Last year when A Blood Seduction came out many didn't like it because it was VERY dark. (I loved it for that reason) Well this time around Palmer pulled back on the dark, mind you Vamp City is not filled with rainbows and fluffy unicorns but we get to see a different side to some of the vampires this time around.

Which brings me to the other problem some had with the first book... the "hero". Many were turned off by Arturo as the love interest. I was on the fence. Yeah he was the lesser evil in Vamp City. He was a lying bastard. He was... He was... He was... See the pattern. Arturo starts making up for some of the things he did to Quinn when they first meet. He starts showing a softer and trusthy side. No he did not make a complete 180 and no Quinn doesn't trust or forgive him completely. But that doesn't mean the two doesn't have some SMOKING SEX while they are working on their trust issues.

But the two are becoming closer and developing feelings for each other and Palmer is completely selling it! She has said that their relationship will be one that will build over the series and in A Kiss of Blood we see the small steps toward a relationship forming between the two. They both need to change and grow and I think with each book we will be rooting more and more for them to be a true couple. One much like Cat and Bones, Mac and Barrons. A couple that are equals and partners. Not an alpha male taking care of a weak heroine.

Quinn comes to realize that not all vampires are evil in Vamp City. She makes new friends and sees that if she learns to open up that she could possibly have a small circle of friends that will come to her aid when she needs them the most. Quinn's magic skills grow over the storyline and that chick is going to be one strong ass bad.

While Quinn is dealing with her issues, her brother Zack is learning to deal with his. He feels useless since he could not save the two women in his life; his sister and best friend Lily. Zack with working out and building strength of his own and I think we will get to see him shine in the next book as he works on trying to find and save Lily.

If the darker elements in A Blood Seduction turned you off, you should give the series another try by reading A Kiss of Blood. I think you would agree that by the end, you'll be wanting more of Arturo and Vamp City.

While I enjoyed the second in the series better than the first, the end of the book totally ticked me off. It felt as if the book was only half written, and abruptly ended. I can't even consider it a cliff hanger, but just half of the story. No resolutions for any of the characters, just a build up to what promised to be a great second half of the book, then boom, nothing.... just every loose end left hanging. I enjoy reading series, but I have never run across one that didn't have some level of resolution at the end. It is to bad since I do enjoy most of the characters and would normally want to read more about them, but not if every time I get mad at the lack of a resolution to anyrhing!

    Poorly written

    Typical bodice ripper accessorized with fangs. Insanely repetitive worrying from Quinn about whether or not to "trust this male" and whether to drop the panties a second, third, and fourth time. Might as well because the smokin' sex scenes were the only redeeming thing about it.
