Title: Twice Tempted
Series: A Night Prince Novel #2
Author: Jeaniene Frost
Genre: Fiction, Romance
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.
There was so much emotion in this story. The adrenaline never left my body, it was an exhilarating ride from beginning to end. Twice Tempted met all of my expectations of a well written sequel, with double the excitement, double the arrogance and double the steamy scenes between feisty Leila and sexy Vlad. Swoon…Heat stroke.
Leila agreed to a relationship with the world famous vampire, Vlad Dracul, He’d warned her though, that he could give her everything except for love. Her friend Marty warned her that Vlad would only break her heart. Guess she should’ve listened.
Leila,-realizing she loves Vlad-decides she can’t settle for half and decides to go back to her old life in Florida, with her heart in pieces and not a clue as to how to begin to put her life back together.
“I can barely stand the sight of you because you’re more beautiful than I’ve allowed myself to remember.”
Soon things go sour, someone out there wants Leila dead and she must once again trust the vampire that holds her heart, but won’t let her into his.
“You should be afraid. Very afraid. Before, I told you if you wanted to end things between us, I would let you go, but, Leila”–his voice deepened–“I lied.”
Vlad is so infuriating but oh dear, I just can’t get enough of him. His enigmatic, blunt personality reduces me to a mushy pile of girly goo. He is such an arrogant ass, that you want to slap him as much as you want to kiss him. I loved seeing his emotional growth in this book though, Vlad might be all powerful, scary Prince of the Night but when it comes to Leila, he’s met his match. He is convinced that Leila doesn’t really love the real him and of course Leila won’t have that, she is determine to prove him wrong. Leila knows deep in her heart that Vlad must love her, and she will get him to admit it, whatever the cost.
There is a lot happening in this sequel, emotions are running high and low as old enemies resurface. Will Leila and Vlad be able to overcome the struggles that threaten to break them apart?
“How often must I tell you that you mean more to me than vengeance? I can live without defeating my enemies, but I cannot live without you.”
You must read this amazing book, I can’t say it enough, Frost weaves a story like very few can. She is the master of the night and the world she created in this series comes to life as you read. Vlad is such a vividly written character that is hard to believe he is a fictional.
“Looks like we’re having angry sex after all.”
