Irresistible chemistry and thrilling suspense combine in this electrifying new installment in New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands’ Argeneau series
One hundred and twenty-five years is a long time to nurse a crush. That’s how long it’s been since Beth Argenis first met Cullen “Scotty” MacDonald and he instantly became the star of her most X-rated dreams. Back then, he was rescuing her from a Rogue Immortal. Now Beth’s a Rogue Hunter—a damn good one. She doesn’t need saving anymore, despite what Scotty thinks. What she does need is the fierce, wild desire that finally erupts between them.
Scotty has hesitated to claim Beth as his own. But one explosive kiss confirms what he’s long suspected: She’s his life mate. But Beth is tough, fearless, beautiful…and in immortal danger. Unless he wants to lose her forever, he’ll have to rethink everything he once believed about love and destiny as well as confront an enemy who’s terrifyingly close.
"Immortally Yours (Argeneau #26)" Reviews
When a series is still going strong when it is over 25 books in, you can’t help but admire the author’s writing ability and creativity. Sands has abundance in both and the Argeneau series displays them to the reader's delight.
Beth had a rough beginning so when the ancient “Scotty” comes to her rescue 100 years past, he felt it prudent to give her time to adjust to her new life before he claims her as his mate. 100 years later, Beth is an accomplished hunter in no need for rescuing. Just then Scotty returns and so does all her fantasies and dreams of the magnificent specimen of a man.
Scotty wants only the best for Beth but he doesn’t realize that his ideas make Beth feel he regrets the person she’s become.
Immortally Yours is fraught with miscommunications, sexual tensions, and profound suspense.

Love this series!
Well, Lynsay Sands truly amazes me that she can write so many books in one series and every one of them is fresh and new. Immortally Yours was different from other stories in the Argeneau saga in that they both knew what being Life Mates entailed. This in no way took away from the story, it did make it more interesting since you didn’t have to go through the drama of explaining exactly what an Immortal is. But, there was drama.
Scotty is one arrogant Immortal. He knows that Beth is his life mate and will do whatever it takes to protect her. He can’t help it. He’s an 800-year-old former Laird and used to making all decisions. He has been keeping tabs on Beth right from the beginning without her knowledge. Now that it is time to claim her, he finds that he still has some misgivings. He has to come to terms with his past, her past and the present before he could make her his. He also needs to find out just who it is that is trying to kill her.
Beth is a very independent woman. She is positive that Scotty does not like her in the least. He’s never been nice to her. She knows that he tried to stop her from becoming a Hunter. She knows that he doesn’t accept her past. What she doesn’t know is that she is his life mate. She doesn’t know about his past and what is holding him back from claiming her if it’s true. She does not believe that the accidents she seems to be having are all threats on her life.
As things heat up between the two of them and they get to know one another, Scotty sees what he has been pushing away and knows that Beth is nothing like his mother. His mission now is to get her to accept their future, agree to be his Life Mate and stop the lunatic trying to kill her.
I love Lynsay Sands and never tire of reading her stories. The Argeneau series has intrigued me from A Quick Bite right through Immortally Yours. Like I said, she knows how to write fresh and exciting stories that keeps you invested in the story. I was sad that Aunt Marguerite and Lucien weren’t featured in this book but, I got over it quick because Beth and Scotty were so interesting. I enjoyed the introduction of some new characters and look forward to where she is going to take them.

8b Leer un libro cuyo título o primer apellido del autor empiece por la letra “I”.
este libro y About a Vampire me ha decepcionado . Este es mi ÚLTIMO , ÚLTIMO DE ESTA SAGA que leo . En mi mente todos consigue pareja y FIN. Sands , espero que hagas una saga FABULOSA NUEVA que me haga olvidar estos 3 o 4 libros mediocres que me diste.
Antes de la lectura
Ya de la sinopsis vi que algo raro no me cuadraba. yo AMO A SANDS pero porque la amo digo la verdad , este libro no lo escribiste tú. Tal vez hubieron piedras en el camino o le pediste asesoria a la mismisima de SHERRILYN KENYON porque se nota que este no es tu estilo tan DRAMÁTICO.
cada escritor tiene su estilo y eso se espera por favor.
El que haya leido los libros de la Kenyon donde hay lloro pues este es igual.
Ahi lo digo todo
Durante la lectura
los prota era vampiros viejotes cazadores ( Cullen o Laird sacado de las tierras irlandesas y Elizabeth Argenis española ) . Me dije esto tendrá harta acción y golpe . Pero hubo pura sangre , sudor y lágrimas ( no es la canción de BTS) .
Odio decir esto. Lo odio con mi alma pero este hombre CULLEN ES EL MAS DESGRACIADO VAMPIRO DE TODO LOS 26 LIBROS. Es la primera pareja de Sands que esperaba que NUNCA SE UNIERA.
Este vampiro también sabia que la chica era su otra mitad pero no la aceptó porque tenia traumas. La verdad es que los dos tiene demasiados problemas. no puede confiar en nadie. ni en ellos mismos. ella era demasiada dependiente y el quiere ser controlador compulsivo. Existe una clase de machismo suave o soft en la saga que me hizo un poco preocupar.
Al finalizar la lectura
Me hizo llorar mucho pero para mal. Esto es horrible. y no vi mucha madurez para ser sincera . ¿ como puedes amar a alguien sino te amas a ti mismo?

