The Rogue Hunter by Lynsay Sands
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This book is the first in a sort of spinoff (?) from the typical Argeneau books. While still in the same world, here we join Mortimer as he tries to track down a rogue vampire. Of course, we still get all the things we’ve grown to love about Argeneau books – romance and a HEA.
Sam is an overworked genius lawyer. Her family finally convinced her to get away for two weeks at their lake house. She takes her phone (of course), but is relatively convinced that she can manage to relax and spend time with her family. The added bonus is that there appears to be 3 handsome men staying next door this year.
Mortimer has always had a picture in his head of what his life mate would look like and she vaguely resembled Jessica Rabbit. When he meets Sam and is unable to get into her head, he realizes that fate had something entirely different planned for him. What starts with reluctance soon grows into an obsession he can’t ignore. Oh, and his plan to get her alone to “woo” her is helped along by the fact that work requires her to take a trip during her vacation.
Sam is reluctant to accept work’s request to check on a client’s missing daughter but things are looking a lot better when Mortimer joins her for the journey. These two are like teenagers, trying to figure out who likes who and how much, all the while facing an undeniable lust. When they finally decide to throw caution to the wind, it seems like the universe has a funny way to blocking their every opportunity. Turns out, the mystery was the least suspense-filled part of the entire book. Instead, I was desperately hoping these two could find time alone to figure out where their relationship could go. While not the same as the other books, this one still has me eagerly diving into the next book in the series. Now we’ve got a whole new pool of people to hook up!
