    These books are pure cheesy vamp romance with a big helping of smut on the side. And, this one had a lot of stupid people that were entertaining as can be.We have Elvi (NOT the plural of Elvis, as I thought. That would be Elvii.), who has been a female vampire for 5 years. She was turned without knowing what, how, or absolutely anything about vampire stuff. She never knew her sire, so she has basically had to figure this whole thing out by herself. Let's just say that I'm not exactly sure how Elvi has survived being a human for as long as she has, and there ARE plenty of manuals on that. Elvi is an idiot. Well, at least she doesn't swear....She figured that the best way to learn how to be a vampire is by watching the old Dracula movie.Really, Elvi??I mean, seriously, she could have done better watching Twilight.So, for the past 5 years, she has been sleeping in a coffin full of dirt, dressing like Morticia Adams, stayed away from religious artifacts, avoided sunlight like the plague, got rid of every mirror in her house, and hasn't eaten. Her name is not even Elvi! She changed it from Ellen to sound vampier.I mean, yes, it would have been helpful if she had a mentor. Someone to teach her how to vamp... I mean, we did have parents teach us to human. Some do a better job than others..But, still... she didn't even experiment at all! Never even tried a bite of food. Never tried to look in a mirror. Never tried sleeping in a bed. So much stupid...And, came up with the most epic thing to ever hit the television since Schoolhouse Rock. (look it up, kids. Especially the adverb song.)By living like an idiot, Elvi has also mistakenly broken many vampire laws. Such as the number one law of: "don't out us, dude!" Again, if she had an ounce of intelligence, she would have realized that since she has never heard of vampires being real, it must be a secret. In other words, telling the entire town where you live that you are a vampire, and letting them speak freely about it is probably a bad idea. Plus, you know that there is always one in every group that is just waiting to pick up the torch and pitchfork with a wooden stake in their hand.Awesome. I also need a new dress, some motor oil, bullets for my gun, and a birthday cake. How great is Walmart?Victor is a vampire who is on the council - the vamp government. He is sent to check out what the hell is going on when there is an ad in the paper with a vamp girl looking for her one true love. Vamps only. No smokers or fatties. He shows up in town to find out that he is only Bachelor Number One in this scenario. There are a few more male vamps looking for a good time. It quickly becomes the Paranormal Bachelorette, so these dudes need to bring their A-game.Weather... why are men obsessed with it? Along with maps, magic, and flags? All of those things suck.So, this book has a lot of silly fun in it. I liked all of the characters, even if they weren't the brightest bulbs in the pack. I am hoping maybe some of the discarded bachelors end up with books later, so I'll be on the lookout for those.

