    Title: Twice BittenSeries: Argeneau #27Author: Lynsay SandsRelease date: March 27, 2018Cliffhanger: No HEA(view spoiler)[Yes (hide spoiler)]When I first started exploring the paranormal genre years ago, Lynsay Sands' Argeneau series is one of the first I discovered. (We're on book twenty seven, guys. This series is no joke.) You would think after all of this time taking a hiatus from the long continuing storyline, there would be some confusion. ...

    Twice Bitten de Lynsay Sands narra la historia de Wyatt y Elspeth.Despues de que las ultimas novelas de esta saga no hubieran sido lo que esperaba, no sabia que me encontraria en esta lectura, pero por suerte, este libro me devolvio mi esperanza con esta serie, obviamente no es tan impresionante como las primeras partes ( esas son inmejorables ) pero la verdad es que estuvo mas que aceptable.La historia de Elspeth y Wyatt me gusto mucho, es muy d...

    This is actually making me mad. Instead of fun and laughs, we get a controlling, by mental manipulation after 150 years of life, mom. It is like being in prison and not funny at all. Anger at the horrible family. They used to be fun but this is not fun. The twins are spiteful, actually spiteful, with over drinking blood that isn't even theirs when they know their sister NEEDS it. This isn't funny. I want to beat the shit out of the sisters and th...

    I love reading Lynsay Sands. Whether it’s her Paranormal, Contemporary or her Historical Romance series, I always feel fulfilled after reading one of her stories. I can continually count on her to write fun and interesting characters, to constantly bring a smile to my face and to always have a little bit of mystery to make everything interesting. Twice Bitten is exactly what I expected from her.Wyatt was totally unexpected. A mortal who fell in...

    ARC REVIEW Argeneau #27, What I love about this series is that they can be read as a stand alone. Even with as big as this family is and all the characters where it would be easy to get lost in all the characters Sands is really good about that in this one there were only four, five extra Argeneau couples, including my favorite couple Marguerite and Julius, as well as some family members who haven't found their life mates yet, and a couple of hum...
  • Douglas Meeks
    Well, once again we have another Argeneau book that was good but still nothing like those first books that I become addicted to full of humor and romance (sometimes a numerous attempt at romance) but this was a really good story, multi level plots and a decent romance. Sadly the humor I loved has been missing for many books now and has not returned.We have the worse mother in centuries here, she can take over the minds of her children and make th...
  • Sissy's Romance Book Review
    Twice Bitten by Lynsay Sands is book 27 in the Argeneau series. This is the story of Elspeth Argeneau and Wyatt MacKay. This can easily be a standalone book. Elspeth is part of the Argeneau family and even if she is a 140 year old vampire she has lived a somewhat shelter life but always a controlling one by her mother. Elspeth mother had taken the lost of her family hard and became obsessed with keeping Elspeth save and in her control. But Elspet...

    4-4.5 starsThis was a really good story. I liked both Elspeth and Wyatt and enjoyed their story.Elspeth is an immortal that is 142 years old and just now getting out on her own. Elspeth has tried to gain her freedom before but her mother is very controlling, a lot more than Elspeth realized until she moved out on her own. Elspeth got a teaching job in Canada and moved away from her family but with 6 weeks, her mother shows up for a "surprise visi...

    4.5 starsNegatives. A few spots that were either slow or repetitive. Not many, and not enough to interfere with the enjoyment of the story. But, enough I noticed and felt the need to mention them. I don't remember seeing any typo's, etc. This one is loaded with a few mysteries and they all get tangled together to make it more difficult for the Rogue Hunters to unravel. Elspeth is slap dab in the middle of it all and trying to avoid her mother's s...

    ***ARC Provided by the Publisher via NetGalley***3.5 StarsI am not usually a fan of paranormal. However, I don't consider vampire (or immortal) books to be paranormal.I know. I know. They are...but I still like them. So, work with me here and can we all just pretend that this title isn't paranormal? Thanks, I appreciate it.Elspeth and Wyatt met years ago, but she doesn't remember him. Although, the reason for that is a lot deeper than a situation...
  • Gabriella
    This one started a bit slow but got better...and it was definitely better than the 2 previous books. And for the hundredth time...I hope the mad scientist plot line ends soon. I'm fed up with it. (It was only mentioned but that was enough for me to elicit some serious eye rolling..)I wish Wyatt would have been a bit more commanding as an ex-elite-soldier, but it was a good story with some of the earlier banter and levity. But gripping at the same...
  • Clarice
    Love it. it is rare that you find your soul mate once in your life. It is even rarer when it happens twice. To find out that your Mother has stepped and made it possible that you don't even remember it! Elspeth has been trying to leave her controlling Mother's home for years. Now that she has moved away, she is working as an enforcer, also enjoying a taste of freedom. Thinking a fling would be fun and her landlady's grandson checks both boxes off...
  • Michele
    See the full review at HarlequinJunkie.comOne seriously controlling centuries-old mother had me ready to stand up and fight for our heroine to finally be free to live her life. Along with this epic battle of wills, Twice Bitten was loads of fun with some action and a touch of mystery thrown in as well.For such a longstanding series, Lynsay Sands is still managing nicely to keep things fresh. For me, the Argeneaus are just as interesting as they w...
  • Maggie Brogden
    She is a skilled writer so I am never pulled out of the book by bad writing. She is always funny and always have scrumptious heroes. I had a bit of trouble with this set up bc her mother was borderline psychotic and her sisters ...arg. And not enough abt the bad guy so when he popped up, it was a little disorienting. But it was a fun ride and I enjoyed it and will buy whatever she writes next.
  • Debra Taylor
    This book was laugh out loud funny ! Lynsay Sands scored again with this book. I loved Elspeth and Wyatt ! They were amazing characters and this book had so much going on in the story that it's hard to choose just one shining moment. I had to feel sorry for poor Elspeth because of everything that kept happening to her. Over and over again she proved her strength. She was such an amazing heroine who had the patience of a saint for putting up with ...
  • Darcy
    I liked this one, thought the romance was good. Elspeth was a bit blah, as was Wyatt, but they worked together. I was stunned with Elspeth’s mother and her actions. I was very glad that she got called out on her actions and forced to stop. I really liked Elspeth’s friendship with Wyatt’s grandmother, wish that she would have been brought in on the secret of Immortals. But who really stole the book for me was Gigi. I loved him, loved his uni...

