Once Burned by Jeanine Frost
“An author who delivers only the best.”
“Put Jeaniene Frost on your must-read list!”
—Lara Adrian, New York Times bestselling author
Spinning off from her wildly successful, New York Times bestselling Night Huntress novels featuring vampire soulmates Cat and Bones, Jeaniene Frost kicks off the thrilling new Night Prince series with Once Burned. Vlad Tepesh, the ruthless master vampire and inspiration for Bram Stoker’s dark legend (but don’t dare call him Dracula) encounters a mortal woman with unimaginable power… including the ability to enflame his cold heart. Paranormal romance and urban fantasy fans who hunger for the novels of Kim Harrison, Christine Feehan, and Charlaine Harris are going to love The Night Prince and this dark and steamy tale of supernatural attraction.
From the back Cover
She's a mortal cursed with dark power...
After a tragic accident scarred her body and destroyed her dreams, Leila never imagined that the worst was still to come: a terrifying ability to channel electricity and to see 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, threatening to consume them. It will take everything they have to stop an enemy intent on bringing them down in flames.
Okay you guys, it's been a hot minute since I have read a Jeanine Frost story, and I had no regrets. I really loved this story a lot, it's VLAD! Whats not to love. I really liked Leila she takes no sh*t, and literally has Vlad by the balls. I am here for it, Leila is snarky, independent and it really was a nice change, some times in urban fantasy/ paranormal romance the female can be a little weak. Not in the case here, she is fantastic. Vlad, he is all ALPHA and more, he is controlling and exactly what we have come to know with reading the other series connected to this one, Cat and Bones make appearance and to say I was stupid happy was an understatement.
I loved that she s not a human that didn't know about supernatural creature, because already knowing about the world that goes bump at night is the ones i truly love more. She has some powers of her own, where she couldn't touch anyone or anything without frying them and also glimpses of the past, present and future. She also works in circus, with her best friend, sort of...vampire friend.She ends up getting stolen, and they wont her to do something crazy with Vlad, but she some how manages to have a connection with him and then the story begins.
I am really that this series is only 4 books long, that the author hasn't drag out there time in the spotlight. I love this world the Jeanine has created and it is always so much fun returning.
I like loved the paranormal romance plot of it all, it was all action, high stakes and at times dangerous, with fun side characters and I think it was never once over the top. I loved the way Vlad was written, hes been one I have been wanting to read about for a while now, I am happy I picked this book up. I would high recommend the series, but would start with reading the authors other series, because this is a spin off to that.
I am looking forward to reading them all very soon.
I also read this book for our #winterathonbingo19 challenge.
