Katherine Emerson was born to fulfill a dark prophecy centuries in the making, but she doesn't know it yet. However, one man does: a killer stalking the women of New York City. People think he's the next Son of Sam, but we know how he thinks and how he feels . . . and discover that he is driven by darker, much more dangerous desires than we can bear to imagine. He takes more than just his victims' lives, and each death brings him closer to the one woman he must possess at any cost.

Amid the escalating hysteria, Katherine is trying to unknot her tangled heart. Two different men have entered her previously uneventful world and turned it upside down. She finds herself involved in a complicated triangle . . . but how well does she really know either of them?

As the body count rises, Katherine is haunted by harrowing visions that force her to question her sanity. With this unforgettable novel—one that combines the literary and the supernatural, fantasy and horror, the past and the present—Katherine's moment of awakening is here. And her story is only just beginning.

"Intelligent, poetic, captivating and chilling, this is a book that begs to be read aloud; the mystery at the core of Love is Red is so gripping you will find yourself carrying the book around with you until you're done. Savor it, devour it, recommend it but don't lend it to your friends, because you will want to re-read it as soon as you're finished."
-Elizabeth Haynes, New York Times bestselling author of Into the Darkest Corner and Under A Silent Moon

"Love is Red is a tornado of a novel. Jaff twists through so many suspenseful places. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough, but I wanted to linger, too. This is seriously scary stuff, offered up in high style and with wild narrative invention."
-Laura Kasischke, nationally bestselling author of Mind of Winter and The Raising

"The kick of this ridiculously entertaining book is the haze of delirium it creates in the reader’s brain…. Jaff’s woozy supernatural saga is effectively scary and great fun to read."
-New York Times Book Review

"Mesmerizing, magical and wickedly sexy—Love is Red will keep you on the edge of your seat until the very last page."
