    Lots of funny, tons of steamy and loads of cute! Santo is searching for a "rouge" that has torched and murdered when the leads him next door to Petronella, Pet, a history professor baby sitting her young, but highly intelligent, nephew. After a little nudging from his Aunt by marriage, Santo test to see if he can read Pet's thoughts and realizes that she is his life mate. Pet quickly recognizes Santo and his family for what they really

He is a top priority target because he knows about, and has experimented on, immortals.Quinn Peter calls ...

    This is a good one. I enjoyed it immensely with one caveat.I don’t think it’s Lynsay’s fault, but I listened to the audiobook and there was one thing about it that detracted from the experience: Marguerite is portrayed by the reader as having an Italian accent, which is wrong. Yes, her husband is Italian, at least as much as someone who was born before there was an Italy or an Italian language could be. Somehow the reader and the producers ...

    I was kind of meh on this one. I didn't particularly like either of the main characters. And I'm not even sure why. :\

    This review was originally posted on Addicted To RomanceThe Trouble With Vampires is the latest release into the Argeneau series and I can't believe we are almost on number 30 in the series!!! Its incredible to see the growth in this series and you know....its not boring. I am still having a fun time with this world that Lynsay Sands has built. This book features Santos' story and a bit of a twist with the heroine that isn't the norm for what we ...
  • Malinda
    4 starsThis was a very good story. I liked Santo and Petronella and enjoyed their story. Petronella is a history professor that has an unusual background. Petronella (aka Pet) grew up in China and was the step-daughter to an immortal. Pet's family was killed except for a sister and after the both moved to the US and were adopted. Pet is single and her nephew is the closest she has to a kid.Santo is a civil engineer for his family's construction b...

    This one was just ok for me. I didn't really feel the I love you now lifemate connection that usually happens with couples in this series. Instead I was more interesting on both Pet and Santo's past. Pet because she knew about Immortals and Santo because of all the horrible things that happened to him. I thought the ending was a bit over the top with what happened to Pet's family, but am looking forward to seeing what happens to them.
  • Ana
    The story started off well enough...for the first few pages. Soon into the novel, it started feeling more like erotica than a fantasy novel. The relationship was intended (I believe) to be passionate but there is no build-up in the relationship save for physical attraction. I get that she is his "life mate" and he's supposed to be smitten but I can't accept how 60% into the book, all the characters have done is think about sex, perform sex or alm...

    After centuries of battling enemies both external and within himself, Santo Notte has yet to find his life mate and he certainly didn't think he'd find her in upstate New York. But when he meets history professor Petronella Stone while investigating a rogue immortal, things finally change for him. Pet just wants to keep her nephew safe and with danger lurking ever closer and sketchy neighbors all around her sister's house, she's not really sure w...
  • Christa
    Not my favorite Lynsay Sands, but not the worst either. Pet wasn’t too bad, her nephew was cute. But I couldn’t get into this one as much as others. It’s still an enjoyable series.

  • Dawn ♥ romance
    Another enjoyable Argeneau paranormal romance. Again a different interesting view of a relationship with an immortal. I liked the heroine with her good instincts and not putting up with the hero's non-communicative ways. Professor Pet is babysitting her genius nephew and she has her suspicions about the new neighbors who appear next door including giant size Santo.
  • Clarice
    You Go Girl. Lynsay, just finished Santo's story and it was great. Just knowing some of the things that he has gone threw in his life. Life has been hard for him. The only thing that was driving him was his need to find Dr. Dressier and putting him down. That was all until Santo met a woman Pet,and her nephew, Parker. Still not knowing the changes that these two people will make in his life. Pet, also has had a lift no no one Santo has met before...
  • Stacy McKitrick
    You’d think after 28 books in this series that the 29th might just feel like the same ol’ same ol’. But NOPE! Still hot romance. Still humorous. Still suspenseful. But a different story every time. I love the Argeneau family and hope the books continue for a long time to come.
  • Sissy's Romance Book Review
    The Trouble With Vampires by Lynsay Sands is book 29 in the Argeneau Series. This is the story of Santo Notte and Petronella 'Pet' Stone. I have read the previous book (and Loved it) but feel you can make this a standalone book if you wish to do so. Pet has come to watch her nephew Parker when she was asked to by her sister. Pet is a History Professor and her nephew is a very smart 6 year old. Santo is now hunting down the immortal rogue who capt...

