Publisher's Summary

She's a mortal cursed with dark power....

After a tragic accident scarred her body and destroyed her dreams, Leila never imagined that the worst was still to come: a terrifying ability to channel electricity and to see 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, passion ignites, threatening to consume them. It will take everything they have to stop an enemy intent on bringing them down in flames.

    "Great as always"

    As always Jeaniene Frost writes a great story but I found that this story was not as all enthralling as usual. The actual story did not grab me which is disapointing as I was so looking forward to Vlad"s stories. I just hope that the next one is better

    Story
    "A must read for J. Frost fans!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Once Burned to be better than the print version?

    I love the audio performances. Hearing the voices of the characters brings them more alive for me. I am able to listen and comprehend the story better than reading it.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Vlad, of course. He is the ultimate bad boy. He says and does things that other would not do.


    Have you listened to any of Tavia Gilbert???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to all the J. Frost books. I love tavia. You know exactly who is speaking when she is reading.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    You think you know who Vlad Tepish is? You haven't even come close. Meet the real man behind the legend!


    Any additional comments?

    Keep the stories coming!!

    Story
    "love Tavia and Jeanien togther!"

    I love that Jeannine doesn't use the same tired boring story for each of her books (unlike some anthers). She has given Vlad his own unique tale to tell. She did her own research and based him on the real Vlad the impaler instead of using “Dracula” as her base. This book is a must read for fans of the Night Huntress world!

    "I love a good Frost book!"

    This book fit right into the Night Huntress world, only this time focusing on Vlad! I was very surprised by the ending, but in a good way because it means there will be another installment coming up!

    Story
    "Burn baby burn"
    Where does Once Burned rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I can only compare it to the Night Huntress novels. Since he is another spin-off from the series. On a scale of 1 thru 5 I give it a 3 1/2. Simply because book 2 should kick butt! It felt like J.F. was holding back and I believe she's saving it for book 2.


    What other book might you compare Once Burned to and why?

    Any of the Night Huntress books. Vlad is dangerous, scary and funny. It has everything I need in a book. A Naive, mentally tortured and lonely female meets crazed, sexy, dangerous and lonely Prince of boogie men. Characters to love, dislike and hate. Love it!! Leila's family is wonderfully dysfunctional, what's not to like.


    What about Tavia Gilbert’s performance did you like?

    The accents are AWESOME!!!! It amazes me she can keep them them straight.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes. Vlad's character is always amusing. Now I get to laugh at his henchmen antics too. I laughed a lot.


    Any additional comments?

    Great Vlad has his on series, now we get to listen to more of his story line and day to day life. Waiting on more of the love triangle between Leila, Vlad and Max. I am waiting for book 2, out of all the characters from the Night Huntress series Vlad is more entertaining. That's saying a lot, I am a huge Bones fan. :-)

    One of my favorite.

    It's funny and action packed.

    She brings life to the different characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The relationship with her family.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved the ending; can't wait till the next book comes out.
