Good read, much better than the previous book [Immortal Hunter]. Nicholas [introduced in the previous book] was a good hero and Jo was a more 'together' heroine than some of the others in this series. Unfortunately, to create the situations where our hero comes to her rescue the other Hunters have to appear pretty incompetent. [Let's just say I wouldn't want to rely on them to protect MY body from hungry bad guys...] And then there's another semi-cliffhanger ending which apparently is quite popular now but I find quite annoying. For me they'd be much better off just putting a teaser chapter in the back of the book.

I really enjoyed this one. Wish Lynsay Sands spent a little more time with Jo's and Nickolas romance, and yes the ending was abrupt. Loved the incident involving Lucian though. Still looking forward to reading her next Argeneau book.

Bleh! This book didn't do it for me. I've liked Lynsay Sands books in the past but this one missed the mark, in my opinion. The characters are two dimensional. You don't really get to know who this couple is or what their backgrounds are, where they're "coming from" etc. The plot is simplistic and boring. The chemistry between the h/h is flat...no fizz. I was VERY disappointed in this book.
I liked the book. The main character, Jo, was funny and fiesty. Nicholas was heroic. Didn't answer many questions you have about the series and added more. The end was abrupt. It wasn't a well planned cliff hanger. I enjoyed the story up until the end.
You would think after 12 of these books that I would grow tired of them. While they do have a very similar plot point, immortal finds lifemate, etc, each book and characters are very different and somehow each book ends up being fresh and fun.
I really enjoyed this installment in the Argeneau series. Jo and Nicholas were both great characters. I really loved Jo, she was so sassy and funny and smart. She kept Nicholas on his toes, and that's hard to do with someone who is centuries old. This one had the great twist of trying to figure out why Nicholas had become and rogue, and then trying to figure what exactly happened all those years ago, and if all the suspicious blanks could make a difference.
Overall, this book was light and funny, but still managed to be full of action and mystery. I love how the characters from other books in the series always seem to play into the new books so that you can see how each of their lives are progressing, without the story feeling overdone or becoming boring. If Lynsay Sands keeps making them so fresh then I'm sure to stick with this series for a long time to come.
