Book Description

June 21 2010 Argeneau Novels (Book 2)

“Sands writes books that keep readers coming back for more.”

Katie MacAlister, author of A Girl’s Guide to Vampires

 

In the world of the sexy and seductive Argeneau family of vampires, true love is good from the first bite to the last. Love Bites is a classic from New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Lynsay Sands, the second volume in her much beloved Argeneau series—the  story of an achingly hot three hundred year-old bachelor immortal and the beautiful coroner he chooses as his lifemate. Paranormal romance just doesn’t get any tastier than this!

Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

A prequel of sorts to Sands's paranormal comedy, Single White Vampire, this lightweight romantic romp shoots for the easy laugh and often misses. The allure of vampires lies in their strength and seeming invulnerability, but Etienne Argeneau, this book's bloodsucking hero, is curiously incompetent when it comes to dispatching a crazed mortal named Pudge who's intent on lopping his head off. Twice, Pudge manages to injure Etienne to the point where he ends up in the morgue under coroner Rachel Garrett's care. But when Rachel gets in the way of attempt number three, Etienne rescues her in the only way he knows how-by turning her into a vampire. The story moves from mildly amusing to ridiculous when Rachel, in denial, insists that she's merely having a "wet dream" involving a sexy man who thinks he's a vampire. There's little tension between Etienne and Rachel, sexual or otherwise. Instead, Sands stretches the plot with conflicts stemming from minor misunderstandings. Her attempts at hip dialogue also fall flat (at one point, a 200-year-old vampire compliments Rachel by saying, "You're a happening chick, dudette!"). Those who enjoyed Sands's previous paranormal comedy of errors may eke a little enjoyment from these pages, but this isn't something vampire fans will want to sink their teeth into.

From Booklist

The second in Sands' deliciously sexy comedic series featuring the charismatic Argeneau clan (following Single White Vampire [BKL S 15 03] ) is a delight. This time the focus is on Etienne, a successful computer game designer who has become the target of a homicidal maniac called Pudge. The first time Etienne sees Dr. Rachel Garrett, it's in the hospital morgue where she removes a bullet from his apparently stilled heart. She doesn't recognize him when he is brought in again a week later as a charred corpse. Astounded to find a heart beat, she shields her "patient" from an axe-wielding Pudge, who attacks her instead. When Rachel regains consciousness, she discovers that Etienne has made her into a vampire to save her life. Rachel has to stay with Etienne to learn to control her teeth and drink blood, which she finds extremely unpalatable. Add one sexy cousin and a page-turning climax, and readers will be highly amused, very satisfied, and eager for the next Argeneau tale. Diana Tixier Herald

5.0 out of 5 stars 2nd in Lynsay's hit vampire series! Oct. 18 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Lynsay Sands’ hit SINGLE WHITE VAMPIRE was the first in her series of books about a modern day dysfunctional vampire family the Argeneaus. Love Bites is the second and takes up the story of Etienne, Lucern’s younger brother. (These are the books
that Lucern has been writing that everyone thinks are just vampire romances!)
Rachel Garrett has been bouncing between chill and fever and it had nothing to do with the dead man on the table before her. She works in a hospital morgue, after all, so seeing dead bodies were a just part of a work. It was the flu. She needed to be in bed resting, but the caseload was stacking up so there was no time to pamper herself. Only to find a dead body handsome, well that MIGHT be attributed to the flu. But after, when she jokingly apologizes for having to cut away the expensive slacks and the corpse replies, she feels entirely justified in fainting.
After a week’s recovery, she is back on the job when they bring in another body, this one totally burned from a car explosion. As Rachel begins to remove his possessions and tag the body, she is puzzled when the body seems less charred, and then the blackened flesh begins to desquamate, sort of like a snake shedding its skin. Worse, she detects a heartbeat. Just as her mind is trying to adjust to this bizarre situation, an ax-wielding madman rushing into the room screaming for her to get away from the body that is was a vampire. She’s horrified when she sees this nutcase is going to cut off the head of the man - who may not be dead. Not giving a thought, she jumps in front of him as he brings the ax down. Too late Rachel understands her stupid mistake. Etienne awakes to find Rachel dying.

4.0 out of 5 stars Once bitten, forever smitten? May 9 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the second in Lynsay Sands' vampire series, which began with Single White Vampire. However, it's actually set *before* SWV, so could be read before it. The reviewer below is incorrect, actually: in SWV, Etienne was engaged to Rachel; in fact, Lucerne and Kate attend Etienne and Rachel's wedding.
Etienne is 300 years old, born a vampire into a family of vampires. He's not too worried about being single, since he's sure that he'll find his one true love some day. But suddenly he has to make a choice. He's only allowed to 'transform' one human in his lifetime, and most vampires use that one transformation for the woman - or man - who will be their soul-mate. But his life has just been saved by Rachel Garrett, a mortician, who jumped in front of him when a madman was about to try to bleed him to death. Unfortunately, Rachel is the one who's got hurt, and she's dying. So what does he do? Let her die - or 'waste' his one opportunity, transform her, and risk remaining single and alone for eternity?
So he transforms her, and he and his family smuggle her back to his house. And, when she wakes up, he knows he will have to deal with her reaction to having been turned into a vampire without so much as a by-your-leave. And that's probably going to be the least of his worries, he thinks - apart from anything else, regardless of how many times he begs them, his family will probably ignore his wishes and tell her just how much of a sacrifice he's made for her. And that, he knows, is the last thing Rachel will want to hear. Coming to terms with being a vampire is one thing; discovering that the man in whose house she is staying has given up his chance of a lifetime's happiness is another. And the last thing Etienne wants is for Rachel to feel guilty.
