to escape in to my Books, Historical, Highlander Scottish Romance , Mysteries & Suspense , Time Travel the Classics, Paranormal Romance
I recomend the Argeneau stories ubsolutely,positively . Because they are the best, lighthearted and entertaining storries. I read or lissen to them over and over again when I feel a bit down and they pick me up each and every time.
I can not just pick one out of the story I Love Lucian's way and behaviour it is just so funny
you cant go wrong with the Argeneau's
The story is great fun and different from each of the others. That's what I enjoy about the entire series - an entirely different take on vampirism. Fun romance and marvelous characters
I was dying to hear Lucian's story after his appearances in earlier books.
Jeffrey Cummings. He did a superb job with character development and delineation right down to those who barely appear in the two books he narrated. Robertson is much better than McGee, but way too weak for such a terrific set of characters.
Absolutely! And I did. I did want to know what happened next!
This series so far demonstrates so clearly the importance of an excellent narrator who is skilled at providing a voice to each character that is really appropriate to that character. The weakest character in this book was Lucian - not as written but at spoken. He came off as a rather spoiled, weak boy - not 5 thousand or more year old curmudgeon.
