Adrian Mitchell is a powerful angel leading an elite Special Ops unit of Seraphim. His task is to punish the Fallen - angels who have become vampires - and command a restless pack of indentured lycans. But Adrian has suffered his own punishment for becoming involved with mortals - losing the woman he loves again and again. Now, after nearly 200 years, he has found her, Shadoe, her soul once more inhabiting a new body, with no memory of him. And this time he won't let her go.

Angels and Vampires and Lycans, oh my!

A Touch of Crimson catapults you headfirst into the action from the very first page. The start of the book sees the male protagonist, Adrian Mitchell, on a very bad day. His best friend, and second in charge, has been killed. A foaming-at-the-mouth vamp tried to kill him. He has to fly commercial.

All is not lost for the leader of the Special Ops group of Seraphim angels. On the day his world began to crumble, his reason for existence stumbled back into it.

Lindsay Gibson has always felt different. Losing her mother at a very tender age, she was irrevocably changed from witnessing the horrific murder. Stronger, faster, a sixth sense attuned to the weather ensures she will never have a normal life. A normal relationship. And when she meets Adrian at a crowded airport, that is more apparent than ever. 

The connection she feels when she first lays eyes on Adrian is intense and all-consuming. The feeling only increases the more time she spends with him. But as Lindsay battles with her lustful feelings towards Adrian, she soon realises there are bigger things to worry about. Like Adrian’s true calling in life, the discontentment of the guards sworn to protect Adrian and his people. Lindsay’s true father, who swears to return her to his side, once and for all.

A Touch of Crimson had everything I could hope for in a book. Fantastic characters, a hunk of a leading man (and bodyguard – Elijah deserves a very big swooooon), a sympathetic and headstrong leading lady and an awesome story line. I was glued to the pages of this book. It haunted my thoughts whenever it wasn’t in my hands and the world fell away when it was.

It isn’t all mush and romance. A Touch of Crimson has so much more substance than most paranormal romance novels. It is packed with action, killer one-liners and gripping cliff-hangers.

I look forward to more in the Renegade Angels series, but for now, I’m happy basking in the after-glow of Adrian
