In the latest Argeneau novel from New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands, an immortal and her mortal pilot are on the run from hungry vampires...and discover they’re life mates along the way.
Jet Lassiter likes being a pilot for Argeneau Inc. Perks included travelling to exotic locations and meeting interesting people, even if they are the blood-sucking kind. He’s living the good life, until his plane goes down in the mountains and four of his passengers are gravely injured. They need blood to heal... and Jet is the only source.
Quinn Peters never wanted to be immortal. Once a renowned heart surgeon, she was turned against her will and now she has to drink blood to survive. Before she can ask how her “life” can get any worse, she’s in a plane crash. One of the few survivors, Quinn is desperate to get the mortal pilot to safety before her fellow immortals succumb to their blood lust and drain Jet dry.
But hungry vampires are the least of their worries—the crash wasn’t an accident, and someone is trying to kill Quinn. Will she and Jet find their happily ever after as life mates, or will her assassin find her first?
Mile High With A Vampire is the newest addition to the Argeneau series and it had the same tones of flair, humor, and action that we have come to expect from this series and this author. I actually had a fun time with this book and while it’s not the most impressionable of the recent books in the series, I found myself entertained and quite drawn into the series and this unique pairing. I will say that the pair that we come to know in this book is not your typical couple, and quite frankly at first, I had no clue how Lynsay Sands would make them work but somehow by the end they just fit right for each other so bravo to this author for redeeming them in such an equal fair way for me.
Mile Hi With A Vampire features:
- Jet Lassiter-Pilot, military background, martial arts training, aware of immortals and works for Bastien and company.
- Quinn Peters-Asian (Chinese) descent, single mother, new to being vampire(immortal)
Mile High With A Vampire sets off with Jet and Quinn sharing a flight with a few other vampires but during their journey their plane crashes, there are injuries of other vampires who once awaken will be full of blood lust. With Jet being mortal his life is in peril from those that will be going insane with blood lust. Quinn is instructed to take Jet and run as far as they can find a way to contact Bastien or Lucien and wait for help to arrive. As they flee into the mountains they will have to rely on each other’s strengths to get them through the ordeal. But through their journey in the mountains, they start to connect as lifemates, passing through each other’s dreams. Even though Quinn is the one with vampire immortal like strength she is green to her world. She has kept herself locked away for years, hiding from the trauma of her past and the truth of her new identity. It is Jet that keeps them focused and helps her with her abilities and knowledge. But as they fight their way to staying alive and protecting the mortal who aids them, their bond will strengthen. But Quinn will have to come to face with her past and fight for the man who loves her deeply. But will her past and that which haunts her keep her from finalizing their connection and push away this strong gentle man away forever?
Mile High With A Vampire was such a different romance than I have come to expect from this author. And yes we have seen these types of pairings occasionally with Lynsay Sands before which features the heroine being the vampire and the hero being the mortal (human). But this one was different in that even though our heroine is the vampire, she is new and has neglected to learn about who she has become. I did love seeing the depths of her past come to light and seeing her face up to that. And our hero is no weakling either. He has a history of military service and martial arts training, so he is more than capable in many ways. He is the solid and true one in the relationship but also will stand up for himself. He lets Quinn know when she is treating him wrong and sets healthy boundaries for their relationship, and Quinn has to really face up to her own actions especially in how she treats him, and re-evaluate her decisions. I really loved seeing this aspect in their relationship.
So…I’m not perfect. No one is. We’re all just doing the best we can. However, I think you’re brilliant, beautiful, a wonderful mother, and perfect for me
Seeing the growth in Quinn was truly phenomenal and I admire the way it played out in this story. I also had a blast with other secondary characters and we got some laughs with Lucien. Man, he cracks me up every time he comes into one of these books. I LOVE it. As he is one of my favorites of the series, His dry sense of humor just added the right flair to the story and had me having bursts of laughter in all the best of ways.
Overall I found Mile High With A Vampire is a fascinating, high thrilling adventure of a romance, that takes us through the forests, a perfect fit love story that delves into deeper issues, with diverse characters, laughter and light to balance it through it all. A true piece of art that only Lynsay Sands can deliver.
