She's a mortal cursed with dark power...

After a tragic accident scarred her body and destroyed her dreams, Leila never imagined that the worst was still to come: a terrifying ability to channel electricity and to see 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, threatening to consume them. It will take everything they have to stop an enemy intent on bringing them down in flames.

Review:

"In this rambunctious series debut, Frost (One Grave at a Time) introduces sassy heroine and circus performer Leila 'Frankie' Dalton, who accidentally reveals the psychic spying powers she acquired in childhood. These powers attract vampire kidnappers, from whom she is rescued by rival vampire Vlad. He sweeps her off to his Romanian castle, where passion and peril develop alongside overwhelming subplots of vampire romantic rivalry. Amid spirited sparring, the predictable growth of Leila's initial impulses culminates in steamy scenes. As her attachment to Vlad deepens, her character acquires greater understanding and depth; though she never loses her initial archness, it becomes intertwined with other emotions. Leila's increasingly romantic vision of Vlad leads to readiness for self-sacrifice in a showdown with the hostile vampire who directed her initial kidnapping. Frost sustains the reader's interest by channeling the action through feisty Leila, and though a lavish use of would-be witticisms begins to grate, determined fans will appreciate the transition to stereotypical sensuality.

Synopsis:

“An author who delivers only the best.”
—Romantic Times

“Put Jeaniene Frost on your must-read list!”
—Lara Adrian, New York Times bestselling author

Spinning off from her wildly successful, New York Times bestselling Night Huntress novels featuring vampire soulmates Cat and Bones, Jeaniene Frost kicks off the thrilling new Night Prince series with Once Burned. Vlad Tepesh, the ruthless master vampire and inspiration for Bram Stokers dark legend (but dont dare call him Dracula) encounters a mortal woman with unimaginable power… including the ability to enflame his cold heart. Paranormal romance and urban fantasy fans who hunger for the novels of Kim Harrison, Christine Feehan, and Charlaine Harris are going to love The Night Prince and this dark and steamy tale of supernatural attraction.

Our Review by LITERAL ADDICTION's Pack Alpha - Michelle L. Olson:

I've been a Jeaniene Frost, Night Huntress fan since day #1. I love Cat & Bones, and have a soft spot for Spade, but I have been in love with Vlad since he was first introduced in the series and would anxiously await any parts in the novels where he would be called in for one reason or another. That all being said, I was anxiously awaiting this book and actually feared I may have been expecting too much since I was so excited for it. I needn't have feared, Jeaniene delivered and then some!

Once Burned gives us Vlad (THE man that ALL of the Dracula myths were based upon) in all his sexy, cocky, powerful, undead glory, and introduces a loveable, relate-able heroine and some villains that you will absolutely love to hate.

Leila is human, but with some 'extras'. She is able to conduct electricity through her body, and is psychometric. In attempting to deal with her 'additions', she's sequestered herself in a small town with a family of traveling carnies and is working as a trapeze artist. After being snatched up by some bad guys, she's thrown into a world that she knew existed, but never thought to be immersed in, and finds herself directly linked to a powerful vampire who's apparently #1 on everyone's hit list.

Vlad, having his mind reading abilities in addition to his pyromania, realizes when he's being spied upon psychically by Leila. The 2 are inevitably thrown together to sort out the wicked plot that is not only jeopardizing Vlad and Leila's lives, but that of their friends as well.

Leila is a great strong heroine and in my personal opinion, a wonderful match for Vlad. The two together are dynamic and explosive and the best part is that Leila's no damsel in distress. She's definitely her own woman, and while Vlad doesn't change for her either (thank goodness - he remains the same arrogant, sarcastic, sometimes merciless but never without a reason Vlad we've come to know and love), he accepts her feisty side and even encourages it.

Take these two utterly fantastic leading characters and throw them into the Night Huntress world that never fails to amaze with an action packed storyline full of intrigue, danger, twists, turns, and surprises around most corners, etc and you end up with one incredible read!

The first installment of the Night Prince series spin-off was an amazing addition to the Night Huntress World.

My only complaint was the abrupt ending because dang it... I want the next book NOW!

LITERAL ADDICTION gives Once Burned 5 Skulls and is eagerly anticipating the next book in the series.

Vlad uses fear and torture to keep the ones around him loyal. So when he realizes he is being spied on he does what Vlad does best he threatens to kill that person. But what he never expected is that that spy is going to ask him for help, ask him to save her and in doing so will change both of their paths forever.

Leila just wants to live in peace or what little peace she can find. But it is really hard to do that when you just got kidnapped by three very nasty and hungry looking vampires. Forced to use her power to try to get answers for them, Leila finds herself connecting to another vampire. And this vampire may be her only hope to make it out of this room alive.

I wanted to give this 5 stars maybe even 4 1/2 but it was a 4 for me. I guess I have not been paying attention to the Frost world. I was totally shocked that Vlad's story is told by the heroine (just like all of Cat & Bones stories are from Cat's point of view) Lelia. I was hoping for more insight on the man we have all come to love.

I enjoyed this story. I am very happy that Vlad finally gets his story told. We do learn more about the man behind the myth of Dracula. Although I would have loved to have seen many parts of this story through Vlad’s point of view.

Vlad & Leila make a great team. Both are stubborn, determined and will do anything for the people close to them. I loved that Leila challenges Vlad every step of the way. I can’t wait to see where Jeaniene takes us next on Vlad & Leila’s journey. Sadly we have to wait until Spring of 2013 for the next Night Prince novel to come out. But I think it will be worth the wait.
