"Crimson City series - a Dark romance"

Ms. Jewel has lived up to her name and given us a crimson jewel - the fourth book in Crimson City series. This is a big success for her as she changes from writing Historical to Dark romance.

The fight continues for Crimson City and the "new players" in town are demons who have found a way between worlds. Officer Claudia Donovan is used to fighting. From her childhood in one of the worst parts of town, to bettering herself to raise her daughter in a better life, Claudia has not given up. Holly's father has now sent her home to grandma... who knew he was a demon? Claudia teams up with a "fang" to get her daughter back. Tiberiu Korzha is a vampire with a "rep" and as head of his family; he has been on both high society sheet and police mug sheets. Tiberiu's real mission is track down rouge vampires. The next rouge is in Orcus; on the demon side of the portal and the only way through is with Claudia.

I have enjoyed The Crimson series from the beginning. We have battles against and with vampires, weres, humans and now demons. However, if I was going to war in the dark world I would want more on my side than these uncertain allies. Here are my own questioning thoughts. Where are the good guys? I mean if there are demons, where are the angels and their boss? Dark romance should have balance. What do you think?

A Multi-Author Series

Long ago, the portal was sealed, and Los Angeles—now Crimson City—rid itself of demons for eternity. Or so Claudia Donovan believed. With the city's other paranormals more active than ever, and the treaty between humans, vampires and werewolves all but dissovled, she and the rest of the CCPD had enough to handle.

But now her daughter has been kidnapped and she's learned that demons still exist—and that they are plotting. She herself is caught in a dark ritual and must go to the creatures' shadowy world. To whom can she turn for help? The vampire Tiberiu Korzha whose eyes promise death but whose lips taste of eternity? Or does salvation lie with the powerful Lath, he who inspires lust beyond name?
