    Great Immortal Romance, can be read as a stand-alone. I really liked this book from start to finish. This was the 30th book in the Argeneau series and the first one that I have read. I thoroughly enjoyed it without feeling like I missed anything at all in not reading any of the previous books in the series. There was plenty of background information given to explain what was Great Immortal Romance, can be read as a stand-alone. I really liked this book from start to finish. This was the 30th book in the Argeneau series and the first one that I have read. I thoroughly enjoyed it without feeling like I missed anything at all in not reading any of the previous books in the series. There was plenty of background information given to explain what was going on and it was done in a way that completely fit in with the story and didn’t feel like added spots of background information just dumped in to inform readers new to the series. The two main characters were Magnus, an immortal that has been alive since the late 700’s A.D. and Allie who is mortal, but is his potential life mate. She is also the adoptive mother to an immortal boy named Liam from her neighbor and best friend. The book (or series for that matter) has a different origin story for Vampires or Immortals as they are called. They don’t like it when they are referred to as Vampires. Which is pretty funny in the story. “He will not burst into flames under the sun. The boy is an immortal, not one of your mythical vampires.” Though they have different origins, and have a few other differences, the fact that they get so offended is pretty silly considering they must be the origin of the Vampire myths. Especially since some of them have been around since more than 1300 years B.C. and they do have fangs and drink blood to survive. Plus they are very strong, have super speed, and can heal from just about any injury. The romance between Magnus and Ally is very sweet as well as sizzling hot. It seems newly mated couples can’t get enough of each other and their passion is overwhelming. There is also a storyline surrounding Liam, how Ally got him and rogue immortals after her that is very suspenseful. Overall the book was a terrific paranormal romance. It was a very believable story with a an awesome origin to the immortal race. I plan to read more of these books because I liked this one so much. Thanks to Edelweiss for providing me with an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Immortal Born is the newest installm This review was originally posted on Addicted To RomanceI received this book for free from Avon in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review. Immortal Born is the newest installment of the Argeneau series and its book #30 and I can hardly believe how big this series has grown over the years and even though I wouldn’t say that Immortal Born is my favorite of the series, I had such a fun time in reading this one here. It’s a bit different for sure, and I am please with this author in how she is able to develop this series in the way that she has and giving some new set ups that she hasn’t ever done before. Immortal Born is a story that starts off with a prologue (must read this, I know that not all reader like reading this but its pretty essential to the story) where we see the beginning of Allie and Liam. Allie Chambers made friends with a young woman “Stella” who had a infant son but then one evening Stella came to Allie to take her son and Stella was then killed in a house fire. But there were evil men after Allie, and her life has been turned upside down protecting Liam who she considers her son. But the rogues keep finding them and then she is rescued by a group of Immortals who have been hunting these rogues, but there is one Immortal that she is drawn to more than the others...Magnus. Magnus has lived for many centuries and never hoped for a life mate but was pleased to find Allie but now his life mate is in danger along with her son Liam. But there is a enemy out there gunning for Allie and wanting to take Liam to mold into something evil and Magnus will do whatever it takes to keep that from happening. With the aid of other Immortals, Allie is brought into the fold and their enemy is stronger than ever and Magnus wonders if he can protect those he loves from such evil…. Immortal Born is a catchy title but is really true in how it portrays the story that is proved in depths here. I did have a fun time with this story, and Lynsay Sands truly knows how to work a story in all the best ways. This was a bit different in that we have a mortal heroine who is taking care of a immortal child and only knows a little bit of Immortals, and has no idea what is ahead of her. There was such edgy thrills that delivers this book with such a punch and you really are on the edge from beginning to end. The romance between these two is what I truly struggled with, it felt almost forced and I just didn’t feel the chemistry between these two here. I would have liked too for sure, but it just wasn’t there in the way that I was hoping for. It almost felt like an arranged marriage feel to the story and you don’t really feel much emotion until the very end so it was lackluster in the ways that I really look forward to in a romance. A solid story overall but a bit disappointing in other areas. Overall I found Immortal Born to be a story filled with thrills, adventure, spicy sexiness and the writing as enthralling as ever

    2.5 stars Let's be real. This read more like a book about Allie and Stella then Allie and Magnus. *shakes heads* No. Just no. I mean I'm all for a solid backstory but I need it to stay in the back! It completely overshadowed the actual plot. And don't even get me started on the "romance" Ugh.

