    "Another excellent book by Sands"
    What does Paula Christensen bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Paula does a fantastic job of reading the book. I enjoy listening her. I usually do not care for female readers but she is great.


    Any additional comments?

    I have all of the Argeneau novels on tape and have enjoyed all of them. Lynsey is able to keep the stories fresh, creative and still moving forward. Keep up the great work.

    "Love every part of this book!!!"
    What did you love best about The Lady Is a Vamp?

    I loved the way the author developed the love story between the characters. This book reminded me of another book Vampire Interrupted. The book shows the ups and downs to relationships. Also, it had some old characters that I love hearing about.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I like the way the main characters meet immediately. Although he did kidnap her, there wasn't a build up to before they are together so the main focus was on the two of them and eventually other characters from previous books make their way into the story.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    This book is one that once you start it, you don't want anything or anyone to distrub you.

    Audiobooks are great tool in dealing with my ADHD. They limit distractions while listening and I don't have to sit still. PS. I can't spell

    "(2 Geeks + Desperation) * Margarite Magic = WOW"

    Even the socially inept need love but sometimes it takes a major felon to get them out of the lab. Great story with a few more, very welcome, twists than usual from Lynsay Sands. It quickly became one of my favourites in the Argeneau series. It was nice to see a more average than adonis male character for us male readers with a less than sculpted physique.

    I wonder who the Argeneau Grand Dame will turn her match-making x-ray vision on next.

    "LOVED It!!!! Another EXCELLENT Book By Ms. Sands!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    This is one of my all time favorite series by any author. I would recommend this book HIGHLY to anyone who loves vampires.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I loved Olivia (Livy) the most. She was just too sweet not to love! Of course Jean Louise has also been one of my favorite characters in this series and her father, Armand is my all time favorite overall, so it was great to get to see him again!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite seen was when Armand met Paul for the first time. It was great!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Jean Louise realized what she had done.


    Any additional comments?

    Lindsay Sands did an AWESOME job with this book! She is an AWESOME author and one of my favorites. I did have a few problems with a couple of the voices in the book..... Marguerite should have sounded younger instead of like an old lady (we all know vamps are not old) and Armand sounded off but I fell in love with his voice in his book. I would HIGHLY recommend getting the WHOLE series in this one. You won't be disappointed!

    "Sucker For Sands"
    Where does The Lady Is a Vamp rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Not at the top. Maybe middle-high range.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Lady Is a Vamp?

    Possible Spoiler:









    I've read every book in the Argeneau series and have waited (still waiting) for Brickers story. The fact that he couldn't control Livy makes me wonder if she will be his life mate. Makes for a good book, what with all the awkwardness between Bricker, Paul and Jeanne Louise. Memorable indeed.


    Which character – as performed by Paula Christensen – was your favorite?

    Paula was great with all the characters.
    Other Argeneau female narrators were too . . . breathy.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, except I'm never really sitting while I listen.
    Entertaining nonetheless.


    Any additional comments?

    Great addition to the Argeneau series.

    "'SCORCHING AND DELIGHTFUL,' YOU BET!"

    Loved it--I didn't want this one to end!

    Book #17 brings back well-loved characters from earlier books, which is one of the reasons I enjoyed it so much. But don't shy away from this being your first-listen in the Argeneau series. Sands gives a good background summary early on in the book so you won't be in the dark. Then you can go back and start from the beginning.

    Paula Christensen did a decent job with the narration of the main characters, less so with the others. It was difficult for me to listen to the voices of Lucian, Armand, Andres, and Bricker without Rick Robertson or Kirby Heyborne narrating. And she pronounced Notte wrong.

    "All of Lynsay Sands' vampire novels are great!"

    Have not read or heard a novel by Lynsay Sands that I have not loved. I recommend both her vampire series as well as her historical. But WARNING: Prepare to laugh and enjoy yourself!

    "Always a winner"
    Where does The Lady Is a Vamp rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    At the top. I have allot of authors I love and read all there books. I have read all the other Argeneau vampire series and loved this book as much as the first in the series. Wouldn't hesitate to buy the next book in the series. I enjoy Lynsay Sands books so much I have pre booked her next book.


    What other book might you compare The Lady Is a Vamp to and why?

    Christine Feehan, dark series.


    Have you listened to any of Paula Christensen’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Not sure I don't really take much notice of the narrator unless I hate them. Then I note down who it was and make sure I don't get any more books narrated by that person.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes,
