One Foot in the Grave by Jeaniene Frost

5 Stars!!!!!

Book Decription (from author's website): 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 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.

My thoughts: This is the second book in the Night Huntress Series and is just as good as the first. This book starts four years after Halfway to the Grave. Cat is now working for the government and hasn’t seen Bones since she left him in Ohio. Bones has been looking for Cat and finally finds her. When he does the sparks fly and they soon realize that they never stop loving each other. Cat left Bones to protect him from the very government she is working for. Cat convinces her boss that she needs Bone’s help to figure out who is trying to kill her. There are some secondary characters introduce in this book that weren’t in the first and it makes the story more interesting. The main focus of the book is still Cat and Bones. You become so involved in this world Ms. Frost has created. It’s a great combination of urban fantasy and romance. I don’t want to give too much away, if you haven’t already picked up this series what are you waiting for!! The first three are already out and the fourth book is being released on July 28th. If you love KMM fever series, but would like a little more romance I can’t recommend the series enough.

Hi Randi,
I read the first in this series last year and though I am not an avid reader of the UF genre this one definitely made it to my shelves, just as the Fever series of KMM and the Marked series by SJ Day.

I really need to play catch up with this series, but alas, I have so many to catch up with. Your review reminded me once again that bk 2 needs to be read soon! Thanks Randi...
