fiasco begins. Follow the adventures of Cale learning to cook while
everyone’s trying to help him win over his life mate. At the
same time, he must try to find a way to gracefully tell Alex what,
and who, he really is.
to be book 14 in the Argeneau series. This is my first Sands book.
I will definitely be reading the rest of the series. I love the
humor and Sands’ writing style. I was laughing all the way
through the book. The story is full of laughter, romance, and some
drama mixed in. Even though this book is listed as fiction, I really
feel that it should be labeled paranormal romance. It's a great
love story mixed with the paranormal aspect with the immortals and
their abilities. I truly believe that Avon does this book a disservice
by labeling it just plain fiction. It is so much more than that.
Anyone who enjoys a good romance will love this story. I give it
two thumbs up. Way to go Sands!
