Blood of Angels (Blood Hunters # 2) by Marie Treanor

Obsession... a wounded hunter, a damaged vampire.

Six months ago, vampire hunter and inventive genius Istvan nearly died in the seminal battle that would change the relationship between humans and vampires forever.

A year before that, he first encountered sexy vampiress, Angyalka, owner of the Angel Club, favored haunt of the undead. Istvan won that round, but when he recklessly seeks her out again in search of the secret of angels, he's alone and so exhausted he can barely stand, let alone fight vampires. Plus Angyalka's out for revenge, and very happy to use his powerful sexual attraction to her…

But Angyalka has her own secret weaknesses as well as terrifying strengths even she doesn't understand. Their battle becomes one of wits and sex, but when someone bombs the club, they fight together to contain all the threats closing in on the Angel, from humans and vampires, including the sadistic killer who could just be dangerous enough to finally topple undead overlord Saloman.

As Istvan struggles to harness the mysterious power of angels, Angyalka needs a deeper strength to send away the fascinating hunter who delivers on all her deepest sensual desires and yet can't come to terms with her vampire nature.

This book was good, but not as good as the first book, Blood Guilt. I did really like getting to know more about Istvan, and I really liked his character. He's not just a strong vampire-hunter, he's also smart, and I find men who use their brains to be kind of sexy! ;)

Angyalka's was a cool character too, and it's always nice to read about women in power, but saying she is complicated is a MAJOR understatement. Her an Istvan work really well together, they're both weaker than they want to be, but strong enough and proud enough not to admit their faults. 

I did like that this book ties into the last book, so it's not like I was completely starting over with a new story world. I love series for that reason alone! I love already knowing how a certain world works and reading book after book about it!

This book did seem to be a lot more sexual than the first one (which the first one wasn't that mellow either), but just definitely an adult themed book.