    I was excited while reading this book to see that it revisits Port Henry and the characters from my very favorite book The Accidental Vampire. The book synopsis gives you all of the important information, but what it fails to let you know is just how exciting this book really was, how convoluted the bad guys became and how sexy this read was going to be in thought and in the deed! I also loved the fact that there was no cliff hanger the story was complete (view spoiler)I was excited while reading this book to see that it revisits Port Henry and the characters from my very favorite book The Accidental Vampire.

I also loved the fact that there was no cliff hanger the story was complete (view spoiler)[right to the issue of the bad guy, Abaddon (hide spoiler)] . The only thing I am very unhappy with is that these newer books lack the humor and lightness of many of Ms. Sands's older books in this series. I am also unhappy to realize that I am missing a lot of the books in this series so I am going to have to do a lot of buying of backlisted books! Poor me, right?! *ARC supplied by the publisher.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. Well, as usual, I give this one five stars because I’m a fan. Bear that in mind. I will always give five stars to these books. Maybe I do a disservice to Lynsay by doing that but I’m sure she can handle it. I always get five stars worth of enjoyment out of these books. It’s a little like indulging in your favorite comfort food or going to your grandparent's house. That’s how these stories feel to me. I think you really need to have read the earlier books to properly appreciate this one.

Magnus never thought he would find his mate breaking into the blood bank but it does give him the knowledge that she is already in the know of vampires. It doesn't take Magnus long to claim what he feels is his but of course nothing goes easy. I am such a fan of Ms. Sands writing! I have loved everything I have read of hers.

    I have been provided with a review copy of Immortal Born through Edelweiss for an impartial review. This is the thirtieth book in the Argeneau series and I didn’t think after thirty books in one series that you could come up with something new to say or a completely new storyline to take place. Well I was proven wrong this was just such a great book and I was just pleasantly surprised with this new story. I really enjoyed getting to meet these new characters and get to go along on their journey. I have been provided with a review copy of Immortal Born through Edelweiss for an impartial review.

    **2.5 Stars** Where was the usual Sans character chemistry?? I really enjoyed Allie and Mangus as individuals, but the bad guy and his lifemate had more chemistry than the main couple, and that’s just sad. The story was entertaining, if anticlimactic. I was really looking forward to this one and it, unfortunately, fell flat in the romance department. It was fun seeing the whole crew back together, but it took more page time from Allie and Mangus, and TBH, they needed all the page time **2.5 Stars** Where was the usual Sans character chemistry??

Now, was this one of my favorites? Unfortunately, no. After following the series for so long and loving all the Argeneau’s, there were errors that really stood out. Also, it felt like there was a lot of filler in this story just to get it from point A to point B. I was thrilled with the story line and with the characters but, after so many books, you would think that there would be a way to check to make sure everything was correct. Allie was fearless throughout the story. She came to terms, immediately, with her fate because she would do whatever she had to do to protect Liam. She didn’t expect that she would fall in love through it all. Magnus was skeptical that Allie was his life-mate but made the trip to America to find out. As soon as he saw her, he knew. Now, he has to protect her and get her to understand that there is a difference between Vampires and Immortals. She got it quicker that he thought she would and she accepted it better than some others. Now, he had to explain life-mates and exactly what it would mean to them. But, there isn’t much time for that. He’s in love and she’s gone. Now, it’s time to get her back and show her exactly what she’s in for, for eternity. I enjoyed the story as long as I overlooked the errors and I had no choice but to skim over some parts of the book that seemed repetitive. But, Lynsay Sands knows how to weave a story … she knows when to bring in the humor, how to bring the drama to it’s height and then bring us a fun and beautiful happily-ever-after. Allies’ and Magnus’ story was fresh, new and special. Review copy provided for a voluntary review.

