She has no idea who he is, but he raped her mother one night 22 years ago. Catherine strolls nightclubs looking for her next target. Vampires always put off a frequency that rubs her in an odd way. She has a few tricks up her sleeve. One is that she has a heartbeat and looks and feels human to the vamps. One night she meets a master vampire that she can't handle.
Bones is a vampire hunter and also a vampire himself. When Catherine tries to kill him he turns the tables on her. They come to a consensus and team up. Catherine is the perfect bait and Bones a strong vampire. They take on an evil vampire group that has been kidnapping women. As things get rough will Bones leave Catherine to be sold into slavery or will his love for her lead to an unexpected ending?
After reading this first book by Jeaniene Frost it won't be my last. I love the darker side of the paranormal and Ms. Frost's world fit's the bill. Both Bones and Catherine are kick ass characters that will have you wondering if they will ever find common ground. If you like Keri Arthur, Sherrilyn Kenyon or Christine Feehan make sure to add this book to your list. This is a must read for any paranormal fan.
