Halfway to the Grave (Night Huntress, #1) Title: Halfway to the Grave
Author: Jeaniene Frost
Series: Night Huntress #1
Publication Date: November 1, 2007
Genre: Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance

Synopsis:

 Half-vampire Catherine Crawfield is going after the undead with a vengeance, hoping that one of these deadbeats is her father—the one responsible for ruining her mother’s life. Then she’s captured by Bones, a vampire bounty hunter, and is forced into an unholy partnership.

In exchange for finding her father, Cat agrees to train with the sexy night stalker until her battle reflexes are as sharp as his fangs. She’s amazed she doesn’t end up as his dinner—are there actually good vampires? Pretty soon Bones will have her convinced that being half-dead doesn’t have to be all bad. But before she can enjoy her newfound status as kick-ass demon hunter, Cat and Bones are pursued by a group of killers. Now Cat will have to choose a side . . . and Bones is turning out to be as tempting as any man with a heartbeat.

 

Storm Front (The Dresden Files, #1)

Title: Storm Front
Author: Jim Butcher
Series: The Dresden Files #1
Publication Date: April 1, 2000
Genre: Urban Fantasy

Synopsis:

Harry Dresden–Wizard
Lost items found. Paranormal investigations.
Consulting. Advice. Reasonable rates.
No Love Potions, Endless Purses, Parties, or Other Entertainment.

Harry Dresden is the best at what he does. Well, technically, he’s the only at what he does. So when the Chicago P.D. has a case that transcends mortal creativity or capability, they come to him for answers. For the “everyday” world is actually full of strange and magical things–and most of them don’t play too well with humans. That’s where Harry comes in. Takes a wizard to catch a–well, whatever.

There’s just one problem. Business, to put it mildly, stinks. So when the police bring him in to consult on a grisly double murder committed with black magic, Harry’s seeing dollar signs. But where there’s magic, there’s a black mage behind it. And now that mage knows Harry’s name. And that’s when things start to get… interesting.

Magic. It can get a guy killed.

Succubus Blues (Georgina Kincaid, #1)

Title: Succubus Blues
Author: Richelle Mead
Series: Georgina Kincaid #1
Publication Date: March 1, 2007
Genre: Urban Fantasy/Paranormal Romance

Synopsis:

Succubus (n.) An alluring, shape-shifting demon who seduces and pleasures mortal men. Pathetic (adj.) A succubus with great shoes and no social life. See: Georgina Kincaid.

When it comes to jobs in hell, being a succubus seems pretty glamorous. A girl can be anything she wants, the wardrobe is killer, and mortal men will do anything just for a touch. Granted, they often pay with their souls, but why get technical?

But Seattle succubus Georgina Kincaid’s life is far less exotic. Her boss is a middle-management demon with a thing for John Cusack movies. Her immortal best friends haven’t stopped teasing her about the time she shape-shifted into the Demon Goddess getup complete with whip and wings. And she can’t have a decent date without sucking away part of the guy’s life. At least there’s her day job at a local bookstore–free books; all the white chocolate mochas she can drink; and easy access to bestselling, sexy writer, Seth Mortensen, aka He Whom She Would Give Anything to Touch but Can’t.

But dreaming about Seth will have to wait. Something wicked is at work in Seattle’s demon underground. And for once, all of her hot charms and drop-dead one-liners won’t help because Georgina’s about to discover there are some creatures out there that both heaven and hell want to deny…

  1. Ah, The Dresden Files. I’ve been wondering what those books are like. As long as prospects look good, then I’m in. Hope you get the books you want soon!

    Here’s my OMW: http://abnormallyparanormal.blogspot.com/2011/10/on-my-wishlist-2-10222011.html

    You HAVE to read the Dresden files!!! It’s one of the best series I’ve ever read and just gets better and better! Storm Front is a decent start to the series, but get so much more out of it if you carry on reading and by the end of the third book you’ll be in love! 🙂

  3. I’ve read one of the Dresden Files which I really liked, but it was quite far down in the series. I really should start at the beginning though, and put Storm Front on my list too!

  4. I love Cat & Bones!! Hope you get to read that series, as well as the other books on your wishlist, soon 🙂

  5. Pussreboots says:

    Storm front is on my TBR. I’m wishing for the latest book by Susan Orlean. Please come see what it is.

  6. Looks like you got one of your wishlist already! YaY! I love that series. I’m behind and still need to read the last 2.

    Those other 2 look great too! I also need to read them. Hope you get them all!

  7. alterlisa says:

    I’ve yet to read any of the Dresden Files but if they are half as good as the short lived TV show and the books are always better, it’s one series I’m planning on diving into soon.

  8. Halfway to the Grave & Succubus Blues are fabulous books and series! You must get them soon! I’m dying to get Stray by Rachel Vincent. I have heard great things about her Sifters series and I hope to read them all soon!
