A kiss doesn't mean eternity . . .

Valerie Moyer doesn’t believe in vampires—until she is kidnapped by a fanged psychopath! After escaping her bloodthirsty captor, she’s through with creatures of the night. Until she finds herself under the protection of the darkly handsome Anders. Not only is she expected to accept that Anders is immortal, but also that she is the woman destined to be his life mate!

. . . Or does it?

Anders felt a connection to Valerie from the moment he cradled her bruised body in his arms. But before he claims her, he must destroy the vampire who almost stole her from him forever. His job would be easier if Valerie didn't fight him every step of the way. Still, Anders loves a challenge, and the green-eyed beauty is worth fighting for!

Picking up IMMORTAL EVER AFTER, the eighteenth Argeneau book, and not having read any previous installments, I was concerned that I would be lost, or missing significant backstory. Luckily, I got a fun story with some great main characters and interesting supporting characters, that didn’t involve too much catching up for me to understand.

Valerie and Anders, the protagonists, were really what made this story. Valerie was a super strong and confident woman. I don’t think that it is spoiling it to say that in the first chapter she manages to rescue herself from the bad situation she’s in, and Anders only comes in after the fact- when she’s already gotten herself (and the other women with her) out. No need for a knight in shining armor for her!

My only complaint is the lack of tension. Everything is resolved with minimal issues, and even the relationship is pretty smooth sailing because of the whole life mate connection. That doesn’t mean there wasn’t a good amount of sexiness between Valerie and Anders- there definitely was, and I enjoyed that.

All in all, IMMORTAL EVER AFTER was a light, fun paranormal romance read. Now, I want to go back and read some of the previous books in the Argeneau series, as I’m curious about the backstories of some of the other couples that appeared in this book. And after reading this one, I can see why the series has lasted so long!
