Joint review with Aly to come soon :)
Btw, I LOVED it ;)
March 2013!?!?!?!?!?!?!? Oh my God....please time go by fast!!!

"The dress, the fancy dinner, all your flattering words, then the jewelry box." I ticked the items off on my fingers. "Really, what was I supposed to think?" His snort cut me to the bone. "Anything but that. You and I have been together mere months. Do you know how insignificant that is to someone my age?" A fresh wave of hurt made my tone scalding. "Yes, you're almost six hundred years old, but in today's world, when you say things like 'eternal bond' before giv12/5/2015"The ...more
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.
The marriage thing was a little too soon for me but who am I? Vlad did it to please Leila, some kind of human formality thing.
I also felt bad for Vlad because he lost two of his closest friends. I was getting the traitor vibe from Maximus but Shrapnel? I didn't see that one coming. Too bad, I really liked him. (hide spoiler)]
Leila was even more stubborn in this book. My goodness, sometimes it was a little too much. How many times did she almost die in this book? She also became clingy which kind of irked my irritation, however, she still kicks major butt. Go girl.
The whole story pretty much revolved around Leila trying to stay "alive", Vlad trying to save her, accept as well as admit his feelings and the blossoming of their relationship (blossoming? wtf?).
Lastly, Yay for book 3! I think this was supposed to be a 2-book thing but hah! This book didn't even show the main baddie so I'm hoping that the 3rd book would have action packed butt kicking.
On a completely unrelated note, Up From the Grave is next. Hoorah! I miss Cat and Bones, they'll always be number one. :) I couldn't even read the excerpt, don't wanna torture myself with it. ...more
Wonder when we will see Maximus again.
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 hi ...more

5 Searing Stars!! That's what I’m talking about! BURN BABY BURN…Vlad set me on Fire!!
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's for other re ...more
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.
But in this book I almost didn't reco ...more
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 throw up. ...more
"I'd rather bleed to death."
"If you were anyone else, those would be your last words."
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.
"That's sick, I breathed."
Nobody probably cares about that except for me, I'm guessing. It's hard for me to imagine though, to figure out how gruesome Vlad should be portrayed, while he's still somehow supposed to be a love interework. ...more
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 back to her carnival home.
But soon ...more
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 reading any other connected books (but I still urge you to rea ...more
I've read Once Burned, and I'm completely and utterly satisfied! Ms. Frost never fails to impre ...more
So I'm gonna say it again:
When there's a vampire in a Paranormal Romance...he will eventually chomp on the heroine's Happy Bean!
Case in point:

All thought cleared my mind when his fangs replaced his tongue, piercing my clitoris instead of licking it.
Of course that has nothing to do with the review, but I thought you guys might like to know what exactly your ladies are reading. Word to the wise,/>
I need this sooner. Pleeease.
I need more Vlad. Shirtless Vlad, please. And more Maximus.
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.
One of my problems was Gretchen. If I hear that bitch talking trash about my c ...more

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

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.

“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/> ...more
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 ...more
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.
Leila has finally had it with Vlad when we pick up shortly after the last book ended. She decides that if Vlad can't admit ...more
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.
All the romance and intense feelings ...more
“Flying at high speeds through a forest is less dangerous than it looks. At least thats what I told mysef the few imes I opened my eyes.”
Every time I start one of Jeanine Frost’s books, I’m instantly thrown into an amazing world where this new character (another possible future love of my life) is performing some daring feat.
Both Leila and Vlad experience some/> ...more
"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.."
Uh..Vlad...he totally had me at "Hello!!" LOL Of course he is still his sarcastic self that takes no crap from anybody, and he still gets o ...more
“Being emotional is seen as a weakness among vampires. Vlad knows his enemies would fall on him like wolves if they suspected that weakness in him.”
This really says it all about Vlad for me. He just comes across sooo cold and sooo mean that sometimes it's hard to remember the guy he is around Cat and the man he could be for Leila.
One of the things that I mentioned in my review for Once Burned is that I couldn't wait for Leila to break down Vlad's walls and boy, does she do that in spades! I just hated ...more
