The second book in The Lilly Frank series joins Torren and Lilly in northern Italy, where Torren tries to help Lilly adjust to her sensitive new vampire body and win her love before she discovers the real reason behind his interest in her.
A newly made vampire requires a certain amount of time to get used to her new body and heightened senses. But Torren's worried that if Lilly doesn't hurry up, she'll be dead before she ever gets the chance to adjust to life as a vampire.
Word among vampires is that someone's hunting their kind, and it's not a quick death if you're caught. This killer likes to torture the victims first, and all signs indicate that he or she is circling ever-closer to Torren and Lilly.
Torren needs Lilly to stop fighting him and start trusting him. Maybe he shouldn't have deceived her...

As he took her hand in his, that electric current ran up his arm to his elbow. He took hold of her index and middle fingers together and raised them to his neck. Put them on the very spot that she should bite. Her fingertips were cool against his skin. Cool and smooth. He moved them back and forth a little over the skin of his neck, and just that small, light caress was enough to cause his blood to pump a little harder, his breath to come a little quicker.
She must have felt it too. Or smelled his arousal. Her pupils dilated and she inhaled sharply.
Focus, he reminded himself.
“Your teeth must go in here,” he said. Then he let go of her hand.
She kept her fingers pressed against his neck. Then, slowly, uncertainly, she brought her head closer to his. Angled her mouth to intercept her fingers. He felt the small pressure of cool fingertips, and her warm breath beyond. Then her fingers slid off his neck and were replaced by her tongue. Ah yes, of course. Her tongue. She could feel his pulse just as well with that as with her fingers.
She licked his neck, her tongue moist and soft against his skin. He struggled to remain still. What he really wanted to do was…. Well. Best not to even think about it.
She licked his neck again, and then shifted and he felt the tips of her teeth just barely grazing his skin.
“That’s right,” he reassured her. “Right there. Use only your top teeth. Just bring them down, almost like you’re nodding.”
She did. And the bite was clean. He felt the blood begin to well up. She tried to extract her teeth in the same way and they tore a little, but he gave no sign of discomfort and it was over quickly. The rest was, he knew from experience, instinctive. Her tongue against the twin wounds. Lapping. Caressing.
“Good,” he tried to say, but it came out somewhere between an exhale and a moan.
She sucked gently, and he really did moan then. The sensation was like millions of little bubbles in his bloodstream, all over his body, flowing toward his neck where she called his blood out to her. Like being filled with champagne, almost.
