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.
An immortal war has been brewing in the darkness . . . And now one woman has stumbled into the shadows.
Chicago private investigator Kira Graceling should have just kept on walking. But her sense of duty refused to let her ignore the moans of pain coming from inside a warehouse just before dawn. Suddenly she finds herself in a world she's only imagined in her worst nightmares.
At the center is Mencheres, a breathtaking Master vampire who thought he'd seen it all. Then Kira appears, this fearless, beautiful . . . human who braved death to rescue him. Though he burns for her, keeping Kira in his world means risking her life. Yet sending her away is unthinkable.
But with danger closing in, Mencheres must choose either the woman he craves, or embracing the darkest magic to defeat an enemy bent on his eternal destruction.
Oh, I loved these books! And I wish that I'd read them in time line, because yeah, it would've added to the experience, because these 2 books happened between 2 Cat and Bones books, and yeah, it would've been better to have them all together!!!
Loved Denise and Spade, Kira and Mencheres, because they were really great couples, they worked together, and they were just fun to read about! I mean, a turning into a demon girl and a vampire guy who was friends with Bones, and then a human private investigator and the maker of Ian and Spade, and the grandsire of Bones! Yeah, just awesome people, who deserved to be happy!
In Crimson, we got to learn more about demons, and yeah, how Denise was connected to the demon, how an ancestor of hers made a deal with a demon, and then renegades, and then how now the demon started killing members of her family, and that's why she has to go on the quest to find said ancestor! And how demon blood is a drug for vampires? Yeah, that was something else!
That Mencheres was a Pharaoh, that was something that I didn't know, and it was interesting to find out, because yeah, these characters! And when Kira finds out out the comments, critiquing on her death, and her reaction? Quite funny. Or when she was escaping, and he was outside almost the entire time, watching her, that was pretty funny, too!
Yeah, I really enjoyed reading these books, and yeah, can't wait to read more!!!
