IT WAS A CASE SHE COULD SINK HER TEETH INTO...After seven hundred years of life, Marguerite Argeneau finally has a career. Well, the start of one, anyway. She's training to be a private investigator, and her first assignment is to find an immortal's mother. It seemed simple enough, until Marguerite wakes up one evening to find herself at the wrong end of a sword. Now she realizes she's in way over her head.Julius Notte wants to protect Marguerite, and not because someone just tried to take her head off. She doesn't know it yet, but she's his lifemate and he's determined to woo her. It's been over five hundred years since he last courted a woman, but surely the techniques haven't changed. Now if only he can keep her alive—so to speak—so they can have that happily-ever-after.
Marguerite has come to help uncover a mystery, and learning to be a detective as Tiny’s partner (Tiny in previous book:A Bite To Remember). This mystery is to uncover the truth about Nicholas Nottes mother and why she left him as a infant. But as her first assignment goes under way, she is attacked by a man in black with a sword, who attempts in trying to behead her. But then her attacker disappears and Nicholas and his father Julias go out to protect her. Julias Notte has kept the truth about his mother as a means of protecting him. Marguerite fears Julias at first, especially when there are signs that they are lifemates, but because of her hellish nightmare of a 700 year marriage with her previous husband. However as she goes about trying to find clues about Nicholas’ mother, she starts to realize how much she is coming to care for Julias, but he is hiding something from her that could tear down the trust she has built…

Julias has lived a long time, for centuries and one of the oldest immortals. He has done everything to protect his son Nicholas, but has good reason for keeping certain things from him and there is a part of him that has always loved Marguerite…
The Heroine (Marguerite Argeneau)
Marguerite lived for over 700 years with her previous husband, whom controlled and manipulated her and was Hell on Earth for her. Now he is dead and she has moved on, trying to heal from that nightmare. But she decides to have a change in her life, and to finally have a career for the first time in her life. So she takes on as partner to a experienced yet mortal detective, and excited to be working on her first case, and uncover a puzzling mystery….yet never realizing that it would change her life forever.
This is the second time that I have read Vampire Interrupted, however that was a couple years ago when the book first came out, and Marguerite has always been one of my favorites to read throughout the series, and her book is exhilarating. A stimulating road with unstoppable action, delectable characters and a story that will take you down the road of danger, intrigue, blazing passion and a powerful love story, a story that will take your breath away when the unexpected happens, and a Delicious story that will have you feasting from the first page….A Five grade on this one!!!
My Favorite Quote:
“We are lifemates, Marguerite. There is no ‘appear’ about it,” he growled. The air in the room was suddenly electric. Her heart rate sped up, blood moving swiftly through her veins as her breathing became shallow…
