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.

Each book in the Vampire Blood series is a standalone story that can be enjoyed out of order.

Top Pick! "There's no sophomore slump in this dark fairy tale adventure series! [...] Fans of Kelley Armstrong will find a similar blend of horror and legend, with a bonus romance." ~RT Book Reviews

5 stars "Everything about The Red Lily is divine. From the imaginative and seductive world full of the supernatural and the well-developed characters who set fire to your soul, to the fantastical imagery and depth to the very thorough plot and storyline, this book will have you roaring with allyour might and leaving you ravenous, wanting and needing. This, my dear fellow readers, is what you call storytelling at its best." ~Sylvia, Goodreads

5 stars "There's no question of not falling for this vampire and I fell head-over-heels completely and unashamedly in love with Nikolai--if ever there were an example of the undead having a heart, he is it." ~Nicola, Goodreads
5 stars "This book was like an all-you-can-read emotional buffet. No lie, I went from happiness to heart-break, excitement to dread, laughing to crying. It's sexy, it's sensual, dark and brutal and all the feels in-between, Juliette literally takes you on a journey with Sienna and Nikolai, and you cannot help but feel the whole gamut of emotions with them." ~Claire R, Goodreads
5 stars "Juliette Cross is quickly becoming one of the premier names in the paranormal/fantasy romance genre. Her books deliver a mega punch of action, adventure, and heart pounding romantic tensions that make her books simply un-put-downable." ~KT Book Reviews

5 stars "Juliette Cross has re-written the tale of Little Red Riding Hood and now it is all grownup, fiery hot and far more dangerous. The Red Lily is a tale of strength, determination and soul-deep passions that cannot be denied as two souls journey into the world of the unknown, and connect on a level that will leave readers weak in the knees!" ~Tome Tender
5 stars "One thing I can always count on from Juliette are smoldering interludes ripe with amazing chemistry and emotion, and THE RED LILY was no exception." ~Rhenna Morgan
5 stars " Hot, smexy alpha male vamps, evil batshit crazy vamps, strong willed women and a slew of secondary characters that you want to know more about even if you've only met them for a hot second (even the evil ones) and it's all set ina world that is so vibrant that it's easy to get lost in for a few hours and never want to leave." ~Kahea, Goodreads
5 stars "I was taken on an action-packed, emotional journey, with some gut wrenching moments that had me in tears, along with some sweet and heartfelt moments, and several surprises along the way... Add it all up and you have a mind-blowing,unforgettable, and extraordinary romantic adventure." ~Angel's Guilty Pleasures

Fairytale retelling of Little Red Riding Hood with Vampires. Um....yes please.


Little Red Riding Hood isn’t exactly my favorite fairytale but I seem to really enjoy re-tellings of it and Juliette Cross’s interpretation is no different.

Remember a few years ago and that angst-ridden vampire who everyone fell in love with? Well forget him, because now there's Nikolai.


Continuing the story from where The Black Lily left off, Juliette Cross takes her reader on a magical, heart-stopping and passionate rollercoaster ride as Nikolai ...more

A fun retelling of Little Red Riding Hood with vampires. How can that be bad?

This story is as classic as racist grandparents.

Red Riding Hood is named Sienna. She lives in the woods and was introduced in the last book. In other words, you need to read the first one to get this one. But, it is actuall ...more

By Cheryl June 15, 2017

Loved it! This is the sixth book that I have read by Juliette Cross, so I knew that The Red Lily would be another riveting, delicious and imaginative read that would have my heart pounding and my pulse racing. And I was right. Based very loosely on Little Red Riding Hood, it is set in a fantasy worl ...more

The Red Lily is no exception. Sienna is a warrior in red who has ...more

A little too sweet for me, most likely because I’m in a cranky mood and wanted more anger and less lovey sweetness. Tons of killing though, so there’s that. The heroine is just too nice, I like them snarky. She still brings her A game in the end, so I’m rating this high. ...more

4 'Red Witch' stars

I don't have much to say about this one. I definitely liked Sienna and Nikolai more than the couple from the first book but the story was kind of boring in comparing with the previous one. For 65% they don't do much else except traveling around and being hot for each other. Not th ...more

What an exciting follow up to Juliette Cross’ The Black Lily! I really didn’t expect to like this one as much as the first but in my opinion it superseded it in all areas.

Sienna has lived in the Silvane forest for years with the hart wolves of which she cares for as they care for her in return. Nic ...more

This is the second book in this romance series that mixes up fantasy with a decided paranormal edge but what makes it stand out is the way the author weaves fairy tales into it. The first book The Black Lily took inspiration from the classic Cinderella story whereas this instalment seems to channel ...more

By Mei October 04, 2017

Ahaha, I knew that this would be the story of Little Red Riding Hood as soon as I met Sienna in the previous book! How clever am I? LOL

But, as in the Black Lily this is a fairy tale with a twist! :-)

I must admit that I love the twists Juliette Cross gives to the old fairy tales!

'The Red Lily' by Juliette Cross is book Two in the "Vampire Blood" series. This is the story of Nikolai and Sienna.

Did someone say, "The Big Bad Wolf?"

Lordy, Nikolai had me the second he prowled onto the scene. I loved THE BLACK LILY, but Nik took that love and ratcheted it up about 1,000 degrees. All alpha and deliciously sexy, I found myself flipping the pages and ignoring reality until the very end. (Which ca ...more

I knew I’d be in for one hell of a ride when I started The Red Lily. I expected my heart to start racing with anticipation over what would happen next, but I didn’t expect to get all teary eyed...not once, but TWICE (which wasn’t cool since my makeup was all nice and ...more

I am breathless and utterly speechless. The remarkable author, Juliette Cross, has simply consumed me with so many feels and many varying emotions, while reading this incredible retelling of Red and the Big Bad Wolf.

The Red Lily was an amazing installment in the Vampire Blood series! This story was absolutely a swoony love story but it also contained a savagery that was not felt in the first book, The Black Lily.

Loved this story, I felt like a voyeur on a really long sexy date. Sienna took a while to grow on me, but Nikolai just love.

About the author

Juliette Cross

Juliette calls lush, moss-laden Louisiana home where the landscape curls into her imagination, creating mystical settings for her stories. She has a B.A. in creative writing from Louisiana State University, a M.Ed. in gifted education, and was privileged to study under the award-winning author Ernest J. Gaines in grad school. Her love of mythology, legends, and art serve as constant inspiration for her works. From the moment she read JANE EYRE as a teenager, she fell in love with the Gothic romance--brooding characters, mysterious settings, persevering heroines, and dark, sexy heroes. Even then, she not only longed to read more novels set in Gothic worlds, she wanted to create her own.
