The Lady is a Vamp is the 17th book in the Argeneau Novel series……. 17. Wow. Seriously I just think every time I pick up a new Argeneau Novel I have this doubt that it will hold up. again. 17 times. Let’s face it. We know the plot line and how many times can Lynsay Sands create a captivating story with the same plot line. The answer is simple – obviously more than 17!!! The Lady is a Vamp did not disappoint. Just like the previous novels I absorbed The Lady is a Vamp like it was brain candy!! Page after page flew by later and later into the night and I was unable to talk myself into putting it down. The Lady is a Vamp was not as humorous as some of the books have been. It was filled with a tinge of fear and sadness as there was a child involved in this story. I really can’t go into it much more than that, but It added a great new depth to this series. So overall this book was really great. I think that you could read this book as a stand alone. You might miss pieces of the bigger picture and some of the depth overall, but all in all it is a complete story. The story’s ending I thought held a few minor flaws, but I was smiling at the end and that counts for a lot! The Lady is a Vamp met my expectations!!!

I love the whole series and she cannot write them fast enough for me! There are several things I look for in a book to be considered 'great' in my opinion. 1. Are the characters real enough that I am invested emotionally in them? Check! 2. Do they make me laugh or cry? Check!! 3. Can I stop reading to do others things and not be pulled back to the book instead? No way!! 4. Am I constantly looking for the next in the series? Double Check! Most of the series has had me needing to stop reading in places because I was laughing too hard to catch my breath, I love the humor that L Sands has. This book did not make me laugh, it made me cry - sad tears and happy tears. And truly, if a book can make you feel enough to cry, that is a good book indeed. Read the rest of the series first if you haven't, the character building, the feeling of old friends as each book builds on them, it can't be beat.

Lynsay Sands did not disappoint with this book. I loved the entire series and loved this book too. It was heartwarming and funny. Highly recommend for those who love a twist on the vampire story.

As in all the Argeneau series this was very good. It had a slightly different twist in it. I don't recall a child being turned in any other story. The desperation in trying to save a dying child tore at my heart. Especially knowing that since she used her one and only turn to save the child, she couldn't turn the father who was her life mate. It kept me on the edge to find out how it was resolved. I thoroughly enjoyed this one as I have the entire series. I look forward to the next one.

I've read all of the Argeneau and rogue hunter books, and I think that this one is probably my favorite. It really delved into the emotional complexity faced by immortals living and loving in a world vastly outnumbered by weaker, fragile mortals and the despair they feel existing long, lonely years without mates. I did get annoyed that Paul was scoping out Jeanne-Louise a mere few months after his wife's sudden and untimely death, but I'm pleased that he felt some guilt over doing so. Jeanne-Louise's behavior at the story's climax has hardly stellar as well. Overall, this is a very sweet story, and you very much want everything to work out well for everyone.

I've read all of the Argeneau books and am a fan. This one didn't do it for me. First off this felt very much like a short story that had been stretched out to be a novel. Second, I couldn't connect with the heroine Jeanne Louise. Toward the end of the book I was beginning to actively dislike her. If the situation had been reversed and the vamp had been been a male, his decision to avoid being hurt would have been unsympathetic. I think the same is true here.

Always love this series. They are funny light hearted reads, well this one was a little more serious than some of the others, but quick reads with happy endings. Great escapism reading especially when life sucks and you just want to forget all your troubles. I love the Argeneau family and we got to see quite a few members from previous books pop up in this one. As always looking forward to the next one.

It's Jeanne Louise's turn to find a lifemate! But how they meet and discover they belong to each other is a new twist. Paul works for the Argeneau Research and Develop section and he has his eyes set on Jeanne Louise... but not for the reasons you would think. He's a widower and has a young daughter with cancer. He hatches a plan... Will his plan work? Will he get caught? Does the plan go off as planned? NO!!! Nothing goes as planned and that's what keeps you turning the pages!!! I loved the twists in this story and the addition of the little girl... A must read!!! Enjoy!!!

And I will keep reading L Sands books. Enjoyed. There were a few times I wasnt sure how this would end, yet it ended just right. I have been reading this series for a few years now and I am now going to read THE GIFT that is in an anthology with a J Frost story.

Another fantastic Argeneau novel by the extremely talented Lynsay Sands!! This is the long-awaited story of Jeanne Louise, an amazingly sympathetic & understanding Argeneau vampire and I have been anxiously awaiting her story... And let me tell you, Wow! This book is well worth the wait & won't disappoint! Ms. Sands turns this into an incredibly dramatic and compelling novel with some shocking twists & turns! Paul Jones is a loving single father, willing to take desperate measures to keep his five year old daughter, Olivia, alive. She is dying from a brain tumor & no human medicine is working for her. Olivia's life is draining away, bit by bit, every day, and Paul will do anything required to help her live.. Even if that means kidnapping a vampire. Paul is a human who works at Argeneau Enterprises & knows many of the company secrets... including the fact that several of the employees are immortal vampires.. The only way he can think of saving Olivia's life is to kidnap & convince one of the vampires to change Olivia into an immortal vampire to rid her of the tumor & keep her alive.. Easier said than done, when he ends up kidnapping Jeanne Louise, who quickly turns the tables on Paul, when she realizes that he is her destined life-mate. She falls in love with him and also with the precocious little Olivia and decides that she will do whatever is needed to help the little girl live.. However, all that comes to a crashing halt when a horrible accident occurs & all their lives are impacted greatly. Lynsay Sands knows how to write an amazing, earth-shattering novel that will keep the reader completely enthralled, every page of the book. Will fate intervene & make this broken family whole and will Jeanne Louise end up with her fated life-mate or is she destined to spend eternity alone? Pick up this amazing novel & check it out! Lynsay Sands is one of the best paranormal romance authors out there today and "The Lady Is A Vamp" is no exception to her greatness. She knows how to rock this readers world!

I had pretty much given up on Argeneau series until I read its review on the vampire book club website. I totally agree with the review. Lyndsay Sands has redeem herself and this book is one of the reasons I fell in love with the series in the first place. Paul is what make this book great, you can't help falling in love with him.

Anxiously awaited, greatly enjoyed! I have been a fan of Sands' for quite awhile and as soon as I finish one, I'm looking forward to the next. Paul had no idea what he was getting himself into. Jean Louise was ready.
