Review: Twice Tempted (Night Prince #2)

Dating the prince of darkness has its choosing between eternal love and a loveless eternity..."

Twice Tempted, by Jeaniene Frost, is the second novel in the Night Prince trilogy. Leila's psychic abilities are malfunctioning and she does not know what the future holds for her. Even worse, her darkly handsome vampire lover, Vlad, has been acting distant around her. Although a mere mortal, Leila refuses to accept the cold shoulder treatment. She abruptly leaves his Romanian castle and heads back home to the United States.

Circumstances change, however, when when Leila arrives back at the carnival circuit. A bomb explodes, killing those close and dear to her. She later learns that the explosion was targeted for her, and the killer may be closer than she realizes. As a result, Leila decides to take matters into her own hands and find the killer before she ends up in an early grave. Meanwhile, Vlad must determine whether to confess his feelings for Leila or lose her to a enemy bent on revenge.

Frost delivers another wonderful edition to the Night Prince series, an off-shot to the Night Huntress series featuring Cat and Bones. In this series, Master vampire, Vlad Tepesh (also known as Dracula, although he rather not be called that name) gets his own side-story featuring the dangers he must endure to protect the woman he loves. I love the fact that he gets a trilogy for Frost fans to indulge and savor. The plot is both intriguing and suspenseful that it will take both lovers to solve this mystery. I won't spoil the details, but I highly recommend this mini-series.

Stay tuned for the final novel in the Night Prince series, Bound by Flames.
