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.

From Publishers Weekly

May 23, 2011 – 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.

This series continues to keep you riveted. Exciting twists and turns along the journey. Can't wait to read the next installment! Please let there be one!!!

Second Chances...

There's so much I want to say but I can't be giving you guys spoilers! For everyone who has read BONDED BY BLOOD, you know that Alfonso had turned to the Dark Side centuries ago and this upset his brother, Dominic. For a long time, he did horrible, unspeakable things. He even caused the death of his parents, of which his brother wouldn't forgive him. Only spoiler I'll give you (for those who haven't read the first book) is: Alfonso was a double agent. He helped take down the Overlord and everyone believed he died in the fight.

This book picks up a year later. He has decided to atone for his mistakes, starting with recreating the villa in which his family lived in Spain. He still has a thing for Lily and surprise! Lily feels the same.
I really enjoyed this second book in the Sweetblood's series. I cannot wait to see what Ms. London has in store for us readers. I'm looking forward to how Jackson gets his HEA and if Santiago finally finds someone who can reign in his temper and potty mouth. This is a laugh out loud, heart tugging, unputdownable read. For the past 2 days, it became my Sangre Dulce. It called to me, wanting me to dive in and see if old friends from BONDED BY BLOOD surfaced, and if Alfonso receives his much deserved road to redemption with a HEA. Ms. London did NOT disappoint. Oh, and be on the lookout for the gasp worthy moment or two at the end of the book. Got your attention, haven't I? Seriously. You need to get your copy today.
