What was he thinking?  Normally he would have just sent someone like her away. If he allowed himself to rationalize his decision for giving her this job, he would have kicked her out of his club faster than normal.  For reasons he cared not to delve into, he wanted this girl here and it had nothing to do with the fact that she would make a controllable employee. She had this charming innocence that surrounded her and it was compelling to a monster like him. 

Interviewing for a job in a vampire bar was insane.  She was barely old enough to drink, and the things that went on at Tears of Crimson terrified her,  but there was just something about this man. Her mind told her to run but the thought of leaving him, it physically made her heart ache.  Then she looked into those eyes....

She should have listened to her instincts.  He read her mind, the demon in him roared in pleasure.  She would be his!  The scent of her blood combined with the awakening desire of an innocent, there was no way he could refuse the beast.  Run little girl, the last remnants of his humanity wanted to scream. Forcing her out of his club that night had taken every ounce of restraint he had left.  

The way he had looked at her was almost primal.  Her heart raced as she drove back to her small apartment.  Longing filled her in a terrifying capacity, it was like nothing she'd known in her entire twenty-one years of life. Sleep didn't dim the need, instead he came to her in dreams showing her a passion that could only have been born from the demons of hell.

New Orleans at night hides secrets down every alley.  Welcome to Tears of Crimson, the New Orleans Vampire Bar.

Editorial Reviews


"Richard Godwin - Chin Wag at the Slaughterhouse"
Michelle Hughes writes highly evocative descriptive prose that straddles the paranormal and romantic traditions. 'Tears Of Crimson' is set in New Orleans and brings the French Quarter to life as the backdrop to her vampire story. It is a strange and compelling book and Cara dramatises her characters with detail and finesse. There is something haunted about her prose and she has an individual style. She is also one of the most active and effective role players on the internet.  

"Camille Burgin  New author brings LIFE into the Vampire genre" 
(Boutique Du Vampyre)
As an Alabama girl, now long time resident of New Orleans, this book embodies everything sexy and romantic about this city. Michelle takes you on a journey of the small town girl who hits the big city with a rude awakening, yet still remains charming and precious. She is truly a gift to the vampire genre! Out of all the books out there, THIS is a must read.

When twenty-one year old Cara Donovan moved from Alabama to the French Quarter in New Orleans, she had no idea that her life would change forever.  Walking into Tears of Crimson, the New Orleans Vampire Bar, she unveils a myth which has her questioning everything she once believed.  The Owner of the club, Rafe, fills her mind with passions first awakening, but could she give in to the temptation knowing it would cost her soul?

Eternal love and eternal damnation.. anything is possible during a night at Tears of Crimson.

From the Author

The Tears of Crimson series was written from dreams I've had since I was a young teenager. These dreams took me to other dimensions and explored the relationships of the characters you'll find hidden in the pages of my books.  It is said that the lure of the vampire is so strong you cannot resist the calling, Rafe has been my calling.  As you walk through the first book of the series you will get to know my dream self Cara Faith Donovan.  She has been with me all my life and I now welcome her into yours.
The second book in the series, Eternal Crimson will take you even deeper into this dream world and explore the histories of the vampire race and other supernatural creatures.  As long as the dreams continue I will write about their world.  Enjoy your walk into the endless nights of Tears of Crimson

It is a captivating story of innocence, vampires, romance about the thrilling journey of a young woman's destiny as she falls madly in love with her very masculine powerful employer. He introduces her to his dark world fill of secrets and mystery. This author has a gift to write in the first person narrative and pulls the reader in to a trance as they are reading each page about the unknown secretive world of vampires. It is pack with raw emotions and passions which leaves the reader breathless. It is a mixture of fantasy and romance with lustful scenes written in good taste, opening the reader's imagination to visualize the characters and join them on their journey as they struggle through their personal demons and come to accept their fates. In the author's words "The windows of this club had been painted black and words, Tears of Crimson were painted in huge blood red calligraphy letters. The building seemed to take up a quarter of the block and it was two stories high. The place has always given me the "weeping willies". "Eternal love and eternal damnation, anything is possible at a Night at Tears of Crimson" If you are into intrigue this is the book for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Enjoyable, sexy Vamp Romance January 25, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
LOVED the settings! New Orleans, a vampire bar, and a waterfall, need I say more? It was nice to have such focus on the two main characters and their developing relationship - quite refreshing actually to have secondary characters remain secondary. I truly enjoyed the plotline and how well it moved.

There were just a few grammatical errors but nothing to detract from the story. I quite look forward to the sequel....mmmmm....Rafe....mmmmm.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Vampire Love Story May 8, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This book was a great story from the first page on..........I almost feel guilty I got it for free. This is a wonderful story of love and lust with characters I actually enjoyed getting to know. That is rare these day and I appreciated that. This is the first in a series of books and I cant wait to get the second one to see where Rafe, Cara and Gabe end up!

5.0 out of 5 stars Creative Storyline and Intriguing plot development October 5, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed the setup of the background, the plot, the developing love. I wanted to slow down the falling in love part because it was such an emotional moment. The concept was original. I think the book builds and builds. The end is truly a cliffhanger and by that time, I had a complete sense of characters and the plot so I really wanted more.

The storyline flows easily. The worlds just keep moving. The point of view changes, but after I expected the change, I understood it better. I feel like the concepts came naturally to the author. I feel like she completely envisioned the world and the scenes. So refreshing! Eventually, I was there in the world, too....and once I crossed over, I was completely immersed. I think this is what a paranormal romance is all about.

If you want love and the developing romance, well-written sex scenes, a world of vampires and supernatural creativity, this is your book!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Night of Tears of Crimson December 14, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'd never read a vampire book before, so it was with a little trepidation that I began. Within the first few pages I was hooked! I found it very hard to put the book down. I fell in love with the characters, the setting, the story. The world created by the author is so real that I found myself drawn into it completely. Cara's innocence is in sharp contrast to her dark, mesmerising, powerful employer Rafe. The scenes of her seduction are beautifully done. I'm eagerly anticipating the next book in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing story February 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It pulls you in immediately, it draws you in fact with it's easy to read style. While I'm not all that big on Vampire love stories this one was recommended to me by a close friend. The writing style is really good and I'm really impressed with it. While I'm not very far into the book (6%) I can see myself there in story. It reminds me of some places I've been to long ago and far away in the South. This book is hard to put down to tell you the truth.

4.0 out of 5 stars Check it out! January 2, 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The story is a romance between human and vampire. The favorite kind of the vampire enthusiast.
A young girl trying to find her way finds herself in the path of a vampire who can't keep himself away from her, or vice versa. The emotion and love between the two characters happens quickly but pulls you in just as fast. You want the two to get together and you want it to last.
The action offers edge of your seat excitement. After the first few pages, I found myself intrigued to know what would happen next and how the book would end.
The quick point of view changes had me confused at times and grammatical problems caused me to re-read a few passages.
But I would still recommend this to the vampire story readers out there. This is Definitely an enjoyable visit to the Tears of Crimson.
