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)

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.

Outstanding!

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

It is in top 10 of the many audio books I have read.

Molly Harpers Jane Jameson series- series story line with the emotional content, funny, love, drama... balanced

What about Tavia Gilbert’s performance did you like?

Amazing. Best reader by far. She brings to life each character. Even the crying or anger is expressed.

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

Of course Bones and Kat's relationship from the begining to end.

Any additional comments?

I was reluctant to read another vampire series. I figured it has been over done but I was surprised the story line was brought to life by Ms. Gilberts acting abilities. Made the series standout from others.

Fun Series with A Strong, Kick-Ass Female!

This is a fun series, and I really love the heronie Kat - she is half human, half vampire. She is a strong female; she is out to kick evil vampire ass, and you just love her. She finds a great love interest in a very hot, sexy vampire named Bones. This is the first book in a series, and I can't wait to listen to the next book. This book was light, fun and interesting. The narrator, Tavia Gilbert is really good, even though I wish Bones' accent was not quite so low-class English. I think it takes a bit away from Bones' sexy character, but otherwise, the narrator has great timing and delivery, and she really makes the characters come alive!