In Immortally Yours we have a story that continues on with this fabulous vampire series that can still make me laugh and entertain me fully. In this story. And wow, has this series just grown and grown and it still amazes me that this author can bring a story that is lively and make me smile all the way through.
In this story, we have a story of two people that are fated to be together, but due to certain circumstances aren't together. Our hero and heroine have known each other for centuries, but when our heroine was turned, it was a very traumatic experience and our hero Scotty, didn't let her know that they were lifemates. He thought she was way too young and he struggled with certain decisions she had made in her "human life". In Beth's mind, she has always thought that Scotty hasn't liked her even. Wanting her to lose her memories from her human life, and not supporting her being a rogue hunter. But when Beth's life is put in danger, Scotty is her guardian. He refuses to leave her side while they figure out why they want Beth's life.
At first in Immortally Yours there are some big miscommunication that comes into play between Scotty and Beth here. We see the way that they have a very vibrant connection to each other, but Beth doesn't realize it at first. For about the first half of the story, Beth doesn't have good thoughts for Scotty. They do have some unresolved issues that they have never really discussed. You understand why that has happened though, so it wasn't a huge issue for me. However my real problem I had was the hero. He was a bit self righteous at times, of course, the way his mother was, you can understand why. But at the same time, I just couldn't understand why he was so judgmental of the heroine at times. Other than that though, I had a blast with this book. The heroine was quite frankly....awesome. She could kick ass, spirited and funny. She definitely knows how to handle Scotty even in the worst of times. Once Beth and Scotty resolve the past with each other, then their relationship really goes more deerper and the romance between them really blossoms.
Immortally Yours is a spirited and thrilling tale with a bite....its a romance that will make you laugh, gives you tingles up the spine and keeps you on edge!

I received a copy of this title to read and review for Wicked Reads
I read Immortally Yours as a standalone, as I haven't read the Argeneau series since the very beginning books, eons ago. I wasn't overly confused in the beginning by doing so. Obviously I didn't have past books to put the characters in perspective, but it started off as most UF/PNR books do, so it was easy enough to understand as a standalone. However, I may have enjoyed it more if I was caught up on the series, and had the foreshadowing and past connections to add more layers and emotion to their story.
Beth is a hunter for the Immortal Council (there's a lot I missed out on due to not being caught up, and I didn't rate the book on this, as that's my bad, but it was easy to surmise the world-building after reading many UF/PNR series) Beth is a kick butt and take names heroine. After being immortal for the last 120+ years, she's strong with flaws and saves herself, and has a tragic past.
Scotty is ancient by comparison to Beth. With his thick Scottish brogue, it was humorous trying to figure out what he as actually saying. I enjoyed it, others may have found it a bit much. Other than his accent, I didn't enjoy Scotty as a character. His actions/reaction/how he treated Beth (shaking my head while muttering no underneath my breath).
Without ruining the plot, there is a ton of manufactured angst by immortals who are 120-800 years of age, yet their actions and reactions didn't seem to mirror the maturity they 'should' possess. Miscommunication, holding back, talking around things yet never truly saying what you mean... all as a means to 'draw' it out.
The romance between these two mates spans decades (a century even), so maybe I'm missing out on information from past books. Scotty has known Beth was his mate from the very beginning but left her alone to 'heal' from the traumatic circumstances- Beth's doing well, so why is Scotty still avoiding the obvious? There were predictable story threads outside of the romance dealing with rogues and whatnot, but the romance is front and center.
I found Immortally Yours to be an enjoyable, light read, and thoroughly connected to Beth. She's strong, knows what she wants and how to get it, doesn't bow down to Scotty and do as he says. But she also was rational, never displaying the TSTL tendencies that plague UF/PNR. However, I felt Scotty's 'suggestion' to be so far off base that it kind of ruined the romance for me... just something about his character rubbed me wrong.
I highly recommend for fans of the series and author. My rating does not reflect on the fact that I read it as a standalone, or that I didn't enjoy Scotty as a character. The rating is based on my entertainment/enjoyment factor, and I needed a bit more plot-wise.
