Read a Romance: Paranormal Romance

Paranormal romance novels involve fantasy worlds, the supernatural, or science fiction elements, which are intrinsic to the plot. Paranormal elements include: shifters, vampires, magic wielders (think witches, warlocks, mages, etc.), demons, angels, the Fae, gargoyles, mermaids, and mythical warriors. These books still have a happily ever after for a main couple, though sometimes this may… (more)

This is such a fun urban fantasy! I love that Cat is so young for one of these stories (comparing to Mercedes Thompson or Kate Daniels here). Bones and Cat are both very impulsive, and Cat is a great woman of steel heroine.

Mix some women of the otherworld, some not grosso laurell k. hamilton and throw in some buffy and you get this wonderfully cheesy, hilarious fun to read book with characters you want to hear more from.

I can't understand why this book got such good reviews. I'm a huge fan of urban fantasy - Patricia Briggs, Ilona Andrews, for example, but this book was so cheesy and predictable. Ugh. I actually hated it.

Fun, witty and humorous, Halfway to the Grave features a half-vampire heroine who hunts vampires for revenge and her growing desire for the British master vampire who is training her to be a better hunter. The book was good for a paranormal romance, but it was too cheesy for me to take too seriously.

My only complaint is that the books should be read in order and are not clearly numbered. Jeanine Frost is one of my favorite paranormal adventure writers. Interesting characters, fast pace, good plot twists, a page turner. Warning: You may lose sleep reading.

I laughed, I cried, I lusted! This book took my breath away, and I started the second in this series straight away, this is a story I don't want to put down or put away!

Hard to decide between a 3 or 4 star because it's in between imho. I really enjoyed the fun action but it was an easy read. Satisfying plot for a 1st in the series. I enjoyed Cat and Bones and will continue with the series.

Loved this book, couldn't put it down. Lots of steamy romance, nicely written characters and well written fight scenes

This book/series is an absolute must read! Each book ended up being on of those "I just can't put it down" types and I absolutely love Cat and Bones!! Great read, lots of detail and leaves you wanting more at the end.

No one believes in vampires... but Cat Crawfield knows better. She's been hunting them for the last 6 years, ever since learning her father is a vampire, a monster who raped her mother. Cat hunts partially to appease her mother, who fears Cat's unusual abilities. But then Cat meets Bones....

Bones isn't like the other vampires. Although he is a master vampire, he doesn't want to kill Cat or even stop her from killing other vampires. Instead, he has a proposition for Cat: work with him to kill specific vampires and he'll teach her all he knows. Will Cat be able to overcome her prejudices long enough to work with Bones?

Cat is a spunky heroine, dedicated to avenging her mother. She doesn't want to like Bones, or any other vampire for that matter. After all, her mother has drilled into her head just how evil vampires are... and just how evil the vampire half of Cat is. Killing vampires is the only way she can redeem herself, or is it?

“If you run from me I'll chase you. And I'll find you" - Bones to Cat - (2nd quote) I don't mind foreigners. God save the Queen!" - Timmie to Bones (lol)
