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.

In short Vlad was pretty much an ass in this book. To those who only read Night Prince they would see him that way but I've read the entire Night Huntress Series and Night Huntress World so I kind of know where he was coming from. Quite frankly I'm a little disappointed because I felt he lost some of his edge. I thought he became soft. Hehe Leila got to him.

You know, Vlad was just so awesome in this one. However, I can already see him slipping into Frost's default "whatever you wish, darling" male characters. I would really like if the character remained mostly the same as they were before meeting their love. But I wish the ending wasn't so fast. It ended when it was finally interesting;).
Wonder when we will see Maximus again.

So good!

Leila is furious!
Maybe it is because Leila has lost her “gift” and she feels helpless....
Maybe it is because Vlad does not seem to care for her needs (There is no bathroom in his room!)...
Maybe it is because Vlad wants to make her a vampire (Doesn't he like the fact that she is a puny human?)...
Maybe it is because this wedding proposal is not offered...
...So...Leila leaves Vlad and surprisingly Vlad lets her abandoning him.

I really, really don't know what to do with this book... I can't even decide how to rate it (I change my mind every ten minutes). It had moments where I wanted to clap my hands and have a little happy dance and then I'd read something and want to close the book and save myself the disappointment. I wanted to cry at some points because all my expectations turned to dust!

FINALLY we get the sexy, snarky Vlad we have come to love from The Night Huntress series! This book was so much better than the first one. Leila grew into her character and Vlad has come back to us!! They will never be Cat and Bones, and I wouldn’t want them to be, but they are a unique fun couple in their own right. The steam factor was off the charts, they don't call him 'The Impaler' for nothing. Actually it

4.5 fiery Dracula stars!

Loved this Vlad follow up!! Leila and Vlad are my 2nd favorite couple in the Night Huntress World (second only to Cat and Bones of course). Leila is by far the best heroine of the spin-offs. She's a strong, admirable lady and I love that she refuses to be second best in life and stands by her choices.

Great plot, great angst, and a great romance. I highly recommend the Night Prince series and it can be easily read without

Twice Tempted by Jeaniene Frost

Night Prince series, book 2. You should read the prior book for the best context.
This book travels far in terms of changes for Leila. At first Leila thinks Vlad is going to propose but when that doesn’t happen, she walks away from him. An attempt is made on her life and then events are happening fast and spinning out of control.
Often bloody and violent, the story is full of vampires making their own lives important, even if at the cost of others. But like life, t
Spoilers… A Very Long, Ranty and Disorganised Review

What the hell was this? I thought Once Burned was an okay read - it was cliched and predictable but it had its entertaining moments. I obviously didn't expect much from Twice Tempted but I didn't think it'd be this fucking awful. It was positively horrible.

I'm even more pissed because I loved Cat and Bones's books (even though the last few have been boring) and I quite liked Spade and Mencheres's books too. Sadly, Vlad's books make me want to
I still don't understand what happened to the characters I met in the first book.
I really enjoyed the first book. I liked both Vlad and Leila. I loved the whole mystery surrounding his character, his darkness, his arrogance and his possessive unapologetic behavior. I loved Leila's innocence, her bravery and her struggle to understand and control her powers. I also like that she feared him, but at the same time felt this uncontrollable pull towards him.

3.5 stars. Maybe we're not quite at the point of pure Vlad depth but at least this time we got to see more tyranny at work.
Two vampires hung from the spiked silver chains embedded in the rock, a third impaled in front of them.

Twice Tempted is 2nd book in the Night Prince Series which is set in Jeanine Frost’s Night Huntress world and continues Vlad & Leila’s love story….which is still going thru some “bumpy” times.

Vlad is still a commitment phobe…struggling to let go of the demons in his past and giving in to his feelings for Leila.

