Product Description

Noel Harper got a second chance at life when the government recruited her as an undercover vampire informant. Since the day they brought her back from the good-as-dead, she has wanted to prove herself worthy.

When a member of her investigative unit is murdered, Noel is paired up with a vampire hunter named Dante to spy on a suspect in Fairbanks. The problem? They're not the only ones on stakeout. Taking down murderous vampires is one thing. Dealing with the past is another. But this time, Noel isn't letting fear win. She's calling in help from the other side and discovers a shocking secret along the way.

(STAKEOUT is an Aurora Sky: Vampire Hunter novella told from Noel Harper’s POV. Approximately 53,000 words.)

When the book began, I thought that it started a little too early but after I started getting into the book about the mission that Noel and Dante driving to fairbanks, It got a lot better. I also like that Joel's side of the story was in a separate book instead of being in just the one book and breaking everything up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprised me, shocked me, LOVED it! 3 February 2014
By Black Heart Ali - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
To say I was pissed off at Noel and Fane at the end of Northern Bites, would be gravely understating my feelings. I was beyond mad, miles past livid and neck deep in a "what the hell is happening" state of confusion.

When I found out that Stakeout was going to give me more insight on Noel's...behavior, I was chomping (pun intended) to get my anxious little digits on this novella. I expected there to be an explanation, of course there was. I had even gone through several scenarios in my head on how things could have wound up where they did.

I'll tell you though, my mind never went anywhere near where Stakeout took me. Jefford surprised me, shocked me, hit me over the head with what was happening beyond the readers eyes. For which, I am forever grateful.

So, you know you get some answers. Here is what else you get:

A big heavy dose of Dante, in all his goofy, adorable charm. A heaping helping of Fane, with a sexiness and tender side you may not have known existed.

And Noel. Who is much more fragile, tragic and broken than you'd expect.

If you don't come away from Stakeout with different feelings for many of the Aurora Sky Vampire Hunter characters, then it isn't me (the Ginger) who is lacking a soul...it's you. You may hate some more, love some more, feel a certain indifference towards others that wasn't there prior, but you will feel differently.

I'd suggest not skipping this novella, it's a must read for the series!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! 2 February 2014
By Rabid Reading - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Holy schamazeballs, what a great novella! No fluff or filler here, no sir! This was a fully developed story in its own right, complete with some truly awesome revelations that are sure to shake up the Aurora Sky world. The writing was crisp, and there was a perfect balance of snark, character development, and action to keep the story going. I loved getting inside Noel's head - I liked her before but man, she really rocked my socks off. And Fane...FANE! I am even more over the moon in love with him than I was before, and I already had it pretty bad for him, lol.

Well done, Nikki Jefford! You knocked another one outta the park!

4.0 out of 5 stars Short and sweet, with a little sass. 8 October 2015
By Kim D. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
In this novella we get to know Noel, Fane and Dante a little better.

After reading Stakeout I find that I like Noel more. Just based on her character in the books I found her a bit sketchy at times, and I wasn't sure Aurora should trust her. This book clears up a lot of the issues I had with her and the pieces are starting to come together for the bigger picture!

We spend a little more time with Dante and see a different side to him. (One that is not trying to seduce Aurora) I liked him more that way, but that has a lot to do with me being on team Fane. ;)

Speaking of Fane, I love him even more. He gives off this bad boy stereotype, but it turns out he's super sweet and willing to do anything for a friend! Even if that means hurting them for their own protection!

I love this series and I can't wait to read more!
5.0 out of 5 stars Miss Jefford joins the ranks of great epic novelists like Stephen King, Clive Barker and Ann Rice 16 May 2015
By Jeff L. Day aka The Dark Quill - Published on Amazon.com

The Author does a phenomenal job in coming back and creating multi-faceted layers and depths to her supporting cast. Valeria is an interesting footnote in the Aurora Sky series, but she is not necessarily what I would refer to as integral to the series; with the 2.5 and 2.6 additions, Miss Jefford joins the ranks of great epic novelists like Dana Fuller Ross of the Wagons West! series and Dana Clayton Porter of the White Indian series.
Harper (Noel Harper) is brought to life in this book, we see many new layers of her personality, depths of fragility and also get to see her as a pillar of strength. She is a far more complex character than I originally thought and this book reveals an entirely different Harper than the girl I thought I knew, also adding a great many shades of depth to other characters in the series; but she is also given an element that shows what is going on behind the carefree façade that gives the reader genuine empathy for her.
Pay attention at this point folks, I am mentioning something important here. There are many, such as MYSELF, that do not usually purchase FILLER releases, meaning anything that is a .5, .6, .7 etc. and if you follow your usual practice in this case you will be extremely sorry. Nikki Jefford did not pen these as the usual afterthought "filler" material to rob your pocketbooks, as many author's do. I do not know the woman myself, so I cannot speak of her intentions or her writing style, but it is MY humble opinion that she created this series as she did for the same reason that I have struggles so to come up with anything "publishable," most of today's audience simply does not have the attention span to sit down and read a book that is 4" thick and flips through chapters where one covers character A, the next character B and the next character G, then the next back to A and the next is C and etc. etc. Those were phenomenal books! I grew up on them, I idolized them and they are what created the bibliophile that I am; but authors face a different reality today and must dip there quill in a well and pen something for a different breed or reader. The chaos we call life today, does not allow many people the luxury of reading novels like Shogun anymore, they require quick, concise novels that offer the fulfillment and satisfaction of larger novels compacted into a much shorter read. Miss Jefford has Mastered this craft and I bow in humble admiration.
She creates a unique breed of vampire that I find appealing and as an author myself, [author: J.L. Day http://darkquill.jlday.net/ I have never really discovered written or cinematic vampire characters to my liking, other than my own. Miss Jefford, however; has managed to completely entice and captivate my attention and I have found myself smitten with her characters and this entire series.
I breathlessly anticipate her next release and cannot WAIT to see what her next offering is after she finishes the Aurora Sky series. I am thinking that as much as I have enjoyed my tryst with this series, I should go back to Amazon and purchase her Spellbound trilogy. I really am enchanted with this author and have great hopes that we finally have another Great One to add to the ranks, it has been too long since we had someone that was truly synonymous with the genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars UNfreakingbeivable!! 3 February 2014
By Bossert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Novella my A$$ this was a full story, new plot lines, "get the heck outta here" book! A normal novella is a short story to fill in between the line. Nikki not only filled in the lines she crossed lines and gave us new ones to follow... Thought you were in love with Fane before HA not even close to how you'll feel about him in Stakeout! Dante is as Hot and as smartass as ever. Aurora is in this one but since its not about her, this time shes in and out of the story. This story takes pace before, during and after book 2.. Noel is fantastic.. In the Aurora books she seems like the quite little girl just doing her job, Ya not so much in this.. Shes got a mouth and and an attitude that knocks you off your feet. I Loved her.. The story line and twists that Nikki throws at us are awesome.. This is a must read!! You WILL be begging for more .
