…what I love about this series the emotional highs and lows, it gets me completely caught up in whatever Cat is thinking and feeling. ~ Under the Covers
It has been four years since Cat Crawfield saved her vampire lover Bones’ life by walking away. The Government have now given her charge of her own unit of men who hunt and destroy rogue vampires, but she can’t let go of Bones, no matter how much she tries. But with an increased amount of assassination attempts on her, she may need his help to sniff out the culprit.
The ending of Halfway to the Grave tore my heart out and the beginning of One Foot in the Grave didn’t help restore it as we watch Cat live with the consequences of her decision to leave Bones. But that is part of what I love about this series the emotional highs and lows, it gets me completely caught up in whatever Cat is thinking and feeling.
Another reason to love this book, the infamous Chapter 32, which is exactly as hot as its reputation makes it out to be and also an excellent “How To” guide on how to get your boyfriends ex off your back:
“Do it your way, but I suggest another one. You could go ahead and beat her bloody, or…you could give me such loud, screaming orgasms that the sound of them blisters her ears. If you have any former-whore-turned-promiscuous-vampire tricks you’ve been holding back, well, bring them on. I only have one stipulation: You’d better outperform any service you gave to her or anyone else, because if I don’t wake up tomorrow red in the face from embarrassment at what you did to me, I’ll be disappointed.”
But aside from Cat and Bones One Foot in the Grave also builds up the Night Huntress world as we learn about vampires and see intimately just how the brutal undead society is. We are also introduced to new characters who become a staple of the this series, such as Mencheres and Ian.
This book is just as good as the first, full of pulse pounding action, some hot and dirty vampire lovin’ it kept me hooked till the very last word.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
