Happily Never After
Isabella Spaga is about to reluctantly walk down the aisle with Mr. Dangerously Wrong...but not if dashing vampire Chance has anything to say about it. As a favor to Bones, Chance has come to derail this wedding of beauty to the beast. Now if only he can keep his hands off the bride. From New York Times bestselling author Jeaniene Frost’s Night Huntress world, it’s the wed...more
My love of necessary violence and Bad Boys makes anything mafia-related an obvious choice for me, and while this novella's villain is a gangster wannabe, it's still a lot of fun.
Once upon a time, Greta Spaga was a member of Bones' household. She left to live a human life with the man she fell in love with, but when her grandchildren find themselves in a bad situation, she doesn't hesitate to ask him for help.
Bones can't take care of the situation him ...more
Greta will ask Bones'help and he will sent Chance to help her. Bones is Chance's sire. Chance will be attracted to I ...more
Fair warning: While set in the Night Huntress World this is not a story about Cat and Bones! (Bones makes an appearance for a sec or two in the beginning and the end, though.)
We meet Chance, a vampire sired by Bones, who is helping Isa to find her brother and to prevent her wedding with the local mobster.
I really liked both MCs.
Isa had a quick mind that made me smirk more than once. (Yeast infection is all I say!)
Chance... We don't get a lot of him and his backround. I liked him, thoug ...more
I really enjoyed reading this short story. It is set in the same universe as the night huntress series (kind of logic since it's a novella from the same series, but still good to know).
It however doesn't really involve Cat and Bones. Though Bones does make an appearance in two scenes. This whole story is about the vampire Chance who is helping out Isabella as a favor to his Sire, who happens to be Bones. It's a nice short story with humour, romance and suspence and great for a nice sh ...more
I actually first got this in Weddings From Hell - it was my intro into the Night Huntress world and I loved it. Cat & Bones have only a tiny part to play, but since I didn't know who Cat & Bones were, it really didn't matter. This story was wonderful on it's own.
Hero and heroine were fantastic, great chemistry (all hail Ms. Frost - the queen of the smexy), I believed the romance (a neat feat in a novella) and I absolutely LOVED the grandma (kickass grannies are the best!)
I really hated the situation in which Isabella was in and loved the way Chance played with her betrothed before he was finally killed. Short and funny, it was a great way to fill in half an hour of free time.
I still really love this novella, and I hope that we get to see some of Chance and Isa in future novels in this series.
I actually really enjoyed this novella. In fact, just in the 2 novellas and one novel I've read of Frost's, I've decided that I really do like her third person voice in the 2 novellas than her 1st person in novels. In general, I prefer third person over first, but with Frost, I feel her writing is stronger in the third person and makes ...more
I've read quite a few novellas and can happily say this is one of the best. Although it is part of the Night Huntress series it doesn't feature Cat and we only have a brief appear ...more
I really enjoy Ms. Frost's writing ... and though (at first) I am kinda bummed that this one is NOT about Cat and Bones, I forget about it quick enough because Isa and Ch ...more
I have to say getting more/different characters in this world makes me want more, more, more.
This world Jeaniene has created is probably one of my most favorites to come back to over and over again.
I really enjoyed the fact that Isa didn’t freak out and go screaming in to the night when she found out what and who Chance is.
She was open minded and didn’t judge. Sure she questioned who wouldn’t.
To be honest I can’t remember reading this the first time, so I am glad I re read this ...more
Chance has a simple job for a master vampire. His task is to save Isabella Spaga from coerced marraige to a wannabe Goodfellas mafia boss as a favor to an old friend. These mobsters have a hard time getting Chance to sleep with the fishes. Isabella teaches women the power of Vagisil. LOL (You have to read it.) This novella delivers laughs and romance.
Bones has teeny tine scene. This story can stand alone. Enjoy!
Hot guy in a dark corner watching your every move. Creep? Hot? Sexy? Intoxicating? Maybe a bit of all the above but there is nothing about it as bad as marrying a man you just can't stand.
Thanks, Jeaniene, I'm a very happy girl.
As someone who is still fairly new to the Night Huntress universe, I thoroughly enjoyed this short story even though it seems to be only minimally connected to the main book that proceeds it. We only get a few glimpses of Bones here, and he seems somehow a bit different, though perhaps his be ...more
Happily Never After was a fun, quick read that gave me a bit of the Night Huntress world, without focusing at all on Cat and Bones. I enjoyed it and hope I get to see some of these characters more!
I really loved the characters in Happily Never After. They're decently well developed for a short and have fun personalities. Greta was my favorite character - she's Isabella's grandmother and an OLD friend of Bones. She calls on him for some help for her gr ...more
I love Jeaniene's Night Huntress world and reading a novella set in it, even with different characters, is still amazing!
Isabella is one tough chick! She's in a helluva situation where she literally has to marry this prick of a dude! Robert is a mobster and like any jerky guy he wants what he can' ...more
Wanting a quick read before seriously getting back into Peril’s Gate (and, if I’m honest, something short enough I could squeeze it in as an August read), I picked up Jeaniene Frost’s Happily Never After, which was a short piece set in her Night Huntress world. It was originally published in an anthology (Weddings from Hell I think it wa ...more
Even though this novella is set between the first and second books in the ...more
I would have liked this story better if it would have had something to do with the Night Huntress series. Bones makes a short appearance, but other than that it really was an independent story from the rest of the series. This story took place during the four years Cat and ...more
