Tender and funny, The Immortal Who Loved Me is yet another solid offering in the long running Argeneau series by Lynsay Sands. With the hunt still on for evil Leonius Livius and new life mates Sherry and Basil finding their way, this was certainly an entertaining read.
One would think that by book twenty-one in a paranormal romance series, things would become a bit stale. I didn’t find that to be the case here. I thought the writing was still just as fresh, having that nice balance of humor, passion, and suspense I’ve come to expect from the Argeneau’s. The action started off right away, with Leo bursting into Sherry’s business and her life, unfortunately. Having she and Basileios find out almost immediately that they were life mates was a great way to get to know who they really were as individuals. And to see how they would handle that information and how things would progress from there.
I got a big kick out of Sherry. She was just so…human. She babbled when she was nervous, she worried about her business and, most importantly, her employees when all hell broke loose. She was just what Basil needed to get him to open up and have some fun, not be the all-work-and-no-play lawyer he had become. Although, he actually had a nice sense of humor when he wanted to let it show. I liked that Basil was always looking out for Sherry’s best interest, even if it was to his disadvantage. Plus, the chemistry they had together was incredible. There was such awe and tenderness underneath the new life mate lust they felt. It was really heartwarming to read.
I think paranormal romance fans will enjoy this installment even if this is the first Argeneau novel they’ve read. Author Lynsay Sands did a great job as always giving us an exciting storyline while not scrimping on the connection between our hero and heroine.
