Publisher's Summary

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.

Critic Reviews

“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)

Reunited and it feels so good......

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, but they would have to start with the first book. This is one of my favorite series!

Have you listened to any of Tavia Gilbert’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I listened to the first Night Huntress book that Tavia Gilbert performed. She is amazing! She is exactly what I expected Cat to sound like. As stated in my review of the first book, it took a while for her performance of Bones to grow on me, but now I wouldn't have it any other way.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Always! Especially with Tavia Gilbert as the narrator.

Better than the 1st book!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. Provided that you like action and saucey books like 50 Shades of Grey. I like these type more because the have a funny side as well.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Bones by far. He has a straight forward type of personality and how he gives it to Kat's mother. I laugh so hard I had tears. Sometimes you wish you could do that type of talk to your in-laws.

Which character – as performed by Tavia Gilbert – was your favorite?

I would have to say Menkaries. Sorry for the spelling if wrong (audio not ebook) like really like the voices. Every character has their own sound and she keeps to them for each book. Bones sounds like bones ect on each book. I hope the author keeps with this and just keeps them coming. I can't wait for a new one. <br/>

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

My favorite is the wedding ambush. Nothing like ditching your exboyfriend and he shows up at your friends wedding. Laugh my butt off!!

Any additional comments?

Read them in order. I love them all and I am telling you that if you like Laurell K Hamilton or Kresley Cole you will love this author and series.

Pretty Good

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes. It's interesting and certainly entertaining but the story was a little weaker than her others.

Any additional comments?

Entertaining enough for a book in a well developed series but not the greatest/strongest story. Enough to keep someone hooked on the characters going. Well read though I have always hated her characterisation of the 'Bones' character. It's just such an over the top East End accent (Cockney) and it's not authentic at all and I find that a bit annoying. Other than that it's fine though not likely to win any awards.

Catnip for the brave

This second installment doesn’t fail but actually exceeds expectations. Just when book one left you with “I can’t believe it” book 2 starts you off with come on I know something is going to happen. And of course it does with Bones coming back full force back into Cats life. And this he is playing for keeps. Cat has many decisions to make but Bones is definitely her man. Hot sexy scenes take up into intense relationship that is the core of Cat and Bones. This series is full of adventure and plenty of action that has wanting to know what is next. Yes yes yes use a credit or buy it is worth it.

Cat and Bones back together...Yea!

What made the experience of listening to One Foot in the Grave the most enjoyable?

The narration....fabulous. When I can picture the characters in my mind while listening...that's a great narrator!

What other book might you compare One Foot in the Grave to and why?

Well you have an otherworldly character with mystery and intrigue...there's a lot out there but this is one of the very best!!!!

Have you listened to any of Tavia Gilbert’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This series would not be the same without her. I love her Bones voice...it makes him who he is.....

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

In the parking lot when Cat and Bones first "reunite????" Tavia makes Cat sound so wonderfully happy and excited, I can't get her words out of my mind.

Any additional comments?

It's a series, book 1 was awesome and the reviews for the rest of the series are just as great, I will be following Cat and Bones as long as the author takes me.

Good Book, great performance

Where does One Foot in the Grave rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This series is one of my two top favorite Audiobook series.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Bones, he's determined, hardheaded and smart. He doesn't beg at her feet, but baits her into telling him what she wants and he doesn't want anything that she doesn't, even for himself.

Which scene was your favorite?

The surprise one I can't tell you about because it would be a spoiler. Anyone who listens will know when they get to it!

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes!!

Any additional comments?

This was a great book. It lost a star for the story because it started leaning toward common Vampire genre fantastic things at one point. Hopefully that trend won't continue in the series.

Absolutely loved this book

What made the experience of listening to One Foot in the Grave the most enjoyable?

Steamy romance, a female hero that was not helpless. Great story line. Leaves me wanting more.

What other book might you compare One Foot in the Grave to and why?

Maybe to some of Jacqueline Franks books. Underworld creatures with humans and the sex.

What does Tavia Gilbert bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Perfection!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laugh and cry, yes. And hold my breath listening to some of the very intense steamy parts. Very well written.

Any additional comments?

I've listened every book I can find of the Night Huntress, Night Huntress World and Prince of Darkness series all by Ms. Jeaniene Frost and absolutely love them all. Very sad the I have to wait now for more.

Don't fret Love...

If you could sum up One Foot in the Grave in three words, what would they be?

officially addicting story

What was one of the most memorable moments of One Foot in the Grave?

I'd like to say when they got really intimate was above and beyond my personal imagination. I have to say this book is very well written, out most entertaining.

Have you listened to any of Tavia Gilbert’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to Halfway to the Grave and I'm about to listen to the next series of this book. I can't wait! I just wanted to share how great this book is and how well performed. In the beginning with Bones vocal usage is I feel an acquired taste, I felt it was off in the beginning but eventually really got use to it.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I always look forward and anticipate in continuing listening to it.

it's all about the witty banter

This paranormal romance series has many of the typical cliches (British snarky male lead - check, redheaded innocent girl that has special powers - check, unlikely partnership - check, training montage - check, steamy but awkward sex scenes - check), yet it is more entertaining thatn it has a real right to be. Guilty pleasure for sure! Love love love Bones! Interesting take on the vampire theme, and nice explanation of the heroine's unique birthright and powers.
