ONE FOOT IN THE GRAVE by Jeaniene Frost

Half-vampire Cat Crawfield is now Special Agent Cat Crawfield, woeking 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 together, side by side, to the reckless passion that consumed them. But having 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.

Well, this is the second book in the Night Huntress series. After reading the first (fantastic) book, I didn't think this series could get any better. Or more kick-ass. But I was wrong on both counts. The second book only takes the overall story to a whole new level of urban fantasy goodness.

Four years after Cat walked away from the very alluring Bones, she's become a Special Agent and is still using every trick that Bones taught her. Not only does she lead a trained team of very capable humans, but she's also started dating again. Well, until Bones steps back into the picture. I loved the way he ends up turning up in her life again. Absolutely loved it!

Add to the mix that someone is trying to kill her, and there's no way Cat can keep her distance from Bones. Especially not when there's vampire politics lurking in the shadows. Besides, they make an awesome couple. ;)

One Foot in the Grave is an awesome, and very well written book. It's got a bit of everything that makes this genre so addictive--the right combination of kick-ass action, mystery, emotion, intoxicating love, and a sexiness that literally drips off the page.

Yeah, if you're an urban fantasy fan, this is a series that you should totally check out.
You won't regret it!
