Dante, a Breed vampire warrior, is gravely injured one night after discovering a disturbing new addition to the war against the Rogues, vampires that have given over to bloodlust and kill without restraint. He finds his way to the office of veterinary doctor Tess Culver, where he thinks he's found the perfect solution to his blood loss in the beautiful woman. Intending to only take what he needs and see her mind wiped of the incident, Dante's plans go horribly wrong afterwards, when he learns a horrifying fact about the good doctor. He wishes after that he'd never taken her blood, but once he has, he can't wipe her sweet taste from his mind. Driven by more than just Tess, Dante's visions of the future soon lead him to believe she is part of his destiny, whether he wants her to be or not. In turn, Dante's embrace awakens in Tess desires she never knew she possessed and special, secret talents of her own begin to make sense after the strange warrior's appearance in her life. As she becomes further involved with the mysterious man, she soon find herself in the middle of a war, and a passion she cannot resist.
Kiss of Crimson was the "start" to this series that I was waiting for. Characters--true, heartfelt characters--shine through in this one and that was the glue I was looking for. I clearly read a good, unique plot in Kiss of Midnight and saw that carried through very well in this one.Read more ›
Talking of that character, in this book 2 characters are introduced that frankly made me roll my eyes all the time. Chase and Elise are such badly written characters I felt like striking myself for reading all their BS. Seriously, they are so insipid it's nauseating.
Sorry, I have nothing good to say about this book. I hoped it would get better from the first one, I was just plain wrong.

After a brutal attack that leaves him close to death, Dante, a Breed warrior, must bite Tess, a vetrinarian, in order to stay alive. Only afterwards, does he realize that she is a Breedmate and he has performed half of a bonding ritual that will tie them together for eternity. As Dante and Tess struggle to come to terms with the electric connection that pulls and ties them together, the Breed Warriors must battle a new threat - a drug, called Crimson, that turns vampires rouge.
Fans of JD Ward will enjoy this series. This book can be read on its own, but reading book 1 first will make this all the more enjoyable. Book 3, which is being written, features Tegan (and this book includes a sneak peak at a few pages). Can't wait!
Tess Culver has her own secrets she must keep hidden. While working late yet again, Tess rushes to the aid of a bloody stranger. As a human, she has no idea that this striking man is actually a Breed warrior. Furiously working on his physical damages, Tess feels an all-encompassing arousal like nothing she has ever experienced before. When she awakens to police swarming her clinic, Tess is dismayed that she fell asleep at her desk. Worse, she can't remember even walking into her office.
Dante is shocked to realize that he has unwittingly taken the first to step to bind Tess to him. While she bears the birthmark of a Breedmate, Dante is afraid to grasp what is right in his reach - Tess and a lifetime of happiness. Tess, in turn, is just as scared. The closer they become, the harder it is for them to deny their feelings. When a hidden evil threatens Tess, Dante will stop at nothing to keep her safe, even if it means making her his for all time.
Let me just state how very excited I am about this new series! Lara Adrian has created a unique Breed warrior conclave. In KISS OF CRIMSON, I was treated to Dante's story and, having met him in KISS OF MIDNIGHT, I couldn't help but be intrigued by his raw and intense presence, not to mention his body and looks. His description alone is enough to make a nun sweat! Dante's ability to foresee events in his life shaped the man he became. His reluctant feelings for Tess, while at first not desired, quickly became the primary focus of this alpha fighter. His capitulation was magnificent to watch. On the flip side, Tess is just as hesitant to trust and with good reason. Their passion for each other is blazing hot. Combine that with the sexual tension and searing passion, and there were times I thought I was melting. Lucky for me, I have an automatic ice machine that helped me survive!
KISS OF CRIMSON is a strong follow-up to the first book of this series, KISS OF MIDNIGHT. I am thrilled to say that I'm completely hooked and clamoring for the third installment. In the meantime I'll content myself with rereads. But please write fast, Ms. Adrian! Your skillful characterization and thrilling storyline has me drumming my fingers waiting for the next book.
I can't wait to recommend KISS OF CRIMSON to my friends and fellow book lovers. Please note that KISS OF CRIMSON releases in June 2007. While Dante's story is the second book of Lara Adrian's extraordinary new series, it is not necessary to read book one, KISS OF MIDNIGHT. I do highly recommend it, however, as I'd hate to see readers miss any piece of such a delightful series.
Dr. Tess Culver has always been different. Hiding it so deep inside that she rarely thinks about it, Tess is happy helping animals and the owners who love them. When Dante appears in her life, Tess finds herself at a loss to explain the sudden and intense attraction. All she knows is that Dante makes her feel like no one else ever has.
Dante would love to do nothing more than claim Tess as his own, but there is a war on the streets of Boston. When the drug Crimson starts circulating between civilian vampires, it turns them into Rogues almost immediately. Against his wishes, Dante is paired up with a civilian named Sterling Chase. Together, Dante and Chase must work together to stop the manufacturing of the deadly drug. When it appears as though Tess is involved with the dealer of Crimson, Dante doesn't know what to think. All he does know is that he will protect his mate at all costs.
Lara Adrian is a thrilling new voice in the vampire romance genre. I highly recommend this series and can't wait until the next book is released.
Tess is a vet and a Breedmate who accidentally gives her blood to Dante, a vamp, while he is injured. There is a very dangerous drug out on the streets called Crimson which creates effects similar to meth or ecstasy in a normal human, but chemically induces Bloodlust and can make a Breed vampire turn Rogue (i.e. insane killer vamp). Turns out Tess' human former-chemist-now-animal-rescuer has unwittingly created this drug which he believes to be rather harmless. The Breed are tracking both Tess' boyfriend and his patron, trying to put an end to this drug which is not only destroying young Breed males, but is also giving the Breed some unwanted publicity.
The second book in the series, is Dante and Tess's story. The story line for these two is great. After fighting Rogues that leave him almost dead, he has to take blood from Tess in order to save his life. Then he finds out that she is a Breedmate. He wipes her memory of him but he can't forget about her. I especially like how Dante goes about trying to be with Tess after... the museum scene and his new acquisition named Harvard.
I would highly recommend this book and the previous one, Midnight Kiss for J R Ward fans or anyone who enjoys the vampire genre.
