Rule #1: Never get involved with someone who won't be there for you when the sun comes up. Once bitten, twice shy, and sexy PI Jackie Morrisey wasn't going there again. Vincent Argeneau may be the hottest guy she's ever met, living or dead, but she's here to stop a killer from turning this vampire into dust, not to jump into bed with him.

Love the book but again this narrator sucks. Theres a strange cadence to her reading. She seems to pause in the strangest places. The guys do a better job with this series.

After 700 years of life, Marguerite Argeneau finally has a career. Well, the start of one, anyway. She's training to be a private investigator, and her first assignment is to find an immortal's mother. It seemed simple enough, until Marguerite wakes up one evening to find herself at the wrong end of a sword. Now she realizes she's in way over her head.

I've read the book several times but this narrator sucks! She goes way to fast, not giving you time to enjoy the story, has this phony 'breathy' voice. There's very little difference between the dialogue and the descriptions and she makes Tiny sound like he's retarded. I've read all the Argeneau books but didn't like any she's read. The guy reading the others is better. I know everyone cant be as great a Barbara Rosenblatt ( listen to an Amelia Peabody book) but there must be better readers then this one and that's all this, is is someone plodding along, reading words on a page with very little performance involved. When she read my favorite parts of the book I almost didn't recognize them. I'd be willing to buy the book all over again if they got a decent reader. If I hadnt read the books first I'd think this book stunk. It's an insult to Lynsay Sands.
