Publisher's Summary

Thrilling, witty, and oh-so-sexy, Lynsay Sands' Argeneau novel brings together a beautiful Immortal and the man who is her destiny.... 

For someone who's been around for over 140 years, immortal Elspeth Argeneau hasn't done a whole lot of living. Now that she's moved away from her controlling mother, she's tracking down rogue vampires and enjoying some overdue freedom. A fling would be fun. A life mate can wait. Yet to Elspeth's surprise, her landlady's hot grandson checks both boxes. 

Wyatt fell instantly in love with Elspeth four years ago. He's stunned to run into her again, especially as she has no memory of him. Then again, there are a lot of things about Elspeth that don't make sense, like the miraculous speed with which her wounds heal. And the chemistry that transforms every touch into an explosion of desire. But with mysterious "accidents" besieging Elspeth, the ex-Special Forces soldier appoints himself her bodyguard. But time is running out to uncover the truth about her enemies - and rediscover the man determined to love her for eternity.

Another interesting visit with the Argeneaus

Setting: Contemporary Toronto
Genre: Paranormal romance
Elspeth Argeneau Pimms is 140 years old and desperate to get out from under her mother’s control. So she leaves her home in England for a teaching job in Toronto, but she’s doing some rear echelon work for the Enforcers until term starts. Unfortunately, her mother shows up 6 weeks later, along with her younger twin sisters. At the same time, she meets her landlady’s grandson, Wyatt. The thing is, Wyatt remembers El from four years ago when they spent a perfect day and amazing night together, then she disappeared. Now she doesn’t even know him. She does recognize that this guy is her life mate, but she doesn’t want to settle down. Also, the same day her mom shows up and she meets Wyatt, someone starts trying to kill her.
This is the 27th in this series, and is as good as those in the beginning (some of the more recent ones have been a little on the weak side IMHO). Although there is action, this is very much a character-driven story, and both hero and heroine are strongly written enough to carry it. Elspeth’s mother is a bit one dimensional, but I guess it’s difficult to make a control freak a sympathetic character. Other secondary characters are well written, and some of them show some growth through the story. Overall, I would say that the story is better than average.
As to the narration, I was never not aware that it could have been better. But then, I have never been 100% satisfied with any of the narrators in this series (in some cases I got the ebook because the narration was so bad). Charlotte North does not do a good English accent, and it sounds worse because she has to switch between North American and British English. Someone like Angela Dawe or Xe Sands would probably have been better, because either of them could pull off the demands of the story. Anyway, Ms North didn’t irritate me to the point of shutting off the book, but the performance barely falls into the average slot.

Somberly

An okay addition to this series that I haven’t followed for a while.
In the end though all I could think of was the excessive use of the word sombrely. Everybody said, asked or did something sombrely.
Good narrator.

Good story, felt a little like it was reaching...

The writing is so good just as the other books it carries you right along never a full moment. The characters are well rounded and I like that we we're introduced to more elders their stories interest me too. I hope to find them added as well. None the less I thought with where the last book left off we would still be along those lines
So with that said this book was a bit of a reach like it's just please follow the leads and let me explore too where the story goes with the captured immortals...

Much better than the last

This book was so much better than the last one I read and I’m so glad I took the chance. I feel like the series is back on track. I cannot wait for the next one. The readers did a wonderful job.

ANOTHER FANTASTIC ARGENEAU EPISODE

I love these Argeneau's in this episode we've got Elspeth back & ex Canadian Special Forces turn body guard Wyatt, whom had met 4 yrs prior, but she can't remember. So there's me thinking how can he remember & she can't.
Heck you might think you've got a controlling Mother, think yourself lucky, that you don't have one like Martine
In Twice Bitten it's one episode after another when he comes to not just Elspeth's life, but the lives around them.
And we do see this episode is about 3 weeks after IMMORTALLY YOURS

Charlotte North read good with some comical ways in her expressions
