Description: <b>The worldwide phenomenon continues as Eva and Gideon face the demons of their pasts, and accept the consequences of their obsessive desires...</b> From the moment I first met Gideon Cross, I recognized something in him that I needed. Something I couldn't resist. I also saw the dangerous and damaged soul inside--so much like my own. I was drawn to it. I needed him as surely as I needed my heart to beat. No one knows how much he risked for me. How much I'd been threatened, or just how dark and desperate the shadow of our pasts would become. Entwined by our secrets, we tried to defy the odds. We made our own rules and surrendered completely to the exquisite power of possession...

As beautiful and flawless on the outside as he was damaged and tormented on the inside. He was a bright, scorching flame that singed me with the darkest of pleasures. I couldn't stay away. I didn't want to. He was my addiction... my every desire... mine. My past was as violent as his, and I was just as broken. We’d never work. It was too hard, too painful... except when it was perfect. Those moments when the driving hunger and desperate love were the most exquisite insanity. We were bound by our need. And our passion would take us beyond our limits to the sweetest, sharpest edge of obsession...

“Angels and demons, vampires and lycans, all set against an inventive, intriguing story world that hooked me from the first page. Balancing action and romance, humor and hot sensuality, Sylvia Day's storytelling dazzles. I can’t wait to read more about this league of sexy, dangerous guardian angels and the fascinating world they inhabit. A Touch of Crimson is a paranormal romance lover's feast!”
Lara Adrian

A Touch of Crimson will rock readers with a stunning new world, a hot-blooded hero, and a strong, kick-ass heroine. This is Sylvia Day at the top of her game!”
Larissa Ione

“Sylvia Day spins a gorgeous adventure in A Touch of Crimson that combines gritty, exciting storytelling with soaring lyricism. Adrian is my favorite kind of hero--an alpha male angel determined to win the heart of his heroine, Lindsay, while protecting her from his lethal enemy. Lindsay is a gutsy, likable woman with paranormal abilities of her own, as well as a dedication to protecting humanity against a race of demonic monsters. This is definitely a book for your keeper shelf.”
Angela Knight

A Touch of Crimson explodes with passion and heat. A hot, sexy angel to die for and a gutsy heroine make for one exciting read!”
Cheyenne McCray

“Lush, evocative, inventive... Livia Dare delights. Fans of Dara Joy will love [ In the Flesh ]!”

message 41: by Monique

Monique Thank you for accepting my request firstly (I want to be cordial). Your book was suggested to me after reading three other books (I'm sure you know which ones :-D..) I was profoundly satisfied with your text. I dived into your book and did not want to be saved. My husband protested against me reading, cause I wasn't paying him any mind at the time, but I just couldn't put it down. As soon as I saw that you had a second book I rushed to buy it only to find out that it isn't coming out until October. The wait is eating away at me. That's what I love about Literature. I'm sure you won't let us down.~~~~Monique

I was really bummed out that I couldn't go this year and he gave me the exact book I would have picked out myself! I was super impressed, but then he told me that you picked it out lol!

Anyways, I am half way through the book, I love it, and I hope I can see you at RT myself next year. :)

Sylvia Sarah wrote: "hello Sylia do you think you can review my work???"

Hi, Sarah.

I'm afraid that due to legal considerations (and time constraints) I can't read unpublished work. If you're writing romance, I highly recommend Romance Writers of America for networking and finding critique groups. You may have a local chapter near you, as well, although many of RWA's benefits can be accessed online.

Warmest Wishes,