    Oh boy, oh boy. My first real paranormal romance -- not YA, not vampire hunting with a side of relationship, but an honest-to-goodness real-live romance novel. I read it on the way to Chicago.Ah, the eternal question: where the [insert expletive of choice:] are the editors?I spend a lot of time wondering this. I see movies like, for example, The Da Vinci Code, and am astonished that apparently, in every single stage of production, everyone involved failed to notice -- and remark upon -- the fact that "This can't be this -- the fleur de lis!" is not a line that should have ever been written, let alone spoken on screen. Honestly, people, you all failed. What scriptwriter thought this was a good line? Why didn't the editor smack some sense into him? Didn't Tom Hanks notice that this tortured syntax was awkward to say, not to mention an untenable abuse of the English language, when he had to wrap his tongue around it? Why was the director okay with it? Didn't anyone notice that no one @(*#%^ing talks like that!?Getting back to novels, I may blink at one or two grammatical mistakes or run-on sentences or really, really lousy pieces of dialogue, but I accept that even the best authors occasionally have brain blips and even the best editors can't catch everything.But when it happens on practically every page, I start to get annoyed.THE ACCIDENTAL VAMPIRE had what sounded like a cute premise: Elvi Black doesn't know how she became a vampire, and since she's taking her cues from Dracula, she's getting a lot of it wrong. When her best friend sneaks a personal ad for Elvi into the paper, the novice neckbiter meets up with Victor, an ancient vamp who will -- oh, never mind, I'm just going to quote the back of the book here, because this sort of campy goodness really should be shared:FATE GAVE HER FANGS. HE'LL SHOW HER HOW TO USE THEM.I figured, oh hey! Humor! They're not taking themselves too seriously! This can't be that excruciating!Le sigh.Elvi is an idiot. She goes five years without food (although not without blood, obviously) because vampires in movies don't eat. It never occurs to her to try it and see what happens. She gets rid of all the mirrors, despite the fact that she can see herself in them, because vampires don't have reflections. And the townspeople for whom she's a mascot of sorts are just as stupid as she is.It wasn't funny; it wasn't even cute. It was just painfully, painfully stupid.Along come her prospective beaux, all of whom are fine hunky males of the bloodsucking persuasion. And that was when I realized:Holy crap, this really is porn for middle-aged women.Not just sexual porn (although there's plenty of that sort of thing going on as well) but emotional porn. When the other vampires inform her that yes, she can actually eat, Elvi runs out immediately to the grocery store and is escorted by all the men, who enable her lack of impulse control enthusiastically. When she's laid up, they all bake for her. Everything she does, no matter how mundane or how careless, is fascinating to them.They're not even romantic -- just slavish.Then there's the explanation for vampirism. Vampires are from Atlantis, and they have things in their blood called "nanos" which keep them ever-young, but are fueled by blood.Apparently, for all their highly advanced technology, these Atlantean fraktards weren't creative enough to figure out what came after their dangling prefix. Seriously, guys, nano-whats!?The author spent a lot of time repeating herself, verbatim, sometimes within the same paragraph, all of which made it really hard to finish the book. I rarely ever skim a text rather than actually reading it, but at some points I had to or I wouldn't have been able to finish it.She also goes to great lengths to emphasize that Elvi and her best friend Mabel are older women (in their sixties). How enlightened! Except it makes it that much harder to forgive the characters for having the reasoning powers of a developmentally disabled toddler. For most of the book, someone is trying to kill Elvi. Oh, the suspense! SPOILER: It's her neighbor and friend, whose son is wearing pale makeup and fake fangs. The neighbor learned from watching Dracula that the only way to cure vampirism is to kill the vampire who bit the kid. So they go through elaborate assassination attempts (despite the fact that they really like Elvi and don't object to her being a vampire) without ever bothering to notice that their son's pallor rubs off on his clothing.Most of the suspense for me came from wondering who was putting the Stupid Juice in the town's water supply, but alas, that mystery was never resolved.Oh, and as contrived and sappy as you can imagine the denouement being? Triple it.I don't understand. There's just no reason for it to be this bad. Does anyone actually enjoy this sort of bad writing? I mean, I feel like you could have the domestic-man-porn and the sex and the vampirism and still have something that's not so frustrating to read. Sure, you're going to feel a little silly for reading it, but it shouldn't be this headache-inducing.

    This was so bad. It had a lot of potential, but it fulfilled none of it. Stupidest heroine of the series. I feel sorry for the hero. I am giving 2 stars because I listened on audio and figure reading it would have been a little better. The narration sucked.

    Opening Line:" It was a high-pitched scream that woke Elvi." THE ACCIDENTAL VAMPIRE is an amusing story with great characters. It also gives a slightly different take on the standard Vampire Romance, wherein the main characters are all in their 60's and the Vampires are decendents of Atlantis. This is also not a series that you need to read in order, which is great. It's nice to just pick up a book and not need a huge ammount of back story to know what's going on. Elvie Black was accidentally turned into a Vampire while vacationing in Mexico with her best friend. Upon returning home she watches Dracula in an attempt to understand how to live like a Vampire. She runs a B&B and is the star attraction at the local resturaunt where she gives birthday bites to the townsfolk. As her friends age they fear that she will be left alone and subsequently place a personals ad in the paper. This brings several sexy Vampire suiters into town all vying for Elvie's attention. One in particular, Victor Argeneau is an enforcer. Sent to take Elvie before the counsel as she is breaking the Vampire laws by feeding on humans and not keeping her immortal status a secret. Much hilarity ensues as all 5 suitors end up staying in the B&B over the following week, teaching Elvie how to be a Vampire. Two hilarious scenes stand out for me; one, after she learns that she can in fact eat, and makes a mad dash to the store in search of chocolate and cheesecake. (it's been 5 years) The other takes place after she's told that she doesn't have to sleep in a coffin. Elvie then takes all the men with her to purchase a new bed. The whole town becames a part of this amusing story as a comedy of errors results in someone trying to kill Elvie and Victor discovering that she might be his lifemate. A cute story that's an easy read.

