The heroine: Samantha – a type A personality city lawyer who is finally taking some time off to relax with her sisters at a cabin a few hours north of Toronto. The last thing she needs is a vacation romance, but she is intrigued by the mysterious and sexy neighbor next door.
The Hero(es): Garrett Mortimer – an ancient immortal and the leader of the Enforcers in Canada (second to Lucien Argeneau). He came to lake country to hunt a rogue vampire, but he instead meets his life mate within a day of arriving.
The Story: Mortimer is a bit disappointed when he finds he can’t read the thoughts of Sam, one of the three sister’s next door. He had always pictured his life mate as more of the Jessica Rabbit type, not the Olive Oyl type. Sam was tall and slender with small breasts and long dark hair and she is a hopeless clutz. Though Mortimer knows that a life mate doesn’t come around very often so decides he will spend his time there getting to know Sam.
The book was told mostly from Mortimer’s point of view and narrated by Rick Robertson who is a very adept reader with a pleasing voice. Though he does’t really do a bunch of different voices for different characters like some narrators.
I didn’t like the side storyline as much in this book as in most. This book focused more on the romance between Mortimer and Sam than in the hunt for the rogue vampire. There was no real villain like in many of the other books and every time things started to build up to something, there was a reasonable explanation in the end.
