MY NEW RELEASE REVIEW of
The Red Lily
by Juliette Cross
When Red falls for the Big Bad Wolf…
The Black Lily resistance needs a larger army if they are to defeat the vampire monarchy. In order to do so, former lieutenant and traitor to the vampire Crown, Nikolai must seek help from the red-hooded temptress he needs to avoid at all costs. The secret he carries could prove dangerous for her if she gets too close…even though keeping her close—very close—is the only thing on his mind.
Sienna will do anything for the Black Lily, and when Nikolai asks for her assistance to gain the trust of the commonwealth, it’s the last thing she wants to do. The thought of leaving her woods and her wolves behind is terrifying…not to mention the danger being with Nikolai poses.
This paranormal tale of love with the enemy is loosely based on Little Red Riding Hood. Like the first book in this series it is no fairytale but weaves the premise of the afore mentioned story throughout.
This and The Black Lily can easily be read as standalone titles as they are very loosely connected.
Former lieutenant and traitor to the vampire Crown, Nikolai must seek help from the red-hooded temptress Sienna who is an enemy he should be avoiding.
Sienna will do anything for the cause of the Black Lily, but should she trust this man (vampire) who is her enemy?
I gave this book 4 of 5 stars for the storyline and character development. It is a sensual story that rates 3.5 of 5 flames for heat.
My wish was granted and I received a complimentary digital copy from the publisher to read via NetGalley. This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I read and reviewed voluntarily.

A union born of duty. . .
Newly knighted Sir Ewan Gilroy needs a dowry and a wife, in that order. Though the widowed Lady Grace plans to enter a convent, squandering so much lush beauty–and such a fortune–would surely be its own sin. Grace will not be easily wooed, despite her family’s urging and Ewan’s famed charm. She challenges him as no woman ever dared, proving his equal in spirit and in passions. . .
Forged by desire. . .
To atone for her past, Grace vows to never remarry–least of all a brash and reckless warrior. Yet whether defending her honor or stoking desires she hardly knew she possessed, Ewan is a man beyond compare. And as their fragile trust is threatened by treachery, Grace must decide whether to reach for the happiness within her grasp–and fight for the love of her bold Highlander. . .

Diana Rutledge, Countess of Harrowby, was shocked by the unexpected death of her husband. But a trip to London to settle his affairs brings only more unpleasant surprises.
