It should be the best time of half-vampire Cat Crawfield’s life. With her undead lover Bones at her side, she’s successfully protected mortals from the rogue undead. But though Cat’s worn disguise after disguise to keep her true identity a secret from the brazen bloodsuckers, her cover’s finally been blown, placing her in terrible danger.

As if that wasn’t enough, a woman from Bones’s past is determined to bury him once and for all. Caught in the crosshairs of a vengeful vamp, yet determined to help Bones stop a lethal magic from being unleashed, Cat’s about to learn the true meaning of bad blood. And the tricks she’s learned as a special agent won’t help her. She will need to fully embrace her vampire instincts in order to save herself—and Bones—from a fate worse than the grave.

 

1thoughtsThis book has more action than the others. It seems like every time they turn around someone is trying to kill them. With all the action it left no time for romance between Bones and Cat but with everything going on, you hardly miss it. First Cat is attacked my her father, then there is a suicide bombing at a vampire ceremony where Bones aligns himself with a master vampire, Mencheres, who has special powers, Bones makes a couple more vampires and then there are even more attempts on their lives. I don’t want to go into too many details because the surprises in this book are rather shocking.

Even though there wasn’t a lot of Cat and Bones time, there was some. But I think my favorite part was with Tate and Cat. They get pretty close and steamy on a mission. They have to act like a couple and when the vamps don’t believe them, they are forced to get rather close and intimate. I would be lying if I said I wasn’t rooting for Tate. I don’t know why but for some reason in this book he really stepped up for me and plays a big part in Cat’s life.

The story moves at a fast pace and with all the battles that are taking place there is a lot going on. Cat’s mother is around a lot more in this book since she is staying with them after their location is compromised. She seems to lightening up some and isn’t as uptight as the last books. She has become more comfortable with Rodney the ghoul and even Bone’s as well.

 

1favepartMencheres has a floor of his house where all of his feeder humans live. Some hope to become vamps, others have nowhere else to go and some are staying to pay their way through college. When Bones shows Cat the floor with all the humans on it, Juan pops out talking about how much he loves it there with all the beautiful women. Cat accuses Bones of turning him into an even bigger pig and Bones shrugs and says

“He’s just a bit overwhelmed with all the new senses. He’ll get used to them. Or get neutered if he forgets himself and even thinks of palming your arse, do you think I’m blind?”
He slapped at the hand wandering with feigned innocence near my hip.
“Control, amigo. Learn it.”

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 Bones awakens all her emotions, from the adrenaline rush 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 Cat tries to keep things professional between them, she’ll find that desire lasts forever…and Bones won’t let her get away again. Original.

 

1thoughtsThis second book takes place 4 years later. Cat is now the team leader of her special forces group who take down the undead. She has turned cynical and sour over the years but she will do anything for her team. After all these years she still misses Bones and cannot seem to forget about him. However after a turn of events Cat is reunited with Bones and it doesn’t take long for their relationship to rekindle. But Cat seems to have a price on her head and Bones is ready to do anything in order to keep Cat safe, which includes joining her team.

The first part of the book is about Cat and her new life. You see how much she has changed but no matter what she still holds onto the past. She is respected by her team of men and she would do anything to make sure they are safe. Then comes Bones who after years of searching for Cat, has finally found her and no matter what refuses to let her go again. So since Cat is so dead set on staying with her men since, let’s face it, without her half vampire strength and speed, they would be dead without her, Bone decides to join the special forces group. Once Bones is on board, he and Cat pick up where they left off. There of course are a couple of bumps along the way, like someone putting a bounty on Cat’s head, Bones’ ex-lovers popping up and a little problem with Cat’s vampire father making an appearance.

This one sets the stage for Cat and Bones to work with the team and create a stronger vampire fighting unit. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to reading more of Cat and Bones’ story.

 

1favequoteTate and Bones are ready to fight and Tate rubs it into Bones’ face that he has known Cat for 4 years now whereas Bones only knew her for 6 months.

“Quit it! Tate, enough of the taunts, and Bones, how old are you? Why don’t I just give you a pair of my panties to hang around your neck? Then whenever you feel jealous, you can wave them at whoever’s pissing you off.” -Cat

It’s not easy being a Vampire Angel.

No one knows that better than Trond Sigurdsson. In the centuries since he last went out drinking and wenching with his Viking buds, Trond has been a gladiator, a cowboy, a ditch digger . . . even a sheik. But now he’s the baddest of them all: a kick-ass Navy SEAL kicking butts of terrorist immortals with the help of his hotter-than-Hades female partner, police officer-turned-Special Forces operative Nicole Tasso–whom Trond dearly hopes to “partner” with very shortly in a whole different way.

The “cop” part of Nicole tells her there’s something bizarre about her gorgeous godlike teammate. But her “all-woman” side can’t help wondering how great it would be to have a virile Viking in her bed. Trond has secrets galore, but Nicole feels certain she can dig them out–and really get to the heart of this powerful, unnerving stranger whom she may be risking her soul to love.

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.
