A Cat’s Chance in Hell is book one in the Hellcat series and does not disappoint. Reading it in just two sittings, it is page after page of pure delight. The heroine Gabi is smart, sexy, and funny. She doesn’t back down from anything or anyone set in her path, including the incredibly gorgeous and powerful Master Vampire, Julius.
When Julius brings Gabi unwillingly into his world nothing could have prepared her. Bracing for a fight she is surprised to say the least when she realizes that he has taken her in to warn her of the war to come and shocked to find the instant connection she feels with Julius. Gabi is forced to go against all of her training and put her trust into the enemy in order to save the city. While learning her true connection to the Vampire race, discoveries about Gabi are made that put her in more danger than she has ever been in, danger that Julius is determined to keep her from.
The story line was very well thought out, full of action, comic relief (to the point that I was very unsuccessfully trying to hide my smile), suspense, and a few steamy scenes to boot. I loved the detail that was put into supporting characters and even a few friendly pets that I am sure any reader will grow very fond of.
Sharon Hannaford did an amazing job bringing her story to life and I am very anxiously awaiting the rest of the Hellcat series.
If the Demon Master gets his way the City is about to become Hell on Earth.
Gabi has some extraordinary talents. Some might call them supernatural, but for her they’re just part of everyday life. What she knows about the supernatural would give most humans nightmares forever. Ridding the streets of bad-ass creatures of the night is Gabi’s other job. Taking up the mantle of her father’s legacy, she is a Hunter for the Societas Malus Venatori. The first female ever bestowed the title. Her day job is a little less dangerous. Most of the time.
Being ambushed and kidnapped by the sinfully sexy Master Vampire of the City should have been just another night on the job, except for the fact that Julius has other plans for her. When he reveals that his nemesis wants control of the City and has plans to fill it with Demons from the Etherworld, creating an army of Ghouls and turning humans into nothing more than cattle to feed his Clan, Gabi must choose her path. She must decide whether to join with Julius in a stand against the Demon Master or flee the City with her friends and family, leaving the Vampires to wage their own war and the rest of the residents to their fate.
But it’s not in Gabi’s nature to back down from a fight, no matter how impossible the odds. As the Malus Venatori prepare for war, Gabi finds herself pulled deeper into Julius’s world and she makes some disturbing discoveries about her unusual supernatural abilities. Her existence might just be the answer to a mystery as old as the Vampire race. Even more unsettling than that is her undeniable attraction to Julius and the taste of his blood. But before she can come to terms with her conflicting desires they must all survive the Demon onslaught and find a way to safeguard the truth of her heritage.
While the supernatural bad guys know her as Angeli Morte, her friends call her Hellcat!
If you like your heroine smart, sassy and absolutely kick-ass and your Vampire hero sexy as sin and twice as dangerous you’re going to love the Hellcat Series.
