Romance Review – Under A Vampire Moon


Under A Vampire Moon By Lynsay Sands

Review by Cynthia F.  (frazerc)


What kind of mother invites her son along on her honeymoon?  One who has discovered the perfect lifemate for him.  Marguerite Argeneau is the bride honeymooning in the Caribbean with her new (or new again) husband, Julius Notte.  Famous among her extended family as a matchmaker extraordinaire, she casually meets Carolyn.  After a quick stroll through her head Marguerite feels she will be perfect for Christian, her and Julius’ 500 year old son.  (The whys and wherefores for that are covered in another book:  Vampire, Interrupted.  No, you don’t have to have read it before this one, but you will probably want to after this one.)  So she arranges for Christian and his cousins to bring their band to the island to perform – and not so incidentally meet the lovely Carolyn.

Christian is thrilled with Carolyn but Carolyn? not so much. She has issues, BIG issues, especially with a 42 year old almost-divorced woman getting obsessed with a hot stud boy toy in his 20s. So cousin Gia has the brilliant idea to tell Carolyn that Christian is gay – but in the closet – and would really appreciate her being his ‘pretend’ girlfriend while they are on the island.  Much merriment and frustration ensue…

It’s a great book in the style of the earliest ones of this series.  It’s light and funny and we feel for poor Christian whose love life is being interfered with by both his parents and his cousins.  His attempts – and failures – to keep his desire in check definitely raise the sexual temperature!  Carolyn’s behavior seems to be a little odd – until the end of the book when the machinations of her soon-to-be-ex are revealed.

So, witty dialog, nefarious (and not so nefarious) plots, lovely setting and hot romance – what’s not to love?  I’ll be buying the ebook when it’s out for my Kindle…

    Howdy, I do believe your website might be having browser compatibility issues.

    When I look at your web site in Safari, it looks fine
    however when opening in IE, it’s got some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to provide you with a quick heads up! Besides that, wonderful website!
