    Twice Bitten by Lynsay Sands is book 27 in the Argeneau series. This is the story of Elspeth Argeneau and Wyatt MacKay. This can easily be a standalone book.

    Twice Bitten by Lynsay Sands is book 27 in the Argeneau series. This is the story of Elspeth Argeneau and Wyatt MacKay. This can easily be a standalone book.

    Elspeth is part of the Argeneau family and even if she is a 140 year old vampire she has lived a somewhat shelter life but always a controlling one by her mother. Elspeth mother had taken the lost of her family hard and became obsessed with keeping Elspeth save and in her control. But Elspeth became free of her mother but knows she will come back to try to take control of her again. So in the meantime Elspeth is enjoying freedom and not planning on doing any commitments other than helping her Vampire group. But then she meets Wyatt who she finds attractive but it also seems he may be her life mate...which is a big commitment. Along with that there have been accidents happening to her also. Wyatt met Elspeth a few years back and fell in love with her but she has no memory of their meeting. I so enjoyed watching Wyatt and Elspeth story come together!

    Ms. Sands writing is always so great and is a must read for sure!

    I love reading Lynsay Sands. Whether it’s her Paranormal, Contemporary or her Historical Romance series, I always feel fulfilled after reading one of her stories. I can continually count on her to write fun and interesting characters, to constantly bring a smile to my face and to always have a little bit of mystery to make everything interesting. Twice Bitten is exactly what I expected from her.

    Wyatt was totally unexpected. A mortal who fell in love with El and then lost her when she just didn’t

    I love reading Lynsay Sands. Whether it’s her Paranormal, Contemporary or her Historical Romance series, I always feel fulfilled after reading one of her stories. I can continually count on her to write fun and interesting characters, to constantly bring a smile to my face and to always have a little bit of mystery to make everything interesting. Twice Bitten is exactly what I expected from her.

    Wyatt was totally unexpected. A mortal who fell in love with El and then lost her when she just didn’t show up. He was thoughtful, sexy and one of the most understanding men I have ever read. He knew what to say and when to say it and said it directly from his heart. There was nothing about this man that I didn’t love … including his Gran.

    El was, unfortunately, smothered by her mother. When she finally did get away from her, it was only for her to come to Canada from England and then take control of her life again. But, she finds out that pain can stop this overbearing, hurtful woman from entrancing her again. She finds a solution to this but gives Wyatt a heart-attack every time she does it. Then again, with someone trying to kill her, she is constantly in pain. When she finds out the extent to which her mother took her suffocating ways, she has no choice but to confront her and put an end to her domineering mothering. She’ll have Wyatt and the rest of the Argeneau’s by her side and her sisters will have their freedom.

    Lynsay Sands actually wrote a character that I hated. Martine was a bitch! She got under my skin, pissed me off and was just damn rotten. Understandably, she had her reasons, but she took being a doting mother just a little too far. It takes near death and threats for her to finally leave her children alone, return home and confess all to her husband. Then comes the weepies for me when El's father shows up and my heart just bursts.

    Like I said in the beginning, Lynsay Sands just enthralls me. She writes stories that are so intriguing and has you turning page after page. She's fluent, fun and her writing is just plain wonderful. Again, she amazes me that she is still writing the Argeneau series and keeping it fresh and entertaining. I will be devastated if she ever decides to stop writing about this wonderful family.

    When I first started exploring the paranormal genre years ago, Lynsay Sands' Argeneau series is one of the first I discovered. (We're on book twenty seven, guys. This series is no joke.) You would think after all of this time taking a hiatus from the long continuing storyline, there would be some confusion. I admit, I was wondering if that issue would arise here. If you're like me and want to return to the Argeneau world, don't hesitate. Ms. Sands did a wonderful job integrating me back into recent events, and refreshing me about her immortals without affecting my interest in the central plot.

