Book Description

March 11 2013 Night Prince (Book 2)

Dating the Prince of Darkness has its challenges . . .

Leila's psychic abilities have been failing her, and now she isn't sure what the future holds. If that weren't enough, her lover Vlad has been acting distant. Though Leila is a mere mortal, she's also a modern woman who refuses to accept the cold shoulder treatment forever—especially from the darkly handsome vampire who still won't admit that he loves her . . .

Like choosing between eternal love and a loveless eternity . . .

Soon circumstances send Leila back to the carnival circuit, where tragedy strikes. And when she finds herself in the crosshairs of a killer who may be closer than she realizes, Leila must decide who to trust—the fiery vampire who arouses her passions like no other or the tortured knight who longs to be more than a friend? With danger stalking her every step of the way, all it takes is one wrong move to damn her for eternity . . .

Readers are in for a story that is emotionally intense, chock full of danger and violence and loaded with flaming passion. What more could you want? (Romantic Times BOOKclub)

“I always open a Frost book with happy anticipation.” (Charlaine Harris)

“A stay-up-until-sunrise read… There are many Draculas out there, but only one Vlad, and you owe it to yourself to meet him.” (Ilona Andrews, New York Times bestselling author of the Kate Daniels series)

“Fantastic.” (Ilona Andrews, New York Times bestselling author of the Kate Daniels series)

“Frost never shies away from forcing her protagonists to face both internal and external demons. That character complexity is the major reason for her series impressive success. Frost’s dazzling blend of urban fantazy action and passionate relationships makes her a true phenomenon.” (Romantic Times Reviews)

“...rambunctious series debut...” (Publishers Weekly on ONCE BURNED)

5.0 out of 5 stars Very satisfying March 26 2013
By Jen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
As much as I enjoyed Once Burned, I really think this sequel delivers just as much! It's sexy; it's heartfelt; and it's got just enough intrigue and action to keep me glued to the page, without ever detracting from the romance.

I hate to say it, but as the story began, I wasn't really happy with Vlad. If you'll recall, he is determined that love will never play a part in his life again. This is a real problem, since Leila is head over heels for him. The great thing about her, though, is that she refuses to settle for anything less than his heart. And while it shreds her to do it, she walks away from the only man she's ever loved. And he lets her go.

Of course, they don't stay apart. Someone targets Leila and that brings her back into Vlad's life faster than you blink. But who is out to kill her and why? Where does the sexy and eager Maximus fall into her life? Can she ever break Vlad's cool exterior and find his feelings underneath? Can the sex surpass the infamous chapter 32?

I won't spoil the answers... OK... I'll answer that last one with a resounding yes. The sex was molten hot here. Scorching. Wow. Thank you, Jeaniene Frost.

I've loved Vlad since he first entered the Cat and Bones world and he grows so much in this book. I never thought I could love him more, but now I do. He is violent and tyrannical and controlling; but once we end up exposed to the emotions he works so hard to tamp down, we also see the fierce love and loyalty in him. Meanwhile, I respected the heck out of Leila for not settling. She manages to hold on to her backbone without being bitchy or diminishing her love for Vlad. And Frost does a great job showing us that it's the real man she loves, not an idealized version of him. Sometimes it's messy; sometimes it's hard; but it's real. And I totally believed it.

Really good.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite Jeaniene Frost books March 26 2013
By Stephanie G (Reviewer for Paranormal Haven) - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
He has immense power, wealth, and the ability to offer eternal youth yet all Leila wants from her vampire boyfriend is the one thing he claims he can never offer anyone. When she can no longer take Vlad's refusal to love her, Leila moves back to the states and returns to her job working at a carnival. After there's an explosion that proves to be intentional, Leila is pushed back into the immortal world and needs to figure out who to trust and who won't stop until she's dead.

Leila has made my very short list of favorite heroines. I've loved Vlad since his first appearance in the Night Huntress series but kudos to Leila for not accepting his 'I love no one and if walk away it's over for good' attitude. It didn't make for an easy read but I respect her for it. It's more than just this reason why I like Leila. When an explosion nearly kills her, Leila has to figure out who is behind the attempt on her life and who she can trust because loyalties are not what they once were. A lesser person wouldn't have been able handle all this on top of heartbreak but Leila keeps pushing through and battles against the odds. She's not perfect but her faults in addition to her strengths are what makes her a top notch heroine.

