    • 5 stars Vampire Paranormal RomanceIf 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 endlesscertainly 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, loved it Bones [...]

    • I m sorry to say but this was NOT good I gave this 2,5 stars and I m still wondering whether it isn t too generous.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 me was a r [...]


    • Fantastic fun It was intense, a bit gruesome, suspenseful and soooo sexy Spade, I underestimated you Please forgive me Bones, but step aside There s a new man in my life 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 world, wanting to make [...]


    • I ve been feeling less and less enthusiastic about the Night Huntress books with each new instalment I ve read and sadly this one just continued that trend There was nothing overly bad with the story It was just very dull We took a break from Cat and Bones and got the story of a couple of their friends pairing up It was Spade, Bones old vamp buddy, and Denise, Cat s human best friend Denise has been trying to avoid the paranormal world since her husband got murdered by vampires in one of the ear [...]


    • Well, I m pretty disappointed I enjoyed the book for the most part, but it just wasn t what I expected or wanted I knew it was PNR I just didn t know it was generic PNR I liked reading about Spade and enjoyed his character It was nice to see Cat and Bones and Mencheres and Ian who I have a new perspective on.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 insecure idiot He [...]


    • Wow, well, this is the first book in the Night Huntress World spin offs from the Night Huntress series and focused on two characters that Frost s other novels have only touched upon briefly Spade and Denise Spade is your centuries old, English and, of course, sexy vampire and Denise is the recent widow of Randy, a man killed by forces of the dark and supernatural world Needless to say, vampires aren t often dinner guests at her home.What I found most apparent about this book is that Frost had ag [...]


    • First Drop of Crimson is the first book in the Night Huntress World series After falling in love with Cat and Bones, it s only natural to delve into a spin off in their world Straight up, you need to read this series in order The first book, Halfway to the Grave, introduces the Night Huntress world and each book thereafter contains major spoilers It will greatly enhance your reading experience to read them in order Let s get down to business, shall we This book was a disappointment I had zero co [...]


    • 4.5 Demonic Stars I first read this back in 2011, at the time it was probably the book I enjoyed the least in this wonderful spin off series For some reason I decided to revisit Spade and Denise and I must admit I enjoyed it very much this time around Spade is ever the gallant gentleman vampire, but, we also get to see his overprotective ruthless vampire side when it comes to saving Denise from a Demon.Denise has been separated from her vampire friends since her husband Randy s brutal death in A [...]


    • I love Jeaniene Frost s The Night Huntress series and I was so excited that Slade, Bone s best friend, was finally getting his own book Slade was always an interesting character in TNH series.gorgeous, mysterious not as outgoing as Bones but still as fabulous The Night Huntress World series, the spin off from The Night Huntress series starts with First Drop of Crimson and follows Spade and Cat s best friend, Denise s story.Denise has been marked by a demon and Spade helps her track down the demo [...]


    • For the past fourteen months, Denise MacGregor has been trying to get on with her life after the death of her husband and trying to avoid all that supernatural, until recent deaths of her family members start to worry and shock her when a demon not only attacks her but later marks her in order for her to it s bidding Now Denise has only one hope, the master vampire Spade to help her Spade doesn t care for humans, only for blood and sex, when he gets a frantic call from Denise a woman whose staye [...]


    • Watch out, Bones Spade is heeeerrre 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 reading this, all I kne [...]


    • HEY SPADE, I AM WILLING TO SHOW YOU MY ACES 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 is dying [...]


    • I wrote out a whole review and then my computer froze Gah 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 two centur [...]


    • First Drop of Crimson is an entertaining spin off to the Night Huntress series We get to dive into Spade and Denise s story as they come together in this installment to kickoff their adventure in the undead world It was fun and engaging, but not quite as stimulating as Cat and Bones 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 She c [...]


    • First Drop of Crimson is the first spin off novel set in Jeanine Frost s popular Night Huntress universe It s a standalone that focuses on Denise and Spade, who are two reoccurring side characters from the main series A demon has slowly been killing off members of Denise s family After she witnesses the demon murder her cousin, he makes her a deal Find the relative who skipped out on a bargain with him and she won t meet the same fate With Cat and Bones out of country, Denise enlists the assista [...]


    • It has been a year since Denise lost her husband by paranormal means It s only normal that she wouldn t want to have anything to do with that world after such a loss But when evil rears its ugly head, she ll have no say in the matter With Cat and Bones on the other side of the world, Denise s only help comes from Spade, master vampire Ever since meeting they ve always felt a pull towards each other Plus there s definitely an attraction on both sides, and at the same time neither of them will adm [...]


    • WOW Who knew Spades could be so sweet and understanding I believe we all saw the calloused and hardened side of him in Night Huntress books because he is so fiercely loyal to Bones.Nonetheless, he was amazing in this book and we got to see the slow transformation of him falling in love which was completely adorable.To add to that, Denise went through a complete character change herself which was carried out beautifully by the author as usual It was great to see her become a hardened yet loving [...]

    • 4 1 2 Stars First we had Cat and Bones, now we have Denise and Spade Yay I love this world Jeaniene Frost has created FIRST DROP OF CRIMSON is set in the same world as the NIGHT HUNTRESS series but the main characters are Spade, Bones best friend and Denise, Cat s best friend I ve been intrigued by Spade from the beginning of the NIGHT HUNTRESS series and he did not disappoint in his own story He s powerful, sexy, commanding, and he is a perfect gentleman except when he isn t Denise is somewhat [...]


    • First off let me say this, I have only read a little over half of the first Night Huntress Novel, so I really know nothing about Cat and Bones In saying this I will not be comparing between them I m one that prefers PNR over UF So, I was very pleased with First Drop of Crimson 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 throw [...]


    • Even though Spade wasn t exactly my favourite vampire of the Night Huntress world, he s still damn sexy and this book proves it 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 her stre [...]


    • 4 I m glad I read this despite the most horrible cover ever , stars A spinoff from the Night Huntress series, this is the story of Denise, Cat s friend, and Spade, Bones friend When Denise watches her cousin murdered right in front of her by a supernatural being, she tries to get in contact with her friends Cat and Bones for help, but they are unreachable taking time off in New Zealand Instead, Bones old vampire friend Spade decides to look into Denise s dilemma, but isn t quick enough when the [...]


    • Reread feb 2014Denise 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 me blush si [...]


    • For some reason I expected Spade s book to be hotter.It was okay, I didn t mind it What I usually love about these books is how over the top they are The villains are super villainy, the good guys are filthy rich, the sex is MINDBLOWING in a YOUNEVERKNEWWHATORGASMSWEREBEFORETHIS kind of way But I guess I just didn t feel the love for this one Oh well, onto the next



    • Had to give First Drop of Crimson by Jeaniene Frost the full five star rating The book was just fantastic, filled with suspense, action, great humor, sexy and erotic moments, and just overall adventure from cover to cover 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 may [...]


    • While this book is technically the first in a series, it seems to be very prudent to have read the Night Huntress Series Halfway to the Grave, One Foot in the Grave,At Grave s End, and Destined for an Early Grave in order to delve deeply into both the characters backstory and the history of that world itself However, having never read any of those books, I have to say that it did a fantastic job of standing on its own I was only left with a few questions such as, what the heck are ghouls , and [...]
