Alfonso Serrano is a hunted man. For months he's managed to elude the Darkbloods, vengeful foes who won't rest until he's dead. But he still craves one dangerous temptation: Lily DeGraff, the sexy Guardian agent he'll risk anything to protect.
Lily is a wanted woman. Her talent for tracking Sweet—a rare blood type that's addictive to vampires—makes her a prime target for enemy capture. Her only hope is the stealthy vampire operative who stole into her bed…then left her in despair. Danger aside, Lily won't let Alfonso near her heart again—until an irresistible hunger threatens to draw them back together… and into an assassin's snare.
Intriguing world-building elements and a zippy story line rev up the predictable sequel to January's Bonded by Blood. Alfonso Serrano is a good guy vampire helping the Agency ferret out noxious Darkbloods and halt their long-running diabolical schemes to obtain and sell coveted human Sweetbloods on the black market. Serrano is trying to move on from both his checkered past and Lily DeGraff, a Guardian Tracker who has stayed in Serrano's heart despite a previous heartbreak. Muted sparks fly between Alfonso and Lily, tempered by Lily's eventually irritating fear that Alfonso will merely hurt her again and their mutual tendency to dance around their history rather than come to grips with it. Various intrigues and spinoff subplots help to bolster the story, but there's little in the way of engaging writing or memorable characters.
