Guest Review: Born To Bite

Born to Bite (Book 13 of Argeneau Series) by Lynsay Sands

"Eshe d’Aureus is sent to Armand Argeneau under the auspice that she needs a safe place to hide from a rogue out for revenge, but Eshe is really on the job. She's been saddled with the task of finding out why Armand's wives keep dying, and what it has to do with his son Nicholas and the murder Nicholas is accused of committing 50 years ago. She's Nicholas's only hope of avoiding being executed for a murder he may or may not have committed. Eshe's agreed to take on the task, but that was before she realized she couldn't read Armand and he is the life mate she's been waiting for.

Armand Argeneau’s first sight of Eshe was her roaring up on a motorcycle that appeared to be aflame. That was inconspicuous?! She had the grace of a panther, the attitude of a pit bull and openly enjoyed thwarting Lucian’s orders whenever possible . . . all of which delighted him immensely . . . until he realized he couldn't read the woman and she might be a life mate. Having already lost a life mate and two wives to suspicious circumstances, Armand isn't willing to risk losing another. Unfortunately, sending her away was pretty difficult when he couldn't keep his thoughts, not to mention his hands, off her. It seems it's time to once again try to get to the bottom of the deaths of his first three wives. While Armand's tried before, he's also failed, but this time he could lose his son as well as his life mate." (
Description provided by

This books follows up where The Renegade Hunter leaves off with Nicholas waiting to learn his future. 
Eshe d'Aureus is sent by the Council to Nicholas' father, Armand's Farm under the guise of her needing protection from a viscious No-Fanger when she was actually there to investigate Armand and the mysterious deaths of his 3 Immortal wives. While all of the deaths were previously thought of as accidents, Eshe is there to prove Nicholas innocence by finding the true killer of his fathers wifes and the reason behind the deaths that landed Nicholas in the situation he is in. 

Eshe and Armand are swept up in a whirlwind romance and death is trailing them every step of the way. Bricker and Anders join them in this book to help along side the new lifemates while they investigate close family friends of Armand and his previous wifes. 

The book was well written and even though I figured out half way through the book who I thought the killer was there were plot twists that I didn't see coming. I didn't find myself emotionally involved with either Eshe or Armand. I was hoping for more but the focus was mainly on finding the killer and thus the spark and interest in these two particular characters fell short. 

This isn't a book I'd rave about though it was an ok read. I really enjoyed most of her series because of the connections devloped with the characters and the spark of personality she puts in them and this was a bit lackluster compared to the others. 

I'm still a fan, I'm still anxious to get into the latest release in this amazing series!
