The Rogue Hunter by Lynsay Sands

I used to read so many more paranormal romance books and I really don't know why I slowly reduced the amount of them on my to be read pile. There's just something fun and entertaining about PNR that always makes me come back for more.

I read a few "Argeneau" books a few years back and I sort of lost track of the newer releases so I decided to checkout a few from the library, just to see if I would enjoy them as much as the first few books. THE ROGUE HUNTER is actually the first book of a mini-series within the larger series so for anyone new to Lynsay Sands' vampire world this is a good place to start. This novel is about Mortimer, a vampire, or as they prefer to be called, an immortal who is hunting a rogue in Ontario cottage country. Rogues are immortals that have broken the immortal council laws and Mortimer just happened to be a council enforcer that owns a cottage near the rogue sittings.

Things get interesting when Mortimer and his team of enforcers meet the women that own the cottage next to his. One of the three sisters, Sam, is an uptight lawyer who never takes a day off and is trying to unwind on her much deserved vacation. Mortimer immediately realizes that he cannot read or control Sam's mind which is the first sign that she's his life mate. Sam definitely feels the attraction that pulls her towards Mortimer, and it definitely helps that her two sisters push her towards Mortimer so that he can "help her unwind and get over her ex." Life mates are so rare and hard to come by so Mortimer definitely feels a little possessive. It's kind of cute how he follows her around and does many things to help her out. I loved the two of them as a couple, even though they were a little awkward together at first.

The romance is definitely the major plot of the novel. Mortimer kind of gets sidetracked from his job as he helps Sam with an unexpected task from her boss, despite the fact that she's on vacation. The search for the rogue is always present but the immortals are kind of searching blindly without any major lead. Don't get me wrong, I really did enjoy the novel but I would say it's more romance than paranormal.

The dialogue and the character interactions are really the best part of the novel. The author really knows how to give each character an individual voice. Even the secondary characters were entertaining and realistic.

If you're looking for a quick, fun, paranormal read full of romance and quirky characters, you really want to add this book to your pile. I look forward to reading the rest of the mini-series and possibly the rest of the Argeneau series. These immortal vampires are definitely sexy and I want to find out which immortal will be the next to find his or her life mate.
