A short fun read that worked perfectly well as a standalone for me... “We're your guardians until my uncle tracks down your cousin and arrests him." Tammy's face was almost comical in its incredulity. "But it's daylight," she said at last. "Vampires can't go out in the sun, everyone knows that!" Bones chuckled. "Right. And we shrink back from crosses, can't travel over water, can't enter a home unless invited, and always get staked in the end by the righteous slayer. Really, who'd be afraid of a creature like that? All you'd need is a Bible, a tanning bed, and some holy water to send us shivering to our dooms.” Cat’s and Bones’ romantic get-away is cut short when they are called upon to protect a spoiled human heiress with a price on her head in One for the Money by Jeaniene Frost. The author can sure cram a lot of fun excitement into sixty pages! Even though I’ve not read the rest of the series, I thoroughly enjoyed this delightful romp on the wild side. It’s available as a single novella and in at least two anthologies: Magic Graves and Death's Excellent Vacation. As the story opens, man-and-wife vampires Cat and Bones’ R&R time away is interrupted when they, along with Fabian, a ghost, are called into service to protect Tammy, who is annoying and not exactly cooperative. They whisk Tammy away to Cat’s childhood home which is supposed to be a safe, secluded refuge – only to find Cat’s mother there. Cat’s mother has issues of her own as she detests vampires – but is now a vampire herself. Can Cat and Bones keep Tammy safe as they become targets too? Will Cat and Bones eek out any alone time amid all the ruckus? Can Bones find a way into Cat’s mother’s hard shell? Pick up this novella to find out! Following please find a few of my favorite quotes from this cute novella: “Let me get this straight," Tammy interrupted. "I asked some of my father's old government friends for help when 'accidents' kept happening to me, and someone sent a vampire to protect me?" "Actually, two vampires," I corrected. "The ghost was a bonus.” --- “Whoever said 'Don't play with your food' sure hadn't been a vampire.” --- Here I was, misty-eyed at watching him show my mother how to stab the shit out of him. One for the Money is a short read that worked perfectly well as a standalone for me. I enjoyed the humor, the spicy romance, the action sequences and the mystery. Cat’s and Bones’ sweet, sassy and hot relationship makes me want to read more stories featuring them. If you are craving a quickie escape, One for the Money can take you where you want to go!
