Night Huntress, Book Two
One Foot In The Grave
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.

Read the one-page teaser scene that appears in the front of the book:
“You are so arrogant.”
Bones came closer. “I’m very powerful. That is truth, not arrogance. Every member of your team combined couldn’t protect you as well as I can, and you know it. Whether you want my help or not, you’re getting it.”
“Don’t worry about me, I can take care of myself.”
I was suddenly gripped in Bones’s arms. Maybe that was my own fault and not just due to his speed. I’d been so busy keeping up my emotional shields, I’d forgotten about my physical ones. And truth be told, I never expected him to bite me.
Yeah, I’d let my usual vampire guards down all the way with Bones.
His fangs buried deep into my neck. The strangest kind of heat flooded all through me. Bones tightened his arms around me, tilting me back, and licked my neck before sinking his teeth in again.
My fists thumped on his back. It was all I was capable of doing to tell him to stop, since my mouth only seemed good for making little ecstatic noises.
I found myself thinking if I were going to die, at least I’d die happy.
