Flirting With The Grave…
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.
In exchange for help finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She’s amazed she doesn’t end up as his dinner – are there actually good vampires? Pretty soon Bones will have her convinced that being half-dead doesn’t have to be all bad. But before she can enjoy her status as kick-ass demon hunter, Cat and Bones are pursued by a group of killers. Now Cat will have to choose a side … and Bones is turning out to be as tempting as any man with a heartbeat.

I gotta admit that when I first started reading the book I didn't like Bones. I liked Cat, she was a strong and clever heroine with a sense of innocence (meaning that she wasn't used to swearing or naked men in her truck asking for a "shag"), she was the perfect hybrid and—to a certain extent—a good role model when it came to killing Vampires. But as the book went on, and bones finally began to show a little bit more of his true self in order to convince Cat that not all Vampires are evil, I fell in love with him. Anyways, Cat was good at killing Vampires, using her femenine charms against the Vampires, except that this brave and bitter Kitty was very reckless at killing them. Sure, she got a lot of killings, but most of them were more luck than skill because if she would have come in contact with a Master... bye bye kitty. 
It is rather funny as you read the book how she, without realizing it, begins to fall in love with one of the undead she's sworn to kill in for her mother's sake due to the fact that Cat is the product of a rape her mother suffered in the hands of a newly made Vampire (Later on the book Bones explains Cat how it was possible for her mom to conceive her).
So it is very suspenseful as you wonder whether or not she will be able to overcome her prejudice of Vampires and allow herself to love again. I totally understood her and her doubts. 
I totally recommend this book, and the following ones to the series, as a good read. An amazing one actually for those of you who love Urban Fantasy. It kept me on the edge of my seat and it's packed with lots of action.

Next, there is a video of Jeaniene Frost talking about her Night Huntress series. I put this because I couldn't fine the original video. Enjoy! :D

My rating: 4.0

I had heard so much about this series. I am wondering why I didn't read it sooner. I absolutely loved this book. It captivated me from the first page. I could not put it down. It was fun, it was exciting, it was sexy.
