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?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Numerous book This is a really good and funny book
Date published: 2014-03-27
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lackin In All Things Rogues!!! One thing you can always expect from Lynsay Sands is a funny and easy read, with just the right amount of romance. This is the first book of the Rogue Hunter series, I expected it to be a lot darker and intense but it has the same tone as the Argeneau series, not like that is a bad thing, I wanted more Rogue vampires and I got nada. Sam and her sisters are on vacation at the family cottage for two weeks, it’s a great way to catch up and just hang out. Sam has a bit of an ear infection so her balance is off, and she basically looks like a clumsy fool. The cottage beside her as been vacant for a time, and it seems the owner and friends have stopped by for a visit, when a storm leads them to get up close and personal, it brings honour thy neighbour to a whole new meaning. I’m talking sexy time meaning. Garret Mortimer is a Rogue hunter, he works for a council of vampires who controls their race from hurting and killing humans. When a suspected rogue leads him to cottage country Ontario, yeh I said it, bloody Canada y’all. When he lays eyes on the 3 sisters next door, one thing he knows Sam is definitely not his type, her body is all long muscle and he likes a little meat on bones. Well fate has other plans, seems Sam is his life mate and she is the last thing he needs. There is no way this clumsy fool was meant to be his. This one was definitely lacking in the action department, but what it lacked in suspense it made up for in funny. I had a few laugh out loud moments with this one, you will love the humour and the characters. Sam, she isn’t really epic but she is likable. With Garret I am thinking of all the ways he could bite me, and it’s a plenty. Plus we had a fun side character Bricker, dude I hope he gets his own book, he is hilarious. Overall a light fluff read, I am hoping for a little more darkness in the other books. I want blood, I want dead people. The ending was kinda blah, and seemed rush I have no sense of closure when it comes to the lead couple. A solid 3.5! P.S If you have no idea what I am talking about, the book is about vampires, and not the hard to kill kind, but its sweet. 2010-041

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Hmm, Pet Name 'Sweet P'!!! This is the first offering from Sands in the Rogue Hunter series; you would have been introduced to Mortimer in ‘Bite Me If You Can’. Lucian & Leigh’s story was so compelling that I was very much looking forward to the tale as to how Mortimer finds his life mate Samantha in this edition. The story seemed a little erratic to me at times but in traditional Sands fashion there are some very quirky / humorous moments. It was comical to see Mortimer initially discount Sam as too skinny & somewhat Olive Oyl looking when he preferred more of the Jessica Rabbit aesthetic. Then there were several failed attempts at intimacy, no thanks to mother nature. I will look for these characters to re-emerge in ‘The Renegade Hunter’ as their story seems incomplete at the end of this novel.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Page turner! Read this book first, then read The Immortal Hunter as it picks up where this books leaves off. This book was so good I read it in a day! I just couldn't put it down. The two main characters just couldn't have their moment and keeps you reading to find out how it all turns out.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Average....just plain average! Well this was my jump into paranormal romance and I must say I was a tad disappointed. There were too many characters, so I didn't feel attached to any of them and I all I could keep thinking was it feels like Twilight minus the passion- Garrett (the Vamp) can't read Sam (the human's) mind....and she's clumsy. The mystery was interesting for a bit and then fizzled. I had heard such great things about Lyndsay Sands I was excited to read this......I guess I will try one of her other ones.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Deliciously funny I devoured this book. Not entirely my ideal vampire novel, let me tell you. Nanos and...all that, but it was hilarious. I found myself laughing out loud more then I usually do with a book. The novel was delightful, romantic and fun. Nothing to serious, so if you’re looking for something to knock you out of your chair this book isn't for you. It was a light, fluffy read. But great! Definitely a keeper.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Good Book I like this book, not as much as the previous Argeneau series novels, but it was still good. The story line was good and I didn’t mind the main characters, but I was expecting a different ending and it did get a bit slow in the middle. However it isn’t necessarily a bad thing that the ending was unexpected, ‘cause if I always read the expected than that would be boring. I love Lynsay Sands writing, her books are always funny, mysterious and exciting, and I am most defiantly excited for the next novel to come.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A bit of a disappointment I could not wait for this book to come out. I love this series. But when I got to the last page I felt let down. Not only was the book a let down, but now we have to wait forever until the next Argeneau story. I think the next story should be Christian Notte's (Margarette's son with Julius). I love Lynsay Sands and hope we don't have to wait too long for the next book.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not Bad I always love books by Lynsay Sands and I did enjoy this book as well but it was a bit disappointing nothing really happened, Samantha didn't turn, there is still the question of what will happen to her sisters, the rogue was not a real danger, (confusing since it seemed like he killed the girl in the prologue...) and the missing teen was just a brat who went partying it was cute and fun but there was no real intensity or climax to it really it was just OK in the end, I hope the next book gives us at least a little detail about what happens to the two (and I thought certain non-vamps could be trusted to know the truth? like Inez was to be told when she got promoted but she was mortal) why can't her sister's be told if, when read, they prove that they will not tell???
