May 31, 2011: The Reluctant Vampire, the fifteenth book in the Argeneau series is set in the little town of Port Henry and involves one of Elvi's potential suitors from The Accidental Vampire, Harpernus Stoyan. Harper lost his lifemate, Jenny, during her turn and has blamed himself for her death ever since, so he's rather happy for the distraction when Tiny and Mirabeau arrive with a young immortal in tow. Stephanie McGill is a young newly turned, immortal who is being hunted by a mad no-fanger named Leonius. When Anders and Drina Argenis (Argeneau) arrive to help, Harper finds himself working with the beautiful young Spanish woman. But things get interesting when Stephanie decides to take on the role of cupid and bring Drina and a reluctant Harper together. How much trouble could a newly turned teenage vamp be?
October 25, 2011: The Bite Before Christmas,Teddy Brunswick's anthology (the chief of police from Port Henry), is a nice addition to the Argeneau series. Short but sweet, this story starts off with a really cold bite. You see, for Teddy, being in Port Henry at Christmas is NOT an option. Though he has plenty of friends, family is scarce and Teddy refuses to be a charity case, which is inevitably how he feels if he winds up a guest at a friend’s holiday dinner. For a change Teddy decides to rent the Willan cottage this year, but he wasn't counting on a snowstorm taking out the hydro and blocking the only access road in. The only upside is he's not alone. A beautiful, bold stranger, Katricia Argeneau, is staying in a neighboring cottage and thus is also stranded for the holidays. Now, if a couple is trapped in cottage country, in below freezing temperatures, with only a fireplace and an incredible attraction to keep them warm, what do you think they could possibly do to keep themselves amused?
January 3, 2012: Christian Notte's story, the sixteenth book in the Argeneau series is set on an island paradise called St. Lucia. After a bad relationship and an even worse divorce, Carolyn decides to go on a long overdue and much needed vacation with the 'girls'. Only the rest of the vacationers didn't get the memo. Around every corner there seems to be another couple celebrating their honeymoon or anniversary and the few single men she does see are far too young to even consider, including an irresistibly attractive rock violinist she meets. It's really too bad he's so young but in the end it doesn't matter because according to his cousin, Giacinta, women in general aren't Christian's type. But there's a catch, Christian needs Carolyn's help. He needs her to be his beard (to play the part of his fake girlfriend) for the week to appease his 'machismo' family. Carolyn just can't seem to say No and decides to help Gia's cousin. The only problem is that being around Christian and acting like they are a loving couple is wreaking havoc on her emotions. Carolyn's thoughts keep drifting back to places they shouldn't, like kissing his full lips or feeling his broad shoulders under her fingertips... good lord, she's in trouble.
