How it all begun.....



So this week, I started re-reading Jeaniene Frost’s books in an attempt to explain to you all, why I absolutely love her, while I show you snippets of her work.

I found out I couldn’t… I can’t give you a snippet from her work, ‘cause I would have to copy all of her books here (and I’m pretty sure this is not allowed!).

(allow me to show you some trailers, while I  justify my love for this amazing author!)



I cannot find a paragraph, a sentence, a line that would be characteristic of her writing. It’s like picking a favorite feature for each one of 19 charismatic children (the number of her stories, books and novels, if I have counted correctly), which is impossible!

 
So how about I try to explain in my own words????

Years ago, I had just read my first paranormal romance, from a quite known author but I wasn’t completely satisfied from her writing , plus she had the storyline wrong!
That could not be happening! How can someone write about vampires and having them being the heroes? 
 

Why was the big bad Dracula, helping the good guys and not killing every single mortal?

That is when I started searching about PNR more and got into a world I had never even dreamed it could ever exist!



So, I buy this selection of books called “Death’s excellent Vacation” and I am speechless!

Who is this author, which has named the main characters Cat & Bones??? And what is it that I am missing from the story????? I had to read more to actually realize what was going on, which resulted in me searching Jeaniene’s bibliography.

I bought the first book, I read it in a matter of hours, I one-clicked every single book she had written until then and did not stop until I had read them all.


Welcome to the Night Huntress Universe!!!



It features Cat, half human – half vampire, who stakes first and asks questions later!



She starts falling in love, with Bones, vampire, contract killer/ bounty hunter, with an oh- so-sexy English accent. She is reluctant, scared, even if she won’t admit it, but he wants her and will stop at nothing until he has her!



Cat and Bones love each other so much, they do not hesitate to go to extremes, in order to protect each other.



Did I mention that the sex scenes are amazing, original and breath-taking??? Oh Yeah!



Their HEA comes after many books and lots of adventures, but no book could ever be considered the same with another in the series.



And while the Night Huntress series revolver around them, the secondary characters play important roles as well!



Mencheres and Charles already have their own books and we are impatiently waiting for Ian’s.



Their ventures are more than risky, but full of passion, in a world where supernatural beings are restless.


Vlad, on the other hand, got his own trilogy! 



I would say it is only fitting, for the most notorious of them, to find his perfect match. ‘Cause let’s face it….. It takes a strong woman to deal with Vlad the Impaler.



OnceBurned” and “Twice Tempted” are the first books and on January 27thBoundby Flames”, the last installment, will be out!


(Damn, I love the model!!!)


But while developing all the aspects of the above mentioned universe, this amazing author dared to do something extremely extraordinary!



She wrote and published her first New Adult book, called “The Beautiful Ashes”, from The Broken Destiny series. A must read for the lovers of the kind. Yes, it is another paranormal miracle, since Jeaniene Frost only knows how to write phenomenal books.



She has also written two short stories, "Pack" and "Night's Darkest Embrace", not affiliated with the Night Huntress universe, but still oh-so-awesome!!! Especially the latter, is my favorite short story of all times!

Jeaniene Frost is the reason I am such a bookworm and the first author that fueled my love for paranormal romance.

She gave me my first book boyfriend, Bones, and went on with Mencheres, Charles and Vlad (Ian is on the list, too, even if he doesn’t have a book yet).

The few swag items I have from her, are my most valued possessions, her e-books are always on my e-reader and I plan to get all of her books in print as well.



Thank you Jeaniene, for sharing your stories with us. I could never imagine my life without them. ~ Kiki