    We have Elvi (NOT the plural of Elvis, as I thought. That would be Elvii.), who has been a female vampire for 5 years. Funny how Elvi just watches the movie and believes that is what she is supposed to do to be a vampire. But the Birthday Bite was the best to me. The people of Port Henry were totally unexpected in the way they took care of Elvi. I was never quite sure what Victor's 3 rivals, Edward, Alessandro and Harper were up to and the side story about DJ and Mabel was a pleasant addition. Victor Argeneau and his assistant DJ drive out to the small town of Port Henry to meet this woman and find out what is going on. It's not exactly discreet placing an ad in the paper - and since Victor works for the Vampires ruling Council, it's his job to access the damage and possibly bring this potential "Rogue Vampire" back to the council for judgement. Elvi is an accidental vampire, who was turned under unusual circumstances and has attracted the attention of the Council. Without a sire to guide her, she turned to popular culture for answers and is living in discomfort. Her community accepts her as a paranormal creature and are very protective towards her. Up till now I didn't know much about Victor except he's Vincent's father, has the same genetic anomaly as his son so they can't feed of bagged blood and that his lifemate, Marion, died a few centuries ago burned at the stake. So I was pleased to see this book was about him. Losing his lifemate has made Victor a bitter, lonely man. He even avoids contact with Vincent, his son, and the only thing that keeps him going is his job as an law enforcer for the council.These books are pure cheesy vamp romance with a big helping of smut on the side. And, this one had a lot of stupid people that were entertaining as can be. Was okay, funny but not really what I expected but it was a good read. I loved this book! It had been so long since I have read an Argeneau book that I had forgotten how good they were. This one wasnt one of my favs in the series but it was very entertaining. I enjoyed a lot the fact that the heroine was a woman of 60 something when she was turned into a vampire. What a fun story. It had me laughing and chuckling several times. FUN FUN FUN! A Vampire puts a singles ad in the paper and boy does she get a response. This is one of my favourite Argeneau novels. The book was gorgeous. I chose it due to the blurb on the back, and I didn't regret it one second. It is as funny and unusual a vampire romance as I thought it would be. It had all the "usual stuff" with lifemates, the gorgeous looking vampires and so on, but the story in itself turned out to be surprising and inventive. This would be how I would be turned into a vampire is by accident. This was a funny cute book. I haven't read many in this series. I tried the first one and it was just ok, but this one was downright romantic, cute and funny.

    Curiosamente divertido, Creo si no me equivoco que este es el libro que denota más la parte del mito sobre el vampiro, eso de no salir a la luz del sol, el ataúd con tierra, no comer ajo, espejos, cosas religiosas y todo eso, en esta saga llega a ser muy repetitivo la parte de la explicación y todo lo que pueden hacer que realmente es mito, he llegado al punto de darme pereza cuando voy por esa parte, si son parejas nuevas, libro nuevo pero aun así 27 libros (por ahora, 2017) que siempre explican eso es muyyyy repetitivo.Pero por primera vez me parece entretenido leer esa parte ya que las reacciones de "Elvi" son divertidas como cuando se desespera por un queque de queso o con la cama, incluso lo del sol que ya en el libro 7 es reitero aburrido, le da un giro y anima bastante la lectura. En general esta pareja me parece de las mejores y aún más me gusta que al final los pretendientes de Elvi también encuentren a sus parejas, me pareció curioso la señora del supermercado / vecina y Alessandro, oh Mabel y D.J.A muchos no les puede parecer bueno, pero este libro para mi representa un refrescamiento en la saga y si algunas situaciones son absurdas como que todo el pueblo sepa, o la feria, o el adolecente haciendose pasar por vampiro, pero eso hace a esta historia un muy buen impulsor para seguir leyendo.Como lo e dicho muchas veces: mucho de lo mismo cansa y este libro da ese respiro de no tomarse la saga tan enserio o que se vuelva muy pesada, reitero son 27 libros (por ahora, 2017) y no sabemos cuantos más pueden ser, que todos sean drama o cazando renegados llega a cansar más en sagas tan grandes.Mi recomendación leanlo y no se lo tomen demasiado enserio!!! disfrutelon si quieren drama los próximos tienen bastante...