Babies are hard enough, but he's an immortal baby and as he begins to need more blood than Allie can provide him herself, she gets desperate and tries to rob the blood bank where she works. She wakes up surrounded by police and two detectives she recognizes as immortals and instantly fears, though one of them, Magnus, she finds instantly and strangely compelling. Magnus is thrilled to finally have a potential life mate. He never expected an attempted felon, but it soon becomes apparent that Allie has more dangerous ties to the immortal world than even she knew. Now Magnus must keep her safe from the rogue immortals pursuing her and her son as well as convince her to take a chance on loving and trusting another person and accepting the passion she'll only find with him. This book was a light and fun read in parts and equally suspenseful in others. I had a hard time keeping all the characters straight at times, but I loved all the family and friends coming together and the homey family vibe this book had because of it. That said, the homeyness did take away from the steaminess of it and made Magnus and Allie's relationship take a bit of a backseat at times. This was far from my usual romance jam, but I continue to be charmed by this series and want more of it. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    I love this series. When I read the synopsis I was very excited. I knew that this book was going to be great. What I was not expecting was the time shift. There are a couple of things that happened within this book that surprised me. There are a lot of people from Port Henry that I have forgot. I think this book should have been maybe set released during the Port Henry miniseries. I thought this book was going to be more about the random vampire we were introduced in The Trouble With Vampires. With that I love this series. When I read the synopsis I was very excited.

I thought this book was going to be more about the random vampire we were introduced in The Trouble With Vampires. With that book it still had that evil doctor still looming in the background. This book just doesn't seem to fit within this timeline. It's a good book but just off in the timeline. I did enjoy seeing all of the old people from Port Henry even if I did forget a lot of them. When I remembered the book that they were in I was 100% committed. I loved the relationship between Magnus and Allie. They fact they did not fall insta in love was a plus. I liked how Magnus allowed Allie to want to be with him and not force her into a marriage. I also enjoyed all of the kids that were introduced. Another good things about this books is that a villian from way back is no longer in the background. I guess we will see if the Argeneau clan and co can stop the doctor.

    Sometimes the couple set up gets a bit old in a series this long, but with this book there is a fresh take, something I appreciated. Allie was interesting, knowing just enough about this world to be in danger and dangerous at the same time.

By going slow both of them were able to know that they wanted to be with the other, helping build a strong foundation for their family. I loved the bit at the end, one where Port Henry seems to be going through a population explosion.

So while this recent series of stories have been entertaining they will never rise to the 5 Star level of those original stories that had so much fun and laughter while still maintaining some intrigue. Bottom line: A solid 4 Star novel that was enjoyable even though it was a bit predictable in a couple of places but had some new twists also that I enjoyed so I give it 4 Stars but I love the series, for those less biased than I it might slip down to 3.5 Stars. It was still an enjoyable reading experience and I still love this family

    Revoltingly stupid and no it can't be read as a stand alone unless you don't mind loosing all the threads, hints and backstory. It's boring, absurd and really really stupid. Characters made no sense and were given personal stories that were then ignored. There were thousands of people about whom you couldn't care less and were mostly noise.

    Love this addition to the Argeneau family!! Allie is amazing, with her willingness to step up and be mom to Liam and her mama bear is on point. Marcus, an amazing hero, he is so excited to have a life mate but he is willingly to wait for Allie to accept a whole new world. Their story is exciting and full of the whole family of Argeneau's, yes it can be read as a stand alone but it is fun to see characters from pervious books!!

    This is probably in my opinion the best book in the series. It had so much more going on than the others. But was really good. Leaves room for a spin-off too if she decided to go that route. Can't wait till the next book and it hasn't been that long since it came out.

    I once re-heated up a potato in the microwave. It was delicious and I devoured it. THAT potato & I had more of a story and passion than %80 of Lyndsay Sands Immortal Born! Seriously, the book was SO extensively full of boring, minor details that it ruined the bigger picture that would’ve been possible.

I did like the grit of Allie and initially was drawn to purchase this book because of her story with Liam. However Sands ruined whatever could’ve been by the tedious, constant onslaught of details about things that didn’t really matter to the plot....Additionally there were SO many extra characters being constantly introduced that it made my head spin! You never really know who tf she is talking about unless you really concentrate on all the sub-stories and even then I’m like wait, who is she talking about or introducing now?! uggh. Magnus was totally under represented as a character. I wanted to like him but I just didn’t have enough information about him. He was kinda like this big, hulking guy in the background willing to be a lifemate....ummm, OK I need MORE of a story about him and less about all the damn women in the town or the details about apple cider, bed and breakfasts and who is tobogganing. It was like these “immortals” were in upstate Vermont with Bing Crosby and Danny-Fkin’-Kaye having a hot cocoa and building snowmen instead of getting on with the damn story! DON’T even get me started on their first sexual encounter....OMFG wHo talks about their daddy issues and horrible life while trying to keep a dude “excited.” The entire talking during the trying-but-not-trying to have sex dealio was #1 NOT sensual AT ALL and #2 even I lost my girl-erection reading it. Bottom line: HUGE disappointment. Save yourself money folks.

