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 Well, I'm pretty disappointed. She is either being way too stubborn and unable to use her brain, or she is being a simpering insecure idiot.
Her internal whining about how Spade could never love her because she's human just about drove me to drink. I have to stop before I get all worked up about it again. But seriously, it's a quick read because you can skip all of Denise's internalizing , and it's really almost worth reading just because of the ridiculousness that is Denise.
Seriously, most. But, Yay! Spade is hot! Edited to add: I can't believe I forgot to mention Ian. He is hot, but cannot be trusted. View all 75 comments. 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 connection to this couple. Denise's character is so flat, you could have paired a doormat up with the hero and created the same amount of interest. The couple was thrown together in a contrived fashion with no build up and minimal at best explanation. And let me say, the demon story line was interesting, but there were too many questions left unanswered for me. It needed more demon background since the species was newly introduced. I was left wanting more. To conclude, I loved Spade in the Night Huntress series and was a tad upset that this book wasn't better.
It was nice to see our favorite characters Cat and Bones, and even Ian, who continues to become more interesting to me. I love Jeaniene Frost's writing and story telling, and an okay read from her won't in any way stop me from continuing to be a big fan of hers.
The next book in this series is Mencheres's book. I like him and I'm hopeful he will get a fabulous book. I can't wait to read it. Rating Legend: Slade was always an interesting character in TNH series…. I loved the tension and attraction between the two of them. They are such a good match. I enjoyed their back-story and how much they helped each other. If you like the Night Huntress series, you will love this one!!! View all 7 comments. I first read this back in , 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 4. Denise is still struggling with PTSD and has really bad moments when in certain situations, but, Spade manages to gain her trust and sooth her through these difficult episodes.
Spade is patient, caring, and understanding and eventually although it still seemed to take freaking forever! As the Demon continues to be a threat Spade and Denise grow closer and closer I loved that it wasn't instant love on both parts, they both had to get over lost loves and slowly begin to trust in their feelings.
We get appearances from our favorite naughty vampire Ian and naturally Cat, Bones, and Mencheres. I thoroughly enjoyed my reread and upped my original three star rating. Favorites Quotes: Originally read: September Sep 28, Rane rated it it was amazing Shelves: Now Denise has only one hope, the master vampire Spade to help her.
Denise is also morning her family members and their strange deaths, when her cousin Paul says something that puts her on the edge when he voices his worries about how odd the deaths were and feeling if someone was following him. When he and Denise leave from the bar, Denise is in shock when a man out of no where kills her cousin, turns into a dog and later shows up at her house as a little girl no less marking her with tattoos- telling her of her old relative with back stabbed him and he wants him in exchange for her life and the lives of her family.
Not knowing where else to turn she finds herself calling Spade to help her. When she finds herself with the master vampire, she finds herself not only fighting against time to find her old relative, but her growing attraction turned love for Spade!
First Drop of Crimson (Night Huntress World, Book 1)
Spade surprised me, made me laugh and made me sigh in happiness. He was sly with his seductive ways in order for Denise to notice him even having a showy shower. Spade has some trouble accepting Denise choices along the way, but his love and understanding opens a lot of doors for the two and heal a lot of wounds along the way. Denise was very human, but one strong lady.
Denise at times I wanted to smack her while hugging her. Denise has a backbone of steel and when push comes to shove, Denise is willing to stand up and fight and that made me cheer for her. As she says goodbye to her old life and hello to her new life with Spade brought a few tears of joy to my eyes.
This book was a total gem and joy to read, I loved everything about it, and it had Spade.. Another Spade and Denise book of course! View all 10 comments.
Feb 04, Brenna rated it really liked it Shelves: Watch out, Bones! Spade is heeeerrre! 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. Before rea Watch out, Bones! So, this book is centered around the problem of Denise being threatened and blackmailed with the lives of her family members by a demon. Spade being the gentlemen that he is, offers to help Denise even though she adamantly refuses. Aside from tasting delicious, they were usually more trouble than they were worth.
As Spade and Denise spend more time together, their attraction grows. She was special. It is told in third person, so we get to see what both Denise and Spade are thinking and feeling throughout the book.
It was so awesome to see another side to Denise. In NH, she seems so sweet, innocent, and unassuming. Starting this book, I never thought I would fall for him the way I did. He is a gentleman, but so intense and fierce sometimes to the point I wanted to smack him, but hey Add that to his odd combination of gallantry, ruthlessness, and loyalty.
I love how him and Denise interact. But, who really made an impression and shined throughout was Ian. He is so effing hilarious! It was also fun to see Denise give him shit for his crazy antics.
Something raunchy too. Think I'll rub off one before I go to sleep. The perve in me was very satisfied by this one! I ate it up, every word. There is just something about the way I felt during this that just makes it stand out for me. I highly, highly recommend this book! View all 20 comments. We have the best-friends of Cat and Bones in this one. We get a vampire versus demon clash, and the transformation of human Denise into something different.
