“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 dark 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 craves 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 demon nightmare together...
Because once the first drop of crimson falls, they will both be lost.”

|First Drop of Crimson (Night Huntress World, Book 1)|
First Drop of Crimson (FDOC) is the first book in a spin off series by the amazing writer of the Night Huntress series, Jeaniene Frost. I am a huge fan of Frost’s series and am completely enamored with her writing. Her character and world construction is brilliant and every book she writes is just another master piece. Besides, the woman can right sexy like no other, chapter 32 anyone??
When I heard she was doing a spin off Paranormal Romance series, I jumped and pre-ordered the book right away.
FDOC tells the HEA (Happily Ever After) of Spade and Denise, two characters pretty well known to any fan of the Night Huntress Series, also known as The Cat & Bone series =) However, you can definitely read and enjoy this book without having read that series.
I have to say that i didn’t love this book. I really enjoyed it and it was great to get some more time with Spade, which is a very interesting and compelling character, not to mention, sexy as hell. Denise was never my favorite, but I ended up liking her much more by the end of FDOC.
I don’t know exactly why I didn’t love this one. It was fun, fast paced and a great read. It was great to see some characters from the original series, but think the beginning was a bit too slow. It did pick up much more midway through it and I did get to love it in the end =)
Denise has been through hell because of her best friend Cat and has written off the supernatural world at the beginning of the novel, she gets thrown right into the midst of it when her family starts to get killed by a demon. She then turns to Spade, who is Cat’s husband’s, Bones, best friend, for help.
Spade is a mystery and because of his dreary past he does not get involved with human woman. That is, until Denise enters his life and he feels like she belongs there forever.
There is a lot of action in this book, but the romance was definitely the best part in my opinion. I loved getting to know Spade more and seeing him and Denise fall in love =)