Allie is a web designer that gave up her life to raise the child of a friend who died. The catch is, the friend was a vampire and her child is also a vampire (at least that's what Allie thinks they are) and Allie is having to feed her adopted son with her own blood and it's getting to the point that she can't go on. In desperation, she gets a job and a blood bank to steal some blood. But then she passes out from her weakness in the middle of the job. Magnus is an Immortal, a type of vampire originating in Atlantis that's made by the use of nanobots. He works as an enforcer, a warrior that takes out the rogues of their kind that prey on humans. Magnus is a good guy and has been waiting to find his life-mate for a very long time. Magnus and Allie's beginning is a bit difficult because of a couple reasons. First, the "vampires" (aka rogues) that her friend escaped from are still after Allie and her son and she thinks anyone with glowing eyes are bad. Second, Allie's background makes her reluctant to get into a relationship (I didn't totally buy that part but ok). Because of these issues, Allie and Magnus' start is more planned and less spontaneous than normal. But as with all the books in this series, the nanobots are right and Allie and Magnus are made for each other so by the end, they're totally gone for each other and planning out their HEA together. Overall, this was a very enjoyable story. I liked Allie, even if I wasn't completely sold on her reasoning at times. Magnus was a good guy and good hero and I liked him. Overall, this was a very good story with likable character and it was engaging so I'd recommend it. :) * note - I listened to the audio version of this story and the narrator did a very good job.

    Hmmm... well, other than the apparent ditching of the family tree (it's not on her website anymore and here we have an error). I mean; last I read, Etienne was Victor's nephew and here it's stated that they're brothers. And oh, DJ spoke perfectly normal English when we met him so why would he need to learn to use contractions? He's just a bit over a century; not a millennium.

And oh, DJ spoke perfectly normal English when we met him so why would he need to learn to use contractions? He's just a bit over a century; not a millennium. And the whole hymen discussion happened a while back, and it was said that no; it wouldn't grow back. Now they're saying that if the newly opened door isn't held open for half an hour or so, it'll grow back?! Trivial stuff I know, but details tend to bug me a lot. So our H, who I don't recall meeting in Scotty's book - did I miss something? Is flying into Canada because Marguerite has found him a lifemate...or something. Only, he's gotta rescue her since she's in the ER. Now, I must ponder why Marguerite left the girl to flounder 'til she could import her a mate instead of getting more immediate help. But we're supposed to run with it so... the H goes to rescue her from the hospital along with someone else we're supposed to know but I have no idea who this person is. (note that I've read all of the previous books as soon as they came out once she settled with Avon publishing). So...they go. Only, the h knows what an immortal is so runs. Not far mind you. She goes home to fetch her bags and the kid, only to run into rogues. Much drama later (this one was v. light on the humor - good since so many of the later books drift into stewpid, but I started this series because it was funny), the h is turned, kidnapped, rescued - sort of, and we have a HEA. Bonus - a loose end from Basha's old life is taken care of. I mean; if you were just reading this one, having never read any of the others, it's a pretty decent read. I'd almost say you'd be lost though but maybe not as there doesn't seem to be that much connection to the rest.

Feeding and caring for your dead friend’s vampire baby isn’t easy. I voluntarily reviewed an advance reader’s copy of this book. No remuneration was exchanged and all opinions presented herein are my own except as noted. Wow! Thirty books in one series! That is an accomplishment. Well, I have always said that Lynsay has the best rationale for how vampires work. But, she has fallen into running the same formula: Immortal meets Life Mate, with few exceptions, and in no particular order, the immortal has to turn the life mate, convince them they are the life mate and that is a desirable thing, and save or be saved by the life mate. So, the challenge, in each book, is to make the format interesting, credible as a match, and hot. She succeeds to variable degrees. In this one, I was attracted to neither the immortal nor the life mate. There are so-o-o many characters in the series that I do not recall Magnus. I didn’t like how easily the entire group of Argeneau and rogue hunting factions are tricked. But I did like the extensive inclusion of the original, big, bad Lucian Argeneau. And, I thought the plot within the formula bounds was different and inventive; although I was troubled that the villain was gay and part of his evil was based in converting his minions and raising Allie’s stepson in his own image. He’s not dumb though and manages to trick and elude the brilliant Argeneaus and the rogue hunters at nearly every turn. So, in the end, I was not bored, and knew what to expect, although I found parts of the character development troubling.

