Kiss of Crimson is the second book in Lara Adrian’s Midnight Breed series and follows on from Kiss of Midnight. This time Dante finds his Breedmate in the shape of veterinarian Tess Culver, as well as slaying plenty of Rogue vampires and stopping the spread of the deadly Crimson drug.
Like Kiss of Midnight, Kiss of Crimson is another fast paced page turner with plenty of exciting Rogue slaying action and heart stopping romance in just the right proportions. The sensuality in the sex scenes is hot and again in just the right proportion for the story. The characters are also well written, both multi-dimensional and complex - with additional new characters Elise and Chase providing an interesting sub-plot line.
The vampire mythology created by the author for this series - that the Breed are a separate living species originated from alien vampires cross bred with human women - works well and makes a welcome change from the majority of classic vampire mythology where the vampires are all (un)dead.
