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 never turned any of my previous lovers because I didn’t want them to feel how little I cared. You I loved, yet you left me because I wouldn’t verbalize my emotions. That will probably happen again, but if you could feel what you mean to me, Leila” —his voice deepened— “words wouldn’t matter.” 

I absolutely loved TWICE TEMPTED. I loved it even more than the first in the Night Prince Series, Once Burned. I think I just liked the plot more this time and I enjoyed it 10X MORE!. I am at this point wishing Mencheres & Spade had a second book! You'll quickly become addicted to Vlad and totally glad that you are!

“Vlad made a sound too harsh to be a growl. "You won't be satisfied until you've brought me to my knees, is that it?" "Why not?" It shot out of me with all the recklessness of my still-broken heart. "You brought me to mine.” 

Vlad was amazing as usual and I just love that man! I love my Alpha men the most for the most swoon worthy quotes the sputter from their mouths and I seen Vlad in a different light in this book. He truly shows that he ultimately cares and loves Leila. I was like so what if those three little words don't pop out of Vlad's mouth, how can she not know that he loves and cares for her. I believe actions can show you better than words sometimes. But I understand Leila wanting more.

I let out a scoff. “I’m not trying to fight his enemies for him.” “In his eyes you are, and worse, you’re ready to die to do it.”

Leila mostly annoyed me in this book and I think she did a little bit in the last book as well, I just can't remember. She's human and she puts herself in danger all the time. There were few times where she could've avoided the danger, but she does it anyway. I know it the way of many heroines, but it just bothered me more with her. Maybe because she seemed so needy and stubborn at times that I kind of became fed up with it all.

“You’ve never had angry sex. I’m about to show you what you’ve been missing.”

Vlad and Leila as a couple, OMFG! Spark Fly! I loved everything! Things happened in TWICE TEMPTED that I didn't even think were going to happen in this book or possibly not at all. Leila being kidnapped again? Ooooohhhh! BIG SHOCKER! I mean, really! She was kidnapped?! GASP! Vlad offered Leila a lot of things in this book that should make her feel like his queen! And we got to see Vlad and his reasoning for the one thing Leila wants from his lips.

“Fourteen hundred and thirty-one.” I blinked. “What’s that?” “The year I was born, which is not, as you’ll note, yesterday.” I stifled a groan. Busted already.

TWICE TEMPTED ended like out of nowhere and I really think that is something Jeaniene Frost NEEDS to work on. Her endings of her books. Possibly include an Epilogue, I don't know. It was like where's the rest?! Anyway, I'm happy because at the end includes an excerpt for the next Cat and Bones book, SQWEEEEEE! And I'm freaking excited!

“Yeah, well, Bones and I had a couple months of relative quiet. Guess it’s time to liven things up again.”


  1. I loved this book so much. Like you, the ending had me flipping pages back and forth wondering if I was missing pages or something. The ending wasn’t really an “ending”. Left me wanting more, then that glimpse of Cat and Bones left me wanting more of them. I think I will completely go nuts waiting for the next books.

  2. Yeah. Ended suddenly. But I was so happy for the Cat and Bones excerpt! And it looks like the next Cat and Bones book is gonna be good! Can’t wait! Miss them!

  3. AWESOME review! I cannot wait to read this one, but first I feel like I need to get to some poorly neglected review books. But right after those 3, I’ll be reading me some Vlad! Glad to hear it was supremely incredible!

  4. Yea. I know what you mean. I’m going on a strike to catch up on books for series I have started and haven’t finished or at least read half of them for this year before starting a new series. I hope I’ll be able to do it.

  5. I really enjoyed this one; I don’t think that there’s a single thing that I disliked! Too bad you didn’t connect with Leila. Maybe the third book will be the charm!

  6. Haha! I still liked it. I think with all the Night Huntress World books I will most likely never fully give a 5 star rating b/c I feel like it has to be as awesome as the Cat and Bones books. So 4 stars is good in my book.

  7. I just finished reading this book not an hour ago and absolutely loved it. I loved Vlad even more in this book and can’t wait to see more of them in future books. And, I tend to agree, I want to see more of Mencheres and Spade BUT I want more Cat and Bones too and if Frost is busy with these other books I’m not getting more Bones. ;)

  8. Haha! Me too! I had stayed up late reading it and finished it in the morning. Was really good. Vlad was awesome in this book! Haha! Well at least Cat and Bones book is coming next whenever that is. I just hope in the future sometime that I get another Mencheres & Spade book.

  9. Love your review! I loved this book as well! I can not wait for the next one now! And I was so excited about Vlad finally “waking up” he and Lelia are perfect for each other. :)
