First Drop of Crimson (Night Huntress World #1)
From the New York Times bestselling 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 he...more
If I’m ever stuck on a deserted island or in a remote, isolated castle somewhere, my three survival fantasy essentials would be Bones, Spade, and a Twister Board Game ‘cause I think the possibilities would be endless...certainly enough to last for a wicked eternity. *Bones and Spade high-pitched fan girl squeal and naughty grin!*
This is a devilishly sexy, witty, fun, and smokin’ hot addition to the awesome Night Huntress series, and I loved it, loved it, love...more
Was this really Jeaniene Frost? What happened to the woman who wrote such a fresh and exciting book with Halfway to the Grave?
Granted: I wasn’t the biggest Night Huntress series fan. So many nice ideas but nothing really fleshed out (minimal world building, thin plot, flat secondaries, etc.) But I came into these spin off series expecting a PNR novel. The only thing important to...more
This is Denise McGregor's story (you remember her--"human" best friend to half-vampire Cat Crawfield, who is half of the Bones/Cat super-couple)? Well, ever since Denise's husband Randy met his demise (in the most horrible way) in At Grave's End, Denise has been trying to stay away from her friends in the immortal worl...more
And then there was Denise. Oh, Denise, how you vex me. Denise is a TSTL heroine. She is either being way too stubborn and unable to use her brain, or she is being a simpering ins...more
Spade doesn’t care for humans, only for blood and sex, when he gets a frantic call from Denise a woman whose st...more
First Drop of Crimson is the first book in the Night Huntress World (NHW) series. Although it is technically a different series, these books are meant to be read in order of the publication date, meaning there is some back and forth between this series and the Night Huntress (NH) series. This is supposed to be read after NH #4. The focus is on two secondary characters from the NH series, Spade, Bones’ best friend & Denise, Cat’s best friend. Before read...more
I really enjoyed this continuation of the Night Huntress world, even though it lacked the charm of the previous series; it still brought quite an entertaining story.
We have the best-friends of Cat and Bones in this one. Good ole Denise and Spade, even though I barely tolerated Denise and I am all kinds of obsessed with Spade. We get a vampire versus demon clash, and the transformation of human Denise into something different.
Denise’s whole family...more
Anyway, 4.5 stars for this one. This is the first "off-shoot" book of Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress series and it features Spade and Denise, two characters introduced in earlier books of the series.
I've been a Spade fangirl since the moment of his introduction in the first book of the series, Halfway to the Grave. *pauses review to high five Rane* He's a wonderful character, incredibly loyal and sexily charming. Chivalrous as only a tw...more
There were a few elements I struggled with in this book. I found Denise nowhere near as strong as Cat in character. Her insecurities and decisions proved to me that she doesn’t come close to what Cat has to offer....more
I love a book with a bad gorgeous vampire, Spide fit that bill for me. This book has just about all the elements for a good PNR, it has lots blood fighting action, adventure, some humor, traveling, family, friends and...more
What I found most apparent about this book is that Frost...more
FIRST DROP OF CRIMSON is the first installment in the awesome new Night Huntress World series by Jeaniene Frost. Like her Night Huntress series, I was immediately drawn into the story and hooked on the characters. If you've read Frost's Night Huntress series you know how addictive it can be AND how amazingly written it is. I never thought I'd love another but Bones.. but WOW..Watch out Bones, Shade is in the house! ;)
Denise is still coping with the loss of her husband...more
This is Spade and Denise’s story. Spade and Denise’s relationship begins as a business relationship. Spade is helping Denise locate a long lost relative who owes a debt to a demon. A...more
I’ll be honest. I wasn’t expecting to like Denise this much. She was just Cat’s best friend. I never gave her much thought when she was mentioned in the NH books. But, surprisingly, I thought Denise had some real presence in this book. Not only was she informed about the vampire world, but she didn’t shy away from it.
I loved the balance between her vulnerability and h...more
After reading the previous four amazing books of the Night Huntress series, and exposing myself to the likes of the supremely enigmatic and viciously charismatic Vampire BONES, and hence falling in love with him in the process, when I finally think I have read it all and that I am provisionally immune to the charms and enigma of a new fictional hero, and not likely to fall in love AGAIN with another vampire any time soon, THIS ONE SHAMELESS...more
As for the plot, the Reader's Digest condensed version is that Denise needed help against a demon who was after h...more
Efenim gene hızlı başladık,zaten bu kadının kitapları su gibi akıp gidiyor,Spade ve Denise pek bayıldığım karakterler değil,Denise daha önce evli olduğundan sanırım aklıma hep ''eh kocası ölmemiş olmasaydı bu adamı farketmeyecekti bile '' sorusu geliyor,o sebepten ısınma zorluğu yaşıyorum.Zaten...more
This is spin-off from Jeaniene Frost's Night Huntress Series. I've really liked Spade from the first time he was introduced in the series - so it was fun reading about him.
Denise is Cat's BFF - whose husband, Randy, died on that New Year's eve battle - attempting to help all the undead with their war. With that traumatic experience, Denise has tried to remove herself from the vampire world - even avoiding Cat. But unbe-knownst to her,...more
Denise is trying to put her life back together again after the untimely death of her husband Randy of a year ago. She has sworn off all things undead and paranormal after his death, so when a demon comes to Denise demanding she help him find a long-lost relative of hers who...more
We got a glimpse of all our favorite characters from the original...more
Here's a few words....
I'd heard mixed reviews about this and so my expectations weren't that high. However I was suprised to see how much I enjoyed this book. The storyline was good and I like the whole Spade & Denise love. Although I don't like reading from 3rd person that much, Jeanine managed to convey both the feelings of Spade and Denise throughout. Both of them fighting against their feelings, which ultimately is a waste of time as its clear throughout that they belo...more
I would recommend reading the Night Huntress series before reading this one. It sets a lot of the back story (not to mention, it's one of the best serie...more
Denise and Spade have a different dynamic than Bones and Cat. Spade is much more contained, less impulsive. He was an earl in his...more
Denise was a little hard for me to warm up to at first, and Spade? Well, I would like two of him please :) **wink, wink**. However with respect for Denise after the first couple of chapters I really became invested in these two, and I found my heart aching for Denise. After losing her husband and witnessing such gruesome events I decided that she is one tough cookie and I would definitley want her on my team. The love story between Denise and Spade was just naughty enough to make...more
I really liked this book but didn't love it like I loved the Cat & Bones books. It wasn't as much of a page turner for me as those but I still really enjoyed it. I liked meeting up with Bones and Cat in this book.
This is a great new series by Frost and I'm lookig forward to Mencheres and Kira's story.
All in all a good read and...more
