“If you love juicy paranormal series, you'll enjoy the second book in the Breed series, Kiss of Crimson. Dante is haunted by visions of his death. When he's injured in a fight, he's rescued by Dr. Tess Culver, a vet with a healing touch. By one instance, she saved his life as he erased her memory. Later, they meet and slowly fall in love, not knowing he's a vampire. But there's other dangers out there, when they're still in the middle of a war with the Rogues. When Sterling Chase from the Darkhavens approaches them, they're up for a mission to stop the Crimson drugs affecting the youth and turning the Breeds. One, he later finds out is his nephew, Camden, while being torn for his feeling for his sister-in-law, Elise. Back to Dante, he's up against his rival, Ben Sullivan, who's the drug dealer, when the bitter truth of who he is comes to light, when it puts everyone in danger, and brings Tess and Dante together. What a great series!”Kristen H wrote this review Saturday, August 27, 2011. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No

“This second book in the Midnight Breed series delivers with Dante's story. The committed "bachelor" inadvertently feeds from a Breedmate, which means he has established a lifelong bond as a result. Tess, a veterinarian, has no idea she is a Breedmate, and is curiously drawn to the handsome but fiercesome Dante, not knowing he's a vampire and drank from her.
Meanwhile, Dante and the other warriors are desperately trying to find the source of a new drug, Crimson, that has the effect of immediately diseasing vampires with Bloodlust and turning them into Rogues. They determine a connection to Tess that further complicates Dante's relationship with her.
Dante and Tess have chemistry and their romance was tangled with the main plot of the story, making it even more compelling. The surprise villain was interesting as he tried to justify his behavior and struggled, though swiftly, with the moral issues surrounding his behavior.
The pursuit of the Crimson dealer and laboratory was exciting, with unexpected consequences throughout. The outcomes are not predictable.
This is my favorite of the two books in the series to date and I cannot wait to continue on to book three.”
