    3.5 StarsThis book was the best so far It was funnier then the other two I would have gave it a full 4 stars if the heroine didn t piss me off towards the end of the book with her stupid cowardly actions But even still a pretty good read I loved the hero he was so grumpy and cute

    This book series is getting better as it goes on There is some seriously funny situations in each book, like the priest in the first one who was trying to secretly feed the girl he suspected of being a vampire garlic, the scene in the second one where he s trying to convince her he s not a bloodsucking demon after she finds him sleeping in a coffin, and in this one where they go out at night to rob a blood bank Our heroine has been watching too much television and it s pretty funny Aww, who sThis book series is getting better as it goes on There is some seriously funny situations in each book, like the priest in the first one who was trying to secretly feed the girl he suspected of being a vampire garlic, the scene in the second one where he s trying to convince her he s not a bloodsucking demon after she finds him sleeping in a coffin, and in this one where they go out at night to rob a blood bank Our heroine has been watching too much television and it s pretty funny Aww, who s a good little robber You are Yes, you are So, in this one we have Kate, a book editor, who is trying to convince Luc, a vampire and vampire romance novel writer, to go on a promotional tour She s a bit on the pushy side, but it s a good thing because she finally pressures him into attending a week long conference for romance writers and their fans This is a tricky situation since he is a vampire Hilarity ensues Ouch That s awkward, man.I loved how when Kate realized he was a vampire she just got to work on finding him blood to drink This woman was dedicated to seeing to her author s comfort I wishpeople in the service industry were this un judgmental Gee, you ask for one smiley faced tattoo on your boob with the nipple as a nose, and suddenly everyone is telling you to put down the bottle of Jack Daniels SMH Note to self You have two boobs.Anyway, I m loving the fun and light cuteness of these books There wasn t even a bag guy or mystery in this one, and yet these vampires are always managing to get staked Not that I can judge them for that I would be a vampire for about 10 minutes before blowing the vampire secret existence thing and finding an angry mob with pitchforks at my doorstep Hey, what can I say I have a big mouth I m honest Jilly s at it againOh crap, I almost forgot to mention that these books also bring on the smut big time There was another hilarious condom scene Although, aren t most condom scenes hilarious Well, maybe it s just me

    This is 3 in the recommended reading order for the Argeneau series of 30 paranormal romances so far , but it was the first Argeneau book to appear, in September 2003 In it Lucern Argeneau, age 612 and the oldest of Marguerite s kids, finds his life mate at long last in his editor, Kate C Leever Now bear with me, cause this gets complicated In the first third of this book Lucern s kid brother Etienne, age only a bit over 300, gets married to Rachel Garrett, and the story of how he got toge This is 3 in the recommended reading order for the Argeneau series of 30 paranormal romances so far , but it was the first Argeneau book to appear, in September 2003 In it Lucern Argeneau, age 612 and the oldest of Marguerite s kids, finds his life mate at long last in his editor, Kate C Leever Now bear with me, cause this gets complicated In the first third of this book Lucern s kid brother Etienne, age only a bit over 300, gets married to Rachel Garrett, and the story of how he got together with his bride wasn t told until the prequel Love Bites came out in January 2004 Then in July 2004 the world got the real sequel to Lucern s story, in which the middle brother Bastien Argeneau finds happiness with Kate Leever s cousin Terri That s Tall, Dark Hungry.Finally in November 2005,than a year later, the youngest of the Argeneau siblings, Lissianna, a mere 202 years old, is the first of the four of them to find a life mate in A Quick Bite I ve been reading the Argeneau books in the author s recommended reading order, which tells the siblings stories one after the other first Lissianna, then 2 Etienne, 3 Lucern here , 4 Bastien to come Curiously, they fit together seamlessly except for a few little tells for example, the whole thing about your life mate being the only one whose mind you can t read or control isn t fully developed yet in Lucern s story.These are all paranormal romances, and they involve the nicest vampires you could ever hope to meet, all because of the author s brilliant idea nanobots Vampires are from the lost continent of Atlantis, where advanced science developed self replicating nanobots to heal injuries quickly when injected into a person s bloodstream they also cured all diseases and prevented aging, and all they need is some of the person s blood, which of course needs to be replenished frequently.So there s a touch of science fiction for the backstory, and a feeble attempt in this book to explain what wasn t clear in 1 or 2 in the recommended order, mind, not publication order why the vamps developed mind reading and mind control, which is what lets them live undetected among us Not too convincing, something about nanobots in the brain Hmm.The vamps aren t quite immortal, because they can be killed by anything that completely overwhelms the nanobots for example, if there s a major injury and no blood sources around, the nanos will exhaust the vamp s own blood and that s it Also, as in this book, what a stake to the heart does is to stop the blood circulation so the nanos can t do the quick healing pull out the stake, get the heart beating again, and the vamp heals right up And sunshine is avoided as much as possible because it makes the nanos work overtime and use up blood so a nocturnal lifestyle is pretty much preferred but not totally necessary.The first two books in recommended order were light hearted comfort reading with a bit of action and danger this one is all that but it s also full of uproariously funny scenes with one delightful mishap after another It even takes meet cute up to the level of slapstick comedy Big laughs for me And the awful plot devices of romance novels are somewhat muted here misunderstandings arise rather naturally from the personalities of Lucern and Kate, who are well developed as self doubting introverts.There s meta humor too, because Lucern is a famous writer of vampire romances, which were just biographical, barely even disguising names of his family he is the fictitious author of A Quick Bite and Love Bites, and Kate is his editor who, with Marguerite s help, manages to persuade Lucern to attend a romance magazine s annual five day convention I suspect I ve read a glorious parody of such affairs if you ve been to one you might enjoy this book eventhan I did

