Publisher's Summary

From the New York Times best-selling 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 her family’s past is wrapped in secrets and shrouded in darkness—and a demon shape-shifter has marked Denise as prey. Now her survival depends on an immortal who lusts for 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 nightmare together, because once the first crimson drop falls, they will both be lost.

    "Frost and Gilbert and another winner!"

    Ms. Gilbert continues to be one of my top three narrators. Her talent is obvious in ever reading she performs. She is truly gifted and a pleasure to listen to especially when teamed with Frost. Friends of Cat and Bones this book will not disappoint and while having a totally new and fresh storyline plenty of old friends pop in and out. Plenty of new info is revealed about Spade and his past. I love how the author handles Denise's recovery from the trauma she suffered in the most recent C&B book. There is action, humor, heat and redemption in this book all flawlessly entertained into a very enter inning listen. Bravo ladies, I look forward to your next collaboration.

    "Fantastic as always."

    I have listened to all of the available books in the Night Huntress world and Night huntress Novels. As ever, the storyline is great, the characters are wonderful and Tavia Gilbert is an amazing narrator. Worth the credit.

    "Another Frost Favorite!"
    Where does First Drop of Crimson rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Pretty high up there. I love Frost's books and this one is no different. Will definitely listen to it again.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of First Drop of Crimson?

    There were so many it is hard to pinpoint just one.


    Which character – as performed by Tavia Gilbert – was your favorite?

    All the characters were great but I really like British accents and those were done well


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Other than really liking it and hoping she releases more soon!


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth the money or credit

    "Spade what a gentlemen"

    A spin off from the Cat and bones series this one doesn’t disappoint. IF you enjoyed meeting both Spade and Denise from the previous series. Then you will most likely enjoy this romantic sexy and strange tale. There is romance humor action and adventure that makes this one an interesting listen from beginning to end.

    "Pitiful"

    Tired storyline of the handsome vampire and the human destined to be together, but the narration is what really ruined it for me. The intonation between characters was annoying. Who hires these people anyway.

    "CANNOT GET ENOUGH!!!"
    What made the experience of listening to First Drop of Crimson the most enjoyable?

    The Narrator Tavia Gilbert. I cannot imagine these books without her amazing VOICE! As I have said on all the other books by Jeaniene Frost that are narrated by Tavia, they could not be any better! Tavia's voices throughout the book are spot on and you never have to wonder who is speaking. I love her reading so much!! THANK YOU TAVIA!!!!!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of First Drop of Crimson?

    Denise..I just love Denise!!!!


    What about Tavia Gilbert’s performance did you like?

    EVERYTHING!!!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I went through all ranges of emotion as I do with all the books in this series and sub series. The story is so well written you feel like you personally know the characters.


    Any additional comments?

    KEEP THEM COMING PLEASE! I JUST downloaded Eternal Kiss of Darkness so I can get more of this world! I want to live in this world so bad!

    THANK YOU JEANIENE FROST FOR BEING SO AMAZING!!!

    I am addicted to audio books, mostly fantasy. I have alwayz loved to read but could never find the time. This way I keep my mind occupied with wonderful stories and don't get caught up in life's stresses. I'm so glad I found this site.

    "Ups and Downs"

    This story is filled with action, deceit, romance and yes stupidity. Denise the main character in the story tends to get on your nerves. She is completely terrified by the other beings she has come to learn that exist and basically wants no parts of it. But when life throws you lemons you have to deal with it. Whether you to or not. When you are in totally uncharted territory and you have sought out assistance from someone who knows how to navigate you should listen and try to follow some of their directions. Especially when you don't know anything and you asked for help. Denise definitely needs to learn how to accept help without constantly complaining.
