“An outstanding, amazingly-written thrill ride!” ~ New York Times Bestselling Author Sherrilyn Kenyon
Crimson & Steam is part of the Crimson City paranormal romance series featuring delicious love stories and non-stop action in a city full of vampires, humans, werewolves and demons plus a whole host of hot heroes and bad-ass heroines. This book is about Jillian Cooper and the vampire Marius Dumont, two star-crossed lovers who have been tracking each other since the beginning of the series. Crimson & Steam also explains how the werewolves and vampires and mechs ended up in Los Angeles in the first place! An “origin” story, if you will. I hope you enjoy the read! xo, Liz

Her lips trembled. “I heard that….” She couldn’t finish the sentence.
“I have to marry her, Jillian. I can see nothing else that will accomplish so much good for so many.”
She pressed her face into his coat. “I … I didn’t bring you here to ask you not to marry her. I’ve given up on that.” She went still and silent, and then her face slowly turned up toward his. “Give us one night. I know you won’t give me more, and I won’t ask for more, I promise. But, Marius, give us one night before you say your vows. I feel your presence everywhere, all the time, and I know you feel mine even stronger. Just give us both one night before you cross the line forever. Before it’s truly impossible.”