    Third book in the series and I am still addicted The Argeneau of focus in this one was Lucern and he played the role of the curmudgeonly old vamp over 600 years old who was growing tired of life Enter his editor Kate C Leever Kate took over handling Luc when his old editor died of a heart attack Growing increasingly annoyed at his lack of communication she finally in a desperate bid flew to his house in Toronto to make him commit to an interview or a book tour or just to giving her Third book in the series and I am still addicted The Argeneau of focus in this one was Lucern and he played the role of the curmudgeonly old vamp over 600 years old who was growing tired of life Enter his editor Kate C Leever Kate took over handling Luc when his old editor died of a heart attack Growing increasingly annoyed at his lack of communication she finally in a desperate bid flew to his house in Toronto to make him commit to an interview or a book tour or just to giving her a phone number so she could contact him The funny is that Luc writes paranormal romance novels which of course are actually non fiction chronologies of his families lives but are sold as paranormal romance Reminds me of a certain J.R Ward Anywho Kate gets to Luc s house and of course slap stick comedy and misunderstandings abound Finally Luc agrees to do the R.T Thing just to get Kate out of his house and out of his life Poor Luc didn t realize he agreed to 5 days in New York at the Romantic Times Convention I know And Kate doesn t know he is a Vamp at this point so you just know it s gonna be all kinds of goodness It was fun following Kate and Luc s misadventures and steamy adventures while they wondered what that ringing was It s the Clue phone people answer it Seriously though it was very enjoyable and I am already slowly ingesting the 4th book in the series to see what Argeneau Vampire will end up in the Love Seat next

    I found the plot incredibly predictable, the characters weren t very interesting and lacked any real depth and nothing really happened in the story The entire book solely revolved around their relationship which had really obvious directionality There were a few very funny moments in the middle like when Luc is trying to find condoms and can t think clearly because all the blood is being rerouted from his head I was laughing my ass off at that, but that is the only real moment in the book tha I found the plot incredibly predictable, the characters weren t very interesting and lacked any real depth and nothing really happened in the story The entire book solely revolved around their relationship which had really obvious directionality There were a few very funny moments in the middle like when Luc is trying to find condoms and can t think clearly because all the blood is being rerouted from his head I was laughing my ass off at that, but that is the only real moment in the book that I actually felt engaged When you ve read a million of these I want him her but we can t be together books you really just want them to get on with it and can t be bothered with the whole angsty inner monologue about how they are too scared to risk everything for one another Of course they will Just get on with it already Usually when that kind of story unravels it is wrapped up in some bigger story line when they re wrapped up in the middle of some action or war but there was none of that in this book and so all that was left was a drawn out predictable angsty love story I m not sure why I keep coming back to these books because they are pretty similar in story considering that they circulate around a single family I would say that this has put me off reading anyof these, because it has, but then, I ll probably read them anyway I need vampires

    So this one was definitely a lot funnier than the last two.Like Lol funny I loved how grumpy and cute Luc was.Unfortunately the beginning was stale and it felt like I was rereading the previous books rather than the next in the series I have a feeling this is will be a recurring thing which makes me reluctant to read any furthersigh

    Good lord this heroine was annoying The book would have been five stars had she taken that down from an 11 to a 3.
