Review: Under a Vampire Moon by Lynsay Sands
Publication: April 24th 2012
Christian Notte’s story, the sixteenth book in the Argeneau series is set on an island paradise called St. Lucia. After a bad relationship and an even worse divorce, Carolyn decides to go on a long overdue and much needed vacation with the ‘girls’. Only the rest of the vacationers didn’t get the memo. Around every corner there seems to be another couple celebrating their honeymoon or anniversary and the few single men she does see are far too young to even consider, including an irresistibly attractive rock violinist she meets.
It’s really too bad he’s so young but in the end it doesn’t matter because according to his cousin, Giacinta, women in general aren’t Christian’s type. But there’s a catch, Christian needs Carolyn’s help. He needs her to be his beard (to play the part of his fake girlfriend) for the week to appease his ‘machismo’ family. Carolyn just can’t seem to say No and decides to help Gia’s cousin. The only problem is that being around Christian and acting like they are a loving couple is wreaking havoc on her emotions. Carolyn’s thoughts keep drifting back to places they shouldn’t, like kissing his full lips or feeling his broad shoulders under her fingertips… good lord, she’s in trouble.
I am someone who tries really hard to read series in their order. Thankfully I am a fan of the Argeneau series so I had already read the previous 15 books. If you haven’t read any of the previous books, don’t worry, you won’t be lost when you read Under a Vampire Moon. Ms. Sands does a wonderful job making you not feel left out and gives you the details that you need to follow along with the story.
Under a Vampire Moon is a light, easy, fun read. This is not a scary vampire story at all; it is a love story between a vampire and his life mate. Things take a crazy turn when she is led to believe he is gay. To top it off she thinks she is way too old for him when the opposite is true. There is a twist in the plot that I was not expecting and in the end… well you just can’t wait for the next Areneau novel to come out!
I give Under a Vampire Moon 5 Smiles:
