  • Make me fall in love with your characters and you get all the stars!!!Stars are always a good thing, right?Okay, sorry about that.So, this book has an awesome female character named after a product to clean out your drains - Drina. But, don't hold that against her because she is a feminist's dream-girl when you are a feminist but still love sappy romance stories with big, strong, gorgeous men who are awesome oh, is it just me? Please don't make me hand in my feminist card! It's the only one that [...]


  • The Reluctant Vampire, Argeneau number fifteen(!), was my favorite of Sands' light vampire romances in a long time. The matching making continues, as rogue hunting Drina gets a chance to check out vampire Harper – who is still guilt ridden over losing his lifemate during her 'Turn' – while they are both pulling 'babysitting' duty for fangless teen vamp Stephanie - who is still in danger from her insane maker.The last few "Hunter" books in particular had started to feel overly familiar, but i [...]


  • Jumping into an established series with book 15 can risky, but THE RELUCTANT VAMPIRE amply rewarded my daring. Sands interweaves details about the Argeneau vampires and this story’s main love interests without ever sacrificing the forward momentum of the narrative, and I was caught up in the story from page one. Drina and Harper’s romance was very effective as a stand alone (hot, hot, hot!), and while there were some details about the plot that went over my head, that just further motivates [...]


  • 2.5*5.5/10The only interesting thing about this book was discovering Steph's potential and I hope we'll see soon enough what her powers stand for.Stephanie's jokes and taunts are funny in the beginning, but considering her age and how many times she uses this trick, they quickly become annoying. I couldn't stand how everyone manipulated Harper so easily, and how he so easily falls for what they say.Drina's character's not very well defined: she's presented like the caring and affectionate type b [...]


  • This is the first one in awhile from the series that I enjoyed. Her earlier books were great but the newer ones are a bit boring now


  • 3.5 STARSThis was a great and entertaining read, quick and fun. I had a nice time reading this book. I loved reading about characters that had been left aside in the previous installments. I still kinda miss the original Argeneaus from the first books though. Still it was a sweet comeback from some of the terrible last books I had read in this series. It made me wanna read more of this series again.In this installment we get to read Harper's HEA. I am very ashamed to admit that I truly don't rem [...]


  • I've never actually laughed so much it hurt while reading a book, but I certainly did with The Reluctant Vampire. I think Ms. Sands had the inner track on my funny bone this time around because I simply could not stop giggling and snickering and even the last chapter left me with a goofy smile on my face. How did she do it? I’ll share how I think she did it. First she had poor unsuspecting Harper who’s agonizing over internal angst and he gets sideswiped by an Aunt Marguerite special deliver [...]


  • Finally! Another Argeneau Novel to quench my thirst for a little while. I am a HUGE fan of this author. She knows I stalk her website and own every novel in the series including the ones with the original covers! I have begged and pleaded for her to make me the life mate of Bricker in one of her books. I have interviewed her several times on the blog and even hosted a reading challenge featuring her books. So it is no surprise that when the publisher sent me this book for review, I moved it to t [...]


  • This is my FAVORITE Lynsay Sands book! Harper lost his lifemate during the turn and has become secluded and nursing his depression and his pain. He still in Port Henry with Elvi, Victor, DJ, and Mabel. Those two couples just left for their honeymoons but they left young Stephanie McGill a new edendente (a sane no fanger) who just came to live at the bed and breakfast because she can't go back to her old life because Leo the no fanger who took her wants her back to use as a broodmare to replace t [...]


  • This is the fifteenth novel in the Argeneau/Rogue Hunter series and, as usual, it is full of unique vampires, engaging humor, apprehensive situations, attempted murder and seductive romance. This may be the sexiest, most sensual of all the Argeneau books and is Drina and Harper's story.Set in Port Henry again, where most of the mortal residents know about and love their vampires, fans of the series will be glad to know that Jackie's partner, Tiny, and Mirabeau are back as is Teddy, Allesandro, S [...]



  • As a devout follower of Sands’ Argeneau Series I look forward to each book as it is released. In THE RELUCTANT VAMPIRE the author introduces a new heroine from the Spanish side of the family. Aunt Marguerite who is one of Sands’recurring characters and a ‘spot on’ vampire matchmaker has engineered events to place Drina in Harper’s path. Even though Harper had recently lost a ‘life mate’ odds are it would be rather impossible to have another show up so soon. In this case Sands inser [...]


  • Reviewed by Mona at RexRobotReviewsLynsay Sands does it again with her newest Argeneau novel – The Reluctant Vampire. Aunt Marguerite is at it again with her match making tendencies. But what do you do when you encounter a reluctant vampire? Well you hunt them down of course! Harper, who has already buried one life mate, is not looking for another. But Drina shows up he just can not seem to keep his mind or his hands off her. With a little nudge from their charge, romantic havoc is in the air. [...]


  • Jumping into a long running series with book 15 is risky, but I certainly enjoyed myself. The relationship between the hero and heroine was effective as a stand alone (and smoking hot). Details about the Argeneau vampires were sprinkled at intervals in the story, and I never felt lost. There'd were some details about Stephanie's plight and Leonius's actions that could have been clearer, but that just further motivates me to go back and enjoy the previous books in the series. As a Paranormal roma [...]


  • I'm still liking this series!  ♦ I really loved Stephanie in this one; she's only 15 years old but she was so funny!! Probably one of the funniest characters in the entire series.  And manipulative, too.  ♦ Also, Harper and Drina are probably one of the hottest H/h so far. Man, there was some thick sexual tension and all their sex scenes were steamy, steamy; they were doing it all over the place the foyer, in the hallway, in the pantry, in the snow ♦ I also liked that I got to see m [...]


  • A really sweet addition to the Argeneau series! Very hilarious, as usuald i do believe the steam factor might have been slightly higher in this one than some of the past bookswhich in my opinion is a PLUS!! :)


  • New York Times bestseller, Lynsay Sands latest in her beloved paranormal romance series, An Argeneau Novel, “THE RELUCATANT VAMPIRE just released by Avon Books this past May is a supernova of a read. It’s entertaining and engaging fleshed out characters with their wit and charm just explode into a million stars of excitement that I could not help myself but read through the night. Even a Vampire gets the blues. Harper Stoyan still blames himself for his lifemates death. Thankful that his fri [...]


  • Now that so many immortals have been paired with their lifemates, they need time off from their roles as enforcers to take their honeymoons. That means that the enforcers will be down a few hunters. Cue Aunt Marguerite, who never seems to miss an opportunity to set immortals up with their lifemates. Marguerite decides to arrange to send Drina Argenis (from the Spanish side of the Argeneau family) to help guard the young edentate Stephanie. Drina is eager to meet Harper but nervous because he is [...]


  • I was quite surprised when I found I rather enjoyed this story. I originally overlooked it because I wasn't sure I'd care to read it; Lynsay Sands stories are all hit or miss, in my opinion. I have a few I liked, read a few I thought were really poor, and I skipped this when I saw it in a $.50 box. Well, I wound up getting it anyways, just for shits and giggles.Again, I was quite surprised that I ended up enjoying this story. By the back cover blurb, I wasn't sure I would. The storyline didn't s [...]


  • Review originally posted here: thebookpushers/2011/05/25/Publisher: AvonPublish Date: May 31st, 2011How I got this book: NetGalleySands is back with the 15th book in her Argeneau Series! Many times when authors carry out a series like this for so long, the books can get old and repetitive, however Sands has a way of keeping each book somewhat new and fresh.Drina is a Rogue Hunter from Spain, and has been called over to help out with bodyguard duty for a newly turned teenage vampire. Harper, her [...]


