There is one thing I’ve come to expect when picking up one of the Argeneau books, that is a cute story with a little bit of mystery and an entertaining light read. This was exactly that. Somewhere in the middle of this series I felt as if it had lost some of its charm but I really liked the last book and now this one was also another great one! Right back on track!Paul Jones is a human who works for Argeneau Enterprises. He is privileged to the information of what they are due to the nature of his job in research. But he flies under the radar. That is until his daughter is sick and with no hope of recovery. He makes the risky decision of kidnapping an Argeneau and make her change his daughter.
When choosing, of course he chooses the one woman who had appealed to him for years. He used to watch her from afar, he knew so much about her. Subconsciously he chose her because of his attraction.
Jeanne Louise Argeneau has a lot on her plate. Finding her life mate, him being human, being kidnapped by him, having to turn his daughter, running away from her family who wants to free her from the evil kidnapper.
I always enjoy the stories in this series where the lifemates that are human often times are older, because of course after the change they go back to their mid twenties. The connection between Jean Louise and Paul was slow and steady, and every so often we got glimpses of the attraction that had been there before on Paul’s side.
Of course there’s a twist closer to the end and I was about to get mad when I didn’t see a solution (or volunteer) but things worked out perfectly, even better than I was hoping for.
Paul’s daughter is also very sweet and a great addition to their dynamics. Not a lot of the Argeneau family members in this one, only towards the end.
I’m looking forward to see what’s next in this series!