It just too odd for healthy people to be dying of heart attacks and other natural causes and she has a sneaking suspicion that she is next. When a little girl comes a knocking at her door one night, and then transforms right before her eyes into a man. Seems all the things she feared becomes true, it seems she is a descendent of someone who made a deal with a demon, and he wants the whole family to pay up. Being a part of their world has brought her nothing but pain, but it seems that depending on one vamp in particular might end up saving her life.
Relationship with humans always ends badly, and Spade knows this first-hand. He gets a call from Denise, and it becomes a job to keep her alive, while trying to avoid his lusty feelings in his pants. It becomes quite predictable actually. Well I liked it, I really did enjoy Spade. He makes me want eat him alive and spit out his belt afterwards. For those who have read the Cat and Bones series, you will know Ian. Seriously, what happened here?
This is one creepy looking dude, and it no way does it resemble Spade. Spade is sex on legs; this cover guy is one look away from being a pervert or Bram Stokers Dracula in other words un-sexy. So I enjoyed book, wanna do Spade and all that.
View 1 comment. Jan 02, Jacqueline's Reads rated it it was amazing Shelves: I highly recommend you read the books in order. You get so much more detail that way. From the first page I loved the book. I really like Denise in the previous books and I was curious to where her story was going to go. She needs someone to help her and so she asks Shade. I love Shade! I love the tension between Denise and Shade.
I like the world building and we get to know a little more of Demons and the kinds there are. I liked that too, it was just different. The love the way it was written and the flow is amazing. This is the first book in the Night Huntress World series, a spinoff from the glorious Night huntress series. Dennis MacGregory , best friend to legendary Cat Crawfield. Dennis fights even through she been thro hell. And Spade patient but possessive. Just amazing: May 30, Rachel Reads Ravenously rated it really liked it Shelves: 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.
Bottom line? I liked this book, Denise and Spade both had such a tragic past and it was nice to see how their relationship developed with all of their emotional obstacles. So an enjoyable read, but not my favorite in these two series. Originally posted at: Feb 09, Beanbag Love rated it really liked it. I wrote out a whole review and then my computer froze.
Anyway, 4. 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. Chivalrous as only a tw I wrote out a whole review and then my computer froze. Chivalrous as only a two century old earl can be. He's truly lovely.
Denise was introduced in the second book. She had become Cat's good friend after the latter rescued her from a vampire attack. Denise met and married a man named Randy who was, coincidentally, Bones' friend. It shouldn't come as a spoiler to anyone by this point that Randy didn't make it through all four Night Huntress books.
It was a heartwrenching event and it's been given it's due respect in this book, which is important. I love that Denise doesn't come to see all Randy's flaws the way a lot of stories handle the new HEA.
She doesn't entertain delusions of a life of solitude because she'll never love again, either. She's practical. Grieving heavily, but getting on with her life. She wasn't ready to fall in love yet, but that doesn't mean she'd shut off the possibility for the future. But she definitely doesn't want to spend any time with, much less fall in love with, a member of the undead. Then she needs Spade's help to save her family from a demon. And the discomfort begins!
She's been staying away from all things supernatural for months, even letting her friendship with Cat lapse, and Spade's vowed never to become seriously involved with a human again. Oh, silly characters. They are both intensely attracted to each other and the sparks really fly with them. When they finally consummate, it's a good idea to have a fan handy. They're very good together. I wasn't sure I was going to like Denise, but I did. My love of Spade was never in doubt. I really like them together and I look forward to seeing them in future books.
Denise is demon branded forever? I understand that, but I'm just not all that happy about it.
First Drop of Crimson by Jeaniene Frost
And is Nathaniel reformed enough to keep his fool mouth shut about the Red Dragon blood she's pumping. I assume there's been a mind meld, a compulsion to never tell that secret, but they can't trust that every other person who knew is dead. I feel like Denise is going to go through eternity with a target on her. I would like to see her use her shape-shifting abilities in battle in the future. That would go a long way toward making me accept this arrested transformation.
Not that she was a slouch to begin with, but her last two books have been very emotionally engaging for me. I've really enjoyed them. Mencheres is next in the Summer and I can't wait. For those who haven't tried Jeaniene Frost, I feel pretty confident recommending her books. Oct 10, Maria Dimitrova rated it really liked it Shelves: I mean, sure you could, but you'll have a hard time figuring out what is going on.
Also if you're reading the main series you can't simply skip this one as some of the events from this book impact the overall story. I loved the plot of this book! The introduction of demons to this world made it even more fascinating. So it was plenty fun.
