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.

By doing so she has also cut ties with her best friend, Cat Crawfield who is half vampire, and her vampire husband, Bones.

Not only is Spade trying to keep Denise out of the demon’s hands but having to help her through her PTSD over the death of her husband. As they make their way from the
During the course of FIRST DROP OF CRIMSON we see amazing twists and turns and learn the answers to questions we didn’t even know we had! I was happy to see that Denise and Spade were not the typical hero and heroine and the chemistry between them was wonderful. We get to see a bit of Cat and Bones along with some of our other favorites from the NIGHT HUNTRESS series. I absolutely loved this book and can’t wait for the next installment of the NIGHT HUNTRESS WORLD by Jeaniene Frost!

Eternal Kiss of Darkness: Releasing July 27th, 2010
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 between the woman he craves, or embracing the darkest magic to defeat an enemy bent on his eternal destruction.
