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.
“Don't squander what you have. If you do, you'll spend the rest of your days regretting it.”Vlad
“As you can see, guys, Belinda has been fired.”Cat
“I half expected her to yell, April Fool's! but it was November, so that would be way early.”Cat
“Why does everyone think being cryptic is cool?”Cat
“Juan will cry at being stuck in the van. If he were here, he'd be screaming, Authenticity's imperative! and taking his pants down.”Dave
“Bones was deferring to me, since in work matters, I was in charge. In matters of personal vampire affairs, however, Bones outranked me by more than two centuries.”Cat
“Aliens replaced her with a pod person, I found myself thinking. That’s the only explanation.”Cat about Justina
“Hello to you, too, Mom. Or whoever the hell you are, because you sure don’t look like the woman who raised me.”Cat about Justina
“The humor of that struck me and I laughed. My mother, agreeing with the vampire who’d sired Max? Now that was a Christmas miracle if I’d ever heard one.”Cat
“Bones… His name echoed in my mind as I slipped into the waiting unconsciousness. Maybe I’ll dream of you.”Cat
“This is a dream, it occurred to me. A dream, and I will thank Don from the bottom of my heart for this fake chance to hold Bones again. God bless modern science and tons of codeine mixed with sedatives!”Cat
“Come on, Vlad, you’re breaking character. Magnanimous isn’t your best color.”Cat to Vlad
“It must be difficult for you. I meant it must be difficult for you to decide what you are. I never had to wrestle with that. When I changed into a vampire, I couldn’t revert back to my humanity under any circumstances. Yet you wake up every day trapped in yours. As I said, difficult.” “I said I wanted to be alone, Vald. Get out of here.” “That’s not why your really here, Catherine.” “Don’t call me that.” “Why not? Standing on that ledge is Catherine Crawfield, not Cat, the Red Reaper. Catherine has no obligations, no responsibilities, and she’s decided to follow her husband to the grave. In the end, it appears you’ve chosen your human side. How interesting.”Vlad, Cat
“He’ll learn that many women can satisfy for a short period of time, but when he falls in love, only one will sustain him forever.”Bones

“I’ve never been jealous before I met you,” Bones went on, still in that same soft, menacing tone. “It burns, luv. Like silver through my veins. Some nights, watching you with other men on your jobs, I think it will drive me mad.”Highlighted by 54 Kindle customers
Oh, Dracula as well, Annette? I guess if Frankenstein and the Wolf Man were real, they’d already have double-teamed you.Highlighted by 49 Kindle customers
“How could you be nervous about asking me to marry you, Bones? I’d die for you. Why wouldn’t I want to live for you as well?”Highlighted by 45 Kindle customers
Bones slid off the couch to kneel in front of me. I still didn’t get it. Only when I saw the small black velvet box in his other hand did it hit me. “Catherine.” If I hadn’t already guessed, his one and only use of my real name would have clued me in. “Catherine Kathleen Crawfield, will you marry me?”Highlighted by 37 Kindle customers
Lo and behold, he’d managed to give her a sense of humor, and here I’d figured that would take voodoo, several headless chickens, and a lot of gris-gris.Highlighted by 36 Kindle customers

“It was just an act,” I said again. “Oh, I know that,” Bones replied at once. Those glittering green eyes met mine. “Tate wouldn’t be alive now if it wasn’t. I know you only did this to get Hykso, but Kitten.” His voice deepened. Hardened. “No matter the cause, don’t you dare, ever, let someone handle you in such a way again.”Highlighted by 29 Kindle customers