    I liked the fact that the immortal in this scenario was the female. It's not exactly uncommon, but more often, it's the other way around. Elspeth Argeneau was strong, level-headed, and intelligent with a sense of humor to boot. She's a heroine that I really enjoyed getting to know. Over hundred and forty years old, she's considered young in comparison to the other ancient family members like her mother. But even in her "youth" she's

    past the time when she should be leaving the nest and struggling for her own independence. That's exactly what she did when she moved from England to Canada...or perhaps a more apt description would be

    to Canada.

    Elspeth has been nothing short of enslaved by her mother for more than a century. Think about the most controlling and overbearing parent you know, then multiply that by a million. Add mind control, and incredible power and influence? You have Martine. After tragically losing her husband and children centuries before, she took the role of protective mother to a whole new, scary level.

    Her free will had been taken away for years, her ability to choose her own path. Just when she was attempting to spread her wings and finally fly, her mother shows up with the intent to drag her home. You'd better believe that she wasn't just going to fall in line and go meekly. Elspeth sets out to outsmart her, and hold onto her new life and freedom.

    Wyatt MacKay is the landlady's grandson who's visiting her in the downstairs apartment. When Elspeth comes face to face with the ex-special forces man for the first time, she finds him attractive, but had more important matters weighing on her mind. The same couldn't be said for Wyatt, who seemed to be at a loss for words and struggling to contain his shock. Searching for something in her eyes that doesn't seem to be there. There's more to this brooding man than meets the eye...but then again she has a few secrets of her own. I loved Wyatt for her almost immediately. He had a calmness, and a strong and capable presence about him without being "alpha" or bossy. His one weakness was the power this woman had to leave him breathless without even trying.

    Elspeth struggles to come to terms with the fact that her independence could be threatened in more ways than one. She's not in any way, shape or form looking for a life mate, but that doesn't stop fate from intervening when we least expect it. On top of that, mysterious "accidents" keep piling up, and the tension is mounting with the rogue hunters who are already dealing with their own mess. With her extensive family and a very protective Wyatt standing as bodyguard, they race to find the person responsible as the attacks gain momentum. I enjoyed this little mystery, and the moments of suspense thrown in, though I could have perhaps done with a little bit less of them. The book dragged a shade in the middle, and I feel like the emotional punch could have been stronger between the main couple. But overall, I found

    to be quite the refreshing and entertaining read.

    If you're looking for a paranormal book that has plenty of action with a little mystery thrown in, pick this one up. It could be just what you're in the mood for. I'll be keeping my eye on the series in the hopes that G.G. eventually gets his own full length story!

    Well, once again we have another Argeneau book that was good but still nothing like those first books that I become addicted to full of humor and romance (sometimes a numerous attempt at romance) but this was a really good story, multi level plots and a decent romance. Sadly the humor I loved has been missing for many books now and has not returned.

    We have the worse mother in centuries here, she can take over the minds of her children and make them do whatever she wishes (we had 4 kids, I might

    Well, once again we have another Argeneau book that was good but still nothing like those first books that I become addicted to full of humor and romance (sometimes a numerous attempt at romance) but this was a really good story, multi level plots and a decent romance. Sadly the humor I loved has been missing for many books now and has not returned.

    We have the worse mother in centuries here, she can take over the minds of her children and make them do whatever she wishes (we had 4 kids, I might not agree but I understand) but when she is still doing it 142 years later I think we can safely say she wins the Mommy Dearest Award hands down.

    El has escaped her mother's evil influence in England and started a life of her own in Canada which has become short lived since after 6 weeks her mother shows up with her 2 sisters held under the influence and begins several plots to basically capture her and take them all back to England. Believe it or not this is not the worst thing happening to El and then add to the fact she has discovered her Lifemate in Wyatt who actually fell instantly in love with Elspeth four years ago but has absolutely no memory of it.

    Now let us throw in that somebody seems to be trying to kill her and the "whodunnit" actually was very entertaining plus Wyatt just happens to be a cross between Canada's version of a Seal and has worked as a bodyguard for the last few years so obviously he is going to guard her and romance ensues.

    A side note here is that we get to see so many characters from previous books I had to stop and remember who a few of these people were , I loved that about this book and this series in general, old couple don't just disappear.

