The Immortal Who Loved Me by Lynsay Sands
Series: Argeneau Vampires #21
Published by Avon Genres: Paranormal
Sherry Carne is working in her office of her kitchen products company when suddenly her door opens and a teenager comes in and literally turns Sherry’s world upside down and inside out. Before she knows it, Sherry is on the run with said teenager, learns that vampires are real, and that she is the life mate of one and will be meeting him immediately. Sherry isn’t sure if she fell asleep at her desk and this is a nightmare, or if she was slipped something or what, but when an extremely sexy man shows up to get her, Sherry might be willing to keep an open mind—Well, on most things anyway.
Basileios Argeneau can’t believe the phone call he received that not only has his life mate been found, but that she is now on the run from a man his entire family is hunting down. Not only that, but she seems to be having a hard time accepting everything going on as reality. Basil knows that until Sherry truly accepts all that happened, she won’t be able to accept herself as his life mate nor the option of his making her just like him and the love that will spring from this. However, after this many years of searching, Basil is not going to give up without giving his all to convince Sherry that everything is more than real, and that she is his forever love.
Sherry might be willing to accept that vampire exist and that they all are either from Atlantis or were sired by someone from there, but she is having a really hard time with the life mate thing and the passion that seems to come out of nowhere to swamp both her and Basil. Although having a really sexy man to cuddle and kiss is not all bad. As Basil and the Argeneaus try and figure out just who Sherry has gained her ability to shield from, because it has to be an immortal, the answers turn Sherry’s world even more inside out. So many things Sherry has always believed to be truths have turned out to be false. Basil is determined to be by Sherry’s side as the harsh realities come to light, and Sherry discovers just what her past really has been shaped by. Now it’s time to face the future and the love that has come from nowhere the minute Sherry and Basil came face-to-face. Can Sherry find a way to accept all that has been told to her, and that Basil really can be her forever lover?
A dangerous encounter turns into the passion to last for eons in The Immortal Who Loved Me. Basil and Sherry might have met under the worst of circumstances, however, neither are letting that stop them from discovering just what true mates really means. I thought that Sherry took everything she was told and saw pretty well considering, yet I knew that Basil had a long way to go before Sherry would accept her fate as his life mate. I really felt sorry for both Sherry and Basil as clues were followed and answers were located about Sherry’s past. It seemed like every time Basil tried to help Sherry understand something, a new road block would appear. It got to a point where I was wondering if they would even turn out to be friends, much less life mates. However, I just didn’t count in Sherry’s sense of humor, ability to adjust and accept the impossible when presented to her, and Basil’s determination to keep and save his life mate from harm both from things in her past and that currently around her. The Immortal Who Loved Me takes several wicked twists and turns as Basil and Sherry travel the path that bring them to the deep loving future that all of the Argeneaus have found with their life mates.
