From the Back Cover

When Vampires Go On Vacation . . .

Escaping a horrible marriage, Carolyn Connor has no desire to think about men—a vow she's determined to keep while on vacation in St. Lucia. She'll take the Caribbean sun and sea and plenty of tropical drinks with those cute umbrellas poolside, thank you. She absolutely does not need male company, no matter how tan and rock-hard his body may be.

Easy enough, but then Carolyn meets the charming Marguerite Argeneau, who is infamous among her family for her matchmaking prowess . . .

Christian Notte has well known the power of finding a life mate. He's seen enough of his Argeneau relatives taken down for the count, but he never imagined he'd let himself fall in love—until he meets the enthralling, charmingly skittish, and oh-so-mortal Carolyn. But how will he reveal what he is and still convince this once-bitten mortal to trust him with her heart . . . and her forever?

Customer Reviews

This book was a very quick read, I couldn't put it down!

One thing that did seem to feel a little off was towards the ending when Carolyn just sort of did a 180 on what she was normally like throughout the book.

I loved the story line of this book and I really loved the laugh out loud funny bits.

Marguerite Argeneau-Notte and her life mate Julius are on their honeymoon at a resort in St Lucia. She immediately notices that another guest of the resort is her son's life mate; she has a gift of recognizing life mates for family members. As luck would have it Carolyn is good friends with the resort's entertainment coordinator who is frantic to replace the band that had to cancel at the last minute. It's the perfect excuse to bring Christian and the band he has with his Notte cousins to the island so he can meet Carolyn.

But Carolyn is vacationing there with another friend, Bethany, to get away while the divorce from her husband is finalized. Reading her thoughts the Notte family realizes Carolyn would run from a relationship with Christian right now, especially since she believes he's so much younger than her and has very little experience with relationships. Much to Christian's chagrin his cousin tells Carolyn he's gay but the rest of the family doesn't know about it, and would Carolyn agree to act as his love interest while they're on the island so the rest of the family doesn't find out; it's a role she's played before in college for a good friend. The hope is that she'll get comfortable with him as a friend first, and not run away from his interest or when learning the truth about what they are.

There's a great deal of sexual tension and humor in a beautiful setting. Right now Christian can only make love to her through dream-walking and Carolyn is horrified that she's so turned on by the much younger gay man that she's feels she's raping him in her dreams. She feels the need to protect him from her, adding to his frustration.

Carolyn's objections to a relationship, especially with a younger man, start feeling over the top as the story progresses.

Can you believe that this is the 19th Argeneau book? I really enjoyed Under A Vampire Moon and for me it was much better than the last couple of entries in Lynsay Sands' light vampire romance series - I wasn't that fond of the last few books which were starting to make Sands' old tried and true formula feel a bit tired.

This time around Christian Notte, son to matchmaking Margarite and half brother to the characters in the first four books, is in the lead. While on a tropical island honeymoon with her new/old mate, Margarite's spidey senses discover a potential lifemate for her son in the forty something Carolyn, who is taking a vacation in the sun to celebrate the end of her disastrous marriage. So of course Margarite does what she does best and pulls the strings to get Christian and his Notte cousins' band a gig in order to get Christian there as soon as possible.

With his cousins and his parents there to put the pieces in play to help Christian woo Carolyn -who is skittish about her attraction to the 'much younger' Christian - the story felt much fresher and it felt more like the earlier books in the series. And since I was able to accept the big ploy to keep Christian's lifemate from fleeing her attraction to him long enough to for the nanos to do their magic, Under a Vampire Moon worked for me.

The fact that Christian has to try to keep his desire in check in order to keep Carolyn around long enough to get to know him and fall in love with him, works to keep romantic tension high with much of the steamy stuff between Christian and Carolyn initially coming from shared lifemate dreams.

Lynsay Sands writes a very delightful romantic comedy of Carolyn Connor, a 40s something woman who has been badly burned by a previous romantic relationship and the sexy, young looking musician/entertainer Christian Notte. Christian is Marguerite Argeneau's Italian son who is eager to claim a life mate, and willing to accept the fiction his female cousin Gia creates that he is an in the closet gay man who needs Carolyn's help in passing as straight.

The writing is playful, and fits seamlessly into the ongoing epic of the Argeneau clan. Situational comedy with witty banter and loving family warmth (on the vampire side) that make the reading enjoyable.

Unlike most of my fellow "Vine-ers" - I've read this entire series & enjoyed most of Sands' books. I think to be a better reviewer of this book - you need to be an actual reader of this series & not read this book independently because it helps to know the back stories of Christian, Marguerite, Julius, and so on.

Anyway - as a fan of this series...I found "Under A Vampire Moon" not to be nearly as strong of a story as a lot of her other Argeneau books. Way too much time was spent building (and building) up the premise of Carolyn being hurt from a prior relationship and how Christian (her "life mate") needed to woo her in a way that she would perceive as non-threatening. So the answer was having Carolyn pretend to be his "beard" (a faux girlfriend to a gay man so he'd be viewed as straight). It just seemed so "Three's Company"...and wrapped itself up in an unbelievable way. This wasn't an awful book but it also wasn't her best.

The good news is at the end of the book - a preview of the next involving Jeanne Louise - looks quite promising.
