"Can I see your fangs again?" Valerie asked.
"Er..." Justin said, then spotted Anders and smiled in relief. "Anders, buddy. Show your woman your fangs."
"Shy, Bricker? You?" Anders asked dryly, moving forward again as Valerie glanced around to smile at him.
"Nah. I just don't want to show you up by letting her see how much bigger my fangs are than your," Justin responded.
"Actually, I saw Anders's fangs at his house this afternoon and they're bigger than yours," Valerie said at once , and then Anders reached her side, she glanced at him and asked, "Why? Is it like big fangs, big feet, big--?"
Immortal Ever After by Lynsay Sands (page 270)
Immortal Ever After finally brings a life mate for Anders, the quiet immortal that has been in the background of several of the other books in the series. I know I was excited for Anders to get his HEA. The story opens with our heroine, Valerie Moyer, being held as a blood slave. In the opening scenes she escapes her captor and calls in the police, which alerts the Enforcers to a possible Immortal situation. Valerie is injured during the escape and wakes at Lucian and Leigh's home. So, we get to see one of our past couples in the present. Leigh is VERY pregnant and Lucian is being a "momma hen" with her. It ads a light back drop with the humor that Leigh brings to the story as she is dealing with it. Of course Lucian and Leigh do their part to help bring these two life mates together. I think Leigh's interactions with the other characters throughout this story might have been my favorite parts. I like humor in my stories. Valerie and Anders are very much a like in some respects. They have some past history which colors their present thinking in regards to relationships. The story helps them learn about each other and build the relationship, while Valerie is healing. The rogue pops back up of course and Valerie shows that a heroine doesn't always need a hero.
Definitely a must read, especially for those that have been reading Lynsay's Argeneau Novel series.
