Samantha Willan is a workaholic lawyer. She’s grateful for some rest and relaxation in cottage country, and after a recent breakup she wants to stay as far away from romance as possible. Then she meets her irresistible new neighbor. There’s something strange and mysterious about his eyes. Is it just her imagination, or are they locked on her neck?
Garrett Mortimer is a rogue hunter. His last assignment united Lucian Argeneau with his lifemate, and Mortimer is hoping this one will be less . . . adventurous. He’s here to track down a reported rogue, but fun in the sun is every bloodsucker’s nightmare. Worse, he can’t seem to get his mind off Samantha, especially when he spies her skinny-dipping in the lake. After eight hundred years as a bachelor, is he ready to turn a volatile attraction into a lasting love affair?
As ever I just love the Argeneau Series, with it’s humor, sexy men, quit witted women and some kind of disaster in each book, it makes each story a great read. Along with the ties to the previous characters. Each book has it’s own story, that is basically the same ending for the most part, but each couple has their own story. Their own reasons for why they are meant to be. I always catch myself smiling or busting up out loud while I read one of these books, it never fails to amuse me.
This one Mortimer and Sam (I love the name by the way lol), meet at their cottages in Magnetawan also known as “cottage country” Mortimer, and his friends are supposed to be tracking down a Rogue Vampire, but end up meeting the sisters Sam, Jo, and Alex because Mortimer couldn’t control Sam’s mind. He’s found his lifemate, he doesn’t believe this to be the case because at first he thinks of her as a drunk and clumsy because she’s always falling or hurting herself, but soon comes to find out it’s an ear infection. But then he gets to know Sam more and the more he gets to know her the more his interests peeks to her, she obviously gets interested in him but has reserves cause of a past break up. Well of course some tragedy happens, this time it was her bosses goddaughter goes missing, so she ends up staying at her parents cottage (mansion) in the guest cottages out back. During this time, Mortimer and Sam get to know each other quite well, especially when they try to get intimate and it ends up resulting in some kind of a hysterical folly.
By the time this tragedy is taken care, things are quite sizzling between Mortimer and Sam, but Mortimer has yet to tell Sam about what he is and that she is his lifemate. By the time he does reveal it, it turns out bad at first, but then she comes to terms on what’s she’s been told. She is then left with choice of choosing Mortimer and leaving her sisters in like 10 years, or choosing her sisters and getting her memory of Mortimer erased completely. In the end the find the rogue, not going to tell you what happens to the rogue though *smiles*. And Mortimer and Sam are left with the choice, who does she choose? Well let’s just say… you will be seeing more of Mortimer and Sam in future books. *smiles*
