Book Review: Single White Vampire An Argeneau Vampire Novel by Lynsay Sands



Paperback - B Format

April 2010

384 pages


The second novel in the hot new Argeneau vampire series.

Roundhouse Publishing editor Kate C Leever's first letter to her new author was meant to impress upon him the growing demand for vampire romances. And even though he'd expressed little-to-no desire for any publicity, book tours, or similar, it was clear this was an author just waiting to be broken out - despite himself, if necessary. When she suggested attending a romance convention his response - unusually quick to arrive - was succinct: 'No. ‘But Kate was adamant: Mr Lucern Argeneau was going to attend a romance convention and meet his fans. By hook or by crook, despite his reclusive nature and odd sleep patterns, the surly yet handsome author would attend. And she was sure that, once there, he would reveal himself to be a true charmer. Of course, that was before she realized that his 'romances' were more like biographies and it's literally her neck on the line...

Single White Vampire is the third in the Argeneau series and follows Sands’ format of romance with a touch of humour that will keep her readers happy. You can read this novel as a standalone book without too much trouble, but to really enjoy the full flavour of the characters, I’d recommend reading the first two books in the series before you sink your teeth into this one, sorry about the corny pun.

The book tells the story of Lucern “Luc” Argeneau. Luc is a famous author who writes romance novels about vampires, this in itself is quite funny when you think about it. Does Luc hate the multitude of paranormal romance written by the un-undead? Especially when Luc is actually writing true stories about his family and not some teen fantasy. Luc’s life changes when his new editor Kate C. Leever arrives on his doorstep without warning, determined to drag him to a book signing to drum up publicity.

This novel is written to the formula that we’ve all come to know and love by Sands and won’t disappoint constant readers.
