Four years into her job with the government agency dealing
with paranormal law enforcement, Cat has a reputation for
being a fearless killer of vampires. Fueled by the
knowledge of her half-vampire heritage, each kill brings
her closer to the man she's been seeking for most of her
life -- her father. With her identity changed to protect
those who know her, she's known as the Red Reaper. When her
latest assignment brings her to the sire of her one-time
love Bones, she allows the man to escape, a momentary
weakness she may live to regret.
Someone is out to get Cat and leaves a gruesome calling
card to draw her out. Targeted for assassination, it's
tough to know who she can trust. Backed by her trusted
coworkers, Cat returns to her old stomping grounds and runs
into Bones, who's ready to do anything to protect the woman
he loves. When a war between different lines of vampires is
threatened, Cat and Bones must use their wits to come out
on top when up against old and new enemies.
ONE FOOT IN THE GRAVE by Jeaniene Frost is the
second in the Night Huntress series and a thoroughly
entertaining follow-up to HALFWAY TO THE GRAVE. Ms Frost's
undead world is fascinating, populated by unique and spooky
characters and led by one of the most entertainingly kick-
ass heroines in the paranormal genre. The plot is fast-
moving and the give-and-take between Cat and Bones is
reason alone to keep reading. Enjoy!
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.
