Hungry for You

Hungry for You by Lynsay Sands is another entertaining entry in the Argeneau vampire series that involves Marguerite’s uncanny ability to identify likely lifemates.  Fortuitously for recently mated Sam and Mortimer’s happiness, it is likely that Sam’s mortal sister Alex will be compatible with Cale Valens if only they give each other a chance.  One of the drawbacks is that Cale is a sufficiently old vampire that food no longer holds any allure for him while Alex’s entire life centers around her passion for preparing and serving delectable food.  Alex is stretched thin trying to open a new larger restaurant in spite of the plague of bad luck that has depleted her physical and financial resources and has no inclination to meet another of the myriad of blind dates her sister continues to foist upon her.  The question becomes whether a relationship started on the lie of Cale masquerading as a master chef can progress to a true lifemating or whether Alex will be the only one of her sisters to end Marguerite’s successful streak of matchmaking.

Lynsay Sands always has a flair for creating personable characters while weaving an interesting story and Hungry For You  is no exception.  She has penned a fascinating look behind the scenes of food preparation for a restaurant while giving a brief glimpse of the nightmares that can occur which are beyond the restaurateur’s control.  The burgeoning romance between a vampire whose name is a homophone of a food item and a beleagured mortal who has been kept in the dark about the company her sisters are keeping is fraught with obstacles and gets even more complicated when her life is threatened.  Another enjoyable Argeneau story that may whet your appetite for food as well as more of the series.

Cale Vallens has given up on finding a lifemate, but friends and family in the Argeneau clan think they've finally found his perfect match. Getting them together, however, requires one little white lie...

Alexandra Willan is in a panic. Her restaurant is only weeks from opening, but her chef just walked out. Then a replacement arrives, an impossibly handsome culinary genius who sends electric tingles racing through her body...

Except he can't cook. In fact, Cale hasn't eaten real food in two thousand years. Yet he's determined to prove to Alex his prowess in the kitchen...and elsewhere. Because never has he hungered so for any mortal woman. And not just for a taste of her, but for the whole delicious feast!
