Fate gave her fangs, but only Victor Argeneau can show her how to use them ...
From the Back Cover
Fate gave her fangs, he'll show her how to use them . . .
Ever since an accident turned her into a knockout vamp, Elvi Black's been catching her z's in a coffin, staying out of the sun, and giving up garlic. She knows there's more to being undead than what she saw in Dracula, but she can't very well ask her mortal friends about proper biting etiquette. When her neighbours place a personal ad for her in the local paper, she never imagined she'd meet Victor Argeneau, a vampire who could have his pick of women - dead or alive.
Rich, powerful, and drop-dead gorgeous, Victor's the perfect man for a novice neck-biter like Elvi. He's willing to teach her everything he knows, but he'll have to do it fast. Someone's out to put a stake through Elvi's new vamp life, and only Victor can keep her safe - and satisfied - for all eternity.

Taken aback with the ad that they assume is an inane joke by a mortal, the Vampire Council sends agent Victor Argeneau to investigate and if necessary ki11 the individual. When he meets Elvi he knows he found his soulmate and much more as shockingly she has a town filled with humans willing to di3 to keep her safe even as someone else who read the ad wants to teach her one particular aspect of being a vamp, a stake through the heart.
This a terrific amusing supernatural romantic suspense due to the desperate antics of the beleaguered heroine who feels like a newborn without adult supervision trying to hide what she has become. Victor is a strong courageous individual who besides mentoring the rookie risks his soul to keep his forever mate safe. The support cast enhances the overall tale especially the townsfolk who add a unique twist and the slayer. Sub-genre fans will enjoy Lynsay Sand's enjoyable tale and seek her previous winning vampire romances or I'd also recommend reading Tino Georgiou's bestselling novel...The Fates...if you've read all of Sand's books.
It's about a girl who funnily enough becomes a vampire by accident, goes back to her small town and is accepted by her town for what she is. A non threatening vampire, with no idea how to be a vampire other than what she she learn from horror movies. And without guidance she and her friends put quite a few feet wrong. They also attract attention causing Victor to be sent to check out this woman bring al kind of unwanted attention to vamps in general.
In all honesty I expected this to be terrible, but it made me smile, kept me reading and I do have to say I enjoyed it. Not every book can be great but it's good enough. I will be giving some other Lyndsay Sands a go, good holiday reading...
When Victor and DJ arrive they realise the situation is a little more complex. Three more single vampires turn up in response to the advert and it's clear the entire town knows about and loves Elvi, the female vampire. It's also clear she has no idea about what being a vampire means and has gained all her information from the film version of Dracula; She doesn't realise that she can eat food, go out in daylight, sleep in a bed not a coffin and more. Most of the book seems to be about Elvi learning the true nature of her vampire status whilst the four 'suitors' and DJ follow her around, trying to keep her out of trouble and wondering whether they are her 'lifemates'. But someone seems to be attacking Elvi with arrows and it's up to them all to look after her and to try to find out who is trying to kill her.
This book is rather similar to several of the other Argeneau Vampire books in that the entire content of the book is pretty much about the new vampire learning what it means to be an Immortal. It's particularly noticeable in this book where we have Elvi learning to drink out of blood bags, learning some of the laws, finding out about things she can still do and still playing her part in the community of Port Henry.Read more ›
Victor Argeneau (finally we get Victor's tale!) has lived alone for centuries, having lost his beloved to vampire hunters. Since then, his sole focus has been hunting down rogue vampires to eliminate them, so no other innocent vamps are slaughtered for their misdeeds. His attention is drawn to Elvi when her friends place a want ad for a male vamp, matchmaking the objective. Victor isn't sure it's a real vamp or someone just playing a joke, so he goes to check it out. He is shocked to learn the whole town is aware that Elvi is a vampire, but more importantly, Elvi is real and just what his heart craves. However the vampire council dedicated to keep a low profile for the good vamps, sees this situation as something that cannot go on.
Lynsay Sands takes a chance giving us not young and beautiful vamps, but older ones, and the risk is endearing, once again keep this series fresh and original. The problem with any series, is to conjure that vital spark that made it special to begin with. Each time, Sands does just that.
Fans will be very happy campers as another Angeneau tale comes in January and February, giving you three in a row.
