Publisher's Summary

Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unlikely partnership.

In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner…are there actually good vampires? Pretty soon, Bones will have her convinced that being half-dead doesn't have to be all bad. But before she can enjoy her status as kick-ass demon hunter, Cat and Bones are pursued by a group of killers. Now Cat will have to choose a side...and Bones is turning out to be as tempting as any man with a heartbeat.

Jeaniene Frost lives with her husband and their very spoiled dog in Florida. Although not a vampire herself, she confesses to having pale skin, wearing a lot of black, and sleeping in late whenever possible. And while she can't see ghosts, she loves to walk through old cemeteries. Jeaniene also loves poetry and animals but fears children and hates to cook. She is currently at work on the next novel in her best-selling Night Huntress series.

What the Critics Say

“Take one half-human/half-vampire female with serious anger and parental issues, add in a sexy ancient vampire with his own agenda, and you have the makings for a truly combustible series. Sign me up for the sequel!” (Romantic Times)

    "Kind of silly, couldn't finish"

    So many wonderful review but this one didn't work for me. I found it to be silly, maybe one day I will go back to it but I really doubt it. I also couldn't take that ridiculous cockney accent anymore. Maybe it's a better read than listen?

    "Terrible narrator"

    I really tried to get over the narrator's terrible british accent for Bones, but unfortunately it has to be one of the worst accents I've heard in a while. It was bad to the point where it interfered with any enjoyment I could have had of the story.

    "Juvenile"

    I would have liked this book when I was a teenager or maybe in my twenties. I'm almost 50 now and found it very juvenile and comic book like. The author doesn't have a good command of the english language either... one person does not "pile into the car". You need at least a few people to "pile in". The word "pile" assumes more than one person. Things like that bother me.

    "hate the narrators voice"

    I'm sorry. I think I'll have to check this out in print. I have tried to listen to the story -- and it sounds like it could be god but I HATE the narrators voice, I just cannot listen to her; she sounds whiny and it make my neck hairs stand up. Sorry, the star is for the voice not the story.

    "I like it"

    I like the book/story and the audio recording of it. A lot of people hate the voice of Bones but I think it fits his personality perfectly. i don't like the voice of most other guys... and aside from a few they sound adolescent and screechy.
    the story is good... I say smut with, surprisingly, a good plot. I would like to own a hardcopy.

    "Other books are better"

    Love Cat and Bones! Great characters and I think Bone's voice is perfect. If you read his character, the voice fits him like a glove. All these suave vampires with great melodic voices and then there is Bones. Tough, working class English but completely unique. Really sets him apart from Spade, Ian and Vlad, etc.

    I started this book but only listened to parts of it because I knew the ending wasn't going to be happy. Yeah, I know they get back together in Book 2, but... Then I read the rest of the series, then the Night Huntress World series before coming back and finishing this one. Night Huntress and Night Huntress World is a series you need to read in order. The relationships built in the earlier books really set the stage for the later books.

    Overall I love this series and have listened to them multiple times. There aren't many I can say that about.

    "Major fan of Sookie looking for a new series"

    I was looking for a new series because I can almost quote my old favorites. I am a big fan of the Sookie Stackhouse series so much that I went on to read everything ever written by Charlaine Harris. I honestly had low expectations of the Night Huntress Series but I was VERY pleasantly surprised. I love the relationships between the characters, Cat and Bones. (Bones reminds me of Spike from the Buffy TV shows.) The narration is very good and I bought the next 3 audiobooks within 3 days. I hate to say it but Cat makes Sookie look like a whiner and the heat between Cat and Bones rivals anything on True Blood (the HBO series based on Sookie Stackhouse books.) You get invested in Cat as the protagonist and fall in love with Bones for his tenderness and absolute devotion. This series is not all hugs and kisses though. Cat and Bones can kick some serious butt.

    "A Great Read!"

    I accidentally came across this book by trolling the first book series sale. Glad I did. This book was not only a well weaved tale, but it was also hilarious in parts. And I do mean laugh out loud funny! I'm hooked. I'm ordering the second in the series and the rest of the books are on my Wish List. This book is well worth the credit or money you spend on it!
