The night is not safe for mortals. Denise MacGregor knows all too well what lurks in the shadows—her best friend is half-vampire Cat Crawfield—and she has already lost more than the average human could bear. But her family’s past is wrapped in secrets and shrouded in darkness—and a demon shapeshifter has marked Denise as prey. Now her survival depends on an immortal who lusts for a taste of her.
He is Spade, a powerful, mysterious vampire who has walked the earth for centuries and is now duty-bound to protect this endangered, alluring human—even if it means destroying his own kind. Denise may arouse his deepest hungers, but Spade knows he must fight his urge to have her as they face the nightmare together . . .
Because once the first crimson drop falls, they will both be lost. 
I have never read the other books by this author that are so popular, but I will definitely be checking them out now after reading this book. 
I loved all the characters in this book.  Denise was a little whiney at first, but she does change throughout the book for the better.  Spade is just hot!  He needs no further explanation.  If Cat and Bones were wonderful so I know the series that features them will probably be devoured by me in one day as soon as I get them.  
I have read a bunch of review from numerous blogs, and everyone says that this book was not as great as they expected it to be.  I don’t see what was wrong with the book. It had plenty of action and romance for me.  (Can I get a HELL YEAH for that shower scene that Denise got to witness of Spade?!) HAWT!  Not to mention Ian sounds like a character I can’t wait to see unfold on the pages. Especially with more mentions to his piercing! I really enjoyed this book and I look forward to the next on in this series due out this summer in 2010.

Outstanding Book That Will Stay On My Bookshelf
For Rereading!

    I think you and I are in the minority – I really liked it too (and I have read her Night Huntress books). You’re going to looove Cat and Bones!
