First Drop of Crimson, by Jeaniene Frost

Format: ebook, 287 pages

Publisher: HarperCollins
Back cover blurb:

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.

My review:

I’d always loved Spade from the Night Huntress series, so his own book was always going to appeal to me. Here we discover more about his aristocratic past, and his tragic love of a human woman which had coloured his relationships for hundreds of years. Denise, Cat’s best friend, never previously struck me as heroine material but she comes into her own after a demon forces her to do his dirty work.

Just like Cat and Bones’ books, the banter is witty, the smexy times very smexy, and the secondary characters are great. When will Frost write Ian’s book, I wonder? Spade in the shower in Vegas will long remain in my memory 😉

My rating: 4/5
