Publisher's Summary

The Argeneau family has a secret...one of their own is a rogue vampire!

Nicholas Argeneau was once a successful hunter who went after rogue vampires who broke the immortal law. Except no one has mentioned his name in the last 50 years, not since he turned into a rogue himself. But once a hunter, always a hunter. When Nicholas sees a bloodthirsty sucker terrifying a woman, it's second nature for him to come to her rescue. He had no idea he would also want to kiss her senseless....

One minute Josephine Willan is taking in a breath of fresh air, and the next sharp fangs are heading straight for her neck! Luckily, a gorgeous stranger saves her life...and gets locked up for his troubles. Can a man who kisses so lovingly and passionately really have committed the crime he's accused of? Jo isn't so sure...and she's determined to prove that this renegade hunter is worth fighting for.

I appreciated the narration more than the story.

A weak repetitive story line. With no explanation at the end. I won't be listening again.

The Renegade Hunter

I think this is my favorite one so far! I really liked Jo and her strength througout. She stood up for Nicholas and believed in him when noone else would. I may be a little bit old fashioned but I really like The "life" mate thing.

Can't wait to read some of the other book.

Great story until the end

I've listened to a few of the Argeneau books, but this was my first in the Rogue Hunter series. This is book 3, and while it would be helpful to know some of the other Argeneau history, you don't need to read the others in this series to understand what's going on.

I was pleasantly surprised by the edgier story line than the more light-hearted Argeneau books...until the end, that is. I won't spoil it for you, but the end left me wondering if this was the vampire version of "who shot JR?" from the old Dallas TV show.

The performance by Kirby Heyborne was acceptable, though the pace of the narration was a little slow for me - not how I would imagine the characters would really sound. Most of the characters' voices weren't all that different, with the notable exception of Lucien Argeneau, which really stood out. I'd listen to Kirby do Lucien all day long.

Love this series - this 1 is the BEST!

I have most of these books in paperback but when the opportunity came to get them on Audible I jumped at a chance to listen to something funny and well written for those times I am not in the mood for something new and unknown. I have to admit that this book and the the one with Jackie and Vincent (A Bite to Remember) are my favorites due to the kicka** attitude of the female characters. I loved how Jo doesn't get sidetracked from what is important and when it comes time for her to learn the truth about vampires she still is hesitant but doesn't go into that "Oh no, I need to run away and act like an idiot" frame of mind. If you like a strong, intelligent, take no guff off anybody and see through to the truth lead female character? This book is for you. I love Nicholas and his way of dealing with his previous loss and accepting Jo as his new lifemate. As for my favorite scene - has to be Jo's "discussion" with Lucien towards the end of the book. She had me laughing out loud there. Nicholas and Jo's story flows right into Armand's story, they tie into each other and complete the story line. If you get this one, please make sure and get "Born to Bite" as well. Both very good stories. (Eshie fits the same female character style as Jackie and Jo.) As for Kerby Heyborne as a narrator - he did a good job. I didn't have any trouble listening and feeling like I understood the characters' voices or who was talking when. If you haven't checked out this series please do. Well worth your time and money.

This is a great love story!

What did you love best about The Renegade Hunter?

I loved the relationship that developed between Nicholas and Jo! Lynsay writes with such perfect detail and personality you really get to know and attached to the members of Argeneau family.

Any additional comments?

Lynsay Sands is an excellent writer and story teller! All characters are well developed and have such distinct personalities. I have read everything she has published and eagerly wait for more!

Good story

Setting: Toronto Contemporary
Genre: paranormal romance

Nicholas Argeneau, once an enforcer, a hunter of rogue immortals, is now a rogue himself, wanted for the murder of a pregnant mortal woman 50 years ago. But he can’t seem to quit hunting and is aiming to find and kill Leonius, a very old and very mentally ill type of immortal called a no-fanger. To that end, he is following Leonius’ son Ernie, even onto the grounds of the enforcer house, the headquarters of the hunters. He catches Ernie attacking Jo Willan who was taking a break from the party her sister and her boyfriend were hosting. After saving Jo, Nicholas figures out that she is his life mate. He had a life mate before, his immortal born wife, who had died in a car accident that had beheaded her. While Nicholas is kissing Jo, Ernie gets away, and the enforcers catch Nicholas and put him into one of the cells they have.. They try to erase Jo’s memory of Nicholas, but it comes back and she goes out to help him escape. The story continues as a sort of truncated road trip with Jo and Nicholas dodging danger, having lots and lots of sex, and figuring out the mystery of the past.
This is the 12th in the Argeneau series, and not too bad an entry. Some of books have been uneven in quality, and I’m happy to say that, except for a couple of instances of stupid, this is one of the better novels. The grammar and usage are good, and Sands’ trademark humor is present in the witty dialogue. It kept my interest (though I’m finally writing this review after the third reading, so I’ll admit to fast-forwarding through the sex scenes).
As for the narration... not my favorite performance. I do wish this series had one narrator for all the books. But not this one. He just didn’t capture the characters well — and Lucian sounded quite constipated (luckily he wasn’t in very many scenes, because it was quite distracting.

Good Story & Narration

Kirby Heyborne makes his first appearance in the Argeneau series as narrator and has an excellent editor/producer as well as a good reading voice. His emotion is good, maybe a little flat and slow, but acceptable and soothing to listen to. The story of Jo and Nicholas is good. I like Jo's feisty personality and tenacity. I like how she doesn't put up with "stupid" but calls it how she sees it. This story leaves you wanting to know what will happen next.

Excellent!

This was an excellent audio book the reader really got into the characters and worked hard to make you believe that these people were really in the situations and when their life was in peril you really felt it!! The book itself is brilliant and i have since downloaded the first book of the series to start from the beginning! There was some plot lines left unresolved so i'm hoping that the next one will feature a glimpse into what needed to be resolved otherwise it'll be a bit disappointing.