    The Trouble with Vampires Argeneau, Book 29 I Picked Up This Book Because: I love this series. The Characters: Santo Notte: Petronella Stone: Margueritte Notte, Julian Notte, Parker Peters, Quinn Peters The Story: I find myself without much to say about this installment. I like Santo and Petronella together and I love little Parker. It will be interesting to see what happens with Pet’s twin, Quinn in the future. I’m a little behind on...
  • Angela Lover of all Books No Matter How Horrid They Are ❤❂☠
    This book is in a long series. There are times when a book that has been part of a long series the newer book tends to suck. You want the author to just give it up and start writing a new because the ideas are repetitive and it hurts the series in the long run. I have had many series destroyed because an author just cannot let it go. However for Ms. Lynsay Sands that is not the case for this book. The past two books however, Twice Bitten, was not...
  • Jeni
    I was torn on this one. I loved that the heroine wasn't the usual in these books..whining and crying and in general acting like an idiot. Pet was actually smart and logical. On the downside... the plot is getting old and Santo was basically Lucien 2.0. I'll continue with reading the series... but depending on how this Dressler thing goes, it may not be for much longer.
  • Princess_jime
    Ok. That's it, no more argeneaus for me.
  • *Not* Lash LaRue
    Strong 3.5: This book takes us back to the action, slowly though. Possible spoilers, so be warned!With book #29, (LS) finds a way to put a twist on explaining the Atlantean Immortals, shared dreams, and what has happened to the almost 3000 yr old vamp Santo. Spectacular history telling for heroine, Petinella and her twin Quin. Quin's past and upcoming tumultuous future should be an exciting and action filled book. Petinella seems to be a lad...

    See the full review at HarlequinJunkie.comThe Trouble With Vampires, Lynsay Sands’ twenty-ninth installment in her popular Argeneau series, brought with it some interesting twists, a smattering of suspense, and an adorably clueless couple swept away by their passion. Sounds fun, right?I still can’t believe that we’re twenty-nine books into the Argeneau series and I’m just as captivated as ever by this story arc and the engaging characters...
  • Teresa (Reads_Romance)
    I was a little nervous to re-start this much-loved series 29 (!?!?) books in. Paranormal romances tend to build over time and I was worried jumping in blind would leave me lost the whole book. I’ve read a few books in this series, but it’s been YEARS, and I remembered exactly nothing about them. After reading this book, I can confidently say you can hop in on this book and not be lost in the least. In my mind, a book is stronger if you can re...
  • LaBlue
    I love Lyndsay Sands and I love the Argeneau-Notte seriesAnd while I love all the books including this one, I find that it’s becoming books with filler and not enough romance. The filler can be anything from unnecessary descriptors or setting to ridiculous shenanigans by the extended cast of characters or villains. This book had a great pre story for the male and female leads. And their getting to know you was wonderful to read. But I don’t g...
    More of a 4.5 but goodreads denies the existence of half stars.For once, nobody does anything stewpid for lols. Yay. And the niggles are side characters or last minute drama.The h is aware of immortals, being as how her mother was one's lifemate. She's also an orphan because apparently her stepdad was an enforcer who was targeted by a crime ring. (I'd actually like to know what happened with that. I'm sure there are plans somewhere or it wouldn't...

  • Missy Jane
    Another wonderful installment of one of my favorite book series. There were a couple of spots where over explanation of minor details had me skipping forward, and the physical description of Pet was put in way late, but still a well-told paranormal romance.
