Lynsay Sands- Born to Bite (book 14)

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.

My Thoughts: I love this series, it's always at the top my favorite list. Eshe was not my favorite female of this series but I certainly liked Armand. He has been mentioned in a few other books. He is the father of Nicholas, Thomas and Jeanne Louise but has stayed away from them for years. Armand had one life mate who was Nicholas' mother but was married twice after she died to two other woman who gave him the other two children. All of his previous wives have died in freak accidents and his daughter-in-law also died in what they thought was accident. Lucian sent Eshe to question Armand about the deaths and to see if they can prove that he had nothing to do with the deaths. Turns out that Eshe and Armand are life mates and this is where things turn for both of their lives. My very favorite vampire in this series makes an appearance and he just made the book for me. With them all working together they find out the truth about all the deaths that have plagued Armand is entire adult life. The end of the book was fantastic and I cried like a baby. like always I am looking forward to the next book. My Rating: 4.5
