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....

VLAD. He is my BBF. I am in love with him. He is arrogant and funny and he loves Leila so much. I want a vampire.
All of it. When she is reading I really get lost in the book. She is amazing . She really makes each character their own person and I really admire her as a reader.
There were a few it is hard to pick just one but if I have to I would have to say When he he told her why he wanted her to change into a vampire.
Way to hot!
Cat and Bones
Vlad. He is so interesting and different from most of the vamps they write about
When Vlad tries to Leila how much she means to him. He really tries to make her understand.
Only three books in this series, it's gonna be tough finding another story so compelling.
Love sci-fi books, romace books. I love to get lost into a good book.
need book three
Frankie is awesome.
This couple is just as awesome as Bones and Cat. I never want the series to end.
yes, and over and over again.
Bring on book three please please please
This one just didn't work quite as well as the first one. I like Vlad but Lila drives me a little nuts. Plus it ended on a cliff. Usually I don't mind that too much but this was a really abrupt way to end the book. I'm sure I'll give the next one a chance because usually I like her books more than this
That both leading characters got to remain true to who they are. In all relationships there is give and take but one didn't give in just to make the other happy.
They call him Vlad the Impaler, not Vlad the Emasculated.
** Spoiler **The morning after the wedding and Leila woke and in her thoughts she called herself "Mrs. Dracula" and Vlad's reaction.
As with all the Night Huntress books and spin off's there are always several things that make me chuckle. This book was no different.
Happily ... not easily... but Happily Ever After
In my opinion, a good story evokes emotion. It'll make me laugh, angry, or cry. But it can't just be words on a page. It has to do something
Spoiler Alert !!!!
Okay, we took a lot of realy, really good characters who I've been following for a while and developed individual stories around them. I love Jeaniene Frost's characters. But its getting a little old that every one of them always finds their mate and settles down. Really. I mean really? Does this have to be the formula for everything? Can't people just date around, or break up (without getting killed). Its getting too clique by now. And, all the settling down is getting old - not sure I'll get another one. I know how it will end already.
Didn't read print version, but narrator was great.
It was a good story that carries nicely from the first installment. I felt like it ended with more story to go. I read many series and there is a difference in a full story, an unfinished story and a cliffhanger(which I despise). This was an unfinished story leading to the next book which I find irritating because I feel kind of ripped off, like they just want more money for another book instead of finishing the current one.
I leave it up to you to find yours.
Yes but hate spoilers so not telling.
If you like this author you will enjoy the book which is the 2nd installment of the Night Prince series. I have liked this series which is connected to the Night Huntress series but does not have the humor found in the later, which I miss.
Jeanine Front books are my guilty pleasure. I love the fantasy, strong males and complete escapism. I might be in the minority but I prefer the Night Prince series over the Night Huntress series and mainly because Leila is more likeable than Cat.
As with all Jeanine Frost novels, it is not a nice and sweet world but one of betrayal and violence. She does ground the story by keeping the relationship or love between the characters as an absolute.
Overall, I would recommend this to anyone that enjoys modern fantasy, Vamps, magic and wants to escape reality for a few hours.
Sci-Fi, Fantasy, historical fiction, mystery, thrillers with sarcasm are my favorites.
I am an avid follower of The Night Huntress series & spin offs but I think the spin off with Vlad Tepesh is growing to be my favorite. Jeaniene Frost's books are a joy to read/listen to and Tavia Gilbert's narration is superb.
In the Night Huntress series I really enjoyed the total sarcasm & straightforwardness of Vlad but they take it to a whole new level with the Night Prince series. You get a real look inside what made him who he is and that he has a small vulnerable side.
Leila Dalton is a strong leading lady who is discovering she can have it all even after what fate left her. Her former protector Marty adds warmth & a genuine fatherly love to the story. And of course I do hope Maximus finds the gal of his dreams - le purrr.
I do hope there is a little more of Cat, Bones, Spade, Denise, Mencheres, Kira & of course the totally obnoxious Ian in the next book. The interactions of this group are always memorable.
Well let’s just turn up the fire and heat. And that is what happens with the second book of this series. Book 2 has more action and the heat is definitely turned with Vlad and Leila relationship. More interesting characters are introduced which has you thinking what ‘s next. You finally start to feel the fire between Vlad and Leila. A sexy strong alpha male who finally has to work a little for the woman he loves.
Yes get it if you liked book 1. I for one am looking forward to book 3.
