For the last two years Abigail Forsyth has been taking care of her sick mother, who, unfortunately, lost her battle with cancer a couple of months ago. Now Abi is trying to get her life back on track. When she meets up with childhood best friend Jet, the last thing she expects to do is to tag-along on his job as a cargo pilot.

When the men who hired Jet to take their cargo to Venezuela seem less-than-thrilled that anyone else go with them on the trip, Abi hides in the cargo hold, and she discovers that the cargo comes in the form of a naked man in a cage.

Tomasso Notte and his brother Dante were two more in a string of Immortal kidnappings that have been going on for a few months. Dante managed to escape, and Tomasso only hopes his twin made it to safety. When Tomasso wakes up in his cage in the back of a plane, he knows he’s being transported again and his own hope for escape is looking rather bleak. What he’s surprised about, is the woman in the back of the plane with him. When he can’t read her mind, he immediately knows he’s found his life mate, but who is she? And is she working for his kidnappers?

I felt Immortal Nights was a relatively light read. This series definitely has developed a pattern that typically revolves around an Immortal finding their life mate and Immortal Nights is no different. When Abi and Tomasso finally make a break for it from his captors and parachute onto a beautiful tropical island, I felt like it was a last hurrah to summer, especially seeing as how I’ve already read books that have been mentioning the approaching holiday season.

Their trek to find civilization has no shortage of humorous moments—many at the expense of poor Tomasso suppressing his urge to use her for the blood he so desperately needs at the moment, and the obviously sexual attraction growing between them.

Abigail really stole the show for me character-wise. As Lynsay Sands has shown us many times, she’s a pro at making these down-to-earth and relatable characters and it was nice to read about one such character in Abigail. Seeing her growth from being a woman who put her life on hold to take care of her mother and, in a sense, lose part of herself in the process, to regaining her self-assured confidence was something that was just simply nice to see. She somewhat mirrors Mary’s story from Runaway Vampire.

Overall, I thought that Immortal Nights was a good follow-up to Runaway Vampire. I mean it’s only right that the twins get their stories told back-to-back. However, I was really hoping for some more closure on the whole kidnapping story arc that’s been going on for a couple of books now. I really thought we would get further along on that storyline, but it seems as though that one will be stretched out for yet another book. The ending of Immortal Nights is very promising, and I can tell you already I’m looking forward to the next book.
