Lynsay Sands opens a new series within her famous Argeneau Novels with a light touch and her trademark humor, bringing to life a romantic comedy reminiscent of the early Argeneau books which captured the hearts and imaginations of her many readers!
"The Rogue Hunter" The Rogue Hunter (Argeneau Vampires, Book 10)lays the foundation for the council enforcers who are The Rogue Hunters, those who investigate rogue immortals breaking the council laws and bring them to justice who also investigate those mortals who have discovered the hidden world of the immortal people to make sure all stays hidden!
Garrett Mortimer is not overly thrilled to be headed to Canadian cottage country. Feeling his 800 years and a bit weary after the last hunt, duty and his boss, Lucian Argeneau, call upon him and his not 100 year old partner, Justin Bricker, to investigate what appears to be vampire bites on mortals. Based at the cottage of fellow rogue hunter, the intriguing Decker Argeneau Pimms, the two meet up with him to look into the situation. Mortimer and Decker find themselves slightly amused and indulgent of the younger Bricker, who hasn't yet lost so many of the appetites of life, and is sure there is nothing to find in the dark Canadian countryside except for the three pretty sisters next door!
Samantha Willan is a sharp-witted, excellent, overworked attorney, who is also very thin and clumsy by nature, which isn't helped by a chronic ear infection. Her self-esteem has also been crushed almost as flat as her physical figure appears to be, by a recent ex-boyfriend envious of her career success. Concerned for her health, her two sisters drag her to the family cottage for a holiday, expecting her to take a full break from work, but not counting on the exasperating calls from her overbearing boss for favors while she is out of the office. All Sam is looking for is a little time to be with her sisters, practically the only family she has left.
When the three enforcers and the three sisters meet, Mortimer is very dismayed to discover that instead of his dream girl, Jessica Rabbit, his life mate is Olive Oyl! How can it be possible that after so many years of waiting that Sam could be his life mate? Decker and Bricker convince him to get to know her, but Sam isn't looking for love or a life mate, even though her sisters think a little "fling" might be good for her!
What follows is a series of mishaps between the potential life mates out in the world of Mother Nature...helping Mortimer discover that while his life mate isn't his dream girl...she may be something much better! At the same time, Sam discovers that not all in this world can be answered in legalese, but perhaps it can be answered with love.
The Rogue Hunter is light and funny, with just the right amount of mystery and a surprise twist ending. Lynsay Sands leaves subtle clues leading us straight into the next book, "The Immortal Hunter" The Immortal Hunter: A Rogue Hunter Noveland waiting eagerly for more. She has once again created a wonderful ensemble cast of characters to support the featured main characters, which reminds me of "Tall, Dark, & Hungry" and some of the other light-hearted but well thought out Argeneau stories told so far. With her unique talent of alternating lighter and darker stories in the Argeneau Series, her amazing humor, and her ability to bring a paranormal world to reality, it's my suggestion that you don't miss "The Rogue Hunter!" As a book that will draw you into the expanding world of Lynsay Sands Immortals, I give it five stars and many times of reading pleasure! Enjoy!!
