Buckle up--the argeneaus are back in a sexy, witty new novel from New York times bestselling author Lynsay Sands
Dante Notte has heard it said that love hurts. He just wasn't expecting it to run him over in an RV. Still, a punctured lung and broken ribs are nothing compared to the full-body shock he feels whenever he's near the vehicle's driver, Mary Winslow. He needs to keep her safe from their pursuers while he rescues his brother. Most challenging of all, he needs to claim this smart, stubborn woman as his life mate.
The naked, injured, insanely gorgeous younger man who clambered into her RV insists they belong together. If Mary wasn't feeling their incredible connection in every inch of her being, she wouldn't believe it. But now that the men who took Dante's twin are after her too, trusting her gut means risking her life for an immortal who's the very definition of a perfect stranger.

However this time she has come at it in a different way. It was very thorough and detailed as usual all the way through.
Of course there was the usual romance but without going into too much detail it was a delightful difference in the series and was most intrigued at the way things turned out.
Another fantastic book and most definitely recommended to anyone who likes this authors style of writing.
As I normally do with a Lynsay Sands novel, I dived straight in and kept on reading for hours. I love the world she has created and I love her writing style that is always filled with a great sense of humour.
I love that the mortal protagonist, Mary was sixty two and not like your average young, scantily-clad, female in her twenties. I thought that was a great twist and proved that no matter how old you are, immortal love doesn't care!
Overall, I liked the story but started to skip over the long explanations of Atlantis and the nanos, as I this isn't my first Argeneau novel! I was really pleased when two new characters were introduced; Russell and Francis. At first, when I read that they they same Argeneau name, I presumed that they were related and would both be future protagonists in there respective stories. Then the book introduced them as life mates - a couple. I was pleased by this. I've been thinking for at least 6 books that why are all immortals heterosexual, surely there should be so LGBTQ life mates in the mix. Then Russell and Francis started to explain how they met each other. I thought, I must have missed a book! Why haven't I read their story? I proceeded to look through my collection of Lynsay Sands novels and came up short.
I'm annoyed that there story has just been glossed over. Maybe I'm being an idiot and there really is their book out there, somewhere and I just haven't come across it but their inclusion in this story makes me feel like they are the "token LGBT" characters that have been added in.
I become even more annoyed when Francis became the stereotypical gay man, insisting that a pink t-shirt wasn't pink, it was salmon. Then wanting to take the female character clothes shopping and don't even get me started on the "fashion fabulous."
Overall, I liked the story and loved Mary and Dante, so despite it's faults, I will read the next book to find out, hopefully, what happened to Tomasso.