    I loved this book! It had been so long since I have read an Argeneau book that I had forgotten how good they were. This one wasn´t one of my favs in the series but it was very entertaining. I enjoyed a lot the fact that the heroine was a woman of 60 something when she was turned into a vampire.This was so different from everything I have read before. Although I think it is IMPORTANT to clarify that even though she was turned at that age, afterwards she looked like a 25 year old woman. This made the story so much entertaining than anything else could have. It was hilarious to see a woman that age getting young again and it was great, for a change, that the heroine was not a young silly virgin. Another thing with Elvi was that nobody explained Elvi how to be a vampire so she did what movies said a vampire should do. Poor thing slept in a coffin for 5 years and did not eat a thing. Also she took all mirrors away and stop going to church as well as going out outside when the sun was up. Imagine what she did once she found out she could,lol.I had a great time reading it. It is not possible not to with this series,lol. The most weird things happen. You just need to know that this series is a very light read to have a good time, very funny. But don´t pick them up if you want a deep read, cause you wont find it.

    I pity anyone who started the Argeneau series with this as their starting point.The main character 'Elvi' (real name is Ellen, but she goes by the nickname Elvi because she's a vampire now, and thats what vampires do. Plus it's a take on Elvira.) is an absolute dumbass.'I got rid of all the mirrors in my house because vampires (and thats what I am now) don't have reflections... never mind the fact that I still had a reflection after I became a vampire, I'm sure it's gone now but I'm too chicken sh^t to find out!'Same goes for the food.Vampires only sleep in coffins!Same goes for normal clothing. Because yeah... vampires only wear Elvira inspired outfits.So I paraphrased that bit, but not by much.Such a dumbass that her vampire 'research' after she was turned involved 'just the movies, because movies are faster than reading the books'.Seriously???? The 'mystery' was flimsy at best.The 'who's going to end up with her' (meaning who can read/not read her mind) was pretty much determined from the beginning of the book.Just... ugh. I'm sorry, normally I enjoy these books for what they are but this one was definitely lacking a wee bit.

    This is definitely on the range of funny. It's humorous and romantic and a bit of mystery added. I loved the way the author just dumped a bunch of immortals in one town to woo Elvi. Interesting start. Victor was the not interested enforcer, Edward the grumpy, Harper the normal caring type, Alessandro the childish one, Dj the uninvited youngling. I loved them all. Different personalities and aspects. But I hated the heroine. I loved almost every woman in this series, but Elvi, God, just ...No. I might have over looked her spontanous behaviour regarding food and the bed but the later half of the book was CRINGE worthy. I mean, how stupid could she have been? Well, not exactly stupid, but overly naive. And I hate naive women who blame the man for their stupidity. 4 stars for the man but Elvi gets her undeserved 2 stars. Sorry, not sorry.

    I just finished a reread of this book. This time I decided to try it in audio. I love this book. It's cute and fun, a light easy read. I did not care for the narrator of the audiobook, however. She had a voice that was stilted and sounded almost like a computer program. I would recommend the book version for this novel.

