Book Description

24 Nov 2009 Argeneau Novels (Book 3)

When Terri flew from England to New York to help plan her cousin Kate's wedding, she didn't know what she expected - but it certainly wasn't the Argeneaus.

Her new in-laws may seem a little strange, with the sometimes-chipper sometimes-brooding writer Lucern - Kate's fiancee - and Vincent, the wacky stage actor (she couldn't imagine Broadway casting a hungrier looking all singing, all dancing Dracula), but having just discovered how expensive New York hotels can be, suddenly their offer of accomodation looks much more attractive.

. . . and then there's Bastien. Even taller, darker and hungrier looking than the other two, just looking into his eyes is enough to make Terri admit she's falling for him. Surely she can put up with the Argeneau's odd habits for a few days - to stay in their luxurious penthouse apartment, with the lovely Bastien - if it lets her avoid New York's blood-sucking hotel prices!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lynsay scores big with another Argeneau tale! 1 July 2004
By Deborah MacGillivray HALL OF FAME VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Bastien Argeneau is a vamp in the grumpy mold of his brother Lucern (Single White Vampire), and his lovely curmudgeon ways was going to be put to the test, with the upcoming wedding of Lucern and Kate. Too lovey-dovey wrapped up with themselves, small details of the upcoming ceremony are slipping by them. Like the arrival of Kate's cousin, Terri.
Bastien has been living in the penthouse over the Argeneau offices, quite happily alone since Lucern had moved in with Kate. But that solitude is about to come crashing down around him as the wedding approaches. First Kate pressed Bastien into picking up Terri at the airport, since the loving couple had other business. Bastien has no problem with that request. It's the second favor Kate asks of her brother-in-law to be that puts the crimp into his quiet lifestyle - she needs him to put Terri up while she is in town for the wedding. Seeing no real problem putting her up for a day or two, Bastien agrees. Only after he commits to the arrangement, Kate informs him that Terri is coming earlier than the rest of her family - two weeks earlier! But it's too late to make other arrangements, because Terri is due at the airport within minutes!
Bastien has viewed the pending nuptials with mixed emotions: happiness for Lucern, disgust at their frequent public displays of being besotted and a wee dram of envy. Bastien is not about to voice this aloud fearing mommy dearest Marguerite will sharpen her matchmaking efforts. She has always insisted her children need to be mated with someone who brings the zest for living back and the Lissianne and Etienne married and Lucern well onto his way, her crosshairs has come upon Bastien and he is feeling her breath down his neck.
Bastien fears logistical problems in having Terri around for two weeks.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointingly ponderous 18 Jun 2005
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Bastien Argeneau is getting very tired of his brother's wedding preparations. Much as he loves Lucien and his bride-to-be, Kate, their demands are really intruding on his calm, ordered life. Now things are about to get worse: Kate's cousin Terri is flying in from England for the wedding and she needs somewhere to stay. In Bastien's penthouse.
So not only does he have to listen to his brother spouting about love and weddings incessantly, he's going to have to put up with sharing his home for the next two weeks. That would be bad enough for anyone used to living on his own; but considering that Bastien is a vampire and needs to drink blood regularly in order to remain healthy, it's a recipe for disaster. Oh, not that he actually drinks from humans - these vampires have it all sorted. Owning their own private blood-bank helps.
This is the third in Sands' vampire series, following Lucien and Kate's story in Single White Vampire and Etienne and Rachel's in Love Bites. Unfortunately, it feels as if it were written by a completely different author. Tall, Dark and Hungry has none of the frothy humour of the first two books. Instead, it is boring, repetitive and flat. It was a real struggle to finish. There's no humour this time - there are attempts at it, but all so ponderous that none of them work. Instead, as another reviewer comments, we are treated to page after page of descriptions of things we really don't need to know. Information is supplied in a mundane, uninteresting manner. Trivial details are given the importance of earth-shattering events. The book was incredibly disappointing.
Even the minor characters were tedious; I liked Chris, Kate's fellow editor, in Single White Vampire, but in this book he's a whiny pain in the [...].

4.0 out of 5 stars Amazing 21st century Vampire family books!!!! 27 April 2010
By Ms. C. A. Anderson VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really love this series of books, Sands manages to so convincingly create this family with its ups and downs while at the same time convincing us that they are vampires and living in the 21st century! Truly amazing.

This Book follows older brother Bastein, who when their father died took over the head of the family position and the business side. Over the hundreds of years he has been alives this has caused Bastein to become complacent with everything around him and as a result he has become a workaholic with no time for play. Then along comes Kate's cousin who is coming over for the wedding of Kate and Bastein's brother Lucern. And it goes from there, showing through the short time of Terri's stay how much Bastein comes back to life and falls in love with her. Of course, Sands always puts a twist to do with the vampire secret so that that the happily ever after is not so simple and this time is no different.

Sands is so funny in her writing, while this book is firmly a romance it has so much comedic value! I found my self laughing so much at some of the funny sayings and things that happen all through out this amazing series!

I really did like this book but my favourite is Single White Vampire so this is why I gave it 4stars instead of 5!

Take the time to get to know the Argeneau family through this outstandingly written series, you will not be disappointed!

3.0 out of 5 stars Shes done better 25 Jan 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As said repetative and quite a snore only read it as its refered to in another book. You could skip this and just read the others - A Quick bite is the one with Lissiana and Greg and is much funnier. Save some money and try one of the others

I had been looking forward to reading Bastian's story but it was not worth the wait. There was no humour, the storyline was none existent, not my sort of book at all.
