Ever since an accident turned her into a knockout vamp, Elvi Black's been catching her z's in a coffin, staying out of the sun, and giving up garlic. She knows there's more to being undead than what she saw in "Dracula," but she can't very well ask her mortal friends about proper biting etiquette. But when her neighbors placed a personal ad for her in the local paper, she never imagined she'd meet Victor Argeneau, a vampire who could have his pick of any woman--dead or alive.
Rich, powerful, and drop--dead gorgeous, Victor's the perfect man for a novice neck--biter like Elvi. He's willing to teach her everything he knows, but he'll have to do it fast. Someone's out to put a stake through her new vamp life, and only Victor can keep her safe--and satisfied--for all eternity.
Inez Urso is beginning to have her doubts. Her business associate Thomas Argeneau has some interesting traits, like an allergic reaction to the sun, excellent night vision, and not much of an appetite for food. And to top it all off, he just tried to bite her neck . . . but maybe that was a sign of passion. If so, she'd be happy to experience more, despite her determination not to mix business with pleasure.
Well, if not forever, at least two hundred years. Inez is the most beautiful woman he's seen in centuries. Those luscious lips, seductive curves, and her elegant neck . . . he just couldn't resist the temptation of one little bite. Now Thomas will do anything to convince her that only an immortal like him can satisfy her all night long . . .
After seven hundred years of life, Marguerite Argeneau finally has a career. Well, the start of one, anyway. She's training to be a private investigator, and her first assignment is to find an immortal's mother. It seemed simple enough, until Marguerite wakes up one evening to find herself at the wrong end of a sword. Now she realizes she's in way over her head.
Julius Notte wants to protect Marguerite, and not because someone just tried to take her head off. She doesn't know it yet, but she's his lifemate and he's determined to woo her. It's been over five hundred years since he last courted a woman, but surely the techniques haven't changed. Now if only he can keep her alive--so to speak--so they can have that happily-ever-after.
I loved reading these books! I was only planning on reading The Accidental Vampire, but then I just had to read more of the series! And I'm so glad that I did, Vampires Are Forever was connected to Vampire, Interrupted, and reading those back to back was just awesome!
While reading these books, I had to know more about these families, because the Argeneaus from the previous books had a lot of cousins and uncles. I didn't know how much until I looked at the family tree-their grandparents had 9 kids. And those kids have led colourful lives!
Just loved watching these couples fall in love. There was the complications of telling their significant others about vampires-only Inez wasn't a vampire, but Ellen/Elvi was accidentally turned, and didn't know the real truth about vampires, just what movies and books told her!
Loved the mysteries in these books! Accidental Vampire, the story of her being turned, and who was trying to kill whom. Forever, and Interrupted, dealt with finding Marguerite and the investigation into Christian's mother. Who turned out to be Marguerite! Just loved that! So great to read!
Loved reading these books so much, and I can't wait to read more of this series!
