Vampires live only for lust and pleasure in the eternal twilight of Vamp City. But the city’s magic is dying. The only person who can restore it? A beautiful woman from the mortal who knows nothing of the power she wields.

Quinn Lennox is searching for a missing friend when she stumbles into a dark otherworld that only she can see—and finds herself at the mercy of Arturo Mazza, a dangerously handsome vampire whose wicked kiss will save her, enslave her, bewitch her, and betray her.

What Arturo can’t do is forget about her—any more than Quinn can control her own feelings for him. Neither one can let desire get in the way of their mission—his to save his people, hers to save herself.

But there is no escape from desire in a city built for seduction, where passion flows hot and blood-red. Welcome to Vamp City...

A BLOOD SEDUCTION is a great Dark Fantasy for those who like dark violence and a little twist with vampires living on a parallel world. 

Quinn was way to trusting in my opinion, I wanted to smack her upside the head more then a few times. I liked her abilities and the explanations of them. Reading about Arturo and his dual persona's was akin to experiencing whiplash. When his good side was showing he was swoon worthy and easy to like but then bam he is someone cold, heartless and all around a piss poor man. I still cant tell what his motives are as they seemed to be hidden and changed so darn often. The relationship between Quinn and Arturo was a bit weird. He wants her and she wants him but they lie and scheme against each other at ever turn. The world building was fantastic. It was well thought out and executed. I enjoyed Pamela's writing style but I cant say I was totally sold on the story as a whole.

I wasn't crazy about the ending but it was a good way to throw a wrench into things. It seemed like it was going good and you knew what was really happening and then bam nothing is as it seems.

I gave it 3/5 stars
