I really think Lynsay Sands is getting back in the swing of things with her latest, The Lady is Vamp. I'll be honest and admit the last few didn't spark my interest like the first few in the series and I was starting to get a little worried. Well, let me tell you Ms. Sands brought it back and in a big way. The characters were highly enjoyable and the story line brought a sense of 'reality' to the fantasy land of vampires.

What wouldn't we do to ensure the survival of our children?

Paul Jones is in that exact dilemma. While working at Argeneau Enterprises he's introduce to the world of the immortal. They don't get sick and live forever. When he first finds out it's nothing more than scientific curiosity that gets sparked but when his daughter is diagnosed with a life-threatening brain tumor he knows what he has to do. Even if that means forcing someone to change his daugher.

Jeanne Louise doesn't know what to expect when she wakes chained to a bed, but it sure wasn't being greeted by a man that she can't read. And those of you familiar with the Argeneau clan know what that means. YEP! It's life mate-time. But Jeanne Louise has more than just being kidnapped to deal with. Paul is a widower which leaves her in the challenging position of competed against a ghost in the love department, not to mention that pesky rule about only being allowed to turn one human in her lifetime. Knowing Paul will never agree to give up his daughter, Jeanne Louise has to come up with a solution and FAST. The enforcers know that she's been kidnapped and they aren't taking too nicely to the fact that a mortal has taken one of their own.
Make man fall in love
Save daughter
Outrun enforcers
Sounds easy enough...............right?

Hoping to save someone he loves, Paul Jones kidnaps Jeanne Louise Argeneau to try and convince her to help him in a way only an immortal can. He thinks he's prepared, yet the one thing he never planned on was falling in love with the woman who has become much more than his captive. Jeanne Louise should be furious with Paul but she understands his motives and soon realizes that he's more than just her abductor, he's her lifemate. But lifemates or not, laws have been broken and Jeanne Louis and Paul are in a race to find a way to make things right before they're torn apart forever.

Paul has had to watch as someone he loves suffers in pain and is dying. He's aware that immortals, vampires but don't call them that, exist and hatches a plan to kidnap one in order to convince them to help. For him, his coworker and the woman he's gotten to know from a distance is his only choice. I was a little put off by how Paul got to know Jeanne Louise while watching her when she didn't notice. Though the behavior and methods were kind of disturbing, I probably would've done the same thing if I was in his position. He's a caring and devoted family man who treats Jeanne Louise with respect so I forgave him for his slightly creepy behavior in the beginning.

I had no strong feels going into this story either way for Jeanne Louise because up to this point she's played a minor role in the series. She's very understanding of Paul's situation and does everything she can to help him while hiding from the Enforcers, immortal police, who are looking for them. I can't say there's anything to her that makes her my favorite character or even heroine from this series but she kept me entertained and I was happy for her in the end. Even if I didn't think their relationship was all that spectacular.

Review courtesy of All Things Urban Fantasy.

THE LADY IS A VAMP and I got off to a rocky start. Sands's vampires experience the ennui of ages by losing appetites; food, sex, the passions of life start to fade away. Finding their intended life mate brings all of those senses back on line.

When Jeanne Louise wakes up wrapped in chains with a strange man offering her food and water, my initial reaction was to assume that she was either insanely powerful or just plain addled when she had no normal fight or flight reactions to the situation. As the life mate signs start piling up, however, it is clear that her captor only poses a threat to her heart, not her health. Both characters soon begin to ignore the entire kidnapping scenario, and that's where the awkwardness kicked into high gear. Let's have a picnic (with a chain on your ankle). Daughter, eat your sandwich (with secret, mind-control help from Jeanne Louise). THE LADY IS A VAMP is a traditional romance told through the lens of Jeanne Louise's powers, but that paranormal gloss wasn't enough to get me interested in these particular tropes. Jeanne Louise isn't really a prisoner, her secretive altruistic actions with Lily are a clear bid for a later "big misunderstanding" that never emerges, and while Lily's illness provides the catalyst for Paul and Jeanne Louise's enforced proximity, plotting a romance around a terminally ill child is too complex of an issue for me to comfortably ignore whenever Lilly is out of the room (or in the backseat).

I would have liked the elements of Jeanne Louise's alien nature better if the author had left it up to me to decide whether she was used her powers in a responsible fashion.
