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.
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…
Once Burned by Jeaniene Frost is the first book in her Night Prince series which is a spin-off of her wildly popular Night Huntress series. After reading Once Burned I can certainly understand why so many readers love her books. I was immediately drawn into the world Jeaniene Frost created. I loved how interesting and likable her characters were. Vlad was by far my favorite because he was so straightfoward and brutally honest about what he was. The build up of the chemistry between Vlad and Leila was positively sizzling as they learned more about each other. I also liked the character of Leila quite a lot as well because even though she tried to avoid using her power in the beginning of the book she eventually embraced it which made her one of my favorite heroines.
