Has this immortal finally met her match?

Rogue hunter Drina Argenis (from the Spanish side of the Argeneau family) has been many things in her years as an immortal, but bodyguard/babysitter to a teenage vampire is something new. There's an incentive, however: the other vampsitter, Harper Stoyan, may be Drina's life mate.

Trouble is, having just lost a life mate, Harper is resigned to being alone. He's completely unprepared when sexy and unpredictable Drina bursts into his life to reignite his passions. Can Drina, with a little matchmaking help from their teen charge, tempt this reluctant vampire to take a chance?

Or will a dangerous, unseen renegade kill Drina and Harper's one chance at happiness?

    " I really enjoyed this story. I liked both of the characters, there was a lot of great dialogue, a bit of suspense, and Stephanie was adorable. The only thing that bugged me to distraction was the overuse of the words dryly, wryly, and solemnly and the detailed descriptions when boring stuff was happening. Stephanie's comments and actions were my favorite parts of this story and I really hope she gets her own book. "

    " I love these vampire books. I'm tired of these nanos being so smart, but other than that they are fantastic easy reads. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 1/30/2014

    " Lots of giggles in the first half of the book, I really like Stephanie's character. Another good addition to the series with more doors being opened for the future. "

    " love love love. defi itely one of the better titles in the series. drina has such a great spirit and harper has that ssweet broody thing going on that works so well on vamps. stephanies character was so wonderfully hilarious it was noce to see sands trademark humor back in full force. so glad too finally see a possible explanation for marguerites ability to find lifemates as i was just bitching about that in my last review but i would like to have seen it developed more hopefully it will be in the next one. the only other negatove thing i have to say about it is i saw the "twist" coming from a mile away "

    " Not much heft, but perfect for a lazy summer afternoon spent near the water when you don't want to ruin a more expensive book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jp | 1/18/2014

    " Not the best of the Argeneau series but did a good job of moving some of the characters along. I like she is opening admitting to the match making going on in the family and look forward to some of the remaining family and friends finding life mates. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rene | 1/18/2014

    " Drina and Harper are called in to babysit Stephanie, Dani's little sister, while Decker and Dani and Elvi and Victor are off on their honeymoons. Stephanie was turned in a previous book by a rogue and this book deals a lot with the changes she is going through with adapting to the fact that she will never see her family again. It also deals with Harpers hesitation of getting involved with Drina. Stephanie brings out the comedy as a teenager that sees what is between Drina and Harper before they do. Another great story. "

    " Great book -- love the Argeneau series. Read them all. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ju | 1/5/2014

    " I loved this from the beginning to the end. It was an amazing romance with some great action thrown. I love this series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nora-adrienne | 1/2/2014

    " The more books Lynsay writes the more I enjoy the series. I hope she never runs out of Argeneau family members to torture into finding their "Life Mate" "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sherie | 10/25/2013

    " I think I've liked these books less since they've been about rogue hunters. I mean they were just a little funnier before that. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendi | 9/4/2013

    " Another delightful tale in the Argeneau Vampire Series. Lynsay Sands has a way of bringing two lifemates together and with Drina and Harper doubt and guilt is what plagues them. Will or won't they truely be together and what evil will try to break their growing love apart? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lisa | 8/24/2013

    " I suppose we'll be seeing more of Stephanie in future books (view spoiler)[as her situation was unresolved (hide spoiler)]. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jaclyn | 6/2/2013

    " I love these books they're such an easy read! And I particularly like Lynsay Sands' concept of vampires. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mrs | 5/26/2013

    " Single White Vampire #3 might have finally met it's match. This book was make-your-eyes-water funny; especially the Wal-Mart scene. A must read. Stephanie really made this story and I now I can't wait for hers. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jenn | 3/28/2013

    " one of my favs in this series. steph the 15 yr old definately makes it really fun. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marguerite | 12/12/2012

    " This was my least favorite of the series so far. Drina and Harper and the large cast of characters--all newly minted life mates, plus babysitting a teenage girl with special issues? It was too much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kristina | 3/27/2012

    " It started off extremely slow for me. I loved the characters but the plot lacked something. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Moondance | 2/17/2012

    " Even though Tiny is a back story, I expected a little more from his turning. Harper and Drina are a good couple. Harper is more of a reluctant life mate than vampire. Stephanie could be a character to watch. She is mass of questions and mysteries. 3.5 stars "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Linda | 2/11/2012

    " Good book, continuing base story line from previous books with new characters drawn in, what can I say I like these books a great deal just fun reads ! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Katie | 6/1/2011

    " Loved it! Refreshing, relaxing story I was easily able to immerse myself in. The impressions, thoughts, reflections, feelings and desires of the main characters were exceptionally well done. Can't wait to read Teddy's story in November. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle | 5/22/2011

    " Lots of giggles in the first half of the book, I really like Stephanie's character. Another good addition to the series with more doors being opened for the future. "

    " Easy read good plot, kept me interested till the end, I really like her twist on were they came from. She writes a god story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lori | 4/2/2011

    " Humor and the "innocent" manipulation by Stephanie was great fun to read..... Although this one didn't quite have the struggles of the previous books which I had enjoyed "

    " It started off extremely slow for me. I loved the characters but the plot lacked something. "
