Halfway To The Grave By: Jeaniene Frost

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 unholy partnership.

In exchange for 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 newfound 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.

Cat is a half breed vampire who hunts down vampires as a hobby.

Crispin Russell, aka Bones, full vampire, is a vampire bounty hunter.

After a pretty hilarious introduction, they make an arrangement to work together to hunt down some of the biggest baddest vampires.

Bones trains Cat in all the ways she's lacking and they gives her a bit of a makeover as well.

Together, they learn about a lot disappearing women that go "unnoticed" by their family and even police. Obviously something isn't right here, and they are bound and determined to figure it out!

All while they're fighting for their lives as well as saving others lives, they fall in love. But its hard for Cat to come to terms with because of her previous prejudice with vampires due to her absent vampire sire that raped her mother that resulted in her birth.

This story is highly entertaining and full of love, humor, and some kick ass fighting. Cat is just a little badass and Bones is a fantastic English accented bonus in everything.

It's been fun watching Cat come into some of the powers she has due to her half vampire self. She and Bones are super funny and super sexy together. This was my second time reading this book, and I sure did miss it. Glad I'm re-reading the series!
