One hundred and twenty-five years is a long time to nurse a crush. That’s how long it’s been since Beth Argenis first met Cullen “Scotty” MacDonald and he instantly became the star of her most X-rated dreams. Back then, he was rescuing her from a Rogue Immortal. Now Beth’s a Rogue Hunter—a damn good one. She doesn’t need saving anymore, despite what Scotty thinks. What she does need is the fierce, wild desire that finally erupts between them.
Scotty has hesitated to claim Beth as his own. But one explosive kiss confirms what he’s long suspected: She’s his life mate. But Beth is tough, fearless, beautiful…and in immortal danger. Unless he wants to lose her forever, he’ll have to rethink everything he once believed about love and destiny as well as confront an enemy who’s terrifyingly close.
I’ve been reading this series for some time now and have absolutely no plans to abandon it anytime soon. I’m in it for the long haul regardless of if I love the current release or not. Fortunately, the latest book is one that I LOVE!
The 26th installment of the Argeneau series brings us back to Canada where the rogue hunters are little scarce thanks to the drama going on with the doctor. They are relying on hunters on loan from Europe and we end up with Beth and Scotty’s story. Some parts of this story felt familiar and we probably met these two before for another couple’s coming together. Please note Ms. Kenyon, this book is a perfect example of how you can revisit a plot from an earlier book without copying scenes word-for-word… Moving on.
Beth and Scotty’s book is one of the more somber and serious Argeneau books focusing more on drama than laughs. Don’t worry they are in there too. But both leads had a pretty tough human life and we deal with topics in this book that don’t lend well to slapstick. I loved how Ms. Sands tackled some heavy topics and didn’t sanitize what was most likely reality for many young poor women from Beth’s human era.
I enjoyed how it wasn’t an easy coming together for these two. They had to work at finding their h.e.a. Both needed to overcome insecurities and prejudices and grow as individuals before they could work as a couple. Scotty was fun but came with his own set of baggage and needed to own up to it. Beth was a kick-ass heart of gold heroine and I simply loved her. She was a great pick for the pompous Scotty. In the end, as with all of Ms. Sands’ stories, they found their H.E.A. and the mystery was solved. There were some fresh faces in this book and I look forward to seeing who they might get paired up with in future novels.
If you love this series then I think you will love this one too. If you feel that it is getting a little stale then I implore you to hold on for this book as it had a fresh feeling to me. Over all, it simply was a great read and I enjoyed every minute of it.
