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.

“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)

This is a real fun read! The female character is strong and funny. There is plenty of action where she kicks butt! I felt the story was different enough that it really kept my interest. The sequel is really good too! Worth the credit!
I love this story. I am a fan of Charlaine Harris and listened to her compilations book. Jeaniene Frost was Featured. I fell in love with Cat & Bones, and wanted to listen to the beginning of their story. Jeaniene is now 1 of my favorites along with MaryJanice Davidson, Charlaine, J.R. Ward, and now I am beginning Lynsay Sands vampire series. I Love them all. Great read if you like vampire books.
I purchased this because it was on sale. I'd never heard of the series but...it was on sale and I needed something to listen to while cleaning the house. I finished it in a day. I was absolutely riveting. Romantic, suspenseful and emotionally charged. I'll be buying the other 3, sale or not!
I use audible to listen to books while I excercise, so I have to find books that make me want to hurry and listen to more so that I stay on track for excercising. I finished reading all of the Sookie Books, Author Charlaine Harris, and I was in search of another book/series that would make me excited to 'excercise.' I found Night Huntress, and it was perfect. All the things I love about vampire novels were in this book!!!!
Thoroughly enjoyable! Action, humor, romance and great characters. Bones was awesome. A fully developed character, not just arm candy. I loved that he had a cockney accent. Cat was very like-able, a refreshing change from the either over angsty or trying-way-to-hard-to-be-funny female leads found in so many novels of this genre. It was also soooo nice not to have nearly ubiquitous you're-not-telling-me-what-to-do-you-arrogant-man scene. Jeaniene Frost was clever enough to convey Bone's and Cat's feelings for each other in a dangerous situation without relying on that tired "plot device." Audible, please record the rest of this series!
Just when I had almost given up hope... I stumbled upon this writer. I was thoroughly impressed and enthralled by the two main characters. I just wish Audible had the other 3 Night Huntress Books for me to listen to because I don't want to ruin the story for myself by starting the Night Huntress World series (which Audible does have!) before I have finish this series. Thank you to the reviewer who divulged this piece of info that thankfully I read...
I thought the Narration of this book was done very well. If people were looking for an upper crust British accent for Bones then you did not read the books. He was born in a Brothel in slum London and worked as a Prostitute, the accent is perfect for his character, and it would sound off if he had the same tone as lets say his friend Spade who was a Barron before he died! I have all 5 books I can't wait till the next audio!
