Marguerite Argeneau had a miserable life with her late husband, Jean Claude. He was controlling and cruel to the point of her only joy being their children. Marguerite thinks that time in her life is behind her, but someone has other plans for her future.

When the opportunity arises for Marguerite to take on a job as a PI, she teams up with Tiny for their first case together. What starts out as tracking down Christian Notte’s birthmother becomes a complicated search into the past. When Christian’s father, Julius, joins their group, a centuries old secret is revealed.

Christian is desperate to learn his mother’s identity, but Julius has refused to provide any information. It’s a time from his life that Julius prefers not to revisit. He lost the love of his life, his lifemate. It’s been centuries since he had any interest in courting a woman, but with his son’s help, Julius isn’t about to let Marguerite slip through his fingers. In order to keep her he’ll have to share the truth of the past and put an end to Christian’s search. When the facts are revealed, the shocking reality may be too much to bear.

Vampire, Interrupted is the ninth book in the Argeneau series. The last thing Marguerite wants in her life is a man, but Julius Notte is not easily put off. In the midst of blossoming romance, the Argeneau family is about to learn a secret that someone is willing to kill to protect. With a fast-paced and creative storyline, Ms. Sands dazzles readers with a fascinating thrill ride of danger packed action and chemistry that won’t be denied. This is a touching story of second chances at love, and starting over.

I've got some of these waiting to be read right now. Can't wait to get my hands on a copy of this one. :)

This is the most surprising book in the series to me. It was great to know Marguerite's story. There are a few sniffle moments, so keep those tissues handy Katie. :)

I must admit that I'm impressed. Often authors get stuck in the same tone and to see three different ones back to back is exciting. From the reviews you've written it sounds like she has a light hearted story, a mysterious story that's a little darker and an emotionally dark story. It really works at piquing my curiosity.

To me this was the most surprising of the series. Emotionally dark is right, they are usually much lighter. Ms. Sands is very creative in her storylines, and while one may over-lap the next to some degree, there's no doubt which character is the focus. :)


After the life that Margerette has lived its no wonder that her story is a little darker. I have alway hoped that Lynsay would write sometime about Atlantis and the Loved ones that were lost.
Geeze no Im wondering who's story will be next!
Kim you tease :0)

I'm with you, I'd love to read more about their beginnings in Atlantis too. Once you read this one I think you'll have the same guess as me on who will be next.
