Title: A Kiss of Blood
ONLY ONE WOMAN CAN SAVE VAMP CITY
One of the few humans who managed to escape the deadly twilight world of Vamp City, Quinn Lennox vows to never return. But the vampires want her back, for only she has the power to renew the magic of their crumbling world--and free the vampires trapped within.
When the handsome, dangerous, and all too seductive Arturo Mazza comes for her, Quinn knows she can never trust him after the betrayal she suffered at his hands. But with her beloved brother's fate hanging in the balance, and her own power beginning to emerge, she chooses to risk all on yet another perilous journey back to Vamp City. And though she tries to deny it, her heart begins to hold hope that even a ruthless vampire can learn the meaning of true love.

Last year I had the pleasure of reading a book that had it not been for the author I never would have picked it up. I love Pamela Palmer books so I of course had to read her Vamp City series. There are so many awesomes going on in this world. The biggest draw for me is the dark gritty violence. The Diva loves some twisted evil. In the second installment of the Vamp City series readers are treated to a different side of V.C. It is still dark, but we get to see view points from others who are not happy with the status quo.
Quinn has not been back in her apartment for very long before her troubles come banging down her door, literally. Being the intelligent woman that she is she had started preparing for the inevitable. Her preparations were not enough, conveniently she has a rescuer near but she still gets swept up into the drama of the crumbling magic. That failing magic is affecting the only thing in the world that she cares about and true to herself she will stop at nothing to see her brother safe. I was utterly floored at just how far she is willing to go. I do love the tough girl that is Quinn Lennox.
Arturo to Quinn: “I will endeavor to be less of an ass.”
I was enjoying my dislike of the sexy Jeep driving anti-hero Arturo. He did so many unforgivable and despicable things to Quinn in A Blood Seduction. He did not deserve to breath the same air as her. In a sense Quinn gets an odd form of vengeance on him though. She does something to him that I never saw coming and it made me like him and not just a little like. Arturo is different, but he is also still very much the same. I enjoyed this. I don’t like my hero’s to go through a major personality change. Pamela did something with him that kept his priorities the same, while making him easier to like.
Arturo to Quinn: “You are mine cara. The sunshine that warms my flesh. My sunlight.”
A Kiss of Blood does have a little more romance to it. The focal is still this twisted version of Washington D.C. and the failing magic that will kill many if it is not prevented. I love Quinn and I want her to finally catch a break in life and find a happy place for her. It seems like every step she moves forward she is shoved five steps back by her life. She does make some progress in the fixing her life, but it all just makes me want the next book now. Needless to say I can’t wait to see how Quinn is going to handle her new solution to the V.C. issue.
