First Drop of Crimson by Jeanine Frost

4 Stars

(Night Huntress World book 1)

The night is not safe for mortals. Denise MacGregor knows all too well what lurks in the shadows—her best friend is half-vampire Cat Crawfield—and she has already lost more than the average human could bear. But her family's past is wrapped in secrets and shrouded in darkness—and a demon shapeshifter has marked Denise as prey. Now her survival depends on an immortal who lusts for a taste of her.

He is Spade, a powerful, mysterious vampire who has walked the earth for centuries and is now duty-bound to protect this endangered, alluring human—even if it means destroying his own kind. Denise may arouse his deepest hungers, but Spade knows he must fight his urge to have her as they face the nightmare together . . .

Because once the first crimson drop falls, they will both be lost. description

My Thoughts;  Anyone who reads my blog knows I love The Night Huntress series aka Cat and Bones. So to get a book based on side characters that I have already fallen in love with was AWEsome!! I am a latecomer to Jeaniene Frost and I am actually really glad. I don't have to wait. So many books have already been released and they are just there waiting for me. I know there are those who don't care for romance novels and if you are one of them then I dare you to read. These books are like romance novels without the "mushiness" (if that makes since). There is a storyline to every single one of them. Will you fall in love while reading? YES. Are there sexy times? YES. Is there way more to the story? Triple YES.

I already loved Denise before this book. She is Cat's best friend so the affection you feel while reading from Cat's POV is there. Spade aka Baron Charles DeMortimer, is Bones' best friend. I wasn't really sure how I felt about him before. He was kind of arrogant. And to me just a bit crude for my taste. My mind is officially changed! I love him. You finally learn his story and your heart bleeds for him. He and Denise have so much in common. And those shared experiences are what ultimately bring them together. I love the action, the take charge attitude that the females in these books have. They are not "sit on the sidelines" type of women, and I love that. They are there and they prove that it is not always the man who has to save the day.

I had originally planned to space these books out amongst some other series's but I think I have decided to just read away. I have a few books on my TBR list that I am awaiting release for and I will only pause for them. I will, however, try to space out my review posts so it isn't..."All Frost! All the time!" *winkies*

Happy Reading!! :-)
