From the Back Cover
Thrilling, witty, and oh-so-sexy, Lynsay Sands’ ARGENEAU NOVEL brings together a beautiful immortal and the man who is her destiny . . .
For someone who’s been around for over a hundred and forty years, immortal Elspeth Argeneau hasn’t done a whole lot of living. Now that she’s moved away from her controlling mother, she’s tracking down rogue vampires and enjoying some overdue freedom. A fling would be fun. A life mate can wait. Yet to Elspeth’s surprise, her landlady’s hot grandson checks both boxes.
Wyatt fell instantly in love with Elspeth four years ago. He’s stunned to run into her again, especially as she has no memory of him. Then again, there are a lot of things about Elspeth that don’t make sense, like the miraculous speed with which her wounds heal. And the chemistry that transforms every touch into an explosion of desire. But with mysterious “accidents” besieging Elspeth, the ex-Special Forces soldier appoints himself her bodyguard. But time is running out to uncover the truth about her enemies—and rediscover the man determined to love her for eternity.

Loved that the old, original family was actively participating in the story. Lucerne had owned the nightclub. Liassene and Greg were aiding the plot. Rachel and Etienne contributed to the action. Margarite and Julius were active. All my original favorite people wove in and out in a natural way, contributing to the plot. Excellent as I was missing all of them in the new direction that the series headed into. The original series was based on the Argeneau family while the newer version focused on the enforcers under Uncle Lucian. Seeing as they are immortal, I see no reason why the original family can't continue to have adventures even though they are married. Thanks for this revival of the original roots in the series.

Elspeth is 142 years old and her mother is still trying to micromanage her life. All Elspeth wanted was some time to experience life like other "normal" people. Go to the movies, eat popcorn, girls' night out, and a million other things that most people take for granted, but her stifling, prison-like home life with her jailer-like mother had all but destroyed those dreams. Somehow, every time she'd reached the end of her tolerance, her determination seemed to suddenly disappear and she would find herself again back in her mother's grip, with no real memory of why she'd changed he'd min,
Elspeth thought she'd escaped her mother's smothering by fleeing to Canada while the rest of the family had been vacationing. However, just six weeks later, Mom shows up, along with her two sisters in tow. To further complicate her life, someone might be trying to kill her, and even more astonishing, she realizes she's met her life-mate. Wyatt is a Canadian Special Forces hunk with a surprising secret of his own. He appoints himself Elspeth's personal bodyguard and their attraction gets even stronger. Wyatt is certain there's more than meets the eye with Elspeth and her family, so while trying to protect Elspeth, he's also trying decide why Elspeth has friended his elderly grandmother, as well as answer a question that's seemingly chipping away at his sanity.
If Elspeth doesn't get killed by her deadly stalker, the explosive attraction between her and Wyatt just might do the trick instead.
In both instances however it was ended with the potential for forgiveness based on the simple fact that the mothers were willing to seek therapy. I can NOT agree that “therapy” alone would be grounds enough to negate YEARS of emotional, mental and yes physical abuse!! (Imprisonment is physical abuse, that’s why it’s used as a punishment,duh). Forgiveness shouldn’t be even on the table unless the person who committed the offenses is truly contrite and remorseful. In this book or the other I have seen neither sign of contrition or remorse. The mother in this book was so sure that her status as “Mother” somehow gave her carte blanche to do whatever she wanted to with her daughter(s) and in fact at one point was instigating a law breaking event that could have gotten her daughter Elspeth executed(!) is proof that she should be jailed! And NOT been give an insinuated slap on the wrist!!
Obviously I had an extreme issue with this story line. I mean come on, all three daughters were so fearful of this mother that they were all repeatedly accusing her either directly or indirectly of the homicidal incidents in the story!! Really if I have even a passing thought that you might try to kill me we are DONE! No looking back, no attempt(s) at reconciliation in the future, blood relation or not. Just DONE. No amount of you being FORCED to go to therapy would change that.
Having said all that, if you can exclude the subplot of the vile Mrs. Bates’ish mother (a. k. a. Norman Bates mom) from the rest of the story then it is typical of the entire rest of the series. Action, love, and the HEA to end it on then you will like it well enough. For me personally I won’t reread this one again, it DID NOT make my favorites list for this series. Neither did the one before this one “Immortally Yours”. In that book I felt the male lead was slut shaming his life mate and so I just couldn’t like him.
The secondary characters are as well defined as the main 2 and really add to the story. Wyatt's grandma Merry is super! The storyline keeps twisting and turning so that you don't know what will happen next in this fast paced adventure. If you have read the other Argeneau stories, then you knew what to expect. If this is your first Argeneau story, you really should go back and read the others in order, but there are A LOT! Either way, Lynsay Sands always writes a good story, so enjoy!

Lynsay Sands writing never disappoints, once again we are taken on the thrills and spills of an immortal finding a life-mate with all the dangers and joys along the way.
Thoroughly enjoyed reading Elspeth's and Wyatt's story.
I won't spoil it for you, just put your feet up and enjoy.
