The popular Argeneau romance series expands its horizons with a mysterious island with fantastic beasts and a diabolical doctor determined to change life as we know it and find immortality no matter the cost.
Domitian Argenis has been waiting millennia to find his mate and over a decade to claim her, so once he discovers she’s been lured to Venezuela under questionable circumstances, nothing will stop him from following her there, neither the potential danger nor the fact that a handful of immortals have disappeared recently, all tied to the man who's offered Domitian a job. Moments after boarding the helicopter that will take him to meet Dr. Dressler, he's drugged and he wakes in a tropical paradise with his fated mate, Sarita, a Canadian police officer who's also been drugged and left on the jungle island in a luxury home, lured by the story that her grandmother has been injured in a fall. Alone but surrounded by cameras, the two succumb to their supernatural attraction but also plan to get off the island and search for clues to help them. Escaping leads to even more danger, though, as they find Dr. Dressler’s nearby island compound and a veritable menagerie of creatures with manipulated human and animal DNA. Having mastered this dubious scientific breakthrough, Dressler is now determined to crack the Argeneau brand of immortality and is conducting inhumane experiments on captive immortals to that end. Sarita and Domitian find unexpected allies who help them connect with the Argeneau clan and outside help, and through their adventures, Sarita just may begin to believe in love and fate. Bestseller Sands’ newest title is a rip-roaring story that opens up a new thread—and enemy—to her paranormal world and will delight her fans; for the casual observer, though, there may be a few too many coincidences to make the story completely satisfying.
An imaginative and entertaining addition to the Argeneau world.
