I love this series for the smoking hot romance between Cat and Bones, the funny and interesting secondary characters and the pulse pounding action ~ Under the Covers

What Cat needs is a holiday with her vampire husband Bones, away from the violence and power struggles of the undead world. But, even in her sleep she can’t relax as long repressed memories start to surface and a vampire escapes imprisonment to publicly claim Cat as his wife.

This book is my personal favourite in the series, maybe because I am a sucker for punishment as Destined for an Early Grave puts Cat and Bones relationship to the ultimate test. We watch Cat struggling with her feelings about vampires, reading as her love for Bones get battered and trampled, and wondering if it will survive the beating all this combined had my eyes glued to the page.

This is the fourth book in the series now, and I am not sure there is much more I can add that I haven’t mentioned in my previous reviews. I love this series for the smoking hot romance between Cat and Bones, the funny and interesting secondary characters and the pulse pounding action that Frost injects into every book, and Destined for an Early Grave was no different.

Like I said, this book is my favourite book in the Night Huntress series, I highly recommend you start it (if you haven’t already) for this book alone!

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

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?
