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.

My Thoughts: 

In the midst of a divorce, Carolyn spends her vacation in a resort where everyone appears to be on their honeymoon. Talk about a mood kill. Who should be one of the happy honeymooners, no other than Marguerite Argeneau, miss matchmaker herself.  One look at Carolyn and she knows she is her son, Christian's, mate.  I am not a huge fan of lies and deceit to get someone to fall in love with you, so this one was a little hard for me to accept. I wish it wasn't drawn out so long, sometimes I just wanted to shake Christian for keeping the lie going. I was hoping that he would take the matter into his own hands and not let his family advise him in the "matters of love".

We got to meet a little bit more of Christian's cousins, and if we know Lynsay Sands I am sure she has a story to tell on each of them.  I am looking forward to Gia's, though.  Lynsay has a way of making you feel like part of the family.  As always, Lynsay has written some very steamy love scenes!! HOT!

If you are a fan of the Argeneau series or just a lover of vampire romance, I recommend you picking this one up!! It is a fun and quick read.
