Leigh is a restaurant/bar owner in Kansas & one morning while walking back home she was attacked & turned by a rogue vampire. Lucian & his men had found out where the rogue was staying & were about to go into the house when the rogue pulled up in abandoned with Leigh. & that is the beginning of their mating.
This book takes you from Kansas to Canada where Lucian starts to fall for Leigh. & his nieces & nephews try to help him because he hasn't wooed anyone for centuries. This book has sex scenes, fight scenes, a dog named Julius (which if I remember correctly I think there's a story to that name) & lots of vampires some bad but most of them good.
This was a very good book & I will continue on with reading this series.
When I found this book, I was looking for a low-angst, true love novel where the H and h fell hard and you knew it would last forever (like, FOREVER). I liked how, once he decided the h was for him, he never wavered. It's similar to a Navy SEAL book in that the H falls in love fast and you just know he'd do anything to protect the h.
I've read a few in the series but this one is my favorite.

This is the sixth book in the awesome Argeneau/Rogue Hunter series (after A Quick Bite , Love Bites , Single White Vampire , Tall, Dark and Hungry and A Bite to Remember ) and features the grumpy Uncle Lucian. He's always been very brusque and bad-tempered in the previous books, but occasionally he has shown glimmers of being a nice guy underneath it all so it was interesting to find out more about him.
The plot is as densely plotted as usual with a good mix of tension and humour that kept me glued to the page. Whenever I pick up a Lynsay Sands book I know I'm in for a fun action-packed read and this is no exception. This follows in the slightly darker tone of the previous book and shows the reader for the first time what it's like to hunt rogue vampires. Lucian and Leigh's romance is also distinct from the previous ones, building on each of their lives.
Rogue vampires have been mentioned a few times, particularly in the most recent installments but there hasn't been a huge focus on why vampires go rogue or what happens after they do. This book changes that. It manages to show the reasons why some vampires go rogue while others don't and it gives insight into how and why they are hunted. Having someone like Lucian who has been hunting rogues for a long time to guide the reader through means info-dumping doesn't occur at all.
Lucian is the oldest character featured so far and at over two thousand years he definitely shows his age at times. He also hasn't eaten in decades so it is hilarious to see him trying various types of food. It's great to see why he's been such a jerk in the past (a certain scene with Greg in A Quick Bite comes to mind) and get to understand him better. Leigh is a brilliant match for Lucian. She's mature enough to be confident her relationship with Lucian, but young enough to make him realise that life can be really fun. Leigh very much has her own life that she's worked hard to build so becoming a vampire is a massive adjustment for her as it means losing a lot.
All in all, this was a great read and I'm looking forward to The Accidental Vampire .
This book was very funny. Lucian is cold and tough and completely useless for the most basic of tasks needed to look after Leigh and therefore his family (from the previous books) feel they must step in to help him teach her and convince her to be his life mate. Heated dog food and self help books add to the hilarity and Lucian is quite adorable in his stupidity with Leigh. The hardcore hunter is no more and it's doubtful if anyone in the family will fear him after this! The plot was great and the ending sneaks up on you and was less abrupt than others have been which was good.
A triumph for Lynsay Sands, 6 books in and still amazing. This one must be read it is fantastic and incredibly funny - definitely a keeper.
Thought the ending was cut short though.
But overall still a good classic read.
