One Foot in the Grave: A Night Huntress Novelby Jeaniene Frost
Synopses & Reviews
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 him awakens all her emotions, from the adrenaline kick 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 she tries to keep things professional between them, she'll find that desire lasts forever . . . and that Bones won't let her get away again.
Cat Crawfield, a vampire slayer with an attitude, reluctantly teams up with vampire Crispin Bones Russell to track down a more menacing evil. Original.
About the Author
Jeaniene has always been drawn to the strange. As a child, she and her sisters would watch horror movies at every opportunity. At twelve, she began writing poetry. Shortly after that, she read her first romance novel, and it was love at first read! She knew she wanted to write her own novel someday, but figured she had plenty of time. That same “plenty of time” mentality also lingered past her teens and through her twenties, however. It wasn’t until Jeaniene was almost thirty that she realized she’d either have to start now—or resign herself to never doing it.
She chose the former. When she sat down to write her first novel, she knew it had to have her two favorite elements in it: urban fantasy and romance. Everyone has a favorite “what if they were real?” creature. For Jeaniene, it’s vampires. The first time she went to Sunday school, her minister pointed to the cross on the wall and asked her if she knew what it stood for. With all of the logic of a five-year-old, Jeaniene replied, “Yes, that’s what keeps the vampires away!”
It was just one of the many times she embarrassed her parents in public. You could also say Jeaniene’s been hooked on vampires ever since.
Jeaniene lives in Florida with her husband, Matthew, who long ago accepted that she swears like a sailor, rarely cooks, and always sleeps in on the weekends. Somehow he managed to cope, and the two of them recently celebrated their 14th wedding anniversary. Jeaniene and Matthew are the proud parents of Gypsy, their very spoiled dog who believes Jeaniene's only purpose in life is to cater to her. Aside from writing, Jeaniene enjoys reading, poetry, watching movies with her husband, exploring old cemeteries, spelunking, and traveling—by car. Airplanes, children, and cookbooks frighten her.
