Sum It Up! Jeaniene Frost - how thy love thee.

She’s a mortal with dark powers...

After a tragic accident scarred her body and destroyed her dreams, Leila never imagined that the worst was still to come: terrifying powers that let her channel electricity and learn a person’s darkest secrets through a single touch. Leila is doomed to a life of solitude... until creatures of the night kidnap her, forcing her to reach out with a telepathic distress call to the world’s most infamous vampire...

He’s the Prince of Night...

Vlad Tepesh inspired the greatest vampire legend of all — but whatever you do, don’t call him Dracula. Vlad’s ability to control fire makes him one of the most feared vampires in existence, but his enemies have found a new weapon against him – a beautiful mortal with powers to match his own. When Vlad and Leila meet, however, passion ignites between them, threatening to consume them both. It will take everything that they are to stop an enemy intent on bringing them down in flames.  (Goodreads)


Jeaniene Frost - how thy love thee...Being a HUGE fan of the Night Huntress world I was beyond excited when it was announced Vlad would get his own series, and true to Frost's unbelievable storytelling this book is fangtastic!

Lelia is human with a special ability for electricity and she can also connect to people's past, present and futures. When she is kidnapped then forced to connect with Vlad Tepesh, one of the most powerful vampire's in existence he comes to her aid dealing with his enemies. Once Vlad and Lelia come to terms with helping one another take down the puppet master behind her kidnapping they succumb to their desires for each other.

Once Burned gives everything readers were hoping for in Vlad's story with remnants of his past and why is so cold and calculated to destroy his enemies. Lelia made a very intriguing heroine with her straight forward attitude along with her compassion for others. Once the romance got heated up there is no denying these two are going to be a power couple and let's just say Chapter 23 is smoking hot....and no, I'm not referring to Vlad's fire ability!

Look for Twice Tempted to the Night Prince series set to release March 19 and the next Cat and Bones book will follow in winter of 2013.
