Back cover copy

From the New York Times bestselling author of the Night Huntress series comes a breathtaking new journey to the dark side of desire.

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.

Our customer reviews

First Drop of Crimson was my first ever Jeaniene Frost book that will most definitely NOT be my last. It was like reading my first ever Dark Hunters book (Sherrylin Kenyon) - as if I was being reintroduced to the world of paranormal romance all over again. I loved how our main heroine and hero, Denise and Spade, knew each other before we meet them in this book. Both of them have a history, not a happy one but it is there. It made the scenes and dialogue between them that much more real and even though they had met before they didn't really know each other which allowed me to learn about them along with the characters. For a paranormal romance book this was very low on the cheese, I appreciate it greatly and recommend to all needing to read something fresh and biting. First Drop of Crimson is a companion novel to the Night Huntress series meaning you don't have to read Cat's and Bones books first before reading this one. Of course if you have read the other books you would most likely have a greater clue into the little back stories thrown in throughout the book. Either way whether this is your first Frost book or not you'll enjoy it if you are a fan of action, witty characters, and delicious more