We got to explore a different part of the vampire world and to see both Spade and Ian in different light. Spade is an interesting character and I liked him a lot since the beginning. He has a very tragic backstory. And I felt so bad for him. So I was very happy when he hooked up with Denise in this book. What I didn't like was that there was more than a bit of relationship drama.
I hate, hate, hate the Big Misunderstanding trope! But compared to Destined for an Early Grave it was drama-free! I loved Denise and how she was portrayed. What happened to her in the previous books was extreme. And I liked that she didn't just shrugged it off! She was suffering from PTSD for most of the book and she had to fight with herself to be around Spade. She had a lot of baggage surrounding her actions around Randy's death and seeing how much this whole mess with the demon made her change and realize her own strength was quite inspiring.
Denise deserved a happy ending and the honor and duty oriented Spade was just the male for her. View all 17 comments. Oct 19, Arlene rated it liked it Recommended to Arlene by: Buddy read - Crystal. First Drop of Crimson is an entertaining spin-off to the Night Huntress series. 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. I do have to say that her final decision at the end to change plans on Spade, Cat, Bones and Ian and go off on her own to face Raum while the others were still fighting the battle was a huge letdown when it came to her decisioning.
Overall, I was entertained, and I enjoyed the extra Spade scenes this book had to offer, but Night Huntress will continue to be my preferred storyline.
View all 3 comments. Jan 25, Samantha rated it liked it Shelves: It's a standalone that focuses on Denise and Spade, who are two reoccurring side characters from the main series. After she witnesses the demon murder her cousin, he makes her a deal.
With Cat and Bones out of country, Denise enlists the assistance of the only other vampires she knows, Spade. The main reason for this is that Spade and Denise were pretty plain characters.
They had very little to make them standout when surrounded by memorable characters, like Ian and Mencheres. It got to the point where I was reading more to catch glimpses of the other characters than to find out what would happen to Denise or Spade.
All in all, First Drop of Crimson wasn't bad, just nothing really stood out about it. This works as a nice side story for fans of the series. However, I wouldn't recommend it to people who are looking to get into the Night Huntress books.
If you're contemplating starting the series, I would suggest to just take the plunge and begin with the first book, Halfway to the Grave. Jan 19, Anna rated it it was amazing Shelves: 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 wil It has been a year since Denise lost her husband by paranormal means. Plus there's definitely an attraction on both sides, and at the same time neither of them will admit it.
Spade refuses to fall in love with a human again and Denise wants nothing to do with the world of vampires. Stubborn creatures, but you gotta love them. I absolutely loved this book, a must read. First Drop of Crimson was a fun, enticing read. This story was refreshing, dark and passionate. Spade and Denise are magic, their chemistry jumps off the page. Jeaniene Frost is a master at pulling you into a story from page one, and that's exactly what you get with this book.
I love that Spade got his own book. I found him quite interesting in the Night Huntress series and was hoping we get to learn more about him. View all 6 comments. Jul 26, Stacie rated it really liked it. First we had Cat and Bones, now we have Denise and Spade!!! I love this world Jeaniene Frost has created. He's powerful, sexy, commanding, and he is a perfect gentleman except when he isn't ;. Denise is somewhat insecure and guilt ridden. But really she was very sweet, compassionate and loyal.
Both Spade and Denise have valid reasons for resisting their attraction to the other and it was an action packed, sometimes a little emotional joy ride reading their journey to their HEA. Love it! Can't wait for more in this world. Happy reading!! Who knew Spades could be so sweet and understanding. I believe we all saw the more 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 more hardened WOW!! It was great to see her become a more hardened yet loving character. Overall the book had great plot, chemistry and characters. Jeaniene keeps it good and classy as always!
Mar 23, Jaya rated it did not like it Shelves: It was really bad. I should have so judged the book by its cover. Much as i loved the previous books in this series, this was just absurd.
Still I will continue with the series Nov 17, Laurie Garrison rated it really liked it Shelves: 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. 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 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.
First Drop Of Crimson
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 in hot sex with a vampire, you have a great PNR book.

This is were their adventure starts trying to find a old relative, so no more relatives will die, this is not going to be easy to do, Spide discovers something about Denise that he has to hide and bargain with at the sometime just find the relative that's responsible for it all.

She'd hate herself if Paul got in an accident after going out drinking with her. Aside from her parents, he was the closest family she had left.
She took care of the check over Paul's objections and they went out into the parking lot. After that incident three months ago, Denise made sure to park in a well-lit area as close to the bar's entrance as possible.
As a further precaution, even though Paul walked with her, she kept her hand on the repellent spray dangling from her key chain.
She had two of those; one filled with pepper spray, the other with silver nitrate. Humans weren't the only ones who liked to attack at night.
