Summary

In New York Times bestselling author Lynsay Sands' new Argeneau novel, a vampire accustomed to seducing every woman he meets finds the one determined to resist him . . . 
With immortal good looks and scorching charisma, Justin Bricker has yet to meet a woman he can't win over. His potential life mate should be no different. But instead of falling into his bed, Holly Bosley runs away and ends up mortally wounded. To save her, he has to turn her. And then Bricker learns the shocking truth: Holly's already married. 
Holly wakes up with a bump on her head, a craving for blood, and a sexy stranger who insists they belong together. She needs Bricker's help to control her new abilities, even as she tries to resist his relentless seduction. Choosing between the world she knows and the eternity he offers is impossible. But Justin is fighting for his life mate—maybe even his life—and he'll break every rule to do it . . .

    ABE: 
    (looks around nervously) 
    Swede…? 
    He looks for SWEDEN again, and again sees only the tops of the bushes, roaring in the wind. A beat later there is another crack! Another splash! ABE whips around. He sees, a few feet out, what at first appears to be a human arm reaching up from a gurgling eddy—deaden spidery fingers groping. He focuses his eyes upon it: the pressure stops cold as we see it is merely a gnarled branch. ABE exhales. Then, as driftwood is proving scarce on the island, he breaks off some willow stems and tries to fish the branch closer. The current dislodges it as he looks on and it floats down stream, bobbing and turning on the waves. ABE watches it go; it looks rather like a hand again; gesturing to him, summon-ing. A real hand suddenly lands on his shoulder. He spins around. It is SWEDEN; he is shining a Coleman lantern directly into his eyes. 
    SWEDEN: 
    It's gone now. There was a sound. Like…. 
    ABE squints in the glare, which obscures SWEDEN'S face. 
    ABE: 
    (breathes hard, listens) 
    It's this awful wind. It roars such 
    that I didn't even hear you approach!  
    SWEDEN hands ABE a flashlight. 
    SWEDEN: 
    Here. 
    ABE: 
    Where were they? 
    SWEDEN: 
    In the stern. Under the ballast. 
    ABE: 
    (exhales) 
    I wish this wind would go down…. 
    SWEDEN doesn't say anything. There's clearly something very wrong. 
    ABE: 
    What? 
    SWEDEN: 
    We're not alone here. 
    ACT 2, SCENE 12 
    EXT. THE FAR BANK. TWILIGHT. 
    SWEDEN is standing with his back to us, facing the river. ABE approaches—he has taken the long way around the willows. SWEDEN turns slowly; the men look at each other. It is nearly dark. 
    ABE: 
    Sweden…? 
    SWEDEN steps aside as the camera dollies past him and in on A CORPSE, a real one. It is caught up in the roots of the willows, several feet from the crumbling bank, chest-deep in the water, vertically positioned, bobbing up and down in a violent whirlpool. The corpse is wearing an Army-green or dark blue nylon parka, slick from the river, with a sopping fur-lined hood. The hood droops, obscuring the face from the top of the mouth up, the mouth which is stretched, contorted, whose chin is far too long. The whole body is stiff like a statue, its flesh an ashen gray-blue. Its hands are twisted and groping, like tree branches—willow branches. One is frozen with Rigor Mortis in such a way that it appears to be reaching out, its fingers gnarled, misshapen; they are too-long, really, to seem entirely human. The bony, branch-like index finger seems almost to be pointing, indicting the sky.      
    ABE: 
    My God, Sweden…. 
    (turns to his friend) 
    What happened here?

    Tourists and natives trolling bars and the scenic places that make up the French Quarter are being hunted.  A mutilator intent on gathering trophies made up of swatches of skin laden with tattoos and scars is the hunter.  The victims, left drugged but alive, are unable to help the police with a description of the perpetrator.  With no clues and a serial criminal at large, the local police have no choice but to turn to the Serial Crimes Tracking Unit.
    
     
    The Serial Crimes Tracking Unit, better known as SCTU, is used to dealing with dead bodies, so they are unsure their hunting skills will be useful.  While the perpetrator might fit a profile, the living are of little help.  After all, they don’t even remember being attacked.  Dealing with the living, especially those who have been victimized has never been a strong point of Aislinn Cain.  As Aislinn and her team go to work at solving this case, they find themselves in a race against the clock. It is only a matter of time before their serial mutilator escalates into a serial killer.

    Wake up. It's the first day of seventh grade. Your whole life, from that day until today, vanished like a camera flash. No one else remembers the last ten/fifteen/we-won't-say-how-many years. 
    What do you do? 
    A chilling thought for you. Reality for her. Yesterday, Amy was about to turn twenty-six. Today is Amy's birthday—her thirteenth birthday—and the first day of seventh grade. The last thirteen years vanished overnight. 
    Amy doesn't know how she got here or how she can get back. If she can get back. If she confides in the wrong person, she could be ridiculed, bullied, committed, even killed. So how can she tell the wrong person from the right one? 
    On top of all this, Amy has to survive middle school, again. All the bullies, mean girls, belittling teachers, and hormone-crazed hellions are still there. Every cutting comment hurts just as much the second time around. And what's the story with that strange snake symbol she sees everywhere, or the guy who seems to know way more about her than he's willing to tell? 
    I Am Not Thirteen is an intense, and devastating, supernatural thriller that will keep you hooked until the very last page.
