Review Once burned

Once burned by Jeaniene Frost

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.

My rating: 

This book only made me love Vlad even more! I'm so happy that this is not just a stand alone book! Vlad is a great character, so much fun. And that cover *swoon*
Leila is also a great character! Strong and fights for what she cares about. She is part of a travaling cirucs where she does an act on a trampoline, but she also has some unusual powers. She can produce electrical currents with skin to skin contact. This happened when she had an accident that also left her scarred down one side of her body. Leila gets kidnapped by other vamps and are forced to use her powers. She ends up with Vlad after promising him that she is not leading him into a trap. And after that she comes to live with him. As you can imagine, this turns into more. Vlad is never unsure that she will end up his, but she can's have his heart.. “I can give you honesty, monogamy, and more passion than you can stand, but not love. That emotion died in me long ago, as I suspect you already know.” -Vlad in Once Burned.

This is just another Jeaniene Frost book I love and a must read! 
I was really hoping to see a little more Bones so there could be more of him and Vlad arguing, but I can hope for that in the coming books I guess. Just happy Cat and Bones showed up really, even just for a little while. 


  1. This one sounds like such a good read! I can't wait to finally get my hands on a copy. Great review :)
