One of my all time favorite series (including the awesome “spin-off) – this is a MUST read! A world where vampires, ghouls, ghosts, and shifters exist (in hiding) amongst our own human population! Cat (born half human, half vampire) started off as a vampire hunter, but tangled with the wrong monster. Or should I say, the right one?
Bones showed her the error of her ways, helped her embrace and develop her vampire side, and together, they have been battling evil for six books now. Always exciting, laugh-out-loud funny, emotional, and sometimes downright scary. Each installment provides a new mystery to solve, a new battle to overcome, and another chapter in an intense romance that still gives me butterflies.
It’s not always easy though. Cat and Bones have hit many walls along the way, proving that two very strong-willed, in-love, powerful individuals will sizzle right off your page.
As per the author’s website:
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 unlikely partnership.

As per the author:
The NIGHT HUNTRESS series is an urban fantasy romance featuring half-vampire heroine Cat Crawfield. My heroine and hero have a difficult road ahead of them and they will have to work very hard to earn their HEA (happily-ever-after), so their story isn’t over with the first book. Hope you come along for the ride.