    I know i'm going to sound crazy, but I like my paranormal/sci-fit/fantasy romance to be at least somewhat plausible - from a human psycholocial stand point - meaning, how would a rational person act in situation "x". No one and nothing about this book was even remotely rational. This book was a complete farce and devolved into a wasteland of stupid.Here we have a Heroine who was accidentally turned into an immortal (a.k.a vampire) Her entire town knows about this and is SUPER supportive. Doing blood drives for her, getting her a coffin to sleep in, providing for her ever need. Then, some of these do gooders take it upon themselves to find her a boyfriend, so they post an ad in the NEWSPAPER (what is this 1960??) saying female vampire looking for a mate. Who the hell would really do that? Lo and behold a half a dozen vamps show up and they are super nice, friendly and accommodating - yes, because apparently Walt Disney was the co-author.So the main part of the story is about 5 of the vamps courting the heroine while they are all staying the SAME house. I don't know about you, but that is four too many dicks for me. The heroine is a complete do-gooder and the hero is just ok. And since this apparently takes place in Disney land, everyone finds a life mate among the geriatric residents of this ridiculous town.No angst. Some cheesy, contrived drama at the end, and a total waste of my Saturday morning.

    FUN FUN FUN!A Vampire puts a singles ad in the paper and boy does she get a response. Victor Argeneau and his assistant DJ drive out to the small town of Port Henry to meet this woman and find out what is going on. It's not exactly discreet placing an ad in the paper - and since Vincent works for the Vampires ruling Council, it's his job to access the damage and possibly bring this potential "Rogue Vampire" back to the council for judgement. Vincent is in for a surprise when he gets to Port Henry to meet Ms. Elvi Black. He is greeted by the captain of the local police and told to have a seat while the others arrive. What others? Apparently 6 vampires had been invited down to spend the week getting to know the Vampire in the ad. Oh - And she doesn't know about the ad. Apparently the town felt bad for Elvi not having a mate and they put the ad in the paper for her. So the entire town knows about Elvi the Vampire. What is the council to do about this?!?!I think this might be my favorite in the series so far. I love that Elvi is an accidental vampire - and that she is embraced by the entire town. Also - the whole love angle was quite fun. Elvi having several suitors to choose from was fun to watch. There is a hint of mystery in this as with the other books - but I always feel that it is very secondary to the primary plot - which is the relationship between one Argeneau vampire and one mortal. Good stuff.

    I do like how fast I read these Argeneau books, I start them, and then I just continue until I am finished. A fast, good book.It's book 7, but this is a series that you can jump around a bit in. Still book 1 explains the nano thing fully, sure it is explained here too so if you want to, then jump right in and read this one. The book also has a map of all the members in this big family, and this is good.How on earth Elvi was not noticed before I do not know. Small towns I guess. Yes she is the resident vampire, now that is a nice little town I would like to visit where they are so nice against the undead who craves blood. And this is one of the fun things about this book. Elvi does not know anything about vampires. She thinks they are soulless, likes coffins and all those myths we all know so well. But these vampires are not really vampires and she will learn her lesson. She was nice, because she was so lost when it came to all of this. Then we got the hero, Victor, who is old as dirt and comes to town as he is an enforces and Elvi, well she is breaking a lot of laws. But there will be passion, other suitors and someone else in this book will find love too. A story I really liked.Conclusion:Fun and light is the word. A nice lovestory about how an accidental vampire finds love.

    This was a really quick read, I read it over 2 days. that's because there wasn't much substance. I guess it's part of a series, which I've never read the previous ones, but I don't imagine I was missing anything. A 60 something year old woman was accidentally turned into a vampire, and her whole town and friends are very accepting of her. She becomes 25 again, and even hotter than she was originally (all vampires = hot i guess). She lives for 5 yrs without really finding out what a vampire is. She gets all her info from watching the dracula movie. Yup. She arbitrarily banishes all mirrors, without even trying to look in one, stuff like that. When her friends put a want ad in the paper for a vampire boyfriend for her, she finally finds out the rules of vampires. How dumb, all this time and she never even checked to see if she could do any of these things? She even thought she had to wear special vampire looking clothes!! It ended up being hilarious, though I don't think it was intended that way. Oh, and in their world, vampires were made from nanos created in atlantis. Yup LOL. I don't think this is worth reading, unless the book is just sitting there in front of you. I won't read any more of the series. Oh but it's still better than the twilight series, by a lot.

