From the New York Times best-selling 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 shape-shifter 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.

"[Frost's] gift for vivid plotting is enhanced by the confident strokes of a writer at the top of her game." (Fresh Fiction)
This is one of a series of books, about vamps and their galpals with super powers. This is a good storyline however i felt the choice of narrator did the story an injustice at times, or maybe it was just the combination of cliched text and the narrator. Some of the characters were British, and unfortunately the only accent available to the reader were Cockney and posh Cockney, let me tell you it is not a pretty event for the ears when a character sounds like a victorian chimney sweep selling oranges and apples on a market stall.
If you like your romance with a paranormal edge, and you're looking for something to really sink your teeth into, look no further than this book. First Drop Of Crimson has it all: strong characters, action, humour, and at the centre, a romance to warm anyone's heart. I'm often wary of adult paranormal fiction, as the authors often seem to get fantasy and erotica mixed up. I'm pleased to say that the sex scenes are few, but strong, just how they should be. This book is well balanced in every way without over doing either the sex or the violence, though the content is certainly adult. A truly sattisfying read.
This is the first book I have listen too by this author and couldn't stop listening it went everyware, even when waking the dog and before going to sleep. The TV didn't stand a chance, it never left stand by mode. I enjoyed the characters and the speaker was excellent - the characters came alive. I will be purchasing more from this author.
What a disappointment! This had none of the wit and pace of the previous novel Halfway to the Grave. Not only were Cat and Bones relegated to comparatively minor roles, but, for me the obligatory minutae of the sexual adventures of Spade and Denise made for tedious listening. The Demon was far more impressive.
I have read all of the Kat Crawford books and was so glad to find Jeaniene Frost had also written more books that spin off from these. I am totally hooked and cannot wait to start on Eternal Kiss which I have just downloaded.....keep it up Ms Frost I am loving them
Handsome, extremely rich hero rescues simpering weak pathetic female. This book reminded me of Mills and Boon romances I read in my teens. It was appalling, no story to it and not really a vampire tale except the male lead happens to be a vampire. I love the Sookie Stackhouse books but this cannot compare. I should have followed my instincts and given it up by the end of part one, I wasted too much time on this when there are so many good books. The narration was terrible, the woman reads the male parts in a weird posh very British accent, very annoying. Would not recommend this at all and regret wasting a credit on such a trashy book
