The Argeneau family has a secret...one of their own is a rogue vampire!
Nicholas Argeneau was once a successful hunter who went after rogue vampires who broke the immortal law. Except no one has mentioned his name in the last 50 years, not since he turned into a rogue himself. But once a hunter, always a hunter. When Nicholas sees a bloodthirsty sucker terrifying a woman, it's second nature for him to come to her rescue. He had no idea he would also want to kiss her senseless....
One minute Josephine Willan is taking in a breath of fresh air, and the next sharp fangs are heading straight for her neck! Luckily, a gorgeous stranger saves her life...and gets locked up for his troubles. Can a man who kisses so lovingly and passionately really have committed the crime he's accused of? Jo isn't so sure...and she's determined to prove that this renegade hunter is worth fighting for.

I love Lyndsay Sands books now I have discovered a new dimension..audio books.
Kirby Heyborne is incredible.in his narration...wish he did all the Argeneau series especially Lucian and Leighs story. Thanks for many hours of pure enjoyment
I think this is my favorite one so far! I really liked Jo and her strength througout. She stood up for Nicholas and believed in him when noone else would. I may be a little bit old fashioned but I really like The "life" mate thing.
Can't wait to read some of the other book.
I've listened to a few of the Argeneau books, but this was my first in the Rogue Hunter series. This is book 3, and while it would be helpful to know some of the other Argeneau history, you don't need to read the others in this series to understand what's going on.
I was pleasantly surprised by the edgier story line than the more light-hearted Argeneau books...until the end, that is. I won't spoil it for you, but the end left me wondering if this was the vampire version of "who shot JR?" from the old Dallas TV show.
The performance by Kirby Heyborne was acceptable, though the pace of the narration was a little slow for me - not how I would imagine the characters would really sound. Most of the characters' voices weren't all that different, with the notable exception of Lucien Argeneau, which really stood out. I'd listen to Kirby do Lucien all day long.
I have most of these books in paperback but when the opportunity came to get them on Audible I jumped at a chance to listen to something funny and well written for those times I am not in the mood for something new and unknown. I have to admit that this book and the the one with Jackie and Vincent (A Bite to Remember) are my favorites due to the kicka** attitude of the female characters. I loved how Jo doesn't get sidetracked from what is important and when it comes time for her to learn the truth about vampires she still is hesitant but doesn't go into that "Oh no, I need to run away and act like an idiot" frame of mind. If you like a strong, intelligent, take no guff off anybody and see through to the truth lead female character? This book is for you. I love Nicholas and his way of dealing with his previous loss and accepting Jo as his new lifemate. As for my favorite scene - has to be Jo's "discussion" with Lucien towards the end of the book. She had me laughing out loud there. Nicholas and Jo's story flows right into Armand's story, they tie into each other and complete the story line. If you get this one, please make sure and get "Born to Bite" as well. Both very good stories. (Eshie fits the same female character style as Jackie and Jo.) As for Kerby Heyborne as a narrator - he did a good job. I didn't have any trouble listening and feeling like I understood the characters' voices or who was talking when. If you haven't checked out this series please do. Well worth your time and money.
I loved the relationship that developed between Nicholas and Jo! Lynsay writes with such perfect detail and personality you really get to know and attached to the members of Argeneau family.
Lynsay Sands is an excellent writer and story teller! All characters are well developed and have such distinct personalities. I have read everything she has published and eagerly wait for more!
I love Lyndsay Sands books. Kirby Heyborne is great in his narration. Great story with great characters and plots. Thanks for many hours of enjoyment.
Finally, a decent narrator for this series! Kirby Heyborne is a new narrator for me but definitely goes to the top of the list.
Im in love with the series. Great story line great details and the characters are easy to fall in love with as well this novel did leave a little bit of a hanging at the end but overall it was worth the credit!
Another awesome book by Lynsay Sands! This is another one that kept me on the edge of my seat. I had to listen while I cooked, while I exercised, drove, and showered. Haha, loved it! I'm anticipating starting the next book to get Nicholas' whole story! Hopefully a few things are revealed! Anyway, Lynsay doesn't disappoint!
Overall it is another good, solid book from Lynsay Sands. I just had a little more difficulty with the main characters than usual - but that is just my taste. If you are looking for another enjoyable book in the Argeneau series, with above average sex appeal tossed in, this is for you.
If you don't want a male lead that is a tad ridiculous - even bordering on silly in his efforts to "protect" his life-mate (just a bit over the top for my liking) this one is not for you. Common sense was just a bit lacking in Nicholas Argeneau IMHO. I also thought the development of Mortimer and Bricker as characters were a disappointment too - in comparison to their previous appearances.
This was an excellent audio book the reader really got into the characters and worked hard to make you believe that these people were really in the situations and when their life was in peril you really felt it!! The book itself is brilliant and i have since downloaded the first book of the series to start from the beginning! There was some plot lines left unresolved so i'm hoping that the next one will feature a glimpse into what needed to be resolved otherwise it'll be a bit disappointing.