  • Installment number fifteen in Lynsay Sands' series about the Argeneau vampires, The Reluctant Vampire introduces the Argentis branch of the family, one of the variations with roots in Spain. Drina is a rogue hunter with a very interesting past and due to Marguerite's indication, she ends up with babysitting duty in the small city of Port Henry. She's supposed to take care of Stephanie, a teenage girl we met a couple of books prior, and while at it meet Harper, her potential life-mate.Harper is s [...]


  • “The Reluctant Vampire by Lynsay SandsHarper Stoyan, lost his first lifemate during her turning into a vampire. Harper never thought he would get over the death of his life mate Jenny, or even have the possibility of meeting another lifemate during his life time. Harper has done nothing but blame himself for Jenny's death ever since. He has not even allowed himself to look at another female, or so much as smiled in the direction of one since that time. This will all soon change when a Spanish [...]


  • Sois was definitely better the second time! I guess it's because I managed to read Tiny and Beau's story and I had a better view on the story. Harper was an interesting character. I really felt sorry for him about his life mate dying and then I got curious, well, because the truth is, immortals don't get new life mates so soon. So something was fishy from the beginning. I was quite surprised to even discover that Harper got his own story after knowing that he was settled with that Jenny someone. [...]


  • Alexandrina “Drina” Argenis is a rogue hunter. She has been sent to help protect Stephanie McGill who is a new turn with some amazing powers from Leonius, who wants her for breeding. The truth, however, is Marguerite knows that her life mate is at the house. Harpernus “Harper” Stoyan is still reeling with the loss of his supposed life mate. He hasn’t left the area but instead just tortures himself with the memories because he feels he doesn’t deserve happiness ever again. Drina knows [...]


  • I liked this book, but I am betting not for the reason the author wanted me to. I found the couple to be quite blah, what really made the book interesting was the way that Stephanie egged them both on. Her freakishly strong powers seem to have put her way ahead of where her abilities should be, allowing her to see life mates and read pretty much anyone's minds. Stephanie uses this to her advantage and plays with Drina and Harper. Drina realizes it and decided to take her help where ever she can. [...]


  • After the last two books I was a little reluctant to read this book I have to admit. The last two books left me with the feeling that this series was winding down. I decided to buy the book when I was killing time at store with my little one and I'm glad I did. This book is nothing like the last two books. It was a very enjoyable read from start to finish with more explosive scenes. The plot was smooth and kept me guessing. The characters were likable and beautifully written. I even liked the cr [...]


  • Drina comes to Canada on a security mission hoping to meet her lifemate. Unfortunately, Harper recently lost a lifemate during the turning and isn't open to the idea of a new one. She is there to watch over Stephanie who was recently turned after being kidnapped by a mad vampire. There are a lot of recent lifemate pairs who show up so it is nice to see them again, although my favorites aren't there.Drina has certainly had and interesting life and seems pretty cool. I didn't get much of a read on [...]


  • Um I read this book a while ago, but for some reason, my review never was posted anywhere O.o I know that's a rarity because even if it's 4am I'm generally posting the review of the book I just finished. Anyrate, I liked this book, it was a little less on the romance aspect and more on the adventure side. It's hard to explain, but it just didn't have the pizazz the earlier books had, however I still enjoyed it immensely.


  • Definitely not one of her best. This book didn't have enough of a plot to be published, imo.And the raunch factor was 1) a turnoff, 2) never felt real just forced. Glrrgh. I don't think porn is Sands' forte.Lynsay, please dump the plot direction that you took when the Rogue Hunters series started, and go back to doing what you do best. I loved the old books, but this one and the last came pretty close to being wall-bangers for me.


  • A lifemate match between Drina and HarperWhat a great read! A loveable and humorous story with characters that have loveable characteristics. I liked the teen Stephanie, Mucho. She made the story fun for Drina and Harper! Oh! The part with the kitty? Most Def. funny! Does Stephanie have a story? I think it will be most excellent with her newly-vamp-excelled skills. Awesomeness that.