    I'm not usually into vampire romance, though I used to read my fair share of paranormal romance. I really enjoyed some of Lynsay Sands' historical romances though, so I thought I'd give this one a spin. Pro tip: They're not vampires, they're Atlanteans with some highly advanced technological stuff that basically give them characteristics of what we'd call a vampire. I love that Sands gives a scientific, technical reason for why the "immortals" ar...

    TWICE BITTEN But Not Shy at All about an overprotective mother! She’s a pain but does wonders for the Argeneau series. I voluntarily reviewed an advance readers copy of this book. No remuneration was exchanged and all opinions presented herein are my own except as noted.This post is based-on the Mass Market Paperback editionI was so glad to read this book because, while I felt Sands was starting to ...
  • Angela Lover of all Books No Matter How Horrid They Are ❤❂☠
    This book is a 3.5 no higher no less.We have meet Elspeth in previous books however she is seen so little in 26 books that I did not remember who she was. When I read the blurb for this book I was a bit hesitant because I did not want to deal with new characters when Lucian and Co. are in Venezuela trying to save the world. To be honest I could have done without this book. I am not saying that this book was not good, because it was, but just the ...

    “Vampires are considered sexy nowadays, while immortals . . . No one’s even heard of immortals.”It’s been quite some time since I picked up an Argeneau novel. However, after cracking open Twice Bitten, it really didn’t take long for Elspeth and Wyatt remind me why I so enjoyed this series at one time. They are, after all, light-hearted, easy-going romances—nothing too serious even though there are serious moments throughout. And that...
  • Victoria
    Love Wyatt! He never gives up and is very supportive of El even if when she doesn't know what's true or not... thanks to her sad cause i really liked Martine. With Wyatt's training and background, El may just possibly have a new partner as a rogue hunter...yay!And, Thank you soo much for bringing in the original characters from the first books in this series!! It was so much fun seeing what they've been upto these days :D. I'm so happy f...
  • S Allred
    As with the rest of the Argeneau series this book is a book you will not want to put down. Wyatt can't believe that the woman he had been looking for for 4 years since he met and fell for was standing in his grandmothers apartment, and worse she has no memory of meeting him. He is determind to find out why, but Elspeth is having alot of "accidents" and is required to have some bodyguards and he makes sure he's one of them. While they unravel the ...

    Wyatt and Els Love Saga! 4.25*****A classic case portraying overprotective mothers, in the worst light. Martine has ruined Elspeth’s four years with her life mate by wiping her memory to keep her and her twin sisters safe after her traumatic 230BC ordeal!! ... Talk about a lack of closure, severe depression/ prolong grieving, and a dire need of counseling. Great plot with P.A... and Wyatt’s conversion was forth with hilarity. Loved it, but wa...
  • Heather andrews
    Wyatt is sometines so preoccupied in his thoughts he doesn't pay attention to where he's going, "darn, Elspeth had some fine nightwear and a killer body, he thought and then nearly trampled her when she stopped abruptly in the bathroom. “Sorry,” he whispered..." When Wyatt passes out, the man passes out and is real cuddly when he gets up, “sorry, I should have put you on top,” he mumbled sleepily, wrapping one arm around her waist and dra...
  • Julie
    3.5 starsOff the bat...I did not care for Martine, Elspeth’s mother, at all! I grasped the reasoning, but she was positively horrid!! Otherwise, I had fun with the storyline. Wyatt was my favorite along with G.G., and Elspeth grew on me once she got her mind away from her mom’s influence. It’s been a good while since I’ve read an Argeneau book, but had no difficulties following along here! Fun dialogue, zany characters, and a bit of suspe...
  • Zara West
    This book is well into the Argeneau series so I was afraid, I might have missed a lot of the background story. But Sands does a great job weaving in everything a new reader should know about her world. I loved the heroine who's quirky, a bit naive, but oh so brave, despite being mangled several times.

    Plot: 3.5/5Characterisation: 3.5/5Prose: 3/5How much I enjoyed it: 4/5While I enjoy the latest few books of the series which doesn't involve insta-lust and a twist on new lifemates, I'm kinda bummed that we're still stuck in the same timeline and have no news from the new arc introduced in Immortal Unchained (Book #25).