Paul tried to scream, too, but an arm tight across his throat prevented him. The stranger's eyes seemed to burn as they looked from Denise to her cousin. Denise screamed as loud as she could, raising her pepper spray and sending a burst of liquid in the man's face. He didn't even blink, but Paul's eyes swelled shut as some of it hit him.
The man didn't even budge while Paul's face began to turn blue. She grabbed the silver nitrate next, unloading its contents in four frantic bursts. The man did blink at that, but in apparent surprise.
Then he laughed. How interesting. Panicked, she balled her fists and flung herself at him-only to fall to the ground a moment later on top of her cousin. Denise glanced up. The stranger was gone. A large German shepherd sat a few feet off, its mouth open in a doggy grin. It turned around and ran when a handful of people from the bar came over to them.
She placed her mouth over his, blowing hard-and began to choke as she tasted pepper spray. She pressed her fingers to Paul's throat. Almost a dozen people stood over her, but none of them seemed to be reaching for their cell phones. Don't do this! His mouth was slack, his chest motionless under her hands. But Denise continued to pound on his chest, cupping her hands around his mouth to blow into it without her lips coming into contact with more pepper spray. She didn't stop until the paramedics arrived, seemingly an eternity later.
When they pulled her off, Paul still wasn't breathing. Denise fought the urge to slap him. She didn't know how much more she could take.
She'd already had to call her family and tell them this unthinkable news, then grieved with them as they arrived at the hospital, then gave her report to the police. The one they seemed to have such trouble believing. Denise's temper snapped. Look, the guy choked my cousin; doesn't Paul have bruises around his neck? The medical examiner hasn't looked at him yet, but the paramedics didn't see any signs of strangulation.
They did say they found evidence of cardiac arrest,,," "He's only twenty-five years old! Ice slid up her spine. Paul had asked just hours ago, followed up with a statement she'd summarily dismissed. I think I'm being followed, too. Now Paul was dead-of an apparent heart attack.
Just like Amber and Aunt Rose. Denise knew she hadn't imagined the man who'd been immune to both pepper spray and silver nitrate. The one who'd disappeared in a blink-and the big dog that had come out of nowhere. Of course, she could relay none of this to the officer. He already looked at her like she was teetering on the crazy end of distraught. It hadn't escaped Denise's notice that when she'd been treated for pepper spray, her blood had also been taken, presumably to check her alcohol levels.
She'd already been asked multiple times how much she'd drunk before leaving the bar. It was clear nothing she said, even leaving out mention of the supernatural, would be taken seriously if the medical examiner ruled that Paul had died of a heart attack. Well, she knew people who'd believe her enough to investigate. A flash of relief crossed the officer's face. It only made Denise want to smack him more. I can arrange for a squad car to take you.
No need to have the taxi driver talk about how his latest fare had babbled on about a murder by a man who might have turned into a dog. If the police found out she'd said that, she could forget them following up on any leads she gave them, even if they did figure out this was a murder. On the third ring, however, an automated voice intoned that the number she'd dialed had been disconnected.
Denise hung up.
That's right, Cat had been moving from place to place because some crazy vampire was stalking her. She had obviously changed her number, too. Was Cat still overseas? How long had it been since Denise last spoke to her? Weeks, maybe. Next Denise tried the number she had for Bones, Cat's husband, but it, too, was disconnected. Denise dug around her house until she found an address book with the number for Cat's mother.
The number was from over a year ago, so no surprise when that was also out of service. Frustrated, Denise flung the address book on her couch.
She'd been avoiding contact with the undead world, but now when she needed someone plugged into it, she didn't have anyone's current number. There had to be someone she could reach.
Denise scrolled through the entries in her cell phone, looking for anyone who had connections to Cat. When she was almost at the end, one name leapt out at her. She'd saved Spade's number in her phone a few months ago, because he'd been the one to pick her up the last time she saw Cat. Denise hesitated. Spade's sculpted features, pale skin, and penetrating stare flashed in her mind. Put Spade in a Calvin Klein ad and women would be tempted to lick the page, but Denise's memory of Spade was irrevocably tied to blood.
Especially since the last time she'd seen him, he'd been splattered in it. She shoved that aside. Someone had murdered Paul, and Spade might be her only link to reaching Cat. Denise pressed "call," praying she didn't hear that chipper monotone telling her the number was no longer in service. Three rings, four,,, "Hallo? Cat's friend," she added, thinking of how many Denises a centuries-old vampire probably knew.
Maybe both cousins and my aunt, too. She waited, hearing nothing but her breathing during the pause on the other line. What if she'd hit the wrong number somehow? His voice flowed back immediately. Why don't you tell me what you believe you saw?
Then the next thing I saw, a big damn dog was standing where the man had been, but it ran off, and the police think my twenty-five-year-old cousin died of a heart attack instead of being strangled. Denise could almost picture Spade frowning as he listened. He scared her, but right now, she was more afraid of whatever had killed Paul.
