Sherry Carne was working in her office when a teenaged
girl barged in, looking terrified. The girl, Stephanie,
peeked through the two-way mirror and Sherry saw four men walk
in her store, seemingly looking for Stephanie. Stephanie
says they better make a run for it without delay, and the
teenager drags Sherry along with her outside the store.
After being pursued and shot at, they seek refuge in a
restaurant while waiting for Stephanie's friends, whom
she called in the meantime. Sherry is exhausted, scared
and confused, but for some reason she trusts Stephanie.
And that's the day when Sherry Carne learned that
vampires do exist.
The opening to THE IMMORTAL WHO LOVED ME is chilling, and
you know you're in for a great read right from the start.
Readers unfamiliar with this exciting series need not
worry, Ms. Sands inserts all the necessary information
when appropriate and in perfect doses. I am a long-time
fan and I always find exciting to read how it all started
because Ms. Sands' vampire mythology is so ingenious.
THE IMMORTAL WHO LOVED ME has a great premise which makes
it logical that Sherry trusts Stephanie, a vampire.
Sherry is a great character: she is a no-nonsense
businesswoman who speaks her mind and she has a caustic
sense of humour -- to sometimes hilarious results, as
witnessed when she meets Basileios. According to
Stephanie, Sherry is Basileios' life mate, that is a
vampire's ultimate true love. Stephanie is very engaging,
energetic, and her interactions with Sherry are so
authentic and fun! I do hope to see more of Stephanie in
the future; there is much to do with that character. I
loved that Sherry remained somewhat sceptical; she was
not hysterical, and she is willing to listen to the
Immortals. And then the kiss happens as Basileios
wants to verify that he and Sherry are indeed life mates:
that kiss is a sexy and sensual experience in Technicolor
THE IMMORTAL WHO LOVED ME feels so fresh, new and
exciting, it's hard to believe it's the twenty first instalment
in the Argeneau series. I believe my beloved
Immortals will be around for a long time still!
A few hours ago, Sherry Carne would have sworn that
didn’t exist. That’s before rogue immortals rampage
her store, leaving bloody chaos (literally) in their wake.
The kicker comes when Sherry learns that one of the vamps
the bad guys’ trail may be her life mate. Her head says
impossible. The rest of her takes one look at Basileios
Argeneau and has much more interesting ideas.
Whatever Basil expected in a life mate, funny, outspoken
Sherry isn’t it. But mind-blowing chemistry and instinct
don’t lie. They tell him something else, too—that Sherry’s
connection to the immortal world goes deeper than she
And that she’s in the kind of danger only Basil can save
from—if she’ll just trust him, now and forever . . .