    This is one of my favourite Argeneau novels. Elvi is an accidental vampire, who was turned under unusual circumstances and has attracted the attention of the Council. Without a sire to guide her, she turned to popular culture for answers and is living in discomfort. Her community accepts her as a paranormal creature and are very protective towards her. This was a welcome change from paranoid, torch and stake wielding humans. Victor Argeneau is an enforcer for the Council. He is sent to investigate the rumours about a vampire who placed an ad to find her life-mate. Elvi ends up with four immortal suitors and the possibility of true love for eternity. This book was filled with funny situations as Elvi is instructed in vampire law and learns that most vampire myths aren't true. There was a mystery and another romantic sub-plot which kept things interesting. This is the perfect book if you are looking for a light paranormal series.

    I listened to this on audio and the sex scene with Elvi's friend (who's almost a senior citizen) scarred me for life. She also has a nasally accent from Montana, I think it was, which made it even worse (sorry if you're from there). Yeah, yeah that may sound immature to readers age 50+, but that's how I felt. I generally like my heroines to be around their late 20s/early 30s (any younger and they're generally written as if they're as dumb as a box of rocks).The plot of this book was really laughable, I understand it's "vampire lite" but in my opinion, it just doesn't stand up to the first few Argeneau clan novels. Every other chapter the male characters (Elvi's suitors) are accompanying her on silly errands (grocery & furniture shopping). I just couldn't finish it.

It had all the "usual stuff" with lifemates, the gorgeous looking vampires and so on, but the story in itself turned out to be surprising and inventive. I mean, really... a 62 year old woman becoming a vampire by accident? A whole town standing behind her as she tries to find her way through the new un-life? And best friends so intent on seeing her taken good care of that they go out of their ways to ensure she gets a man - and start chaos, of course. It's a light, hilarious read I can only recomment. Everyone who likes vampire romance novels will love this one.

    4.75 stars.The accidental vampire is based on Lucian's brother, Victor, who is also on the council. When council gets word of a vampire outside Toronto who is breaking several laws, Victor is sent to find out what's happening. When he gets there he finds Elvi, who's been turned with no idea how she became a vampire, or how to live as one. Elvi also turns out to be unreadable by Victor, which complicates the problem of the council's verdict.I loved this installment. The plot was totally unlike any other vampire books I've read. Both Victor and Elvi were awesome characters, and the secondary romance in this book was great too. Lucian and Leigh make an appearance in this book as well. I hope the rest of the Argeneau books are as good as this one.

    Can I give this book ten stars? It was by far my favorite of the series so far! So funny and engaging and just so great to read! I loved the messes Elvi got into and how she found out what being an immortal really meant, rather than her pretending to be an Elvira knock-off. And Vincent trying to be patient and keep her out of trouble was so dear and in stark contrast with his crusty reputation. I love it when the Argeneau men drop their defenses. Such a fun book and as always I look forward to the next one.

    Excellent novel by Linsay Sands, as usual. Sands books seem to have the witty humor and just enough mystery to keep me turning the pages. I really enjoy reading all of her books, especially the immortal series. In this book the recluse Victor gets sent on a case thinking they have an immortal breaking every law amoung their kind. Elvi didn't know there were laws or other immortal's. She also got all of her information from movies.

    This is another one of my top favs in this series so far. Even though, as a woman, I was still left baffled along with the other males, as to the way Elvi's mind thought things through, especially with the Knight situation. The cheesecake emergency and then the other "cheesecake emergency" had me laughing. All in all, it was a great read. Very entertaining. I'm really enjoying this series so far.

    this book was funny, though Elvi was kinda annoying in this with her being so naive about what it was to be a vampire. But all in all it was in the same aspect as the rest of Sands books in this series, quirky, funny, sexy, and a most weird way of hooking up with someone.

    This would be how I would be turned into a vampire is by accident. This was a funny cute book. I haven't read many in this series. I tried the first one and it was just ok, but this one was downright romantic, cute and funny. Birthday bites notwithstanding.
