Adrian Mitchell is a powerful angel. It is his job to lead the Seraphim on the hunt for the Fallen. Adrian is fierce in his purpose to rid the world of the Fallen vampires. He has only one weakness; his love for Shadoe the daughter of the Fallen’s leader Syre. Many moons ago Shadoe died but her soul is reborn over and over into the body of a mortal. It is forbidden for an Angel to be with a mortal but every time Shadoe is reborn she finds her way to Adrian and he loses her all over again. It has been over two hundred years since Adrian has been with his Shadoe but that is about to change.
Lindsay Gibson is headed to California to start her new job. She is startled by the feelings a perfect stranger evokes in her. Lindsay has no knowledge of her past life as Shadoe but she cannot deny the connection she feels towards Adrian. It doesn’t take much for him to convince her to go out with him but things escalate quickly as she prematurely reveals a secret of her own. She soon learns of a paranormal world filled with Angels, Demons, Vampires and Lycans. Lindsay becomes the center of a fight brewing between the Angels and Lycans. The target on her back comes not only from them but from the vampires as well. When Syre learns his daughter has been born again he will stop at nothing to get her back. Can Adrian protect the woman he loves and keep control of those he governs?
A Touch of Crimson is a remarkable, resplendent and rapturous love story with panache! Sylvia Day has started her Renegade Angel series off with a bang! A Touch of Crimson is set in a complex world filled with ingenious characters that are so easy to fall for. There are so many facets to the story that my head is spinning with the amazing possibilities that lie ahead for this stellar series. A war is building and Adrian and Lindsay are right in the middle of it. Adrian and Lindsay have sizzling chemistry; when they are together the pages light up with passion! What I really love about this story is that you can totally tell the difference between Lindsay and Shadoe. Just because Shadoe’s soul lies within Lindsay it doesn’t mean they are the same. It sounds weird but while reading A Touch of Crimson you will soon understand what I mean.
Another thing I love about this story is that the circumstances are constantly forcing these characters to question their motives and beliefs. Who truly determines what is wrong and right? What is worth fighting for? A Touch of Crimson set up an exquisite romance and laid the ground work for more fascinating stories to come. A Touch of Crimson’s nail-biting ending will leave you gasping and begging for more of Adrian and Lindsay. I can’t wait to find out what happens next in Ms. Day’s Renegade Angel world. A Touch of Crimson’s clever story and witty characters will have you racing through the pages!
