Immortal Ever After by Lynsay Sands
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
These books just keep finding new and interesting ways to twist the formula. This book involves kidnapping, vet school, pregnant ladies, and dogs. Who knew I would like it when all those things were spun up into one book?
Valerie is an independent woman who doesn’t let being kidnapped by crazy people hold her down for long. Sure, she’s alone, trapped in a dog cage, being food for some guy who thinks he’s a vampire, but that doesn’t stop her from fighting back and eventually getting all the survivors out alive (almost costing her her life). Making a phone call that involves any hint of vampires, however, calls in the Argeneau team of enforcers.
Anders has watched a whole bunch of vampires find their life mate and did not truly intend on finding his anytime soon. The signs are all there, though – he can’t read her, can’t control her, and loves food again. If only she weren’t possibly being hunted by the rogue that kidnapped here, it would all be pretty perfect. Oh, and she doesn’t truly believe in vampires (or at least good vampires, since the guy that kidnapped her ultimately fed off her).
Things rapidly spiral out of control in the last portion of the book, though. Sometimes I wonder exactly how the author will wrap things up so quickly, but nothing felt rushed or completely out of control. We still get our joyous happily ever after (now with a slightly happy Lucien!). I really enjoyed having a main character who really didn’t need Anders to come to the rescue. Go team independent woman!
