You can run from the grave, but you can't hide. Half-vampire Cat Crawfield is now Special Agent Cat Crawfield, working for the government to rid the world of the rogue undead. She's still using everything Bones, her sexy and dangerous ex, taught her. But when Cat is targeted for assassination, the only man who can help her is the vampire she left behind.
Being around him awakens all her emotions, from the adrenaline kick of slaying vamps side by side to the reckless passion that consumed them. But a price on her head—wanted: dead or half-alive—means her survival depends on teaming up with Bones. And no matter how hard she tries to keep things professional between them, she'll find that desire lasts forever and that Bones won't let her get away again.
Jeaniene Frost, New York Times and USA Today best-selling author, 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. She also loves poetry and animals, but fears children and hates to cook.
Love in vein: listen to another Night Huntress novel.

“Proving that her first book was no fluke, Frost ratchets up the action and stirs up the suspense big time in her second Night Huntress novel. That said, it's the sizzling passion of her star-crossed lovers that really makes this book a genuine keeper!” (Romantic Times)
“This series is only getting better…between the exciting action scenes and the rekindled romance between Cat and Bones, I did not put this one down until the last page.” (Coffee Time Romance)
This book has great balance. Great story...great narrator...great finish...Listners beware... The series is very addictive....I am looking forward to the next installment...
Each character bring such a wonderful flavor to the story line. If I had to pick just one character then it would be Bones. He is responsible for the growth and devolpment of the lead character.
She brought the characters to life. I am not sure if the series would be as successful without her voice.
There were many instances that I laughed out loud...I typically listen to a book while commuting to and from work. I found the series so entertaining until I completed the book in one listening session. My work suffered from my inability to push the pause botton.
I found this series by happenstance. I am thanking my audible angels for sending me the suggestion....
Reading is a must-have ESCAPE...
Tavia Gilbert maintains the characters so well. She is truly an outstanding narrator. Ironically, her interpretations of the characters and reading may actually be better than the first book if that's even possible.
Cat finally catches up with her father and ultimately begins to identify herself more with her vampire-side than her humanity.
No doubt Tavia's skill is like a fine wine... as one listens through this series, she improves with each edition of the story.
The blindfolding scene was certainly notable for those of us who enjoy the romance between Cat & Bones. However, the notion that Bones has the skill to fly seems to be a bit over the top at first. But, the skill is integrated throughout the remaining books in the series so the reader gets used to it.
The story seems a little slow to start, but many of the new characters are introduced in the first 5-6 chapters and play pivotal parts later on. I was still left thinking that maybe a bit of the first 8-9 chapters could've been eliminated. That said, those of us who loved "Halfway" will equally enjoy "One Foot..."
Yes, its a refreshing concept and interesting to see how it plays out. Not a lot new though, i'm on the 3rd book now, waiting for something original - some more depth or growth in the characters or an interesting twist would be great.
Anyone that can do a less annoying british accent for Bones's characer
Tavia Gilbert is one of the best narrators I have ever had the pleasure to listen to.
The whole book was great and every interaction between Bones & Kat is memorable.
No extreme moments but there are moments that make you laugh out loud
Its a good listen with a bit of a different twist on vampires and the like.
This is fun for some brainless vampire/sex action. Lots of sex! Not greatly developed characters but the action moves along nicely.
I find her voice a little annoying and her inflections over the top, but you get used to her.
Very fun and light series. Perfect for multitasking. I will most definitely listen to them more than ones. However, the narration of Bones, is absolutely killing me. I hope in the future they will rerecord the book, or edit parts to bring a man like Phil Gigante to narrate male characters. Well... at least I hope they would rerecord Bones' lines. The accent by Tavia, actualy did not bother me at all.
I've never read the print version, but I'm actually going to buy the print version becase the audio version was so good.
I really can't realte this book to any other I've read/listened to. I do read and listen to many of this genre and I'd have to say this series is refreshingly origional.
Emotion. I can read a book and feel emitional about whats happening, cry, laugh, ect. but she reads with such passion, that it makes the experience that much beter.
Excellent book. Great Story. Wish I could come up with something like this.
i'm a romance's lice! i crawl all over it... :D
I love every minutes of it... in fact i'm re-listening to it now. Wow!
I'M IN LOVE WITH BONES! HE'S SO DANGEROUSLY HOT!
I love the Cat and Bones series. They're a quick listen I can't wait for the next book in the series comes out. The narrator Tavia Gilbert does a great job with the different accents of the many characters in the books. At first, I wasn't sure if I liked her narration but after listening to the first several chapters I was hooked.
I'm not a prude and the sex scenes in this book made me blush. Whew! The story can be a little awkward and forced at times. Some of the dialogue and characters actions seem cartoonish. But aside from that, the book is a lot of fun I would say in large part due to the narrator, who is amazing. I also quite like Bones, who I suspect is based on Spike, from Buffy.
