I’m very excited to announce that FIRST DROP OF CRIMSON, book one in the Night Huntress World novels, is now available. As many of you know, this story features Cat and Bones’s closest friends, Spade and Denise, as the main characters. Here is the description from the back of the book:
From the New York Times bestselling author of the Night Huntress series comes a breathtaking new journey to the dark side of desire…
The night is not safe for mortals. Denise MacGregor knows all too well what lurks in the shadows – her best friend is half-vampire Cat Crawfield – and she has already lost more than the average human could bear. But her family’s past is wrapped in secrets and shrouded in darkness – and a demon shapeshifter has marked Denise as prey. Now her survival depends on an immortal who craves a taste of her.
He is Spade, a powerful, mysterious vampire who has walked the earth for centuries and is now duty-bound to protect this endangered, alluring human – even if it means destroying his own kind. Denise may arouse his deepest hungers, but Spade knows he must fight his urge to have her as they face the demon nightmare together…
Because once the first drop of crimson falls, they will both be lost.
FIRST DROP OF CRIMSON was an amazing story to write and I hope everyone enjoys it as much as I do. To read the first 20% and watch the book trailer, please go here.
Thank you so much, readers, for allowing me to share my characters and stories with you. Happy reading!
Great book! Really looking forward to the next one.
I really enjoyed Spade’s book. I love the characters Jeaniene has created… Thanks for a fun read! Looking forward to the next book.
I loved Spade’s book. I can’t wait for the next book.
I can’t wait for this book!
You should drop by New Orleans sometime, Jeaniene. I’d love to meet you, and it isn’t too far from me.
LOVED this book. I would love to see Ian in the future with a book just for him. I imagine he could sweep some wonderful insecure woman off of her feet.
I love the book!!!! everybook i read of yours is my new favorite can’t wait for more! I love spade as much as bones. both men are phenominal. thanks

I loved this book, I kind of wish I’d read it more slowly though! I am very excited for Mencheres’s story and agree with susan that a book for Ian would be excellent!

I know! I preordered from Amazon and it’s not here yet. I. Want. It. Now. *snicker* I’m afraid I will tackle the mail lady tomorrow in anticipation.
I thoroughly enjoyed it! Picked it up yesterday evening at the beginning of our lovely “little” snowstorm here in south central PA, and just finished it a few moments ago. I can not wait until the next one comes out! Thank you!! 🙂
Just finished it! I loved it! Although I do have to say…I know this book was suppose to be more romantic then the Cat and Bones books…I just didnt think it was. I loved and enjoyed every bit of it though! I cant wait to read the next spin off! Thanks for the great writing!!!
I just finished FDOC and I loved it. Although I have to agree with Mindy, Cat and Bones are more romantic. I can’t wait until the next spin off. I know the next spin off is with Mencheres and I’m very excited for that because he seems so sad. However I would like to see Ian fall in love and with Justina that would make a great book.
I loved Spades book! It was such a page turner that I could not put it down. I am a huge Cat & Bones fan but now I am a fan of Spades & Denise as well. It was wonderful. Thanks Jeaniene!
Dear Jeaniene, my cousin was absolutely amazed by FDoC. I think after I read your Cat&Bones book, I’ll just must read it, and Eternal kiss of Darkness, of course, when it comes out. I loved those, so I’m pretty sure I’ll love your other books as well.
So, now I have to wait for my mail to come because my cousin is sending me her copy, ’cause God only knows when will it be available in my country. So far, only two of your books are available her, but this sending process has so far proven okay but it would be much, much better if I could buy the books by myself instantly. Grrr..
I loved Spades POV, especially because its the first time you see from the perspective of a vampire (well, ok, male vampire =)) I enjoyed it a lot! When starting to read I thought Id miss Cat and her humor of seeing things but Denise is so special herself it didnt even bother me though. Great story!
Do you know if you come back to Cat&Bones story in the 7th novel or will there be another side character? I think too, Ian would be a lot of fun to read! haha.
regards, keep writing,
Thank you for writing such amazing books. I just finished FDOC and loved it. I am really looking forward to your next book, just wish I did not have to wait until July (even though I know it will be worth it)!
Awesome book. I knew i would love Spade when I read this, and I do. But i must admit I love Ian. He is just SO funny. Id want him as my vampire :]
I went through so much to get this book first day. I must have called a ton of book stores and in the end i traveled miles to get it. But it was worth it. Cant wait for the next one.
OMG! I couldnt put this book down…I was so excited about it and it did not disappoint!..and thank u for a small taste of Cat and Bones again..I miss them..but it was just a tease..cant wait to read Mencheres’ book..I can only imagine how great it will be..and then on to Cat and Bones! thanks so much!
Joan J says
LOVE it!! I just finished (took me 2 days (All of Cat and Bones took me a week!! Couldn’t put it down…lol) I can’t wait for the next and maybe a book on “Ian”… He’s devious but there’s something to be said for bad boys 🙂 Thanks Jeaniene!! Hurry up with the next. I pre-ordered Mencheres’ book yaaayy!!
i just have to write it down….
I’m from Germany and i’ve never read a book in english.
But when i finished “halfway to the grave” in german, i couldn’t wait for the others to come out in the german language, so there was no way i could wait for them, i ordered them all in english by amazon. Those were the first books i’ve ever read in english and i wasn’t sure that i would get it all, but i did. Cat an Bones made me crave for so much more, and here i am, read Spade and Denis and it was amazing, loved every single page. I think also, that Ian would make a great book by himself, but i am more curious about Vlad. He was most in the backround, but i think he shouldn’t stand there by long. I loved your books. Thank you very very much.
Thanks so much for all the awesome comments, guys!

I loved this book. I tried to put it down to get some sleep and couldn’t. The story is wonderful. I have wanted o get these two together since the zombies attacked.
I am a huge fan of your Cat and Bones series! When I saw the new book in the store I couldn’t wait to get home to read it! It was amazing! I was up all night reading it because I could not put it down! I love that we finally were able to get more than a glimpse into Spades life.
I am dying to read the next book in both series! 🙂
Lisa Schurek says
Wonderful story! I always loved Spade and wondered about him. Very suspenseful and I like how we were able to see what happens with them at the end of the story instead of stopping right when the problem is resolved. I also love that Bones, Cat , Ian and the others stay in the story. I’m very attached to your characters and any chance to visit with them again is very special! Can’t wait for your next book! Thanks!
Jeanine, I just have to say that I absolutely LOVED this book! I also LOVE Cat & Bones and was SO glad they were in this book! Can’t wait for your next one! I am so sucked in to these characters and both Series!
I loved the series and this spin off. Your book are always so action packed and it just makes one read it non stop. congratulations on your success and looking forward to the next ones.
BTW, am really loving the guy on the cover of this book. He’s smoldering!!! And the girl is also very beautiful. Any trivia or info these guys? Do you get to meet them personally and involved choosing them? Just curious.
