Jeaniene Frost posted the cover art for her new book, First Drop of Crimson, on her blog today.  She confirms that Crimson is ‘sexier and a bit more romantic’ than the Night Huntress series (its a spin off).   I definitely get the romantic vibe from the cover, not to mention the description.  I’m thinking this will be more of a straight paranormal romance.  FIRST DROP OF CRIMSON And here’s the stepback: And here’s the back cover description: The night is not safe for mortals. Denise MacGregor knows all too well what lurks in the shadows – her best friend is… Read more »

In fact, I didn’t start book one until two weeks before Breaking Dawn was released.  I, stupidly, had a complete blind spot when it came… Read more »
