One for the Money by Jeaniene Frost is the last of the Nighthuntress world for me to read, and it’s a bit bittersweet. I’m pretty sure the Nighthuntress series is done, and I am going to miss Cat and Bones.  But I do look forward to the rest of the Night Prince series with Vlad, and the upcoming Night Rebel series with Ian.

One for the Money though is actually pretty amusing. A spoilt young heiress is having one too many ‘accidents’.  Reaching out to a friend of her father’s in the military (who happens to be Cat’s uncle) to help protect her, it is soon discovered that the all-too-human hitman is about to employ some supernatural muscle to finally get the hit done.  And who better than to protect the girl from supernatural bounty hunters than a pair of retired supernatural bounty hunters?

But looking after Miss Congeniality is not a walk in the park. Demanding, stubborn, rude, loud, she pushes all of Cat and Bones’ buttons.  Only Cat’s newly-turned-vampire mum has any sway over the girl, thankfully for the better.

And after a knock down drag out brawl with twelve other vampires in the parking lot of a supernatural night club, the threat to the girl is ended and they’re able to green-eye her back into the rich little world.

So no big revelations on personal backgrounds and histories here, but I do like the progress of the relationship between Bones and Cat’s mother. Under the pretense of teaching the girl self-defense, Bones enlists the aid of Cat’s mother Justina, his true pupil, as a way to ease her lifelong fear of vampires and hopefully help her fight back against the self-loathing of becoming one herself.

And with that comes the end of the Nighthuntress series for me, although if you want to stick to publication timelines the true ending was back in Outtakes of the Grave. Looking forward to more Night Prince and checking out Night Rebel, but before that I want to look at some other random little stories Jeaniene Frost has come out with.

On that note, let’s have a look at Night’s Darkest Embrace shall we?

Enter the dark realm of Nocturna in Jeaniene Frost’s redhot tale, where blisteringly sexy Raphael dominates the demons of a lawless dimension and tries to help a beautiful young woman avenge her cousin’s disappearance. Originally appeared in the Haunted By Your Touch anthology.
