Vampires Are Forever by Lynsay Sands
Woken before the crack of dawn to pick-up Thomas Argeneau from the airport is not Inez Urso’s idea of starting a good day. To make matters worse, Thomas leaves the airport without her. When she catches up to him in his hotel room she has plenty to say. It’s too bad that Thomas doesn’t understand Portuguese, because few of her angry words are in English. Still, the woman fascinates him from the moment he opens the door.
Marguerite Argeneau has gone missing and her family is in a panic. Thomas has been sent to England to track down his aunt from her last known whereabouts, and Bastien has sent one of his employees, Inez, to help. When Thomas realizes he has no blood, Bastien suggests he drink from Inez and then wipe her memory. From there it gets progressively more difficult. Someone wants them out of the picture, and they have no qualms in killing them if need be. Their search for Aunt Marguerite isn’t turning out to be very successful. If help doesn’t arrive soon, Thomas and Inez may not live long enough to unravel the mystery.
Vampires Are Forever is the 8th book in the Argeneau series by the very talented Lynsay Sands. I've been reading this series for a while. When I need a good light vampire romance book to read, I look for Sands!
If your familiar with this series, then you know you don't exactly have to read it in order. They all star a different couple, that is based around the Argeneau family. I always was a fan of Thomas Argeneau from the first joke he cracked. He is the "younger" of the Argeneau family, and isn't really taken as serious as he should be. But he starts to prove his seriousness when he meets a feisty woman who yells at him in Portuguese. How could this little woman fit all that voice inside her?
The woman in question is Inez Urso. A business associate of Thomas & her boss being the stern Baisen Argeneau.
She's an excellent worker and loyal to the business, but can she still be loyal to a business of vampires? One of which being her to-be life mate? She's worked so hard to get where she is now in the company... she won't give up so easy.
Another good read from Lynsay Sands! I've enjoyed this whole series, but I found this novel to lack the magnetic attraction process between Inez and Thomas. Maybe it's because they were mostly worried about Thoma's missing aunt, but I found knowing they were to be each others life mate so early on, lost some of the excitement. That's just me though. I still found the book a fun read, and well written as always. I found could have been a great novella more so than a book though. It felt like a middle story in the series. But I was glad to finally read Thomass story! If your a fan of this series, it's worth the read.
