Okay, so Vincent's had four hundred years to perfect his kissing skills, and he does look rather tempting when he runs around the house shirtless. He's also charming, protective … did we mention he can kiss? Jackie needs to be on her guard, or else she'll have to come up with a new rule: If you're going to fall in love with a vampire, make sure it's a bite to remember.

The identity of the bad guy was a surprise to me, although I don't know how I could have figured out who it was by the clues given. The story moved along smoothly, and the new characters were interesting. I hope Tiny gets to be in more books, along with Jackie. Jackie does not like vampires. After being wronged by one she doesn't want it to happen again, but when Vincent Argeneau needs her help seh starts to get feelings for him after a few days.
Vincent needs Jackie to track down a sabateur who is sabotaging his plays. The only thing stopping them is the fact that it could be a vampire trying to get back at Vincent for doing somthing he doesn't even remember doing.
I like this book because I like vampires and this just further sparked my interest in them. It truly isn't a book I will remember clearly in a month or a year. Sands has made a wonderful world of vampires here. The Argeneau family is a hoot, and I really find myself wanting to know more about them. Sands gives and original and exceptional reasoning for the vampires. Her's is seriously one of my favorite explanations of vampirism. The problem is her previous books have felt exactly the same to me, change the name and place and the stories were redundant.
There was an interesting mystery to resolve and the romance was put off for just a little longer than normal. The funny parts weren't in every scene, but they were realy funny, unlike in the other volumes, in my opinion. The book has drawbacks. It still felt very formulaic. It wasn't very exciting. However, this book was my favorite Argeneau novel, after "A Quick Bite". As a woman working in the male-dominated field of private detecting, Jackie has had to work harder, longer, more efficiently, and more successfully than her male counterparts.
She takes crap from no one, handles her business discreetly and professionally, and prides herself on her resourcefulness and capabilities. Vincent Argeneau is a man of the theater! For four centuries he has worked to build his theatrical empire, his reputation, and a loyal following. For four centuries, with few exceptions, Vincent has little trouble enjoying the life and work he has built for himself.
The last several months have been a most decided exception to the four-century rule. Jackie has intention of seeing Vincent Argeneau as anything other than a client. Until things other than work begin to pop into her brain. With more than a bit of trepidation, and with a serious whack job on the loose and targeting her client, Jackie embarks on a relationship with Vincent. Accompanying Jackie is Tiny, one of my favorite characters in the entire series!
Tiny is steady, calm, quiet, skilled, and a wonderful balance to Jackie. He cares for her as much as Vincent does, but in a very different way. He is, by far one of the most endearing characters in the series. Vincent is a funny character for me, and one the author was able to totally change my opinion about. Vincent first appears in book four, Tall, Dark, and Hungry and comes off as a rather childish character. In this book, we see a much different, much improved Vincent.
He is actually quite mature, committed to his work and his employees, and interested in finding his life mate. In fact, Vincent is quite a likeable character and a perfect fit for the feisty and fiery Jackie.
What really pushed me over the edge with this book, was the big reveal at the end and the reasons behind all the awful! Though it is a tragic story, I really liked the dark turn that absolutely set this story apart from the rest of the series!
PI Jackie Morrisey previously dated a vampire and he broke her heart, this is a problem with her latest assignment with Vincent Argeneau where she's bodyguarding him. Someone is threatening him, killing his previous loves. However he's very tempting.. Yes it's pretty obvious what happens, but the investigation is also fun. Fun and quite readable. Sad, sad day. I always could rely on Sands, always, always Wow, I really hate to give a book of Sands a bad review and maybe it should get one and a half stars for the quick story at the end but this was bad, and I don't understand the 5 star reviews.
The Private Investigator is incompetent. She never goes over the background of all the employes that she meets. Doesn't even ask about the closest ones to Vincent.
Does put safeguards into place after the first break in so that a mortal guards the door? You have 6 vampires and the mortals answer the door? As some of the books go, the hero, Vincent, drags his feet to test whether he can read Jackie and find out if she is his lifemate. Too bad because if he had, maybe there would have been more sex and dreams, etc.. Then the reasoning behind the attacks is told and it is a total out of the left field reason.
The story line doesn't hold up to explanations on how things work for immortals. OK, immortals get stronger as they get older, so how does the 'bad guy' have so much mental control? Why in the end, with 5 old immortals, could they not just take over the other's mind?
Sex, I kept waiting as Sands can really put sex scenes out but None of the orgasmic sex bites, really none, and no fainting from the first immortal orgasm. Even Lucian passed out after his first with his lifemate because he had abstained for so long. Fun, where was the laughs. When I want a fun read, at least some laughs, I pick up a Sands.
Some of her books are more serious than others, but she always infuses a little humor. I think I laughed once and it wasn't the 'I can't stop laughing, I'm crying' that many of her novels have inspired but a chuckle.
An unresolved occurrence in the book, the guy who gets turned doesn't have any of the cramps and thrashing, screaming, etc They never talk to him again and you never hear about whether he is alright with it. You never find out why it didn't hurt him like turnings do. OK, so is there any good?
Well we meet some European vampires half way through and they have some character so further stories probably will be made. Then there is Tiny who is a mortal character. And we get to see who Marguerite leaves with to Europe. The only reason to read it would be for this, not a good enough reason. I would say to skip this one. I cannot believe I just said that about a Lynsay Sands book. And I don't know why the other reviewers rated this one so highly.
She is wary of any vampires and she knows of their world. The only one she can be around is Bastien Argenau who has treated her with respect.
