Publisher's Summary

Vampires don't exist...do they? Inez Urso is beginning to have her doubts. Her business associate Thomas Argeneau has some interesting traits, like an allergic reaction to the sun, excellent night vision, and not much of an appetite for food. And to top it all off, he just tried to bite her neck...but maybe that was a sign of passion. If so, she'd be happy to experience more, despite her determination not to mix business with pleasure. He's been waiting forever for a woman like her....

Well, if not forever, at least 200 years. Inez is the most beautiful woman he's seen in centuries. Those luscious lips, seductive curves, and her elegant neck...he just couldn't resist the temptation of one little bite. Now Thomas will do anything to convince her that only an immortal like him can satisfy her all night long.

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

    PNR is my prefered genre, but I also enjoy any lighthearted, funny, steamy stories. Listening to books helps me to do mindless housework.

    "Why so many bad reviews?"

    I don't understand why this book got so many bad reviews, if you've enjoyed the first 7 books in this series, you should enjoy this one as well! Each book can be read as a stand alone story, the author does well to explain enough so the reader wouldn???t be lost if done so, but there is a lot of back story about who???s who and their relationships in the other books. The narrator isn't the best for sure, but neither is he the worst either! My only complaint was how abruptly the story ended, that???s partly due to the writing, but the narrator didn???t modify his speed or cadence in which he was reading and basically ran the last sentence into the end credits!!

    This story chronicles Thomas Argeneau finding his life-mate and their search to find the Argeneau???s missing matriarch, Aunt Marguerite, who at the end of book 5 decides to become a P.I. and flies off to Europe on a case (she goes missing at the end of book 6). The story includes the usual ???vampire-(a-la Ms. Sands style) boy-meets-mortal-girl-who-turns-out-to-be-his-life-mate-then-proceed-to-get-it-on??? but also includes a great mystery laced with some pretty intense nail-biting scenes. Thomas and his life-mate Inez (a Portuguese import to Brittan) are lead on a wild goose chase throughout the story, and although we are left (mostly) satisfied with Thomas and Inez???s joining, the story as I mentioned, ends quite suddenly with no resolve to Aunt Marguerite???s situation. It appears the next book in the series is all about Marguerite, but there should have been some wrap up to that effect at the close of this book IMHO, but as I???m thoroughly engrossed in this series, I plan to continue to find out what has happed to her.

    Story
    "Another Winner from the Argeneau Family"

    What can I say!! This is Thomas and Ines' story, and it was LOL funny, had action and intrigue. When Thomas's cousins Etienne and Bastien enlists his help in locating their mother he becomes quite alarmed, after all Aunt Marguerite had raised him and it wasn't like her to go a day without checking in with the family especially with her only daughter due to give birth any day. The trouble starts when Thomas gets to his hotel room in England and finds that the blood bank wouldn't deliver the blood until much later and he needed sustenance now, so he bites Ines and finds out he can't wipe her memory and realizes she is his life mate. What is he going to do now??? The story progresses from there, Inez shows how resourceful she is in finding out things that Thomas is reluctant to discuss with her about Vampires. Inez takes everything in stride and agrees to continue to help Thomas look for his aunt, however it appears that someone has it in for Inez. With trouble brewing, and trying to locate his aunt, keep Inez safe poor Thomas has his hands full. The story was interesting from the beginning, had several LOL moments, and some scary parts too. A good entertaining read. Just that.....ENTERTAINING......not pulitzer worthy.

    "Amsterdam, I'm on my way!"
    Where does Vampires Are Forever rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Fun stuff. I love a good romp through Europe.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Smart girls are cool, and the nice guy wins!


    What about Rick Robertson’s performance did you like?

    A good narrator is almost as important as a great story. And while l may overlook a weak story line ( which this is not) a bad narrator will have me pushing the return button as fast as you can say, really?


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Who makes up these lame questions?

    "Horrible Narration"

    The story is probably good but thanks to the narration the heroine sounded like the mutant demon offspring of Lucille Ball and Ricky Ricardo. DREADFUL!

    "Enjoyable"
    What did you like best about Vampires Are Forever? What did you like least?

    The book Is about what you expect if you have read the 1st 7 books in this series. What I didn’t like was Inez , it was the first time I ran across character in her series that I wished wouldn’t have made the transition.
    I think my dislike for her started when she was first introduced, but it really surfaced when she took so long to pull the knife out of Thomas Back… Really he’s lying there bleeding unconscious and she does everything she can think of including having a couple of drinks before she just pulls the damn knife out of the back of someone she is supposed to love. Really??
    And when the white haired guy broke into the house and threatens to kill her …the house that was full of people , but she doesn’t call for help knowing that Thomas and Bastian are there (as well as at least 5 other) instead she decides to have a conversation with guy.. I swear I wished he had just taken that sword and sliced her damn head of right there in the kitchen…


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    guess i'll read book 9


    What does Rick Robertson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    he was ok.. i kinda dread reading the next book after hearing how bad the narrator is.


    Could you see Vampires Are Forever being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    no i could not


    Any additional comments?

    fnd Thomas a new life mate.

    If you could sum up Vampires Are Forever in three words, what would they be?

    I have to say suspense, romance and intrigue.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Thomas because he is such a protective boy scout when he finds his life partner.


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

    Not sure, but I did enjoy this one.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Immortal Kiss

    If you could sum up Vampires Are Forever in three words, what would they be?

    Funny, surprising, romantic


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Inez. She was clever and forthright. For once there is a heroine that is open with her feelings. Her accent by the narrator was equally refreshing


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

    No.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Laughed out loud several times!


    Any additional comments?

    Lyndsay Sands is a great writer with many facets.

    "Really enjoyed"

    I've read some books by Sands and from her Argeneau series, I was a little dissapointed with this book from her series, but still enjoyed. Would have rathered seen Thomas with a more outgoing and fun female since his character come across like that when he is featured in the other books.
