My next Fright Month installment is Vampire Interrupted by Lynsay Sands. This book is part of her Argeneau series and was the long awaited story of Marguerite, the matriarch of the family.
Marguerite had spent 700 years of her life a victim of an abusive, controlling husband. But the last 500 years have been the absolute worst. She never knew why, but her dead husband got angrier, and far more cruel in those years. He took to drinking and just plain making everyone in his family, even his children, miserable.
Marguerite, now that her husband is dead, has finally embarked on her own life and started a career as a private investigator. While on her very first job in Europe to try and discover Christian Notte's mother, Marguerite is attacked and nearly beheaded. Determined to protect the woman who is his lifemate, Christian's father Julius Notte joins the group.
But Julius is hiding more secrets than just the identity of his son's mother. His secrets delve back into Marguerite's past and before all is said and done, the truth about Marguerite, her late husband Jean-Claude, Christian, and Julius may well blow up in all their faces. But it may also get Marguerite and Christian killed.
I loved Vampire Interrupted. The truth of what Jean-Claude did to Marguerite will break your heart. She suffered more than even she was aware of and it was just so needless. If anyone deserves her happy ending, it was Marguerite. Vampire Interrupted by Lynsay Sands is out now.
