ONE LUCKY VAMPIRE, by Lynsay Sands is the story of Jake &
Nicole, two people who do not want or need a partner in
their life. But Marguerite Argeneau feels that they could
possibly be life mates. The problem with Jake is he never
wanted to be an immortal and after 3 yrs. of being
immortal, he is still fighting what he is. Nicole is human
and going through a nasty divorce to a man that only wants
her money. Nicole has sworn off men for at least a year.
Marguerite has her work cut out for her getting this couple
She convinces Jake to be Nicole's
cook/housekeeper and not to tell her he is her bodyguard.
Then she convinces Nicole that she needs someone to cook
and clean for her, since she has so much work that she
is behind on. Jake's profession is protecting people, and
Nicole is a world famous painter, painting portraits of the
rich and famous. Marguerite goes to visit Nicole in Ottawa
to talk to her about painting a portrait of Christian and
Carolyn as a wedding gift. There she learns that Nicole has
had some very unusual home accidents, of course by reading
Nicole's thoughts. Marguerite is convinced that Nicole's
soon to be ex-husband is trying to kill her so he can have
all of her money, not just half.
This is where she
convinces Nicole she needs some help and that she knows the
perfect person. When Marguerite brings Jake to Nicole's
house, she is not expecting someone that is gorgeous and
very yummy. Jake is not expecting Nicole to be as pretty as
she is. This is where the story really takes off. There are
several "accidents" that nearly get Nicole hurt or killed,
but Jake is the one that suffers the worst of it. Towards
the end there is a twist that the reader will never see
coming and is fantastic.
I really enjoyed ONE LUCKY VAMPIRE, the story between the 2
main characters moved slower than other books in this
series, but for Jake and Nicole's characters it worked
beautifully. Ms. Sands really knows her characters and how
to write them. I liked their personalities and the issues
they overcame and in order to trust each other. I recommend
this book whether your fans of Ms. Sands, her Argeneau
series or just like a good romance, this book can be read
as a standalone. ONE LUCKY VAMPIRE is a good read and you
No one does wickedly funny and irresistibly steamy like New
York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands—especially in
this red-hot romance between a reluctant vampire and the
beauty who needs his help.
