A kiss doesn’t mean eternity . . .
Valerie Moyer doesn’t believe in vampires—until she is kidnapped by a fanged psychopath! After escaping her bloodthirsty captor, she’s through with creatures of the night. Until she finds herself under the protection of the darkly handsome Anders. Not only is she expected to accept that Anders is immortal, but also that she is the woman destined to be his life mate!
. . . Or does it?
Anders felt a connection to Valerie from the moment he cradled her bruised body in his arms. But before he claims her, he must destroy the vampire who almost stole her from him forever. His job would be easier if Valerie didn’t fight him every step of the way. Still, Anders loves a challenge, and the green-eyed beauty is worth fighting for!
Immortal Ever After is book 18 in Lynsay Sands Argeneau Vampire series and this story is Anders…who is a Enforcer who hunts rouge vampires. This story revolves around how Anders meets his life mate Valerie Moyer who along with four other woman have been kidnapped by a rouge vamp.
Valerie manages to save herself and the rest of the woman by attempting to escape a nightmarish hell of captivity What comes after this is true Lynsay Sands style; there is humor and action throughout the story. The storytelling in Immortal After was strong and very well written. The growth of the characters in this story was well executed...I enjoyed each and every one of them. Some of our most memorable characters throughout this series show up, but mainly Lucian who is head of the Enforcers and his wife Leigh…who is now pregnant. They added a extra lift to Immortal Ever After that kept me reading.
Now, this books gets 4 heels because I did feel that it was drawn out a little when it came to Anders finding out if Valerie was his life mate for sure. I understand that he had to get to know her and visa versa, but I felt Ms. Sands kind of dragged some in this and it also kept you from finding out more about the Rouge Ambrose until the very end of the book. I would have rather there had been more interaction with the bad guys throughout the story as opposed until the end.
Still…Lynsay Sands tackled the 18th book in this series with her usual quirky sense of humor and bodacious writing style. Anders and Valerie could be used as a couple to emulate as the author made a growing relationship between a Immortal & Mortal in the midst of trouble very easy and enjoyable to read.
I say buy it because it would well worth the money.
Also, Ms. Sands makes it so you really don't have to read this series in order as you're really able to figure out about past couples and how her vampires came to be...she always gives a little of the past in her present stories. I like that a lot because I personally don't always want to got back to the first book just to catch up to whats going on in a series. Especially if the book is like this...18th in the series.