Vlad is the same ruthless, commanding, fire controlling vampire I've come to adore but part of him evolves for Leila. She works her way into a part of Vlad he dismissed as dead a long time ago and his past, both emotional and ruthless, is further explored because of it. He doesn't make things easy for Leila because the depth of his feelings for her is unmatched and once she takes him down that road, there's no turning back. I believe Vlad gets better with each book he's in and here, even when he's being an ass, he's at his best.

When the focus isn't on Leila and Vlad's relationship, it shifts to the search for the person behind who is trying to kill Leila and the list of suspects hits close to home for Vlad. I don't want to give away any huge spoilers but after reading the first book, it's easy to guess how most events in Twice Tempted will unfold yet I don't think that lessens what happens. It blew all my expectations away and was a better than I anticipated and I have to say, I set the bar high. Jeaniene Frost puts a lot of passion into her characters and there's certainly no shortage with Leila and Vlad. Things are not perfectly wrapped up in a neat bow at the end but I loved it and I can't wait to see what's in store next.

4.0 out of 5 stars Smexy Vlad!!! Feb. 16 2014
By K. April Holgate - Published on Amazon.com
I am a big fan of this series, both the Night Huntress books and this delicious spin-off. Vlad is ruthless and quirky at the same time. I liked him in Cat and Bones books but he really comes into his own in these books.

Most of the first half of the book is story based, it kicks off a touch non-linear. It might throw you if you are not prepared. It added to the drama of the book, it keeps you waiting for the kidnapping to happen. The story really flows and has a steady pace.

Leila is a great character, engaging and dynamic in surprising ways. She isn't bad@$$ like Cat, but she has strength and an iron will. I love that she is getting control of her power and turning it into a weapon she can wield in defense.

Vlad is pretty much everything the Dracula stories say times ten. He is ruthless and unbending in his resolve to make people fear him as a means to protect his people. When Leila goes into his past you get more of a feeling for how he thinks. It is an important insight into his motivations. One of my favorite things about his is that though he can be so dark he has a sense of humor and wit that pops up unexpectedly. my favorite line in the whole book: "Did the guards forget to spray Febreze?" Vlad asked in mock indignation. Then he gave me a jaded look. "It s a dungeon, Leila. They re supposed to smell."...yup, I laughed out loud at that one! He is overbearing and arrogant, yet somehow so very attractive and seductive.

The steam is off the charts when it comes! Oh good lord, the dungeon sex scene is beyond hot!! I am talking burning down the house, short circuiting my iPod and sending straight to an ice bath!! Good lord, that scene alone is work the price of the book. Nobody can tell me that scene was not straight up erotic smexy lovin! Add in Tavia Gilbert's energetic narration and it was like listening top the neighbors getting it on!!

The audiobook was a delight as always. Tavia has a fantastic voice that makes the story come alive on all levels. She gives the characters depth and strength with subtle nuances in her pitch and tone. Great accents and distinct voices. She has a brilliant way of carrying action and energy into her read during key moments like battles, dangerous moments and all the lovely smexy scenes. This is why she is easily one of my favorite narrators. What an talent!

Once again the story is only from Leila's POV, but you get glimpses of others thoughts when she touches them. It helps bring understanding to their motives. I really like Leila and find her to be a strong character so I enjoy her narrative. I do wish we had more insight into Vlad, he is very difficult to get a handle on at times. You only know what he thinks and feels when he says it, even then it can be vague.

The story is very detailed and covers quite a bit of ground. It ends on a touch of a cliff hanger. While the main plot is resolved there is a thread that still needs exploring. Big changes at the end of this book, it will be very interesting to see how things develop in the final book of the trilogy. Ugh, why is December so far away!!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Vlad as a lovable character??? March 27 2013
By kitkat40 - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a hard review for me to write because I am such a huge, huge fan of Frost. But, there is just something missing from this series for me. I'm usually so connected to her characters but I am just not feeling the relationship between Leila and Vlad. I'm having difficulty buying into the fact that Vlad is a character you can love... romantically. The attempt at making Vlad desirable as a lover just didn't work for me. I spent most of the book not liking him BUT that is my point. We're not supposed to like Vlad, we're supposed to fear him. Trying to make him lovable is just too hard. I don't find it believable at all that Leila would be able to just blindly accept Vlad for the possessive, vengeful a$$ that he is in such a short amount of time and I equally don't believe that Vlad would fall so quickly.
I do love Leila's back story and her gift is very unique. I loved that Vlad was more true to his character in book two. He was an incredible arse! Unfortunately, the values that make Vlad a great character to hate also makes him a hard character to love.
So, once again I am on the fence with this series. I want to like it... I really do! But, it lacks the appeal that her Night Huntress series has. I miss the ghosts, the ghouls and the interactions with other characters that often adds an element of fun to her books. I also miss the speckles of humor that are usually present in her other books but is clearly missing in this series.
At the end of the day I didn't hate this book... but, I didn't love it either. Frost is still a good writer and the story was engaging enough for me to read through in one sitting. I will finish the series but my heart will always be more devoted to the Night Huntress series... of which I can't wait to get my hands on the next book in that series... "Up From the Grave"... bring on more Cat and Bones!

