Overview

When a sexy half demon asks Conor McCabe for protection, he can't say no and he doesn't understand why. He hates demons. He doesn't want to help her. He doesn't want to want her, but every minute he spends with her strengthens his need to keep her safe—and intensifies the desire burning between them.

Mika Noguchi sought out Conor to steal the key that can free all demons imprisoned in Orcus. She quickly regrets her mission—Conor is her destined mate and he'll view her theft as betrayal—but she gave her word to the council and the penalty for breaking it is severe.

Other demons are loose in Crimson City, however, and they have their own plans. They're not about to let anyone stand in the way. Not Conor. Not Mika. They'll do anything it takes to advance their agendas—even kill.

Editorial Reviews

Jill Smith
This adventurous thriller is searing hot and filled with passion, treachery and danger. It's paranormal adventure at its ultimate!
Shannon Johnson
If you liked the first two books you will love the spin Patti O'Shea puts on this paranormal keeper. It's exciting, fun, dangerous, and sexy! Two strong characters dominate the scene and their romance is as hot as it gets.

Action packed, scary, romantic and laugh-out-loud funny, THROUGH A CRIMSON VEIL makes for a book that is hard to put down.
Beverly Forehand
Bright, ironic, and utterly sultry, THROUGH A CRIMSON VEIL is the perfect treat for any paranormal romance fan. Mika and Conor are intriguing and full of depth. Their romance is fraught with peril and steam and the action is frankly non-stop.
Sinclair Reid
As far as heroes and heroines go, Mika and Conor are exceptional ones and draw readers in the minute they appear on the page. The sexual tension between them adds an air of excitement to the danger they are both in and is totally explosive. Danger is around every corner...and passion comes alive in Patti O'Shea's THROUGH A CRIMSON VEIL.
Tanzey Cutter
Vivid, spellbinding and impossible to put down. Her [Patti O'Shea's] character development is first-rate and believable, her dialogue is crisp and snappy, and her narrative is vivid and spellbinding.

Wow, this book blew my mind. I'd read another one by Patti O'shea that I LOVED. And upon reading the description about this book, I knew I had to have it. And I'm glad I got it. This book was just outstanding. The part where Conor asked Mika to marry him. I just broke out crying. Great job, Patti O'shea. I recommend this book to whomever love romance, mystery and action. And a bit of sci-fi.

I totally loved this book! read it in 4 hrs and could not put it down for nothing. Mika was hilarious. she was one of the best characters i've ever read about and the way she got Conor to open up with humor and teasing was way cute! Conor was one mighty fine hottie also! i cried when he thought that he lost Mika forever and laughed when he made his own dry humor jokes. great book and highly recommended! :)

I am so sad that Ms O'Shea is not writing more books in this series because she created characters that I cared about and wanted to see again. I'm not going to give a synopsis, that's already been done. All I am going to say is if Ms O'Shea keeps writing like she does in this book then she will be an autobuy for me. I was thoroughly impressed with the world that was created, which I know was a collaborative effort, but her part of this world I totally enjoyed. I also loved the characters and the sexual tension and yes, it was hot. I enjoy hot romances and she does not disappoint. I dare anyone to read this book and not thoroughly enjoy it. It's action adventure/sci-fi/romance. Not many authors can multi-task like that so successfully. I am hoping that this series is such a hit that they beg Ms O'Shea to write another story for it.

The veil keeps the demons from crossing from their world Orcus to Crimson City where humans, vampires, werewolves and other species live in a fragile peace. For a demon to penetrate the veil they must be summoned from the other side. Few can cross back and forth at will half-breed Mika Noguchi is one of those as a hybrid human-demon. Surprisingly she is even a rarer breed as she gets along nicely with her maternal and paternal families. The Orcus Council orders Mika to find a hybrid peer demon hunter Conor McCabe in Crimson City. He apparently possesses an ancient summoning spell that they want. She comes to him asking for his protection he reluctantly agrees but wonders what her real agenda is. When a demon tries to kill her, he saves her life. Other attempts on one or the other follow leading to the conclusion at least two groups want their respective target dead. --- THROUGH A CRIMSON VEIL is a fantastic paranormal romantic suspense thriller that never slows down from the moment that Conor wets Mika¿s panties with orange juice only fourteen hours after they meet until the final explosive climax. The story line is action-packed, but the two protagonists seem genuine and the audience will believe they are hybrids. Interestingly, Mika knows from the moment she meets Conor he is her soulmate, but leaves him in the dark because he is not accepting of the obvious. Patti O¿Shea spins a jewel of a Crimson City tale. --- Harriet Klausner
