One Foot In The Grave By Jeaniene Frost

One Foot in the Grave (Night Huntress #2)

Genre: Urban Fantasy


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.


On a mission for the FBI, Cat is sent to slay a vampire for killing humans, little does she know the vampire who is to be her victim is the very vamp who turned her past lover Bones, therefore she cannot go through with killing him. Writing on a wall and body parts are found in her old grandparents house the note reading, here kitty kitty. It leads Cat to a cave back in her own home town of Virginia, where her old jerky ex-boyfriend is being held captive by Lazarus and some vampires. After taking care of that mess and losing a team member, Dave, after trying to feed him blood to heal his wounds, everything goes downhill for Cat, things aren’t working out too well with Noah and she is still haunted by the memory of Bones and at her friend Denise’s wedding, she happens to bump into him again. The flame still burned between them and even though Cat denies to Bones that she still loves him, he knows better and still loves her;

“He closed his eyes for a second. Then they opened with a blaze of intensity. “I know you left me because you thought you had to protect me, that I couldn’t handle the obstacles before us. So you tried to get on with your life because you believed it would never work between us. But you see, I couldn’t get on with my life because I knew we could work. I’ve been looking for you every day since you left me, Kitten, and I’m sick of being without you. You’ve had your shot at things, now let me have mine.””

Of course Cat puts up a fuss, which irritated me, you love the man, and he loves you, stop running! But when she finally came around I was happy. Then someone puts a hit on Cat, trying to kill her while on a date with Bones, they need to find out whom. Bones teams up with the bureau, under the condition that he works for Cat, by his own choice. Cat finally gets to confront her “father” in this book and swears she will get her revenge on him and Dave also comes back from the dead. These books just get better and better and the steamy romp when Bones tied Cat’s arms, whew!
