Publisher's Summary

Has this immortal finally met her match?

Rogue hunter Drina Argenis (from the Spanish side of the Argeneau family) has been many things in her years as an immortal, but bodyguard/babysitter to a teenage vampire is something new. There's an incentive, however: the other vampsitter, Harper Stoyan, may be Drina's life mate.

Trouble is, having just lost a life mate, Harper is resigned to being alone. He's completely unprepared when sexy and unpredictable Drina bursts into his life to reignite his passions. Can Drina, with a little matchmaking help from their teen charge, tempt this reluctant vampire to take a chance?

Or will a dangerous, unseen renegade kill Drina and Harper's one chance at happiness?

Love in vein: listen to more tales of the Argeneau Vampires.

    "Love the Argenueau Series"

    I always love the Argenueau stories. This one is as good as the rest. The shopping trip to walmart was SO funny. The adjectives "wryly and dryly" were way overused but the story line is great.

    Story
    "Port Henry is revisited…"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend this book to a friend, but I believe I would recommend them to read it for themselves over listening to the audiobook. Though Paul Christiansen is vastly better than Victoria McGee, she still isn't as good of a narrator, as I believe this series deserves.


    What other book might you compare The Reluctant Vampire to and why?

    I don't do the comparison thing & in this case, I'm not sure I've ever read another story that is comparable to this one.


    What three words best describe Paula Christensen’s performance?

    Not that great. Like I said previously, she is better than Victoria McGee, but not really what I think this series deserves. Her different voices for the different characters are very limited and she seems to reuse and even start fresh with each book reusing voices from previous books.

    "Great series"

    I have read/listen to every argenue book written ,this one was so refreshing. The author didn't have to explain the Origin of the immortal the characters were well written and felt real..
    I loved the stinky cat situation. That mad me laugh. Oh and Walmart scene was great also.
    If you like intrigue and a sweet love match with a little humor Then this book is for you.

    "Good performer - reluctant story"

    I am still not sure who the reluctant vampire is, but I was definitely a reluctant reader. The whole "Marguerite says you are life mates" line is getting very old.

    Despite the story being rather long in the tooth (pun totally intended), the performer did a great job with the female voices and accents. I don't know why all her male characterizations have to sound so Forrest Gump-like to me, but they do. Just because a fellow with the name Tiny is a big buy, it doesn't mean he has to sound like he's punch-drunk.

    I will say that I learned that skunks are native to North America, but you'd think even a European vampire would've seen an episode or two of Looney Tunes in her long lifetime and realized that odd flat looking kitty with the white stripe down its back is, indeed, Peppy LePew!. That part in the book was hilarious.

    "Good"

    Not a bad story...I will continue to listen to Lynsay's Vamp stories because they are reliable in that I know I will overall enjoy the listen...good Narrators, decent story lines...but always a little preditable...but safe....meaning I know it won't be a wasted credit to use on one of her books...Usually aren't my favorite stories, but I enjoy them...

    "Great Read! Has it all..."

    This is probably one if not my favorite book in this series so far...I have really enjoyed this series the way the characters build on each other and old characters are brought back to help new characters. Ms. Sands incorporates all the emotions and always makes for a good read or listen. Can't wait to start the new one.

    "Enjoyed this Book"

    I have picked through the series and listened out of order and I really enjoyed this one. At first the narration on one of the main characters bugged me a bit, just a bit slow in delivery. But I like Drinna and the others very much. Considering Book 16 now.
