Under a Vampire Moon is the 16th book in the Argeneau series. Christian Notte’s mother, Marguerite, is definately up to something. While Christians mother is on her honeymoon, he receives a call that his band is needed to play at the resort. Marguerite is known for her abilities to sense life mates. Could Marguerite have found his?
At the age of 42 Carolyn Connor is at the end of a very long and very ugly divorce. To cheer her up her best friend, Beth, decides to take her on a vacation to St. Lucia. St. Lucia, unbeknownst to her, is a honeymoon hot spot with candlelit dinners and Caribbean music. Watching all of the young and happy couples is enough to make any divorced single women depressed. The only single guys on the whole island are half of her age and that just makes her feel even older. To her Christian Notte is just another young man who is too young for her comfort level. Christian is a member of the band playing at St. Lucia and when his cousin tells her he is gay and is in need of a beard she decides to go along. When Carolyn begins to have “dreams” about Christian (in a very naughty way) she wonders if it is time to start searching for someone to fulfill her needs.
Christian has found his life mate. She is skittish and uncomfortable with, what she believes, is an age difference. Of course, at 500 years old it is definitely NOT in the way she things. You would think being a 500 year old Immortal patience would be in abundance, but being forced to pretend he is gay is just plain torture. All he can think about is having his way with her. Can Christian keep it together and earn her trust enough to tell her the truth?
Under a Vampire Moon was another win by Lynsay Sands. In Lynsay Sands world vampires are not some creature of the night, they are the Immortal. They are scientifically altered humans from Atlantis. The Atlaniteans created nano’s to fight off disease and it worked much better than imagined. The nano’s keep their bodies at peak form and health. Forever. The downside is that they must drink blood to keep the nano’s active as they use more blood than they can make. I love her original take on vampirism. This is one of my favorite series and Under a Vampire Moon did not disappoint. The characters are well formed and unique. I love the way the flow of the story pulls me in and keeps a smile on my face. I would suggest reading this whole series, but I do think this book could stand alone. However, I think reading this book alone might cause some loss of depth in the story. I loved the twist at the end and cannot wait for the next Argeneau story!!
I give Under a Vampire Moon by Lynsay Sands 4 out of 5 Bullets!!
