Series: Night Huntress
Date Published: October 30th 2007
Description: Flirting with the Grave...
Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father - the one responsible for ruining her mother's life. Then she's captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unholy partnership.
In exchange for finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She's amazed she doesn't end up as his dinner - are there actually good vampires? Pretty soon Bones will have her convinced that being half-dead doesn't have to be all bad. But before she can enjoy her newfound status as kick-ass demon hunter, Cat and Bones are pursued by a group of killers. Now Cat will have to choose a side . . . and Bones is turning out to be as tempting as any man with a heartbeat.

Review: ** spoiler alert ** omg I loved this book,it was well worth the read,there was so many funny bits in this book, it had me giggleing like a school girl but having said that i thought it was all so very sexy and exciting as well.Im so glad i took the time to read it,for any one who hasnt read it id def tell them to pick it up and give it a try.
Catherine Crawfield AKA cat....half human half vamp...she is stronger then normal people because of her vampire side but doesn't have to survive by drinking blood....she is strong and funny and very sarcastic, which i love about her, I think the way she falls for bones is cute. but i think she should of stud up to her mother a long time before she did and told her about bones then they wouldn't of ended up in the mess they did..I thought it was funny when cat spent all her money and didn't get bones anything and she tried to pass off the massarger has his gift, you guys need to read it to see why it was so funny..
Bones aka Crispin now what can i say about him apart from he is HOT and really funny..he is all so very strong and has a soft side hiding in there.....the one bad thing iv got to say about bones is the way he talks,HELLO British people don't talk like this and it makes me mad that the people who write these books make British people sound like they were born with a pole stuck up there ass, or born with a sliver spoon in there mouth, i mean hello we are not like that...well most arnt any way....
OK rant over, back to the book... Bone's friend Charles aka spade...now what id like to know is are we gonna see more of him because he was a total hottie..and i thought when cat all most took him out was so funny....again i acted like a total girl and giggled....
the other thing about this book i didn't like was the ending, it was left to open, yes i know the next book pics up where this one left off but i think cat and bones should of had more time together..and she shouldn't of made the stupid mistake of leaving him behind.....
but over all the book was well worth the read, i really enjoyed it
RATING OF 5 STARS
