Night Huntress, Book 3
Release Date: December 30, 2008
Story takes place a few months after OFITG and continues through the epilogue which takes place in March the following year.
Some things won’t stay buried . . . at grave’s end
It should be the best time of half-vampire Cat Crawfield’s life. With her undead lover Bones at her side, she’s successfully protected mortals from the rogue undead. But though Cat’s worn disguise after disguise to keep her true identity a secret from the brazen bloodsuckers, her cover’s finally been blown, placing her in terrible danger.
As if that wasn’t enough, a woman from Bones’s past is determined to bury him once and for all. Caught in the crosshairs of a vengeful vamp, yet determined to help Bones stop a lethal magic from being unleashed, Cat’s about to learn the true meaning of bad blood. And the tricks she’s learned as a special agent won’t help her. She will need to fully embrace her vampire instincts in order to save herself—and Bones—from a fate worse than the grave.
As soon as I got out of the car, I froze. Shock crept up my spine and it had nothing to do with the realization that I hadn’t been here since Bones came back into my life months ago.
From the feel of the energy leaking off her house, my mother wasn’t alone inside, but whoever was with her didn’t have a heartbeat. I started to slide my hand toward my purse, where I always had some silver knives tucked away, when a cold laugh made me stop.
“I wouldn’t do that if I were you, little girl,” a voice I hated said from behind me.
My mother’s front door opened. She was framed in it, with a dark-haired vampire who looked vaguely familiar cradling her neck almost lovingly in his hands.
And I didn’t need to turn around to identify the vampire at my back.

Question for Jeaniene
Q: “I wonder what Bones thought?” Like when Cat and Tate went ‘under-cover’ I wondered what was going through his mind at that point.”
A: *snerk* Oh, that’s easy. Here, I give you Bones’s internal monologue when Cat faked a date with Tate:
Don’t kill him, don’t kill him, don’t kill him, bloody sod, he touches her one more time and I’ll snap him in half…no, can’t kill him…yet…
