About this Book:
She's a mortal with dark powers...
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...
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 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.
Oh my Vlad!!!! I have loved this character, so deeply that I completely flipped when I found she was to creating a series solely for him. Once Burned started very differently from other Frost novels leaving me wondering if this story would have the splendor that every other Jeaniene Frost novel is known for. No longer than it took for this thought to process the pace of this novel took off like a bullet. While Leila and Vlad are no Cat and Bones this has started another incredible journey that Frost readers will be desperate to explore. Uncharacteristically to Frost Novels it appears love will be a struggle for the Night Prince novels. Fans will sympathize with Leila future battle to overcome Vlad memories and carefully constructed walls. This has also been the first human to have such incredibly unique powers, and I can wait to see if the future will hold a transformation for her as well. Like so many other times with Frost novels we are left in suspense til spring of 2013. I absolutely do not know how I will survive this time!
