A Kiss of Blood - Pamela Palmer The second book in the Vamp City series by Pamela Palmer did not disappoint. We pick up about a month after Quinn and her brother get out of Vamp City, thanks to the dark and untrustworthy - yet sexy as hell - Arturo. A series of events bring both Quinn and Zack back to Vamp City, and they are forced to work with, and trust Arturo who is determined to earn Quinn's trust. Arturo regrets several of the choices he made in their earlier interactions and seeing him try to make things right, and peeking into his inner thoughts was a lot of fun for me. Even with all the underhanded things he did in [b:A Blood Seduction|12907355|A Blood Seduction (Vamp City, #1)|Pamela Palmer|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1325986333s/12907355.jpg|18061985], I wanted to love him and trust him implicitly. He is a fabulous hero, and the way Palmer writes him, with his facial expressions, and smoldering looks, makes me want to put my life on the line just to be with him. Quinn, understandably, has some issues working with Arturo. But I think she started trusting him a bit too soon, although that may be because he really is the only person/vampire she knows in V.C. and he says he is going to help her and protect her, and to get her mission accomplished she has to rely on others. But in her defense, she doesn't just fall back into bed with him. In her situation I probably would have! He is a pretty sexy beast. She is also a lot more confident, which makes sense having gone through what she has. I liked her a lot more in [b:A Kiss of Blood|16065477|A Kiss of Blood (Vamp City, #2)|Pamela Palmer|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1356279403s/16065477.jpg|21856116] than in [b:A Blood Seduction|12907355|A Blood Seduction (Vamp City, #1)|Pamela Palmer|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1325986333s/12907355.jpg|18061985].Overall, this is a great follow-up to a great book, and I very much look forward to future installments in the Vamp City series from Ms. Palmer.
