Kiss of Crimson by Lara Adrian
Series: Midnight Breeds #2
Published by Tantor Audio Genres: Paranormal
Tess has always known she is a little different but does what she must to survive. She has started over after a traumatic childhood and is now a successful veterinarian, though she some days wishes she had stuck to sculpting, as it seemed to relax her more. When she helps a gravely injured man one night in her clinic, things will never be the same. The man she helps, Dante, is not just a man but is one of the Breed, vampire warriors engaged in a century long desperate battle. Suddenly, she is plunged into a new world and things around her might not be what they seem, from a former boyfriend to the missing memories from the night she treated Dante.
Dante has lived for centuries plagued by the vision of a dark future. So when he accidentally takes Tess as his mate, he will do everything in his power to deny not only the attraction but what they could have together. But are his visions portraying his future or another’s?
Hold on because as you listen to Kiss of Crimson you are in for a fast paced ride with warriors, drug dealers, stalkers, intrigue and some hot vampire loving.
I am intrigued by Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breed series. I realize that I am way behind in the series but as they are just releasing on audio I am a new fan. Dante is the quintessential alpha male as Ms. Adrian has written him and I can envision his internal struggles as well as his budding feelings for Tess. Kiss of Crimson has it all you have a strong woman character, who is independent, loving and artistically talented who meets with the equally strong character in the warrior Dante. I look forward to the audio release of book three.
