There's a Fine Line Between Sin and Salvation . . .Ellie Watt is a woman on the run. Raised by a pair of thieves who taught her the art of the grift-and pursued by a mobster who fell for her con-she hopes to find refuge at her uncle's farm in quiet Palm Valley, California. Ellie swears she's through with her life of crime. But before she knows it, she's right back in the game when she meets an easy mark who's too good-and too hot-to be true.His name is Camden McQueen. A master tattoo artist and a total inked stud, Camden is nothing like the awkward kid who crushed on Ellie back in high school. Now, as owner of the wildly successful Sins & Needles, he's got tats to kill for, muscles to die for, and money to burn. Ellie can't believe the transformation-and can't resist pulling off one last con. But when Camden catches Ellie red-handed, the tables are turned. The mark becomes the master. And when the ultimate player gets played, you never know who's going to end up on top . . .Approx. 100,000 words.
I am in love with this author! For me it was love at first read, first character, first emotion, first realization that this was brilliant From her totally fleshed out and beautifully flawed characters Sins and Needles made me deliriously happy as a reader. I adored the character growth we witness and Halle sets the standard so high I am actually afraid to read and review anything at the moment. I completely immersed myself into the world she created, and loved everything from the quirky characters to the flash-backs. I was one hundred percent emotionally invested in the characters and ya all know that high I chase as a reader *nods head* Major buzz here!!

Series: Pretty When She Dies, #0.5
Published by: Hachette
Genres: Paranormal Romance
An exciting new short novel set in the world of Pretty When She Dies...
Cassandra is a dhamphir-the offspring of a vampire and mortal woman-and a thief of occult relics.
Aimee is a full-blood witch that is bound to a powerful vampire who traffics in the slavery of supernatural beings. Both are powerful, lonely, and trapped in the dangerous world of the vampires. When Cassandra steals a relic from Aimee’s vampire master, he targets her as his next acquisition. What he doesn’t realize is that a chance encounter between Cassandra and Aimee ignited a spark between them that they cannot deny. To survive, the women must find a way to band together and fight against the ruthless evil that conspires to enslave them forever.
We met Aimee and Cass at the end of Pretty When She Kills and they immediately captured my interest, so I was delighted when Frater gave them their own tale. Cassandra is a dhamphir which means she has a vampire father and human mother. She is a thief and steals important relics using her gifts. Aimee is a full-blooded witch, who is enslaved by the blood bond with Frank the vampire master. This tale shares how they met and it is a must read for fans of the Pretty When She Dies series. The characters are fleshed out and I enjoyed everything from their interaction to their darker sides. In typical Frater nail-biting suspense the tale immediately drew me in and wouldn’t release me until the final page. I am so glad she gave us this novella and cannot wait for the final book Pretty When She Destroys due out August 27, 2013.
