I loved the backstory to introduce the main characters, it captured me from the beginning. Really intriguing story. I didn't want it to end and was thrilled to an excerpt for the next book in the series. Excellent read!

Another fantastic book by Evangeline Anderson! Addison and Corbin are an explosive couple. Both passionate, protective, and fierce in their own way. The story grabbed me from the start and has me trapped. I love this new world and all the amazing things being revealed with in it. The other characters are very intriguing. They each added their own spark to the storyline. I can't wait to find out what happens in the next book with Victor and Taylor.

The lead character is annoying. There seems to be some character formula that says, "Bratty, smart-aleck, insecure, mouthy" woman makes a strong heroine. THe book has great potential, but her character could stand to just "shut the hell up". I

Crimson Debt is the first book in Ms. Anderson’s Born to Darkness Series.   Ms. Anderson has written vampire stories before (e.g., The Covenant, Blind Date with a vampire, Kristen's Addiction), but in “Crimson Debt” she has created a fresh new spin on her previous vampire mythos by; expanding the creatures within (such as witches, werewolves (oh my!)), describing a mysterious and interesting vampire hierarchy, and Auditors (humans immune to vampire glamour), who protect humans in human/vampire interactions and enforce these laws if they are broken.   The use of first-person point of view (POV) takes some getting used to, but it does help the reader connect more quickly with the character, so I certainly felt Addison’s conflicted relationship about vampires, however I often felt that she protested a little too much.  When I asked myself why I felt this way, it was because I needed to know more about her job as an auditor.  Yes, there were lots of conflict, but without knowing why that conflict is there, there’s no tension.  What would have helped me agree with her protestations would have been another description of human/vampire crime scene.  There are a lot of examples of Anderson telling us why Addison is conflicted about Corbin, but what helped me connect and understand her mistrust was the Crimson Debt crime scene towards the end of the novel.  I thought if we had another on-the-job scene with Addison in the beginning describing a horrific human/vampire or a ‘typical’ day for her, I would have understood and believed this mistrust she had for Corbin and it would have made her trust, love, and submission (at the end of the novel) more satisfying as a reader.   The one thing I didn’t like about the single POV was that we never ‘heard’ from Corbin.  I know I’m weird, but I like knowing what’s in a guy’s head and I thought if we had Corbin’s POV it would have created more depth to his character’s motivation and increased the tension and conflict between him and the other characters (what did he really think of Roderick or Celeste?).  Corbin seemed like the only vampire who wasn’t a psychopath (besides Taylor) and this was a result of his turning (‘born into darkness’ – I like this phrase) and his past.  Anderson has experience switching first-person POV with the H/H (e.g., Dirty Girl and Hunger Moon Rising) and I wondered why she didn’t do it for this book?   I would recommend this book to Anderson fans that enjoyed the “Brides of the Kindred” series and her vampire books.  Because this is the first book, some time was spent describing the H/H for Book 2 and secondary characters to develop this new world.  EA also provided some much anticipated sneak-peaks into Book 2 in her Born to Darkness series and (much anticipated and patiently waiting for) Book 8 of her Brides of the Kindred.

I've read Evangeline Anderson before and love her other series Brides Of Kindred Series and Alien Mate Index Series. I was in need of a new series to read so I checked Evangeline's website and read all the overviews of each of the 3 books in her Born To Darkness Series and I knew I wanted to read it so I bought the first book Crimson Debt. I was not disappointed. Evangeline has a way with creating these world's and the Alpha Males you fall for there everything you want them to be strong, powerful, and when it comes to there woman loving, protective, and nothing they won't do for them. The smexy moments that steam up your nook are hot.  I don't want to give anything away in the book, I hate when reviews sum up the whole book for you so what I will say is read the overview if you love Vampires and Werewolves the Paranormal this is a book/seriesyou will want to read. There was action, smexy moments, charecters that are likable and you want to read more about I gave it 5 stars because its something I would go back and reread. I can't wait to start Scarlet Heat next!

I loved these characters and look forward to more in this series. Sex scenes were hotter than some might like, but the rest of the story was really good. Liked the world author created.

One HAS TO give one star so that one can write a review. If one likes to read about sex then this is a book for them, other than that; there's nothing to this book. In this era of self publishing there's a lot to choose from and time and time again you come across prolific but mediocre authors. This book reads like it was written by a juvenile with limited dictation. I would not waste my time with anything written by this author, even if it were free.
