Stephano Jacob 'Jake' Colson Notte never wished to be a vampire. When asked by his mother and stepfather on his eighteenth birthday whether he'd like to become an immortal, he'd firmly refused. After having suffered a fatal wound one night while doing his job years later his boss, Vincent Argeneau, an immortal, had turned him. He hadn't known of Jake's wishes and had converted him in order to save his life. Jake hadn't taken it so well and had run off to Ottawa to deal with everything on his own. Now Marguerite has come to town to ask him for a favor. A friend's daughter, Nicole Phillips, is going through a messy divorce and it appears her soon to be ex-husband is trying to squeeze every last dime out of her. Several questionable incidents suggest he might be willing to go so far as to kill her for it. Marguerite wants Jake to be Nicole's body guard, but the soon to be divorced young woman is in denial and so Jake will have to pretend to be her cook/housekeeper. When he realizes he can't read her thoughts and that she is most probably his life mate, he'll not only try to protect her, but steal her heart her heart as well.


Ms. Sands Argeneau books are always fun and entertaining. This is the 19th book of the series. If you haven't read any of the previous books in the series, this one gives you a pretty good idea of how the Argeneaus and Nottes became immortals so you won't feel lost.You could easily pick of this book and immediately sink your teeth into it.

Jake Colson, as he's decided to be called, is still struggling with his transformation. He has separated himself from his family and isolated himself from everyone he knew. Now he finds his life mate and she is on the tail end of a divorce and is most likely not ready to jump into a committed relationship. It seems he's doomed with bad luck, or is he? From what he's heard about life mates vampires can go for centuries and never find theirs. The question is will Nicole be able to handle what he is when he himself cannot? When he himself is still trying to come to terms with it?

Nicole Phillips is a smart and talented artist who married the wrong man, but is not convinced he or anyone else is trying to kill her. While she admits that her soon to be ex is a smuck, she's convinced he's not the type to commit murder. Is she in denial or could all that has happened just be a series of mean spirited pranks her husband pulled to annoy her? As more and more mishaps occur, it seems very likely she's a target of someone. One thing is for sure, after all the drama that's been stirred up by the divorce, she's not in the mindset to start a new relationship, but her new cook/housekeeper, however, does give her cause to wonder.

Overall, I gave this one a 3 1/2 out of 5 roses. I thought it was a nice lighthearted read that kept me in its thrall. One of my favorite parts was all the advice being doled out by Tomasso and Dante. It made me smile. When it comes to the Nottes and Argeneaus, you don't just inherit immortality, you inherit a huge family and I just love that about this series. On the Lisarenee rating Scale, this one get a STEAM rating--too hot for a fan, but you still have a handle on things. You should use extreme caution when reading a book with this rating in public. People may inquire as to why you looked flustered and flushed.
