From Publishers Weekly
Sands's 23rd Argeneau paranormal romance (after About a Vampire) features a somewhat nontraditional heroine who meets her hero in an unusual way. With all of the spark of a low-speed chase in a traffic jam, 62-year-old widow Mary meets the younger-looking Dante when he comes bounding along through the woods like a deer in flight and runs into her RV on a lonely back road. Mary was taking one last trip to say goodbye to her husband's memory before returning to her beloved Canada. Dante's arrival does quite a bit to upend those plans. Unfortunately, Dante is a hunted man with a desperate need to find his twin brother, which means Mary's life isn't the only one changed by that chance meeting. The opening sets an unfortunately implausible tone for the remainder of the story, which focuses more on the interplay between Dante and Mary than any deeper plot. Readers who are excited to read paranormal romance with a senior citizen heroine will be disappointed when Mary is turned into a vampire and ends up looking like Barbie, and Sands never really makes her sound as mature as her age would imply. At its best, this installment has the feel of a transition book, paving the way for future stories wherein the deeper mystery alluded to will finally be addressed. Mostly, readers will suspect that Sands had a contract to fulfill. Agent: Jenny Bent, Bent Agency. (Mar.)\n

Female is too, bluntly put, whiny and wishy-washy. Like I get the angle here, and I respect it. But do it justice. The characters came off ackward, I feel like the female went through way to many emo redirects and "evolutions". Why was the cheating spouse thing necessary? Widows move on, it's not necessary to demonize a deceased loved one, because new love buds. idk that really irked me. It served no real purpose but a "greenlight", if I found out my hubby of decades was a flounderer I wouldn't be okay being consoled with someone's tongue. I'd be upset, like really upset.
Secondly Dante is idk different then he comes off in other stuff it was disappointing too.
I have been a fan of her Argeneau series since Single White Vampire (which was amazing and got me hooked on her as an author) - but I've been less than impressed with the last few.
1. Where's the humor? Usually I'm laughing, the tone is light and the story is fun. This had the elements - she runs him over with an RV, chaos ensues - could have worked. It didn't - not for me. If anyone could find something humorous that wasn't eye roll worthy - please let me know.
2. Tone - this felt rushed. Everything felt rushed. Their love story - rushed. For someone so "mature and wise" as I've seen her described she sure does capitulate quick. I saw no reason for them to fall in love; no chemistry. Where was the witty banter? The shared interests ? How they complement each other?
3. Preaching - I felt *so* preached to. With Mary's whole spiel about her marriage. Fine, I guess that was one perspective but I felt preached to. I am not reading this for relationship advice - I want a fun story. That's why I read lynsay sands in particular.
4. Dante - boring. I read a whole book about him and I feel like I don't know him at all. How's he different than any other John Doe Vampire (excuse me, immortal)? I wasn't interested or invested him at all - and it was *his* book.
Anyway, I was bored and not entertained. If that's what you were hoping for - save your money, imo.
In this installment, the twins have been kidnapped, and Dante literally runs into his lifemate's vehicle while escaping the kidnappers. Mary's taking her RV out for one last cross country trip before retiring the behemoth, deciding she doesn't want to take this traditional trip alone anymore.
I really liked this installment. I liked that Dante & Mary got to spend a lot of time alone, getting to know one another & it wasn't ALL about that instant lifemate attraction. There was some fighting the younger guy thing w/ Mary, but it didn't go on too long as it has in other stories. And I loved their banter! I thought their personalities meshed really well & I BELIEVED in the nanos on this one.
Also, we get to see more Lucian, and he's my favorite grumpy butt. *grin* AND we get a little glimpse of Bricker, who seems to be back to his regular self, thankfully. Looking forward to the next one - hoping it's Tomasso! : )