4.0 out of 5 stars It was a quick, fun ride Dec 1 2013

I Love Cat and Bones. The Night Huntress Series by Jeaniene Frost is still one of my favorite all-time series. Vlad Tepesh (Dracula) is a character from the Night Huntress Series who I loved and couldn't wait for his story. Once Burned was the first in the Night Huntress spin-off series, "The Night Prince Series". I was so disappointed in the first one (even though I still liked it), mostly because of the abrupt ending. Luckily, Twice Tempted, the second in the spin-off series was much better, and didn't leave you in such a cliffhanger state.

“You should be afraid. Very afraid. Before, I told you if you wanted to end things between us, I would let you go, but, Leila"--his voice deepened--"I lied.”

Twice Tempted ends right where Once Burned ended. Leila's psychic powers have been failing her for weeks because Vlad's aura coated her, made her fireproof and blocked her abilities. She feels useless and frustrated. Add to that, Vlad won't tell her the three words she needs to hear, and she decides to leave and head back to Marty and the carnival.

The vampire Maximus, Vlad's friend, follows her. After she is almost killed, Maximus convinces Leila that Vlad may have tried to engineer her death, and she believes him. But when Vlad finally tracks her down, he lets her know where it's at.

"No one feels like you do, so every brush of your skin is a cruel reminder of what I've lost. I can barely stand the sight of you because you're more beautiful than I've allowed myself to remember, and when I cut that wire off Maximus and smelled you all over him, I wanted to kill him more than I wanted to kill anyone in my life yet I couldn't because of my promise to you."

Well I must say, I had NO complaints about the make-up sex!

"....his grip on my wrist tightened. "Not yet."
I disagreed, and he might have my hands restrained, but my legs weren't. I hooked one around his hip and rubbed out lower bodies together, a gasp escaping me at the feel of his thick, hard flesh. His low laugh was both erotic and threatening.

"You'll enjoy regretting that."

I still miss the Vlad from the Night Huntress novels. Ruthless and funny, this Vlad seemed like a watered-down version of the Vlad I loved in the original series. Though he had a few snarky lines, I didn't get that sexy, sarcastic feeling that has incited tingles before.

“Fourteen hundred and thirty-one."
I blinked. "What's that?"
"The year I was born, which is not, as you'll not yesterday.”

In fact, Vlad lost a lot of his edge during this book and did a complete 180 during this book that seemed way too fast for someone born almost 600 years ago.

“Vlad made a sound too harsh to be a growl. "You won't be satisfied until you've brought me to my knees, is that it?"
"Why not?" It shot out of me with all the recklessness of my still-broken heart. "You brought me to mine.”

But the book still had a lot of the excitement and danger and great sex we love in Jeaniene's books.

Likes:

-I really liked the second half when there was a bit more excitement.
-Jeaniene's writing still makes the stories difficult to put down, and it was a quick, fun ride.
-A short visit from other characters.
-The end, though it has a slight cliffhanger, the events of this book wrap up.
-Great sex scenes.

Dislikes:

-The attempt at a love triangle just didn't work.
-Leila got whiny in this.
-Missing the cocky, snarky sarcasm that is so present in all of the vampires in this series.
-Vlad seemed to go from one extreme to another too quickly for someone who has been around so long.
-It needed more crossover from the Night Huntress series. Bones please!
-The price has been jumping around like crazy.

Rating: 4 Stars (barely), 4 Heat

I love Jeaniene Frost. She is still an auto-buy author for me. While this series is a little disappointing to me, I am still really enjoying it. I just don't have that "supercouple" feeling from this series. But I look forward to reading the last in Vlad's trilogy, and I do hope we don't have to wait another full year for it, but at the rate it's been going, it may be more.

“If you introduce yourself to anyone as Mrs. Dracula, I'll bite you in a manner you won't enjoy.”

***News from Jeaniene Frost is that Up From The Grave (Night Huntress 7) is now pushed to the end of the year! A whole year late!!! Well, I guess that's better than her not putting out her best work :-(