Leila wants more than just being Vlad’s bedmate and when he offers her immortality instead of telling her that he loves her….she decides that’s it….leave Romania and go b

I haven't read Once Burned, and here I am, craving for the second book of Night Prince series. I'll say it out loud, I love Vlad! There! Vlad is my favorite character aside from the-obvious-Bones. He, alongside with Ian, seems to have a sick humor. They are interesting! I want Vlad's book to be more than 2 books, and I want Ian to have his own story! Make it happen, Ms. Frost! :D

I've read Once Burned, and I'm completely and utterly satisfied! Ms. Frost never fails to impress me!

I loved it because I love everything Jeaniene Frost writes and because I really liked Vlad, Leila and Maximus in Once Burned. Besides, Vlad was one of my favorite characters in the Night Huntress series. But I still have a few problems with it.

Dear Vlad,

Last year I wrote a sincere letter spilling my feelings. Now I have to confess that I wanted to punch you in the face when this book started and almost through the halfway mark. But I should also apologize because I should’ve never doubted how magnificent you are. The epitome of everything alpha male that I love and crave. You can be ruthless and you can be sweet. Scorching and yet oh so tender and romantic. But you are always YOU. Who would’ve thought I would fall more i

I loved this book so much!

His lips curled into something that wasn’t quite a smile. “You don’t really want me to love you, Leila.”
I let out a soft scoff. “Is that what you tell yourself?”
“It’s what I know,” he said, a touch of anger coloring his tone.

Possible spoilers ahead

With Leila’s abilities leaving her after Vlad saved her at the end of the previous book and Vlad distancing himself from her, Leila isn’t sure what the future holds for her. But she refuses to accep

Re-read Feb 2019 with the Girls at BB&B. Vlad, maybe I like you a little more the second time around.

“You can have all of me, I silently told him, but I'm taking all of you in return.”

Leila is an all or nothing kind of girl, Vlad is a my way or the highway kind of guy. Those two attributes don’t always go so well together and personalities definitely clash at times throughout the book. Just when Leila is sure that Vlad’s brother is dead and she is safe she returns to her old life only to fin

I liked this one better than the first book. There was tons of action, we got more insight into Vlad's feelings (which were deep) and Leila continued to be pretty kick ass.

Leila had to take a hard stand with Vlad. Good for her! I actually appreciated the drama and angst because it helped develop and deepen their relationship.

Vlad's sociopathy is actually amusing. I know that sounds sick but his love of impaling enemies was a little funny.

His ex being a plot device could have really bothered me

Twice Tempted in the second book in the Night Prince series by Jeaniene Frost.

When this ARC copy arrived in my mailbox I screamed like a little girl. My neighbors looked at me funny. My dogs took cover thinking I was finally losing it. My family even wondered if I had finally lost it. Vlad, oh-sweet-lord-above-Vlad, how you love to mess with my heart.

Twice Tempted is the second book in the Night Prince series. If you haven’t read the first book, then you shouldn’t read my review because you should stop what you are doing and pick up Once Burned ASAP.

I was curious to see how Twice Tempted would go. The book starts off where Once Burned left off. Leila leaves Vlad because Vlad couldn’t admit he loved her.

Gah, the angst and the love and the passion. I couldn’t get enough of it.

Leila is traveling back to the carnie life.

This was more of a 4.5 star read but I bump it up to 5 stars (lost one star because of pricing shenanigans) because I can. The price was not set by the publisher, so it qualifies per my rating policy. Suck on that A6ers! *ETA* Ooooooh. Color me with egg all over my face. This may not have been Agency priced but the price dropped a lot a week or two after release. So if you're a loyal fan and you preorder then *insert two middle fingers*.

Jeaniene Frost still dances gracefully on that fine line between paranormal romance and urban fantasy. Her books are a perfect combination of paranormal mystery and steaming romance, and while her Night Huntress series seems to be suffering from a serious decline in quality, the Night Prince trilogy is moving in the other direction.

When Frost decided to promote Vlad from a secondary character in her Night Huntress series to the love interest/main character in a trilogy of his very own, she had
