Heart of a Huntress

As one of the oldest surviving vampire hunters in the Foundation, Lana has learned the toughest lesson: success comes at a price. So while the yummy stranger she bumps into at Caesar's trips all her temptation switches, duty comes first. Better to be alone than to gamble with someone else's heart-or her own. Although maybe a one-night stand won't hurt.
 
Byron has set a one-way course for revenge against the Vegas vampire who murdered his uncle. When he collides with Lana, though, her scent calls to him like a potent aphrodisiac. The only explanation: she's his true-mate. And the timing couldn't be worse. He can't afford any distractions-not to mention it'll be hell convincing her to love someone who sprouts fur and fangs every full moon.
 
One drink together turns into a daring night of passion. Their erotic interlude ends abruptly with the news that Lana's partner has been abducted by the very vampire Byron seeks. Now Byron has no choice. He must reveal what he is and risk a rejection that could spell his own destruction.
 
I really enjoyed Heart of a Huntress. The whole society of the Foundation was intriguing, especially given that Lana is the oldest hunter … though she’s not that old herself. Heart of a Huntress reminded me of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but way more adult. The sex was hot and in the funny little warnings Samhain has for its books it says “A shower at the Venetian that may need to be closed for repairs until further notice”, which is so true. Lana and Byron’s lust for each other leapt off the pages. The shower scene was by far my favorite of the whole book, though I did have a giggle when Lana smoked that Vampire and scared the old cougar lady on the elevator.
 
I hope Heart of a Huntress is not the last book in what could be a great series. I want to know more about this elusive Foundation. I'll be looking for more of Ms. McHugh's books.
 
If you like Vampire slayers, hot sex, werewolves then you’ll love Heart of a Huntress.