    Here is the bottom line: This was a very entertaining story, loved the characters, loved the plot and most of the secondary characters were interesting/entertaining but I am still holding out hope that we can get back to those stories in those early books that made me laugh and had plots that while making me laugh were serious in nature many times. So 4 Stars for a great story and still wishing for that humor to return to this series that made me love it to begin with years ago.

    ARC REVIEW

    Argeneau #27, What I love about this series is that they can be read as a stand alone. Even with as big as this family is and all the characters where it would be easy to get lost in all the characters Sands is really good about that in this one there were only four, five extra Argeneau couples, including my favorite couple Marguerite and Julius, as well as some family members who haven't found their life mates yet, and a couple of humans; despite the large cast of characters it's so

    ARC REVIEW

    Argeneau #27, What I love about this series is that they can be read as a stand alone. Even with as big as this family is and all the characters where it would be easy to get lost in all the characters Sands is really good about that in this one there were only four, five extra Argeneau couples, including my favorite couple Marguerite and Julius, as well as some family members who haven't found their life mates yet, and a couple of humans; despite the large cast of characters it's so easy to follow. The third person POV mainly follows Elspeth and some of Wyatt. This this still running parallel timeline wise with Immortal Nights and Immortal Unchained. Another thing I love about this series is the science behind their immortality and how they get all grumpy about being called vampires. Sands is such a talented writer for being able to continue on with this series without it getting boring, and refreshing past couples stories in the current book without over explaining or making it feel redundant.

    After 140 years of being under her mother's over protective thumb Elspeth was finally able to escape and move out on her own. She been working with the Rogue Hunters helping them sort through their tip line. After checking out one of those calls and getting attacked my a unbalanced human Elspeth comes home to her quant little apartment to find not only her Mother but her twin sisters as well who've come for an unwelcome visit. In need of blood and rest Elspeth's Mom keeps trying to get Elspeth to take blood from the gorgeous landlady's grandson who just happened to be visiting also. Elspeth is able to resist her mother and she comes to realize being in pain helped to resist her mother. Wyatt was surprised to find Elspeth living in his grandmother's upstairs apartment and even more surprised to realize that she doesn't even remember him.

    Wyatt knows something is up so he follows Elspeth, after Wyatt catches up Elspeth realizes Wyatt could be her life mate then she gets pushed in front of a car and Wyatt learns what she is and what he is to her. Attempts on her life keep happening and Wyatt is determined to keep her safe. With these coinciding with her Mother's appearance in town no one is for if it's her or someone else is behind the attacks. In one of the attempted attacks, donuts laced with cyanide, Wyatt almost dies and Elspeth brings him over. But it only gets worse before it gets better.

    Overall, this was such a fun read, it brought back several women from the earlier books that I loved and the story was so good. Elspeth's dastardly mother and what she did was reprehensible at least her annoying sister were redeemable in the end. Wyatt and Elspeth were just wow, I loved them together. I want G.G. to get his own story.

    As always, I enjoyed this book. I love this series, and all the characters.

    This is actually making me mad. Instead of fun and laughs, we get a controlling, by mental manipulation after 150 years of life, mom. It is like being in prison and not funny at all. Anger at the horrible family. They used to be fun but this is not fun. The twins are spiteful, actually spiteful, with over drinking blood that isn't even theirs when they know their sister NEEDS it. This isn't funny. I want to beat the shit out of the sisters and the mother, especially the mother, she needs to die.

This isn't funny. I want to beat the shit out of the sisters and the mother, especially the mother, she needs to die. It should be against immortal law to control another immortal for any reason past a certain age unless it is a danger. Controlling another's life just because you can and want them to live like you want them to. Martine is horrid and so far this is not fun. I switched from one book to get light reading and want to scream because this isn't light and fun.

    update-

    OK, That's it. I think this has to be the last one. Continued on and even more frustrated, actually screaming, so frustrated. Books shouldn't make people so mad! Martine is horrid, horrid. The last 14 books have been 2 stars to 3 (sometime 3 1/2 but never bumped up). Before that, some books were 4 and 5 stars, only a few below that. This isn't going to be above that.