For the 4 years since then, she has been moving place to place, one step ahead of the nest of vampires Liam’s mother had escaped from. The only thing Allie knows about vampires is that they survive on blood, so she has been feeding the child from her own veins for four years. Finally, desperate - and anemic - she takes a job at a blood bank. As the story opens, Magnus has come from England because Marguerite Notte has found a possible life-mate for him (Allison) only to find that she has been arrested for attempting to burgle her place of employment. The plot is focused on convincing Alison that vampires are called immortals, and most of them are good, as well as keeping Allison and little Liam safe. There is a rather extended visit with characters from previous entries in the series when they hide in the town Of Port Henry where many of the couples had relocated. But you do not need to read those to enjoy this one. I “consumed” this book via audiobook and enjoyed the experience. I have purchased all the other books in the series on audio, but returned many of them due to the poor quality of the narration. This production, however, is performed by Amanda Ronconi. I am familiar with her work with several Audible productions of Molly Harper’s series, most of which I enjoy immensely. She does not do a good British accent, and I am pleased to say that she did not even attempt it with Magnus (he wasn’t originally from Britain, and had in fact lived many different places). The performance was definitely 4.5 stars, the story is also 4.5, and in Kym math, that’s a solid 5.

What Allie doesn't know is if she can trust these new Immortals, who promise her things she hasn't had for a long time. Yet, she wants to trust them, wants to believe that all this happiness that Liam has is the right fit. Trusting doesn't come easy for Allie. It never has. Magnus makes her feel safe. Could they build a life here with him? Magnus is stunned by Allie's story. Stunned by her beauty and her logic and her friendship to Stella - a rogue immortal. He couldn't have dreamed of a better life mate. Only he is unsure how to tell her that is what she is to him. Would she accept him? Would she trust him with her life and Liam's life? I love this series. I love all the characters and how they are all so different. No one is the same, yet they are work together like a normal family. Magnus' back story is amazing, I felt myself pulled in and reliving it when he told it to Allie. The fact that he is so old, doesn't deter from the fact that he is 100% a gentleman and I have no doubt he'd be able to keep Allie and Liam safe.

I loved the interaction between Allie and Magnus. I liked how she didn't just immediately fall at his feet and he had to work for it a little. I also like the honestly between them as far as Liam and her ultimate motives were concerned. The only complaint is that there was no explanation of how Marguerite even knew Allie and that she might be Magnus' lifemate.

    Enjoyed this story. I love the song, that Leigh changed the ringtones for on Lucian's phone and was laughing so hard, had to put my face in my pillow. The way Allie is giving Lucian all that he can handle. Allie is so much like Leigh, that reminds Lucian the real reason that he loves his wife so much, because she is a very strong alpha woman. Strong alpha men and women need just as strong alpha men and women as mates. Lynsay makes them seem so real. Love reading her stories about them. Magnus ha Enjoyed this story.

    Magnus and Allie I’m happy to see Magnus finally got a Lifemate in Allie as I have been hoping he would find one for years. Can you imagine trying to raise a Immortal child with no knowledge of how to do so? The ups and downs of trying to find nourishment for the child? Of course not but that didn’t stop Allie from keeping her promise to her best friend and raising her child to be as normal as possible. Thank goodness Magnus was able to step in and help her out and keep her safe too.

Does it work? Well read the book and find out. I recommend this book and series.

    Too much catch up I normally love Argeneau novels but this one wasn’t my favorite. It was okay but there was about 70% educating the reader about all things immortal beings and maybe 30% relationship/action. And I think I’m being generous with the 30%. I didn’t really get any real “feels” from the main couple either. I will still check out the next one in the series because maybe this was just a fluke.

    It was a cute read I wish they would stop falling in love so fast but alas it’s the typical Sans novel. They are all very good. But, I would love a leading female to be less omg I love you after 30 seconds
