The two prequels to this series were great so I had high expectations for the full novel. I was not disappointed in the least. I am adding this author to my list of faves. I love her style of writing and look forward to more books by this author, especially the sequel to this story!

Serena is haunted by the ghost of her lover Devon. The two of them together are searching for a body for him to possess so that they can be together once again. Serena is a spit-fire, a strong woman who'll call you o

I didn't bother to read the book description before requesting a copy of this book to review. My decision was based solely on the cover art and the author's name. Although I've bought books by this author, I'd not yet gotten around to reading them. The cover art is reminiscent of the Crimson Shadow series, so I followed a hunch that proved right.

Scarlet Night is set in the world of Nathan Squiers' Crimson Shadow. As soon as I saw there were therions in the story, I knew I'd hit gold.

I received this book from Megan in exchange for an honest review and I just have to say THANK YOU!!!

First I would like to tell Miss Megan... YOU'RE KILLING ME! And now that I have expressed my current torture, I can get on with the review.

I started with the prequels to this fabulous book which give a short back story to Vane and Serena and where their lives were at the moment before they met, but even without those very short shorts, you can start from page one of Scarlet

Bring Serena back to her clan to save them from an old clan member hell bent on destroying them all, including Serena if she chooses to stand by them.

Wow, after having read the two prequels that greatly lead the path to this the full novel, I was so eager to start “Scarlet Night”!!

Prequels:
The Fighter by Nathan Squiers (Zane’s side)
The Lover by Megan J. Parker (Serena‘s side)

What an amazing epic story, Serena by far is my favorite character! I love her spunky quirky ways and attitude.



For lovers of paranormal with a kick butt twist, then The Scarlet Night is definitely for you. It’s chalk

And then there's Zane, the big ol' brute of a vampire who's been cursed with tattoos that bring out the monster inside him. Throw in another auric vampire friend, her forbidden therion lover, and a

Serena is dragged back into her old life when Zane “a cursed vampire” steps into the picture. A fight for the clan between Serena and Keith began to happen.

At first, I thought this book was really cool. Vampires, fights, a really unique style to a vampire story. I liked how the vampires had “auras” and could fight with them. That was really cool! And Serena had a dead lover that was stuck in her aura. A lot of the lore and style of this book was very well written and cool. I also thought the fa

What a great story! This was one of those stories that had so much going on you couldn't put it down until it was done. Action packed from the first page on, Scarlet Night will be a story that stays with you long after you turn the last page.

I love anything and everything written by these two authors. The story that they can weaver keeps you not only entertained but engaged. You WANT to find out what is going on with the main characters, you find yourself falling in love with the series right after you read book one. If you have read the Prequels to this story then you know who the main characters are and why they are the way they are. I would say you do not have to read them to read this story first but it is a quick fun read to do ...more

This is a YA paranormal romance that starts off with a lot of action from the opening chapter. The vampire, Serena, her lover, Devon and the ‘monster’ Zane with the glowing tats, were involved in first a physical fight between Serena and Zane and then a romantic tryst between, Serena, Devon and Zane.
Serena left her family and her clan a long time ago to gain her freedom and escape the responsibilities she knew would one day fall on her as the daughter of the head of the clan. She spent a g

I was a little apprehensive about this book because my first thought was "hmmmm yet another vampire story". Within the first chapter though I was hooked! This definitely isn't just "another vampire story" and the lore involved was different from any other I'd ever seen. The characters just draw you in from the start and you can't help but love them for all their strengths and flaws. The descriptions were vivid and detailed, making it easy to picture every detail, and the story was..well, Wow! Tw ...more

First of all, this book was given to me by the author in return for a honest review, from the FA of the month event at WaAr (on Facebook).
As always I will not summarize the book, you have to read it yourself.

Let me start by saying I liked it. I thought it was funny, interesting and had just the right amount of action.
I did like the fact that it was a little different then your typical Vampire story. At first the whole 'Aura' stuff threw me off, but after I continued readi

I fell in love with the characters during the prequels “The Lover” and “The Fighter”, so couldn’t wait to read this, and thankfully I was far from disappointed.

The author has a great writing style, is very descriptive and the characters all develop further, and with more being introduced throughout the book, the reader is transported into an unforgettable paranormal world.

The clan that she belongs to is heading for a big fight between the rightful successor Selena and challenger Keith. Help comes from vampire Zane, whose tattoos are causing him serious anger management issues.

I was given this e-book in exchange for an honest review and like the many new authors books I have recently reviewed, I really enjoyed it.

Be warned, there is a fair amount of strong language used but in a comical way. Some of the most action-packed scenes made me laugh because of Serena and Zane’s banter.

Serena has the uncanny ability to irritate anyone and get under their skin without trying. Her bluntness is refreshing and sets her apart from ‘ordinary’ female protagonists

This story has everything I look for in a paranormal – Vampires, Therions, ghost, monsters, action, mystery, romance, witty banter and let’s not forget…a cliffhanger that left me saying ‘…BUT???!!!’. It took me a little while to get into the book but once I was hooked and there was no putting it down. It was like riding a roller coaster for the first time in the dark. You’re not quite sure where you’re going but once you get there you just want to do it again. Looking forward to the next install ...more

What a great and unique book. The story had me hooked from the first page and i fell in love with the characters and would defy any one else not to. I have read loads of vampire books, with many different takes on what a vampire is and how they behave, and this book was a refreshing changed. the plot was very easy flowing and the twists and turns it took me on were very entertaining.I can not wait to read the next one.

Holy smokes this book is amazing! I could not put it down amd wanted to cry when it was over! Serena finds out her father is dead and she is willed to take over the vampire coven. Zane locates Serena and brings her back to the coven. Serena's brother is pissed and starts a war. This book is fast paced and ends too soon! This book does have some sexy men and some sexy scenes included! Can't wait to find out what the cliffhangers about! WaAR

I was very impressed with the story, it was writen so well that it pulled me in without even realizing it. One minute it was just a story and the next I am in tears over something, yes, litteral tears. It was easy to familiarize myself with the characters that's how well written the story is.

I would HIGHLY recommend this book to anyone who likes drama, romance, fighting, and sarcasm dripping fast...lol I myself cannot wait for more, I just hope it's not to long.
