Marguerite Argeneau finally decides to start a career after seven hundred years. She is learning to be a private investigator. She believes her first case is fairly simple, just locate an immortal’s mother but someone does not wish her interference.
Julius Notte is there to offer protection to Marguerite after someone tries to take off her head. He is certain that this is the woman meant to be his lifemate. After five hundred years it is time to court her in every way.
Marguerite is surprised to awake and find a man standing over her holding a sword. Someone is definitely sending a message about the assignment she has chosen. She wonders if she has any enemies in England. Tiny McGraw is her other private detective, her partner and equal, a great co-worker. He is there offering any assistance. Even though Tiny is there, Julius knows Marguerite is his responsibility. He heads Notte Construction, a successful family run company. He wishes he had been there when the intruder entered her room. He must make sure there are no more threats on her life. Marguerite feels an attraction toward Julius. Even though she has been around for all these years, her emotions and her life feel as if they have been frozen. Julius does know how to woo a woman; even though some believe after all these years he has forgotten. Unless he can find out who is trying to harm Marguerite, he just might lose his lifemate.
Vampire, Interrupted is a story filled with passion, romance and intrigue. The Argeneau family is unforgettable and leaves a lasting impression on this reader. All the characters lure the reader into their sensual romance as this fast-pace read spins into a charming tale to delight forever. With each story, as this one, I was so absorbed that it was hard to release them and say good-bye after the last page. Lynsay Sands depicts each character in a way that captures the reader and makes them fall in love with the Argeneau’s. They are so real it is hard to believe they are just drawn characters in this scrumptious read.
