I can sum this book up in seven short words: sex, sex, sex,sex, and more sex. Yep, that's about it. I realise I can't reasonable complain about too much sex in an erotica and I'm not. But even by erotic standards the plot was pretty flimsy for a full length book. A lot was left unexplained, such as exactly what special skills Bastien had that was supposed to help him battle Zayan or what exactly vampire were. Somehow demons and Lucifer came into play and I never really figured out how.
So, you're doing the math in your head, aren't you? There wasn't a lot of plot, but the book is 300 pages long. Wow, there really must have been a lot of sex, you think. Yep, and surprisingly the author manages to put enough variety in to keep it from getting too stale. (I admit that by the end I was ready to finish, but I never quite reached the 'Oh, bloody hell, not another one' stage.) There is M/F sex, M/M sex, F/F sex, M/F/M sex, a M/M/F/M/M/M orgy, and even a little light bondage, S&M and breeding thrown it. Having said that, some of it just felt a little ridiculous--as if Ms. Page was trying desperately to create situations to add something more. The orgy especially felt this way. You see it coming a mile away, and then just watch it unfold with a mental eye roll and move on.
For all the forced variety there was also a certain innocence to the book. Maybe it's because it is a couple years old and the current publishing rage is questionable consensuality, forced seduction, heavy BDSM, dominate men and simpering submissive women. I really appreciated that every sex scene in this book is clearly consensual. Althea (what the hell kind of name is that BTW) may be a virgin when she meets Yannick, but she takes to sex with enthusiasm. I did begin to wonder just how much she could experience before she lost that same innocence that the twins love so much, but it's hardly a point worth thinking too deeply about.
I could have done without the sappy, happy ending. But, all-in-all for a full length erotic novel it wasn't too darned bad.
After an erotic encounter with Yannick Althea is left confused and yet drawn to him. When Bastien is resurrected, Althea's encounter with him is even more startling.
Bastien and Yannick are rivals, in life and in death. This time they're vying for Althea's affection. If they don't work together though they are all doomed.
Blood Red is a story loaded with sex. There is voyeurism, orgies, threesomes, gay sex and more. It's very hot. The loving between Althea, Yannick, and Bastien is spicy and romantic as well, but I felt that the frequency of sex between them or others tended to override the storyline at times and it happens in some rather inopportune moments. The plot in Blood Red is a good one though. It's exciting, and mysterious, and the ending is tender and romantic, which was a very nice surprise.

I normally read these books overnight or in a day, but this one literally dragged on for days and days.
