Break out the champagne, or blood if you prefer, as a sizable new talent has arrived! Take one half-human/half- vampire female with serious anger and parental issues, add in a sexy ancient vampire with his own agenda and you have the makings for a truly combustible series. With first-person narrative, Frost immediately establishes a world filled with undeniably gritty danger and tasty forbidden romance. Sign me up for the sequel!

Cat Crawford's relationship with her mother has always been strained, for her mother can't forget that Cat is the result of a rape by a vampire. To please her mother, Cat has been killing vampires, until the day she takes on the wrong one. Master vampire Bones is both intrigued and attracted to Cat, as she is quite unique. Since Bones is a vampire bounty hunter, he convinces Cat to join forces with him. Before long they learn of a scheme by a powerful vampire who is kidnapping and killing unattached young people. Bones has been stalking Hennessy for years, but with Cat's help they might finally end
it. (AVON, Nov., 384 pp., $6.99)

I never watched Buffy or

I never watched Buffy or charmed or any of those shows on TV so I wasn't too concerned after reading the bad reviews on Amazon.

I enjoyed Cat and Bones characters very much. I laughed myself to tears and found the characters to be very funny, charming and steamy. The jealousy had me rolling! The banter between Cat and Bones was my favorite part.

The story moved along very fast. I read the book in a day and quickly downloaded the next one. (I LOVE MY KINDLE) I was not happy with the way the book ended however I am looking forward to the next.
