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 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.
this is not the first time that I have had the opportunity to read from this author. I have read the first three books of her shifter series–which I loved so much I purchased them. So I have always liked her writing and voice in her stories. I didn’t know if I would like Kiss of Blood, I still haven’t read the first one in the series “Blood Seduction”. So at the beginning I was a bit lost, and really there were some things mentioned which I had really wished I had read the first one before Kiss of Blood. With that being said, there was quite a bit that I enjoyed about this story. It has been a while since I have found a new vampire romance series that I just fall in love with. Even though the main supernatural creature is the Vampire, its a bit different. I really enjoyed reading the unique twist on Vampires in this one, and those who have already read this, know what I am talking about.
The story begins with Quinn Lennox our heroine who is determined to save her brother no matter the cost and to also bring magic back and this is where she runs into our male lead of the story… Arturo. There is a sense of betrayal between them but they have to work together to get magic back and Quinn has to learn to just let go and learn to trust again even when its not easy to do so. She can’t afford to be picky with her allies especially with her brother’s life on the line. Quinn is about to face THE challenge of her life, but one wonders if she is up for it and is she will conquer or be defeated with the danger escalating around her…
This was a fabulous book and even though its book two I can’t recommend this trilogy enough. Such a unique take on vampires and love the world building that is crafted in this story. You never know what to expect from this author but the one aspect you can rely on is her storytelling capabilities. I loved the chemistry between Arturo and Quinn, so sexy and highly provacative. And so many badass suspenseful scenes that is contained in this story here. I guarantee you will be on the edge of your seat from beginning to end with this story.
I will say if you love a intense and fiercely passionate story…Kiss of Blood is for you! This new world that Palmer has created is sensational and will blow your mind! A stellar of a read! Enjoyed every moment from beginning to end. No complains here.
