4 of 5 stars false
From the New York Times bestselling author of Bared to You...
Adrian Mitchell is a powerful angel leading an elite Special Ops unit of Seraphim. His task is to punish the Fallen-angels who have become vampires-and command a restless pack of indentured lycans. But Adrian has suffered his own punishment for becoming involved with mortals- losing the woman he loves again and again. Now, after nearly two hundred years, he has found her-Shadoe-her soul once more inhabiting a new body, with no memory of him. And this time, he won't let her go.


***This book was chosen by you for my tbr list challenge, thank you!***
I always love starting a new paranormal romance series. Turning that first page, I am always excited that I am going to find a new favourite, one that I can continue on with.
Sylvia Day has given me just that, one that is on par with some of my favourites.
A Touch of Crimson is the first book in the Renegade Angels series. We have Angels, Vampires and Lykens. The Vampires being fallen angels and the Lykens being a group in servitude to the Angels to help keep the vampires in check. That is all present and important information but the main story is of Adrian and his Shadoe, his soul mate, returned to him once more in the body of Lindsay. The battle between following your heart or following the rules is prevalent in this book as the consequences are there, in the form of the vampires, as a constant reminder to what may happen if you don't follow the rules.
The cast of characters in this book were brilliant. I loved Adrian, the leader of the Sentinel's, and I felt for him and struggled with him for all that he had lost in the past and what he stood to lose in the future.
Lindsay's character was very enjoyable, she was likeable, strong and just the perfect match for a bossy Angel. I especially loved the friendship she struck up with Elijah, the Lycan Alpha.
This book really had so many stories going in it, with the Vampires, Lycans and had me wondering sometimes, really who are the bad guys here?
All these back stories were necessary however, to build the world and at no point was I uninterested or bored. I have heard from a few that this book had a slow start, but I did not feel that way at all. I was engaged all the way through and now I am eagerly awaiting reading the next in the series.
Great start to what will be another brilliant paranormal romance world.
