Jeaniene lives in North Carolina with her husband and enjoy reading, poetry, watching movies, exploring old cemeteries, spelunking and traveling (by car) when she’s not writing. Airplanes, children and cook books frighten her.
From an early age Jeaniene was drawn to the strange. She would sneak out and watch horror movies at every opportunity, much to her parents’ dismay of course. At the tender age of 12 she began writing poetry. Shortly after that, she read her first romance novel, and it was love at first read! She knew she wanted to write her own novels someday, but figured she had plenty of time to do so. With that attitude, she didn’t actually start writing seriously until she was almost thirty.
When she finally sat down to do it, she knew it had to have her two favorite elements in it: urban fantasy and romance. Everyone has a favorite Supe Group. For Jeaniene it’s vampires. The first time she went to Sunday school, her minister pointed to the cross on the wall and asked her if she knew what it stood for. With all of the logic of an awestruck 5 year old, she seriously replied, “Yes, that’s what keeps the vampires away!” She’s been hooked on vampires ever since.
Twice Tempted, book #2 of the NIGHT PRINCE series
by Jeaniene Frost
Synopsis: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. Though Leila is a mere mortal, she's also a modern woman who refuses to accept the cold shoulder treatment forever–especially from the darkly handsome vampire who still won't admit that he loves her.
Like choosing between eternal love and a loveless eternity...
Soon circumstances send Leila back to the carnival circuit, where tragedy strikes. And when she finds herself in the crosshairs of a killer who may be closer than she realizes, Leila must decide who to trust– the fiery vampire who arouses her passions like no other or the tortured knight who longs to be more than a friend? With danger stalking her every step of the way, all it takes is one wrong move to damn her for eternity.
I love Cat and Bones, but Vlad and his leading lady... Mmmm, mmm, mmmm! Simply incredible!
Book #2 of the NIGHT PRINCE series picks up where Once Burned left off, but focuses on the tension filled relationship between Leila and Vlad. He has everything to offer her and is willing to give it all, except the one thing that she wants above all else, his love.
Leila is an incredible heroine. She's strong, confident, not willing to settle, and above all, she's not perfect... she has many faults, but they make her who she is and that's precisely why I love her.
Vlad is one of my favorite heroes. He's cocky, ruthless, powerful and sexy as all get out. His insistence that he can't ever give Leila the love that she wants makes for a very tension filled tale in this installment, but also creates an amazing opportunity for character growth of our hero. It was wonderful read.
I adored this book, easily give it 5 Skulls, definitely recommend it, and can't wait for the final book of the trilogy. The next Night Huntress book teaser at the end was very welcome as well. :)
