First Drop of Crimson by Jeaniene Frost - Book Review

Title: First Drop of Crimson (Night Huntress World No.1)
Author: Jeaniene Frost
Pages: 371
Published: February 9th, 2010

Synopsis: 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.

This particular book by Jeaniene Frost, for all those who don't know, is an offshoot of her Night Huntress series starring Cat and Bones. Now, I have been dying for more ever since I'd finished the 4th book in the series so I picked up this little baby from the library.

Might I say it was quite fabulous. The writing was very much as good as the Night Huntress series, albeit, with a lot more Spade. I do love Frost's writing because I always know what to expect. She delivers an interesting plot full of sexy vampires and hot scenes... well, not as hot as chapter 32 in the Night Huntress series, but still.

My very very favorite part of this particular book was Spade's shower seduction scene... poor Denise never had a chance! I mean, a perfectly chiseled body like his all covered in a cascading shower of water....I'm sweating just thinking of it.

I do love Frost's love scenes though. I know exactly what I'm getting from her books when I read them, which is why I read them. She gives me sexy vampires with plenty of hot sweaty yumminess in the bedroom. What could be better than that?!

You say that it is a spin off... Do we see Cat and Bones in this book/series? Can you tell me a bit more about that cascading shower? LOL! How did I miss this? *Checks Shelf* Yup, I do own this book. It will have to go to the top of the TBR list!

It is a spin off, and OH YES do we get to see Cat and Bones, but not til the end of the book and only a bit. This story is told from Spade and Denise's point of views and it is quite fascinating. I do love Spade I've decided.

The shower scene is one of my favorite. It's Spade alone, in the shower, in the middle of a Las Vegas hotel suite dripping with water. Denise is in the bed attempting to not be turned on. It's quite fabulous because we all know he is using his naught body to seduce her. It's just such a wonderful scene!

  1. Hi, I was checking out the 18 and over tag along and stumbled over here from one of the other blogs on the list.

    Gotta say I love what you have done with the place and I plan on popping back to check out more of your reviews so I am a new follower.

    I have just uploaded the first Night Huntress book onto my iphone to check it out.


  2. Oh, the first Night Huntress is pretty good. Jen told me it was a must read. I pulled it off the shelf and finished it not too long ago.

    Enjoy it!
