Book Description

Take a road trip with the undead . . . in this latest in the argeneau series by New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands
For Basha Argeneau, anything is better than facing her estranged family. Even hiding out in sweltering southern California. But when a sexy immortal in black shows up determined to bring her back to the clan, she'll do anything to keep far, far away from the past she can't outrun.
Marcus Notte isn't here to play games—especially not with someone as crazy as the infamous blonde. Asked by Lucian Argeneau to bring her back for questioning, Marcus is determined to carry out Lucian's request—no matter how the seductive little mind-reading vamp feels about it.
Basha doesn't mind fighting fire with fire, especially with a hot immortal involved. But if he wants to take her away, he'll have to catch her first . . .
Out of all of the Lysay Sands Vampire books I have read, this was one of the darkest and least humorous for me. It was also one of the most confusing since it uses many characters from past books, so if you are not current (and I am not) then you may be doing a lot of head scratching.

As it says in the description, Basha is hiding out under the guise of a carnival fortuneteller named Divine.

Marcus Notte (Marco to Divine) is on the hunt for Basha per her Uncle Lucien’s edict and he finally finds her in a small town doing her ‘thing’.

Basha is considered a rogue vampire since she was never taught the ins and outs of it, for example not eating ‘off the hoof’, only using bagged blood, she doesn’t know about how the nano’s work and other things.

Divine and Marco, of course, find out that they are life-mates, much to Divines disple3asure since she does not want to drag Marco into her family affairs.

The characters didn’t seem to mesh for me, they were flat and lifeless (no pun intended!) the romance wasn’t there –of course angst played large part of the story, but their relationship seemed to be an afterthought by the author. The family trees left my head spinning.

This book was a little too serious for me and that took away a large part of my enjoyment. Ms Sands usually is able to suck me right into her books because I know that I can leave the ‘serious, real’ world while I immerse myself into her slightly skewed and kooky one. This time it just did not work.
