Lynsay Sands – Argeneau 1 – A Quick Bite
That hot guy tied to Lissianna Argeneau's bed? He's not dessert—he's the main course!
Lissianna has been spending her centuries pining for Mr. Right, not just a quick snack, and this sexy guy she finds in her bed looks like he might be a candidate. But there's another, more pressing issue: her tendency to faint at the sight of blood . . . an especially annoying quirk for a vampire. Of course it doesn't hurt that this man has a delicious-looking neck. What kind of cold-blooded vampire woman could resist a bite of that?
Dr. Gregory Hewitt recovers from the shock of waking up in a stranger's bedroom pretty quickly—once he sees a gorgeous woman about to treat him to a wild night of passion. But is it possible for the good doctor to find true love with a vampire vixen, or will he be just a good meal? That's a question Dr. Greg might be willing to sink his teeth into . . . if he can just get Lissianna to bite.
Lynsay Sands – Argeneau 2 – Love Bites
True love: good from the first bite...
Etienne Argeneau can turn one human into a vampire in his lifetime - an honour his kind usually reserved for their life mates, to let their love life forever.
But it's all a bit more complicated than that. Rachel Garrett, a beautiful coroner, has just saved his life and now she's about to lose hers. Etienne has a choice: he can save her life in turn and thus doom himself to an eternity alone, unable to create his own life mate. Or he can watch his saviour die and life in the name of a love he has yet to meet.
Her life and his love weigh in the balance and whatever Etienne does he may live to regret for eternity...
The first book in the Argeneau series introduces the Argeneau family and features a chaotic romance you can really sink your teeth into.
Lynsay Sands – Argeneau 3 – Single White Vampire
Roundhouse Publishing editor Kate C Leever's first letter to her new author was meant to impress upon him the growing demand for vampire romances. And even though he'd expressed little-to-no desire for any publicity, book tours, or similar, it was clear this was an author just waiting to be broken out - despite himself, if necessary.
When she suggested attending a romance convention his response - unusually quick to arrive - was succinct: 'No.'
But Kate was adamant: Mr Lucern Argeneau was going to attend a romance convention and meet his fans. By hook or by crook, despite his reclusive nature and odd sleep patterns, the surly yet handsome author would attend. And she was sure that, once there, he would reveal himself to be a true charmer.
Of course, that was before she realised that his 'romances' were more like biographies and it's literally her neck on the line...
Lynsay Sands – Argeneau 4 – Tall, Dark & Hungry
When Terri flew from England to New York to help plan her cousin Kate's wedding, she didn't know what she expected - but it certainly wasn't the Argeneaus.
Her new in-laws may seem a little strange, with the sometimes-chipper sometimes-brooding writer Lucern - Kate's fiancee - and Vincent, the wacky stage actor (she couldn't imagine Broadway casting a hungrier looking all singing, all dancing Dracula), but having just discovered how expensive New York hotels can be, suddenly their offer of accomodation looks much more attractive.
And then there's Bastien. Even taller, darker and hungrier looking than the other two, just looking into his eyes is enough to make Terri admit she's falling for him. Surely she can put up with the Argeneau's odd habits for a few days - to stay in their luxurious penthouse apartment, with the lovely Bastien - if it lets her avoid New York's blood-sucking hotel prices!
Lynsay Sands – Argeneau 5 – A Bite to Remember
If you're going to fall in love with a vampire, make sure it's a bite to remember...
Rule 1: Never get involved with someone who won't be there for you when the sun comes up. Rule 2: Never kiss a vampire...it can be a pain in the neck.
Once bitten, twice shy - and sexy PI Jackie Morrisey so wasn't going there again with a vampire. Vincent Argeneau might be the hottest guy she'd ever met, living or dead, but she'd been hired to stop a killer from turning him into dust, not to jump into bed with him.
So what if Vincent's had four hundred years to perfect his kissing skills and looks incredibly tempting when he runs around the house shirtless. He's also charming, protective...and did we mention he can kiss? Jackie needs to be on her guard, or else she'll have to come up with a new rule: if you're going to fall in love with a vampire, make sure it's a bite to remember.

She knows there's more to being undead than what she saw in Dracula, but she can't very well ask her mortal friends about proper biting etiquette.
