Abigail Forsythe’s life hasn’t been easy lately. Still, if there’s one thing guaranteed to take her mind off an empty bank account and abandoned dreams, it’s a naked man locked in a plane’s cargo hold. A very big, incredibly gorgeous naked man. And when instinct prompts her to free him, Abigail must rely on this stranger for survival . . . a stranger who leaves her thrumming with need every time they touch.
Tomasso Notte knows he’s found his life mate in Abigail. Now he just has to hold on to her. They’re miles from civilization, hunted by his kidnappers. Abigail has no idea of Tomasso’s abilities, or of how intensely pleasurable their unique connection can be. But he’s about to show her, beginning with one wild, hot, immortal night . . .
This series was in serious need of a infusion of plot and villain, and it really seems like we are headed that way. Taking place almost exactly at the same time as the previous book, IMMORTAL NIGHTS tells the story of the second Nolte twin, Tomassino, the other tall, dark and beefy Italian heartthrob. It also introduces another human woman who ends up stealing the show.
Abigail was a fun character. She’s a bit run down, when we first meet her, but she’s extremely clever, and is only one year away from finishing her medical degree. She’s cared for her mother until her death, and that has drained all her energy and all her savings. When the opportunity for a free vacation comes up, she jumps at the opportunity to accompany her childhood friend down to South America. She just didn’t count on it being quite the adventure it was.
Hidden away in the cargo hold of the plane, she finds Tomassino, drugged and caged, being taken away to a secret island laboratory. Their escape is dramatic and fun, with a hint of the ridiculous that characterizes most of the romantic courtings in the ARGENEAU world. When they finally make it to civilization, they meet up with his twin Dante and a Mary, Dante’s new lifemate.
The twins are identical, but the women do not have the same reaction to both, which was really interesting to read. When Abigail first sees Dante, she worries that she will have conflicting feelings, but as soon as Tomassino comes back, both Mary and her are pleased to find out that their attraction is very twin-specific. I was worried about that for a split second, too.
Abigail is the hero in this book. She really takes the lead and saves the day in a big way. It was satisfying to see her keep her wits about her in desperate situations, and she kicked serious ass by the end of the book.
I was hoping the storyline wouldn’t wrap up too quickly, and I’m so excited that it has only gotten more interesting and high stakes. We’re heading into Island of Dr Moreau territory and I love love love it!Series Titles:
