What a great book! A sexy, undead guy and a sassy, spunky telepath heroine and their quest to have a "normal" relationship. I actually read the latest one (Definitely Dead) and liked it so well that I thought I would see how the series started. Read the first one over a weekend and now can't wait for the second book in the series to find me...
