Publisher's Summary

Nothing compares to the physical chemistry between an immortal and his life mate - or to the spellbinding thrills in a new Argeneau novel by New York Times best-selling author Lynsay Sands....

A simple promise to protect her friend’s infant son has turned Allie Chambers’ existence upside down. Caring for - and feeding - an orphaned vampire baby has been tricky enough. But as little Liam grows, so does his appetite. He needs more blood than she can personally supply. And when her attempts to steal from a blood bank go awry, Allie wakes up surrounded by doctors, cops...and the gorgeous, mesmerizing Magnus, who she can neither trust nor resist.

Magnus never expected to find his life mate breaking into a blood bank. Clearly, Allie is already entwined with his world - in deeper, more dangerous ways than she realizes. A band of vicious rogue immortals is in pursuit, and Magnus’ first task is to keep her safe. His second: to awaken her to mind-blowing pleasure, and hope she’ll accept the life, and the passion, that only he can offer.

A fun listen

Setting: Toronto, Canada Contemporary
Genre: Paranormal, suspense, rom-com

Allison was given care of vampire baby Liam by her neighbor, who immediately committed suicide by explosion. For the 4 years since then, she has been moving place to place, one step ahead of the nest of vampires Liam’s mother had escaped from. The only thing Allie knows about vampires is that they survive on blood, so she has been feeding the child from her own veins for four years. Finally, desperate - and anemic - she takes a job at a blood bank. As the story opens, Magnus has come from England because Marguerite Notte has found a possible life-mate for him (Allison) only to find that she has been arrested for attempting to burgle her place of employment.
The plot is focused on convincing Alison that vampires are called immortals, and most of them are good, as well as keeping Allison and little Liam safe. There is a rather extended visit with characters from previous entries in the series when they hide in the town of Port Henry where many of the couples had relocated. But you do not need to read those to enjoy this one.
I have purchased all the other books in the series on audio, but returned many of them due to the poor quality of the narration. Some of the readers were not into the job, and others were inconsistent from one book to another. This production, however, is performed by Amanda Ronconi. I am familiar with her work with several Audible productions of Molly Harper’s series, most of which I enjoy immensely. She does not do a good British accent, and I am pleased to say that she did not even attempt it with Magnus (he wasn’t originally from Britain, and had in fact lived many different places). The performance was definitely 4.5 stars, the story is also 4.5, and in Kym math, that’s a solid 5.

Wow! Every time!

Immortal Born moves quickly and has pretty realistic reactions to the abnormal situations presented. Enough romance, enough action, far better than a good read!

I love this series!

I have all of the books in this series, it is nice having them on audible. I enjoyed this read immensely. Very good book, it was nice having the earlier characters like Elvie and getting back to Port Charles.

Love this series!

interesting continuation of the story about the rogue hunters and the bad guy, Abidon. a return to some of my favorite, past characters. Argeneau series is one of my favorites. they always make me laugh out loud. don't expect the perfect literature piece, it's vampire chick-lit! fun, quick and a bit scary

Great match

I love both Lynsay Sands and Amanda Roconi. I was excited when I saw that Amanda was narrating. I was not disappointed. The story had some spiritual theme about rebirth and immortality. I appreciated the lessons about how with transformation there is pain but it is worth it. We will have immortality in Heaven but we struggle here on earth.

Really enjoyable story :D

4-4.5 stars

This was a really good story. I liked both Allie and Magnus and enjoyed their story. I did finished reading this the other day and didn't get a chance to review it right away (and I'm a little short on time now) so this might be a bit briefer than most of my reviews.

Allie is a web designer that gave up her life to raise the child of a friend who died. The catch is, the friend was a vampire and her child is also a vampire (at least that's what Allie thinks they are) and Allie is having to feed her adopted son with her own blood and it's getting to the point that she can't go on. In desperation, she gets a job and a blood bank to steal some blood. But then she passes out from her weakness in the middle of the job.

Magnus is an Immortal, a type of vampire originating in Atlantis that's made by the use of nanobots. He works as an enforcer, a warrior that takes out the rogues of their kind that prey on humans. Magnus is a good guy and has been waiting to find his life-mate for a very long time.

Magnus and Allie's beginning is a bit difficult because of a couple reasons. First, the "vampires" (aka rogues) that her friend escaped from are still after Allie and her son and she thinks anyone with glowing eyes are bad. Second, Allie's background makes her reluctant to get into a relationship (I didn't totally buy that part but ok). Because of these issues, Allie and Magnus' start is more planned and less spontaneous than normal. But as with all the books in this series, the nanobots are right and Allie and Magnus are made for each other so by the end, they're totally gone for each other and planning out their HEA together.

Overall, this was a very enjoyable story. I liked Allie, even if I wasn't completely sold on her reasoning at times. Magnus was a good guy and good hero and I liked him. Overall, this was a very good story with likable character and it was engaging so I'd recommend it. :)

Needs new editor and publisher

I love this series but it’s clear the editor is not very good... I have read from book one and there are still clear mistakes that loyal readers will pick up. I noticed at least three or four in this book but the most obvious was when Etienne was referred as Victor’s brother and he is really Victor’s nephew. And it bothered me that Katricia referred to Victor and Elvi as friends... both Tricia and Drina are Victor’s nieces...

However the best part is Amanda Ronconi did the audio... she is in my top 3 narrators... but what bothers me is the publisher or editor didn’t give her background..... Drina is supposed to have a Spanish accent...

I really just wish that the editor and publisher did better... and wish the author would be aware that long time readers would pick up on the mistakes.

It only give it 3 stars cuz of Amanda R. She is the best narrator and she should continue to do the narration for future books.
